1. What made you write this book?ENDANGERED was a book I wrote for the growing vampire/werewolf market several years back. As it turns out, the hero needed something more than what I as an author could give him over the years until I finally figured out what that was. You'll have to read the series to learn what though!2. Do you now frequently write about 'Vampires, Werewolves' as well as 'Shape Shifters' or do you like to mix it up a bit?I've written vampires and wolves, one of my agents has a story involving Pumas and witches, and I've written about faeries too.3. Have you ever written erotica without 'Mythical Creatures' in it?Erotica and erotic romance, yes. I have a lot of contemporary romance titles.4. Out of ALL of your own work, do you have a favorite Character, if so~ who would it be?I've been saying Joséf from Endangered because his story rings true to how I've felt. Need to do good in the world, but alas, love isn't for me. Considering events of late, I'd be hard pressed to say if I still held that belief or not but he's a rough character who uses any means necessary to get the job done.5. Who is your favorite Author of ALL the Authors in the World?Probably JR Ward right now. Even though the head hopping shit irritates me, her stories pull you in and make you invest yourself in the characters and the world.6. Do you read 'Erotic Novels' yourself, and I don't mean, just your own work? (If so~ whom do read and prefer?)Yup. The usual suspects. JR Ward, Lora Leigh, Christine Feehan, Laurel K. Hamilton, Christina Dodd, every now and then you'll find me with a historical romance in my hands by Julie Templeton.7. What made you write a Novel with 'Vampires' in it? We're you trying to 'Follow the crowd' per se?First off, the crowd follows me. *ahem* Second, it was something I wanted to do for years actually, write about the Goth, the undead, the sensuality, the darkness.8. When writing, sometimes I note your work to be deep, dark, and heart felt. Is this some of your one 'persona?'Always. It's most of it actually. What you're missing is my legendary "artistic" temper tantrums I'm trying hard not to let out anymore, or my rage.9. When writing 'sexual scenes' have you ever done, or experienced what you have written?Quite a bit yeah. Especially with recent experiences mimicked by a story I wrote involving a pretty writer fan and Fiji.10. Do you oft get turned on, as you are writing your sexual scenes?Yeah it happens.11. Other than your writing, what do you use as an 'out?' Meaning: a way to vent?Sadly I really don't have any means of venting other than cigars and alcohol. I tend to not overdo it anymore on either front because of health reasons and the fact that I prefer relaxation rather than getting all stressed out.12. Does your writing often reflect your mood?It can and does. I'm found often in my work even when I mean not to insert myself.13. Were you in a dark place when you wrote this manuscript? If not, how did you manage to make 'this' book seem & 'sound' so much differently, compared to the last book I read of yours? What IS your secret?I've said before my books are that good and I'm that talented an author and that's what it boils down to. People think you can simply write a story and then bam, it's good but if the story doesn't make you feel something, or if it doesn't move you, then it's not complete. I was in a period of change when I wrote ENDANGERED, whereas the book you first reviewed, Burning for Derrick was a much lighter story because my world was better then, and the agent of awesome told me to lighten the hell up. There is no secret, you simply cut your heart open and pour it over the pages.14. Do you have more books in the works?
I do. I'm in the middle of starting a romantic suspense, Endangered has a sequel (it's actually a series. The tag line is: A small group of unlikely heroes faces an entire Criminal Organization for the fate of the world while discovering true love.) Plus I have my Covenant of Wolves series we're in the middle of reworking slightly. I have tons of material for years, practically. All in romance, of course.15.
