WELCOME ONE AND ALL TO THE CRYPT OF MORBIUS. A PLACE WHERE ANYTHING GOES AND NOTHING LEGAL IS OFF LIMITS.
ALL I ASK IS THAT YOU LEAVE YOUR INHIBITIONS (AND CLOTHES IF YOU SO DESIRE) AT THE DOOR, STEP INSIDE AND ENJOY THE MANY WONDERFUL SIGHTS, GUARDED BY THE DARKEST OF SOULS, HELD WITHIN
Once again my creatures of the night, the doorway to The Crypt has been opened, and yet another victim has entered for us to feast on and today our feast is the exceptional Iris Deorre.
First of all I would
just like to say welcome to The Crypt Iris and thank you for stopping by today.
So why don’t
you introduce yourself to my creatures of the night and tell us a little about
Before I am a writer I
am a Mum, which does take up a lot of my time. I also work freelance during the
day so I’m like a woman on something from the minute I wake up to the minute I
put my head down to sleep. My day goes something like this, 6am I’m up going
over my writing; I’m always working on something. 7am hit my step machine for
half an hour. 7:30 wake up the little girl to get ready for school. Then it’s
time to hit the shower, downstairs for packed lunches and breakfast. Next we
jump into the car and hit the morning traffic! Then I’m working for the rest of
the day, 5:30 pick up time for my little girl, tea, homework, bed, for her and
then it’s upstairs to write; which I’ll do until about midnight. That about
sums up my life cycle really; we do occasionally take a holiday here and there.
When did you
first begin to write? Was there a specific moment or did something happen to
make you think ‘I could be a writer’?
I was seventeen when I
began to write. I was going through a very bad time as teenagers do. I remember
just lying on my bed with thoughts just spinning around my head not knowing
what to do. It was in that moment I grabbed a piece of paper and began to
write. I wrote a story about a teenager struggling with teenage life and trying
to find her way through that trying time. It really helped me get out of the
funk I was in. Later in my life I wrote short stories for my own entertainment
then one day I decided to send one of my short stories to a women’s magazine. I
didn’t even know I had been published until a cheque for £50 dropped through the
letter box. There wasn’t a word from the publisher except for that cheque. When
I tried to search for my story in the magazine it was no where to be found
until three months later something amazing happened. I was visiting my Nan one afternoon and she told me she had a surprise for
me, one of the members of her church handed her a magazine that had been
donated. She said that she had recognised the name and wondered if it was me.
Yes it was me! I was over the moon that I finally got to see my story in print.
What are you
currently working on? Would you mind giving the readers a quick synopsis in 100
words or less?
I’m currently working
on the second book to A New Breed, which is called A New Breed (The birth)
A child is about to be
born with a very special gift. It’s Jacks job, who is a werewolf to stop those
that want the child for evil. Even though Jack believes he has everything under
control, nothing can prepare him for what happens as soon as the baby, Isis is
born. Twists and turns, magic and time travel take Jack and Aiden to a
dimension they’ve never been before.
Where do you
draw your inspiration for your stories, characters and settings?
I’m a reader and a lot
of ideas come from the books I read. I do quite a bit of research on the web.
You will also find me at the library doing research. When I visit new places I
always take a note book with me. I study the way other people talk, their mannerism.
I also draw from my own experiences, how I experience life through my eyes and
how I overcome obstacles gives inspiration to write.
Is there one
particular genre you prefer writing in and is there a genre you would never
attempt and if so why?
I love writing erotic
horror, paranormal it’s just so me to be honest. I’m the type of person who
loves to push boundaries and take things a little step further. The genre I
would never attempt to write is science fiction. Things like Star Trek would
never work for me. I wouldn’t even know where or how to begin to describe the
settings of that world. Visually it’s great but I’m not sure I’d be able to
bring science fiction to life on paper and that probably scares me the most.
weren’t a writer/ couldn’t write anymore what would you do?
If I wasn’t a writer I
would be a singer. I think I have a good pair of lungs and can sing a note or
two. I had a few singing lessons two years ago and once brought me daughter
along. When she heard me sing she broke into tears, it really touched her. But
I’m not one of those Xfactor shows, that just isn’t me. I love my privacy. I used to sing in the church choir, something
I didn’t really like as it was forced upon me – hence the rebellion – lol!No seriously though I don’t think I would
survive not being a writer. It’s who I am really.
If you could
become a member of the opposite sex for 24 hours what would be the first thing
you would do?
Look at how big my
wand is! Only kidding. I’d probably move my very heavy couch and put it where I
want it. Seeing how I’m not strong enough to do it myself. Honestly I’ve never
really thought so this is just a random answer.
fantasy creature/being do you like the most?
I like fairies, Tooth
Fairy (giggle). I also love Tinkerbell the fairy/pixie in Peterpan. The little
fairy that loved Peterpan and got a little jealous when he took his attention
away from her. They are small, cute and magical and sometimes mischievous.We saw Peterpan at the theatre once and I
guess I loved the magical innocence of the fairy.
If you could
be your favourite fantasy figure what would be the first thing you would do?
I would fly into my daughter
room and collect her tooth that fell out recently and replace it with a coin
then sprinkle some fairy dust for sweet dreams. (I’ll let you on in a secret; I
do that already except for the fairy dust) Then I would fly across the
neighbourhood and collect all teeth that had come out that day and replace them
with coins or is it notes these days? The freedom of being able to fly and be
that tiny would be a wonderful thing!
you the most?
CLOWNS!Big red nose, permanent smile (Freaky) you
just never know what they’re feel because they are always smiling, big red
floppy shoes and the ridiculous outfit, never mind the big red hair (Shivers).
Those dudes freak me out big time. I just don’t like them one bit.
Ahhh, too many, not
fair!Shawshank redemption, Green mile
both based on Novellas by the mighty Stephen King. But if I have to choose the
movie that made me go out and buy the fan t-shirt and watch it more than once
and even went out to buy the DVD that would be....Drum roll.... The Matrix. I
loved, loved this movie it was crazy. Only the first one though. The amazing
moves from Neo, the Oracle, Morpheus, just the sound of the names excites me.
The best part is when Neo begins to believe in himself and realises he doesn’t
need all the dramatics to defeat the agents.
you have ever seen?
Get this – Matrix Revolutions
– seriously after the great beginning it should’ve only got better right?
Wrong. I guess having high expectations only made it worse. This whole hype
ended up into a big ball of nothing. I could no longer keep track of it and
towards the end when this guy the so called creator of the Matrix babbles on
about nothing (Yawn) for a while in the movie, it lost me there and then (The
sound of Crickets!). I just didn’t get
it I was crushed and fan shirt found its place in the bin! Not really, it’s
just had too many washes.
Many but the book that
has stayed with me has to be Wuthering heights. It was a book that drew me in,
messed with my emotions to the point of making me angry. Never has a book made
such an impression on me. I guess the dark character Heathcliff made me so
angry that the book was a hard to put down. I also like that fact that it was
written by a woman in a time that wouldn’t have considered or taken a woman
writer seriously. Wuthering heights for me just brings the same universal question
that we all seek, acceptance and acknowledgement. Everyone always asks the same
thing whether it’s by their actions or none action and that is, Do you see me?
Did you know I existed? Wuthering heights shows this behaviour so well it’s
frightening. Because at the end of it all, all they all ever wanted was to be loved.
When you go
shopping what is the one thing that you always HAVE to buy?
I have to buy a bottle
of Rose. We do our shopping on a Thursday evening at ASDA and at the end of the
list there is my bottle of wine. I stand there eyeing all the beautiful bottles
of wine. But always end up taking the BlackTower
brand. And my little girl never fails to pip ‘You still have a bottle of wine
‘I know my love.’ I
smile. It’s always good to stock up just in case at some point we’re snowed in
to favourite film write an erotic scene featuring the main characters in 100
words or less.
Neo looks into
Trinity’s eyes, their bodies naked, wet, breathing heavy. His cock hard her supple
breasts brush up against his chest. Her hands travelled freely down his back and
down towards his tense arse.
‘Promise you’ll never
His lips pressed
against hers, tongue dipped into her warm mouth, the wet juices flush from her
throbbing pussy. ‘Promise.’ She muffles into him heavily.
just for a light hearted end to the interview.
would you want etched on your tombstone ?
Iris was a horny bitch
who loved good wine, chocolate, strawberries and all things shiny... nah,
scratch that. ‘Iris was a strong, independent woman who loved to live her life
to the fullest. And boy did she live!’
Thank you for joining
me today and I would like to wish you all the best in future endeavours.
Thank you so much for
allowing me to stop at your blog. I love it by the way!
The Whitby Ghost
Roy has a past he'd rather forget. To overcome it he takes his
girlfriend Melisa to Whitby,
the very place of his past that he is trying to forget. Roy believes it's the only way to move on and
to forget it by moving on with his future, Melisa.
But something is lurking in Whitby,
something that Melisa becomes sensitive to the minute they arrive. What she
discovers is hard to swallow. What follows is a journey to the other side.
Something she'd rather forget.
Will Melisa marry her boyfriend who refuses to talk about his past? Or will his
past bring them closer?
gazed around him and a sudden fear gripped him but he quickly shook it off. He
could do this; besides it was a whole different place now than it had been
three years ago.There were no cars
about in the parking lot. A church still stood to the left of the B&B.
There was still the trickling sound of water in front of them. Roy remembered that a river ran past the
B&B and memories he tried to push down flashed for a split second. The
cold, the sound of water, the emptiness of the night! He shuddered and like a
lid on a pressured pot he tried to suppress the boiling thoughts.
The B&B was
engulfed in darkness except for the single light that burned to the right side
of the door.
‘Are you sure
this is five star accommodation?’ She queried as he unloaded the bags from the
boot. She wrapped her arms around her body to keep warm.
‘Yes, I paid a
five star price; this will be fun, spooky just how you like it.’
So until I, once again, need to feed this is Julez S Morbius saying keep your necks clean, you never know when I will come calling.
