Interview with Kate Hill
Jan 28, 2011 Filed under: book recommendation, interview
Today the lovely Kate Hill is here to answer some questions about her writing. Kate is the author of books filled with yummy vampires, delightful shapeshifters and more……
What genre(s) do you write? Do you have a favorite genre or one that’s easiest to write?
I write erotic, paranormal, sci-fi and historical romance. I’ve also written some traditional romance. My favorite is paranormal. For me it’s a little easier than other genres because I enjoy it so much.
What type of hero is most appealing to you?
I love an antihero or a villain turned hero. Golden or sweet heroes can be great too, but generally I go for the “bad” boy. Depending on your point of view, the villain of a story can easily become the hero and vice versa.
Do you have a favorite book or character among those you’ve written?
Honestly, I don’t think I can choose only because every book has parts about it I truly love and parts about it that drove me crazy during the writing process. It’s the same with characters. Some characters I feel very close to are Vincent and Matthew from my Ancient Blood series, Xenos from Moonlight on Water, Sir William from The Mad Knight’s Bride, and Rory and Lao from Bloody or Nothing.
What is the best book you’ve read in the last few months?
I actually read this book in 2010, but it left a big impression on me. I thought the characters were really likeable and the story touched me. The book is called Willow Bend by Ally Blue.
What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
I enjoy working out, reading and watching horror and action movies.
Describe your latest release.
My latest release is Rough, Tough and Tumble: Hung at Dawn. It’s about three alien shapeshifters who are forced into a time travel experiment. Their first stop is the old west. During their adventures they find out about each other and start to fall in love while helping a town that’s threatened by outlaws.
Sometimes Dr. Apriyn focused so intently on his work that he neglected his baser needs. Just because he obsessed about his projects didn’t mean he lacked the same sexual desires as other men. Today’s passionate interlude was a necessary part of his plan, but he still enjoyed himself tremendously.
His post as a general medical examiner in the Aspectian capital city meant he had many opportunities to find the people needed for his experiment. He required three highly skilled Aspectians who were familiar with Earth languages and had strong survival instincts but lacked family connections or prominent positions in society. In short, he needed competent people who could easily disappear. That seemed impossible, but not if one knew where to look.
Dr. Apriyn didn’t need pillars of society. In fact for the dark, perilous science he dabbled in, he required people equally dangerous, seductive and powerful.
Most people wouldn’t consider a pleasure shifter for such work, but when he met Zandra last month, he knew she was perfect for the task. Further study of the young woman proved him right.
Now he stretched out on the satin covered bed in the pleasure house where she worked. He watched her comb her long, chestnut hair. He’d requested she keep her true form during their appointment, and she willingly obliged.
Here on the planet Aspectia, some inhabitants possessed the gift of shapeshifting. The planet was named for these magnificent beings called Aspectians. Dr. Apriyn, though born here, was a non-shifter, identical to an Earth human. Still his shifter cousins fascinated him.
“You told me what form you want me in,” Zandra said, gazing at him through brown eyes trimmed with thick, dark lashes. Though she’d grown up on the streets, her eyes weren’t hard like so many others Apriyn had seen. “And you asked me to brush my hair.”
“You look beautiful when you brush your hair,” he said. Nothing turned him on more than the sight of a naked woman brushing her long hair. He loved the silkiness of her tresses and the gentle bounce of her full breasts.
“What else do you want?” she asked.
“I want to touch you,” he said in a husky voice. His heartbeat quickened and his cock swelled, poking against the red sheet that covered him from the waist down. He reached beneath and stroked himself, his gaze still fixed on Zandra.
“Here, let me help.” She placed her brush on the night table and climbed beneath the sheets. Her lush body half draped over his, she used the sole of her foot to rub his calves while her hand curled around his cock. His eyes narrowed and his pulse quickened.
Zandra’s thumb swept over his cock head and teased the ultra sensitive underside. As good as this felt, he wanted to touch her back. He hungered for sex, though as a non-shifting male he rarely nabbed the attention of other Aspectians. They generally preferred their own kind, yet here in the underground, pleasure shifters fucked anyone for the right price.
Dr. Apriyn had paid to use Zandra tonight, but she had no idea the bonus he would soon offer.
