Jen: Please tell us about your newest release and where the idea came from.
Rebekah: Mercury Rising is the first of three novellas centered around the character Hermes from The Cursed Satyroi series. The novellas take place on the side-lines of the main series, so they are important in the long run. The idea for this story came about because I needed a way to get a character out of Olympus and the only character that could do it was….you guessed it…Hermes.
“I don’t have time for this, Hy. I have things to do. Important things.” A promise made to a satyr, one Hermes intended to keep. A damsel in distress. Heroics and all.
Hybris yawned. “Yeah. I see. Meandering around California and swimming at the beach is a matter of life or death.”
Shaking his head, he opened the glass door into the house. He attempted to shut it behind him, but she shoved past. Hermes made an extensive effort not to notice she still smelled like pomegranates.
“Well, I was waiting for Zeus to summon me before you showed up with your judgy…judginess.” He closed the door and turned back to find her relaxing on his couch, despite her soaking wet clothing. Rude.
She studied her nails. “And did he?”
“Then you aren’t doing anything important.” Her gaze flicked down to his groin. “Yet.” Standing, Hybris advanced toward him.
“No. Oh, no, no, no. No.” Hermes rocketed away and hovered out of her immediate reach. “We are so not going there again. Not this time. Not this day. Not happening.” Was she for real? After all she’d done, she wanted sex from him?
Unsure if his ego or her influence on his personal hubris affected him, a warm smugness took hold. He’d always been cocky, but she could bring it out to the maximum.
“And why not? I’m a beautiful woman, you desire me, and you have an open schedule. Take off your pants and pleasure me.”
Jen: Describe your writing in 3 words.
Rebekah: Snarky. Imaginative. Fun.
Jen: How do you remember ideas that come to you at odd times?
Rebekah: Sometimes. Though I do try to make an effort to write them down when I can. I tend to get the best ideas when I am delirious from lack of sleep and I have to work early the next day or when I am driving.
Jen: Is there a genre you’d like to write? Is there one you’ll probably stay away from? Why?
Rebekah: I love paranormal/horror, and will likely stick close to those genres when possible, but it doesn’t mean that is all that I will write. I am not likely to write a contemporary romance, because I love the thrill of the supernatural or something that is too fantastical to happen in real life to make a story true escapism.
Jen: If this book was made into a movie, who do you see playing the main characters?
Rebekah: You know, I really haven’t thought about it because I don’t expect it to happen. LOL.
Jen: If you were able to travel in time, where would you go and what 3 things would you take with you?
Rebekah: Viking Age, because vikings. And I would bring a toothbrush, toothpaste, and neosporin.
Jen: What’s next for you?
Rebekah: I am currently about halfway through the third book in The Cursed Satyroi series, Satyr from the Shadows.
