Author Interview: Avenger by Heather Burch

Interview with Heather Burch

Q:  For those who haven't read Halflings, describe a Halfling. And why are they not supposed to fall in love with humans (I think I always steer towards the forbidden romances)?
A:  A Halfling is a being who is half human and half angel. The human blood line isn’t to be tainted, so that’s why they’re not to fall in love with a human.

Q:  Nikki mentions reading steam punk to Mace. What kind of novels can we find her reading?
A:  None now that she will be busy saving the world!

Q:  In Guardian, Nikki meets some Halflings with Australian accents which makes them totally swoon-worthy. Which accents do you consider swoon-worthy?
A:  Almost all of them! Haha. Australian, of course. English is pretty cool. I actually pick up accents when I spend time listening to one for a while. Suddenly, I’m talking with an accent and don’t even realize it. Yeah, I crack myself up.

Q:  We find out fairly quickly that Vine, one of the Halflings, has a sweet tooth. I've caught him eating gummy worms as well as sweet tarts in Guardian. Do you have a sweet tooth? What's your favorite kind of candy?
A:  I actually am more of a chocolate lover. Candy is ok, but dark chocolate … heaven!

Q:  Zero, the Halfling computer-techy is afraid of water. Do you have any fears?
A:  I used to be terrified of frogs. I know. But I took some kids on a youth camp trip and told them that if they could find a whole page of scripture about facing your fears, I’d hold a frog in my hand. They did, and of course, I did. And I still think frogs are creepy, but I’m not scared of them anymore. Yes, we have a video of the entire thing.

Q:  When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A:  I wanted to write rock music videos.

Q:  Raven and Nikki are both drawn to motorcycles, especially Harleys and Ducatis. What would be your dream car?
A:  The Ducati in Halflings is an actual concept bike owned by the doctor my husband works with. So, when I had Vessler purchasing it, I had to throw in he bought it from a doctor in Florida. It would be pretty neat to own since it is so rare. As far as a dream car, I like Jaguars for comfort, but I’d want a convertible Camaro for fun.

Q:  Are you a dog or cat person?
A:  Since there is a twenty pound ball of feline fur warming my lap as I write this, I’m going to say cat person.

Q:  What is one book that everyone should read?
A:  The Bible. So you know, you know? Nowadays there are a lot of easy to read bibles out there. Like, The Message. It’s written in words and phrases that we use and understand. But I think the Bible is an important book. Everyone should read and form their own opinions.

Q:  Favorite Quote?
A:  “The opportunity of a lifetime must be seized during the lifetime of the opportunity”
     – Steve Hill

Description (taken from Goodreads):
Sometimes the Truth Comes with a Price
Nikki knew Damon Vessler would not let his prized creation go easily---she simply never imagined the lengths he'd go to get her back into his clutches, and turn Nikki's heart toward darkness.
A Seeker at her heels, trained on her blood, Nikki flees with Raven alongside her for protection, while Mace and the other Halflings fight the battle that has erupted on earth. But even as the two boys she loves fight for her, she knows the battle will be hers to win. Determined to uncover the secrets of her past, and exactly how she fits into Vessler's twisted plans, Nikki sets off on her own, and soon discovers facing hellacious beasts is nothing compared to the decision she will need to make. One that could change not only the war, and her relationship with Mace and Raven, but her future with the Throne.
