Welcome Conor.  When is your birthday and how old are you?
My birthday is April 28, and I’m twenty-nine years old. Birthdays don’t hold good memories for me, at least, not since my twenty-first. Shit got real that day.

Having read your story, I understand.  How do you spend your days and what are your hobbies?
Hobbies? Like…stamp collecting? Ha. I train and study a lot. My life and others often depends on my skill and conditioning, as well as my knowledge of demons and how to kill them. There’s only nine Wraith warriors to fight demons in this world, so we don’t get much down time. When I’m off rotation, I like to ride Brimstone to relax and spend time with Merry, of course. I went too many years not being able to do that.

Can you list 3 words that best describe you?
Loyal, deadly, determined

All good qualities in a hero.  Where have you traveled?
There isn’t anywhere on this earth I haven’t been—Wait. No, was there last year.

So...well-traveled!  If you could keep only one material item you own, what would it be?
Only one, huh? My knives. The photo of Merry I carried for eight years I know by heart. I don’t need to see it to remember one thing about her face. But my knives…I can take on anything with those blades, and I do mean anything.

That's good for the rest of us!  What is your favorite food?  Favorite drink?
Steak. A lot of it. Rare. And a good Irish whiskey.

Finally, who would play you in a movie?  
Henry Cavill comes the closest. But I’m bigger.

Demon-slayer Conor O’Shea is about to engage in the most dangerous encounter of his life—facing the woman he scorned.
For years, Merry Bradbury's world revolved around Conor O'Shea. After his sudden betrayal leaves her alone and heartbroken, she comes home to settle her past and move into the future. The last person she expects to see is Conor.
Conor never wanted anything more than forever with Merry. Discovering he is a Wraith warrior, honor bound to fight demons, destroys that plan. Merry is his Amorta, his one true soul mate, but he leaves to keep her safe from the evil that stalks him.
Eight years later, Conor's worst fear is realized, and he returns to defend Merry from his enemies. Can he save her from an unspeakable fate and reclaim her heart? And if he does, will Merry be able to accept all that he is?
