I found Hunter S. Jones through Twitter. After reading Fables of Reconstruction, I was immediately hooked by her unique blend of myth and the occult. She does a masterful job of putting a different spin on the zombie genre along with a touch of stunning erotica. Here’s my interview with Hunter and your opportunity to get to know this mysterious Southern belle a little better.
Tell us about Hunter S. Jones? Who are you and what do you do?
I believe in fully supporting the work of fellow artists. The Hendrix quotes are an analogy. The only words I used from Voodoo Child in Fables were “Don’t be late”.
According to Haitian legend zombies are created by blowing a powder into someone face, usually into a wound on their neck. (Makes sense because that’s the jugular vein, so it would carry the powder throughout the victims body.)
I spent 12 years as a pharmaceutical rep, so I’m fascinated by the effect of plants, etc., on our bodies. Hence, all the research…
Haitian Vodou (an editor had me Americanize it to voodoo for Fables) changes people into zombies for two reasons – possession and desire. Possession, mainly for reasons of prostitution (which is in Fables) Desire is self-explanatory.
