Interview with Tawny Stokes, Author of Demons of the Rich and Famous

Hi all! Today, I'll be sharing with you wonderful people a little interview I did with Tawny Stokes. Before I continue onto the interview. Here is a little bio of the author. :)

 Tawny Stokes has always been a writer. From an early age, she’d spin tales of serial killers in love, vampires taking over the world, and sometimes about fluffy bunnies turned bunnicidal maniacs. An honour student in high school, with a penchant for math and English, you’d never know it by the foot high blue Mohawk and Doc Martens, which often got her into trouble. No longer a Mohawk wearer, Tawny still enjoys old school punk rock, trance, zombie movies, teen horror films, and fluffy bunnies. She lives in Canada with her fantastical daughter, two cats, and spends most of her time creating new stories for teens.

Tawny also writes adult paranormal/urban fantasy fiction under the name Vivi Anna, and is an aspiring screenwriter.


1. What Inspired you to write Demons of the Rich and Famous?

Most of my stories come from character. Caden Butcher was no exception. I created him first and foremost. I thought what would it be like to be a teen exorcist, and what if most of your work came from Hollywood. I loved the movie Constantine, and I always wanted to write a character like that. I actually created Caden three or four years ago, but took me another year or so to write his story.

2. Whats the concept behind the Book Cover? Does it match the content?

I wanted the cover to be appealing, and have a mysterious look to it. My original cover I think was too ominous. The dude on the cover resembles Caden and the cemetery in the background tells of a particular part in the book.

3. What books are almost like Demons of the Rich and Famous?

One reviewer recommend this book for those who enjoy Cassandra Clare’s books. I’d also compare them to Nick Chronicles by Sherrilyn Kenyon, and The Demon’s Lexicon series by Sarah Rees Brennan.

4. Who's your main lead, who does he/she look like, give us a "dream cast" image of him/her.

My main lead is Caden Butcher. I’d say he is a young Ashton Kutcher. Longish messy hair, some scruff on the chin, but boyish.

5. If you could describe your book in a sentence, what would it be?

A young exorcist and his demon BFF scam the idle rich out of money by performing fake exorcisms until they get caught by a nasty demon who is hell bent on destroying everything good in their lives.


 Demons of the Rich and Famous (A Demon Whisperer Novel)
Supernatural possession is the new “disease” and teen exorcist Caden Butcher is the cure…

Having to take care of his father, Caden makes a decent income curing the new “disease”. He’s known as the whiz-kid exorcist to the stars, obtaining most of his work in Hollywood. What others don't know is the exorcisms are all staged with his demon BFF, Dan. Not everyone is happy with Caden’s star status though, including Remy Martin, a high ranking member of the International Order of Exorcists.

So when a real exorcism goes wrong and Caden lets the nasty demon inside a teen girl jump bodies, the crap hits the supernatural fan. Not only does the Order strip him of his license but Caden discovers the demon is one he knows and he’s hell bent on destroying Caden’s life, literally. Now with the help of his demon buddy, and Caden’s girlfriend Aspen Spencer, a necromancer in training, Caden must track down the rogue demon before it’s too late.
