S. R. Laubrea

Biography

S. R. Laubrea loves mixing Science Fiction with Fantasy. That's her niche; and if she had the choice to write something else, it would be Fantasy mixed with Science Fiction. Any author that combines staple genres knows that the possibilities between both can be endless, and they often are.

She has a strong love of culture, and often delves into the backgrounds, histories, colloquialisms, and behaviours of other peoples to glean ideas for the fictional races featured in her stories.

Complexity is a fierce and compelling mechanism for Shiri as an author. If it's not convoluted enough, she won't write it; if it's not willing to explore any standing concepts, ideas, philosophies, or get sprinkled with a touch of myth, she will not do it. That's part of why she chose Scifi-Fatasy as her niche.

She is elated to be an author on Smashwords.

Smashwords Interview

If you were a Knight of the Round Table...
They would call me Sir Lauby the Breasted. My mount would be a golden-hoofed, rainbow zebra with bat wings, a peacock's tail, and the horns of a sheep and a gaur. My weapon would be a special lance called 'The Infinite' - and it would have the ability to summon vicious alien hoards to maim and impregnate my foes.

And that's why you should buy my books.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wanted to be a Niche-Market Author - you know, not writing for masses of people. And I figured that self-publishing was a good way to get my foot in the door as regards making a 'niche.' I don't expect my stories to appeal to everyone. But if you're looking for a bold adventure into an unknown world, to be immersed in rich fictional cultures, and discover new places, then I'm right up your alley.

Outside of that, I don't think the current trends in popular stories are swinging in my direction. There's a lot of YA going around, and I want to appeal to a more 'mature' audience. That said, I do handle mature themes and topics, but I don't write graphic, vivid, and viscerally descriptive erotica. So the 'Mature content' label is more so that my stories aren't afraid to openly talk about dicks, balls, breasts, and vaginas when the characters start heading that direction. I imagine most people don't want their Teens and Kids reading that. :D

Mokallai is Destiny: the dilapidated, desperate personage of the binding power of Fate. He wants nothing more than to return to his former glory; to relive the old days where his every desire came true. But Dyiij, a being with power surpassing Mokallai's, won't have that. As the dichotomy of Freedom and Fate begin to collide the question becomes: Who can escape their destiny?
