Meet the Author

Kim Harrison

#1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison was born and raised in Michigan, and has recently returned there to escape the South Carolina heat. Her bestselling Hollows novels include Dead Witch Walking; The Good, the Bad, and the Undead; Every Which Way But Dead; A Fistful of Charms; For a Few Demons More; The Outlaw Demon Wails; White Witch, Black Curse; Black Magic Sanction; Pale Demon; A Perfect Blood; and Ever After, plus the graphic novels Blood Work and Blood Crime. She also writes the bestselling Madison Avery series for young adults, including Once Dead, Twice Shy and Early to Death, Early to Rise.

Biography

Bestselling paranormal fantasy author Kim Harrison went all the way through school with nary a thought of becoming a writer. A biology major in college, she took only the required English courses needed to graduate. So when the writing bug hit her later in life, she found herself at a real disadvantage with grammar, spelling, and other basic weapons in the scribbler's arsenal. However, her love of books was her saving grace. Always a voracious reader, Harrison instinctively recognized the role of plot, pacing, and character development in good storytelling. She set about writing with great enthusiasm and plugged away for the better part of decade, until she was able to bring her skills up to par.

Harrison's debut novel grew out of frustration with a growing pile of rejection notices. In an attempt to get publishers' attention, she set out to craft something deliberately weird and edgy. She conceived a motley cast of vampires, werewolves, pixies, and witches, including a sexy bounty hunter named Rachel Morgan, and threw them together in a short story. Then, her agent introduced her to editor Diana Gill, and together they refined and expanded Harrison's idea into a full length novel.

Published in 2004, Dead Witch Walking became a bestseller, launched a blockbuster series, and catapulted Harrison into a pantheon of paranormal superstars that includes Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, Christine Feehan, and Sherrilyn Kenyon. As if to validate her inclusion in these ranks, Harrison's stories have also been included in several bestselling paranormal collections.

Good To Know

  • Harrison claims that her muse exists in music. In our exclusive interview, she explained, "Music moves society more than most people realize. In my opinion, it's a soft manipulator of influence and change. I love the power of the musician who composes and performs. I envy their ability to put a nugget of truth in three minutes of sweat and emotional outpouring, colored entirely from their thoughts. And I'll admit that if I can, I'll steal that nugget of truth, study it, facet it, polish it, and place it in my writing."

  • On her MySpace page, Kim lists the following as her heroes: "My parents. Anyone who pursues their dreams when no one believes they can reach them. Single moms and dads."

  • Rachel Morgan and her otherworldly cohorts exist in and around an alternate version of Cincinnati, Ohio -- a "little big city" Harrison was familiar with from her Midwestern youth. She always tries to incorporate "Cincy" sights into her series novels, so readers are likely to find allusions to Eden Park, the Cincinnati Zoo, and other local neighborhoods and landmarks.

  • As a tribute to one of her favorite actor/directors, Harrison has given some of her Rachel Morgan novels titles that play on well-known Clint Eastwood films: For a Few Demons More, Every Which Way but Dead, The Outlaw Demon Wails, etc.

    Chapter One

    Ala sombra de una tienda desierta, frente a la taberna Sangre y Pociones, me acomode los pantalones de cuero tratando de pasar inadvertida. Esto es patetico, pense, mientras le echaba una mirada a la calle mojada y vacia. Soy demasiado buena como para esto.

    Normalmente mi trabajo consistia en apresar brujas sin licencia y brujas negras: se necesita una bruja para atrapar a otra. Pero esta semana las calles estaban mas calladas que de costumbre. Los que podian estaban en la costa oeste, en la reunion anual, pero yo estaba aqui con este caso de pacotilla. Una carga! La suerte de estar aqui en la oscuridad bajo la lluvia se la debo al Giro.

    "A quien estoy enganando?" murmure, acomodandome la correa del bolso sobre el hombro. Hace un mes que no me mandaban a atrapar brujas sin patente, brujas blancas, brujas negras, nada. Tal vez no fue buena idea atrapar al hijo del alcalde por andar de hombre lobo en una noche sin luna llena.

    Un auto elegante doblo la esquina. Era negro, iluminado por la luz de mercurio de la calle. Esta era la tercera vez que pasaba por la cuadra. Frunci el ceno cuando se aproximo lentamente. "Maldicion!," dije. "Necesito un sitio mas oscuro."

    "El piensa que eres una prostituta, Raquel," me dijo mi asistente al oido. "Te dije que ese corpino rojo era demasiado llamativo."

    "Alguna vez te han dicho que hueles a murcielago borracho, Jenks?," gruni entre dientes, mis labios apenas moviendose. Mi asistente estaba incomodamente cercano esta noche aferrandose a mi arete -- una cosa grande, colgante -- el arete, no el duende. Jenks era pretencioso, con mala actitud e igual temperamento. Claro, eso si, sabia en que jardin estaba el nectar. Lo mejor que me daban de asistentes eran duendes, desde aquel incidente que tuve con un sapo. Habria jurado que las hadas eran demasiado grandes para caber en la boca de un animal de esos.

    Me acerqui a la esquina mientras el auto se detenia chapoteando en el asfalto mojado. Escuche el tipico sonido de la ventanilla automatica cuando se bajo el vidrio oscuro. Me incline acompanada de mi mejor sonrisa al tiempo que mostraba mi identificacion de trabajo. Ahi desaparecio la mirada lasciva del miron y su cara se puso palida. El auto arranco de una vez con un chirrido de llantas. "Debe ser un dominguero," pense con desden, pero No, corregi de inmediato. Parecia normal. Era humano. A pesar de ser correctos, terminos como dominguero, empleado, blandengue, desquiciado y -- mi favorito, marrano -- no eran bien vistos; pero si el tipo andaba buscando prostitutas en los andenes de Los Hollows, podriamos llamarlo muerto.

    El auto ni siquiera paro en el semaforo rojo. Yo me di vuelta al oir los maullidos de las prostitutas que desplace al atardecer. Con su pose descarada del otro lado de la esquina, no parecian muy contentas conmigo. Hice un gesto para saludarlas, pero la mas alta me maldijo antes de mostrarme su pequeno trasero. La prostituta y su "amigo" fornido hablaban fuerte, ocultando el cigarrillo que compartian. Eso si, no olia a tabaco corriente. Ese no es mi problema esta noche, pense, y me meti de nuevo entre las sombras.

    Me recoste contra la piedra fria del edificio con los ojos puestos en las luces rojas del auto que frenaba y alce las cejas al verme a mi misma. Soy una mujer alta, aproximadamente de un metro setenta, pero no tengo tanta pierna como la ramera que estaba en el pozo de luz cercano. Tampoco estaba tan maquillada como ella. Mis caderas angostas y mi busto casi plano no contribuyen mucho para hacerme material de calle. Antes de buscar en las tiendas para duendes, estuve mirando en la seccion "tu primer sosten." Es imposible encontrar algo sin corazones y unicornios estampados.

    Mis ancestros emigraron a este pais querido, Estados Unidos, en el siglo diecinueve. No se como, pero de generacion en generacion las mujeres se las arreglaron para conservar los tipicos cabellos rojos y los ojos verdes de nuestra tierra irlandesa. Eso si, mis pecas estan ocultas gracias a un hechizo que papa me regalo el dia que cumpli trece anos. Metio el diminuto amuleto en un anillo de menique. Nunca salgo de casa sin el.

    Suspire y me reacomode el bolso sobre el hombro. Los pantalones de cuero, las botas rojas y el corpino de tiras delgadas no eran tan diferentes de la indumentaria que usaba los viernes para martirizar a mi jefe; pero salir asi a la calle por la noche . . . "mierda," le dije a Jenks, "parezco una ramera."

    Un grunido fue su unica respuesta. Me esforce por no reaccionar mientras regresaba a la taberna. Llovia demasiado y aun faltaba tiempo para que hubiera mas gente, pues aparte de mi asistente y aquellas "damas," la calle estaba desierta. Habia estado ahi parada casi una hora y no veia senales de mi objetivo. Lo mejor seria entrar y esperar. Ademas, adentro no daria la sensacion de ser una callejera.

    Respire hondo y me decidi a entrar. Me solte el mono de cabellos rizados hasta los hombros. Unos instantes para ordenarlos artisticamente sobre la cara, tirar la goma de mascar y listo. El taconeo de mis botas produjo un elegante contrapunto con las esposas que colgaban de mi cintura mientras cruzaba la calle mojada en direccion de la taberna. Las argollas de acero parecian un accesorio de utileria barata, pero eran reales y destinadas a buen uso. Sonrei. Con razon se detuvo el miron. Si. Son para trabajar; pero no exactamente para lo que estas pensando.

    Me mandaron a Los Hollows en medio de la lluvia para atrapar a un hada por evadir impuestos. Cuanto mas bajo puedo llegar?, pense. Tal vez fue por atrapar a ese perro la semana pasada. Como podia saber que era un hombre lobo? Correspondia a la descripcion que me habian dado.

    Una vez que entre al pequeno vestibulo y me sacudi el agua, le eche un vistazo . . .
