Tainted Child was inspired by my relationships and acquaintances and came out of my own short stories. Writing it was my way of releasing misdirected energies and turning them into something positive.

Belladona always knew of her heritage. She has spent her entire life fighting. But when a long lost friend returns after years of solitude, Belladonna has no choice but to go on the run.
Sullivan’s story chronicles how the people who survived the demolition of the modern world live their lives now that they are surrounded by conflict, destruction and rebellion on a daily basis. Set in a supernatural world, Tainted Child focuses on the practicality of everyday people and how everyone is influenced by their past, no matter how hard they try to avoid it.
“Tainted Child was inspired by my relationships and acquaintances and came out of my own short stories,” said Sullivan. “Writing it was my way of releasing misdirected energies and turning them into something positive.”
In Tainted Child, Sullivan provides a different take on the supernatural thriller genre and discusses real-world topics such as politics, race, war, unity, justice and religion. Sullivan’s book contains relatable characters and tackles real-world issues.
