Blog Bites with Venetia Green


Another fantastic author sharing a bite with us, Venetia Green.

venetiaI 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!

Current reading: Hilary Mantell’s Wolf Hall. It’s my duty as a historical author.ahawkenslaved_msr

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.

    What a stunning cover your story has, Venetia. It has me all gooey thinking about LadyHawke, the movie.

    Good luck with your writing. It sounds fabulous.
