Welcome to my weekly Author Spotlight. I’ve asked a bunch of my author friends to answer a set of interview questions, and to share their latest work.
Today, Phoenix Hell – I’m a son, grandson, best friend, brother, uncle; a gray witch, and Oracle. One who fights invisible illnesses and mental ones. I’m shy at first but when you get to know me I’m fun and loving. I have always loved the paranormal and since reading the gay romance scene, I wanted to be the next Anne Rice or Sherrilyn Kenyon with a twist. I’m currently writing gay romance with either a Paranormal spin or a supernatural twist. When I’m not writing, I am reading books by my favorite authors, drinking sweet tea and just trying to relax.
Thanks so much, Phoenix, for joining me!
Phoenix is giving away an eBook copy of the first book in the series, Hellagor’s Flame. Comment on this post for a chance to win.
J. Scott Coatsworth: As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Phoenix Hell: A doctor, then a dentist but I could never stand the sight of blood.
JSC: When did you know you wanted to write, and when did you discover that you were good at it?
PH: But I have always loved telling stories. I decided back in 2008/2009, that I wanted to be the next Anne Rice or Sherrilyn Kenyon but within the Gay Romance genre.
*snorts* good at writing, doubtful as I second guess my work.
JSC: If you could kill one person, who would it be, and why?
PH: Snorts I can’t say.
JSC: How would you describe your writing style/genre?
PH: I write gay romance with a paranormal/supernatural twist.
JSC: What fantasy realm would you choose to live in and why?
PH: Does marvel comics count? I want to have a connection to my namesake the Phoenix force. Otherwise I want to live on Amber Kell’s dragon planet. Or in Hawaii with AJ Llewellyn’s Kimo and Lopaka.
JSC: What was your first published work? Tell me a little about it.
PH: Non gay romance was a book of dark poetry. Its not your normal poetry as there is a lot of emotions in it. My first gay romance is A demonic Christmas; it deals with a very powerful man that falls for an alpha shifter of a weird pack.
JSC: What pets are currently on your keyboard, and what are their names?
PH: Pets? Ummmmm I have furkids. Missy, Cleo are the ones that are around my legs.
JSC: What’s your writing process?
PH: When I feel up to it. Some days it can start before noon, in the afternoon or late at night.
JSC: Which of your own characters would you Kill? Fuck? Marry? And why?
PH: Kill Metatron, he’s a former Angel of heaven. Marry Kokoro from Death’s Heart because of the inspiration, and his unusual gifts. And Fuck Lucifer, from Death’s Heart because of who he’s modeled after and so that I can say I’ve had sex with the ruler of hell.
JSC: What are you working on now, and when can we expect it?
PH: Death’s Heart, it features the being called Death who is the boss grim reaper who meets his heart. I’m hoping it will be ready at the end of the year or first of 2018.
And now for Phoenix’s new book: Metatron’s Pytho:
Pytho: The ancient name for Delphi; root word for Pythia.
Meet Lorcan Thompson AKA Cory Cane, an adult entertainment performer. He’s found out some startling things about himself; like the fact his mate is an all powerful Angel with powers on par with Alastair, King of the Divine Presence. And let’s not forget that his father kept the secret of whom his mother really is, A Goddess by the name of Hecate. Also the powers that were awoken in him, makes him an all powerful Pytho.
Metatron, Prince of the Divine Presence & Mate to one Lorcan Thompson. He had been recalled to Heaven and somehow was struck with a virus. Hellagor rescues him, because he and Lorcan are dying after being separated from one another.
Together they must deal with the kidnapping of Lorcan’s nephew, a powerful psychic entity and one of the four horsemen.
Plus a little bit of a back story on Hellagor after he loses his cool.
Will they fall in Love? What happens to an Angel that fell? And what are Primordial Hecateans?
