Today we get to chat with Natalie L. Sin, author of the weird, wonderful, and touching-in-an-unexpected-way ”Sacrifice”.
1. For those who haven’t read it yet, can you describe “Sacrifice” in one sentence?
Bros before hos.
2. There are so many wonderful things going on in this story, body-swapping, gender issues, love, murder, revenge, but it still manages to be a kind of love letter to Japan. What was your inspiration for setting it there?
The story is based on a picture of my favorite band, who are all Japanese, and I love Tokyo. When I first started writing I wrote a lot of stories about Hong Kong, where my husband is from, and my muse has since started a long journey across the Asian content.
3. You’re coming back with a vengeance after a sort of quiet period. What’s coming up next for your stories, and what are you working on writing?
I’ve been away from writing short stories, and it’s really fun to get back into it! So far this year I’ve written another sort set in Japan, and one based on one of my husband’s phobias. I’m also working on two new novels, one horror and one gay erotica. You’ll see a lot more gay characters from me in general this year. I love writing about men, so the more schlongs the merrier!
Well, you won’t get any argument here. Thanks for humoring us, Natalie, and we hope to have you back again soon. Haven’t checked out “Sacrifice” yet? Here it is. Ahhh yeah.
