Hopefully you've already heard about Iron Rods, the best little fictional strip club for women in Texas. If you haven't let me fill you in.
Iron Rods is the first book in a series about a rundown strip club for women in Austin. At the beginning of Iron Rods, you learn that the club is a bone of contention between the owner, Austinite and half-crazy old man, Lyle Truitt and his estranged New Yorker son, Bennett Truitt. Suffering from neglect and mismanagement, the club is in bad shape, including the shoddy dancers. Then Tatum Reynolds, a down-on-her-luck University of Texas graduate with a Master of Dance degree, takes over and begins its slow return to its former glory.
In book one, several strippers, past and new, make an appearance. I'd like to give you an opportunity to meet one of them – my favorite – the Masked Man.
The Masked Man is exactly that. He auditions for a place on the stripper team wearing a mask and never takes it off. The only things Tatum knows about the mystery man is that his real name is Mack Garner, he speaks with a Scottish accent and he has to keep his true identity under wraps.


Interviewer: Hello Mack, if indeed that is your real name. Congratulations on being selected as one of the strippers for the new and improved Iron Rods.
Mack: Thank ye. And Mack is my real name. My accent may be as fake as a three dollar bill, but I carry it off well enough. Dinna ye think?
Interviewer wipes mouth from the pooling drool: Yes. Absolutely. Nothing like a good looking man with a Scottish accent.
Mack: The ladies seem to like it well enough. The more they like what they see and hear, the more they like to tip. Ye ken?
Interviewer: Oh. I ken, alright. So just between us and everyone reading this blog, why the need for all the secrecy? I mean, really. It's not like you're an FBI agent or a guy under the Witness Protection Program, right?
Mack: *chuckles* I ken what you're doing, Lass, and it won't work. What I will tell ye is that I have a job where my work as a stripper would be frowned upon. And I dinna want to lose my job.
Interviewer: Fair enough. Then let's talk about how you got into stripping. Have you done it long?
Mack: No, not at all. I've never stripped before, except maybe for a few lasses I dated. And then it was before I took them in my arms and had the kind of sex with them that curled their toes. But I have danced since I was a kid looking for something to do with my time. I grew up with my granddad, Jamie McKenzie, who truly is from Scotland, and I got into dancing after school to keep myself out of trouble until ol' Jamie could come fetch me.
Interviewer: No stripper experience? That's surprising. Didn't Tatum Reynolds, the manager of Iron Rods, make you the lead stripper?
Mack: Aye. She did. I'm as stunned as you. Clearly the woman has a keen eye.
Interviewer *swallows hard*: It wouldn't take a keen eye to see you're an extremely handsome man with talent. So, um, do you have a girlfriend? Any women in your life?
Mack: No girlfriend. The only woman in my life is my boss and she about drives me crazy. She has a stick up her backside that's hard to get past. I wish she would lighten up a bit. Get off my back and into my bed.
Interviewer: Excuse me? I didn't hear that last part.
Mack: I said I wish she would get off my back and smile a bit. The woman never smiles.
Interviewer: Now that you've had a chance to meet the other strippers, what do you think of the "Men of Iron Rods"?
Mack: For the most part, they're a fine group of fellas. There is one though that seems to have a pretty fair-sized chip on his shoulder. Not sure what his problem is – yet. But I have a feeling we may bump heads if he doesna watch his step.
Interviewer: Interesting. What's this man's name?
Mack: I dinna know what his real name is. Dinna care, really. His stage name is Archangel. Thinks he's the bloody star of the show. But we all know who that is, now don't we?
Interviewer *nodding furiously*: Yes we do. Speaking of stage name, what's yours?
Mack: Ack, well, we're still figuring that out. Tatum has been saying that the hot thing going on these days is BDSM. What the bloody hell is BDSM?
Interviewer: Does she mean Bondage, Domination, Sadism and Masochism?
Mack: Well, well now. I dinna ken for sure. Is that what that means? I had no bloody idea. Verra interesting.
Interviewer: Tatum is right, you know. BDSM is extremely popular these days. I'm curious to find out what she has in mind.
Mack: You and me both, Lass. You and me both.
Interviewer: That about does it for our time today. Anything you want to say before we wrap up this interview?
Mack: Aye. My story, Masked Secrets, is the second book in Brenna Zinn's Strip Club series. If you liked Iron Rods, book one. You're gonna love Masked Secrets.

Author Bio

Brenna Zinn 

I remember reading about Texas in an Illinois grade school and thinking I probably would never see the great state where real cowboys ride their horses to work every day and everyone wears western hats and boots. Then again, I never dreamed I would elope in Gibraltar with a Navy man who hailed from the Lone Star state. But here I am, smack dab in the middle of Texas, still married to the same wonderful man and boasting not only the greatest daughter on the planet, but three dogs that are as big as long horns.
In between grade school and now, my journey through life has taken me all over the United States, as well as many places throughout the world. Using my travel experience as a guide and peppering in interesting characters I've met along the way, I love nothing better than weaving tales of romance and leaving readers yearning for adventures of their own.
