Featured Interview With Reign Atkins
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I am an Australian born and raised author with hopes and dreams of one day traveling to the US, where ironically most of my characters are from. One day, I might write a story based in Australia.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I realized my fascination with writing when I was about seven years of age. I wrote a story about meeting an alien, traveling to space and having a party.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I used to read a lot of Anne Rice and while I still love her work, I have been reading more stories written by fellow writers in the writing community and on authortube. My stories are ultimately inspired my love of superheroes, mythology, and events that we ourselves must face every day… Which means, every day people.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
Hope was inspired by my the fanfictions I used to write. But ultimately it was about me creating a world of chaos that needed to be saved by people who would usually be considered the underdogs. My male MC (Cruz) is a nerdy archaeologist who would generally be considered the sidekick. He opens Pandora’s Box and needs to determine just how to fix his mistake. What’s funny is the girl he falls in love with, just like him, is also immune and she demonstrates that women can take charge and kick some serious butt! The curse of the seven deadly sins allowed me to create a world where being safe and protected by the authorities is not an option. Thing is, because it is set in our modern world, people believe it is a virus, all except the one guy who unleashed it.
All in all, Hope teaches us that action, sacrifice and hope can ultimately save the day.
