Posted by Ghosthunter Dan Norvell on September 8, 2011 at 9:35 AM Comments comments (2)

The Barron is the brother of the Duke Van Dregan.  He is only mentioned in the first book briefly a couple of times, but he is an intricate part of the entire story.  The Barron is jealous of his brother the Duke.  In the series you will find out why.

Character Bio 3 - Duke Van Dregan

Duke Van Dregan has been a vampire since Egyptian times.  He actually served 2 pharohs in Egyptian times.  The Duke has 2 "sons" that he has brought across to be vampires.  Martin, and Markus.  The Duke truly cares for his sons, and his views on many things will effect Markus profoundly, and thus will create the conflict that continues with Martin throughout Book 1.

Character Bio 2 - Markus Van Dregan

Markus Van Dregan is a Templar Knight that has been a vampire since 1119.  Markus is the person that MArtin refers to as "brother" in the snip-it on this blog.  Markus does not hate Martin, but due to his disillutioned view of their "Father" Duke Van Dregan, Markus believes that taking revenge on Martin will justify his issues with the Duke.  

Character Bio 1 - Martin Van Dregan

Martin is a Revolutionary War soldier.  He is brought across by the Duke Van Dregan as he is found by the Duke dying on a battlefield.  Martin is a true American, and he does take part in most of the conflicts that America has ever been part of.  The WWII and Vietnam chapters have been difficult but also fun to write.  It shows Martin as much more than a vampire.  The underlying struggle that Martin has to deal with on a daily basis bleeds through in these chapters especially.  Martin Van Dregan is the character with the closest ties to me.  Think of being trapped in the body of a boy for centuries, and think of how it might be to watch tragedy after tragedy and try to do the right thing, even though it may not always be possible.

The book is in editing now, and one question that the editor had for me is the chronology of the story.  I just want to explain that the first book will make sense, but it will all come together when you read all 4 of the books in order from 1 to 4 to complete the tie ins.  The first books questions will be answered in the other three.  I also started with Martin first.  I am actually writing these books in reverse order.  Trust me, it is just my way of telling my story.  Thanks for the support.

To Editing.....

I have started writing the second book in the Faith in the Darkness series.  The second book revolves around Markus.  Markus is a Templar Knight and his trip through time will be interesting to say the least.  Markus begins his life as a vampire holding tight to his deep faith as a Templar Knight, but as time passes, he will become more and more disillusioned with his faith, and his father, Duke Leonardo VanDregan.  The 2nd book that chronicles Markus is called, "Faith in the Darkess - End of Knight"  I hope to release these books one after the other.  Thanks for the support, and I hope to keep this series a favorite in the vampire genre for all of you.  Take care everyone.

About the books.

The books will be a series of 4 books in all.  The first book will revolve around Martin, and his struggles with the encounters he has through time.  He is a Revolutionary War soldier and is brought across by the Duke Van Dregan in 1776 while lying almost dead on a battle field.  The next book will chronicle the existence of Markus.  Markus is a Templar Knight from the times of the crusades.  The third book in the series will revolve around the Duke himself.  I will post more info as it becomes available.  The first book will most likely have a release in early Spring of 2012.  Looking forward to make this endeavor as fun for everyone as it has been for me.  Thanks.

The first book is about Martin.  Martin is a vampire that was brought across in 1776 while dying on a battlefield during our country's revolution.  I invite you to share Martin's adventure through time and history as he makes the best of his eternal existence.
