Interview- HE: A Sexual Odyssey by Stephan Morsk




Please share a little about yourself, your genres, any other pen names you use.

My name is Stephan Morsk.  I’m a mental health professional who writes daily.  I’ve won a 7th and an 8th place in a Writer’s Digest Competition out of a field of 19,000.  My web site morsklitmonthly.com offers a new short story each month.  I’ve won honorable mentions and published short stories. 

Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

“HE:A Sexual Odyssey” is the story of a law student who is involved with a series of women who either loathe him, try to poison him, save his life or exploit him sexually.  The first is the nanny of his ex boss’ kid.  She sends him a hateful letter enclosing a pubic hair and rubbed with pheromones.  After observing a woman in a coffee shop whose breasts are ‘freaks of nature’ she leaves a briefcase and departs.  He’s unsuccessful in returning it to her, but this karmic event exposes him to a bevy of dangerous and seductive paramours. 

Are you a parent?

Father of a fabulous girl. 

If yes do you find it hard to juggle writing and parenting?

I write first thing in the morning before everybody is up.  I like quiet when I write. 

Have you ever based your book or characters on actual events or people from your own life?

Absolutely.  I visualize a character while I write about them.  I also draw from TV and popular culture, pictures I’ve seen in magazines or elsewhere.  The actual character however comes from pure imagination. 

Is there a theme or message in your work that you would like readers to connect to?

A couple of themes stand out in “HE:A Sexual Odyssey.”  The first is the protagonist’s blind devotion to finding Ms. Right despite all ignominous odds or female eccentricities.  For example, Eve, the woman with ‘freaks of nature’ breasts carries a gun and is part of a gang of smuggler thugs.  Misha, the ineluctably hot nanny, is only interested in sado-masochistic encounters in women’s rest rooms.  A related theme is the power of women.  The third theme that gleans through all my writing is the arbitrariness of gonzo karma.  In his desperate search for feminine salvation “HE” is subject to intolerable twists of fate including being beaten up by one of the gang’s thugs, an attempt to poison him, etc. 

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you? 

I’m old?

When you’re not writing what do you do? Do you have any hobbies or guilty pleasures?  

I’m a pretty decent amateur magician. 

Which romance book or series (or other genre, if you don’t write romance) do you wish you had written?  

Harry Potter. 

Is there a genre(s) that you’d like to write that you haven’t tackled yet? 

No.  I call my works ‘mysteroticoms’, combining mystery, comedy and erotica.  That’s what I love writing, and, reading for that matter, although I can’t think of anyone doing it. 

Of all the characters you’ve ever written, who is your favorite and why?

Eve, from “HE” is reincarnated so to speak as Beatrice in a following book.  She’s smart, sexy, ruthless and can plug a pigeon in the air at thirty feet with a Russian pistol.  She adores “HE’s” nine inch organ. 

If this book is part of a series…what is the next book? Any details you can share?

In the next part of the four part series, entitled “Trashy Novel:A Love Story” Eve’s reincarnated as Beatrice.  The second part, “SHE” is all about Beatrice, the adoration or our protagonist and her strengths.  The final installment, “I” is told by “HE” in the first person.

What is next for you? 
Do you have any scheduled upcoming releases or works in progress?  

I want to market “HE” to the readership it deserves.  I believe in it and feel it needs to be appreciated widely. Then I’ll work on publishing the next installments which are already written.

What book are you reading now? 

None.  I’m a slow reader and often just read short stories or nothing at all until I’m on vacation. 

What is in your to read pile?

Norman Mailer’s my favorite author.  I’ve never actually read “The Naked and the Dead” so perhaps that’s it.  His best is “American Dream” in my estimation.
