Chloe Neill is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Devil’s Isle, Chicagoland Vampires, and Dark Elite series. She was born and raised in the South, but now makes her home in the Midwest. When not writing, she bakes, knits, Pins, and scours the Internet for good recipes and great graphic design. Chloe also maintains her sanity by spending time with her boys–her favorite landscape photographer/husband and their dogs, Baxter and Scout. (Both she and the photographer understand the dogs are in charge.)


Hello, everyone! I’m really glad to be here, and so excited about the release of THE BEYOND!
Greatest thing you learned at school.
How to type! I learned on a very old typewriter, but because of that, I can type pretty quickly, which definitely helps on my aggressive publishing schedule.

Defining moment during your youth when you realized you wanted to be a writer.
I didn’t want to be a writer when I was young; I thought writing on a deadline was one of the worst things a person had to do. Now I do it *a lot*. I started writing in my mid-thirties, because I needed an escape, and creating a fictional world—a fictional family—suited me perfectly.

What’s one thing that readers would be surprised to find out about you?
I was a vegetarian nearly the entire time I was writing about Merit’s eating adventures in Chicagoland Vampires. J

Which character have you enjoyed getting to know while writing THE BEYOND?
I love them all! Claire’s bravery, Liam’s cool confidence, Tadji’s complexity, Gavin’s sass, Gunnar’s loyalty. I especially love writing Moses, who popped through the page as a total surprise. He’s funny and smart and a little bit gross, and he cares deeply about his human friends.

What advice would you give to someone who wanted to have a life in writing?
Be prepared to work incredibly hard, and for your success to depend on luck as much as skill.

Thanks so much for having me today!

Sensitive Claire Connolly must journey to another world in the electrifying fourth installment of Chloe Neill’s post-apocalyptic urban fantasy series.

It’s been a year since the Veil between the human world and the world Beyond was torn apart, and war began again. Sensitive Claire Connolly and bounty hunter Liam Quinn have been helping their human and paranormal allies fight back against the ravaging invaders and save what’s left of New Orleans.

But a new enemy has arisen, more powerful than any they’ve seen before, and even Devil’s Isle cannot hold her. . .

When Claire learns of a new magical weapon–one built by paranormals themselves -she knows it could turn the tide of war. But to reach it, she and Liam will have to cross into the Beyond itself. In a world full of hostile magic and dangerous foes, she’ll have to channel the powers she once kept hidden in order to survive. New Orleans hangs in the balance, and the storm is growing closer . . .
