Read full description of the books The Early Years:Jane Yellowrock, Faith Hunter’s badass Cherokee shape shifter, skin walker, urban fantasy heroine is described just getting started.
Maybe. There might be a lot more than it seems.
Hunter’s protagonist has memories of a time before and leaving the Bethel Nondenominational Christian Children’s Home and taking to the road helps her shed the white man’s world and return to a mountain home and helps her to come back to a time before. Jane spent about six years at the home, getting roughly socialized into an orphan’s home society, learning martial arts, learning to take care of herself in the modern world, but never complexly leaving behind the reality that she was … different.
Like Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid series, Hunter gives life to an urban fantasy that reaches deep into pre-Western myth and legend and calls on atavistic sensibilities to help her get across a really cool magic system.
Hunter’s ability to describe a paranormal sense and to be able to accurately and artistically convey a supernatural experience is highlighted in this short work that adds depth and further develops her already very potent creation.
Read information about the authorFaith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock series is a dark urban fantasy. Jane is a full blooded Cherokee skinwalker and hunter of rogue-vampires in a world of weres, witches, vampires, and other supernats.
Her Rogue Mage novels—Bloodring, Seraphs, Host, and the RPG Rogue Mage—feature Thorn St. Croix, a stone mage in a post-apocalyptic alternate reality.
The Soulwood series is a new dark-urban fantasy / paranormal police procedural /thriller series featuring Nell Nicholson Ingram.
Faith writes full-time, tries to keep house, and is a workaholic. She gave up cooking for lent one year and the oven hasn’t been turned on since. Okay – that’s a joke. She does still make cold cereal and sandwiches. Occasionally, she remembers to sweep or use the vacuum cleaner.
Faith researches in great detail, and tries most everything her characters do. Research led to her life’s passions – jewelry making, orchids, bones, travel, white-water kayaking, and writing.
Jewelry-making was the occupation of two of her characters: Thorn St. Croix, the Rogue Mage, and the main character of BloodStone, written by her pen name, Gwen Hunter. She fell in love with the art form. Faith makes, wears, and sometimes gives away her jewelry as promo items to fans and as prizes in contests. See her FaceBook Fan Page at http://www.facebook.com/official.fait... for pics. She works with stones, pearls, crystal, and glass, wire wrapping larger, undrilled, focal stones. Labradorite, Amazonite, apatite, aquamarine, and prehnite are her favorite stones.
Faith loves 20 orchids. Her favorite time of year is when several are blooming. Pictures can be seen at her FaceBook page. And yes, she collects bones and skulls. Many of her orchid pics are juxtaposed with bones and skulls —a fox, cat, dog, cow skull, goat skull, (that is, unfortunately, falling apart) and the jawbone of an ass. She just received a boar skull, and the skull of a mountain lion (legally purchased from a US tannery) killed in the wild.
She and her husband RV, traveling with their rescued Pomeranians to whitewater rivers all over the Southeast. (The poms don’t whitewater. The pampered dogs stay in the RV in air-conditioned comfort!)
And that leads Faith to kayaking – her very favorite sport. Faith discovered whitewater paddling when she was researching her (Gwen Hunter) mystery book, Rapid Descent. She took a lesson and—after a bout of panic attacks from fear of drowning—discovered she loved the sport.
