Q & A With Shane K. Morton

The prized possession you value above all others…

Memory. The memories I have are what I value the most. They are mine and I will hold onto them with everything I have until the day I die. I also have a number of quilts that were made my mother and aunt that are very special to me, along with an old trunk my father made in the navy. There are other things… but these are just things. My memories of them are what will forever matter to me.

The book that holds everlasting resonance…

I love this question, and I could choose quite a few books from different parts of my life. But I am going to say The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley. This retelling of the Arthurian legend from the female point of view felt like truth-saying. It was like she scried into the past and found a way to divide legend from reality. (Yes, I know it is fiction! But let me have this!) The war of religions smashing into each other. The undercurrent of power that women held, even if the patriarchy tried to subdue them. It was, and still is, a book I re-read, and I think it will be for the rest of my life.

The film you can watch time and time again…

Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca is one of my favorite films of all time. The mood it creates is extraordinary, and I have watched it a lot. But I am going to say Pitch Perfect! LOL! It is one of those movies that I watch to feel good, and I have seen that and Sister Act 2 way too many times!

The person who influenced you the most…

When I was a little gaylet in college, a grad student by the name of Roy took me under his wing. He was also a drag queen named Ursula Moolay before he changed his drag moniker to Raven Ravelle. He taught me how to embrace myself and my sexuality, and to never be ashamed of who I was. I think the strength that I carry around with me to this day, came from meeting him.

The unfulfilled ambition that continues to haunt you…

I was supposed to be a Broadway Star! I was on my way… Then a string of events happened. I hurt myself, and realized that my dancing career had a shelf life of expired. I met my husband and left for the West Coast. I have no regrets over the move. We’ve been together for over 20 years, and I can’t imagine life without him. But sometimes, when I’m watching a musical, I feel a twinge of pain. A remembrance of a dream unfulfilled. Then I take a breath and remember how much I love my life. No regrets.

The piece of wisdom you would pass onto a child…

Never diminish yourself, or let anyone else make you feel that you don’t matter – that you are not valid, just as you are. I think we all try very hard to conform to the world, and that makes me very sad. Be the only you that exists in the world, and never let anyone else tell you that you need to be different. You do not. Your differences are what you make you – you!

The philosophy that underpins your life…

Work to live and do not live to work. Life should be relished and enjoyed, and even if you do love your job, there is so much more to the world than your career. Travel, laugh with friends, enjoy new foods, make memories with loved ones.

The character you enjoyed writing the most…

For anyone who knows my work – they will not be surprised. Ursula Moolay was one of the first characters I ever wrote. She has been in a number of books of mine. The Trouble With Off-Campus Housing (Drag Queen Paranormal Mystery/Romance), Fault Lines (LGBT Mystery), and a few of The Drag Queen Detective books. She’s also getting her own spin off from that world. The fact that she was inspired by the real Ursula Moolay, makes her a character that always has my heart.

The book you enjoyed planning/writing the most…

I like to write a lot from my own experiences. Writing Fault Lines, a book that it is more about me than anything else. A lot of myself was poured into that novel, and the rehashing of memories and pain that I had to relive to write it was the very best therapy. It’s not a complete autobiography, in any way – but I am there.

And the promo… I thought the idea behind this just sounded so much fun! The Clubhouse is a piece of fiction, but it comes from a moment I had in my own life. That first love, or awakening of your sexuality is a hard thing to let go of, even when you should. Two boys ripped apart by circumstance – just as they began to explore who they were – finds each other once again, in the same place as grown men. Sometimes slipping back into the past is as simple as pulling on a sweater.
