Not very long ago I got to read Ten Plagues by Mary Nealy. It was one of my favorite books for 2011 and I couldn’t help but to wonder what on earth made a Christian Romance Sensation like Mary Connealy move over to the dark side. Well, I had an unreal opportunity to ask and thought I’d share our conversation:
1. What inspired you to take this foray into an inspirational thriller/mystery?
2. What is your favorite aspect of working in this different genre?
3. What was the motivation behind your choice of the ten plagues?
Except I noticed ‘discerning of spirits’. And I wondered about that. I’d never heard of anyone who had that gift. I’d heard of all the others many times. So I started to think about that one rarely referenced gift and wondered what it would be like to have it. What if a person could go up to someone and sense an evil spirit? Out of that came my heroine in Ten Plagues, a lady cop with the gift of discerning spirits who is at a crime scene and senses an evil unlike any she’d ever known. I needed a truly ugly, demonic evil and the serial killer was born.
4. Can we expect more books from Mary Nealy? (Hopefully, you can let us know if you’re working on a new book or adding to a series??)
Where can people find you on the internet?
Petticoats & Pistols
Also you can find me at Mary Connealy But I’m kind of a different person there. All very mysterious.
Well, thank you so very much for stopping by and letting us learn more about your new writing and pen name!! I can’t wait to read more!!
