The novel, “Unholy Pursuit: The Devil on Trail”

 I acquired the setting of the novel from years of travel and years of moving from end of the country to the other. Many of the locations I’ve actually lived there and knows them very well. Some, I was only there for a short while but got to know them.

I used the sitting of many places to create the scene of her early life which involved spiritualism, demons, immortals, witches, warlocks and other diabolical supernatural beings.

It’s a fast action novel with many plots but all leads back to the same issue.  Ana BuFaye is a major threat to a very Old Order.

The main character is gifted but doesn’t learn of it until she is an adult. The story begins with her moving from place to place trying to escape the snares of those pursuing her to take her life. She is on the run with a young child and a sick mother and no help or assistance. Taking many odd and end jobs to survive.

She lives in the end-times. The many events and plots mentioned in her life that are biblical inspired like meeting of numerous saints and the plagues and breaking of the seal of Revelation.

I’ve written thirteen books to this series over the years because one book couldn’t tell the entire story.

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    • The wait is over. 🙂 Thank you for your patience. It is available on ebook in a few days on Amazon. I didn’t realize the herculean task of publishing a book this size until the publishing company took me through the editing progress.


  5. Thanks your visit. It’s much appreciated! 🙂

    I’m so glad to see your book doing so well. I’m also glad you didn’t listen to the naysayers and let them defer you with their grumbling. You kept the course. That’s the hallmark of a true author. That’s how any author will make their book do well. You can’t spend all your time chattering with your online friends and posting pictures of your pets and expect your book to do well even if you are traditional published.

    The main element I see pushing and propelling it is that it is different. It’s isn’t about the supernatural elements so popular today. It’s new and different. The author pointed out there’s many more supernatural elements out there beside werewolves and vampires and a heck of a lot scarier. I for one was tired of the same scenario over and over in the paranormal genre. It’s very refreshing someone took the time to learn what else is out there. This was not a book which was quickly written.

    Although, it’s a fictional it has a healthy dose of realism in the work. I like the fact you wrote it as the world really is. You didn’t pacifier anything. I read some parts might offend a few who have never experienced life and think things are really as idea as they seems. But for us seasoned folks. We know exactly what you are talking about. That took courage. I’m glad you didn’t go overboard with the dystopian elements and turn it into the Walking Dead, Mad Max or the Apocalypse. I don’t think this fit into one particular genre. I have never read anything quite like it.

    I found it new how the book explained things in a way so many authors forget to explain regarding the traits of their characters and the character’s life. Which leaves the reader wondering how they accomplished such great feat with no resources? Even in fantasy you have to sound somewhat believable.

    They never explained how the hero or heroine got back into the city of their birth to avenge the death of their loved ones. When the last you read about them they were a poor pauper in the streets or in a cave with the royal family loyal servant whom the king was seeking? How did they go from the impoverished youth in a cave to He-man in a matter of paragraphs?

    And I’m glad you didn’t write elves let them or fairies twinkled them into a guarded fortress. And thank you for not saying a dragon flew them in or they mysteriously learn karate and whipped everyone’s butt at the gate and burst in on the king who killed their father and killed him.

    Another thing I noticed you rarely see in literature today. A truly noble heroine, so many heroine’s are depicted as some sort of impossible tough woman, man hater. This author portrayed that a woman can be tough when she needs to be tough and yet still be a lady.

    Finally somebody wrote a story for grown ups. It’s about time. I must say it isn’t a story for anyone easily offended. But it worth the read. Congratulations. I look forward to the second installment.

      I like these things about this character also. The main character, She’s isn’t a fumbling idiot, but isn’t an ice queen either. She’s a grown woman who is sure of herself. I was tired of grown-up women being written as teenage girls.
      I’m a little tired of insecure trope. The stupidly in love trope. Or unexplainable super ability trope.

    I know my post may not go through but that’s ok. I understand but the stuff in this book is what they need to be teaching in church about the darkside instead of all the mindless drivel and psychotherapy crap. They would have one to believe that once you accept Jesus everything is going to okey-dokey. No, it isn’t. That’s when the devil and all of hell really come after you. People he isn’t bothering he have no need to bother them because he already have them.

    You said more true stuff about demons, elves, hell, mortals, witches, warlocks and evil spirits than I ever heard preached from a pulpit. This is the first time I ever read anyone knew what St. Jude was talking about in verse :14. I know this is fictional literature but it’s a lot like Milton and Thomas Moore work if you were to put it in a modern content.

    This is one of the few new authors I sincerely believe can compete with the established ones. It’s a book for serious readers. It’s not a light read and but an exciting and very thrilling read. But it’s well worth the price. I’ll admit, I was skeptical when I first bought it at the recommendation of a colleague. I thought it would be like so many I have read in the paranormal romance genre but surprisingly it was not. The main protagonist hasn’t been overdone so many times in literature unto the point of boredom. Usually every other book has the same main protagonist just change the color of the hair or eyes. But this one is truly different. A rare find in American literature. Ana BuFaye is an excellent, brilliant heroine. A truly believable one. I loved research conducted in creating the character Azazel from the literary of yore and legends. It shows in the writing. A. White did a sublime job of weaving a difficult topic and subject into a readable and enjoyable novel. The different light projected on the main protagonists is what captured and held my attention and made me read it. I’m glad it reflected the true diversity of America and the world rather than as most literature I have read would have the one to believe America and the world actually is.

    You’re on the road to an epic series. You just don’t know it yet. People loves the way Ana is portrayed. She isn’t bitchy, crazy, a crybaby, stupid, slutty, or wimpy. She acts according to the situation before her. In her true self she’s majestic. She’s noble, honest, caring, and true if you let her be but she can make you think twice about attacking her again if she must. If you live to tell the tale. She’s a new type of heroine I haven’t seen portrayed before. If I met a woman like her I would marry her in a heartbeat.

    I finally finished the book. Whew! That was a helluva ride! I had never indulged in a big book. My usual reads are under 300 pages but most are 100-150 pages but I liked it. But it’s not the book for anyone who like light reads. It’s heavy. It mentally drags you out of safe place to a world most people don’t know exist. There are deep psychological twists in the book. The scary part is everything seems to every day. So ordinary but there’s nothing ordinary about the things they (Ana and Bea) encounters. It goes deep into the real world of witchcraft and sorcery. Not the skimpy make-believe being spurt all over the place. As an avid Harry Potter fan it made me take a second look at the stories of my childhood. If you stripe away all the fantastical make believe stuff…this is what Harry really is like.

    I’m 26 so I decided it’s time to try a real adult book as to why I picked this selected to read. Many parts are not for the fade at heart. It isn’t blood or guts kind of scary but was a different kind of psychological scary that deep down you know it exist or has a real possibility of existing. It reminded me of the accounts I read in college of victims describing their lives when trying to escape the Third Reich. Most didn’t make it. Anne Frank is proof most didn’t escape.

    This book made me look at life different. That everyone isn’t safe and secured from harm.

    “Unholy Pursuit: The Devil on My Trail” is a book for the dangerous present age in which we lives. The author plainly writes about the fact that there are people who exist who are targeted for whatever reason and just like those of Nazi Germany. But we as a society are burying our heads in the sand pretending we do not see it.

    It speak of things happening right now although it was written I think twenty years ago. It’s not a dystopian book in the traditional sense. But it burst the myth of a we live in a safe, comfortable society straight to Hell. Unlike in “Gone Girl” where one person was after the main character. In “Unholy Pursuit: The Devil on My Trail” the main character is stalked from place to place crisscrossing the country trying to get away from these murders whom no seemed to know exist.

    Although, I read the book a year ago. The recent shooting at a popular online workplace called YouTube prompted me to write a statement in how none of us are truly safe. No matter where you live or how rich your neighborhood is. I don’t know how this author wrote about things happening now twenty years ago but it’s in this book. It written in a psychological frightening way. The fact it’s happening now but somehow the author knew exactly what would be going on in the last ten years to twenty years before it actually happened left me stunned.

    All this have left me baffled. Usually, I read a book, forget the book and move on to the next one but this book is so unforgettable.

    I’m not saying the author is into charlatanism or anything like that but I read another book by the same author called “Bea’s Halloween” and the author mentioned a deadly flood in the exact place in Texas where ‘one’ actual took place. Again, it was written years before the flood in Beaumont, Texas. Lighting doesn’t strike twice in the same place.There’s something supernatural going on here.

    I find it scary as shit that’s there’s a possibility of some unknown nutjob out there watching and tracking your every move and gathering unknown enemies against you. The real scary part is those who helps the nutjobs seem normal. They’re neighbors, so-called friends, bosses and just about anyone the character encounters has a potential to be an ally to those trying to kill her and her kid. Wow! That was a hell of a thriller.

    The horror famed writers do not have anything on this author and their books. It made me take a second look at witchcraft and sorcery which I was once so enamored with. In “Unholy Pursuit: The Devil on My Trail” it’s written that once one joins the occult there’s no way out except through death. No, this not Harry Potter. Nikola is a a monster the world created.

    • Thank you for your evaluation. I’m sorry about that a tragic occurred today and I’m also sorry it made you feel it was important to write about the book. But please know, I do not possess any supernatural abilities. These are all things of my imagination. 🙂 How has these things came true? I have no idea?

    The plot and story line is ⲢERFECT! It’s thrilling, riveting! It’s like living a real person’s life through the drama and dialogue of the book. The book got me hooked on the story after the first page. “Hellions to the left, hellions to the right,” It’s fresh and original approach based on the Christian Creed. It isn’t stuffy and stiff. It’s affluent and liquid.

    I fell in love with Ana and her no nonsense attitude. She’s intense and gallant, loving and loyal, a free spirit and innovative, very intelligent and unorthodox, and a true force of divinity to be beckoned with. She believes in God but isn’t religious.

    It’s a story of the gifted that’s came down from Heaven during Pentecost. The ability to fight demons and other evils. By a divine selection Ana gets chosen instead of an older more experience person. But then again, not much is customary nor conventional about Ana. Although she accepts the role reluctantly, she gives it her best shot. She learns how to fight and she takes on her training from Mother Harris and accept her blade as her destiny. I loved the showdown between her and Nikola. He found out just what tough stuff she’s made of when he kidnapped Bea with the intent to boil that sweet little child down to furniture polish. Ana came roaring through the evil palace like a Lioness of Judah and nearly brought the place down about his ears.

    I think there is a lot of awkwardness between Ana and Mother Harris in the beginning. Ana reminded Mother Harris of her own mentioned who lived four hundred years ago but died in battle saving her and the world. But after the bombing of Mother Harris’ home and the slaying of her children which Ana felt grievously responsible for. The two drew them close as blood relatives.

    But I couldn’t figure out if the saints in the cave dead or living. Some sounded as thus they were dead and had died centuries ago and other sounded very much on earth.

    The characters are complex like real people. They’re several dimensioned, and well developed, and their world keeps growing and changing. New characters are added as Ana and Bea travels. Each chapter bring in a new character but they all flows in smoothly together. There’s non-stop action from beginning to the end. The story contains quite a bit of violence, as well as explicit scenes and language, all perfectly written, to the point, and with purpose. Ana doesn’t cuss for the heck of it. Before I finished the first book which I didn’t want to end was I already to buy the rest of the series and joined the adventures of Ana and Bea to get the other stories.

    The truck breaking through the wall of the motel room scene and how she rose up to kill those trying to kill her was majestically written. I give it ten stars. They should’ve known not to follow her in the woods.

    The book reminded me of how the industry took a chance on “The Black Panther” and it paid off. This author took a chance on a mother and child and it’s paying off.

    The movie The Black Panther just proved that a black main character can be as exciting or just as exciting as anyone else. I like the way Ana is portrayed as a strong, kind, loving mother who isn’t flawed by her own nature but by the things forced upon her. I find this book equal to the greatest books about a female protagonist such as Offred in “The Handmaid Tale”. It’s a realistic prospective of a black woman’s life. She has killers after her and no one pays any attention but the moment someone say she did something she paid attention. I say this kind of mentally will continue unless people of African American descent demand more accountability for the actions of others. I know why you didn’t use a white Protagonist is that it would be unbelievable that a white woman and child could be chased all over the country by psychos and no one helped them.

    I think more women need to read this book. It’s not a fluffy airy read but it a necessary read. The author cleverly points out so many ways harassers operates in subtle manner. Many of these things are happening today.

    True, it’s fictional but the realistic scenes descriptive written in the stalking incidents are bone chilling. Too much ignore this type of harassment until someone ends up dead. There are signs of it all but sky written but the public and law enforcement ignores it. For example where the author talks about the internet being used a tracking tool is why the main character is off the grid. That’s true of today. Harassers use the internet to stalk their victims. I’m happy someone wrote about gangstalking.

    I discovered this series about 2 years ago and have been a fan ever since. There are so many elements to this speculative fiction novel that I too wondered if the author is like Michael Nostradamus. The flood and tornado in Beaumont, Tx isn’t the only account that read like an ominous prediction. I like it they are able to use biblical themes without getting preachy with it.
