Author Interview: Beautful One by Kerry Adrienne

About the Author:


Repped by the fabulous Marisa Corvisiero with the Corvisiero Literary Agency. http://www.corvisieroagency.com/

Kerry loves history and spends large amounts of time wondering about people who lived and walked on Earth in the past. She’s a mom to three daughters, six cats, and various small animals. Her husband says she’s a marketer’s dream, as she often believes everything she hears—at least initially. Her shoe horde will attest to her fine shopping skills.

In addition to writing, she’s a college instructor, costumer, MFA candidate at Seton Hill University, Senior Editor for Decadent Publishing, and freelance editor.

Her new love is her Mini Cooper Convertible, Sheldon, and they have already gone on many adventures.

Do you plan everything or just let the story flow?

I always have some sort of path planned out from beginning to end--but I rarely end up taking it.

Do your characters ever want to take over the story?

yes, of course! I usually let them. :)

What drew you to the M/M genre in particular?

I'm not sure how to answer that because I really don't know. Beautiful One is set in Ancient Greece, in the theater world which was mostly men. The story just naturally grew from that time period/setting.

Do you write in other genres besides M/M?

Yes, sure. M/f historical and contemporary, PNR, SFR...really wherever the story leads.

Are you a morning person or a night owl?

Both. I take a nap midday and then sleep 3-5 hours at night. :)

Do distant places feature in your books?

Yes, I've written stories that take place in Ancient Rome, Ancient Greece, Druid Ireland...and the next four books are set in New York City.

Could you tell us a bit about your latest release?


Greek theater has always captivated me, and writing a story where Sophocles is a character was just too much fun to resist. I'd imagine there were lots of good looking young guys wandering the streets of Athens during the theatrical festivals.

What have you learned about writing and publishing since you first started?

Trust your gut. Always.

Anything you would say to those just starting out in the craft?

The book won't write itself. Butt in chair!

Beautiful One

Kallistos, a shy playwright, has been chosen to compete at the Great Dionysia festival in Athens. His plays are strong, but he faces Sophocles, the man who has won almost every contest. Kallistos, the beautiful one, has eschewed intimacy—yet the dark Alexios pierces his armor with philosophies he’s never considered, and he falls hard.

Alexios, a shepherd, aspires to be an actor in Athens. His trip plunges him into a plot of deceit and lies when Sophocles hires him to sabotage his competition. Sophocles promises money and a part on stage—but challenges Alexios’ beliefs and honor.

Though uncomfortable with the lies, Alexios woos Kallistos, finding himself deeply drawn to the man. As the performances near, Alexios must decide which he wants more—his lover, or his lifelong dream of fame and a career. While Kallistos faces issues of trust and forgiveness, and must ponder where life is truly lived—on stage or in reality.

Inside Scoop:  "This book contains hot, sexy scenes of M/M interaction in a public bathhouse and in private. Come on in, the water’s fine.”
