– Thanks Danielle, it’s very kind of you to interview me and brave I might add.
Simon, what is it about the paranormal that fascinates you so much?
-The genre lets the author leave this boring plane and invent wonderful new worlds filled with inspiration, shape-shifters, vampires, mystical creatures such as Bigfoot, terror, love, eroticism that can go beyond the norm. Anything and everything goes when immersed in a paranormal existence. Why write a love scene with a couple having sex when that same couple could be ancient vampires and their deep love transports them through time, making love as famous characters in our past?
Please tell us about your latest release.
-Blood of the Eternal Moon is primarily set in an asylum outside Paris 1925. It is extremely erotic, terrifying in its strong point-of-view and horrific in its depiction of insanity. A young woman wakes up with no memory to find she is trapped in an asylum, but slowly her fear releases her Eternal Vampire side which fights monstrous demons lurking in the shadows of deranged minds lusting for her pure blood. All she has to protect her from Lucien and his Blood Cult is a young doctor treating her amnesia and if Lucien takes her blood, the world will return to the Dark Ages.
What inspired you to write this book?
-My own fight with demons of depression after an accident left me disabled and jobless forced me to come to terms and use writing to step out of my misery and into fantasy worlds of my own making. This book is about my struggle, but don’t worry Danielle, your neck is safe for now.
LOL. You slay me, Simon. :)
Now, back to the interview. Do you have a special formula for creating characters' names? - Do you try to match a name with a certain meaning to attributes of the character or do you search for names popular in certain time periods or regions?
-I hope the names of my characters fit their modus operandi – Eternal is as delicate as a rose, vulnerable as a child and yet she has a hidden strength nurtured by countless centuries. Lucien is evil personified, cruel with the whip which will please the fetishists and BDSM lovers but most of all a lost little boy begging to be loved. Edouard is Eternal’s true love, a doctor sworn to do no harm and yet has the guts to leave all that behind to be with her.
Do you have any weird writing quirks or rituals?
Does being stuck in the kitchen count as weird, it certainly is disruptive but a necessity in a small house? I wear blue when writing for I find it soothing and perhaps is my lucky color.
Other than writing, what are some of your interests or hobbies?
I love strolling on our Jurassic beach searching for fossils or looking for shells to adorn our electric fire. There isn’t much space in the house for normal ornaments, just fossils.
What can readers expect next from you?
My next two releases will by Hot In Bigelow a very erotic and stupid story of sex-mad aliens trapped on Earth and their only means of escape is three amigos with not one brain cell between them. SS-Steppenwolf is a paranormal history of WWII seen through the eyes of twin brothers torn apart by the Nazi state. It’s a Raiders of the Lost Ark meets American Werewolf.
Sounds great! I for one can't wait to read them. :) Thanks for coming on the blog.
About the Book:
A young woman on the cusp of her immortality fights a desperate battle to attain her rightful place as an Eternal, trapped in an asylum.
But time is against her for the evil hybrid vampire, Lucien, has laid claim to her birthright and if he succeeds the world will descend into chaos.
Eternal watched Ellise and for the first time she let go her inhibitions and allowed the artist to create her naked glory on canvas.
Each brushstroke was a tender caress upon her quivering flesh. Then the whip cracked and all hell descended.
A lurid tale of blood lust, decadence and eroticism set in Paris 1925 where a young woman is nearing her Eternal Vampire state. To accomplish this she must escape the smothering grasp of a cruel hybrid vampire, Lucien, who is addicted to her pure blood. A fleeting chance reveals itself but he follows her scent and massacres all who dare protect his supply of Eternal blood.
She awakens in a tiny room, trapped and defenseless with amnesia. Something buried deep within her yearns to be set free by the next full moon – her Eternal Birthday. Her true self, Eternal, emerges in brief flashes of awareness to protect her from the demonic horrors of this terrifying asylum.
Desperate, she forges an alliance with her true love, Edouard, a handsome young doctor treating her. Lucien’s evil persona draws closer by the second. With little time remaining, Edouard must unravel Eternal’s vampiric past and make good their escape.
With the Eternal Hour at hand and the forces of darkness converging, Edouard and Eternal must fight to rid the world of this evil. If they lose, Lucien will reign supreme and unleash the dogs of war and chaos upon the world. Let the final battle begin.
