Fantastic Fives on Debut Author Selena Illyria

Dear Reader,
In a man's letters his soul lies naked.- Samuel Johnson

I/R Author, Selena Illyria was born with need to write and an over active imagination. She loves to write stories featuring futuristic cities that can only be imagined, visit island kingdoms of vampire/dragons, giggle with mischievous pixies, peek in on faeries looking for their mates, check in on the naughty staff of an exclusive academy, and sigh over how in love a powerful business exec is with his wife. She can't wait to write stories with her talented, creative and wonderful CPs Celia Kyle and Shara Cooper. And when she's not writing, she loves to read many different genres of books. She also loves to watch some of her favorite movies (too many to be named) and televisions shows. She also, loves to listen to some of her favorite musical artists. All of these things help inspire her to write. She does believe in the quote above. She does believe that part of writing does bare a part of the soul.

If you'd like to know more about her, you, can visit the following places:

So, reader, now that you've been told you a bit about her. Can she tempt you dear reader? Can she seduce you into her world and show you a bit of her soul? And if you'd like, you can show her a bit of yours. Do we have deal? Please ignore the wicked gleam in her eye, it was trick of the light. *smile*

Hi Selena,

HI Selena,
Thank you. *g*
In your bio you talked about dragons, are there dragons in Vampiropolis? Or is there a sexy dragon in one of your WIP's?

Hugs, Danette
