Interview with C M Debell, Author of The Many Shades

master mentalism tricks

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write The Many Shades of Midnight?

The story explores a crisis similar to climate change, although it’s very much a fantasy version, more of a zombie apocalypse than global warming. But the real story of the book is the greed and corruption that led to the crisis and that is inspired by what’s going on in our world every day. It’s an exploration of the mentality that prioritizes profits and self-interest over everything else, only in this world time really has run out and the problem is no longer one for future generations to deal with. And what then? That’s the question the characters have to answer.

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

Fantasy first and always, but I read lots of genres – sci-fi, historical fiction, romance, mystery/crime, and non-fiction. Give me well-drawn, interesting characters and I’ll read almost anything.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

So many! I’m currently re-reading Dorothy Dunnett’s Lymond Chronicles, then after that I’m planning on reading Legacy of the Brightwash by Krystle Matar, Sordaneon by LL Stephens, The Blacktongue Thief by Christopher Buehlman, The Price of Power by Michael Michel… There are lots more! My kindle is full of great books waiting for me to get to them.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

Definitely the ending, though that’s a collection of scenes rather than just one. It was a really satisfying, cathartic thing to write.

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

Early mornings, cup of coffee, music on headphones and, most importantly, no one else around.

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

Life is what you make of it, so make the most of it.

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

The day the blue star-violet flowered.
