Welcome to the May 02, 2010 edition of The Fox Hole. Today multi-published and elusive author Sascha Illyvich is my guest. So let’s get a little naughty, pour a cup of Joe, grab a sweet pastry, pull up a chair, and give Sascha a warm welcome. 😉
Welcome to ‘The Fox Hole’ Sascha it’s an honor and a privilege to have you as a guest. Could you start by telling my readers a little bit about yourself?
Sure. I’m an erotic romance author focusing primarily on Male dominant BDSM stories and ménage stories as well. I’ve been writing for the past ten years, made a lot of great contacts and now host my own radio show on Radio Dentata where we read excerpts of my work, interview today’s hottest authors and generally have a good time. We’re uncensored and adult but we’re not porn, though I got my start writing erotica. When I’m not writing, people can usually find me at one of two cigar shops in the SF/Bay Area or at my favorite cigar bar with a glass of wine or scotch in hand.
Wine and cigars, now that’s a pleasurable past time. Sascha have you always wanted to be a writer? If so when did you start writing?
About ten years ago I began seriously writing, but yes I’ve always wanted to write. Mistress Koi of http://very-koi.net guided me into erotica through ERWA and Scarlet Letters where I tried my hand at erotica. I discovered that my stories not only had a happy ending (heh heh heh) but tended to have a happily ever after, so I made the gradual move to erotic romance. .
Sounds like you were very lucky to have Mistress Koi as a mentor. So many writers don’t have that and her guidance seems to have been just what you needed. Speaking of guidance leads to inspiration. As a writer what inspires you?
Emotion. Music. The What If game. Desire to succeed.
So many of the writers I’ve interviewed are readers also and have been inspired by their favorite writers. Do you have any favorite writers?
”I hate my rhymes but hate everyone else’s more.” – Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park
That is a unique answer I’ve never had before. Often people forget musicians are writers as well creators of emotion and imagery with their words. I love to ask this next question because I feel it gives a bit of insight into who an author is. If you could live in any time or place–where and when would you choose?
Tough call. Probably a place where I could more easily be the bisexual, poly Alpha switch that I am?
That’s a fabulous answer that speaks volumes. A place where one can be themselves openly is a place we could all get behind. Now to ask you a question that is just me being me. Being a professional cook at one time, I love to find out what kind of foods my interviewees enjoys. Do you have a favorite food?
Good food. Eel, steak, is alcohol a food?
It can be depending on who you talk to. Any cook worth a damn definitely works it into recipes so I guess the answer is YES! 😀 Now that I’ve picked your brain, can you tell us about your latest work? Don’t hold back!
