Bryl R. Tyne: Almost Too Silly for Words

The enchanting author and bon vivant, Bryl R. Tyne met with me this week for dinner at chez Tyne (where pork chops, Cheez Doodles, and Kool-Aid were on the menu) to give me some of the silliest answers I have yet gotten to my series of silly questions.

Bryl doesn't miss a trick when answering my impertinent queries:

1. If you could invite any famous person, dead or alive, for dinner, what would you eat?
Whatever he or she asked me to eat, depending on the offer.

2. Who do you think you are?
Your best friend or your worst nightmare. You decide. [RR: BFF forever, of course!)

3. What’s your problem?
That answer depends on which one of my "friends" you were to ask.

4. If you could have one wish, would you give it to me?
You're fucking kidding me, right? [RR: I have revised my answer to "worst nightmare"; see above.]

5. Where you at?
My point, exactly.

6. If you had to choose only one vice, what would it be?

7. What’s your favorite brand of cereal?
Fruity Pebbles or Frosted Mini-Wheats, I enjoy either.

8. When you wake up in the morning, what celebrity do you most resemble?
You know that scene from the movie, Michael, where first thing in the morning, Michael the archangel (John Travolta) tromps downstairs in boxers, scratching his stomach, cigarette hanging from his lip and snags a beer from the fridge? Yeah...that's me.

9. Do you know your ass from a hole in the ground?
Not according to some, but who's listening to them? I'm not.

10. Do you have anything you’d like to plug?
Yeah, my books. Most readers and reviewers have loved Ignited and the story of Kendra and Val in If I Were a Lady..., and I think you will too. My short story, "Best Unspoken," is also getting excellent reviews. All three are available from Noble Romance Publishing.

I also have two stories contracted for two separate anthologies this year.

Geeks or nerds, we all love them or have loved them, I'm sure. Maybe you're still loving one. Anyhow, I'm just as sure you'll love the NERDVANA Anthology from STARbooks Press with my story, "Exposed," already available from pre-order from Amazon.

Being a vampire isn't always about the blood But the drive, the penetration, now that's "where it's at." As is my story of a government experiment gone awry and how one lust-ridden VAMMP contends with the object of his desire: his commanding officer. VAMMP: Conquering Dissension is one of many great stories in Ravenous Romance's Gay vampire anthology, Boys of the Bite.

BRYL R. TYNE is a wrangler by nature and a writer by choice. After youth spent trapped at the feet of a brutal, self-absorbed master, Bryl broke free to discover life. Currently, residing in South Carolina with a loving Sugar Daddy, the malcontent wanderer is much tamer. Though the time spent traversing the diversity of paths, encountering as wildly an assortment of lovers, and forever cherishing the shared passions along the way, Bryl has determined one aspect of life that’s proved unchanging—Love Holds no Boundaries.


  1. You're on a roll kid, you keep churning them out faster than it takes to read an interview with you...I'm impressed

  2. It was great, Rick, though you never did comment on my sauteed Cheez Doodles...

  3. Thanks, Mick. Just giving you enough stories to keep you busy while I finish up an actual "Novel" :)

  4. I'd ask for the recipe for the sauteed Cheese Doodles, but I think I can figure it out. Great interview, Bryl.

  5. Honey,I love that: a wrangler by nature,a writer by choice.

    Victor (who can only post here anonymously because Rick is jealous of my naturally curly hair.)

  6. "I'd ask for the recipe for the sauteed Cheese Doodles, but..."

    Lena, darling...that's a cop out 'cause you know I don't share family recipes. However, I will offer you a bit of advice - Michelob Light works best ;)

  7. Hey Bryl,
    Great answers. You had me laughing out loud and that's always good.

  8. "Honey,I love that: a wrangler by nature,a writer by choice."

    Thanks, Victor, but given my nature, it was either find a way to productively and creatively express my views or serve time...I simply chose the most beneficial for moi.

  9. Thanks for stopping by, Rhian. You know I'm always happy to leave a smile on someone's face ;)

  10. Good clean fun for the whole family, with a twist I didn't see coming. Two thumbs up!

  11. Ooh...Two thumbs up from The Ethan Day! If only I could "squee"... Not.

    Thanks for stopping by, Ethan :)

  19. Thanks for stopping by, Lisa. Actually, I stumbled into writing more by fiat and am now bound. I like to believe I do all I do by choice (denial). But you got to admit, Victor's right. It does sound good! LOL
