An Interview with Adrianne Brennan and A Drawing!
Please welcome Adrianne Brennan to my blog today!
Alisha: Can you tell us a little bit about your childhood? Favorite memories?
Adrianne:I spent a good deal of my childhood reading, and later on writing as well. In addition, my dad raised me on science fiction and fantasy novels, television, and movies. I wrote simple computer games, hung out with my friends, and watched a lot of Nickelodeon. I can't say that my childhood was typical, but it wasn't too unusual, either. I don't have any favorite memories, however. I'd have to say with total honesty that the best times of my place have been post-high school--heck, post-college even! :)
Alisha: Tell us about the hero and heroine in your latest release.
Adrianne: This is tough to answer, as my latest release isn't a romance, per se. *grin* But I'll give it a shot. The Oath series is about a young woman named Lila who is seeking self-knowledge and wisdom. She's a devotee of the Greek god Dionysus and has an interest in magick. She accepts an invite from a secret order devoted to sex magick and esoteric philosophy, and each book deals with a different stage in her initiation into this order. Three gorgeous men are there to assist her, and the Hierophant--her initiator--is really the one who is pretty damned sexy. They're all sexy though. ;) In the second book, there's a menage between her and two of the men.
Alisha: If you were granted three wishes by a genie, what would they be?
Adrianne: 1)Have the ability to travel through time and space and visit parallel universes; 2) Financial independence and 3) Immortality :D
Alisha: If you could go anywhere to tomorrow, where would you go?
Adrianne: I'd love to visit London one of these days, but given the weather we've had here in Boston, I'm going to say someplace very warm and tropical. I could use a vacation to a nice beach somewhere!
Alisha: If you could see anyone tomorrow (dead or alive), who would it be?
Adrianne: A few people whom I would love to meet, either alive or dead: Jim Morrison, the Dalai Lama, Jack Parsons, John Dee, the members of the rock band Rush, and Madeleine L'Engle.
Alisha: Ooooh, yes, I'd love to have a long talk with Jim. What a trip that would be!If you could choose six people to spend one week on a desert island, who would it be and why?
Adrianne: Real or fictional? *grin* Fictional, I'd go with the current Doctor and the current Master from Doctor Who--if I can prevent them from trying to kill each other. :P After that, four more people would just increase the body count. But there'd be ample opportunity for a hot threesome! :D
Alisha: What word or phrase tingles in all the right places for you?
Adrianne: Decadent dark chocolate. Ooh yeah.
In regards to anything sexual...it would have to be said in the right way by the right person. :)
Alisha: If you had one day to spoil yourself, what would you do?
Adrianne: Go to a spa and get a facial, a massage, a pedicure and a manicure. I'd walk along a nice beach and enjoy the warmth of the sun. I'd eat a gourmet vegan meal with some excellent, excellent wine and a delicious chocolate dessert. Afterwards, a hot tub at night, either screened or outdoors.
I think I'm bit of a sensualist at heart!
Alisha: What a perfect day! Can I join you? If you could change one incident in your life, what would it be and how would you change it?
Adrianne: Honestly, I wouldn't want to change a thing. I am who I am today out of both the good and the bad that has happened in my life.
Alisha: What’s the sexiest thing a man has ever done for you or said to you or both?
Adrianne: Took me into his office after-hours and....*grin* You can extrapolate from there.
