Imowen Lodestone was inspired to write “Seasons of Pain” in large part because of his admiration for the creative genius of fellow writer H.P. Lovecraft. He has always wanted to write a novel dominated by supernatural characters that showed readers that these individuals, although endowed with special abilities and keen senses, still get scared and make assumptions. As a result of these failings, they sometimes make mistakes. His goal is to reveal to the reader how supernatural beings experience fear while telling an action-packed tale that does not stop with a scary monster but embraces all brands of fear.
