I’ve had the wonderful fortune of interviewing K. A. M’Lady, today!
Who has been the biggest influence on your writing? How so?
I believe I’ve always had an inclination to be a writer. For some it’s more than just doing, it’s soul deep. Every book I’ve ever read, every author, poet, inspires me. Words have always been so much easier to write than say. Sometimes you’ll read a classic and be inspired all over again. The world, people, the things that keeping the cog rolling, human nature and all its frailties and inhumanities, beauties and glories – seeing life in all its perspectives. It’s truly a wondrous and moving thing that breathes and when you stop and try to capture it, it can be magical. And the beauty is that everyone sees it differently. That’s when the pages come alive.
If you were going to slash two (or more) of your favorite characters from any book, film, or TV show, who would it be, why, and what’s their favorite position?
Well, I’m not a big fan of TV – just don’t have a lot of time to sit around and watch it – I’d rather watch a movie. I am hooked on Sons of Anarchy, however. Total killer season end. Let’s see – based on that, hubby and I like Happy – freaking awesome character. Love to hate Gemma too (total cutthroat survival instincts.) If they got hooked up together…wow! Someone would be tied up, hanging like a chained monkey from a chandelier. And Happy would definitely be happy…
Pitch yourself to shiny, new readers in thirty words or less.
Sensual, dark erotica author with wry sense of humor and edginess. Likes rain storms, and Alpha males. Fangs acceptable. Sometimes blood is spilled. And the Light always conquers the darkness.
Tell me about your groupies – what have been your favorite fan moments?
It’s still so weird to fathom the word fan when I’m such a book junkie myself. But, I love to receive emails from readers thanking me for the joyful time they spent reading one of my books. There is no better feeling in the world knowing that you brought someone the small gift of escape and happiness from a world that you created.
Every author has pitfalls in their writing process. Describe one of yours, and what you do to dig out of it.
Commas. Definitely those little half curled arms dangling at the end of those paused words. Bain of my existence. Time and experience makes us better writers. Having the best editors is also a blessing. I’d be lost without mine. You’d never catch a breath – sentences would just run on and on and on.
My mother always joked about her special place in Hell – just punishments for guilty pleasures. What guilty pleasures will send you to your special place in Hell?
Let’s see. Due to foodlike allergies thanks to migraines I don’t get to eat anything I like anymore. So, no chocolate, pizza, or caffeine. I do have shoe issues. What girl doesn’t? Hubby and I have a deal for Christmas and birthdays. He’s to find the ugliest pair of shoes he can and buy them for me. This is on the guarantee that I will like them. Twenty-three years later and I still love him and the shoes….

Kuthar looked around his mate, Cyn’s human apartment and cringed at the chaos. It was in shambles; clothes, shoes and discarded remnants of everyday life strewn everywhere. Ooen ambled to the oversized gold couch and lazily collapsed into its plush cushions. His blue skin vibrant against the rusty hue.
The throaty, muffled hum began the instant Ooen sat. He felt it against the back of his hip.
Quirking a brow at his mate Cyn, who stood motionless beside Kuthar, flush with color staining her cheeks, Ooen reached between the cushions and pulled out a large, darkblue vibrator, rotating
Reaching for his mates, Ooen stated, “We can do so much more for you than anything battery powered, love.”

In Vranthia, The Wasting has claimed the lives of women, children, and warriors alike; many have fallen to this great plague. No one is safe from its darkness. Recklessness and subterfuge walk hand and hand amongst the Elders, as they seek a means to rule. With ferocity they intend to control the meek, with gluttony they will bleed the docile; destroying all who stand in their way.
But The Wasting can no longer be contained. What began as a dark elixir, stoked in the veins of hatred and revenge, from an enemy long thought dead, has spread beyond the great halls of the Vranthian Kingdom. And no one is certain when or where its darkness will end. Is the mystery and magic of the trion enough to save this great nation?
Kantella Balacjek is a lot of things, but a traitor to his people he is not. He needs to find the source of the darkness to prove his innocence, but the evidence against him grows almost daily. Lies told and enemies made have a way of shielding the truth from the light, even when the truth rages in the blood. Death and her harbinger await him. Will he succumb, or will The Wasting consume them all?
The Darengy grave-warriors have always walked in the shadows. But even they have their outcasts, the creatures that they fear. Onya knows what it is to be different, to be alone with the dying. The shadows and darkness hold their whispers and their pleas. Only she has the power to choose who crosses over. Enslaved by the resistance, she has learned the capacity for evil. Does her blood hold the power to seal the fate of many nations? Does she the courage to change that fate?
Mercenary, loner, wanderer – Traegar is one of the first among the Elders. He is a maker and destroyer of life. Time has jaded him. His people’s level of debauchery and power disgusts him. When the Great Wars ended he chose to walk away and hunt what he despises and loves the most; burying the pieces within him instead. Now his kindred are dying in droves. The Elders have grown unruly, and unstable in their bid for domination. In his dreams the whispers of the ancients fire his blood with the heat of the mating.
Will finding his trion redeem his faith in his people? Will their belief in each other be enough to set them all free?
Strong are the Binds of Love, Faith and Magic.
