Interview with Dylan Holt

This interview is designed for your hero or heroine to tell readers about himself or herself. 

Tell us about yourself, please.
I come from a long line of succubus/incubi, and history hasn't always painted my kind in the best light, nor has it gotten things completely accurate. I'm not a "Demon", but I'm not human either, even though I do resemble one. An extremely attractive one. <Shrugs and grins smugly>. I know that makes me sound egotistical, but it's part of how I'm able to draw humans to me.
So, I'm guessing you're wondering if part of what you've heard is true. Do I enter into dreams and tempt humans with erotic suggestions? Absolutely! It is my nature after all. The sexier the dreams, the more potent the energy for me to feed from.
Now don't look at me like that. Before you go judging me, I must point out that this isn't entirely one-sided. I don't drain the life force of anyone I'm involved with. I do take what I require, but I also give them something in return. The inspiration to pursue the thing they desire most.
As far as me in general, I'm a bit of a wanderer, able to adapt to any situation. A true "Jack of All Trades". I'm a whiz with modern technology, which comes in handy. For a long time I thought I was happy moving from town to town, person to person, and then I encountered Elise Bennette. That's when everything changed. She made me want to set down roots and get lost in her dreams.
What can you not do (but need to do) during this story?
I'm much more than I appear. I need to be honest with Elise, and show her the real me, but I fear once she learns all the details, it will drive her away.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
Trusting that I can find someone to love and accept me for what I am. Until I met Elise, I seemed to only  find two types of people. Those who thought I was a freak, when they discovered what I'm able to do, and others who were drawn to me because of what makes me unique.
Tell us about your significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
From the first time I encountered Elise Bennette I knew she was special. She is a strong, smart, beautiful woman full of many wondrous dreams. She just needed someone to believe in her when others had let her down.
What would that person say about you?
I'm reliable and a hard worker. She tries to pretend she doesn't like me, but I know better. Even if I didn't possess the abilities I do, she's made it more than obvious that she's interested in me.
What special skills do you rely on?
When humans let down their guard, I can look in, examine their dreams. Dreams give a lot away about a person. It shows their hopes and fears, but I am respectful about what I discover.
I also have the ability to enhance dreams, make them seem real. It helps to entice the human I'm pursuing to keep dreaming. If things progress to an intimate relationship, even better, but I don't generally stick around after the relationship is consummated.  
Why are you happy (or not happy) with the way your story ended?
You'll have to read the story to learn mine and Elise's fate.

About the Writer

K.T. Black often mixes genres when creating her romance stories. Whether her (F/F or F/M) stories are filled with witches or regular people, they frequently include mystery/suspense, sci-fi, fantasy or paranormal elements. She never limits the direction her imagination takes her when telling a good story.
When she's not writing, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, going to movies, cooking, traveling, playing video games, and meeting interesting/eccentric people--many of whom help color the worlds she creates while writing.
What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?
Mostly finishing it. My life turned upside down a few months ago. I'm still trying to get back to my regular writing routine.
Why did you choose this character for the interview today?
I felt I needed to elaborate a bit more about Dylan's background. What better way than to have him tell you first hand.
When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you?
Dylan started out as a regular guy, but as usual, I ended up taking a paranormal turn with him. This often happens. I think I'm in control and it's the characters that show me what to write.
Are any sequels planned for this book?
This is a stand alone, but I am considering doing a series based around it once I finish with another series I'm currently working on. I write both F/F and F/M and see some interesting potential with this plot line.
Why should readers who haven't picked up one of your books before give this one a try?
            I believe that my stories read like you're watching a movie. That you, as the reader, will be completely immersed and caught up in the energy of the story.
Is there anything you'd like to say to your readers?
I appreciate each and every one of you who have taken a chance to delve into the world of my imagination. I hope you enjoy reading what I write as much as I enjoy writing it.
