Helen-Ophelia’s Dogs

The menagerie in Book 4 continues to grow. Joining the German shepherd, Capuchin monkey, Grey parrot & 3 cats are 2 fussy, mouthy toy poodles named Dior and Chanel.

They belong to the Mayor’s spoiled egocentric wife, Helen-Ophelia, who is all about luxury & hedonism.

So this of course means I have to work this annoying little pair into a few scenes, extending previously-written chapters & preventing me from carrying the story on with any new chapters for awhile.

But this addition will only enrich the story. I’m already envisioning poor zoophobic Kaiser being pursued by the 2 poodles and the Capuchin monkey straddling his back!

Meet Paranormal Romance Author V.K. TRITSCHLER!

This month’s featured author is Australian V.K. Tritschler. Read the interview below to learn about this creator of paranormal romance!

1:.What do you enjoy most about writing paranormal romance?

I love that I can be unique, and that there are no limitations to my worlds or my characters. They can be, or do, anything imaginable. What a fanastic thing to be able to work with that blank canvas!

2. Where do you draw your inspiration from?

Everywhere – and I am not saying that lightly. Sometimes I will see a picture, a film, hear a story or read a headline and it pull me down a path of a story. A friend of mine has a fabulous game that helps generate plots and stories, and I have used that for several of my books. But its just about enjoying the possibilities.

3. How would you describe your writing style?

I love to play with emotions, and so I hope that when my readers pick up my books that they can recognise that some character development across all my genres regardless of the context that those characters are in. But when I sit to write, I do not plan things out particularly, I like to let my stories reveal themselves as I go and the same with my characters.

4. What can we expect from you in the future?

I have a new book out in October, The Heart of Nowhere, which is the second of a trilogy. I also have an audiobook of my Vital Impetus book coming out which I am very excited about as it is a new concept for me to have audiobooks. And then I have several other fun and quirky tales coming with some strong female leads and some new magical events!

Thanks for having me!
