Q&A with Dark

[WARNING: The post may contain spoilers.]

Dark is the author of The One I Want and The Nanny

Q. Tell me a little bit about yourself

Well, lemme see. I’m 30 years old, been writing since at least 5th grade. A classmate was an artist and we came up with characters and stories together. Nowadays I’d call it role-playing. I have my bachelor’s degree in engineering and served as an officer in the US Air Force for four years before deciding to get out and pursue my love of teaching. I’m currently half-way through my semester of student-teaching, on-track to receive my credential in February 2011. I want to teach 8th grade science. My credential will be for 6-12 grade science, so I could teach any grade, and my specialty is physics.

Q&A with Myr

Myr is the author of a few gay-themed stories, but he is best known for having started GayAuthors

Q. Tell me a little about yourself.

I am an engineer and a complete geek. I love most things fantasy and science fiction. I tend to write fantasies more than anything else.

Q. What inspires you to write?

I am typically inspired to write after reading something good, watching something good or spending time out in the middle of nowhere. I read mostly fantasy stuff, when I get time to do it.

50 questions with author Emulated

[WARNING: The post may contain spoilers.]

Emulated is best known for his stories A Vulcan’s Love and American Differences. I spent some time getting to know him, and asking a few questions in an interview with him. Here is what he had to share.

Q. Tell me what sort of stuff inspires you in your writing?

A. All different things inspire me in my writing. Sometimes a particular story line/plot may be based on a similar event that I am aware of personally, but most of the time it’s all decided in my head. Amusingly, I get a lot of inspirations during car journeys. I have no idea why, but I can come out of the car at the other end brimming with ideas!

The end of the long night

[WARNING: The post may contain spoilers.]

So I’ve been watching Angel on DVD. Your protagonist Angel is a traditional vampire. No going out in the sun, can’t see him in a mirror, and steak through the heart turns a vampire to dust. This is the way it is supposed to be, right?

Then you have Twilight where they sparkle like diamonds in the daylight, but they can go out, etc.

So when you want to write a romance involving a vampire, do you have to forbid them from what vampires have in Twilight?

Left to Ashes

[Warning: Possible spoilers.]

So Left to Ashes is my new Twilight inspired story. Think of it is Twilight meets Cinderella.

We have Keenan Stewart, a young man forced to move from Toronto where he lived with his father, to London, Ontario where he moves in with his mother Maria, and his step father Cameron. He has two step sisters Karen, and Diane.

After 6 months of having been at his new school, and a week after his mother was committed to a mental institution, Keenan meets sexy Emmett Cullen. But what happens after Emmett invites Keenan to his family’s masquerade halloween party?

Robin of my dreams

Argh! Ive had two songs on my mind recently. The first is Rhythm of my Heart by Rod Stewart, and the other is Rockin Robin. I don’t know why these songs are stuck in my head, but it’s sort of frustrating. And of course Kardon, one of my IRC moderators is being strange tonight. Not sure why, but maybe he’s secretly in love with Justin or Taryin from Comicality’s Gone from Daylight. For some reason Justin has been on my mind too lately, but perhaps that’s just from Com’s quality workmanship.

the politics of identity

I was chatting with one of my editors the other day on that evil instant messenger, and I jokingly told him I would write him into one of my new stories. I’ve done this before, written someone in. I think it’s kinda cool, really. Plus then I don’t have to invent a name, I already have one. Plus that whole disclaimer thing makes it just too easy. Anyway, my editor said that he didn’t want me to use his real name. He then went on for a bit about his theory of names, and why his own name broke those rules.
