Today I’m pleased to bring you an interview with Dannika Dark. She is an urban fantasy/paranormal romance author with fourteen books currently available between her Mageri series (UF) and Seven series (PNR). Dannika has been kind enough to answer a few questions below. Whether you’re familiar with her work or not, this is a great chance to learn more about her.
I’ve also highlighted the first novel in her Mageri series titled “Sterling” at the bottom of this post so those new to this author can learn more about it as well.
If someone was willing to pay you a million dollars cash to run down the street naked, would you do it?
No. There are too many people with cell phone cameras. If I could choose the street and it be a desolate country road, abandoned since 1932, then yes, I would run down THAT street naked.
What genres of books do you like to read?
Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Romantic Suspense, some Horror, autobiographies, and a lot of books in the humor section. The more offbeat and crazy the humor, the better.
Name a few of the TV shows you like to watch.
I have an unhealthy obsession with Vikings. I love historical or fantasy shows, so I’m also addicted to Game of Thrones and Outlander. I binge watch a lot of TV during writing breaks. Classic shows I love are the original Twilight Zone, Honeymooners, Seinfeld, Three’s Company, and Family Ties. Sitcoms aren’t what they used to be, so I tend to watch a lot of them that ran from the 60s to the 80s. That might have something to do with why there are so many scenes in my books that are situational comedy.
What would be your weapon of choice if society crumbled and it was each man/woman for themself?
Probably one of those Medieval broadaxes with two blades. A gun would be more practical, except that I’d eventually run out of ammo. Fewer people might mess with me if I had an axe swinging from my hip.
What is your favorite meal (including side dishes)?
Wow. This changes from time to time, but I’d have to say homemade lumpia and fried rice. My mom tweaked the recipe over the years after living in the Philippines, so nobody makes it better.
If you could witness any event in history, what would it be?
Probably the last day of the dinosaurs. That would be a two for one since I could see dinosaurs and a meteor crash into earth. Just so long as a I have a magical bubble protecting me from becoming dino-food or a pile of ash.
Name a mystical creature you wish you could have as a pet.
A centaur. There is no other answer. And he might resemble Jason Momoa just a little bit.
Thanks so much, Dannika, for participating in this interview. I would love to see the last day of the dinosaurs as well and if you get a centaur that looks like Jason Momoa I’d have to come over to visit, lol!

IMMORTALS LIVE AMONG US.
Zoë Merrick lived an ordinary life until the night she was brutally attacked. She narrowly escapes death, rescued by Adam Razor, an ex-soldier who offers her friendship and a place to stay. But something else is different. Zoë is unable to control an unexplainable energy coursing through her body.
Justus De Gradi is a man who can teach her that control. She meets him by chance – a man who’s handsome, arrogant, and not entirely human. He reveals that she’s a Mage – an immortal made of light, not magic. Zoë must now make a choice: Rebuild her life in the human world with the man who saved her, or live with Justus and learn how to use her extraordinary gifts. Justus has sworn an oath to protect her life, but can he guard her from the one man who has a right to claim it?
Zoë learns the price of freedom…and the value of loyalty.
