Featured Interview With Valerie Douglas aka V. J. Devereaux
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I'm a terminally cheerful optimist raised outside of Philadelphia, PA, now living in the 'wilds' of Ohio with four rescue cats, two rescue dogs – including a VERY energetic Belgian Malinois.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I've been telling stories for as long as I can remember, and don't remember when I started reading, but I was voracious. I wrote my first book at eight (got an A), wrote a bunch of books that weren't ready for prime time. Then one day a story idea just wouldn't let me go.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I have many authors I love to read I can't pick, ditto with genres and inspirations. I write fantasy – epic and historical primarily – action, mysteries, a western, horror, and romance. Under my pen name of V. J. Devereaux I write erotic romance – paranormal, menage, reverse harem, with an emphasis on complex plots.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
I'm currently at work on the fifth book of my epic fantasy series 'The Coming Storm', and it's intense. It takes place during the recovery from the terrible depradations of a dark wizard. His short reign wreaked havoc on the Kingdoms, so Alon – namesake to the current First of the Three – is set to hunt down the horrific creatures of borderlands in the place of the decimated Hunters. Years before, during the dark wizard's reign, the Wizards Collegium had been all but destroyed – save for the efforts of one young wizard, Misha. Alon discovers she's all grown up, and very well. When they discover that a new dark wizard now commands others, they're both called to defend the Kingdoms.
