Today I have the pleasure of having a fellow canuck on the blog! Hi Kayden!
I live in Vancouver, British Columbia, with my houseful of animals and a computer I might as well be shackled to.
I’ve been writing about this world of vampires, magic, ghosts, witches, demons and beyond since I was seventeen, still possessing that first 140,000-word book that took me almost five years to write. That one book multiplied, and still does. While it started everything, it has been split up, fragmented till all is now, is an outline.
Having a weakness for vampire folklore, movies and books for more years than I can count, it shaped my figurative realm in so many ways, but many more characters have also popped up in the last year or two. There are even Deities kicking around, with their own mischief to be had.
|To date, this string of books I’ve written break down into so many series that intertwine and collide, giving the chance for the characters to grow in so many ways. And there is still so much to write, so many ideas to be had…
But I hope the end result is a book that you can’t put down until the very end, but that is every new author’s fondest wish, isn’t it?
My name is Canya Foxworth. I am a mated vampire, and I live in British Columbia Canada, with my beloved family. I am the Leader of the Surrey vampires, the Foxworth Coven. I have a seat on the Council, the vampiric government who rules our society we know. I have four adopted children, and one of my own blood. They are the lights of my life, and the reason I strive to make our little chunk of the world better for them.
I was convert into a vampire in the year 1904, in New Westminster, British Columbia, where I’d lived a life of quiet servitude, under the watchful eyes of my parents. My family was middle-class, and my father bitter about that, lashing out at my mother and me for what amounted to his failings. This made my mother a horrid taskmaster, who punished me, her only child, whenever she could.
It’s enough to drive someone mad! And for me, it almost did. But I found a way to get out, by the way of a rich boy from town. His name was Thomas Scott. We kept to the shadows, and I refused to think what this showed of our relationship. Even then, I’d like to think myself a smart girl, though desperate and deluded in my choice of paths to freedom. Soon enough, Thomas showed exactly what I’d meant to him. After he found out I was pregnant, Thomas tried to kill me in an elaborate plot to hide the fact he’d ever known me. Though he left me in the forest to rot, never realizing that I in fact, wasn’t dead—yet.
You know those moments of angelic enlightenment that make you know someone out there is watching over you, even in your darkest hour? That was exactly what happened. My salvation came in the form of a tall blonde stranger with strange glittering cornflower blue eyes. On sight, I trusted this man, and on a deeper level, felt I knew him.
Gregory Foxworth changed my life. He took me away from the life my parents had forced me into. He put a roof over my head and food on the table. I wasn’t expected to clean and tend animals anymore, but I stayed steadfast to my need to take care of him.
When I’d met him, I thought him human, just like any other man in town. How wrong we all were! I spent months in his home, while he traveled Canada on business, coming home on the occasion to spend time with me. I pined for him a long time, before he finally asked for my hand in marriage. When Gregory presented the ring, my life took another one-eighty. Gregory told me he was a vampire, but that was the only the beginning. How little I understood of what it really meant to be of another race, and the complex web of social and political structure surrounding the lifestyle. Even worse, my soon to be husband had enemies. One wanted him, his entire family and Coven dead in the name of vengeance. And to accomplish this? The Rogue, Antonio Bradley turned his attention on me. I became a tool for my beloved’s destruction.
But I’ve already written this entire story at the demand of the Council, who want the lives of the Foxworth family’s fight with the Rogue vampire, Antonio Bradley. In fact, my mate, Gregory and all of my children have to do the same.
Let us show you just what it’s like to be a vampire in this ever-changing world. The Foxworths may stumble, we may lose much along the way, but in the end, we will see the light at the end of tunnel, no matter what we have to do.
Thank you for coming to visit with me today, to learn more about me. Look for more about my family members and our journals during the Foxworth Blog Tour hosted by Bewitching Blog Tours.
