Marie Treanor Tells All
September 17, 2007 | Interviews
ST: Hi, Marie Treanor, welcome and thank you for visiting with us this week.
MT: Thanks for having me – I’m really looking forward to it!
ST: Tell us about yourself.
MT: Well, I live in Scotland, I’m happily married and I have three children, the eldest about to begin High school, the youngest at Nursery. Oh yes, and I write romance, mostly paranormal and often futuristic.
ST: Your latest novel, DEVILISH FANTASY, looks to be an exciting, hot read. I especially like gapping at the cover.
Please tell us about it.
MT: Well, it’s more of a short story than a novel! My contribution to Changeling Press’s series of hot-and-short ESCAPES, it’s about Fiona, whose life isn’t going well. Neither is her holiday in the sun, so naturally she wishes for someone wicked to liven it up. What she gets is an actual devil, complete with horns and a forked tail, who turns out to be more fun than the rest of her life put together!
ST: How did you come up with the story line?
MT: It just popped into my head! Margaret, the owner of Changeling, challenged the authors to cheer up her winter with short, naughty stories about escaping to the sun. It seemed to work
ST: And where and can we buy DEVILISH FANTASY?
MT: At Changeling Press
ST: You have several other books that are out now. Please tell us about them and where we can buy them.
MT: All my currently available books are at Changeling Press (www.changelingpress.com) .
My newest one is actually Dragul in Darkness, the third in a trilogy about an ancient but secretive race of immortal shapeshifters. I’ve been really pleased with the reception of the first two, so I’ve got my fingers crossed for this one! With Dragul in Darkness I’ve tried to bring it all together on a high with hope for the future – since it’s all set in a rather scary world trying to recover from nuclear war. The war has changed much of humanity, producing powerful mutants who are feared as vampires, werewolves etc, and the Dragul books are all about how humanity, mutant and otherwise, deals with the intrusion of an even more powerful race into their world. All I’ll say here is that love shows the way.
Actually, the Dragul books grew out of my original series with Changeling, City of the Damned, which introduces the post-war world, struggling with nuclear winter. City of the Damned is where mutants have evolved, at first feared by the rest of the city, but gradually becoming the leaders who will save humanity.
Oh yes, and the children conceived in City of the Damned become heroes and heroines in the Dragul trilogy. Here’s the other covers;
MT: Too much information? Sorry, I get carried away. lol.
ST: Not at all! I’m intrigued. In fact I think my VISA card is going to get an airing this afternoon. lol.
Please join us tomorrow when Marie tell us about the Write Sid eof Life. Until then…
