What is Malleus Maleficarum about?
Malleus Maleficarum is a riveting tale about a young girl’s journey to freedom from her dark and unfortunate past. It follows Elena, who is a young assassin for the Dark Hearts. The Dark Hearts are a gang of murderers and monsters. After discovering that her half-brother Shane and three younger sisters passed away, Elena finally left. Elena also takes her last remaining sister, Colleen, with her.
Then she meets her love interest Nolan Sharpe, brother to a man she will marry at eighteen, Nathaniel. Elena and Colleen are adopted and start living every day happy life. Will the Dark Hearts find Elena and Colleen on Elena’s eighteenth birthday? Malleus Maleficarum is the first book in the Children of Ipswich series and will lead you into a world of magic and monsters.
What inspired Malleus Maleficarum
I was inspired by a short story I wrote in high school that I felt wasn’t finished when I wrote it. I knew it could be more, so I added the elements of witches, vampires, werewolves, demons, and ghosts. The second part of the book follows the events of the short story, so all I needed to do was add the first part, which leads to the ultimate ending of this book. I also knew I wanted it to be a series and left an opening for a second book. It will be a series of at least three books and at least two or three stand-alone books within the same universe.
The audience for Malleus Maleficarum
My target audience is anyone over 16 and up. Then anyone that loves witchcraft, vampires, werewolves, demons, and ghosts. It has everything you need, from suspense, gore, and romance. I want them to love each character and hate the characters they hate. I want my audience to wonder what will happen next. I want them to ask will my favorite character survive or will the bad guy rip away their favorite character.
My plans and goals
I aim to finish all my works in progress, including the rest of the Children of Ipswich series and standalone books. I am also working on a television script for Malleus Maleficarum. I am also working on a few movie scripts following the past events of the series. Currently, I am editing book two of the Children of Ipswich series and Dark Heart Rise; the prequel is already published on Amazon. I have at least sixteen books in progress that I am writing and six scripts I am currently working on. All of them are different genres, including romance, thrillers, and horrors, along with two more books in the Children of Ipswich series.
