Interview with Alec John Belle

What inspired you to write Fiery Passion?

When I first conceived the idea for the series, I knew it was going to be at least three books. Although the third book was initially different, long before I even wrote the first book, when I sat down and outlined things, the direction the story goes is amazing. The first book (Forbidden Darkness) was sort of lower young adult, the second book (Shadow People) upped the stakes, and Fiery Passion takes it too a whole new level. It’s darker, more twisted, and really leads into what the rest of the series will be like.

Can you tell us a little bit about the next books in The Forbidden Darkness Chronicles or what you have planned for the future?

The Forbidden Darkness Chronicles is sort of split into story arcs, even though all the characters are still present. Story Arc 1 was books 1-3, Heather’s saga of finding out she’s a Monster Hunter and discovering the world she lives in, along with the help of her friends. Although I have each of the books slightly outlined, going into Story Arc 2 I decided to do even bigger outlines and flesh out the story. The next three books are Frostbite’s Fury (book four), Angel’s Rage (book five), and Demon Cries (book six). Once those are done, I can continue into the last two books.

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Fiery Passion?

There are so any wonderful characters it’s hard to even narrow it down so the list isn’t too long! Heather Hawkins is the main character, who is the main narrator in the first book. She’s sassy, sarcastic, and is pretty driven. She likes to take matters into her own hands and sometimes that gets her into a lot of trouble! Then we have Hayden Williams, who actually gets a point of view in the second book with Heather. He’s a little less sure of himself than Heather is and a lot of his issues come from his sexuality, which his family has yet to come to terms with. He’s sometimes insecure and the Darkness (the main entity of the series causing all these problems) is drawn to him. He has all these other things that influence him to potentially go to the dark side, but overall, Hayden’s stood his ground. Finally, my favorite character is Kadin. Similar to Heather, he’s sassy and sarcastic, but almost never takes anything seriously. He’s the Vessel of Darkness in the first book and you start to see his journey between good and evil right off the bat. He’s my favorite character in the whole series, especially the scenes he has with Heather. Most readers seem to love him too!

You know I think we all have a favorite author. Who is your favorite author and why?

Well, I have one for each of the two genres I read. Ellen Hopkins is my favorite contemporary young adult author. I’ve read every single one of her books and she’s been such an inspiration for my other contemporary novels. I also love Kim Harrison, who wrote an adult paranormal series, The Hollows. It’s one of my favorite series ever, if not the favorite.

If you could time-travel would you travel to the future or the past? Where would you like to go and why would you like to visit this particular time period?

For the longest time, I would have said the past, because everyone has mistakes they’ve made. Despite that, I also wouldn’t go to the future either (I know, I’m so boring! LOL). Part of it has to do with that I’m still in recovery from depression and Bipolar, where I spend a lot of time focusing on the present. We can’t change the past, and we can yearn for the future, but we must live one day at a time. That’s the best advice I could offer anyone these days.

Do you have any little fuzzy friends? Like a dog or a cat? Or any pets?

I do! His name is Henry and he’s my best friend in the whole world! He’s some type of chihuahua mix, but we’re not exactly sure with what. I got him from the Humane Society nine months ago and could not be happier with my decision.

Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit with us today.
