Descend to Darkness
(A Krewe of Hunters Novella)
by Heather Graham
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Heather Graham comes a new story in her Krewe of Hunters series…
Angela Hawkins Crow awakens to find herself in total darkness. Despite her years as a Krewe agent, she is first seized with panic, but her life and her training kick in. She knows that she must stay calm and go back in her mind to find out how she got where she is…and where she might be.
Meanwhile, an eerie phone call comes in at Krewe headquarters, warning them all that Angela has been kidnapped, describing her ordeal, and lamenting the fact that she can’t be saved.
But there is no such thing with the Krewe. In the dark and in the light, the fight is on.
Angela determines that she might know what has happened to her, and she is prepared when her kidnapper can’t resist the temptation to check in on her.
By following his wife’s expertise with research, Jackson discovers what just might be happening—and in the darkness of night and the silence of the graveyard, he’ll risk everything to find the woman he loves.

Can you tell us why or how you chose to write about this couple for your novella?
Angela and Jackson are continuing characters from the first of the Krewe stories and I love checking up on them in life and where they’re going—and how things have changed since they first met and worked together.
Do you do anything to treat yourself when you finish writing a book?
Not really, because . . . favorite quote, John Lennon either created or often used . . . Life is what happens when you’re busy making plans! As we all know, we’re just crawling out of tough years. My treat right now is getting to see my out of state children—and since it’s life, that’s at their schedules because of jobs and kids and more! (Okay, if I can, I spend a night at Hardrock Hollywood. Amazing pools!)
If someone were to narrate your life, who would you want the narrator to be and why?
Cate Blanchett – most amazing actress out there, in my opinion!
What one piece of advice would you give an aspiring writer?
Give yourself a schedule (every day, one day a week, a few hours two to seven days, whatever!) As I said, life happens. Just get right back on the horse if you need to break your schedule for any reason. Don’t forget to keep reading—that is why most of us write, we have loved reading so much! And remember, advice is great. But there is no one right way to write. Listen to experienced people and use what works for you. No two people will ever do this just the same. Groups, conferences, and connecting are great in our field—honestly most are the nicest, most giving, and sharing people you can meet!
Can you give us a few lines from your work in progress?
For Annie Hamilton, it all began in the old cemetery.
What’s your cure for hiccups?
Water, water, water . . .
What mythical creature do you wish actually existed?
Leprechauns! I just know that I’d find one and he’d give me his pot of gold! Oh, well.
What’s the worst thing you’ve eaten out of politeness?
Haggis—my dad was from Stirling, Scotland. I was at a dinner one night when it was being served and, of course, I ate it. But all I could remember was my dad telling me that no, he did not care for it and he’d made sure that he worked all his life so that he could buy decent cuts of meat. Made me look up a lot of our foods—pizza came about as well because it was what people had and what they could afford!

She started out in theater and commercials, but once her children began to arrive, she stayed home and gave writing a try. She’s incredibly grateful to be doing what she’s doing for a living. Heather belongs to MWA, RWA, Sisters in Crime, HWA, and ITW, and has the recipient of the RWA Lifetime Achievement Award, a Silver Bullet for charitable works, and this year, she will receive the Thriller Master title from ITW.
