Interview with Houston Havens

1)    What inspired you to become an author? 

I’d say I was always a writer in my soul ... my blood is Irish. We are the original storytellers of yore. Other than that, my ‘unique’ life filled me with experiences, good and bad that made me grow into a person who always asks why and what if … two questions a writer needs to ask before writing a story.

     2 ) Do you write in different genres?

          LOL...well Sinful Surrender is multi genre story and includes *takes deep breath* Erotic Romance and Ménage in several Romance sub genres: Paranormal, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Post-Apocalyptic, Dystopian, and Futuristic.

          Now, I will say this is book one of a series (though each book stands alone) some of the books fall heavier into one or more of these genres, yet they all have a touch of each genre in them. They are all erotic polyandry ménage lifestyle stories. One book may focus more on the dystopian and post-apocalyptic aspects. Another will focus on the science fiction aspects, and in others the readers will hopefully be intrigued by the paranormal, fantasy, and magic.

        I tried to weave romance and these sub-genres into each book, and the characters from all the books roam throughout series, yet each story has its own romantic tale of ménage love.

3)    If yes which is your favorite genre to write?

I’m very Irish in that I can’t be tied to any one genre … the rolling stone kind of thing … it runs in me blood! LOL so, I can’t be picking just one over another. I like to toss in a Western now and then. Honestly, I don’t think I could write in just one genre … it’s not me.

4)    Do you title the book first or wait until after it’s complete?

I always have a working title, but I’m never married to it. Sinful Surrender was titled by my friend WildAboutBones … I adore her. She’s a smart lass, she is. I love the title, don’t you?

5)    Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

Yes! But I don’t want to scare them. Everything I write is based on some truth and the information is out there for those who seek it.

6)    Is the book, characters, or any scenes based on a true life experience, someone you know, or events in your own life?

No. The book is fiction. I’ve based many of the things in this series on facts, but twisted them with artistic license to intrigue the readers.

7)    What is your current “work in progress” or upcoming projects?

I’m currently polishing book two of this series and have rough drafts for books three through six. Book seven is still on the drawing board. I also have plans for a second series that will be a spin-off of this one.

8)    Do you have to travel much to do research for your books?

Only where this Irish imagination takes me. I am a storyteller. My characters visit me and show me their worlds. I hope the readers will love those worlds as much as I do. Thank you for having me here today. I’ve enjoyed the visit. Come visit my characters and worlds!

Book Description:

Top psychic spy Fay Avalon saw too much on her latest mind traveling mission and is now on the run from her post-catastrophic dystopian government, searching for the truth and proof. She escapes but is shot down, landing in the arms of the enemy.

In Drakker and Arlo’s world, women are so rare the men have accepted a polyandrous lifestyle. When the brothers stumble upon Fay unconscious in the wreckage of an aircraft, they are immediately attracted to her. Arlo wants to keep her, but Drakker knows they can’t. They must take her to their brother Logan Abán, leader of their people.

Logan struggles with trusting anyone, even himself. When a beautiful, intelligent, and intriguing woman falls into their laps, his denied desires for intimacy challenge his need to trust the spy. He’s frustrated by romantic Arlo’s claims of her innocence. Even when pragmatic and dominating Drakker defends her as well, Logan refuses to trust his gut.

Can one woman satisfy the diverse desires of three men? Will Logan’s fears be realized by betrayal? Is Fay to be sentenced to death as a spy, suffer a fate worse than death by being returned to her government as a traitor, or will she find a new life and love as the wife of three sexy brothers?
