Interview with Mark Graves, Author of Children of the Eighth


master mentalism tricks

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Children of the Eighth Day?

I was thinking about the idea of vampires and what the world would be like if they actually did exist. That led me to think about how vampires wold be created in this world.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Children of the Eighth Day, what would they be?

My main, mortal, character is a teenager growing up in the 1970’s. He’s a fan of Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones, and AC/DC.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

My favorite genre is mystery/thriller and these sensibilities have been infused into my writing. While my vampires might be immortal, the tension comes not from magic or supernatural events, but from the struggle between good and evil.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

I am currently reading The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. I recently finished the Cruel Prince series by Holly Black, and The Chain by Adrian McKinty.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

The sequence where my hero, Alexander McGill, first encounters The Graf and learns the depravity of other vampires.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

Other than needing to have music playing and not being able to write with anyone else in the room, I don’t think I have too many writing quirks.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

We make time for the things we love.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

We all have a choice for how we live. Even in dark circumstances, we can choose to be good.
