The Shorties had the great opportunity to interview one of our favorite authors, Tiffany Reisz!!! *fan girl(s) down*

Interview

Grace
Sum up The Queen in five words.
The eighth Original Sinners book.
(Sorry, I’m a smartass).

If you were stranded on an island with one of your characters, who would you pick and why?
Kingsley because of all the Sinners, he’s the one who has the strongest survival skills. He could keep me alive. And bang me. But also keep me alive.

This is the first BDSM series I have read that tied so strongly with the Bible.  Was this your intention from the beginning?  How much of the Bible stories did you research and how much was from your personal knowledge?
I started writing THE SIREN while I was attending seminary if that answers your question.

It’s Halloween at the 8th Circle. What will Nora and Kingsley wear? (We know Soren wouldn’t dress up)
That’s where you’re wrong. Of course Soren would dress up. If you read “Christmas in Suite 37A,” last year’s Original Sinners Christmas story, you’ll hear from Griffin about a wild Halloween party where Kingsley dressed like a priest, Soren dressed like Kingsley, Nora dressed like Slash and Sheridan dressed like Axl Rose.

​Tiffany I still am thinking about The Queen and cannot wait to purchase it so I can re-read it over and over again.  I still cannot believe that this is the “last book”, yup, I put it in quotes because in my heart, I know you may give us some more eventually down the line.  Anywho, here goes:
Although Original Sinners may be done, are you looking into possibly writing a book from any of the secondary characters down the road?
It’s always possible but currently not anything I want to do or plan to do. I’d love to write more Original Sinners books eventually but The Virgin and The Queen were the two hardest most frustrating novels I’ve ever written. I need a break for awhile to write outside this universe. Someday I’ll come back to it with a fresh brain and new ideas.

What are you working on currently?
I just completed POINSETTIA, this year’s Original Sinners Christmas story, told from the point-of-view of Magdalena, Soren’s friend and teacher from his seminary days. She taught him how to be a good sadist. This story takes place when Soren is 20 and you’ll be able to read it for free this December.

YaYa
Do you have any plans to write another Rom-Com?
Yes! I love writing rom-coms. I had the most fun writing “Seize the Night,” my modern gender-swapped very silly Romeo & Juliet retelling.

Will any of your leading characters become parents in the future?
None of them that aren’t currently parents.

Who is going to win the World Series?
The real winner of every baseball game is the women who get to see those glorious baseball butts in those tight tight pants.

Tammy
Are any scenes or moments in the series from personal experiences in and out of the bedroom, or playroom or a Rolls Royce?
Maybe……..

How do you choose your characters names and looks and status?
Names are very important. Names are everything. I spend a lot of time thinking and pondering and looking at baby name books and lists until I find the perfect name. You sort of get a vague image of a character in your head and as you write, that character turns into a person you can see as if he or she is standing in front of you.

Is there anything that you wished you would have added to any of the books, or a character trait, or scene?
There were a few scenes I wish I could have written. I did write the “Kingsley and Nora get stoned in a bathtub” scene for The Queen but edited it out.

All the characters take a vacation together, where do they go and what 2 toys do they bring with them?
They would all go to the south of France and visit Nico and his vineyard. Kingsley would never leave him without a flogger. Nora must have her crop. Soren loves his razor blades.

Is there anything that you want us to know about the series? Hidden secrets?
I almost gave Soren a pet dog. It was my way of working through my intense desire to own an Irish deerhound. But I didn’t do it. I edited that out too.

What is the strangest thing a fan has asked you?
Did you base the series on Depeche Mode songs? Answer? No. Maybe Pet Shop Boys songs, but no Depeche Mode. Don’t be ridiculous.

What is the strangest thing a fan has given you?
That’s a hard one. I get a lot of weird gifts. But the funniest gift was when a fan from Kentucky came to see me in NYC and asked if I wanted anything from Kentucky. I asked for Grippo’s which is a kind of local potato chip and she actually brought them. A fan also brought me an Oreo Blizzard to a signing and God, I love that woman.

What is the strangest thing a fan has shown you?
A “fan’ sent me naked pictures of herself which is not cool. Absolutely not cool. You do  not ever send unsolicited naked pictures to anyone, not even the erotica author. I have the internet. I can find my own porn.
