Shannon is happily married and the mother of four children, stepmother to three more, and overly indulgent “mimi” to some very spoiled grandchildren. She has two crazy dogs and lives in the south and thinks everybody should. She likes cooking, and loves to eat. She loves romance books, travel, fast cars, good-looking men (don’t we all, honey?) and the mountains near her home. She loves to write about a little boy on boy action, and likes to imagine other worlds where everyone would be free to love whomever they wanted without censure. Though Shannon loves contemporary romance, her fantasies are driving her more and more toward fantasy, werewolves, shape shifters and vampires. Look for these coming soon!

Q: What’s your writing day like?

A: If I’m working at home, I get up early, usually by six, and start right in. Writing is a compulsion for me, so I write till somebody stops me. Usually by crawling on my lap and demanding my attention.

 

Q: What are your favorite books to read?

A: Anything romantic, but it needs to be very sexy, very graphic, and funny is a plus.

 

Q: What’s your favorite city in all the world?

A: Got to be Paris, the most beautiful city in the world. I’ve been there a few times and it’s so romantic and gorgeous. The last time I was there, my husband took me up to the top after midnight on a clear, starry night for a sexy kiss. You can’t get more romantic than that!

 

Q: Favorite book of all time?

A: Can’t pick just one! Pride and Prejudice—very cliché, I know, but it’s true. Also Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy—sad and beautiful.

 

Q: Something from this century, perhaps?

A: Anything by Kim Dare, Cherise Sinclair or Lynn Hagen.

 

Q: What do you watch on television?

A: Again, sci-fi and fantasy! Lost Girl is awesome. So is Grimm, Doctor Who, and Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures. All that great stuff! I can’t get enough of it.

 

Q: Where do you get your ideas for your books?

A: Like other authors I know, I do a lot of “What ifs?” What if this boy was alone camping in the woods when...? Or what if a man wrecked his spaceship on a planet full of tiger shape shifters? Or what if twins decided to switch places? My poor mind is teeming with questions all the time!

 

Q: Are you a plotter or seat of the pantster?

A: Definitely a plotter, though my characters do have minds of their owns and take me off in some interesting directions sometimes. Mostly, I try to sit down and at least map out what’s going to happen next.

 

Q: What did you think of the Twilight books?

A: Loved them! Yeah, yeah, I know, sparkly vampires. I didn’t mind that so much. I read Dracula by Bram Stoker, and guess what? It was fantasy too. There are no real vampires, so pretty much anything any author comes up with is fantasy and just enhances the field. I’m totally not a “book snob” and love to see other romance authors do well.

 

Q: What about the success of books like Fifty Shades of Grey?

A: Again, it’s great. I think it will open up the erotic romance field that has so many wonderful writers who are largely undiscovered and overlooked by mainstream America.

 

Q: If you could go back in time to any time period, any place, when would it be, where and why?

A: Gotta love the highlanders of Scotland! I have a Scots heritage, and some of the first romances I ever read were Highlander stories. Very hot! Totally sexy country too.

 

Q: Any hobbies or crafts?

A: I love to paint but hardly have time for it anymore. When I do, I like oils. Oil painting is a lot like sex—time consuming, messy, and beautiful when done right!

 

Q: Anything planned as far as new books?

A: Always! I’ve got notes for a new Vampire series and a new Fae series. Plus a couple more sexy contemporaries. I usually have about two I’m working on at all times.
