How would you describe yourself using only five words?
Michael Mandrake: Since I’m the muse I’ll say Introverted, queer, dramatic, formal, and hopeful
Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Michael Mandrake: P**n. I believe the wicked sister BLMorticia has rubbed off on me.
Name one thing readers would be surprised to know about you.
Michael Mandrake: Surprised to know, hmm… I don’t know. I’m pretty much an open book although I just said I’m introverted. Maybe the fact I do enjoy things like hard rock music and porn? *laughs*
How do you get yourself in the mood to write?
Michael Mandrake: I think Shar would say settling in to her chair at her table with a drink, most of the time Coca-cola, and her headphones on her ears to block out sound.
If someone hasn't read any of your work, what book would you recommend that they start with and why?
Michael Mandrake: Start with this one, I Like Em Pretty. I think it’s indicative of the Michael style of writing. Though the characters are Brits or stuffy as my past characters, I love mainstream fiction, focusing on the major plot other than the eroticism.
