My sincere apologies to Raine. This post was supposed to go live yesterday, and due to a blog glitch, that didn’t happen.
- What’s the strangest thing that’s inspired one of your stories?
RD: A science article on what would happen if gamma rays from deep space hit earth and what would happen to the planet. *grins* that kicked off my Space Pirate Futuristic/Sci Fi story I am slowly working on.
- Tell us about your latest book.
RD: My latest story is a free read I had in an anthology a bunch of us indie published. Moonlight Masquerade is only one of two M/M Stories I wrote and it tells the tale of a man who works long hours, has a secret admirer and just about hates Valentine’s Day. Needless to say the days leading up to Valentine’s Day leave Skylar in a knot.
- Is there a plot you’ve always wanted to write but haven’t been able to yet?
RD: I always wanted to do a sweeping fantasy story complete with mages, elves and magic. J Hoping to do that in the future.
- What books do you have available now (title and publisher)?
RD: Currently I have six books out with Secret Cravings Publishing. Five are my Devon Falls Series (Paranormal Erotic Romance) and one stand alone title.
The Devon Falls Series includes:
1- Sticky Magic
2- Red Hot Magic
3- Fiery Magic
4- Haunting Magic
5- Moonlight & Magic
They can be read as a stand alone book but I have a sub-plot that winds its way through the five books so I would read them in order.
My stand alone book available as well is called Fantasies Unbound, paranormal erotic romance.
- What books do you have coming soon?
RD: I am currently working on formatting Moonlight Masquerade for Amazon, Smashwords and Are then I am cleaning up a short story for submission as well. I am hoping to get back into writing now that things have calmed down here at home.
- What’s your favorite thing to drink while you’re writing?
RD: It’s coffee in the morning, and then I switch to green tea or Pepsi in the afternoon, water in evening.
- What genre are most of your stories? Why did you choose that genre?
RD: Paranormal Erotic Romance. I love the fluidness of the paranormal genre. You can have shifters, mages, vampires and elves run amuck and I love the genre.
- Which author have you always wanted to meet and why?
RD: If I could, I would love to meet Nora Roberts or Sherryl Woods. They create some amazing stories out there and I love reading their books, sometimes multiple times.

Author Note: Moonlight Masquerade was formally in the anthology, On Valentine’s Day
It’s Valentine’s weekend and for Skylar Everclear, it’s a holiday he wishes he could forget.Mysterious roses keep popping up on his doorstep. No idea what is going, a little disturbed by this secret admirer, he tries to forget it all since he just got rid of the latest line of loser boyfriends and just wants to do his job at the local bakery. But when he meets his new neighbor, Marc Douglas, he finds himself drawn to the quiet young man even as he tries to not let his libido take over. But on Valentine’s Day, a mysterious rose again pops up with a note to meet his admirer that night. Will Skylar take a chance that love is right there waiting for him?
Skylar opened his door and groaned. Another damn rose was lying on his doormat. It made him wary that he had no idea who was doing this but every freaking night this week he either came home to a rose on his porch or opened the door to one. It was enough to feel creeped out now. He looked around, seeing no one, shut the door with a soft click and leaned against the door in despair. It has been three months since he threw out his lover, Saul, after catching him fucking some other guy after one of the numerous block parties the neighborhood held in the summer and autumn months and frankly he didn’t know what to do anymore. All he did was work, sleep and work some more. He always seemed to pick those guys who are bound to break his heart.
“I must have ‘Loser’ tattooed on my forehead the last few years.” Skylar muttered to himself. “Why can’t I find a nice guy for once? One who won’t lie, cheat or steal and break my heart by telling me I wasn’t good enough for them.” Sighing, Skylar grabbed his backpack, keys and cell phone as he hurried to get ready for work. As a baker in the local bakery, his day started earlier than many others. With Valentine’s around the corner, he was working longer than normal hours. He was in the bakery at four in the morning and not coming home till almost five at night some days. It made for hellish days but he enjoyed what he did. Plus he enjoyed seeing people enjoy his desserts and hey, the paycheck after days like this made a nice chunk of change in his bank account. His mind on what items he needed to get done for the next few days, he opened then shut his door, locked it and made sure to pick up the rose before he stepped all over it, crushing the fragile blooms. As he turned and walked to his car, he wondered who his mysterious admirer was.
