Jennifer Malone Wright - The Vampire Hunter's Daughter - Author Interview

Author Interview

1. Who is the plot based around?
The plot in The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter is based around a 14/15 year old girl named Chloe Kalistrate. Chloe witnesses her mother murdered by vampires and is rescued by vampire hunters, only to discover that she is descended from the vampire hunter lines.

2. What is the main idea of the plot?
The Main idea of the plot is that Chloe wants to kill the vampires responsible for her mother’s death. So, she goes to live with the vampire hunters. Soon, she discovers the man responsible for her mother’s murder is her father.

3. When does the plot take place?
In real time, I haven’t specified a year or anything.

4. Where does the plot take place?
Again, I didn’t specify where the cities around them are, but I’ve created a fictional town, a gated community of vampire hunter’s, where they are born and raised, and train to kill vampires. But, it’s like any other town otherwise.

5. Why did the plot develop the way it did?
I just write. I’m a pantzer, I didn’t do a whole lot of planning ahead. It just happens for me. But, I did know what direction I wanted to take. I did this because I wanted to integrate a little bit of mythology in with the vampires. I also developed it so that Chloe would build new relationships after losing her mother, losing everything. I wanted her to become part of the vampire hunting community and maintain her mission of finding her father.

6. How did you come up with the idea for the plot?

This idea started as the idea of a school teacher who was a vampire hunter by night. But, I started to write it and then realized that this lady needed a back story. So, I created the back story for her and Chloe was born. I found that I loved writing from the perspective of a teenage girl who suddenly found out that she was a hunter and needed to train herself to be a killer. So I just kept writing the storyline.
