Featured Interview With Ren Behan
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was born and raised in Colorado. I’ve lived in this gorgeous state my entire life, and hopefully, I can remain here a bit longer.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
When I was seven, I read “Island of the Blue Dolphins”, “Moby Dick”, and “Julia of the Wolves”. I fell in love with how the written word could transport us using our imagination as fuel. One of my fondest memories with reading is when my brother and I read “The Hobbit” together four times on our way to Texas for a family vacation.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
My favorite authors are Andrzej Sapkowski, Neil Gaiman, Harper Lee, and Edgar Allan Poe. I love dark fantasy and horror genres the most. My husband and my daughter inspire me – they inspire my drive. They give me purpose.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
The Mother sustains…but she can also take.
“I’ve been warned that the longer one remains in the sacred valley, the deeper the soul buries itself there. But to earn my place as hunter, I must complete the rite; I must nourish the forest ground with the spilt blood of my kill lest it be my own that sanctifies the soil. It is decided. But…am I hunter, or am I prey?”
What will begin as a hunt will change into the Hunter’s trial, bringing him face to face with a truth he isn’t ready to accept. As the happenings—events believed to be tests—force him to question reality, the Hunter finds there’s more to his rite than pleasing the Mother. While the valley consumes him, he’ll discover he may never have been meant to go back home.
“Veneration of the Hunter” is a dark fantasy novel focusing on a hunter’s struggle against expectation, himself, and nature.
