About unholypursuit

A. White is a long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly who has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga," which should be finished this year. She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. 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 came 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.

    Я думаю, что ваши рассказы великолепны. Новое и захватывающее. Я вижу, что вам не слишком мешают использовать многорасовых персонажей. У вас есть русские персонажи?

    translation:

    I think your stories are great. New and exciting. I see you are not so prejudiced against using multiracial characters. Do you have any Russians characters?

    • Hi Vorochalov, it’s nice to have you with us. I translated your words because most reader here reads English. I find in writing, it adds flavor to a story to add every ethnicity of the human rainbow. Yes, I do have a Russian character but he is in one of the much later books.
