Interview with Annaliese Plowright, Author of The Hallowed

24 May 2022

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write The Hallowed: Part I?

The Hallowed was inspired by a nightmare where I woke up on a grocery store floor with no idea how I got there. The nightmare felt important and got my brain ticking over, and soon after The Hallowed was born.

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

I read across genres, but love to write supernatural/fantasy.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

The Familiars by Stacey Halls arrived in the post today!

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

My favorite scene to write was definitely when Cherry and Daisy break into Nicolas’s house. My heart pounded the whole time, like I was right there with them sneaking around in the dark. It was terrifying one moment and hilarious the next, so much fun!

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

Never give up.

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

I hope my readers remember The Hallowed, and the town of Strangeways, with a tiny tingle at the nape of their necks that has them obsessing day and night about what’s going to happen to Cherry Stokes in Part II!
