AUTHOR INTERVIEW


Do you have any advice for all the aspiring writers out there?
The only advice at this time is the one I tell myself: “If this is truly your passion; don’t give up.”

If you could travel forward or backward in time, where would you go and why?
This always sound fun until you consider the small things that might rain on your parade …. Like untreatable diseases of the time such as syphillis, a marauding group of soldiers sent to the local town to rape and pillage, or the ill-tempered King who decides to call out a decree of no food for a month.

We’ve all got a little voyeurism in us right? If you could be a fly on the wall during an intimate encounter (does not need to be sexual) between two characters, not your own, who would they be?
I’m a gay dude. So Tom Daley and his boyfriend, or maybe me ☺ Need I say more?


If I were snooping around your kitchen and looked in your refrigerator right now, what would I find?
Most of it is my roommates. And if he wasn’t around, it would be barren.


If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be?
Mind Control. That would be helpful in lots of situations.


If you could trade places with one of your characters, who would it be and why?
Oh my… in Wehr Wolff Castle I would trade with Hagen.  He gets to kiss Liam and well… you see if you read the book.


If you could sequester yourself for a week somewhere and just focus on your writing, where would you go and what would the environment be like?
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Heard some good things. Turns out I’ll be checking this place out this summer and plan to get some writing done.


What's the one thing, you can't live without?
Personal company. I am certainly independent and in the middle of the spectrum of introvert-vs-extrovert. Interpersonal deprivation is not a good thing for me and it helps give me motivation to write. Remember that book Shining? That dude had some major isolation and that turned out bad.


What internet site do you surf to the most?
Oh geeze. I rarely have time to just surf the net. Great question though!


If you had your own talk show, who would your first three author guests be and why?
Stephen King, as he’s been my favorite since I can remember. J. K. Rowlings to see how in the world she puts her plots together. And going back in time… Mark Twain. The guy was far head of his time with a very interesting mind. I would love to just sit back and listen to him.


When you got your very first manuscript acceptance letter, what was your initial reaction and who was the first person you told?
Yes! Sign me up!


Wehr Wolff Castle
The Wehr Wolff Chronicles Book 1
by B. Bentley Summers
Genre: Historical Horror, LGBT

During the rise of Nazi Germany, Hagen Messer joins the Royal Air Force as an American soldier who specializes in tracking. He’s attached to British commandos and given a seemingly simple mission—to find a captive and destroy a dam—but everything goes awry. Hagen’s plane crashes into Germany’s Wehr Forest and he has to use his extrasensory abilities to track the captive to nearby Wehr Wolff Castle, a secret Nazi base where vile experiments are being conducted.




Hagen and his surviving team members must sneak into the castle and devise a way to destroy the experimental labs creating diabolical creatures. Hagen is horrified to find Nazis and scientists with no scruples, and at the most inconvenient time, he learns that he may be in love with one of his teammates, an Irishman named Liam. In order to protect his love and his friends, Hagen must feign nonchalance amidst pure degeneracy and suspicion. Hagen soon discovers, though, that he is in over his head.



What may not only redeem him, but also save his lover and friends, is a childhood past and a darkness lurking deep inside him, just waiting to be engaged.




Bryce is a psychologist, author, and the founder of Queer Sense Theory. 


Bryce writes popular fiction genres meant for all audiences under Bryce Bentley Summers, and pens gay fiction under B. Bentley Summers, although he'd argue that anyone would enjoy his gay fiction pieces.



Bryce's full time work is at the Veteran Affairs where he has been employed for five years. He has extensive history of working with people diagnosed with PTSD and he used these experiences when writing Fresh Meat.

The novel, Fresh Meat, recently won Dan Poynter's Global eBook Awards for best gay fiction. This piece is more than just a book, but embraces gay identity while deploring the hateful violence that happens in the U.S. prison system, and across the world. The book parallels the vicious Man-Punk prison system to the long ago abolished American Slavery System. However, Fresh Meat is not non-fiction, but fiction, and it's genre is best described as Supernatural Horror. 

Rotville and The Zombie Squad, are two of Bryce's recent completions. The Zombie Squad is a teen Post-Apocalyptic Thriller that recently received Reader's Favorite 5-Stars. This novel has humor and is fast pace, that follows four teens in New Orleans who find themselves not only chased by psycho gangsters, but in the middle of zombocalypse. Rotville is a new adult/ adult Sci-Fi Post-Apocalyptic Horror that takes place in the near future, in a city called Rotville where people with a rot disease are quarantined. Inside this city is the mega prison Colleseo, where inhumane experiments are carried out on inmates. It's also the birthplace of Dylan, a super soldier who must fight his way out, save a couple of youths from the new deadly mutants, and keep from being re-caught by the greedy director.

Bryce is also the author of the fiction Young Adult Dark Fantasy/ Sci-Fi series AMEN TO ROT. The novel NYTE GOD is the conclusion to this series. The Amen to Rot series and Nyte God pit Ace and his friends against alien invaders who are turning humans into mutant creatures. 

Bryce authors popular fiction with a style that entices readers of all backgrounds to consume, and makes every attempt to make his characters diverse. 

As noted, Bryce does dabble in gay fiction, and pens it under B. Bentley Summers, though in truth, these works are meant for everyone to read. Bryce is the founder of Queer Sense, a theory that describes how people form attitudes. The theory provides insight into how specific components in cultural contexts shape our beliefs and values, which ultimately form our attitudes. The nonfiction book, QUEER SENSE: How Are Attitudes Formed? A Revolutionary Guide for Teens, Parents, Mental Health Professionals and Anyone Interested in Queer Theory, is due out by 2016.
