Character Interview with Keeley Smith's Jack Thomas and Giveaway


500 and then some but who is counting? I know you are thinking I look better than you, it sucks but it comes with my element. (Grins) I look 17 and will look like this until I’m killed by some magical power or I fall over dead at 3000 years old.

Describe your features to someone who hasn’t met you: 

I’m tall, some would say I’m good looking, I don’t see myself this way (shrugs his shoulders) I have brown hair and brown eyes, you know I look normal, really.

Favourite Book

I don’t read all that much, I haven’t got the time what with kicking serious ass and eating/sleeping. If I did have the time to read I would love to read a book on someone’s life story.

Favourite food

Fish and chips. You can’t beat it, slap on some salt and vinegar and it is a great meal!

Who would you like to play in the film of your life: 

oooo, now it would have to be someone brilliant, because, well, my life is brilliant as you know. I think someone not too famous so it doesn’t take the lime light away from me so Tom Cruise is definitely out of the question. I don’t know. Ask a woman that question, it would be easier for her to answer.

What luxury item would you take with you on a desert island: 

Eli, he would be able to use his power and find all the food and things. I’m not good with that stuff, I can use my element to see where we were...

What woman would you take with you

Any woman that wanted to come (laughs) I like strong, independent women so as long as they are able to fight their own, they can come.

What would be your ideal date: 

I’ve always wanted to go zorbing, it looks so much fun, get into a giant ball and throw yourself down a hill, that would be such a cool date!

What are you most proud of? 

I guess I’m proud of that fact that I’ve come through death, literally, and lived for my family who couldn’t, their choice was taken away from them. It is still difficult to come to terms with what happened to them in 1612, but I’m proud of my strength and how I’m managing to move on in life.

And finally, if you weren’t a witch what job would you be doing?:  

I don’t like the boring 9-5 jobs, but I don’t think anyone does (flashes an easy smile) so I would be doing something interesting, perhaps something like what Eli does with his gadgets, maybe I could do some guinea pigging of new computer games to see if they are good enough. I would like that kind of job!

17 year old Cora Hunt has one wish, to live the life of a normal teenager. Her wish never comes true.

After her reluctant move to a sleepy village in the middle of Lancashire Cora's life is turned upside down when she discovers she is a witch. Cora is not just any old witch, she is the daughter of Alizon Device who was one of the most powerful witches of her time.

Dealing with her new found powers is quite a challenge, but when the past she didn't know about unearths new complications in the form of Jack Thomas, her life becomes increasingly dangerous with each waking minute. Jack also has a secret past, a past that clashes with Cora's.

A confrontation between the two results in a life or death situation. The brutal events of 1612 happened hundreds of years ago, but what Jack and Cora face is a definite déjà vu.

The only question is, will their fate be the same as those who perished in 1612?

A Pendle Hill Novella
Keeley Smith

Cora and Jack are childhood friends who have always lived next door to each other in a beautiful, idyllic part of Lancashire. What binds them as lifelong friends are their powers.

As young witches, life is hard. If the commoners find out their secret, they will be killed. But Cora is lucky, she has her best friend Jack by her side.

Having grown up together they know each other, they trust each other, they love each other. However their blossoming relationship is cut short by the events of one day. A date that will bring their perfect worlds crashing down around them.

20th August 1612

Cora and Jack are forced to face the reality of being a witch during these turbulent times, however they don’t know that their lives will become part of one of the most famous witch trials to have ever hit England.
The Pendle Hill witch trials of 1612.

About the Author:

I've always loved reading, it is a common known fact that I pretty much demolish a book a day. Expensive hobby, but a great one! I've dabbled with writing since the day I could actually write. So, it was only fitting that I had my first book published when I was 15.

If I'm not writing you would generally find me reading, creating jewellery, trawling social networking sites and listening to music. I will pretty much listen to any kind of music but I have two favourites, country music which has been with me since I was a little toddler and I also love to listen to movie scores, especially when I'm writing!

I currently live in Yorkshire with my husband.
