Interview with Rhys Ethan

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The prospect of coffee and another page written on my, any, book
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I watch loads, like LOADS, of TV shows, where I learn how to make more realistic characters and catch some acting lessons in the process.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do. It was directly influenced by Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling. It was about two twin brothers, who were called in a magic school. Nothing special, but I still read it sometimes and see where I started from. Now that I come to think of it, I do have a story in my plans which involves twin brothers and magic. I guess some things haunt you until they are told the way they were meant to be told.
Describe your desk
Desk? What is that? I haven't seen or owned one for the better of three years.
My current work-space is very bouncy and littered with candy-bar wrappers, chip-bags and soda stains. Yes, my desk is my bed. Oh well!
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Newsletter, recommendations or by suggestion. Once a month, on payday, I will buy a chunk of ebooks. More than I could ever possibly read.
What do you read for pleasure?
All kinds of books, mainly in my genre, which is fantasy, but I do enjoy the occasional chick-lit, fiction and sci-fi. As long as the story intrigues me, I'm willing to give it a try.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I love my kindle touch and my kindle fire. They are my travel essentials.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
It's pouring out all those feelings that keep me up at night and expressing my thoughts through my characters that keeps me going and will keep me going for a very long time.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are THE most important basis for me. Without them I'm just a writer. They inspire me, motivate me and encourage me. Damn, my second book, The Little Mermaid and the Dry Lands (Queerky Tales #2) was written as a direct response to a fan. That's how much my fans mean to me.
What are you working on next?
I'm currently working on a very cheeky gay, erotic fiction novel and an adult fantasy romance book. I'm also trying to plan out the the sequels for my latest book A Siren's Song and work on completing the Queerky Tales series, which still has three fairy tales to go.
