Not every killer is a damsel in distress.
Jessica DeRidder is a substitute teacher and mage in hiding, her daughter Ellen a killer on the run. Their next job
lands the mother-daughter team in Hellhole, a small town in the middle of nowhere that hosts the struggle between
the Man in White and the Wicked Witch. A struggle that has its roots in Ellen's murky past.
About the book
This is an ongoing serial, light-fantasy series in short chapters. This is a 'young adult / adult' work of fiction, which
may contain (limited) graphic scenes, poor jokes, some romance, some violence, and lots of spelling errors. It does
get a bit dark near the end, but not too dark.
About the author
I’m a single parent with two teen daughters, who had the opportunity to work in exotic places such as China, Libya,
and the Netherlands. Nothing in my regular line of work could have prepared me for the challenges of writing a
fantasy novel… or two. Or three :-) It has been quite the challenge, but also tons of fun.
(The writing of this book took copious amounts of bad poetry. Please don’t tell my kids.)
This series is not about killing parents. I love my parents, and just like many other parents mine would certainly not
condone any attempts on their lives. I'd love to tell you why I picked this title, but I simply cannot. Not yet, anyway.
And that's because I think it would be bad form to reveal the premise behind this series in the very first book. All I will
say that the act of 'killing parents' is not the start of the story, nor is it the end, but it does play a major role.
Besides, ParentKillers sounds way more cool than ‘The book series in which toxic relations and familicide happen in
book two, on page sixty four, and it will all be explained in the chapter thereafter.'
(I actually checked, and that specific page doesn’t mention anything like that, so that’s still a no!)
Prepare Kind’s Kiss for publication, and continue writing Wizard’s Way.
To be continued…
