Onto the Interview!
Q: What got you into witting? A:To be perfectly honest with you I couldn’t find anything on the market that sparked my interest in the least bit. So I decided to write something that I was interested in. If it happened to take off then wonderful.
Q: What is your favorite book/series of yours? A: Well that’s honestly a toss-up. I have Aurora series which is shifter paranormal reverse harem that falls on the side of thriller/horror. Then I have Once Upon a Raven that is a Edgar Allan Poe inspired book that is the first of many to come from the Poe inspired series I intend to write.
Q: What got you into writing thriller reverse harem books? A: Reverse harem is fun all by itself. But I tend to like my horror movies thriller action movies things of that nature so I brought that love and passion into my stories.
Q: What is your favorite character from your books? A: I’d have to say that Alaric and Jayce are my favorites from Aurora series. And Kol is my favorite from the Raven.
Q: How did you come up with the characters from the series? A: It honestly wasn’t that difficult. Aurora is basically me with none of the human restraints upon her. I took some of my favorite qualities that I thought were embodied by a specific animal and gave them to each of the mates.
Q: What is the most difficult thing about writing? A: Honestly, It’s staying focused, and ignoring those that decide to nick pick and rip a book apart instead of enjoying it for what it is..
Q: About writing reverse harem? A: That’s actually a funny answer It’s more like when you have intimate moments with more than one mate in a scene. Keeping track of where all the limbs and appendages are and making sure that nothing is misplaced.
Q: Where do you get your inspiration to write supernatural/shifter books? A: As i said earlier I absolutely love horror movies. I grew up watching some of the old favorite black and white movies all the way up to current day.
Q: Any recommendations for someone looking to get into writing? A: Definitely find a good editor and proofreader for your novel. Do not trust and editing program to handle your document the same as a human would. A program cannot and will not ever understand how an emotion needs to be portrayed.
Q: What is your favorite writing spot? A: Usually I’m sitting on my bed. or or I’m going for a long walk and using my dictation program.
Q: What is your favorite vacation spot? A: I’m not a big fan of being around large groups of people. So anywhere that I can isolate and just enjoy myself is perfect vacation spot for me.
Q: What is your favorite food? A: I love extremely rare steak. I love sushi and sashimi. I love all sorts of Japanese and Indian cuisine. And I also enjoy cooking traditional German or Italian dishes.
Q: What is coming next from you? A:There’s actually a lot on the table currently. Just finished up book one of Hybrid Royals. Working on book five of Aurora’s series Welcome Home Little Wolf. After that I am probably going to be working on Jayce’s daughters series and my Bear Claw Ranch series that will feature two of Dimitri’s daughters and Ellis. I also have a Valkyrie series slated for 2021. There’s also a reverse harem vampire novel that I have outlined. There’s also going to be a three book series with Klaus’s daughter that will be reverse harem. There’s several other things that are in the works in the background The hybrid royal series is going to be four books when it’s completed and then there’s another four book series that is on the back burner currently.
