Interview with Skyler Patterson
Tell us a bit about yourself.
Hi! My name is Skyler Patterson. I am from New York City and I am an independent author of Paranormal Romance and Fantasy Fiction.
Tell us about your most recent book.
My new book is called Revenge Of The Wolf Two. It is the sequel to Revenge Of the Wolf which I released in August of 2015 on Amazon kindle. It is a gothic tale of paranormal romance and horror. It picks up the story of what happens with the romance between the Protagonist Justice Sorrowfell and his un-dead fiancé Angelica Innocenta. Also it follows Justice’s issues with his tourist ,companion, wolf-pack. It also deals with the two antagonistic policemen who are closing in on him. It deals with how Justice can continue to eliminate outlaws while romancing his fiancé and planning a wedding! (that’s right! A wedding!)
Who is the villain or the antagonist in your story and what is he or she like?
Wow, that is an interesting question. Traditionally, an antagonist is a person who actively opposes or is hostile to someone. An adversary. In my book the protagonist Justice Sorrowfell’s fiancé is murdered by an outlaw. Justice goes on a spree of revenge as a skin-changing vigilante to try and rid the city of outlaws. The two policeman who want to take him down; Wilhelm Dogood & Nolan Noluck , they would be the antagonists of this tale. Yet they would be considered the good guys as well.. Inspector Nolan wants to put an end to Justice Sorrowfell. Nolan also is not willing to believe that there is such a thing as a “Skin-changer Werewolf”. Inspector Wilhelm is more of the open- minded mentor to inspector Nolan. Wilhelm believes that the supernatural exists in the world. Both of these policemen feel that yes Justice Sorrowfell is getting rid of horrible criminals. But they feel that in doing so Justice is a horrible criminal as well.
Is one of your main characters a supernatural creature that is traditionally considered “evil’? If yes how does this character break that traditional stereotype?
That is completely true. The Werewolf is usually considered evil. He is known to become more powerful when the moon is full. He also has no control over what happens when he turns into a werewolf. My Werewolf breaks that stereotype as he can change into a Werewolf at will. He can change into a four-legged wolf as well, should he wish it. And he remains aware of what he does when he does skin-change and shape-shift. My Werewolf is a skin-changer vihalante/anti-hero.. I love to take horrible dreadful creatures and make them glorious heroes!
What do you think are the heroic qualities that your villain/antihero/supernatural creature possesses?
Okay, Justice Sorrowfell is upset that the love of his life has been murdered. Although he still is able to have her in his life as an un-dead type of beautiful zombie; Justice knows that if there are less outlaws in the world, no other young lovers would have to lose a loved one to their evil. Justice saw that the police were moving too slow in bringing Angelica’s murderer to the gallows, so he used his supernatural abilities to do the job himself.
Is there any respect between this character and the hero/heroine of your story?
Absolutely. The heroine of this story is Angelica Innocenta. Justice Sorrowfell completely respects her. They both are on the same page. Angelica tells him that she wants him to go out and kill all outlaws in 18th century New York. Justice however is not perfect. He has flaws.
If you could give this character one piece of advice what would it be?
I would tell Justice Sorrowfell: “STOP CHEATING ON YOUR WOMAN”! Ha!
What type of antagonist is your favorite?
My favorite antagonist is actually more evil then the two inspectors in my tale. They would be more conniving and heartless, with psychological issues. I guess I need more evil antagonists! Ha!
Who is your favorite fictional villain? (can be from a book, movie, or television)
Ok, that is easy Dracula, for being pure evil with incredible supernatural abilities. Heath Ledger’s Joker from ‘The Dark Knight’” for being evil with all of the psychological, Skitzophrenia.
To you, how important is a good antagonist?
Okay, a good antagonist is very important. Every story should have a good against evil struggle somewhere in it. The reader enjoys experiencing the protagonist’s journey. The reader wants to find out how the protagonist overcomes the antagonist or does not.
Who is one of your favorite fictional anti-heroes?
That would be the most famous fictional vigilante/antihero; Batman!
What is one of your favorite paranormal creatures and why?
Okay, that would be Dracula! That would be because he has incredible supernatural abilities. He can shift shape skin-change and drink blood. He can appear as mist. HE ROCKS!

REVENGE OF THE WOLF TWO
ABSINTHE AND OPIUM
JUSTICE AND I LOUNGED WITHIN THE TAVERN. Justice had finished eating a meal of roasted lamb. I only wanted red wine. We continued to walk down the streets of York until we met an intriguing sight… “OPIUM AND ABSINTHE” read the sign.
“LET US TRY IT JUSTICE”! said i. “THAT?! Okay we shall lift our spirits! Un-dead, immortal spirits that we are”! said he. In we walked. I caught sight of a comely woman leaning up and lighting a long holder for a type of a cigar. She blew a large white plume of Opium-smoke our way. It devoured us both! We walked right through it . Through the white cloud could be seen, two, identical, twin Asian woman. They were bowing before us within a praying position. They rose in perfect unison through the smoke of white! The Asian women were beautiful! They escorted us into the smoky, dark, candle-lit space. There were statues of Buddha and of naked woman throughout . There were many sofas with a place where one could rest his feet. There were pillows where one could rest his head. The Asian women placed two glasses near to the sofa. Inside was the absinthe. Justice and i drank of the strange green, liquid. “Tis truly different.” said i. And then i took the Opium and smoked it. Justice did the same. We breathed it in and blew out white smoke. It surrounded us both like a cloud. Then we both laid upon our backs upon the sofa. Upon a sudden i was walking down the cobblestone streets of York, with my dear friend Selita Solace, Sanchez. She was tossing me into men! I was riding my steed Ebony. I was sitting at my mahogany desk writing my endless diaries. I lifted up the diary book and blood began to spill from the book! It poured endlessly! It covered me completely! I was drenched in blood! Suddenly my dear family was standing near to my coffin! Selita was standing there too. They were crying and grieving! I leaned up and climbed out of it! I walked right by them! I took the hand of my beloved Justice! He slammed the coffin shut after i departed from it and i was kissing him! A priest was reading from a book, standing before us! Suddenly policemen began running towards us! They were yelling something about: “MURDERERS! VIGILANTIES”!! One aimed his pistol at Justice and squeezed the trigger! Justice was hit right in his chest! White smoke was everywhere! Down Justice fell upon his back! He was tilting backwards in a time- crawling, slowed motion! Blood was splattering! A policeman lunged at me! In his hand was a hammer and a wooden stake! Down i fell upon my back! The man was hammering a wooden stake through my un-dead heart! “DIIEE VAMPIREEE”!!! He was yelling! Blood was spraying upwards like a geyser! Suddenly the blood became red roses! The roses were tall! There we were standing within a floral field! Justice and i! We were unharmed! Justice was kissing me long and wet upon my lips! And then i was awake ! “What a splendid daydream my Justice man!” said I! Upon a sudden i leaned up from the sofa. I could smell something. I could smell someone! Justice could sense it too! Finally we located the origin! There was a man and a woman laid out on a sofa near to us! They were smoking the Opium, Then they dropped the Opium they were smoking! Their eyes were suddenly alight! They were sniffing into the air. And then they were slowly tilting upwards! They tilted like two trees! Theirs was a slow and graceful ascending! And then me and Justice did the same! We four tilted upwards at the same time! We had faced each other in perfect unison! We sliced through the white smoke! What a sight! “LE MAGNIFIQUE! THE FRENCHMAN I SMELL HIS SCENT UPON YOU! LE MONSIEUR JEAN FRANCOIS”!! said the man. WOLF-HELLS! The man was handsome. (VERY,VERY,VERY,HANDSOME) (I ceased my gaze lest Justice should sense my disrespectful gander!) The handsome Frenchman was long and blonde of hair. He was brawny. He regarded me and slowly nodded his head. As if in agreement of something..He was in red frock of finery as was the comely, female standing near him. They both were at least twenty something years aged. She was in all red and her hair was platinum! She was shapely and comely. “Madame, Madamoselle how are you? I am The Lady Thirsterra Sweetsip and he is “Le Cont Deberge Adieu”! We are from France! WHERE IS HE !? THE ONE CALLED JEAN”?! asked she! “My dear friend is most likely hunting his prey”! replied Justice. The Frenchman leaned in close to Justice and sniffed him! “Ahhhh you do not partake of the innocent meal! A noble soul!” ‘said he “HA”! snickered the female! “YOU ARE NO WOLF SIR”! said Justice to the Frenchman! The Frenchmen was smiling and his sharp canine teeth were gleaming in his mouth! A man was leaning up watching this entire spectacle! The ghostly rising and the exposed canine fangs of the man and female from France! The fangs of my Angel. The watching, man looked at his opium pipe! The man tossed down his Absinthe and his Opium! It shattered upon the floor! His Opium was scattered embers! He left quickly! “Ahhh yesss you see it sir”! said The Frenchman. “Wee areee NOSFERATU, VAMPYRE! Exactly the same as you are both, YET DIFFERENT”! said the Frenchman! The Frenchwoman was leaning into me and sniffing me! “You are no wolf, nor Vampire! You are un-dead”! said the woman called Thirsterra to this Angelica! The Frenchwoman was pointing to me! “REMARKABLE”! said the Frenchman. “An undying love, come from yon grave”! said the French woman. Her voice was pure Paris! “How romantic! Yet you are un-dead, and your lover he is an immortal wolf’! said she to this Angelica. “IT IS INDEED A TRUTH”! said i. And then the Frenchman spoke once more: “We have saw the sights! We have drank from the blood of the settlers within your beautiful land! We go now back home! Back to our beloved homeland! France”! said she. And then the Frenchman spoke once more: “Tell the one Jean Francois we give our greetings! And you both are bid welcome to visit France! Come to Corte D. Azur! Come and find the one-legged priest Arno at “The Cemetery Je Suis Vivante”! THE WEREWOLF AND THE VAMPIRE WILL DECIDE THE FATE OF ALL OF FRANCE! JOIN US”! said he. I looked at the two tourists. I turned to Justice. And when i turned back towards the tourists They were gone! I caught sight of bats flying from an open window! I ran to the door and stepped out onto the cobblestone. Upon a sudden a town, boy-crier handed me a paper while he cried: “ EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ABOUT IT ! PEOPLE BITTEN AND KILLED! KILLED BY A WOLF OR A VAMPIRE”!
