Today’s guest is the fabulous erotic author, Devyn Quinn!
Yesterday I spotlighted Devyn’s books and today here’s an interview…
Please tell us about your books.
I debuted as a Kensington Books author with Flesh and the Devil in March 2007, a dark vampire/erotic novel. Though I write in both the contemporary and gothic genres, lately my attention has turned to very dark erotica. Most of my full length novels focus on the struggle of the ordinary person to accept extraordinary happenings in their lives-usually from a supernatural source. It is why I have recently tagged me writing “goth-erotica” and where I will focus my attention on my next single title releases with Kensington’s Aphrodisia line, including my Kith & Kynn books, Sins of the Flesh (Oct 07) and Sins of the Night (March 08) and Embracing Midnight (Nov 08).
What inspired the story or stories?
I enjoy telling dark tales, LOL. Inspiration just hits out of the blue. One moment my mind is empty and the next it is brimming with characters who have stories to tell.
Which of your characters would you like to switch places with? For how long? What would you do?
Oh, I would love to switch with Morgan Saint-Evanston, the immortal Irish assassin of the Keepers series. I’d do it for freaking ever and I would have an ever-loving blast having his magical powers and slaying the baddies.<G>
What is your favorite part of being a writer? Least favorite?
My favorite part of being a writer is hearing from people who have read and enjoyed my books. The least favorite is starting a new book.
What would you like to tell aspiring writers?
This is not a business for the faint of heart. You have to have grit and determination to make the cut. A little talent helps, LOL.
Who has inspired you as a writer?
I draw my inspiration for many places, but can’t pin it down to a single source.
What do you like to read?
I mostly enjoy history and biographies. I tend not to read much fiction because I write it! When I do read fiction, I love Kate Douglas’s Wolf Tales. Her series is smashingly original.
What is your favorite way to relax?
Renting a few movies and settling back with a glass of wine and my pets!
Describe yourself in 3 words.
Intense, demanding, capable.
If you had a time capsule to be opened 50 years in the future, what would you put in it?
All my books, LOL
What is next for you?
I just finished a novella, Personal Possessions, for the Dangerous Ties anthology that will be out in April 09. I’m about to do a novella for the Sexy Beast 6 anthology with Kate Douglas, Heart of the Wildcat. Then I have three more single titles contracted, including the first book of a new series and a follow up to Flesh and the Devil, as well as a tie-in single title to my Sexy Beast novella.
Thank you, Devyn, for that wonderful interview!
