Sandy Sullivan is a romance author, who, when not writing, spends her time with her husband Shaun on their farm in middle Tennessee. She loves to ride her horses, play with their dogs and relax on the porch, enjoying the rolling hills of her home south of Nashville. County music is a passion of hers and she loves to listen to it while she writes.
She is an avid reader of romance novels and enjoys reading Nora Roberts, Jude Deveraux and Susan Wiggs. Finding new authors and delving into something different helps feed the need for literature. A registered nurse by education, she loves to help people and spread the enjoyment of romance to those around her with her novels. She loves cowboys so you'll find many of her novels have sexy men in tight jeans and cowboy boots.
Q. What is your favorite genre to write?
A. I write mostly western historical and western contemporary, but I'm delving into erotica too. I have yet to write a mnage, but it's tickling the back of my brain at the moment.
Q. Where do you get your ideas for your stories?
A. I can get an idea from a dream, a song, seeing someone in the grocery store it doesn't matter. I'm open to suggestions.
Q. What is your favorite time to write?
A. Any time that is quiet in my house. Usually when my husband isn't home. LOL
Q. Do you have a picture in your mind when you start a story about what hero/heroine looks like?
A. Most definitely. I love men with nice chests, some chest hair, six pack abs and dimples! I love dimples!
Q. Would you do a book tour and do you suggest that for getting the word out about your books?
A. I would love to do a book tour. I think it's a great idea and I think that maybe getting several authors from the same publishing house doing one together would be really cool.
Q. How do you keep a person's interest in your novel after the first couple of pages?
A. The easiest way for me to keep a person's interest is to start with action. If the story jumps right into the middle of action, they are less likely to put it down.
Q. Out of the novels you've written, who is your favorite hero?
A. It has to be Tanner in Cowboy Love. He's so tough, but so soft when it comes to Amy. I just love a guy that can be tough as nails when he needs to be, but loving, caring and compassionate with the woman he loves.
Q. What do you do to get in the mood when you are writing a love scene?
A. Umlet's see. I usually need it quiet in the house. I'll sit back, close my eyes and run through the scene in my head before I actually write the scene. It's much easier to write it if I can picture what's going to happen.
Q. Do your love scenes get you as worked up as they do the readers?
A. You bet! If they don't get me worked up, how can I expect them to get the reader involved?
Q. What are you currently working on?
A. I'm working on a series actually. The first piece has been contracted by Siren and it's called Wild Wyoming Nights. The second is also completed although not contracted yet and I'm writing the third as we speak. The first installment is about a woman who loses her husband in the 9/11 attacks in NYC. He was a firefighter. Their dream was to raise their kids on some property where she could raise horses, so she takes his life insurance and moves to Wyoming. She meets her oh so sexy neighbor and sparks fly, but there is also some paranormal in there.
