My Guest, Mr. Silver!
First, my DW, Lila is at the SOS Aloha Blog today — giving away 2 copies of A MIDNIGHT DANCE! If you don’t have a copy yet, pop on over there and leave a comment.
Secondly, we have another great interview for you. Please join me in welcoming Mr. Silver. Mr. Silver can you tell us who you’re married to and what she writes?
Mr. Silver: I’m married to Eve Silver and her latest release, BODY OF SIN, is the fourth in her dark, gritty urban fantasy/paranormal romance Otherkin/Sins series.
Mr. Silver: Father. Art Director. Sculptor. Gamer. Kayaker. Fisherman. Runner. Bodybuilder. Animal lover. Road tripper. Comic geek. Action-figure geek. Conan fan. Avid movie-watcher.
Mr. DiPasqua: Sounds like you’re a fun guy! Where did you and your wife meet? What convinced you that she was THE ONE?
Mr. Silver: We met at college. Her brains and her looks convinced me she was THE ONE. We are complete opposites and, in this case, opposites attract. We communicated well. Eve is a very caring, kind, loving and supportive person who would do anything for me. We’re both the same that way. I would do anything for her. And she likes my sense of humor.
Mr. Silver: I was at work. When she called to tell me, I thought she was having a heart attack or an asthma attack because she was gasping and I couldn’t understand a word she was saying. Now that I think about it, she sounded like a girl at a rock concert who’s just met a mega-star and is speechless. My reaction was very excited and extremely happy and proud.
Mr. Silver: I haven’t had the opportunity to read BODY OF SIN yet, but all her heroes are just like me, except a little more well-spoken and many have supernatural powers that I do not. And they have a six-pack. I only have a four-pack. Still working on the last two.
Mr. Silver: My wife always says I was (am) most like Prince Charming. That’s why I love her so much. That’s only until I make her angry, then I become most like Prince, the family pet (to the doghouse).
Mr. Silver: None of the above. I think of “fetch”. That’s what you get for having two grown sons who eat you out of house and home and want you to go fetch more groceries.
Mr. Silver: I’ve known my wife for 27 years; we’ve been married for 23. Being married to a romance author means you need lots of patience because the business is like a roller coaster. There are ups and downs and sometimes it’s rough to be an artist. When Eve’s under deadline, I pick up the slack—grocery shopping, laundry, take care of kids and dogs. She does the same for me when I’m under deadline. I’m always here for her to bounce off ideas or to vent, usually while we’re walking the dogs. I make sure she leaves her cave and gets some physical activity because when she’s on deadline, she often forgets to do that for herself. Her deadlines are good for my sculpting and gaming, though. No interruptions.
Mr. Silver: I just say, “Me,” or “We do a lot of experimenting.” (This time I’m the guy smirking because it’s such a ridiculous question.)
Mr. Silver: I asked Eve for her opinion on this, and she said, “Maybe Dagan from SINS OF THE HEART (book 1 in the Otherkin/Sins series) because he isn’t much into conversations; he just does what he needs to be done. He’s competent, strong, loyal, brave. The strong, silent type.”
Mr. Silver: She’s afraid of spiders. She shot a Beretta, M4 and M249SAW to do research for her books. Her favorite game is BOGGLE. She loves to kayak. She has two degrees. She taught human anatomy for many years. She hates to shop for clothes, and I’m usually the one who has to pick stuff for her because she can’t be bothered (which is a good thing because she tends to dress like one of the fishermen from the Deadliest Catch if I leave her to her own devices—in her words, she “has the fashion sense of a snail.”) [Eve interjecting here to say this is all true, especially the fashion and clothes stuff.]
Mr. Silver: From the back cover:
Once the favorite son of the Lord of the Underworld, Lokan Krayl held enviable privileges and powers. Powers that led to a devastating betrayal—murder.
Resurrected by his immortal brothers, Lokan is still trapped in purgatory. He has no way to contact his family. He has no answers. In order to find the truth about his death and who killed him, he must escape his prison. And there’s only one way out: through the twelve gates of his eternal enemy, Osiris.
But Lokan has help. Bryn Carr, the woman who duped him once before, is his beautiful yet unwanted guide. She’s been sent by his brothers to aid him. She’s his last hope. Lokan must place his fate—and that of the mortal and immortal worlds—in the hands of the one woman he can never trust.
