Exit Stage Left Interview

What are your favorite TV shows?
Answer: Hope you have a bit of time. This includes streaming series as well as network shows. Here  it  goes: The Great British Baking show, Sherlock Holmes, Stranger Things, any Marvel series and movies as I’m a huge cinephile (movie buff) plus Spiderman is my ultimate favorite with Tom Holland portraying, Batman (only with Christian Bale), The Crown, The Windsor’s, Troy, Black Mirror, the original hospital drama ER, Friends, Highlander (yes I know that one’s old), Tru Blood, Blood Ties, Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Moonlight (1 season wonder on CBS…again a vampire based show), Game of
Thrones, Star Trek (Old school!)…I do believe that’s just the tip of the iceberg…literally. 

What is your favorite meal?
Answer: Any salmon dish! Whether it be salmon chowder, fillet, deep fried, or sautéed, even smoked. Love it! Love angel hair pasta with salmon in a light cream sauce, so divine. 

If you were to write a series of novels, what would it be about?
Answer: Well considering the fact that this blog tour is in direct relation to the second in
 the series for this story, I’m quite secure in saying it would be about vampires. Even at this time, I’m currently working on a totally different story, with a few occasional cross-over characters, it too has supernatural elements and characters in it. However, my life time obsession has been and always will be vampires.

Is there a writer you idolize? If so who?
Answer: The first author that left a mark on my life was Judy Blume with her prepubescent coming of age story of a tween girl, “Are you there God, it’s me Margaret”. Next and most significantly would be the honorable and very distinguished Annie Rice. One does not simply read her words, you are drawn into the lives, the very make-up of her characters, whether good or evil, and you dwell there until the last word. Meeting her in person is on my bucket list. I save Stephenie Meyer of “Twilight” fame for the last…as she truly inspired me to put pen-to-paper, creating my own world and breathing life into the characters that had taken up residence in my heart and soul for so many years.  

How did you come up for the title of this book?
Answer: Well as the characters were the first to show up in my head many years ago, as I performed on stage, it was only natural to place them on a stage. A well-known master illusionist once said, “Reality is just an illusion on stage.” Then, on a cold winter’s day it came to me, that if all of reality is a just an illusion on stage, well then, may your stage become reality. Hence the name was born, The Stage. 


  1. Thanks Bookaholic for host this next stop of The Exit Stage Left Blog Tour. One correction on the interview: Anne Rice, not Annie...never Annie, always Anne Rice. Thanks!
