A Ghost Story From Nebraska

Kimberly A. Banks
Kimberly A. Banks Author Interview

A Curse of Silver and Blood follows a man struggling to hide his psychic abilities while trying to uncover the truth behind his brother’s death. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

My lifelong struggle with overcoming anxiety and my own personal demons. And believe it or not … a stock photo, a song, and a ghost story from Nebraska.

Elijah is an intriguing and well developed character. What were some driving ideals behind your character’s development?

I wanted Elijah to be relatable, flawed, and decent. My goal was to create a character who started off in a bad situation but did his best to become a better person despite the odds.

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

From the beginning, the themes I knew I’d be exploring were forgiveness, past lives, and that not everyone is perfect. I think as human beings we’re harder on ourselves than anyone else is. It’s important to remember to forgive ourselves and to forgive others. No matter how long the road might be. Even if it follows us through numerous lives. LOL

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

I’d have to say this is the hardest question of them all! But, I’m doing a follow-up to “A Curse of Silver and Blood.” I think Elijah’s character still has more to offer, and I’m looking forward to digging deeper into him and his friends. When will it be available? Oh, holy crud. I’m shooting for Summer, Winter, Fall, or maybe just finishing it sometime in my lifetime? Totally kidding I’m shooting for February 2023, but hopefully sooner.

There’s something strange about Elijah Ward.

In the Southern Coastal town of Savannah, he struggles to conceal his psychic gifts of astral projection and retrocognition.

“If you’re reading this, then I’m no longer alive, and you need to leave town before you’re murdered.” These were the haunting last written words Elijah’s estranged brother, Owen, left him before committing suicide. Ignoring the warning, Elijah finds himself hunted by shape-shifting wolves ravenous for his flesh.

Recently excommunicated from her coven, Quinn Rowan has been honing her magical abilities since birth. Tormented by dreams of a mysterious man she loved in a past existence, Quinn is drawn to an abandoned historic property. The exact property where she watched the man she loved murdered two hundred years earlier.

Elijah is confident Quinn is his soulmate. But she was the last person to see Owen alive, and he suspects she wants to kill him. Unfortunately, she’s the only person who holds the key to his survival. Bewitched by Quinn, Elijah is determined to uncover the spiritual connection between them and the truth behind his brother’s death.
