    Interview with Aleese Hughes , Author of Inspector Mage

    What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Inspector Mage: Blood on the Floor?

    When I was five years old, I read Harry Potter for the first time–by myself. Ever since, I’ve had an affinity for the fantasy genre. Not long after, I got into the murder mystery genre. For years I’ve wanted to combine the two in a way that would appeal to both audiences. After writing and publishing a few books, I finally decided to buckle down and write the story I’ve always wanted to, which became The Inspector Mage Trilogy.

    What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

    My favorite genre to read would have to be the fantasy genre. There’s something special about an author creating their own world and inspiring the people who read about it. And for that very reason, fantasy is my favorite to write.

    What books are on your TBR pile right now?

    This is a loaded question. What isn’t on my TBR list? I want to catch up on all of Brandon Sanderson’s books, The Wheel of Time Series, and Sarah M. Eden’s books. And those are just a few on an ever-growing list!

    What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

    This might make me seem crazy, but my favorite scene to write in this book was the murder scene. I think every murder mystery writer must have a bit of a dark side. Something was thrilling about planning out the murder and ensuring the clues that would appear later in the story were evident.

    Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

    I really enjoy listening to epic movie soundtracks while I’m writing–especially The Lord of the Rings soundtrack.

    Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

    This is one of my favorite quotes: “Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.” – C.S. Lewis. As someone who has struggled with depression and anxiety, those words are so comforting and inspiring.

    If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

    The one thing I’d hope my readers remember is the feeling they had when they read my books. Not the plot, not the characters, but whether or not my words evoked emotion. If I could brighten even one person’s life with my books, I’d feel like I succeeded.
