Interview with Michael

Tell us about yourself,
What’s to tell? I’m a physician. Trained and studied at such
prestigious places as Harvard, John Hopkins, the Mayo Clinic. I’m proficient in
traditional medicine in some unorthodox methods my colleges might view unethical.
These include a variety of hands-on healing methods the ancients practiced.
What is it that you want,
but cannot have? Authors call this the conflict of the story.
The end to the age old war my brethren and I have been fighting
for close to 6,000 years. Although they, my brothers in arms, look forward to returning
to Tuat some day, I am very content to live out the remainder of my life in the
modern age. I’ve grown accustomed to the luxuries our culture provides and can no
longer see myself riding on a chariot or walking to my destinations. Air travel
and computer technology is great – at least where I am concerned.
What’s your internal limitation?
Meaning, what is it about you that makes it so you cannot do what it is you need
to do during this story?
I’m accustomed to utilizing all of my immortal abilities when
I am unfamiliar territory. Sadly, I am unable to use my special talents when I am
around Samantha (Sam) Waters, my current coma patient. My desire to help her weighs
heavy on my heart but without knowing what she is feeling, fearing, thinking; I’m
as lost as any other modern day human physician. There is no reason for her to remain
in the coma. I only hope my words will give her the strength she needs to return
to the present as an active “alive” member of our society. In the scheme
of things I wish to send a message to who ever did this to her… I will find you
and I will make you pay.
What inner doubt causes
you the most difficulty?
I guess that question would reflect my current situation with
my patient. I fear I will not be able to bring her out of her “sleep”
world. She is such a talented individual. I fear the world… and I will be lost without
What’s your external complication?
In the story world your author created, explain what it is you fear most.
There is always an external complication or two in V’s books.
That woman tends to put all of us in awkwardness situations but I think she’s once
again out done herself.
We have to contend with the on-going war with Set’s Legions and
now she’s added another twist to that story with Unab trying to over-throw Bagsu
for their leadership.
We all fear the dreaded doom that awaits us. When will the prophesized
avatars that hold the human race’s fate in their hands arrive?
On a more personal note, V’s put me in a delicate situation;
while I’m still very much involved with my colleague Dr. Susan Radcliff, V has introduced
me to Sam Waters, an investigative reporter for CNN. I have to admit I am attracted
not only to the predicament of pulling her out of the coma, but to her and her young
child who I discovered carries the aids virus. I’m determined to cure this child
and bring her mother back to the living.
Can I do it? I sincerely hope so.
Tell us about your significant
other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
I’ve never relied on a woman. My sole purpose in this life has
been to cure the ill and fight along side my brethren… until now and now that these
two (Sam and her child, Samantha have entered my world, I cannot see my life without
What would that person
say about you?
I really don’t know, but from her touch, I believe she’s interested.
At least I hope she is.
What is your family like?
What special skills do you rely on?
My ability to touch someone and know what they are thinking,
where they have been and what causes them pain and happiness.
If someone from your past
showed up, who would you NOT want it to be, and why?
Are you happy with the
way your story ended? Why or why not?
I doubt if any immortal, or mortal for that matter, has that
much control of the outcome in a story. We are merely players in the world our author
has put us in.

About the Writer

You have the length of
a tweet (140 characters) to describe yourself as a writer. Let’s see what you can
Story teller with a love for sharing her world.
Why did you choose to
write about this character?
I’ve always had a fondness for Michael even though he is far
from my usual bad-boy heroes. He’s kind, intelligent, direct and Gabriel’s confident.
True to his nature he is perhaps the most grounded Guardian of the seven. Where
others fly off the handle, Michael reins them in and keeps them focused. Now that
the wheels are turned and he is stripped of his unusual gifts can he remain that
What do you want to write
The next book in the series is Eternal Warriors staring the pretty
boy who spent the last fifty years living it up on the beaches of California.
Are any sequels planned
for this book?
The series entitled Sekhmet’s Guardians continues to grow. When
I first say the series I saw seven books, then eleven made their appearance. To
date, I’m taken notes on sixteen.
Is there anything you’d
like to say to your readers?
Like the majority of the PNRs (Paranormal Romances) you’ve read,
this series centers on a couple, but let me assure there is so much more to Sekhmet’s
Guardians. Every player, even minor characters who appear in the very first volume
(Eternal Lovers) come back to make additional appearances throughout the various
For the most part my stories focus on the heroine’s growth and
her struggles as she becomes bound to an immortal. Can you imagine what you would
do if you found yourself falling in love with an immortal warrior, one who has lived
for over six thousand years.

Interview with Bagsu, son of the High Priest Aapehti and Kheri

What is it that you want,
but cannot have? Authors call this the conflict of the story.
In the beginning Nefer-her; later my legs.
What’s your internal limitation?
Meaning, what is it about you that makes it so you cannot do what it is you need
to do during this story?
Nefer-her and I shared several years enjoying life together before
she officially became a woman and before she began her training as a priestess of
Isis. I should have married her then… before she joined the Vestal order, but
her duty, as was mine was elsewhere.
I’m not sure if it’s internal or not, but I’ll answer your question
as best as I can. Growing up I believed I was destined to follow in my father’s
footsteps; his choice, not mine. As I grew, I developed a need to be more and I
worked hard at it. My body developed and I strived to be everything everyone wanted
me to become, including myself. With my eyes cast in another direction, I had full
intent of joining the most precious school of fighters our world had to offer…
then the accident happened. My world came to a complete halt at that point.
What inner doubt causes
you the most difficulty?
I no longer have any doubt or expectations, but as a child and
young man I suppose that would be my naivety.
Tell us about your significant
other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
Nefer-her has long since turned to dust, although her memory
is never far from my thoughts. Not only was she physically beautiful, she was the
kindest most loving person I’ve ever met. She was my world and I will never have
What would that person
say about you?
She never was one to talk about other people, but knowing Nefer-her
as well as I did, I can only imagine what she would say to me and that would be
to forgive myself… but you know, that’s something I can’t do. Not now, not ever.
What is your family like?
The family I have today is much different than the one I grew
up with. Today, my brethren would be considered cold, vindictive and determined
on destroying the human race.
What special skills do
you rely on?
Everything Set granted me when he turned me into an immortal.

About the Writer

Why did you choose to
write about this character?
I had several books written and planned out for my series, Sekhmet’s
Guardians, long before Bagsu’s story came about. It was actually a critique partner
who casually made the suggestion I should share Bagsu’s complicated story with my
readers. After reviewing the pages upon pages of notes I had on him it became evident
there was way too much information to merely insert as back story into another book.
So Eternal Tuat – Bagsu’s story was born.
Was there anything you
discovered about this character that was a surprise to you?
Make no mistake about it, Bagsu is as evil as they come. He’s
killed, raped and plundered without a conscious thought. Seeing him as a happy well-adjusted
child who wouldn’t hurt a fly was quite a shocker. I’ve even grown to love what
he once was and like Jennifer, the leader of the Guardian’s Blades, I hope some
day he will find peace and redemption.
When you wrote about this
character, what made you the most happy? What made you the most sad?
It’s not uncommon for me to laugh or share a few tears when writing.
I laughed at Bagsu’s s innocence when he received his first kiss, I applauded his
heroics like I would any fine gentleman and I wept like a baby at his personal loss.
Are any sequels planned
for this book?
Eleven books were originally scheduled to make up the series,
Sekhmet’s Guardians. Three of those were released for publication in 2013. Three
more are scheduled for 2014 beginning with Bagsu’s story, this spring.
For those who are not familiar with the series, all of the books
with the exception of two historicals take place in modern times. Bagsu’s story
is the first of those two historicals.
It’s unusual combining modern and historicals in one series,
but as I mentioned above, there is a tremendous amount of back-story (6,000 years
to be exact) to cover, it only made sense to write them as historicals. Books 4
& 5 in the series both pick up at the ending of book 3, Eternal Blades. One
takes you back… on a journey with Bagsu (Book 4) while Eternal Life (Book 5) moves
forward in time with Michael, the Guardian’s physician.
Is there anything you’d
like to say to your readers?

VS Nelson

Perhaps just a bit more regarding the series if you have no objections.
The books are not limited to one couple or one romance. The characters from the
previous books in the series continue into the next, much like a night-time premium
channel series. More recently, I’ve heard reviewers compare to my books to Game
of Thrones. I believe this is because of the way they are written, not based on
content or time frame. Everyone of the books is considered a stand alone and for
the most part are written that way, but personally, I feel the reader would become
more invested in the cast of characters if they read them in order .
Kayelle, thank you so much for having Bagsu (and me) on Romance
Lives Forever. It’s one of my favorite blogs and I consider it an honor to be here.
Sincerely, V
