Sherrilyn Kenyon I don't think I am. I love to write :) I just wish I could write faster. I have more ideas than I can ever get out.

And I know from the horrors of my own past just what hides behind the facades we show to the world. Anyone who's ever had their feelings hurt or who have become crossed-up with family or friends knows that there are three sides to every story. Yours. Theirs. And the truth that lies between the two. We all see things very differently and it's filtered from our perspectives and experiences. The thing to remember with Styxx is the curse that was given to him on his birth, that was uttered by the priestess. Whatever befalls Acheron would also befall Styxx. The scenes you know from Acheron are very different when you view them from Styxx's vantage point, and you see the wider canvas of what both twins were having to cope with. And as Ash, himself, has said repeatedly in the series: It's amazing the damage we do to others when we're striving to protect ourselves from further hurt. The story of Styxx, is how to deal with a brutal past and how to learn to trust when the very people who were supposed to protect you, offer you up for their own selfish gain. It's something too many of us have to face in real life. And it's to show how that pain never goes away entirely, but how we can learn to cope and not let it ruin our present, or more importantly, our futures. Healing is a slow process, but it's worth it. We are all warriors who have fought or are fighting mighty personal battles. Growing up, too many of the books I read trivialized trauma and made it seem like you woke up one day and it was gone. Time heals all wounds . . . malarkey. I can tell you from personal experience, that's not true. Every day can be a struggle. Or even worse, too many books showed that there was no hope at all, that life ended as bitterly as it began. But again, I don't believe that. I believe, no matter how brutal our pasts, our present and our futures are what we determine them to be. Never let others or the past define or determine you. Be strong and be true. It's hard to don that armor, but we can overcome. We can be the people we want to be, but we have to make the choices and the sacrifices. The human spirit can be a dauntless entity and it should be a dauntless entity. In the immortal words of Galaxy Quest: Never give up. Never surrender. (less)

Happy Halloween

Yeah, it’s Halloween so all kinds of freaky things are going on in the Quarter (and other places). To say my nerves are shot, is an understatement. Halloween is code for “Let’s all hunt and kill Malachai.” And with the veil being thin, it’s much worse than normal. I’ve been more nervous than a three-tailed cat in a rocking chair factory.


So what does my ever-loving demon bodyguard decide to do? Al

Sherrilyn Kenyon answered Marie's question: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Those are different species of demons. Caleb is a Daeve demigod. Ravenna is half Kalios. And my Ravenmocker was male. So yes, they are both. It depends. But their shapeshifting form may or may not have anything to do with their demon class. Many demo See Full Answer

In short, yes. But the long answer is that I'm having to compile info for the screenwriter who is working on a pitch screenplay for the series. Once I have it all finished, we will be publishing it. So please stay tuned.

Tim Just read "Infinity," and anyone who knows Mojo Nixon's, "Jesus Is Everywhere," is a friend of mine. I have all his albums, and have seen him live several times. On top of that, you've told an excellent tale.


message 13: by Andri

Andri Thank you for accepting. I am a huge fun. I can't wait for Jaden's book ! :)

Janice Happy New Year.

Janice Have a beautiful 1st day of Summer, tomorrow.


message 10: by Janice

Janice Thank you for friending me. I've been skimming thru your books fairly often, since I've been working at a public library for over 30 years. Have a great day.


Sharon Hello! Thank you for accepting my friend request! I think you are a brilliant writer, and I absolutely love the characters you have created. They are complex, fantastically sarcastic, relatable, vulnerable, and just pure awesome. I love all of your DH books (and Nick's series), but I have a soft spot for Kyrian's (because he is THE original), Zarek's (because he is so insane and genuinely good and I love Le Petit Prince too), Ash's (because he is resilient, kind, and adorable), and Seth's (because he is funny and clueless) stories. Besides your male characters, your female characters kick ass just as well and they are unbelievably relatable. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Tory, and I was so scared who was going to end up with Ash before, but she went completely beyondddddd anyone I could have imagined.

You rule and I would literally be 111% cool with this series never ending because the stories are so imaginative, fun, and inspirational. THANK YOU!! :)
