‘Hunters’ is the first book in Aoife Sheridan’s new Demon series which follows troubled teen Abigail as she hunts down demons alongside a few other interesting characters …
Her life so far has been tough. Having witnessed her family’s death and her mother’s suicide, she’s been taken in by a priest, who believes her when she says that she sees ghosts. Father Peter trains her as a demon hunter with three other members, one being Daniel, who isn’t what he seems.
But when a possession goes wrong, and ghosts start to attack Abigail, the tight rope she has on her emotions soon starts to loosen. Abigail draws the unwanted attention of the Reote, and she finds out a lot more than she was willing to learn. Knowledge is power, but for Abigail, it’s her undoing, and the only thing keeping her together is Daniel.
Aoife had a passion for writing poetry or in her eyes her journal entries. It was something she did throughout her teens and into her twenties. Aoife won first place for two of her poems and had them published at just nineteen. Realising she needed to get a real job (What! writing isn’t a real job?) she studied accountancy and qualified, working in this field for many years. Her passion for reading eventually returned and she found Maria V Snyder book series – The Chronicles of Ixia. ‘Poison Study’ is still one of Aoife’s favourite books and the story has been read and re-read countless times.
INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR AOIFE MARIE SHERIDAN
Question 1: What have you published recently?
I published Hunters, Demon Series Part one. It will be released on the 1st of October.
Question 2: What is a typical day like for you as a writer?
Well I work so I don’t have a lot of time to write. My writing goes something like this. If I have a spare moment – grab a pen, the house is empty – type. Quiet at work – get a notepad, ect. Just any moment I can find to write, I will. But I never suffer with writer’s block, when I finally get to write I know exactly what I want to say.
Question 3: What types of writing do you do?
Mostly Paranormal/Fantasy but I would love to do a contemporary romance, maybe one day.
Question 4: What are your favourite characters that you have created? Tell us about them.
I just love Cathy. She is part of Abigail’s group. Her story and background are very sad but it gives her flair. Cathy can be nasty or overly self-confident but she does all this to hide her insecurities and her full story comes to light in Book Two (Hunted). Secondly it’s Abigail. She was a very complex character to write. She’s an alcoholic so I had to do a bit of research on this. Also her trauma of seeing her family die has damaged her. She’s constantly fuelled with anger, guilt and self-doubt. We don’t see Abigail in a happy light until we reach Book two (Hunted) and then we see a more mellow side to her. Over all it was a challenge to write her character, but I enjoyed it.
Question 5: What music do you listen to, while writing?
I have a playlist for Hunters. I listened to all these songs on repeat.
1. Another Love By Tom Odell
2. Seven Nation Army By White Stripes
3. Swedish House Mafia (Club scene)
4. Watchtower Delvin Feat – Ed Sheeran
5. Clown by Emeli Sande
6. Runaway By Linkin Park
7. In the End By Linkin Park
8. Talk By Kodaline
Question 6: What do you eat while writing?
I am not as bad as I used to be, so I don’t really eat, (THAT IS WHILE WRITING), normally my downfall is caffeine.
Five for Fun:
What is your favourite non-alcoholic drink? Coffee.
What is your favourite cartoon character? I love the little girl from Despicable Me.
What is your favourite movie of all time? War of the Worlds.
What TV shows do you like to watch? Game of Thrones.
What do you like to do for fun or just to relax? Read, Watch movies or go out for meals.

I love your playlist, Aoife!! 🙂
Thanks harmony. I get a terrible habit of only listening to about ten songs for the whole duration of writing a book. 🙂 it just keeps me in that zone.
