Fantasy & Fairytales- Day 2
Today’s guest is Dee Carney. She’s a fellow author over at Liquid Silver Books where Peerless is published.
I can tell you the exact moment I became fascinated with fantasy. The exact moment. Remember the old late sixties classic Barbarella ? Now don’t start giggling. Well, if you’ve started, stop. I’ll wait.
Ok. As I was saying, Barbarella…stop snickering! No, I don’t have a thing for bad Jane Fonda acting or funky quasi-futuristic costumes. What made me stop and go whoa at my young age, was this guy. Remember him?
That’s Pygar, the blind angel. How sexy is that? A winged man. And one who needs—needs—a good woman at his side. (You know, in retrospect, I don’t think I could have written anything but erotic. Even as a youngster, I was a little too fast for my own good. lol) Seeing him for the first time sealed the deal for me on fantasy men.
I adore a hero who exists just outside of our modern sensibilities. Bring ‘em on, as damaged as you can make them—preferably emotionally damaged. (Back to that needing a good woman at his side thing.) I cut my teeth on reading Dragonlance books, then for some reason I can’t recall, moved on to Koontz and King before finally landing on Lori Foster and Alyson Kent. You might say to yourself that those are totally different sets of genres there, but not really…
Dragonlance where heroes wield swords and battle otherworldly creatures. Not a lot of steamy romance going on, true, but there’s always some romance in there. The masters of horror while managing to scare the pants off of us always managed to bring supernatural forces into their plots and characters…oh wait. That’s kind of the definition of fantasy, huh? As for Foster and Kent, they write about fantasy men. Need I say more?
The heroes of my stories have some element about them that exists just outside of our modern sensibilities. Right back to my love of Pygar days. In my upcoming release from Loose Id, Interdependence, twin brothers Jonah and Elijah Ballard battle the forces of an internal darkness consuming them with every day that passes. In my recent release from Liquid Silver Books, Deeper than the Ocean, my virgin merman is on a quest to avenge his mother’s murder. My current work-in-progress is the love story of Poseidon, god of the sea, and Medusa, damned Gorgon.
Can you see a little Dragonlance, King and Foster in those themes? I can.
You tell me when you first got hooked on fantasy. I’d love to hear from you.
All the best,
