Meet: Author Azaaa Davis
I consider myself a crunchy mom and indie author. A native New Yorker, I currently living in New Hampshire with my husband and daughter.
I am a stay at home writer mom. My dream in life is to write popular fiction that inspires people. Reading a fantasy novel at age fourteen changed my life. It sparked my imagination and woke me up. I developed a love for reading, discovered a love for writing, and remembered my love for drawing. Reading helped me dream big, and create opportunities for myself.
I started writing This Time—a story about a demon hunter and those who love her—in the spring of 2017. My aim is to publish one book in 2018, and then two books in 2019.
Fight with Nadira Holden, a demon hunter, in a new urban fantasy series that combines monster-slaying action, family drama and steamy romance.
Not even death can stop her.
Fearsome demon hunter Nadira has been torn from her next life and resurrected in present-day New York. The demons she once battled have made peace with humans. Or, so they claim. But brawls between demons and humans are becoming more frequent, and human leaders are disappearing.
Tasked by the shadowy organization that trained her, she must battle her own personal trauma and once again fight for the souls of mankind. Will Nadira remain a beacon of light to those fighting for humankind? Or will she lose her humanity to the darkness within?
Don’t miss This Time, the first novel in the Nadira Holden series, by author Azaaa Davis!
A snippet from This Time:
“I hate them,” Nadira said with genuine contempt. She allowed herself to feel all the anger she felt the night she walked into the sea.
“They stole my peace, my afterlife. I’m stuck here, an echo of my former self. I’d sooner punish them than help their lost cause.”
Shaking his head, Derek said, “I stare at that pretty mouth of yours and hear lies. I look into those sad eyes of yours and see rage.”
His left hand jutted out and grabbed her neck tightly before she could turn away. The pain was immediate as the soft muscles and delicate bones of her neck were squeezed together slowly.
- Do not edit as you go, trying to make every sentence and paragraph perfect during your first draft. It is a waste of time. For draft one, you simple want all of your words on paper.
2. Break up your big goals into small, manageable, baby steps. Write them down. Be specific. Tackle them one at a time. You can do it!
I come from a big family, 5 siblings!
I studied French from middle school to college, and can’t string a coherent sentence together.
I love traveling! I’ve been to Mexico and several Caribbean islands. I want to visit parts of Africa and Europe one day.
My favorite books are Daughter of the Forest (Sevenwaters Trilogy) by Juliet Marillier and Kushiel’s Dart (Kushiel’s Legacy Series) by Jacqueline Carey. These are amazing fantasy series with superior storytelling. I laughed, I cried, I was teleported to another world, and had to know what would happen next.
