T. Frohock has turned a love of history and dark fantasy into tales of deliciously creepy fiction. A real-life cyborg, T has a cochlear implant, meaning she can turn you on or off with the flick of a switch. Make of that what you will. She currently lives in North Carolina, where she has long been accused of telling stories, which is a southern colloquialism for lying.

Hi, Eleanor!

First of all, THANK YOU! Both for reading Miserere and for your kind words.

The short answer to your question is: Yes, I do intend to eventually write the sequel to Miserere.

The long answer is: The publisher only purchased the first book in the series. Due to a long chain of unfortunate events, Miserere did not sell well when it was initially published. Nowadays, the first few weeks are a make or break proposal for a novel and/or series, so selling the second book was more difficult. I moved on to other projects.

So when will I write Dolorosa? Right now, I am under contract to Harper Voyager Impulse for my Los Nefilim series, which is doing well. Because I work a full-time job in addition to writing, it's more difficult for me to work on multiple series simultaneously.

However, Rachael, Lucian, and Catarina are all still very much alive in my imagination, and I hope to get a chance to continue their story someday.(less)

I wrote for a few years when I was in my early twenties (nothing published), then stopped writing for a long time. I've been writing steadily now for about six years. ;-) I have one published novel and I'm in the final draft of a new novel now.


Christine Hatfield how long have you been writing books?
