Interview Roulette: Jenn Burke

Today’s player is Jenn Burke!

  1. One of your characters is running for political office. Who is it and what’s the office?

That would be Zed—Zander Anatolius—from the Chaos Station series. He’s already got the experience of being the emissary and mouthpiece for the Guardians, the mysterious omnipotent race that no one knows anything about. He’d never seek out a political position, but if he thought there was a need for him to step up and be president or ambassador or whatever—yeah, he’d totally do it. Grumbling the whole time, but he’d do it.

2. Shopping—love it or leave it?

It depends on my mood! I’m not a fan of Christmastime shopping in malls—too many people! But shopping for new summertime clothes? Especially pretty dresses? Yes, I’m all over that!

3. Describe one time someone surprised you.

When my dad read my first book! Her Sexy Sentinel is a paranormal romance, and he is so not a romance reader. But he read it, and he enjoyed it! Except he didn’t like the sexual tension. He asked, “Why don’t they just DO IT?”

4. Warm weather or cold?

Cold. Which is good, because Canadian.

5. One of the characters in your latest book buys a birthday present for another. What is it?

Zed would buy Felix anything his heart desired, and if he had free rein…I could see him buying Felix an old clunker of a ship for Felix to tinker with and fix up.

6. What did you have for lunch yesterday?

Uh…McDonald’s. Which isn’t a regular thing! But I was caught up working on my website and missed lunch, so I grabbed something on the way back from the dog park in the afternoon.

7. What is your most dreaded household chore? Your favorite?

Wait…people have favourite household chores? Can they come over here and work on my place? LOL.

Most dreaded…cleaning the kitchen. I hate it.

My favourite—and keep in mind I’m using that term very loosely—is laundry. Unless washing the car counts, then we’ll go with that.

Book blurb:

Phase Shift (Book Five of the Chaos Station Series)

Zander and Felix’s relationship has always pushed boundaries—personal and professional alike—but their love and commitment is stronger than ever. So strong that Zander’s ready to ask commitment-shy Felix the question of a lifetime when he’s interrupted. The Chaos is being hacked, and crucial, top secret information about the project that created Zander—and his fellow super soldiers—has been leaked.

Neither man could have expected the enormity of what’s discovered at the end of the data trail:  an entire colony of super soldiers run by the very doctor who changed Zander’s life forever. And now she needs them both—Zander to train her new crop of soldiers, and Felix’s new crystalline arm to stabilize their body chemistry.

With help from the unlikeliest of allies, Zander, Felix and the Chaos crew must destroy the project and all its ill-gotten information. But when the team is split up and Felix is MIA after a dangerous run, galactic disaster is a very real possibility…and Zander may have missed his chance to ask for forever.
