I just completed my interview with Shakuita Johnson who is a wonderful and talented author. Thank you for taking the time to do the interview with me Shakuita!
What inspired you to write a witchy related book?
I have loved watching movies/tv shows about witches for as long as I can remember. The Witches, Hocus Pocus, Charmed…you name it I’ve probably seen it. Plus I love making spells…to me it’s just like writing poetry.
Do you have a favorite witch movie or tv show?
The Witches…because Anjelica Huston.
If you could cast a single spell on someone who would it be and what would the spell consist of?
Spells are tricky…what you ask may not be what you get. Wording is key. If anything I would want to be told the truth and I would want this from the entire male population.
What is your favorite paranormal creature and why?
Vampires…they are death’s mistresses. You are lured into a sense of false reality and they are beautiful in their destruction and deadly in their intentions.
If you was a witch and had to have a familiar but it could not be the typical cat what animal would you choose?
Wolf…I’m convinced I was one in another life. Next to vampires they are my second favorite in the paranormal word for viciousness and cunning.
What is the name of your witch book/books and your pen name?
Dark Indiscretions and Dark Indiscretions: Monster Unleashed. I write under my real name Shakuita Johnson.
Do you have a favorite witch book other than your own?
Yes Kim Harrison’s The Hollows series.
If your witch book was to be turned into a movie who would be casted as your main characters?
I have a dreamcast…it’s not nearly finished but it’s a good deal of the characters…still have a few I need to add for the next book coming out.
If you could put a curse on someone who has done you wrong in the past what would the curse entail?
Curses are another tricky thing. I believe when you cast curses you do harm to yourself as well. I mean have you seen The Craft…prime example of what happens when you use witchcraft selfishly.
When it comes to the witches in your book please give me three words to describe them including looks, characteristics or even just the type of witch they are.
Well my witches are half vampyra so I would say they are ruthless, evil reincarnated, and vicious. They case spells on account of their witch half and they are extremely powerful.
