Meet Aoife Marie Sheridan | Interview & Spreading the Word

Today I'm showing off Aoife Marie Sheridanand some of her novels that I recently interviewed her about!

My Q&A with Aoife Marie Sheridan :

Jess : Please describe your Saskia Trilogy in one to five sentences.

Aoife : It’s a story of a young woman finding herself in the most extreme situations. Learning to love, accept loss, and fight for what she believes in. It’s a journey of self-discovery and understanding no matter how powerful we may think we are, things can change in the blink of an eye.

Jess : Which usually comes first for you, the character(s) story or the idea for the novel?

Aoife : The story comes first for me not the characters. It’s a time, place and situation that will plaque me until I write it down. At present I have twenty one books I still wish to write and yet the stories I want to tell still come. I hope one day I get to tell them all.

Jess : Please describe "Hunters" [Demon Series, Book 1] in 75 words or less.

Aoife : A story about a damaged soul, living in a world where angels and demons are real. After losing her whole family Abigail spirals into a state of depression that doesn’t allow her to see any beauty in her life or the world. Her path of self-destruction affects the ones closest to her, especially Daniel (Zee) who loves her deeply. He is her salvation and her downfall.

Jess : Is there any differences and/or similarities between Sarajane from your Saskia Trilogy and Bellona from your Saskia Trilogy?

Aoife : Sarajane and Bellona are similar in ways. If Bellona had been given a chance in live she would have been a good person, she still would have been a spoilt princess but nothing like the way she turned out. She has a softness like Sarajane but her childhood has turned her into a bitter and cruel person. Sarajane was given a good start and now as she faces her difficulties she does so with a strong will. Her foundations are strong, Bellona’s weren’t.

Jess : What sparked the idea for "Hunters?"

Aoife : It came to be when I went to see a healer that my friend recommended to me. After our healing session he spoke of angels so vividly that I was left a little in awe. And where there is good, there is also evil. So the healer speaking of angels made me think of demons and so hunters the story was born.

Jess : What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write in a novel and why?

Aoife : The whipping Scene with the queen Bellona was a very hard scene to write. I loved it because it challenged me in ways. I needed so much emotion as I wrote it and had to bring it all to the top before I started writing. I wanted the reader to really feel not just the servant’s pain but Bellona’s also. I hope I did.

Jess : In regards to The Saskia Trilogy, if you could write it all over again, would you change anything about it?

Aoife : Not one thing. Yes I look at it now four years later and feel I could maybe do better, but that story was right at the time I wrote it, so I refuse to change it.

Jess : Out of all of the secondary characters within "Hunters," do you have one or two favorites so far? If so, who are they and can you tell us why?

Aoife : Cathy is one of my favorites, her sarcasm covers up her pain in life, yet she can be pretty funny in a cruel sort of way. But the cracks are so visible and she tries so hard to cover them up. She’s a complex character and one I think everyone can identify with at some stage in their lives. I know I can.

Jess : How many books have you written? Which is your favorite and why?

Aoife : I have six written books. Oh that’s not fair, I can’t pick a favorite, but since your twisting my arm I would say "Drowning in Lies," my newest book. I just love the world and characters.

Jess : Do you have any other projects in the works? If so, can you share a little of your current work with us?

Aoife : "Drowning in Lies" [Seven of Kings Series, Book 1] is my next release.

Here is the Blurb:
    Chaos reigns throughout the seven kingdoms of Nirra. Fighting for their lives as their Kings wage war against one and other, the people are used as pawns.

    While the search begins for a woman who will birth the strongest heir to the throne, a healer runs from a fate she doesn’t want to embrace, a witch finds out about her powers, and a traumatised amnesiac struggles to remember who she is.

    In a world at war and with no control over their own destinies, they are all drowning in lies. Only the strongest will survive.

Page on Amazon:

Jess : Do you have a favorite aspect of spring/summer that you’d like to share with us?

Aoife : Not really my favorite season is winter. Love the cold. My favorite thing to do is curl up with a book, or nestle down and do some writing.

Jess : What cartoon character best represents your personal philosophy?

Aoife : Oh Lord that’s tough. I really don’t know.

Jess : If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?

Aoife : Your questions are so hard. Hmmm .... "The Irish Author." (that’s the best I can do)
