Once Upon a Darkness
Aria Kane, welcome
to Romance Lives Forever. We’re excited to interview your character, Clint from
the book, Once Upon a Darkness.
Genre: Paranormal
Entranced Publishing
Cover artist:

Length: novella
Heat rating: mild
Gretchen and her
twin brother, Hank, were abandoned to a zombie horde when they were five years
old. Intended to be a sacrifice by their zealot parents, they were instead
rescued by The Company. Raised to become soldiers in the war against zombies,
they now provide safe passage through danger zones, one contract at a time.
Clint’s only skill
is war, but he’s weary of killing other men. When his contract with the Marines
runs out, he takes a job on Gretchen’s team, hoping that the search-and-rescue
life will suit him better.
On Clint’s second
day, their four-man team is attacked, drugged, and taken to a prison full of
frightened civilians. The only way in or out is by helicopter and, here, their
enemies are human. One by one, the captives are culled from the holding area.
Rumors say the facility director uses the prisoners as experimental subjects
for the testing of a zombie cure.
When Hank is taken,
Clint and Gretchen must put aside their personal feelings and find a way out of
the prison, surrounded by thousands of starving zombies, before Hank becomes
just one more disposable guinea pig in the hands of a twisted mad woman.

Interview with Clint

Tell us about
Not too much to
tell, really. I grew up with a good extended family and joined the Marines when
I was eighteen.
Tell us about
She’s the most
incredible woman I’ve ever met. You know the first time we met, she tackled me
and promised to shoot me? Yeah, I guess that doesn’t sound great, but she meant
it in the best possible way.
I just wish she’d
open up to me.
What do you
think is your strongest point?
I don’t lose my
What would
Gretchen say is your biggest weakness?
I’m not sure about
biggest weakness, but she sure gets pissed when she tries to pick a fight with
me and I don’t react. I think she just likes to fight.
What was it like
where you grew up?
I don’t know if I
remember what it was like before the virus. Sometimes I think I have a memory
of my dad, but I couldn’t, right? I was too young.
Both sets of
grandparents and my aunts and uncles lived in Orlando, which was one of the first Safe
cities, so we moved in with them about a year after the outbreak. It was
crowded and loud.
What do you wish
was different about your life?
I wish my sister
was still here. And, if I can be greedy, my dad too.
If you were
given your fondest wish, what would it be?
My mom tells me
they used to say, “If you could go back in time and kill Hitler, would
you?” I don’t know much about him, but I’d definitely take out the bastard
who created the virus.
Describe a place
of perfect refuge.
The minute right after I wake up next to Gretchen, before the world
catches up with us.
