Background

Sabrina was born to fallen angel Lucifer Morningstar and mortal Diana Spellman, however her legal father is Diana’s husband High Priest witch Edward Spellman. Diana and Edward had trouble conceiving a child and went to the Dark Lord for help, Diana soon became pregnant but the Dark Lord was somehow able to impregnate her with his child instead of Edward’s, who was believed by all to be Sabrina’s biological father. Three days after her birth, Diana had Sabrina given a Holy Baptism with her aunt, Hilda Spellman, as a witness. A day later, Edward had signed Sabrina’s name into the Book of the Beast with her other aunt, Zelda Spellman, as a witness. Not long after, Sabrina’s parents would die in a plane crash, leaving her in the care of Hilda and Zelda, though Diana’s remaining family apparently tried, unsuccessfully, to obtain custody of Sabrina.

Having grown up in the world of mortals, Sabrina is the polar opposite of pure-blood witches in numerous ways. She has a very strong moral compass and does not look down on mortals as inferior or on familiars for that matter. Her family and friends are by far the most important to her as well as her fierce sense of independence and belief in freedom of choice, traits which led her to reject the teachings of the Church of Night. She is quick to question witch traditions and will work tirelessly to find ways around the more barbaric practices.

Sabrina is an uncommonly kind, thoughtful, caring, compassionate and spirited person, an unwaveringly loyal friend and a loving girlfriend. She is quite popular in mortal school but generally slighted in magic school. An ardent feminist who believes in the advancement of women and girls in society, she has no qualms over confronting anyone who demeans her female friends or indeed any female student. She lives daily with guilt over not being able to tell her friends about her true nature but has learned to cope with it. Her dedication to her friends and to an extent a mild form of arrogance has led her to make bad and even reckless decisions that have unfortunately cost her greatly.

Sabrina loves her family very much and is very close to her aunts and her cousin. She is doted on by Hilda and often butts heads with Zelda over witch matters and Zelda’s zealotry but ultimately the two are still close. She is quick to anger if her parents or family, in general, are insulted as well as her half-breed status.

Sabrina possesses incredibly strong willpower and sense of self, enabling her to resist psychological torture and pain effectively as was seen during her Harrowing by the Sisters when she repeatedly withstood their attempts to break her.

Nearing the promised land

kiernan_shipkaI’m moving closer and closer to the end point for the current novel and it’s at this stage that I’m always bursting at the seams to go ahead and type, “The End.” I’m anxious to think about what’s next and the thrill of the current WIP has simply evaporated. I’ve lived with it for too long.

I was hoping that Assistance Unlimited: The Silver Age Volume One would be out by now… not sure what’s holding it up at Pro Se but I’m sure there’s a good excuse. I’m thinking I might step away from Lazarus Gray until they catch up on the backlog – soon, they’ll have volumes 8-12, plus the Lazarus/Nightveil crossover book.

I’ve begun watching The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and I’m really enjoying it. Same for My Hero Academia, which was introduced to me by my son. There’s so much great television out there! A lot of it really inspires me and I just wish I had the time to do all the stories that I have in my head. I know, it’s the writer’s lament…
