UFI welcomes Isaiyan Morrison Author of Deamhan. Thanks for Joining us!!
My name is Isaiyan Morrison and I'm the author of Deamhan. I'm currently a student pursuing my Bachelors in Creative Writing and eventually I'd like to teach ESL. I'm also a veteran and an avid gamer.
Deamhan is the first book in the Deamhan Chronicles. They are different from the normal sanguine (blood) vampires that most people know about today. I love reading stories about the supernatural, but I've always wondered if something new could be introduced into the vampire genre. After researching I learned about psychic vampires and I decided to write about them. I wanted my "vampires" to be different.
Deamhan feed off the psychic energy of humans. However, like vampires, they don't like sunlight (they don't sparkle) and they can die from being staked (they have a hatred for anything "wood" related.) Among that, I promised myself that Deamhan would be mean and ruthless. They don't cry about their existence, they kill to survive, and they like it. I wanted survival to be part of the main storyline and an important aspect of their nature.
Deamhan took about 10 years to research and to write. There are so many different types of vampires in vampire lore and unfortunately, I couldn't pick them all.
The second book in the Deamhan Chronicles, Sensual Appetite, was accepted by my publisher Rainstorm Press. I'm currently working on the third book in the Deamhan Chronicles and I'm also writing Deamhan Tales, short stories involving characters from the main storyline.
An avid gamer, writer, and lover of history, Isaiyan Morrison was born and raised in Minnesota. She moved to San Diego, California while in the Navy. After serving four years of active duty, she moved to Los Angeles.
After a few years, she moved back to Minnesota where she started to pursue her dream to be an author.
Besides writing, she also likes to read, surf the internet, watch movies, and play video games. She likes warm drinks, pico de gallo, and her love for cilantro is legendary.
At one point she was sponsored to participate in video game tournaments. During that time she traveled to Canada, Nevada, New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, Iowa, Oklahoma, and Caribbean.
Her novel Deamhan, the first book in the Deamhan series, was accepted for publication by Rainstorm Press for release in mid 2013. She’s currently in talks to have the second book Sensual Appetite published by the same company.
Other novels the author has completed are The Carriers (Sphere Episode One,) The Bond (Sphere, Episode Two,) and Old Farmer’s Road to name a few.
She’s currently writing the third Deamhan book titled, Revelation, and Maris. The Brotherhood Files.
Deamhan Chronicles #1
Deamhan Chronicles #1
Deamhan have survived by remaining hidden in the shadows. Ramanga, Lamia, Metusba, and Lugat have been overshadowed by what humans know as the modern vampire. But what if vampires aren't the real threat?
One woman's search for her mother who disappeared without a trace on the streets of Minneapolis takes her into the precarious world of Deamhan, psychic vampires who rule the underground nightlife in the city's most darkest corners.
She gains the trust of the only other human familiar with the Deamhan lifestyle. With his help she finds not only can the Deamhan not be trusted but it s her own father, president of a ruthless organization of researchers, who has diabolically maintained that distrust.
