Â The quest of Paymaster Stenstrom spans the planes, taking a bizarre turn in the 3rd universe, as there he is not an affluent man but a woman in desperate circumstances. Lady Stenibelle is imprisoned for her role in the Seeker Affair, is penniless, and her House of Belmont-South Tyrol is on the verge of extinction. Her spirit broken, Stenibelle is resigned to perform her sentence without fuss, do as she is told, and fade away in obscurity. However, fate is not yet finished with her. Stenibelle is in the gaze of hidden benefactors with ulterior motives. People claiming to be her dear friends come forward, yet she does not know them. The Quests of the Shadow tech Goddess proceed, and she must discover the hero that lies within or face total oblivion. The disgraced 30th daughter of the House of Belmont will either be the final stake driven into its dying heart, or the ray of light that comes to save it and all else that follows.

Tell us about your writing – Â What genre do you prefer to write?
I write science fiction/fantasy books. Very low on the science, very high on the fantasy. I have a giant-sized imagination thatâ€™s extruded from my brain like a slushie at the gas station, and such a genre is well-suited for me.
What books, stories, other publications that you’ve written are your personal favorites?
I donâ€™t think I have a personal favorite, Iâ€™m happy with them all. Essentially, I write stories that I like to read. Iâ€™m fairly minimalist when it comes to floral descriptions, Iâ€™ve been taught plot is king, and Iâ€™m a really good plotter.
Anything new coming up?
The next book in the series is Book 10: The House of Bloodstein: Perlamum, followed by The House of Bloodstein: Mentralysis. Iâ€™m very excited for this series. It should be a lot of fun.
What gets your creative juices going? Do you write to a music, and do you want to share your playlist?
I love writing at night–that usually gets my juices flowing. When I listen to music, I usually listen to darker, more depressing sort of tunes. One of my usual soundtracks is â€œBella Lugosiâ€™s Deadâ€ by Bauhaus and the soundtrack to the Fear Effect.
What about you as a person? What do you do to relax? Favorite movies or tv shows? Hobbies?
I have all sorts of interests. I love caving, I love crawling in the deep unseen places. I also love wandering through huge, craggy buildings like hospitals and old hotels. I really canâ€™t say what my favorite film would be–I have many that I love, and the list changes all the time. My current favorite TV show is â€œVikingsâ€ on the History Channel though I also like â€œLongmireâ€ on Netflicks as well.
What color would you wear if you had only one choice?Â
Red and Gray (Iâ€™m a Buckeye fan)
