Interview with Carlos Dash, author of Dorian
07 Nov 2017
What can you tell us about your new release, Dorian?
Dorian is a new adult romance novel about the billionaire owner of a major sports franchise falling in love for the first time. This is someone who has gone his entire life avoiding getting close to people, so this change hits him at the core. He has no idea how to deal with the emotions going through him, which leads to some very interesting situations.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
I was inspired to become an author by the desire to share my stories with as many people as possible. As for who inspired me, I’d single out Nicholas Sparks. before I started reading his books, I thought no one would be interested in reading romance novels written by a man.
What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?
Boy, that’s a tough one. In no particular order: The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, Shutter Island. And for the last one, I’ll cheat and mention the entire Harry Potter series as one book.
Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?
There are too many authors I would love to interview. But Nicholas Sparks, Penny Wylder, and J.K. Rowling would be at the top of the list.
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
The ability to take ideas in my head and put them into a format where I can share my vision with many others from many walks of life.
If you had an extra hour each day, how would you spend it?
With my family and my pets – just sitting around and talking.
What scene in Dorian was your favorite to write?
Honestly, I loved writing all of it. No preference for any particular scene – although the sex scenes are obviously the steamiest.
Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?
Just enjoy yourself and let the universe resolve whatever you’re going through.
