Since I can remember my father has been involved in martial arts. He started when he was in the Air Force and took Tae Kwon Do where he became a second degree black belt. He later became very involved in Kick Boxing and then started to learn other styles where he eventually landed into Reality Based Street Fighting.
So through those years I became one of his students that was lucky enough to be experimented on over the years in which I learned different fighting styles. With those experiences I simply translated them into the fighting scenes of The Last Enchantress. Obviously some of the scenes are embellished based on the fact that characters have super natural abilities.
Writing the fighting scenes was one of my favorite parts of the book feeling it helped the story evolve and bring the characters alive.
Below is one of Judith’s favorite fight scenes:
Kate had made a terrible mistake thinking that she could take me on. But I had noticed that, like her father, arrogance ran deep within those unloving veins.
I rushed forward, and Kate’s eyes blazed with rage. This was good. She was allowing her emotions to control her moves. Battles were often lost because of emotions and not due to a better strategy. I used some of my magic to make a picture fall, causing Kate to look. I then jumped and landed a flying side-kick right into her chest. It had been some time since I had used my martial arts skills, but it was time to shake off the dust and get this done. Kate slammed into the back wall, screaming like a wild boar without control. She picked up a couple of pieces of the marble floor. Looking at me, she crushed them into dust. I guessed she was sending me a very clear message of how she really did not like me.
Well, the feeling was mutual. As she stood, I moved one of the chairs nearby with my energy and cast it at her. I knew this would do nothing accept annoy her, but I wanted her to come at me carelessly. This would give me the upper hand. She crushed the chair and lunged at me.
