Interview with Mark Henwick

I’d like to welcome author Mark Henwick to the blog today.  He’s an urban fantasy writer who currently has five full-length novels and several novellas out so far.  They are all part of the Bite Back Series, though two novellas are spin-offs.  Today, we’ll be focusing on his first book, Sleight of Hand.  You can find out more details about it at the end of this post.  There is also a giveaway opportunity you don’t want to miss!

Now, on to the interview…


What is your current country of residence? Have you visited other countries?

I live in England, 10 minutes from Windsor, and about 20 minutes south of Heathrow. I was born in Africa and I love travel, so yes, I’ve visited lots of places and hope there are lots more to come. One of my current projects is to visit American states. This year I did the Rockies in a road trip: Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico. Next year, I’m wondering where/how to go. West coast? East coast? Middle? Road trip, cycling, hiking or Amtrak?

If someone was willing to pay you a million dollars cash to run down the street naked, would you do it?

They’d pay me to do it?

Hold on a minute; I’d need to know which street first. Watling Street in England starts in Wales and finishes on the coast near Dover, so I couldn’t run that, naked or not. But the local main street which is less than 100 yards long? $10,000 a yard? Oh, yes.

What genres of books do you like to read?

I read very widely. Crime, Urban Fantasy, SciFi, History and Thrillers are all well represented in my physical and virtual libraries. I’ll read almost any novel to learn how the author tells their story, and I have some very strange ones in my collection. Even them books they call liter-at-ure.

I have quite a few reference books about the process and method of writing. Some of them I’ve actually read.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

Crazy is a state of mind. Not much seemed crazy at the time. However, in hindsight, there are a lot of contenders for this! Giving up the day job to start writing my first book is near the top of the list.

Name a few of the TV shows you like to watch.

Game of Thrones is compulsory, of course, because my daughter, Jessica, is Lady Nymeria, one of the Sand Snakes of Dorne. Anything with my daughter – so I will be watching her as Colleen Wing in Iron Fist, the new Netflix Marvel show starting next year.
Other than that… I watch a lot of American shows to tune my ear, given that the books I write are based in America and I live in England. I like shows that develop characters and I like crime shows. Strangely, I find paranormal TV shows usually don’t quite cut it for me.

So… Blue Bloods, NCIS, CSI (the Las Vegas one), True Detective (preferred the first one), Homeland, In Plain Sight, Rookie Blue, Chicago PD, etc. For all of them, I generally find the first few seasons much better, and then they get caught up in a caricature of themselves.

What would be your weapon of choice if society crumbled and it was each man/woman for themself?

The power of persuasion, to build society back up. And do it better this time.

What is your favorite meal (including side dishes)?

Asian fusion. Spice and variety. Tasting menus, especially with wine.

If you could witness any event in history, what would it be?

Nooooo! I’d much rather not see the events, so I can sit and write about what might have really happened.

What is the weirdest food you’ve ever eaten?

Lol. Rocky Mountain oysters (hint: not oysters), durian fruit (smells like the toilet, tastes like vanilla ice cream), lamb’s brains, marrow, rotten shark, puffer fish.

If money were no object, what kind of car would you get?

An aeroplane. Seriously, when I learned to drive, it was fun. There is less and less of Europe where driving is even remotely describable as fun these days. Across the pond, or down in Oz / NZ, I guess there’s more scope and it would involve a big, slow turning engine, seats like armchairs and good air-conditioning. Or a fast motorcycle.

What would be your ideal writing retreat?

Somewhere without internet and traffic. In the mountains, by the beach, or in the place I’m actually writing about. With similarly minded friends. Wine, beer and great food a couple of miles walk away. And good weather.

What is your favorite outdoor activity?

It varies with mood and weather. Flying my microlight, off-road cycling or walking, and scenic photography are all contenders.

*****************

Thanks so much for being here with us today, Mark.  I envy you for your world travels, and you’ve managed to visit a couple of states I haven’t yet. As for Rocky Mountain oysters, I’ve always known better than to try those, lol.  You should give calf fries a try while you’re at it!

Mark was born in Africa and left out in the sun too often.

An early interest in philosophy and psychology was adequately exorcised by tending bars. And while trying to enroll in a class to read Science Fiction full time, he ended up taking an engineering degree which splendidly qualified him to move into marketing. That in turn spawned a late onset career in creative writing.

When not working, Mark gets high by the slightly less conventional means of a small microlight aircraft or down and dirty on a mountain bike.

He lives with his family in the south of England, and can often be found in the Rockies.

“This is the gift and the sorrow of the Athanate; to see your loves pass before you like the days of summer while your heart still beats. To keep your vigil in the shadows and rise again with every sun.”

For Amber Farrell, post-military life as a PI has its ups and downs: She’s been hit by a truck. She’s being sued by a client. Denver’s newest drug lord just put out a contract on her. The sinister Athanate want her to come in for a friendly chat. And it’s only Tuesday.

Enter Jennifer Kingslund: rich, gorgeous—a tough businesswoman who’s known for getting what she wants in the boardroom and the bedroom. Someone’s trying to sabotage her new resort and destroy her company—and she wants Amber to find out who.

The answers lead Amber past Were and Adept, right back to the Athanate—and a centuries-old war that could threaten not just Denver, but the nation that Amber swore to protect and serve.

And all sides want to claim her for their own…

Interview with Kate Danley

I’ve got author Kate Danley here with us to answer a few questions about herself.  She primarily writes fantasy, urban fantasy, and Penny Dreadful stories, plus play-writing!  So far, Kate has published 15 novels, 5 short stories, 1 collaboration, and 12 plays.  For today, we’ll be highlighting a book from her Maggie MacKay series- The Ghost and Ms. MacKay (A Maggie MacKay Holiday Short Story).  You can find out more information about it at the end of this post.  There is also a giveaway, so be sure to check it out!

Now, for the interview…

What is the longest you’ve ever stayed awake?  Why?  

I once was an actress in a film called “My Turn”.  We filmed in a movie theater and could only get into the space after the last movie ended.  But since it was a small indie project, I had to keep my office day job.  So, I think I went three or four days without sleeping.  I went straight from work to set and then from set to work.  I started seeing things out of the corner of my eye that weren’t there and falling asleep in between blinks.  When I finally was able to grab a whole two hours of sleep, it felt like I had slept for a week.

What is your beverage of choice when you first wake up?  What happens if you can’t get it?

I am a coffee addict.  In the words of Jeff Bezos, you haven’t had enough until you can thread a moving sewing machine.  I get zombified without it.

Name a few of the TV shows you like to watch.

If anyone is looking for shows to add to their streaming queue, I highly recommend The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Green Wing, X-Files, Moone Boy, Bluestone 42, Friday Night Dinner, Episodes, The Great British Bakeoff, Fixer Upper, and Agatha Raisin Mysteries.

If you could witness any event in history, what would it be?

I sure would have loved to have seen an original Shakespeare production at the Globe.

If money were no object, what kind of car would you get?

A Morgan Aero Supersports… or Herbie the Lovebug

Name a mystical creature you wish you could have as a pet.

Not so much a pet, but I’ve always been fascinated by the Gnome books and illustrations by Wil Huygen and Rien Poortvliet.  I would love to walk out into my garden to discover a family of gnomes had taken up residence.

What would be your ideal writing retreat?

Annie Dillard has a gorgeous book called The Writing Life.  Her ideal writer’s retreat is a cinderblock office with no windows.  Because the room itself is so unremarkable, you are forced to retreat to the page and create a wonderful world in your imagination.  Some writer friends of mine have taken to booking week long cruises, but they just stay on the boat (with its lack of Wifi) and write.  I know that when I’m in the UK, I am so moved by the art and history and people that I come back to my hotel room and am up till all hours because the Muse won’t let me sleep.  So, perhaps a quiet little room in London looking out over the rooftops, no internet or phones, with tickets to a West End show every night.

*****************

Thanks so much for being here with us today, Kate.  Glad to have fellow coffee addict drop by and love your idea of an ideal writing retreat!

Interview with Devon Monk

We’ve got author Devon Monk here with us today to answer a few questions about herself.  For those who don’t know, she is an urban fantasy, science fiction, humor, and horror author who has published twenty novels and a short story collection so far.  Some of you may recognize her from her Allie Beckstrom series, but today we are going to highlight the newest novel from her Ordinary Magic series–Devil’s and Details.

You can find out more information about it at the end of this post, as well as a giveaway Devon is doing.  Now, on to the interview!

*****

What is your beverage of choice when you first wake up?  What happens if you can’t get it?

Coffee! Plain ol’ drip brewed coffee. Of course, that’s pretty much my beverage of choice 24/7. And if I don’t get it, well, it’s not a pretty thing.

 

Do you have pets?  If so, what kind and do they help you write your books?

We recently adopted a Chow-chow/Husky mix from our local shelter. She’s the strangest dog I’ve ever owned. She’s nocturnal, isn’t afraid of thunderstorms or fireworks, and almost never barks, growls, or whines. It’s possible her previous owner was a vampire. I’m not sure if she’s helped me with my writing, but she did help me break my thumb while I was writing DEVILS AND DETAILS, book #2 of the Ordinary Magic series this year. Good times, dog.

If someone was willing to pay you a million dollars cash to run down the street naked, would you do it?

Yes. I’m a pretty shy person, but a million dollars would bring out my inner extrovert.

Name a few of the TV shows you like to watch.

Supernatural, Flash, Sherlock (BBC), Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Drunk History, Archer, Bob’s Burgers, Jessica Jones (haven’t tried Luke Cage yet, but am excited about it), Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Modern Family, Project Runway, and Shark Tank.

What would be your weapon of choice if society crumbled and it was each man/woman for themself?

A coffee pot. No, wait. A solar-powered coffee pot. Because coffee.

If money were no object, what kind of car would you get?

A 1967 black four-door Chevy Impala. Baby! (Shout out to my SPN peeps!)

*****************

Thanks so much for being here with us today, Devon.  You and I share a few favorite TV shows, including Supernatural!  Also, love your dog.  She is adorable 🙂

devilsanddetailsBOOK SUMMARY:

Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea…

Police Chief Delaney Reed is good at keeping secrets for the beach town of Ordinary Oregon–just ask the vacationing gods or supernatural creatures who live there.

But with the first annual Cake and Skate fundraiser coming up, the only secret Delaney really wants to know is how to stop the unseasonable rain storms. When all the god powers are stolen, a vampire is murdered, and her childhood crush turns out to be keeping deadly secrets of his own, rainy days are the least of her worries.

Hunting a murderer, outsmarting a know-it-all god, and uncovering an ancient vampire’s terrifying past isn’t how she planned to spend her summer. But then again, neither is falling back in love with the one man she should never trust.

Interview with K.F. Breene

I’ve got author K.F. Breene here today to answer a few questions about herself.  She’s an urban fantasy, paranormal, and epic fantasy writer with thirteen books published so far.  Her series include the Darkness Series and Warrior Chronicles.  Today, we’ll be focusing on her novel, Chosen, which you can read more about at the end of the post.

Now on to the interview!

*****

What is the longest you’ve ever stayed awake?  Why?

I’ve stayed awake for 36 hours. I went to Italy and our flight was first delayed in San Francisco, and then in London. I can’t sleep on planes or while sitting upright, so I was awake the whole time. Guinness in Heathrow got me through it. My husband didn’t fare so well.

What is your current country of residence?  Have you visited other countries?

I live just north of San Francisco near wine country in the U.S. I’ve been to Mexico, Canada, and a few places in Europe. I love traveling, so I will definitely be going to more places.

What is your beverage of choice when you first wake up?  What happens if you can’t get it?

I don’t have any sort of “first waking up” anything, other than grumpiness. I don’t really drink coffee, I don’t need to have tea, and I don’t always have a protein shake for breakfast, so it’s a case by case situation. This means that if I wake up and any one thing is missing, it doesn’t put me out in the slightest. I had Pepsi this morning because the husband had opened it. It went well with my slice of pizza.

Do you have pets?  If so, what kind and do they help you write your books?

I don’t have any pets at the moment except two children, who follow me around like puppies. Soon I’ll be getting a Doberman, which is my favorite kind of dog.

If someone was willing to pay you a million dollars cash to run down the street naked, would you do it?

I’ve done it for free. Tequila is a crazy thing. But while sober, I’m still not put out by nakedness. Having kids will do that to a person—you just stop caring. At least I did. If my body is my temple, then I’ve had one too many sacrifices. At four in the morning the other weekend I went to my car in a thong and tank top to hunt for my kid’s pacifier. She was screaming (she’s an infant) and I was at my wit’s end.
Again, I’ve just stopped caring. If it’s the middle of the night and I’m tired—anything goes.

What genres of books do you like to read?

I like everything. If it has a good story, I’ll read it. I need to move around, as well, because I get bored with the same thing too many times in a row.

In unrelated news, I almost always struggle spelling boredom and bored. Why, I don’t no. So that just happened.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

Jaysus—take a number. I really can’t pick one. If you read my books, especially the straight romances, pick out the craziest thing in there, that you can’t imagine could ever happen in real life, and I guarantee that was based off of personal experience. I love the thrill of the moment, so I just DO. I don’t really think about it. I take risks and act like a lunatic. Add alcohol and a party? Yeah. I’m nuts. I volunteered to be whipped at the S&M street fair in San Francisco (I learned quickly that that is not my thing, but I was tied in—one of my stupider ideas. Yes, I had clothes on).

I took my kid down Bourbon Street at 10pm after a rain storm—she had the time of her life, at 5. I complimented a naked guy at Gay Pride for his huge penis, and muttered that I hoped he was a bottom, because ouch. I jumped off a horse because I thought it was about to buck me off. I’ve streaked, skinny dipped in lakes, peed outdoors (no matter the setting), wandered around the front yard in a robe with a bottle of wine, swam in a fountain after bottomless mimosas on the Las Vegas strip… There’s no end.

All fun and games until the cops are called. And yes, I’ve run from the cops on several occasions when they came to break up a party.  I’m not as crazy now because I’m stuck at home with the kids. Which is probably a good thing. Until they are grown. Then, shenanigans.

Name a few of the TV shows you like to watch.

I don’t really like watching TV. When I do it’s because the husband does nothing else, so I watch Masterchef or Hells Kitchen, because I like Gordon Ramsey, America’s Got Talent and the Voice, mostly because of the announcers, and American Ninja Warrior. Competitions, mostly, so I can shut the brain off. Otherwise, I’d rather be reading or working (which is some part of authoring). Without the kids I’d be forcing myself to go walking or running. When that baby grows up a little bit watch out! I’ll be FREE!!!!

What would be your weapon of choice if society crumbled and it was each man/woman for themself?

Gun. I’d want a rifle for the long shot, and a handgun for running between place to place. Unless people count as weapons, in which case, I’d want to make great friends with someone who had special ops training and a really bad attitude.

What is your favorite meal (including side dishes)?

It changes. I don’t have a favorite. It really depends on my mood.

If you could witness any event in history, what would it be?

I’d love to see the turmoil of the Vietnam era from a distance. I’d want to feel the atmosphere and the tone of that time. See what the media was like and the general outlook. It seems like a crazy time, and I want to feel that, but without actually living it.

What is the weirdest food you’ve ever eaten?

What’s weird to me is tame to a lot of my friends. What I didn’t love was dear heart. Ew. It was cut up and put on my spaghetti (my dad is a hunter). Other than that, I’ve experimented a bit because friends have made me and you can get anything in San Francisco. I wouldn’t know what of that is weird, though. Maybe most.

If money were no object, what kind of car would you get?

I just got one of my dream cars, which is an Audi. It isn’t as cool as I’ve always made it up to be, and for that reason, I don’t really care about cars anymore. Although, if I could go as fast as I wanted, I’d get the fastest car I could and go nuts. I love speed.

Name a mystical creature you wish you could have as a pet.

None. It would probably be a diva. Yeah, unicorn, your horn is great, but your pooping all over the front walk is not. Move along! Don’t you toss your head at me, you’re not that great, I don’t care what the neighborhood kids have to say!

What would be your ideal writing retreat?

I used to write overlooking Ocean Beach. In addition to well built surfers changing and surfing right there, one day I saw dolphins. As far as writing goes, that’s where I like to do it. As far as a retreat goes, I’d rather be somewhere mundane with a bunch of like-minded writers so we can talk business.

When I travel, I like to experience my surroundings and make notes that’ll go in a future books. I don’t like wasting my time with my head in a made-up land, so for me, I don’t write when I travel to great places. That’s why I’d want a mundane place, so I’m not missing out on anything.

You should know that I am an extroverted-introvert. I’m crazy, and like to be in the buzz of people, and like to be OUT experiencing life, but then I need to have some quiet time to process. I need a balance of both. So I’m not like most writers, and staying indoors writing, in a buzzing city, would be torture.

What is your favorite outdoor activity?

A BBQ with friends and fun, especially if there are lawn games or something to do. That’s a good time.

*****************

Thanks for stopping by to visit today, K.F.!  Loved your stories about your wild and crazy times.  Like you, I can be both an extrovert and introvert, so I totally understand how that works.

**Overall Top 100 Bestseller by USA Today Bestselling Author!**

It is said that when war threatens the world, one individual will be selected by prophecy to lead the Shadow Warriors out of the Land of Mist and reclaim the freedom which has been stolen.
~~
Shanti has grown up under the constant threat of war. Since she helped her people defeat a raiding party by using a special power, she’s been a hunted woman. Carrying rare abilities and an uncanny fighting aptitude, Shanti is the only hope of salvation for her people. The problem is, she doesn’t believe in her own divinity, and when she flounders, she nearly fails in the duty hanging so heavy on her shoulders.

It seems like any other day when Sanders and his band of misfit boys find a foreign woman clinging to life in the wastelands. Oblivious to the weapon they now have in their possession, they are content to harbor the mysterious woman until she is well enough to continue her journey.

But when the war spreads its arms and lands on her borrowed doorstep, Shanti has no choice but to reveal her secrets, plunging her saviors into danger. If they band with her, they will face certain death. But to trade her to Xandre, the warlord desperate to add her to his war machine, would be to give up their entire way of life.

War is coming. The only choice becomes: Which side do you choose?
