Interview Roulette: Morgan Elektra

Today Morgan Elektra takes a spin!

 

  1. If you could choose anyone on the planet to narrate an audio version of your latest book, who would it be?

 

ME: James Marsters. Aside from the fact that I loved him as Spike in Buffy, but his reading of the Harry Dresden books is amazing. Plus, his voice is so sexy!

 

  1. What’s the longest road trip you’ve been on?

 

ME: Once, I flew out to Colorado to drive back home to New York with a friend who didn’t want to make the trip alone. There is a lot of beautiful, empty country out there. Driving through it is great for percolating ideas.

 

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

ME: Andras (from my novella A Kiss of Brimstone) would get Ben some sort of blade. A knife forged by angels, perhaps. Something special that would help keep him safe. If we’re talking about Beau, Jackson, and Rafe from The Endless Knot–I can see Beau getting his paramours small, meaningful gifts that they wouldn’t think to get for themselves.

  1. Which house did the sorting hat put you in?

ME: Slytherin for life.

  1. One of your characters has an allergy that’s proved problematic. Tell us about it.

ME: I write a lot of vampires and the idea of one being allergic to a particular blood type is interesting to me. Would transfusion reactions like fever or dizziness be less significant or more deadly? How would they know who was safe to feed on? I think I would write different blood types perhaps having different tastes. Then they could give a first, testing bite to see if the donor is a match. It could serve dual purpose. An initial bite to verify blood type and introduce something aphrodisiac/anesthetic into the bloodstream.

  1. One of your characters has a guilty favorite TV show. Tell us about it.

ME: Jared Atherton (a proper and reserved Alpha in my WIP Protecting His Pack) loves reality TV. Competition shows like Master Chef and Project Runway. He watches them on his laptop when he’s alone. Very few people are aware of this predilection.

  1. Who are your favorite visual artists and why?

ME: There’s an artist named Lina Iris Viktor ( http://www.linaviktor.com/about/) whose work I absolutely adore. I read an article about female artists of color from last year that she was mentioned in and her painting stunned me. She manages to convey so much with color and shape. I could stare at one of her paintings for hours.

I’m also a long-time fan of Basil Gogos, who just recently passed away. As a horror fan I grew up with his work on magazine covers and thoroughly enjoy the depth he gives his portraits, especially.

And I feel like I’d be a little remiss here if I didn’t mention Bob Ross. I spent hours as a kid watching his show, listening to his soothing voice, and trying to emulate him. (Badly, I might add.) I don’t know if any of his paintings will ever hang in the Louvre, but any time I see one there is such a sense of peace about it for me.

 

Book blurb:

Myths, moons, and mayhem make the perfect threesome—and so do the men in this anthology.

Enjoy nine erotic stories of paranormal ménages a trois fueled by lust and magic, where mystical forces collide with the everyday world and even monsters have their own demons to conquer.

A werewolf gets a lust-fueled lesson on fitting in with the pack, a professor unlocks ancient secrets and two men’s hearts, and a pair of supernaturals find themselves at the erotic mercy of a remarkable human. Ghosts, fairies, aliens, and mere mortals test the boundaries of their desires, creating magic of their own.

Penned by favorite authors such as Rob Rosen and Clare London, as well as by newcomers to the genre, Myths, Moons, and Mayhem is an eclectic mix of paranormal lust and polymythic beings that will spark your fantasies and fuel your bonfires.

Author bio:

Born in the artists’ community of Woodstock, NY, Morgan Elektra discovered her passion for writing at a young age, penning stories of witches, vampires, and monsters at the dining room table. After years working day jobs and moonlighting as a reviewer for popular horror website Dread Central, Morgan left the comfort of an office to follow her dreams of writing fiction. She spent the early twenty-teens as a freelance ghostwriter of erotica, but has now put aside the masks to write under her own name.

She currently lives near Savannah, GA with her husband, their cat Harlequin, and—if the rumours are to be believed (and she sincerely hopes they are)—an awful lot of ghosts.
