Interview Roulette: Rebecca Buchanan

It’s Rebecca Buchanan’s turn today!

  1. If you could be any other living person for a single day, who would you be?

Ooohhhh. That’s a toss up between Cleopatra VII and Hypatia of Alexandria. If I could be Cleopatra, I would make sure that Egypt did not fall to Rome. If I could be Hypatia, I would pack up the entire Library and ship it off someplace safe — before it was lost to history.

  1. Shopping—love it or leave it?

If it’s books, love it. Everything else, leave it. I even hate grocery shopping. I put off shopping for clothing and shoes until it is absolutely necessary.

  1. What were your favorite childhood books?

Too many to name! But just a few: “Augustus Caesar’s World” by Genevieve Foster; “Cinderella”  by John Fowles and Sheilah Beckett; “The Complete Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm”; “d’Aulaire’s Book of Greek Myths” by the d’Aulaires; the “Encyclopedia Brown” books by Donald Sobol; “The Epic of Alexandra” by Dorothy Dayton; “His Majesty, Queen Hatshepsut” by Dorothy Carter; “The Peacock King and Other Stories” by Madame Marie d’Aulnoy; “The Phantom Tollbooth” by Norton Juster; “Pickle Chiffon Pie” by Jolly Roger Bradfield; “The Prince of the Dolomites” by Tomie de Paola; “Proud Knight, Fair Lady” by Naomi Lewis; “Witch Poems” by Jane Yolen and Daisy Wallace. The various fairy tales put out by Mercer Mayer and Marianna Mayer. Oh, and any Uncle Scrooge comic by Don Rosa.

  1. If you could be granted instant virtuosity on a musical instrument you don’t now play, which one would it be, and why?

The lyre. Many of the ancient Greek poems which we now (silently) read in books were once recited aloud and accompanied by a lyre. I would love to know what they originally sounded like, and be able to recreate that myself.

  1. One of your characters writes a poem to his beloved.

Commander Rhen Genesius to Madlen Abarron: I don’t write poetry, so, after we close these inter-dimensional portals and kill off the last of the monsters, how about we go back to my place, have lots of wild sex, and then eat ice cream in bed. Sound good? Good. Let’s go.


Book blurb:

Myths, moons, and mayhem make the perfect threesome—and so do the men in this paranormal gay ménage and erotic romance 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.
