Author Interview: Faye Robertson & win BLOODLUST

Posted 17 August, 2012 by Lori @ Romancing the Dark Side in Author Interviews / 4 Comments

I’m pleased to welcome Faye Robertson, author of Bloodlust to the blog today. Faye is chatting about herself and her latest vampire romance release which is both fun and sexy, so let’s get right to the good stuff…

RTD: Name 3 things that would surprise your readers about you.

FR: Umm… I was born in Germany (Dad in the British Army). I have an honours degree in archaeology (specializing in deserted medieval villages). I have a level 85 Night Elf Druid in World of Warcraft. Not sure which of those is the most dull.

RTD: Bloodlust features a vampire with a unique fetish for nuns…what was the inspiration for his character?

FR: I love Angel and Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but they weren’t the inspiration as such. Part of my degree covered Cistercian monasteries and monks and nuns (it was more interesting than it sounds) and so I’ve always had an interest in cloistered societies. I think I was just fascinated with the idea of corruption—not only that Jasper turned the nuns, but that he took away their innocence.

RTD: What was your favorite chapter or scene to write in Bloodlust and why?

FR: The scene in the restaurant made me laugh, where they’re yelling insults at each other and everyone’s listening. I could see that very clearly in my head.

RTD: Is there a message in your novel that you want your readers to grasp?

FR: Don’t bite nuns! Um, no, seriously. No message. I’m not that deep.

RTD: Describe the relationship between Amabel and Jasper in under 140 characters.

FR: Vampire with a nun fetish gets his comeuppance.

RTD: What are some of your favorite elements of vampire lore that you incorporated in your book?

FR: I’m not sure there are any. Are there? I don’t read a lot of vampire fiction actually. There’s blood—lots of it—and biting. And Jasper can cast a kind of glamour thing—you know, the Alec Guinness “these are not the droids you are looking for” stuff.

RTD: Who would you cast as your hero and heroine if your book were to be ever made into a movie?

FR: Jude Law and Scarlett Johansson.

RTD: Do you have a specific place where do you feel most comfortable writing?

FR: A little nook in the corner of our computer room. We have six computers in the house, LOL! The room kind of resembles the space shuttle on a bad day.

RTD: Are you a fan of any series featuring vampires? If so, which one(s)?

FR: Charlaine Harris, mainly because I have an Eric Northman crush.

RTD: What book is currently on your nightstand?

FR: I’m re-reading the Fifty Shades trilogy. I have a Christian Grey crush. I have lots of crushes.

RTD: Can we expect more of Amabel and Jasper in the near future?

FR: No, that’s all folks. But I may well delve into the underworld again one day. Keep your eyes peeled.

Just for fun:

Favorite movie/TV vampire? Angel! Spike. No, umm, Blade. Ooh…

If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only pick one person, who would you want for company? Eric Northman. No, obviously I meant my darling hubby…

What’s your current guilty pleasure? Chocolate. Always.

Morning person or night owl? Morning, definitely. Although I am grumpy until I’ve had my latte.

Coffee or tea? See above.

Summer or Winter? Summer! Always. I hate the cold. Hence me moving to a sub-tropical part of the world.

RTD: Faye, thank you so much for taking the time to answer all my questions and congratulations on Bloodlust!

FR: And thanks very much for having me here!

It had to be nuns.

Some vampires had a thing for B+. Some preferred redheads. Others preferred blondes.

For Jasper, it had to be nuns–and he’s been regretting that since the day he bit Amabel de Woodville, almost two centuries ago.
She’d done something to him. Something that restored his conscience, pointed his moral compass straight north, and ended his career of seducing virgin nuns and killing as he pleased. But even worse–she’d gotten under his skin, and he hasn’t forgotten the green-eyed witch who’d been immune to his charms.

When Amabel ends up in his office, still as young as the day they’d met and seeking a charity sponsor, Jasper has the chance he’s ached for: to show her the pleasure that’s haunted her dreams for decades. He’s taken the virginity of a hundred nuns…but a vampire nun? That’s new.

And Jasper has always enjoyed a challenge.
