What was your overall inspiration to write in the very beginning of your career?
I’ve always been creative, whether it’s writing or drawing or design. I long wanted to begin writing fiction seriously and publish it. The world is ripe for that now that Amazon’s platforms and tools had matured somewhat. The stigma of self-publishing is rapidly disappearing. But still I hesitated. A close friend of mine made me promise I would begin writing in earnest but still I hesitated. She died a few months after that and I was devastated. Every writer and person of note that died haunted me. So I finally started writing. Of course, I don’t think my friend had considered that I might write smut, but knowing her I think she would’ve gotten a huge kick out of my stories.

How many vampire books do you currently have out with titles please?
Only two, although I’m currently writing a new one to be published this fall (2016). Both books can be read in order but one is a novel and part of a series while the other is a short story, a standalone. The novel is Enthralled: Futanari Vampires 1 and the short story is One Good Turn.

Do you have a favorite vampire book or movie/tv show?
A favorite? No. I enjoyed some of Anne Rice’s vampire books (but not the most recent one). Armand was actually my favorite character of hers. I still love Bram Stoker’s Dracula. If you’ve never read it, it’s actually quite frightening. For movies, I love the cheesetastic Underworld series but also the 2013 movie Only Lovers Left Alive with Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddlelston. I watched a few seasons of the Vampire Diaries before I got sick of how it seemed like the plot was just getting pulled out of someone’s ass after a while. That show killed me because Caroline was actually my favorite character. And I thought Aunt Jenna would have made the best vampire because she’d be so messed up about it, but no, they had to kill her.

If vampires were to really exist and you had the option to become immortal would you do so yes or no and why?
Are you shitting me? Hell yes. Immortality is reason enough.

What do you find to be the most challenging thing about being an author?
Making money. You don’t just write books anymore, you’re a one-person publishing company. You’re the editor and marketer, too. You can’t just be a good writer; it’s not enough. Personally, I’m fine with all this. It matches my skills and experience nicely. It’s not a quick or easy path but I’m on my way. Making money is not the reason I write. I write because now that I’ve begun, there’s no way this is ever getting shut off. But I don’t believe in all that starving artist suffer for your art bullshit. I believe in what the Joker said in The Dark Knight: “If you’re good at something, never do it for free.”

If you could co-write a brand new vampire book with anyone of you’re choosing who would it be and why?
I already have my vampire mythos and lore set up the way I like it and I’m going to keep running with it.

Are you currently working on any new projects that you would like to share with us?
I’m in the middle of writing Revenant: Futanari Vampires 2. The blood and sex-soaked erotic adventures of Ashlyn Kovalenko and Musette Vaillancourt, two futanari vampires, continues. Enthralled focused on Ashlyn as the main character as she found a grievously injured Musette and nursed her back to heath. Revenant focuses on Musette’s personal journey of coming to terms with herself. She’s created a bit of a monster in Ashlyn, and then Ashlyn, in turn, has created even more of a monster with her own fledgling. Musette has lost control of her “pet” (they had a Dominant/submissive relationship until Ashlyn grew too powerful) and she goes on a quest of sorts. She’s looking for an old myth, a type of vampire known as a revenant, hoping that if she can find him, he’ll help her. What she doesn’t know is if he’s real and if so, what price will he exact from her?

I’ve got several other erotica series that I’m writing as well: one is about futanari demons & angels and a demon hunter named Veronica Hudson in the year 1948, one is about a futanari girl falling in love with an octogirl, one is about a catgirl and her Dominant wizard master and which takes place in a steampunk setting, and I have two collaborations and other books planned down the road.

What is one of the biggest misconceptions that you think people have about authors in general?
That they always wanted to be one and that we don’t do “real” work. Especially if you’re self-published. That’s worse than being a hack.

If money was no object and you could travel to any place in the world for your dream vacation where would you go and what would you do?
If money were no object I wouldn’t need a vacation, but there are several places I’d love to see: Paris and the rest of France, London, and Japan.

Do you prefer online events or live events and what do you think the pros and cons of each are?
I wish I could tell you, but unfortunately, I haven’t yet participated in any live events. One of my goals is to be able to do that, so it’s only a matter of time.
