Welcome back to the Rebel Elite Holiday Hop. Today, it's my pleasure to introduce DH Black.
ATW: Tell us a little about yourself. –
DH: DH Black writes erotic thrillers as well as gritty m/m pieces. His works tend to be in your face stories seen through the eyes of serial killers, arsonists and other every day monsters. The Softer Side of Edgy – a new line will give you m/m love with tragedy and angst.
ATW: When did you begin writing?
DH: When I was about three.
ATW: Can you tell us about your most recent publication?
DH: Tortured – from The Retribution Collection
TORTURED Are you afraid of the dark? Serial killers lurk among the living as well as the dead. For many of us we could never understand. Meet the fine officers who put their lives on the line every day in a dark and dangerous city. For one – secrets threaten everything he knows… Terror grips the city of New Orleans. The second in a series of gruesome, torture based murders occurs within two weeks of the first and the only connection is an email sent to both female victims’ husbands with two words – die, whore. Detectives Stephen Winters and Tremane Foster are assigned to the case. The crimes based on infidelity, there are few clues and the city is under siege as Mardi Gras looms around the corner. For Stephen, the case hits a little too close to home. Having found his ex-wife in bed with his best friend, he understands the burn of betrayal. As they delve deeper into the slaughters and additional damning information is uncovered about the secret lives of the victims, Stephen is reminded of his continued anguish. And just when the two detectives think they have a possible lead, insinuations are made about Stephen’s new wife, Samantha, and his partner of five years and Stephen is forced to face the very demon dwelling deep inside. Again. Would she be unfaithful? As the murders continue and the city is locked down, there’s a race against time to find the killer. Taunted by a past he can’t forget and growing evidence of a heated tryst, the killer strikes again and Stephen’s forced to make a choice that could change his life forever.
ATW: How did you get the idea for the book?
DH: I honestly get my ideas at night. I dream in color and half are murders and about creatures of the night.
ATW: What was the most challenging aspect of writing your novel?
DH: The grit and the murder scenes are tough. Getting into the mind of a killer is really draining but something I love immensely. There is nothing like trying to show you why the do what they do in a way the average reader almost feels sorry for them or at least emphasizes about their plight or predicament in life.
ATW: Which authors have inspired your writing?
DH: Dean Koontz, Steven King, Harlan Coben and Bentley Little
ATW: What projects are you currently working on?
DH: I am working on my first – The Softer Side of Edgy collection – Shock Treatment. This is about a man hospitalized in the fifties for being homosexual and the doctor destined to become a part of his life – at all costs.
