Q & A with Madelyn Porter!



Tell us about your newest release.

Let the Wild Out is a paranormal erotic ménage contemporary romance. Heroine Rachel Dunne has a secret. One that will ensure her a seat on the shifter throne—a position of power she doesn’t want and a headache she doesn’t need. Thinking she’s safe from the politics of her people by living in America, she’s not expecting to come face to face with one of the clan chiefs in search of a mate. Only, with shifter royalty there’s a catch—one queen to two opposing clan chiefs. It’s hard enough fighting off the advances of one sizzling hot piece of alpha shifter man-flesh, but can she possibly resist two?


Can you tell us a little about your favorite scene in the story?

It’s hard to pick just one. Overall, I love the way these three people make it work. It’s not just about the erotic (though that is fun and plenty in the book) but it’s about the relationships and making an impossible royal custom work in a modern day romance. Sharing goes against shifter nature, but that is what these two heroes are forced to do.


When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

Since I can remember.


How long have you been writing?http://img1.blogblog.com/img/icon18_wrench_allbkg.png

I remember my first real attempt being in 8th grade. The teacher freaked out because I had murder in my story. This was back in the early 90s.


Do you have an interesting writing quirk or habit?

Coffee. I have to write with coffee.


What was one of the most surprising things you learned as a published author?

You have to be your own advocate. Even if you hire publicists and agents to represent you, you have to know what they’re doing so you can ensure you’re being represented the way you want to be. You have to take your career into your own hands. It’s not just about writing the books. To be a professional author, you have to treat yourself like a business.


What authors or friends influenced you in helping you become a writer?

I read a lot of classics – Jane Austen, Bronte, Steinbeck.



What does your family think about your career as a published author?

They’re very supportive.



Besides writing, what other interests do you have?

I love to watch movies, especially B horror movies that are more laughable than scary. I’m also slightly addicted to the Syfy Channel (except when they put on wrestling).



Can you tell us about what’s coming up next for you writing wise?

I currently have another title out Warrior Women: Rite of Passion. I hope to continue that series as well as publish several new books as well. If readers like Let the Wild Out and want more, I’d be interested in revisiting that shifter world.
