*whispers* I’m a bit tired of Jerry Garcia.
DFT: What is your greatest fear?
The death of someone I love.
DFT: What would you change about yourself if you could?
At the moment, I think I could stand to go more unnoticed. I’m ready for some anonymity for a while.
DFT: What is your greatest talent?
If I can’t charm someone out of a confrontation, I’m quite fast in a fight. But I’m really slow, meticulous, full of stamina, and focused in other areas.
DFT: What are you most hopeless at?
I can’t seem to stay serious for too long.
DFT: What is your most cherished possession?
My honor. Or my sense of humor. I can’t decide which.
DFT: What makes you blush?
*slow smile* I’m not sure, but you can try to make me blush if you want to.
DFT: What is your worst habit / vice?
I play WoW when I should be doing other things. Ssh.
DFT: Do you have any irrational fears / phobias?
I’m not really a fearful kind of guy but recently I’ve been dreaming about falling when my wings are pinned.
DFT: Boxers or Briefs?
Fill in the Blanks…
Nobody knows I am… not that into professional sports. I’ll watch games at parties and group outings and talk sports, but when I’m by myself I’d rather put on an old Godzilla movie. Or maybe Tarzan, Frankenstein, or Dracula. Young Frankenstein? Classic, man. Love those Hammer House of Horror films.
I wish I could stop… biting my nails. It’s a bad habit.
I’m a sucker for… women’s fashions and chick flicks. With the right partner.
The worst part of my life is… currently I’m not seeing my friends as much as I used to.
Nobody would believe me if they saw me… walking a Pomeranian dog named Rasputin.
When I feel sorry for myself I… sprawl on the couch and play video games.
My pet peeve is… when someone is abusive to those with less power.
I’d really rather… eat wild game, deer, fish, and seafood than domestic beef. Although I’d never turn down prime rib.
The first thing I do in the morning is… when I’m by myself, I head for the coffee. When I’m with someone else, we don’t get out of bed for a while.
My favorite sexual activity is… All of it. All. Of. It.

About the Book:
In the latest Novel of the Elder Races, a Queen on the brink of sanity has no one to rely on except the Wyr warrior whose conviction is every bit as strong as his passion…
In order to save his friend’s life, Wyr sentinel Rune Ainissesthai made a bargain with Vampyre Queen Carling—without knowing what she would ask from him in return. But when Rune attempts to make good on his debt, he finds a woman on the edge.
Recently, Carling’s Power has become erratic, forcing her followers to flee in fear. Despite the danger, Rune is drawn to the ailing Queen and decides to help her find a cure for the serpent’s kiss—the vampyric disease that’s killing her.
With their desire for each other escalating just as quickly as Carling’s instability spirals out of control, the sentinel and the Queen will have to rely on each other if they have any hope of surviving the serpent’s kiss…
