A Quickie with Nikki

Six Questions for Your Favorite Authors

John Everson

Nikki Noir (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

 

John Everson (JE):  Well, I’d love to sit in the bar of my “sex club from hell” novel NightWhere and watch the denizens of that club. But… that’s not a real place!  Honestly, I don’t have any truly “dark fantasies” that I’d like to try. I think I must exorcise them all onto paper for my fiction!  My own needs and desires are pretty simple--I’d love to have enough money to buy all the pinball machines I want for my basement arcade room, and have the time to play them.  Nothing too dark there!

Daniel O'Connor

Nikki Noir (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

 

Daniel O'Connor (DO):  First, I'd like to thank you for the interview! It's an honor and a pleasure. I could never reveal my darkest fantasy or ever act it out because I do have
a moral code and I am absolutely loaded with empathy. Probably too much so.

John Palisano

Nikki Noir (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

 

John Palisano (JP):  For years, I had some pretty off the wall fantasies I never dreamt would come true. Most have. Even some of the more depraved ones. I’d love to have a lost weekend in New Orleans again one day. Endless nights. Flowing liquor. Wonderful conversation. The taste of flesh. The faint taste of blood, of sweat, of absynthe, and to leave with the memories of dark secrets left unshared.

Chris Kosarich

Nikki Noir (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

 

Chris Kosarich(CK):  Hmmm. Not sure if I've ever given that much thought, believe it or not, but would probably be able to control anyone with your mind. To make them do whatever you wanted or desire. That would be too much fun and way too dangerous.

KAREN RUNGE

Nikki Noir (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

 

Karen Runge KRJ): I don’t have any specific dark fantasies. You might not think so from reading some of my work, but it’s true. I am very susceptible to Appel du Vide, or Call of the Void, though. I catch it at least once a week, one way or another. Call of the Void is that crazy, flickering impulse we all get from time to time to straight-up destroy ourselves: like standing close to the edge of a cliff and feeling the urge to jump. Or driving close to a barrier and suddenly wanting to steer into it.

Austin James

Nikki Noir (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

 

Austin James (AJ): You won’t believe this if you’ve read my first book, but it has nothing to do with sexing up a toaster.

Kristopher Triana

Nikki Noir (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

 

Kristopher Triana (KT): Kristopher Triana: BDSM sex with Julianne Moore and Lindsay Lohan. Can't live it out because they won't return my calls... yet.

Dean H. Wild

Nikki Noir (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

 

Dean H. Wilde (DW): My darkest fantasy is pretty far out there, and a little bit amorphous because the details will change with my mood, but it always involves me sitting on a throne with minions or other subservient beings capering about waiting to do my bidding while cringing at the thought of what wonders or suffering could be wrought by my boundless power. Yeah, that's something I'll never be able to act out unless you count my two cats milling around the base of my living room recliner while I polish off a bag of cheese puffs.

Nelson W. Pyles

Nikki Noir: What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

 

Nelson W. Pyles: My darkest fantasy is that everyone who ever doubted me, or thought very little of me would one day kind of choke on what I do. I didn't have a lot of support starting out from friends and family and now that I'm chugging along with writing, folks I've never even met in person are really beautifully supportive. I do hope it never pans out, because that lack of encouragement from the folks who are supposed to mean the most fuels my drive. Spite is a very underrated motivator, although not totally healthy either.  I'm trying to find a middle ground there.

Dani Brown

Nikki Noir (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

 

Dani Brown (DB): 

Is this where I talk about impaling certain politicians and leaving their bodies to rot outside the Tower of London? Because that would illegal. Would be nice though. Or is this some sort of sexual thing? 

Brent Michael Kelley

Nikki Noir (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

 

Brent Michael Kelly (BMK): My darkest? Heh... Okay, so... Um, no, that's too dark. Second darkest, though! That's the one where I'm in a torch-lit sub-basement, writing on parchment with a quill pen. Lustmord soundscapes are playing from unseen speakers. I'm surrounded by racks of red wine and pale ale. I sit with my back to a long, unlit tunnel that leads into a network of caves. Is something coming behind me? Better write quicker before it grabs me and drags me screaming back to its lair. I think at that point I'll switch to a regular pen. Or the laptop. Also it's midnight. 

Ryan Harding

NIKKI (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

Ryan Harding (RH):  I am still plundering the depths for that one, hoping it is yet to be discovered so I can look forward to writing about it one day. In addition to whatever ethical objections I'd have to actually doing whatever it might be, knowing me it's bound to also be something impossible.  

John McNee

NIKKI (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

John McNee (JM): My fantasies are all about control. Manipulating other people – either through mind control or magic – to do things they wouldn't otherwise do and create situations that I can just sit back and watch. I'll never act it out in real life because there is currently no technology that gives you the powers of a God. But it might account for why I write. In a story, I control everything that happens.

KJ Moore

NIKKI (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

KJ Moore (KM):  It involves several celebrity guest appearances, and with the Atlantic being what it is… 

Daniel I. Russell

NIKKI (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

Russell (DR): 

would never act out any of my fantasies. Well...not the fantasies your readers would like to read about. Not that they're too bizarre or extreme, just boring. "My fantasy is to save up over summer and put those excess funds into our check account and not the savings, as while it's not accruing interest, it is offsetting the higher interest generated by the home loan, yet still available should an emergency arise."

 

Not exactly Two Girls, One Cup is it? 

Autumn Christian

NIKKI (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

Autumn Christian (AC): Oh, okay. Let's get right to the good stuff then! My darkest fantasy is the idea that I may get to be happy. Feral creatures like me, teeth and broken light-bulbs wrapped in a human suit, don't get to be happy. Or so I thought. Over the last two years I've learned that you can both be a nighttime wild and strange thing, but also have a family, a home, and people that love you....

Christine Morgan

NIKKI (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

Morgan (CM): Total world-domination-type supervillainy. When I was a kid, the other girls wanted to be Disney princesses, while Maleficent was my personal role-model. The bit in Lord of the Rings when Galadriel goes all scary with the "you would have a Queen, beautiful and terrible as the morning and the night, all shall love me and despair" ... yeah, that sounded pretty good to me, but then she turns it down. Sheesh. Obviously, the lack of ultimate power gets in the way of ever achieving any of that, more's the pity. I'd misuse it terribly, I'm sure. 

Jeff Strand

NIKKI (NN): What’s your darkest fantasy? And why will you never act it out in real life?

STRAND (JS): I’d like to fill a bathtub with gummi bears, climb in there with them, melt them part of the way with a hair dryer, and then emerge from the tub as a twisted half-human, half-deformed-gummi-bear creature. I will never act on this because it’s impractical.
