Quick Six TNG with DC Juris

Today we're lucky to have author DC Juris at Donuts & Desires for the weekly Quick Six TNG!

1. What does "vanilla" mean to you?
I'd love to say the first thing that springs to my mind is something nice and innocent, maybe having to do with ice cream or yogurt, but it's not. I think of sex. :-P
2. Is there any moment from your life that you remember in slow motion?
When my husband (then fiance) was in the ICU for 3 days back in 2002. I remember feeling like I was walking through thick fog or soup the entire time. Every second just inched by, and the days stretched out into the nights and I barely noticed if it was light or dark outside. I don't think I slept at all until he came home. I alternated by spending my time at the hospital, at work, and at home on a cleaning spree. I was in constant motion, because I knew if I stopped at any moment, the reality of his life hanging in the balance would just kill me. Even now, if I think back, I can see the images in my head but they play out in this dramatically slow fashion.
3. What's the most unsettling movie you've ever seen?
The Secret Window with Johnny Depp. He plays Mort, a writer who finds out his wife is cheating on him, so he goes out to this secluded cabin where he suffers writers block. Then this guy shows up, and accuses him of plagiarism, but the guy turns out to be imaginary, and we discover Mort has dissociative identity disorder. He eventually kills his wife and her lover, but doesn't get caught for it. The whole movie is just creepy.
4. If you had to get a tattoo on your face, what would you want it to look like?
A spider web! Wouldn't that be hot? Not like, cheesy centered in the middle spider web like Spiderman. It would appear to come down out of my hairline, and there'd be a spider coming up from under my chin.
5. How many monkeys jumping on the bed?
Ugh! None! I hate monkeys! They have monkey hands and monkey feet and they smell.
6. Which of the books or stories you've written is your favourite?
"Finding Sanctuary". It's my newest release, and it's with Fanny Press. It's completely different than anything else I've written, and I absolutely loved following Vincent on his journey of discovery. He led me to write about things I'd never delved into before, and I worried that I was going too far, but in the end, everything is just so perfect for him. I love seeing a character struggle and grow, and come out on the other side more whole than they ever thought they could be.


Vincent is a typical, average guy who has begun to unravel. He has a respectable, mainstream life, with a solid job, nice girlfriend, comfortable house—all the material trappings. What, then, is causing this restlessness, these blackouts? The first revelation is that his best friend Eric is also his heart’s desire. But then Eric invites him to a weekend at a BDSM playhouse ... There Vincent will confront his fears and test the limits of his sexual boundaries. Eric has his needs, too—needs that conflict with Vincent’s. Will their fragile new bond survive the weekend?
Will Vincent find the sanctuary he so fervently desires?
