About the Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon lives a life of extraordinary danger... as does any woman with three sons, a husband, a menagerie of pets and a collection of swords that all of the above have a fixation on. But when not running interference (or dashing off to the emergency room), she's found chained to her computer where she likes to play with all her imaginary friends. With more than ten million copies of her books in print in 26 countries, she certainly has many friends to play with.
Hi Sherrilyn! Welcome to Tink's Place! Why don't you tell us about yourself?
Thanks for having me. There's not much to tell really. I'm a death-defying, immortal astronaut who slays demons...
Oh wait, those are characters from my various series. Never mind...
LOL, who does want to ride a space ship or hot motorcycle... as well as being a death defying immortal demon slayer?
Some authors say it's the story begging to be told or a character that drives the need to write. What drives your need to write? When do you like to write, morning, noon, midnight?
Whenever and wherever I have a chance. And yes, the people in the stories are what drive me to write.
Your latest release, No Mercy, is part The Dark Hunters Series. Would you like to tell us a little about the series?
They're immortal slayers who sold their souls to the Greek goddess Artemis for a single act of vengeance against their enemies who killed them. In exchange, they spend eternity battling the Daimons who were created by the god Apollo and protecting mankind from those who would prey on them.
Oh, I'm rubbing my hands together, as my readers know, I love a book that includes a taste of mythology!!
When you're not working on your next book, who are some of the author's you enjoy? What's your favorite all-time read?
I read tons of authors. Kevin J. Anderson. Jim Butcher. Shannon Butcher. Stephanie Laurens.
My all time fave read is The Canterbury Tales by Chaucer.
Is there a character you feel close to, maybe part of yourself has seeped into?
I never seep into the characters and I feel close to all of them. They're like my children.
Who's your favorite hero?
I don't have one. Sorry.
Hey, that's okay, I fall a little for every hero.
Would you like to tell us what's next for you? Another Dark Hunter book?
After No Mercy, the next book out is Invincible which is part two of the Chronicles of Nick and then Born of Shadows which is another League novel.
Oh, I can't wait, I LOVE your League Series!
Now fun stuff. If you were stranded on a desert island, what five things would you want to be stranded with you?
1. My hubby
2. My children
3. Enough of their friends to keep them happy
4. A computer with never ending electricity
5. My pets
Awww, all great things and people to have surrounding you, not only on a desert island, but everywhere, everyday!!
