Interview Roulette: Posy Roberts

Today’s interview roulette player is Posy Roberts!

    1. What is your favorite footwear? Barefoot. If I can avoid shoes, I do. When I’m forced to wear shoes, all I wear anymore are Danskos.
    2. If you had to spend a week snowed in at a mountain cabin with one of your characters, who would you choose and why? Just one character? Wow! You ask hard questions. Let’s see. For conversation and knowledge gathering, I think I’d liked to be snowed in with Leo from my Naked Organics series. He’s crazy smart and a founder of a commune he built from the ground up. With what he knows about gardening, sustainable energy, and cooking alone, I could easily talk to him for a week, not to mention his day job as a sex therapist. I might need more than a week, to be honest.
    3. Which of your characters would send you screaming out into the blizzard before the week was up? I’m going to choose a kid for this one. Finn, the son of Kevin and stepson of Hugo in my North Star trilogy. He’s a hyper kid, and I’m not sure I could handle that much energy in a small space for a week. He’s curious and wide-eyed and adorable, but I’d need a break, and more than what a night’s sleep or a nap could provide.
    4. Describe a traumatic weather-related experience you’ve had. I’ve had several. Blizzards, tornados, wicked thunderstorms, floods. I’m fascinated by weather, so I’m usually the one standing by windows watching when I should be seeking shelter. I was most scared when I was driving in a blizzard and there was nowhere to turn off. It was too dangerous to pull over on the side of the road because of whiteout conditions: a snowplow would destroy your car before it saw you. And every time a car passes you, you are driving blind. When driving in such rural areas where towns are miles and miles apart, you just have to keep driving despite barely seeing the road. Add glare ice to the mix, and it’s even scarier. While driving home from college on I-29, which in North Dakota is about the flattest road you can get, most traffic was going at a safe speed. Some jackoff flew passed me on a slight curve in the road, and I just shook my head because I knew how icy it was. Sure enough, the guy couldn’t turn on the ice and his car kept going straight, which meant driving right off the road. That was 25 minutes into my 5-hour drive. Thankfully it got better once I changed highways.
    5. Describe a memorable dream—or nightmare! I rarely recall dreams anymore, but as a child I had a recurring one. It started not long after my dad died, so I was about six. I dreamed the house was on fire and I was the only one who got out alive. Everyone else died and I was left alone. Not surprising since I’d lost my father and my grandmother the year prior, but the dreams continued for years. I occasionally have dreams that are similar, but now instead of house fires, I lose everyone in car crashes or from some travel accident.
    6. What is your worst phobia? As you can likely guess, fire. In fact, I rearranged part of my kitchen this weekend because I was afraid of flammable objects being too close to my cooktop. I will never live in a house with a gas stove. Yet I’m okay with fires in fire pits and fireplaces. So explain that.
    7. What is the oddest thing on your music playlist? It’s not on a playlist of mine, but it’s the oddest thing I’ve listened to in the last few weeks (EVER!), and I blame my daughter, one hundred percent! There’s this thing call ASMR, which stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. It’s that feeling of tingles/static that starts at the top of you head and slides down your back and goes all the way to your fingertips, bringing about a state of low-grade euphoria. Well, there are audio and video recordings made to induce this response, and my teen found them on YouTube, felt I needed to experience this, and set me up! Yes, she set me up! Haha. Her two faves are Sand in the Ear and Playdough. Wear headphones/earbuds if you want the real experiences. You can feel free to blame my kid if you have an eargasm. Apparently Bob Ross (you know the be-permed painter of PBS fame?) induced ASMR with his “happy little tree” commentary. So yeah, odd, to say the least.

Book blurb:

Interview Roulette: Grace Duncan

Today’s Interview Roulette player is Grace Duncan!

  1. What is your favorite appliance? Hmm. It used to be the coffee maker but I’ve since started using a French press. So, I’ll have to go with the water cooler (does that count? It does now. :P) because it gives me immediate hot water… to make my coffee with.
  2. A genie pops up and offers to grant you one talent. What do you choose and why? Marketing. I have a talent for writing (I swear, I’m NOT conceited, I’m just trying to remind myself I do already know how to write.). I need a talent for getting it out there to the right readers and to enough readers to make enough to live on. J
  3. If you were to become a street performer, what would you do to entertain people and earn some money? Probably sing. I can actually carry a decent tune, even without background music. I’m no Shira Anthony, not by a long shot, but I could sing well enough to earn a cup of coffee.
  4. Cats or dogs? Discuss. Mmm. I’m going to go with dogs because they think I’m the god, not the other way around. 😉
  5. You’re on a ship with Mark Twain, Albert Einstein, Catherine the Great, David Bowie, Billie Holiday, and Gengis Khan. But oh no! The ship is sinking and the lifeboat only holds four people. You get to decide—who gets on that lifeboat? Mark Twain, Albert Einstein, David Bowie and Gengis Khan. In that one boat, we have brilliance for literature, science, music and warfare. I’d call that a win.
  6. What is your superpower? Putting myself down. No, really, I’m epic at it. Okay, seriously, if It’s something I want to have, it’d be, I think, super speed so I could get everything done quickly. Imagine how many books I could write with that….
  7. You’ve been invited to a party being held by your boss. Which of your characters will you take with you as your guest? Well, I’m my own boss, so I would just invite everyone and watch the mayhem. (Especially with Teman and Nadir naked!) The pleasure slaves with the shifters with the BDSM couples. That would be SO fun to watch. If I make up a boss, like some of those I used to have and assume I want to keep my job after the fact, I’d probably consider Mal and Kyle (from Beautiful boy, since Kyle can do small talk in his sleep), Braden and Rafe (What About Now), and Patrick and Chance (No Sacrifice). Those would make a good, but still interesting combination (and not likely freak anyone out… too much).


Book blurb:

Liam Scott is sick. That’s not supposed to be possible. As a wolf shifter, he’s supposed to be able to heal. The omega gene he was born with means he’s capable of carrying shifter young and Liam is worried that whatever is wrong will mean his one-day hope of having pups will be dashed. But despite the fears keeping him away from the doctor until now, he knows he needs to go.

It turns out the sickness is temporary, but the treatment causes a whole other problem.

Mason’s alpha gene means he’s one of very few wolves who can impregnate an omega male. For two years, he’d been watching Liam, but things kept getting in the way. When Liam shows up in heat, Mason recognizes the opportunity he needs and doesn’t hesitate make to Liam his mate and the father of his pups.


But Liam has old wounds and fears to work through which the pregnancy is only making worse, and Mason isn’t sure how to get past them to show he’s serious about making a life together as loving mates. It’s not until a female wolf decides Mason should be hers that Liam makes his biggest worry known—and Mason can finally put the fears to rest.

Interview Roulette: CJane Elliott

Welcome to today’s game of Interview Roulette, starring CJane Elliott!

  1. You’re walking down the street when a spaceship lands in front of you and a half dozen aliens pile out. What do you do? First I look around to make sure this isn’t a movie being filmed that I wasn’t aware of. Then I bow politely, hoping that bowing is some universal symbol and not an egregious insult in alien speak. Then I stand and wait for my fate to show itself.
  2. Are you a nerd and/or a geek? Provide evidence to support your answer. I’m more of a nerd. I was a good student who sat in the front row and liked to study. Being a nerd, I Googled nerd vs geek to make sure I got this answer right. And what Urban Dictionary says about nerds being shy and not friends with a lot of people was also true about me in high school.
  3. Which (living) celebrity would you most want to have dinner with? Adam Lambert. Many know my obsession with him (which is more geek-like than nerd). He’s not only insanely talented but seems like a fun person to hang out with, so I’m sure I’d have a fabulous time.
  4. When it comes to travel, do you prefer to plan everything or play it by ear? I like to nail down transportation and lodging ahead of time, but beyond that I don’t like to plan too many activities. It’s more fun to see what happens. My sister and I are going on a road trip from Orlando to Key West after the Dreamspinner Press Author Conference in March. We have nothing in particular planned and I can’t wait!
  5. One of your characters is running for political office. Who is it and what’s the office? Cleo Park from Serpentine Walls. She’s a kick-ass Asian-American gal who embodies all the qualities of strong women who resist and persist. She would make a great Congresswoman from Virginia.
  6. If you had to live in a movie, TV show, or book, which would you choose and why? This is hard to answer. Right now I want to escape from the reality of what is happening in our country so I want to live in something rosy and optimistic, like Sesame Street.
  7. What is your favorite footwear? If I could get away with bare feet all the time, I would. All I wear around the house these days are slipper-socks. For actual shoes, I prefer flats, the more comfortable the better.

Jonathan Vallen has never felt good enough. A gentle musician who loves to garden, he’s woefully unsuited to running Vallen Industries, the family business. When his father hires a hotshot executive, Marco Pellegrini, to save the company, Jonathan moves away and leaves his humiliation behind. A year later and forty pounds lighter, Jonathan runs into Marco on an LGBT cruise. Marco doesn’t recognize him, the sparks fly, and Jonathan pretends to be someone else for the week—Jonah Rutledge—someone good enough to be loved.

Marco Pellegrini has always been driven. He rose from poverty to the pinnacle of business success, and he’ll do anything to protect his reputation—including hiding his bisexuality. Having saved Vallen Industries, he’s weary of the rat race and ready for a more meaningful life. When Marco meets his soul mate for that new life—Jonah Rutledge—on an LGBT cruise, he prepares to stop hiding and start living.

Back on land, the romance crashes when Marco discovers his perfect man is not only a lie but the son of his boss, Frederick Vallen. Jonathan resolves to win Marco back, but Frederick takes vengeful action. Jonathan and Marco must battle their own fears as well as Frederick’s challenge to get to the future that awaits them on the horizon.

Interview Roulette: Andrea Speed

Today’s Interview Roulette player is Andrea Speed!

  1. What is the strangest food you like to eat? Candy corn. Look, I know it’s a garbage candy. I know! I still kind of like it. It’s like eating sweetened candle wax.
  2. One of your characters has just been arrested and calls you to bail him out. Who is it and what did he get busted for? Holden. But he only got resisting arrest thrown at him, a worthless charge, because he pissed off the arresting officer with his sass mouth. He’s done much worse, but they can’t prove it, and nobody’s forcing anything out of him. Frankly, most of the other inmates would rather see him free. His reputation precedes him.
  3. Describe an annoying habit one of your characters has. Roan used to bite his fingernails. He still does occasionally. He won’t admit it, and if you called him on it he’d probably deny it, but he does.
  4. You’ve been invited to a party being held by your boss. Which of your characters will you take with you as your guest? Paris. He can charm everyone and be the center of attention, while I lurk in a corner, eating all their food.
  5. What were your favorite childhood books? This is going to be weird and make no sense, but for a while when I was young, I was really into animal books – White Fang, Black Beauty, Call of the Wild, et cetera. I was also really into Edgar Allan Poe. You might think The Raven was the crossover point, but no. I can’t really explain it.
  6. Describe one time someone surprised you. If you knew what a horrible memory I have … I think learning I won a Rainbow Award was such a surprise I actually considered that maybe it was a prank for a moment.
  7. If you could make anything edible, what would you choose? Anything? Edible books would be great. Read them; eat them.


Book blurb: Kaede Hiyashi is sick and tired of living in the shadow of his father, supervillain Doctor Terror. Brilliant but crazy, Doctor Terror sends his son to Corwyn, California, for reasons Kaede can’t imagine. Sent to accompany and protect him is Ash, a genetically modified supersoldier raised and trained by an infamous death cult.

Corwyn is lousy with superheroes, led by the obnoxious Dark Justice. Kaede finds himself dancing around Dark Justice as he digs into his father’s mysterious business and teaches his socially awkward—but physically lethal—bodyguard to acclimate to “normal” life. Can these two wacky supervillains figure out what Doctor Terror wants them to do, solve the riddle of the villain known as Black Hand, and keep Dark Justice from raining on their bloody parade? The course of love—and world domination—never did run smooth.
