Jen: Tell us about You Don’t Ask We Don’t Tell Book One Basic Training and where is can be purchased.

BLMorticia: Thank you for having me. Basic Training is a book about a young man’s quest to “get right” in his words, become straight. He isn’t comfortable with it and joins the army to try getting rid f his homosexuality. It’s dramatic, comical and has some romance as well. It is part of the series, You Don’t Ask We Don’t Tell because the story continues beyond Cody. It will be available through Amazon, Are, B&N, Bookstrand On February 3rd.

Jen: At what age did you discover writing? When where you first published? Tell us your call story.

BLMorticia: Shar discovered writing around the time she was 17 but she didn’t begin publishing until late 2010. Call story? If you mean what story made us want to try pubbing, I believe it was the STARbooks anthology call for Rock and Roll m/m stories or if the question pertains to what made Shar write, she would say the support and comments she received on her fanfiction.

Jen: Describe your writing in three words.

BLMorticia: Snarky, sexy, and quick.

Jen: How do you approach your writing? Do you plot or go with the flow?

BLMorticia: Now I do a character outline and have an interview with my MC to determine what his or her personality traits are. I’ll also write down a couple of scenes as well.

Jen: What are your biggest motivations to write? What keeps you going?

BLMorticia: Motivation is that I truly love creating stories, all of the muses do. When a plot bunny comes into your head, you’re just raring to get on it. So many of those roam for us. *sigh*

Jen: Is there a genre you’d like to write? Is there a genre you’ll probably stay away from? Why?

BLMorticia: Me, BL, won’t say she’ll never do a genre. Anything that surrounds erotica and romance I will most likely end up doing. I’d love to do a paranormal, like a shape shifter or even a scifi.

Jen: How much of your actual life gets written into your fictional stories? Have you ever written yourself into a story?

BLMorticia: Well with all the muses, Shar puts a little of herself each time. Whether it’s a stressful situation, a particular issue in her marriage, her characters feel it too. Yes, I’ve wrote my muse self into the next story with Rebel Ink, Losing My Inhibitions.

Jen: Do you become attached to your characters and have a hard time letting them go, or are you happy that their story is told and you can move on?

BLMorticia: Happy when it’s told and sending them on their way. Haven’t reached that yet. I have two sequels to do and 2 series to finish. *sigh*

Jen: Who has inspired you as an author?

BLMorticia: Anne Rice is my fave all time writer, Zane, and my peers in the writer’s community, so many to mention.

Jen: What do you do in your free time?

BLMorticia: Read, relax, and listen to music live and otherwise.

Jen: What’s next for you?

BLMorticia: More writing *laughs* I have several books to finish, My Lieutenant 2, You Don’t Ask book 2-4, Losing My Inhibitions 2, book 4 Something New On the Menu Candyman, a rock and roll series called The Wrtched, BDSM story called Happiness in Slavery, so much!
