Today I’d like to welcome a special guest to my blog, author Robyn Porter (Who writes as RG Porter). Welcome Robyn!
You’ve just released a new novella, Destiny’s Light. Can you tell us a little about it?
Sure! This book follows the muse Entrupe (muse of music) as she is finally given a task by her father Zeus that will allow her to walk among mankind. Once there, she is tricked by Hades and loses her memory. The story follows her journey to find out who she is while trying to complete the quest she was sent on. They journey even takes our hero and heroine into the depths of the underworld.
Vampires, werewolves, Greek muses … obviously you are as in love with the paranormal as I am! A woman after my own heart. Tell me, what draws you to the weird and wonderful world of the supernatural?
What doesn’t draw me? The paranormal is fascinating to me because there are no boundaries that cannot be crossed. So much out there is unknown that the sky (and beyond) is limitless. I love delving into the dark and mysterious, to see what can be peeled back from the layers of reality. It is quite invigorating to do.
The dark and mysterious … yes, please! Have you ever had an “other worldly” experience?
I have. Once, long ago, when I was a child I was at a friend’s house. I felt like something was close and told her that the area felt off. Next thing I knew every window in the house began to bang and knock even though we were all alone. Glancing at the windows the same face was sitting there staring in at us. You could tell it wasn’t a mask, but a real figure, yet the eyes seemed devoid of life. It was quite bizarre at the time and my friend was freaked out the rest of the day. Me, I was fascinated.
Wow! That is super creepy and really cool at the same time. Obviously you were born to write about the paranormal.
I’m not a fan of the conventional superhero. I adore Saleene from Underworld as well as Hugh Jackman’s version of Van Helsing. Yes, I still go towards the strange and paranormal in those as well. Who’s your favorite superhero?
Mmmmm …. Oh, I’m sorry. I was stuck on Hugh Jackman.
What’s your favorite dessert?
I’m not a huge fan of dessert, but I do like plain chocolate ice cream. Although, I have this fantastic recipe for a peanut butter treat that is to die for.
What are your feelings on dragons?
Love them. I have a book I’ll be re-releasing that is a dragon shifter come next year. I think dragons are mystical and sacred. I am hoping to write more about them down the line. Besides, they are majestic, fearsome and magical, what’s not to love?
SQUEE! That sounds like my kind of book!
Well hubby is a brit so I can’t help but like the Scots in kilts. I think the fact they wear them and have no qualms about it shows just how strong they are. Besides, most can look quite nice in them.
Oh, true that!
What’s next on the menu for R.G. Porter? (Either for dinner, or writing, either way. Lol)
Dinner can be all over the place, and I don’t always know what I’m doing until the last minute. Writing wise, I have a new horror novel coming out Dec 15th titled When Darkness Falls. It also has supernatural/paranormal elements, but it is quite different than most of what I’ve written. Think of it as a merger between Soul Survivors and Ghost Voyage (If you’ve seen/heard of those movies). After that I have another fantasy novel coming out end of December. It is the first in my Guardian’s of Nature series and is titled Keepers of Water. There are going to be 4 novels in that series and I absolutely adore the storyline. I also have more horrors on the horizon. Some with zombies some with more darker paranormal happenings. On top of that there are the last 2 books in my Darkness Unleashed series releasing first part of next year.
Believe it or not, I’ve not only heard of Ghost Voyage, I’ve seen it and loved it. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for your When Darkness Falls!
Thanks, Robyn for stopping by and chatting with me.
