Guest Author Jamie Denton


Jamie Denton, known for her sizzling Harlequin Blaze stories and her romantic suspense books for Brava was gracious enough to take time away from writing her latest serial killer to chat with the vampire boys.

Her latest title, REMAIN SILENT, is up for Best Villian at All About Romance. Check it out at www.jamiedenton.net .

The Impalers read Remain Silent and as a result have decided that Jamie is one scary woman, and that she could easily find a way to end their undead lives if she set her mind to it.

Here's what Jamie had to say.

1. Why don’t you write about vampires?
Um…because Erin McCarthy and Kathy Love do it so much better than I ever could.

2. If you could go on a date with a vampire, what would you do?
Heh, heh, heh.

3. What is your favorite vampire movie?
Salem’s Lot, the original with David Soul. Scared the beejeebers out of me!

4. Would you like to stay up all night and sleep all day? What would you miss about day-walking?
I pretty much do that now. Maybe I’m really a vamp at heart? But I’d really miss those early bird sales during the holidays.

5. What celebrity do you suspect is a vampire?
Angelina Jolie. If there ever was a blood sucking bi…uh…woman, she’s it! Just ask Jennifer Anniston.

6. What food would you miss the most if you were a vampire?
Cheeseburgers!

7. What is your favorite hobby?
Knitting.

8. What would your hobby be if you were a vampire?
Flying. And that whole putting a glamour on someone thing seems like it’d be pretty cool, too.

9. Who is your idol?
Katherine Graham. Now there was a woman with ba…uh…teeth.

10. Vampires or werewolves? Why?
Definitely vampires. They don’t shed.

11. Where is your favorite place to go on vacation?
New York City because it’s the center of the universe.

12. If you were a vampire, where would you sleep? Coffin? Darkened bedroom? Crypt? Or other? If other, explain.
A suite at the Ava

13. If you weren't a writer, what would you be?
A millionaire.

14. What's the best part of being a writer?
No pantyhose! No makeup! And I can work all night and sleep all day if I want to..

15. If your were a vampire, what time period would you have been made one?
The Renaissance. Love the art from that period.

16. Who was a better vampire? Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise?
Brad Pitt. He’s cuter.

Thanks, Jamie! And that's three votes for Brad Pitt. Note to Vittorio: Long hair and melancholy eyes works with authors.

NICE interview...Jamie, you crack me up. HILARIOUS answers!!!

Christy C said...

Too funny! Thanks for making me smile this morning.

Kathy Love said...

Hi Jamie!

Love the answers! Thanks for joining us today. I think I'm a vampire at heart too.
;)

The Impalers said...

Mmm, honorary vampires are always welcome.

Maybe that's why we click with writers. They are all a little vampy.

And I have to grumble a bit. What is it with Brad Pitt and women anyway???

The Impalers said...

I hear ya, brother!

I have two words for you...
Twelve Monkeys.
Brad's not so hot there, now was he???

I'm just sayin.

Welcome Jamie!

Erin McCarthy said...

Hi Jamie! Thanks for talking to our vampire boys. And too funny that you'd sleep in a suite at the Ava. For those who haven't read my Vegas Vamps series, that's the casino where all the coolest vampires live. LOL.

Oh and for the record, I pick Brad Pitt too. :)

Jamie Denton said...

And I have to grumble a bit. What is it with Brad Pitt and women anyway???

Ren - You only gave me two choices so I went with the lesser evil. Now if you could talk Russell Crowe into playing a vampire, then we'd have somethign to discuss :-)

Jamie Denton said...

Rhonda & Christy - You are so welcome for the smiles. It was truly my pleasure.

Jamie Denton said...

Kathy! How's it hangin', honey? Congrats on your new Brava deal. Does this mean we'll see more vampire stories from you?

Jamie Denton said...

I have two words for you...
Twelve Monkeys.
Brad's not so hot there, now was he???


And I have three words for you, Drake. Thelma and Louise. Even you have to admit Brad was one hot con man.

Jamie Denton said...

And too funny that you'd sleep in a suite at the Ava. For those who haven't read my Vegas Vamps series, that's the casino where all the coolest vampires live. LOL.

And where the most powerful vampires live, too. And if I wasn't a writer, I'd be a millionaire, so I could so totally afford it :-)

Kristine Thompson said...

Great interview-I second the Angelina Jolie comment!

Solange Ayre said...

Jamie, OMG I totally agree with you about Renaissance art. 15th c. Italian especially. I have a Botticelli at my Crystal Palace - I'll have to show it to you next time you visit.

LOL about the suite at the Ava. My husband and I used to stay there whenever we went to Vegas.

Jamie Denton said...

I have a Botticelli at my Crystal Palace - I'll have to show it to you next time you visit.

What a wonderful idea! I was thinking of a nice little getaway was in order and feels like ages since I've been out to visit.

Jamie Denton said...

Kristine - Do you think it's the lips?

Christine Nolfi said...

Jamie,

If you're traveling to Italy sometime soon, I'd love to visit Solange's crystal palace. Take me along?

Chris

Jamie Denton said...

Chris - Oh definitely. I'm thinking in the spring?

Christine Nolfi said...

Jamie said - Oh definitely. I'm thinking in the spring?

Italy in the spring works for me. Is there some transfiguration thing The Impalers can teach us? We become bats and fly the Atlantic? I'm not sure how the Italians take to night creatures--I guess we'll find out!
