Today’s Featured Writer is Frey Ortega !!!
Frey Ortega writes erotic romance, primarily of the gay variety. He lives in what a friend affectionately calls “the south-easternmost part of Spain,” which is an archipelago called the Philippines. He’s a graduate of the Royal, Pontifical, and Catholic University in Manila, with a Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology. Primarily, he works as a writer, a novelist, sometimes a video game journalist, and overall a homebody who spends way too much time on the internet.
He loves writing about people, especially people of all different shapes, sizes and backgrounds, falling in love. You might also find him playing video games from time to time! His favorite ones are MMORPGs, and role-playing games in general (and not just the ones in the bedroom.)
THE Q & A
Which one of your fictional characters would you like to do the nasty with?
Of the lot, I’d probably really want to do it with a Caer Tarw minotaur. I like big, tall, masculine guys.
Who’s your most exciting character and who would play them in the movie?
I feel like the most exciting character would probably be Liam Hernandez, from the Hidden Lake series. I’d love to see Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) play him! If only because their sheer size, musculature, tan-ness and tattooed-ness, and the fact that The Rock acts well, would work for his character.
In 20 Years You’ll be ______?
I’ll hopefully still be writing erotic romance for people to enjoy! But if not, then maybe I’ll be an editor, or a proofreader, or some sort of researcher.
A Great Erotica Novel Must Have what Three Things?
I’m not sure I can really be the foremost expert on great erotica, but good erotica should have sexual tension, a strong story, and a believable relationship. Sexual tension because, well, it’s always the tension which ups the ante of the relationship. A strong story because where would we be without our dashing heroes and damsels in distress (even when said damsels turn out to be men;) and a believable relationship, because a reader has to be able to suspend their disbelief enough to see how these two souls perfectly click together. In erotic romance, anyway!
Give a shout-out to your most valued Fan, Helper, or Mentor and why?
I’d love to give a shout out to a few people, actually! Bec from Bike Book Reviews is one; so is Pat Fischer, who helps me edit my books; Kristina Galbert, who pushes me to write; and Cree Storm, who has been my constant friend and mentor writing for almost a whole year now!
Who’s Your Favorite Porn Star and Why?
Gosh, this changes a lot. I like Brad Kalvo. I also like Connor Maguire. Damien Crosse, too! Sean Cody’s Jess and Daniel are my favorites. I guess you can see that my favorites tend to be either really good tops, or people who are really masculine.
Who was your first erotica novel dedicated to and why?
I think my first erotica novel was dedicated to a lot of people, but the one that stands out to me is my dad. It’s not so much that he reads erotica or likes it, but that he didn’t sneer at me and continues to support me to this day is something that I’m very thankful for.
Have you ever incorporated humor into a sex scene and, if not, would you be willing to try it?
I’m not sure, I guess I’d have to ask my readers if they found a little funny in one of my sex scenes. But if not, then yes, definitely, on trying out humor in a sex scene! I think it’s nice when people can share laughter with each other.
Where is one place you would never consider having sex at and why?
A dirty restroom. I don’t think I would get past the smell. I know there’s a whole kink about that but just thinking about the smell and the grime and the… ugh. It’s making me shake my head and everything inside me is screaming NO!
On an average day you would most likely be wearing boxers, tighty-whiteys, or going commando?
I’m most likely to wear boxers and a white t-shirt. I lounge about at home all day for the most part, after all!
A BILLIONAIRE’S GAMBLE
Dylan Ferrara is an academic wunderkind whose life just got a whole lot messier. After his academic career comes to a staggering halt, his best friends give him a reality check: join the ‘real world’ and start working, or continue chasing an impossible dream. Reluctantly, he agrees.
Remington Whitley is a billionaire who’s sick of the monotony of his playboy life. One day, his company invites a geeky little data scientist over for an interview. The man piques his interest enough on a personal level that he decides to take a gamble and invite Dylan out for a date.
Dylan is conflicted. Remy is a gamble in and of himself, and Dylan’s inexperience makes him cautious. Dylan doesn’t know if he wants to take the bet with such high stakes on the line.
But what can he do when throwing the dice and leaving his fate up to luck feels so, so right?
CAPTURING HIS HEART (CAER TARW 1)
Welcome to Caer Tarw in beautiful, scenic Ireland, home of beautiful flora and endemic fauna, as well as…Minotaurs? Rabbit shifter Hayden Somerset wastes away at home, having nothing to do and having no sense of progress in his life. One day, he is given an invitation he can’t refuse: an all-expenses paid trip to Ireland for three weeks, sponsored by the Supernatural Council. As soon as he gets to Caer Tarw, the stage is set: mating season is close nearby, and the purpose they were all invited for was to help the Minotaurs find their mates. Hayden is among the lucky ones, finding Minotaurs Brian Connelly and Ronan Breckenridge, who are lovers, and are Hayden’s mates. But not all is well in their tiny slice of paradise. Hayden is clueless about Minotaurs and knows nothing about them. Ronan and Brian are clueless about how to bring their rabbit into their world. How exactly will they capture their rabbit’s heart?
ANSWERING HIS SONG (CAER TARW 2)
One day, Caer Tarw guest and sparrow shifter Merritt Lang finds himself in a bit of a predicament. Thinking he is alone, he hums a little tune. What he doesn’t know is that there are two Minotaurs nearby, and for inexplicable reasons, they’re drawn to his voice. David Finley and Connor Monaghan are Minotaurs. They’re also best friends and sometimes lovers. Connor is surly and foul-tempered. David is the one who has to keep him grounded. When they hear Merritt’s song, however, the two of them find themselves mesmerized… and almost drown themselves in the process. Merritt is distraught. Not only has this never happened before, but now he finds himself with the attention of David and Connor who want to get to the bottom of things, and who want him as their third. To make matters worse, unanswered questions pile up. Problems begin to occur. Caer Tarw is no longer safe. How will the two Minotaurs answer Merritt’s song?
