You know your life sucks when your sister’s a vampire, you’re a demon, and your girlfriend is literally an angel.
How could it possibly be any worse? Try having something ripping the souls out of your friends, ending up with a psychotic stalker, and having romantic urges for your best friend who also happens to be your demon mentor. Nobody ever said life was easy, but things went from bad to worse faster than you can say, “I sold my soul for a bag of Cheetos.”
Just to add insult to injury, the Fallen have decided to give me a new job. While being a Reaper might sound good on a resume, ripping the souls from monsters isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. As a matter of fact, I’m not sure what the Fallen have planned for me. All I do know is if they don’t get my wildly powerful magic under control and teach me how to stay alive when everybody wants to kick my butt…all hell could break loose. Literally.

How many books are planned for the Rise of the Fallen Series? 

Honestly… I don’t think I’ll ever stop writing those. Those and my Demonkin Series will be ongoing. I love the characters too much. They’ve become almost like family. They are vampires and demons though, so they fit right in. The rest of my works are either stand alone novels or novellas, or maybe a trilogy here or there. 

*I ❤ this series! Here’s to hoping we get more!*

Are your characters based on anyone in reality? 

Connor and Caelyn in the Rise of the Fallen Series. I named them after my own kids. I will say that they are LOOSELY based on my own kids, but more with how they interact with each other than anything else. They fight like cats and dogs…er…vampires and demons. Some of my other characters have a lot of ME in them. Which isn’t surprising since they reside in my head amongst the cobwebs and spiders. I really do need to get in there and do some dusting.

Then the rest of the characters are bits and pieces of friends and family. A LOT of Jen is in Jessie. Who else would I base an angel on? A lot of interactions between Jessie and Connor are little things that I say to Jen, or things that she says to me, too. Makes me smile when I’m writing.

*Awwww, super sweet! Jen is a lucky gal*

Jess and Conner’s relationship really took off, but so did his and Clarisse’s. Can you share your thoughts to which female interest Conner may be leaning toward? #TeamJess or #TeamClarisse? 

#teamreadbook3 #whenitcomesout 


In all seriousness though, what makes you think that Connor will ultimately choose? Who’s to say I won’t add a THIRD interest. You know. Because I suck like that. 

This is one of the best parts of being a writer. If people keep bugging me about it I may go all George R.R. Martin and plan a wedding.

*Dang it! I guess we’ll just have to wait for Book 3 😦 *

Angel vs demon, with a twist! I loved it. New characters were also introduced, will they play a big part in the next installment? (please list some of your fav new characters to tell about)

Raven will be back. I like her. She’s dark and mysterious and I have big plans with her. I won’t go into too much detail or give anything away, but things will start getting more serious in the next few novels. When you tip the balance of power between “GOOD” and “EVIL”, something is going to have to happen to either balance the scales or…


Can you give us an insight to what we can expect in book 3? Do you have a title?

I’m leaning toward YOUR SOUL TO SAVE, but that could change without provocation at anytime. I never plan my stories out in advance. I shoot from the hip. Write from the seat of my pants. Go with the flow. Let the stories write themselves. And a whole bunch of other colloquialisms. Sometimes… I even pick a title and write the story around it. We shall see. I have the first two Demonkins to re-release, and the third one to finish. After that I’ll be revisiting Connor and Caelyn.

*I LOVE Your Soul to Save! Fingers crossed for that choice*

Caelyn was very tricky at the end, and by the way, what a cliffhanger! Any clue to what happens in her future?

Of course I do.

*Not fair!*

I must have cried myself out. The tears stopped falling and I breathed in through my nose. I stood up and looked down at my baby sister lying there. I kissed my fingertips and touched her forehead.

“Goodbye, brat,” I whispered.

“Stop calling me brat.”

Caelyn’s eyes opened. Her irises were blood red. She gave me an impish smile and bared her fangs.

Little sisters suck.

I should have felt five million things, relief that my sister was still alive, sort of, being the foremost. The only thing I could really think about was how to tell my parents. Um…Mom, Dad, your daughter’s a vampire…Yeah, that probably wouldn’t go over too well. As awkward as it was, I reached down and hugged her for all that she was worth.

“Are you insane? Get off me!” She squirmed in my hug and got her hands on my chest. When she tried to gently push me away, she ended up throwing me halfway across the room. I skidded to a stop on the linoleum floor without crashing into anything. Caelyn sat up on the morgue table with a horrified look on her face. “What just happened?”

She looked around and knew. She knew where she was and why she was there. She stared down at her hands. Sure enough, she’d grown talons just like Brett had when he became a vampire. Caelyn knew exactly what she was, but the look she gave me begged for me to tell her something different, that she was wrong.

I couldn’t. I gave her a slow nod, confirming her fears and completely destroying the last bit of hope she might have had.

My sister and I hadn’t gotten along since she was two. Giving her horrible news had always been one of my favorite recreational sports. Hey, Cae, Mom found that test you were trying to hide. Hey, Sis, Dad found out you kissed Chuck. That sort of thing had given me more satisfaction than my PS3 ever had. Unexpectedly, that one simple nod, telling my sister her worst fears were true and that she was a vampire, made me feel a little sick to my stomach. “Cae, I…”

Her face crumpled into a mask of anguish. I heard the first tear hit the metal table beneath her before the first sob escaped her lips. I was back across the room before the second one fell. The first hug I had given my sister was awkward. She didn’t want me hugging her. This time she collapsed in my arms and accepted it. Maybe even needed it.

“What happened?”

Her question kind of threw me off guard. “We thought you were dead,” I said, thinking she meant how she ended up in the morgue.

“I swear, Mom and Dad dropped you when you were a child. I know why I’m here. I meant why am I alive? Why do I have talons? Am I a vampire like that asshole who broke into the house? Am I going to stay this way? What am I going to do now? More importantly, what the hell are you? I saw you! You had wings? Connor…”

“Wait! Slow down,” I said and pulled away. I leaned against the table and she tightened the sheet around her. “I don’t know how you became a vampire. I’ll be honest. It’s not supposed to happen that way, but I’m glad it did. I’d rather have a fangy sister than no sister.” I gave her a little smile and she rolled her eyes. Typical Caelyn.

“What do you mean it’s not supposed to happen that way?”

“Vampires. What happened wasn’t how it was supposed to happen. Somebody can wish to become a vampire, but they can’t make anybody else a vampire against their will. It doesn’t work like that.”

“What doesn’t work like that? What the hell are you talking about and more importantly, what the hell did they turn you into?”

Dad’s cough from outside the door stopped our conversation.

“Listen, Cae. I promise to tell you everything as soon as we get out of here and I figure out what to tell Mom and Dad.”

She nodded and wiped the tears rolling down her cheeks with the back of her hand. “Okay.”

I needed help. “Stay right here. Play dead,” I added with a small, sad smile that actually made her give a short bark of laughter.

“I think I can manage.”

I nodded and made my way to the morgue room doors. I glanced through the window and saw Dad standing in the hallway looking like… Well, looking like his daughter had just died. I pushed the door open and he looked up from the floor. “You ready to go, Connor?”

“Dad,” I said and looked him right in the eye. “You need to wait here for a moment. Do not go into the morgue.” I used my power just like Clarisse had taught me to. He would obey. He didn’t have a choice. His eyes glazed over and he stared straight ahead.

I ran through the halls of the hospital to the waiting room where I’d left Clarisse and my mom sitting and crying. Clarisse saw me–or felt me–as soon as I entered the room. I gave her a panicked smile and whispered, “I need you,” as quietly as possible. I knew she would be able to hear me. She gave a small, almost imperceptible nod and patted Mom’s leg.

“I’ll be right back, Mrs. Sullivan. I need to use the restroom.”

I slipped back out into the hall before my mom could see me and waited for her.

“What’s going on?” She sounded halfway between hopeful and worried.

“You’re not going to believe this. Follow me.”

“Believe what?”

“Don’t ask. Just follow me,” I said and led her back to the morgue.

Clarisse barely gave my father a glance as we entered. Caelyn was lying back on the cold metal table completely unmoving. She looked dead again.

“Connor. I already said goodbye…”

Cae’s eyes opened and she let out a little, “Boo!”

“Well, shit,” Clarisse said deadpan.

SENIOR YEAR BITES with J.A.Campbell Interview and More!

Senior Year Bites
Series: The Clanless, Book 1


J. A. Campbell

Genres: YA Urban Fantasy

Published: July 7, 2014

Untold Press


SYBSenior year is supposed to be fun: boys, dances and graduation. It’s significantly harder to enjoy it when you’re dead.

Thanks to an innocent game of Truth or Dare, I wound up sleeping in a graveyard. Probably not the brightest thing I’ve ever done, but thanks to a couple of well-placed fangs, I’m here to tell the tale.

Vampires might stalk pop culture, but they’re just myths, right? Yeah. Not so much…

Everything seems a lot more difficult when you’re a nocturnal creature of the night, especially school. I was managing, but couldn’t keep it hidden from my friends. Steph decided that we should be cool, like superheroes, and fight crime.

I’m a vampire, not a hero. Living in a sleepy New England town, crime is a little harder to come by. At least it is until a serial killer moves into the area. He’s got the authorities stumped, but then again, the cops don’t have a teenage, blood-sucking, non-hero on their team. It doesn’t take long for me to discover the world is full of monsters. I may be one of them…but will I turn out to be the hero, or the killer everyone is looking for.




Chapter 1

I had plans for my last year of high school. I was going to find a boyfriend, go to a few dances, and though I hadn’t told my mom yet, take some beginning paramedic courses in the spring. I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do with my life– wasn’t that what college was for? I liked the idea of being a hero, like my dad, and saving lives every day. That had been the plan anyway, but a sleepover and a late-night dare had changed everything.

A lot…



interview Q & A 🙂

Where did you get the idea for SYB?

Way back in the day I had a dream about a girl who got turned into a vampire her senior year of high school. While chatting with a good writing buddy on IM I shared my fun dream. We had also been discussing the concept that two writers can take the same idea and write it, but what they come up with will usually be completely different. Both of us thought my dream was cool, and wanted to test the concept, so we both wrote a thousand words or so based on my dream. They did turn out quite differently, and I ended up continuing to write until the novel was finished.

Do you plan to continue this series and if so, how many will be included?

Yes. The sequel, Summer Break Blues, is available from a different publisher in ebook format. The third, and final book, still exists only in my head but I have it on good authority that I’ll be writing it this winter.

Was there a particular reason or meaning behind SYB?

Hmm, not per-say. I did want to explore the idea of friendships, and I borrowed heavily on a friendship I had in high school.

 I noticed that Meg, the main character struggled with being a “hero.” Was there something personal to her need to save ppl? 

She wanted to be a hero like her father. He was a firefighter. She felt she’d lost any sort of ability to follow her dreams once she became a vampire. Turns out she just had to look at things differently.

 The end was left open-ended, and while I loved the story, can you tell us hopeful romantics if Meg and Tad end up dating? 

LOL, well, they do go on some dates. You’ll have to read the second book to see how that turns out.

 Meg kicks serious butt! I loved her determination and vow to keeping her friends and family safe. I enjoyed the way you wove other mythical creatures into the your story. If the series continues, is it possible to see more Fey or Vampires or Elves?

More Fey, who are Elves in this world essentially, Vampires, a Werewolf, the Selkie.

 Anything you’d like to add, or share with your readers about you or your characters? 

Well, let’s see, I really like to write about strong friendships and not giving up on each other easily. I feel like the people you surround yourself with is very important and I tried to write some good friends for Meg. Friends I would have liked to have. Steph is totally secure with her life, well, as much as someone her age can be. She’s driven and very idealistic. Meg, she’s loyal, but really confused. Understandably. Ann is a good kid but she’s not nearly as secure in herself and doesn’t like to feel completely overshadowed. Alexander is actually fairly terrified of Meg, which is why he’s such an ass to her for a while. 

If there’s anything else anyone wants to know, feel free to leave questions in the comments. I’ll swing by a few times to answer them.



“Hi, Johnny. How are you?”

“Fine. Mom tells me you’ve turned into a vampire.”
I choked. “What?”

“I can probably teach you some, but it will be different for you. Vampire society is more lethal. The Sidhe are not less dangerous, just less quick to kill. There are plenty of other things they can do to make your life miserable. Death is too easy. Vampires, well…they are killers. That’s what they do. Staying alive is a complicated dance through politics.”
