Michele Hauf Interview & Giveaway

*Contest is closed*

Day 6 brings us to an interview with Michele Hauf!

Thank you so much for joining me for my Giveaway-A-Day Countdown to My 25th Birthday Bash! It's so great to have you here!

When did you get started writing?

I started in the early 90s.

Who are your favorite authors?

Anne Rice, Jim Butcher, Kresley Cole, Alexandre Dumas, Emma Holly, Lynn Kurland, so many more!

What first got you interested in vampires? Are they your favorite paranormal beings?

The first book I wrote, DARK RAPTURE, was vampires. I'm not sure what stirred my initial interest, but perhaps it was the remake of Dark Shadows that was on TV in the early 90s. They probably are my fav paranormal being, with faeries being a close second.


Can you tell us about Her Vampire Husband?

You can read the first chapter and blurb at my website ( Basically it is an arranged marriage story, pitting werewolves against vampires. Such fun!

What was your favorite scene to write?

Any scene with the heroine, Blu. She just sort of took over the scenes and made it really easy to get to know her.


Can you tell us a little bit about Rogue Angel: The Bone Conjurer and writing under your Alex Archer pseudonym?

The Bone Conjurer is an action/adventure story in the continuing Rogue Angel series. Think Indiana Jones meets Lara Croft meets Joan of Arc. The heroine owns Joan of Arc's sword, and whenever she needs it, she simply calls it out of the 'otherwhere' and into her grasp. She gets into a lot of sticky situations, so the sword comes in handy. I am one of a handful of authors who write for the series.

Do you have a favorite character? If so, why?

Probably Severo, who was the werewolf hero of MOON KISSED. He's just such a big lovable lug.

What are you working on now?

I'm soon to start FOREVER VAMPIRE, which features a vampire hero who grew up in Faery (because his father promised his first born to a faery; poor guy), and now is trying to make his way in the mortal realm. This is the first story where I've actually paired a vampire to another vampire. Usually I do opposites. But it will be fun to explore how the hero (who has prejudice against vampires) learns to love the heroine (who is vampire).

Since this is an event is in celebration of my birthday, I was wondering what is your best birthday memory?

My mom used to be a cake decorator. I remember the year she made individual cakes for me and my party guests (I was probably 8). Each cake was a barbie doll! The cake part was the skirt, with a small doll stuck in the top. It was pretty cool.

Do you have any upcoming appearances?

You'll find me online this year. Check my blog if I have any book signings (none at the moment), or plan to do a conference.

Where else can we find you? (websites, blog, facebook, twitter, etc.)

Thank you so much for joining us today! It's been such fun having you!

Guess what everyone, the fun isn't over! Michele was kind enough to offer to give away a copy of Rogue Angel: The Bone Conjurer which is written under the pseudonym Alex Archer!

This giveaway is open to US residents only. This contest is open until May 31st.
