Author’s Inspiration Behind The Warrior Prophet

The Warrior Prophet is the third and final book in The Watcher saga, so it’s difficult to talk about what inspired one without a little background on the others since it grew from the seeds of the first book in the series, The Watcher.

Inspiration for the series came from an idea I had for a story almost a decade ago. I wanted to look at our innate abilities as human beings and then expand on that. The idea came to me about a boy who wakes up to discover he’s an angel. But telling it from his perspective seemed too much like a superhero tale, and though superhero stories are great, they weren’t the kind of story I wanted to tell. I tried, but couldn’t make him relatable enough as a main character. It wasn’t until the character of Mia came to me, a girl whom he’d loved in a past life and had to face now in order to recover from his own past, did their story come to life.
I’d studied meditation and metaphysics for years and know that negative thoughts and actions affect not only our mood, but it can seem to ensnare us into patterns in our lives. I wanted to look at that in an archetypal way. What if demons were responsible for those negative thoughts? What would the world look like if they were here? I liked the idea of the world looking pretty much the way it does now, but with bleed through from an otherworldly dimension that only few can see, like Mia who’s a prophet. That basically built the framework for the world in this series.

After I signed with Inkspell Publishing for The Watcher, my editor suggested I write a sequel. At first, I didn’t know what to write, but the idea for The Warrior Prophet (Book 3) actually came to me before The Angel Killer did. So you could say this book is where I was headed.

The Warrior Prophet takes Mia and the reader on a journey through hell. Inspiration came from many places, but the journey through hell had its own inspiration. I was a big fan of Milton’s Paradise Lost. I loved the epic good versus evil theme, the descriptions of hell. I also like the idea that there were many layers of hell, as Dante had in the Inferno. Thirdly, ever since I’d watched the movie What Dreams May Come I wondered about the idea of hell being subjective. After all, life is subjective. What if the afterlife were too?
If hell were subjective, then Mia might see a very different version of it and might get lost. This isn’t Wonderland. She’d make no friends in hell who could help her along the way. In order to survive the trip, she’d need a guide. And from there, I knew that the guide needed to be unreliable, the way that Gollum was to Frodo in the Lord of the Rings

From there, the pieces came together and the story came to life. As dark and scary as some of the places were, it was the most fun I’ve had writing a novel.

The Watcher: Book One of The Watcher Saga



      Millennia ago, he fell from heaven for her.

Can he face her without falling again?

Fascinated with ancient civilizations, seventeen-year-old Mia Crawford dreams of becoming an archaeologist. She also dreams of wings—soft and silent like snow—and somebody trying to steal them.

When a horrible creature appears out of thin air and attacks her, she knows Michael Fontaine is involved, though he claims to know nothing about it. Secretive and aloof, Michael evokes feelings in Mia that she doesn’t understand. Images of another time and place haunt her. She recognizes them—but not from any textbook.

In search of the truth, Mia discovers a past life of forbidden love, jealousy and revenge that tore an angel from Heaven and sent her to an early grave. Now that her soul has returned, does she have a chance at loving that angel again? Or will an age-old nemesis destroy them both?

Ancient history is only the beginning.
