Interview with Cleo Taurus

Welcome, Cleo Taurus!

 

1.  For those who might not be
familiar with you, would you be a dear and tell the readers a little about
yourself? How did you get your start in the writing business?
 
(CT) Actually,
I got my real start as a role player in a couple of Facebook groups. I honed my
writing skills there, but I have been writing stories and poems since I was a
child. I love to write, and having been so blessed to be given a chance by a
wonderful group of people, I am now happier than I ever was.

 

2.  All writers fear
the dreaded “block”. Please tell us how you handle it.
 
(CT) I walk away. I have to otherwise
all I do is sit there and stare at the computer, which only makes it worse. I
try to clear my mind, take a walk or something like that. Sometimes it helps;
sometimes I just have to wait till the story starts talking to me again.

 

 
3. Contrary to what some people envision about a romance
writer’s life, it’s not all glitz and glam. Well not for the majority of us.
With that bubble sadly busted, when you’re not writing, how to do you spend
your time?
 
(CT) I read a lot, every day as a matter of fact. I have three
wonderful grandkids I spend a lot of time with. I like to be outside when I
can. I love to take pictures and I watch a lot of History channel!

 

 
4. I know many writers, such as Dirk and myself, keep their
pastime/career a secret. Do those close to you know you write? If so, what are
their thoughts?
 
(CT) Very few know the real me, for the simple fact of the kind
of books I write. I have already had to deal with one judgmental fool; I don’t
want to have to do it again. However, having said that, those that do know what
I write are one hundred percent supportive!

 

 
5. Will you share with us your all time favorite authors? If
you’re like me, it’s a long list so give us your top ten.
 
(CT) Lol ok, let’s see if I can narrow it down. Well, Shayla
Black is my all time favorite author, and then Lora Leigh comes in a close
second. After that its Cherise Sinclair, Angel Payne, J.R. Ward, Laurell K.
Hamilton, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Maya Banks, and Lexi Blake.  Also, I do have to mention a couple of new
authors who will be doing big things in the future, Ava Snow, Harper Jewell and
Oliver Lixx.

 

  
6. If you could choose one book to go to the big screen,
yours or otherwise, which book would you choose and whom would you love see
casted in the parts?
 
 
(CT) If I were totally honest, I would like to see my series
Michael: the black room series made into a movie. There is an actor, Colin
Cunningham who I always imagined would be my Michael, and for Elizabeth it would
have to be Scarlett Johannsen, and for Michael’s true love, Kathleen, it would
be Amy Adams. 

 

 
7. Would you care to tell us what you’re working on now?
That is if it’s not top-secret information. If so, just whisper it in my ear. I
swear it’ll go no further.
 
(CT) The wonderful Ava Snow and I are working on a two part story
called Governmental affairs, about two men who find love, and I’m currently
working on a new series called the Spanking Bench Confessionals which I
guarantee will be hot! But the one I am most looking forward to is one story
called “The Arrangement. It is so completely different from anything I’ve ever
written or read, I can’t wait to share it with everyone!

 

  
8. Where can we find your stories and is there a particular
reading order?
 
(CT) With the Black Room series, there is a reading order,
Michael one, Michael two and Michael 3. The rest of my stories are in no
particular order, and you can find them on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and All
romance.
 
 

 

9. Would you please share how your present and future fans
can contact you?
 
(CT) Of course!

10. Before we conclude this enlightening interview, do you
have anything else you’d like to share? The stage is all yours.
 
(CT) I want to thank all the fans who have spent their hard
earned dollars on my stories. I write what I feel; some of my stories are from
my real life somehow. I have some wonderful friends who have helped me every
step of the way, given me guidance and held my hand when I was down. I write
what I would like to read, if I were the customer. I would love to hear from
fans, to let me know what they think! Thank you for allowing me a voice, I
can’t tell you how much that means to me.
 
 
Check out this hot number! 
 
 
Assistant extraordinaire, Gracie, is the perfect aide to two of the best lawyers in the state. 
 
Matthew and Malcom have everything money can buy, except that one special woman to share it with. 
 
When a surprising opportunity presents itself, will Gracie be brave enough to step fully into the world of kink and become the kind of woman the brothers could grow to love or will her own inadequacies squash any chance of happiness for all three involved?

Review of “Darkness Unmasked” – Keri Arthur

Half-werewolf, half-Aedh, Risa Jones is beginning to believe that the only way to find the keys she’s been searching for and save her friends is by dying. And when Wolfgang Schmidt, the lover of her boss at the vampire council, is found dead, her worst fears are confirmed. With the first portal of hell permanently open, the energies of the dark path are leaching into the world.

Searching for Schmidt’s killer and the keys at the same time, Risa and reaper Azriel track a shape-shifting spider spirit capable of changing her form into a seductive woman. But when they finally find the second key, the Aedh Lucian snatches it and disappears.

Risa is intent on finding Lucian and fighting him to the death—for in her mind, she knows that neither can remain while the other lives…

REVIEW

Only Keri could get me to love a story that involves a Jorōgumo, a spider/spirit that can change its appearance into that of a seductive woman. For a person who loathes the creepy crawler, I was cringing when her babies were literally raining down on Risa. Eeeek! 

For those who wonder how powerful Hunter is, you shall witness her wrath unleashed and believe me, she’s one scary chick! 

Update on the search for Dia’s murder: Risa will discover her mother’s killer and rest assured, vengeance will be delivered. 

As for the relationship of Azriel and Risa…… I look forward to see where book six takes us because the final chapters left me on edge. And that my fans is what makes for a great book and author!
