S. E. Rise is better knowns to family, friends, and co-workers as Dale Reierson. I met Dale a little over a year ago on Facebook. It has been an exciting ride ever since. Dale is a wickedly talented writer, a great friend, and amazing husband and father. With kids to raise, and a night job that keeps him busy, I have no idea how he finds the time to type out some pretty amazing books. Some I have read, some are still on my ever growing “tbr” pile. He’s also an avid fisherman. Oh, and let us not forget all the delicious food recipes and pictures he posts on facebook. The man is a food God. I gain 5lbs just looking at the pictures alone! Wonder if he will add Cookbook to his list of books that he has put out?! Think about it Dale!
S.E. Rise is the author of many books, in many genres. Horror, Thrillers, Romance, Paranormal and Erotica. I lean towards the horror, thrillers and paranormal books. As my sister, she reads the others. He is a member of International Thriller Writers Inc. To his acclaim is the Amazon bestselling erotic thriller series- Simmering. He is the Captain on an Advance Life Support Ambulance and lives in Anchorage, Alaska. Brilliant books, well written, and once you start, you won’t want to stop until you hit the very last page.

Simmering by S E Rise
Who would you rather find in your bedroom, a steamy hose-wielding fireman or a dangerously obsessed ex-boyfriend? What if you found both? Romance writer Allison Fairchild is growing frustrated with her first attempt at Erotica until she reads a well-timed magazine article. What working man makes the best lover? The article sparks an idea and her eyes are irresistibly drawn to the top-ranked firemen just across the street. It might be coincidence or driven by fate but it is all the motivation she needs.
Ali has herself assigned to a firehouse and is committed to doing her job; getting incredible sex stories from actual firefighters and, in the process, try not to become one. At least that’s her intention until she meets the Captain, a by-the-rules professional with an enticing off-duty wild streak. Ali and the Captain put their wills to the test to resist the chemistry heating up between them. But unbeknownst to Ali, her cheating ex-boyfriend has set his eyes upon her again and if he can’t have her, no one can.
Will Ali break “the rules” with the Captain before she can finish the book or will her ex’s frightening obsession inevitably destroy them all?
Morning Star by S E Rise
The Angels found the daughters of men desirable.
We still do.
I am Lucifer, the Morning Star and I have Dominion over the Earth. God has destroyed the Earth countless times and I have survived through it all.
I always survive.
You can hate me all you want but just remember that I have the good tasting candy-the kind you like and want. The kind you need. I have known, yes in the Biblical sense, the most beautiful women in all of history.
Shall I tell you a story or two?
Take a walk with me and I will show you what the world is really like. It’s your choice-it is always your choice.
There is a beginning, there will be an end but the moments in between are where the story is found.
And, if you are wondering, the answer is yes, the Angel Gabrielle does have a sexy ass.
She always has.
That is mine as well.

Jacob Clauson, a long term resident at the Reinhold Asylum for the Criminally Insane, is the monster responsible for murdering Robert’s parents.

The power is out, the doorknob to the room spins in his grip and now there are screams outside the door. All the doors are open and the real monsters are on the loose. Robert’s reality becomes a spellbound nightmare and to survive he must trust a murderer, survive a gauntlet of madness and learn to believe in real monsters
Sevenfold by S E Rise
Thomas awakens to a nightmare. There are Angels, Demons and hideous creatures he can’t identify. The plains of Eden are darkened by the host of Lucifer’s Legions. Their attacks upon the walls of Heaven are never ending and his army is growing thin. If Cain is the only mortal man upon this battlefield, what does that make Thomas? At night the wasted cities of mankind’s past arise from Eden’s desert sands and they salvage what they can before the dawn. Behind him, he can feel the judging eyes of the Archangel’s as they stand atop the walls; they do not join the battles unless they must. The walls of heaven are guarded by the souls of mankind and failure is not an option in the land of the dead.
Piss or Get off the Pot (Time to write your novel) by S E Rise
I wrote Piss or Get Off the Pot because I have a method for writing a novel that is very user friendly.
I am just a guy who has figured out a way, through much trial and error, how to write and put together a novel for pretty much any genre.
My Genre is Horror/Science Fiction/Fantasy and some Erotica. I will not be able to write the words or make the sentences that you will need to complete your novel.
You will have to do that, but I can guide and help you.

It is a place where the messages in bottles are washed ashore and the old forgotten paths can unerringly lead you home.
It is the barrier between the now and oblivion.

25. Is there anything you would like to add that I might have missed?
I am film director as well. I did something in the summer of 2014 that changed my life. My buddy was cleared of Cancer and he came to me with an idea. He wanted to finish his Bucket List. We all know what a Bucket List is. He asked me to direct a movie. His journey on a motorcycle to the top of the world. To Deadhorse Alaska. I said yes. This is our movie. 50% of the proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.
An inspirational film for all ages. A majestic journey of the human soul.
Sam Dresel was diagnosed with end stage cancer and given six weeks to live. During chemotherapy and his battle for life, he made a bucket list. As many victims of cancer know these are the hopes and dreams for better days.
When he unexpectedly won his battle with cancer he decided to follow those dreams-to complete that Bucket List. This is one of those items on the list.
A motorcycle ride to the top of the world. To ride as far north as one can possibly go. Being a firefighter he knew the meaning of tough but he never knew how tough this journey would be.
He and his team, Balinda O’Neal and Dale Reierson, set out at the Pacific Ocean in Homer, Alaska and traveled north. All the way to DeadHorse, Alaska. This film is dedicated to everyone who has, knows, or misses someone with this dreaded disease.
26. Any advice for future authors?
Just remember to tell a great story as you write. Never edit as you go, because you will be editing so much that you won’t be able to write. You can’t edit what isn’t written.
I think that covers everything. Dale is an amazing, talented guy. I hope you give him and his books a try. You won’t be disappointed. Buy him, Read him, Review him!!! Go! Now!
Thank you so much Dale for letting me spotlight you this month. You Rock!!
