**INTERVIEW With Author AC KATT**
Author of: "SHATTERED GLASS"
Geri: What inspires you the most to write?
AC Katt: Different things. I wrote my first book, THE SARRAN PLAGUE, because I wanted
to read science fiction, with a triad. My second book came from a phrase. Someone
asked me for a different idea on a book about a bear(gay lexicon for a hirsute
dominant gay men usually portrayed as a motorcycle or outdoorsy type). I came up
with the phrase 'Bear In Suit, casting the 'bear' as a gay, very well-to-do real
estate executive who wears Savile Row suits with Lobb shoes. He is a dominant,
but not your typical 'bear.' He appears as Donald K. Drummond in "A MATTER OF
TRUST." SHATTERED GLASS came from two different sources, a painting of a
young Syd Barrett from Pink Floyd, combined with the Bon Jovi song, 'Make A
Memory.' The lyrics of the song, plus the portrait of a young, troubled musician led
to the story of Liam and Milo.
Geri: Who is your favorite author?
AC Katt: I love Robin D. Owens, and Mercedes Lackey. In my own genre:Jade Buchanan,
Mychael Black, Chris Owen, Jody Payne, Alley Blue, and J.M. Snyder write
AC Katt: I devoured books whole as a child. I can still read one book a day, if I have the time.
Geri: If you were to write in a different genre, what would it be?
AC Katt: I'll always write some kind of romance. But I have been exploring different sub-
genres within the category.
Geri: Do you have current work in progress?
AC Katt: I just finished a re-write on "THE SARRAN PLAGUE" for re-release by
Captiva Press. I'm currently working on a sequel to :THE SARRAN PLAGUE"
tentatively titled 'Living With Syn.'
Geri: Thank you kindly for your time. I wish you much success!
AC Katt: You're welcome.
