Interview with Madhuri Blaylock for The Girl (Book 1 in The Sanctum Series)

Come and join me as I talk with author Madhuri Blaylock about Book 1 in The Sanctum Series The Girl on Stories From Unknown Authors at 1pm EST today.


The Sanctum, an all-powerful governing body founded by ten families, entrusted to maintain the peace amongst Magicals and ensure the ignorance of humans, has been corrupted by greed and savagery for generations, but is all Wyatt Clayworth has ever known. A descendant of one of the Founding Families and Class A Warrior, Wyatt has always believed in the ways of The Sanctum, having grown up in the system and thrived under their leadership. A golden boy, renowned for his prowess and skill in battle, Wyatt has never questioned a mission or kill order until the night he crosses paths with a brutally injured and mysterious girl. Scouring Central Park with his best friend and fellow Class A Warrior, Ryker Morrison, for the hybrid demon prophesied to bring an end to The Sanctum and destroy the world for Magicals and humans alike, Wyatt instead finds Dev and his whole life turns upside down. Told he was hunting a killing machine, hellbent on wreaking havoc and destruction upon all it encounters, Wyatt instead sees nothing more than a broken girl with haunted eyes and a bit of a death wish. All Dev wants is for Wyatt to either kill her or leave her alone. When he refuses to do either, she finds herself being pulled into his life while being hunted by warriors everywhere she turns. Drawn to one another for reasons they cannot begin to explain to themselves, much less anyone else, Wyatt is determined to protect Dev and help her realize her mission to avenge the deaths of her family at the hands of The Sanctum. His abdication of his duties and his outright rejection of his responsibilities to The Sanctum create a maelstrom of events beyond anyone’s imagination.

This novel is filled with adventure as it flows steadily towards the revelation of The Girl and her amazing powers. Readers are going to love how the story sucks them in, making them want to know more about Wyatt and Dev and their journey together for which they are forever bonded. The characters are unique as they are beautiful. Though at times the characters seem a little too perfect, they are fun in talents and personality. 

With devoted friends and family, Dev and Wyatt go on an incredible journey, yet not realizing the bigger picture they both are apart of. Will their bond last? Readers will definitely want to find out in this 400 page novel. 

I'm that Indian girl everyone thinks is Black...or Spanish...or Black and Spanish. I'm from down South, have lived in the New York City area for more than twenty years, and am proof that you can take the girl out of the South, but you can't take the South out of the girl. 

I love Old Scout bourbon, french fries, tattoos, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, my mom's Indian food, Friday Night Lights, coffee, and Martha's Vineyard. I can wiggle my ears, flare my nostrils, and curl my tongue.

I am an introvert who can fool people into thinking I am an extrovert, all the while wishing I was home alone, not having to speak to a soul, lost in a fantastical world of my own creation. 

As the great Charles Bukowski said, I write because it comes bursting out of me. I cannot stop it, nor do I want to. 

I do other things to pay the bills.
