An Interview with Rayne Marzett

Author of "A Reason, A Season, Or A Lifetime"

How did you choose your pen name (and/or what does your pen name mean)?
My middle name is Rayne Tu so that is where the pen name comes from. My father wanted me to rule over everything that I touched so he names me Rain spelled Rayne Tu means Leader of the world. And Marzett is my last name.

Why (and how) did you begin writing erotic fiction?
Actually the book I wrote was not meant to be as erotic as it turned out to be. But when I got done with it, it seemed to just work out like that.

How long have you been writing?
I've been writing since the 3rd grade when i wrote my first children's book.

How do you get ideas for your work?
I just write things that I would enjoy reading about, or what I think others would like to see.

How long does it typically take to write a piece?
It usually takes me about year maybe less to write a book. Depends on how well I'm flowing with the theme.

How does your work reflect (or compare to) your real life experiences?
This book is very much a reflection of my real life. With the a few fables thrown in to add spice.

What creative projects are you working on right now?
Right now I'm working on my next book, which I may or may not post. Depends on my contract with Aunt Lutes Publishing. But it's about a woman that leaves her husband of seven years to be with her lover that she has had almost as long.

Has your work been published anywhere else? If yes, where?
I've had a poem called Does It Matter published in several gay and lesbian magazines and almost everywhere you could think of. A lot of people loved it and it's become kinda like part of the community.

When can we look forward to reading something else by you on Kuma?
Well A Reason, A Season, Or A Lifetime runs until the end of the year. And I've been thinking about sending in a short story or two.

If you had to choose, which one of your own stories or poems published with Kuma would you say is your favorite?
I only have one.

Which stories and/or poetry on Kuma do you like that were NOT written by you?
I am a big fan of Glitter and I really dig all of Robin G. White work.

Please tell us one thing you do for fun.
I am a poolaholic. I play every time I get a chance and have been thinking of going pro if this writing thing doesn't work out for me. lol
