Author Spotlights Tracy Kitts

Today's Spotlight shines on Author extraordinaire Tracy Kitts. If you like Paranormal it gets no better than this. If your new to the genre I can't think of a better author to check out.
Here is a taste of her latest work.

Katherine has had a hard time finding work, mostly because she’s a vampire. Turns out, people aren’t clamoring to work with the undead. She goes to the massive theme park, Notte Oscura, as a last resort. What Katherine doesn’t realize is, there’s a lot more waiting for her than just a job.

It was late January and there was still a chill in the air, even in Florida. I’m not sure if it was the warmth coming from inside or fate that made me walk into the main arena that night. The air was filled with the scents of cotton candy and lots of liquor. Needless to say, Notte Oscura was for the twenty-one and over crowd.

I hadn’t taken in any of the attractions on my previous visits, so I had no idea what I was walking into, or why most of the women in the crowd reeked of sexual arousal. I heard the crackle of electricity, and then I saw him. He was well over six feet tall and stood directly in the center of the stage. He was stripped to the waist and though he man had many scars, they did not distract from his beauty. His head was down and mounds of long, black hair trailed over his chest. It looked like the beginning of a live S&M show. His arms were bound to what appeared to be enormous antennas, the way he was turned showed off the well sculpted muscles of his arms. It also revealed what looked like a completely metallic right elbow. He twitched slightly and lightning arched between the polls and from numerous other places around the stage. As the flashes of light and crackle of electricity came to a peak, he tossed back his hair and with a primal yell, broke free from his chains.

He smiled. The crowd went wild and in that instant, looking at that smile, I knew I was lost. The lightning stopped and with a dramatic flair the tall man slipped into a cloak.

“My name is Frank, and I’ll be your host this evening. Welcome to Notte Oscura.”

The crowd cheered again and I took an involuntary step forward. Though he used his hair to cover the right side of his face, I could tell he had another scar there. I was trying to get a better look when someone pinched my ass. I can think of few things that piss me off more. I reached behind, using my superior speed to grab the pincher by the wrist. I was a bit surprised to feel fur, but that didn’t stop me. I twisted the arm with a violence born of the frustration of my night and locked his elbow in place, taking the werewolf to the floor with a pain-filled howl. This all happened just as Frank said, “Please allow me to introduce…” His words trailed off as the spotlight hit us. “Our new werewolf tamer!”

Frank began to clap and the crowd soon joined him.

“You’re hurting my arm,” the werewolf growled, though he was careful to keep his voice fairly low. Obviously, he didn’t want the crowd to hear.

“I should break it,” I said, pushing down harder to emphasize my words.

He yelped again, but I let him up. He ran onto the stage, snarling and growling on all-fours. With a gesture from Frank, I followed.

I was able to corner this very busy lady for an few moments to answer a few questions. So grab a seat and meet Tracy Kitts.
Do you do anything to get you into the zone to write?
Sometimes I do and other times, I have to take advantage of the few minutes I have. Ha. Ha. If I have the opportunity, I love to listen to some music before I start to write. Most days though, all it takes is a good cup of coffee.

 Which authors inspire your writing?
 I hope I pick up a little bit from every great writer I read. Honestly, there is no one writer that inspires me. It’s a love of storytelling that keeps me going. When I read a great book, regardless of the author or genre, I think to myself, “I should get started on my next book!”

What is your favorite book, character and why?
 It’s probably a cliché by now to say so, but my favorite character and book (series) of all time is Harry Potter. It was a story I could get into with characters that I still love. Plus, it stretched my imagination, like yoga for my creativity.

Do you prefer to write erotic or sweet?
I never thought I would, but I DO prefer erotic romance. I try to make my love scenes honest, frank, and still sexy. I don’t like to read or write straight up vulgarity. It all depends on the circumstances and the characters personality as to what language is used over all.

Which famous person, living or dead, are you drawn to?
 Dracula, the real one. I just can’t help myself.
I have to agree with you on this one, Vlad Tepes was a fascinating man who lived in tumultuous times.

Where do you see yourself in five years?
In five years, I see myself still writing, still loving it, and making enough money to pay off my bills. Ha. Ha. Hey, you gotta dream big, right?

Finish this sentence: I know I’ve made it when_______?
I know I’ve made it when people hear “paranormal romance” and think “Tracey H. Kitts.”

What advice would you give aspiring writers?
You can do it! Keep a positive attitude and be polite to those who offer advice, even if you feel it is bad advice. Always be a professional.

What do you see yourself writing in the future?
I see myself writing lots more kick-ass paranormal romance. It’s what I love.
 And I love reading them.
If you could have one superpower what would it be and why?
 I love this question! I have spent many hours pondering this myself. I think (after much debate) that I would want some sort of Dr. Xavier mind powers. That’s the best way to sum it up.

What time of the day are you at your best to write?
 Any time I get peace and quiet, honestly. I don’t have a preference of time. I’ve written some great scenes in the middle of the night as well as first thing in the morning.

And now for something completely different…

What do you look at first with an attractive man or woman, face, body or smile?  First glance, it’s the body (over all), second glance, the smile, third, hands. Then, I’ll probably look back at the smile if he has nice lips.

Explain your perfect day.
 Easy. Getting to finish writing a great book, spend time with people I love (including my dog), and lose 5 pounds. LOL The only thing that could make that better is maybe at the end of the day leaving for a well-deserved vacation.

What is the most decadent desert you can’t say no to?
Gooey chocolate brownies.

Do you have a favorite holiday what is it and what makes it special to you?
 I have always loved Halloween. I get to dress up and have fun without anyone calling me a freak for my choice of clothing. There’s candy, parties, and scary movies. Plus, you don’t have to worry about buying anyone a gift or cooking a turkey. What’s not to love?
 My favorite also, I love everything about it and the spooky movies are just the topper on a perfect holiday.
What key words describe you best? Fiery, fun-loving and warped.
 Thank you so much for being on my blog I loved getting to know you and I'm sure my readers are just as thrilled as I am.
