An Interview with Kelly Creagh

Kelly Creagh is the author of Nevermore. I hope you enjoy the interview!

1.Why did you choose Edgar Allan Poe?
My character, Varen, chose Poe as the focus for his and Isobel's
English project because, as a writer, he related to Poe. From there, I
began to discover all sorts of strange things about Poe and about his
mysterious death in 1849. Soon, Edgar pushed to the forefront of the story
and maintained a steady presence.

2. Did you have a say in the cover? It is gorgeous!

Thank you. I LOVE my cover. Something that does not convey very well
on a computer screen image, is the special UV effect. When you see the book
in person, the writing overlay is a glossy raised black. It’s kind of
see-through and so spooky. I didn't have a lot of say on the cover but I'm
glad I didn't. The end result of my cover blew away everything I had ever
had in mind and I could not be happier. After you read the story, if you
take another look at the cover, you may notice subtle nuances pertaining to
the story. Also, if you look very closely at Varen's collar, you can see
"Poe" written in the overlay. I love LOVE that.

3. Is there a reason behind naming the main boy character, Varen?
I like Varen because it's not a common name. It also happens to be an
anagram for "Raven."

4. What is your favorite Poe poem?
Annabel Lee

5. Is there anything that you would like to add?
For more information about Nevermore, you should check out my website
at See if you can find the hidden links. Also, there
is a free song download on my “Extras” page! The song is by Varen’s
favorite band, Cemetery Sighs, and appears on page 80 of the novel.
