Interview with Reid Sanders from WITCH OF DEATH by Chrys Fey

I have special guests today. My friend Chrys Fey brought along Detective Reid Sanders, a man in a hurry.

Hello, everyone! My name is Chrys Fey and I’m here with Reid Sanders, the detective from my short story, Witch of Death. He’s not very patient, so I’ll get right to it.

Hello, Reid, thanks for stopping by. I have a pot of coffee and some sandwiches at the table. And don’t worry, they’re not dainty.

Thanks, Chrys, I’m starving.

I hope you can answer a few questions between bites, because our readers want to know more about you.

I think I can manage that.

1. When did you know you wanted to be a detective?

My father bought me a detective kit when I was eight complete with a plastic badge, handcuffs, and a notebook to write down what my imaginary suspects said. Ever since, I knew I was destined to be a detective.

2. What do you like most about your job?

Hands down . . . catching the bad guy. Finding the killer (or killers) is what I live for.

3. What do you like least?

The useless, senseless waste of human life. I’ve solved countless murders but that doesn’t make up for the lives lost.

4. Do you believe in the supernatural?

Of course not! There’s no such thing at the supernatural. It’s all make believe; stories told to kids to make them behave. There are no grandma-eating wolves or child-eating witches. There ‘s no such things as fairies, aliens, or vampires.

5. What was your first thought when you saw Detective Liberty Sawyer?

When I first saw her, I was stunned speechless. Liberty embodies your typical image of a witch with her sleek, long black hair and blood-red lips, but if you look closer, you can see how stunning she is with her sharp cheek bones and bright blue eyes. So my first thought was, “Wow, she’s beautiful . . . for a witch.”

6. And your second thought?

By the time I got my bearings, we were shaking hands and an odd warm tingle traveled up my arm from our clasped hands. That would make my second though, “What the f***?”

7. She said you think she’s the witch of death? Why is that?

Because the killer is a witch and Liberty admitted to being a witch. On top of that, she knows things about the murders that only the killer would know. Plus, I’ve seen her do magick. It was incredible. Impossible. But I saw it and I saw the corpse. If she’s not the killer then that means there’s another witch out there who is.

8. One more time . . . are you sure you don’t believe in the supernatural?

Believing is one thing. Although I’ve seen things I’m not used to I’m not ready to say I believe in it. Any of it. Not yet.

Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to talk, Reid.

No problem, Chrys. The sandwiches were good.

I’m glad you liked them, take one for the road.

Don’t mind if I do. *Grabs a sandwich and salutes on his way out the door.*

He really is a man in a hurry. Thanks, Chrys, for sharing him and his insights. I love the covers of your two books.

Blurb for Witch of Death:

Detective Reid Sanders doesn’t believe in the supernatural, but when he’s faced with a crime scene that defies the laws of nature, he has no other choice but to start believing. And solving a magical murder involves working with a witch.

Liberty Sawyer embodies the look of your classic evil witch, so, it’s no surprise when she uncovers the murderer is a witch that she becomes Reid’s number one suspect. If she can’t convince him otherwise, more people could lose their lives to dark magic, including her.

Also available: GHOST OF DEATH


Jolie Montgomery, a twenty-one-year-old woman, wakes up in an alley next to her corpse. She has no memories of her murder or the night she died. She didn’t even see the killer’s face before he or she took her life. Wanting justice, Jolie seeks answers in the only way a ghost can...by stalking the lead detective on the case. 

Avrianna Heavenborn is determined to find the person responsible for a young woman’s death. She gets closer to the killer’s identity with every clue she uncovers, and Jolie is with her every step of the way.

But if they don’t solve her murder soon, Jolie will be an earth-bound spirit forever.
