Another fantastic author sharing a bite with us, Venetia Green.
I write: medieval historical romance with a dash of erotica and a good seasoning of Vikings. Throw in a bit of plague and madness, and that’s about it. Shortly though, I’m going to try my fingers at more ‘serious’ historical fiction; the question is – am I allowed to keep the naughty bits?
I’m from: Perth, WA
I procrastinate by: knitting. It’s therapy.
Favourite author: Kim Wilkins, an awesome Aussie author with a penchant for cussing. Read her advice for writers on her blog. Brilliant!
Favourite book as a child: Lloyd Alexander’s Chronicles of Prydain, C.S. Lewis’s Narnia stories, and a tome on Viking mythology. I was destined for medievaldom from the age of 7.
Favourite movie: Umm, probably Gladiator, although I do love The Princess Bride and my recent favourite is the BBC mini-series North and South. Richard Armitage can scowl at me any day.
Plotter or panster: plot, plot, plot.
Latest project: Just finishing a Viking-themed erotic romance. Next is my serious project, a re-imagining of Chaucer’s ‘The Wife of Bath’. (If anyone has encountered her in The Canterbury Tales, you’ll know that this was one medieval tart who seriously got around!)
I am insanely, ecstatically pleased to announce that first contracted novel has a release date. A Hawk Enslaved will be available through Ellora’s Cave and all good e-book vendors on the 23rd May 2013!

Thank you Venetia, it was a pleasure. I’m a huge fan of Gladiator and especially Princess Bride too.
