Q: What inspired you to start writing erotic novels?
A: I've always enjoyed reading erotica and romance novels. As a young woman in college, I would be discussing these very academic topics and dense literature, but was always secretly reading romance novels and erotica on the side. They helped me release steam. As soon as I removed the self-inflicted stigma and realized that smart, strong women could really enjoy erotic novels, I gave myself permission to write this kind of literature for other people. I mean, we mothers and working women are also sexual beings, and I like opening the doors to our erotic fantasies. It's what I love writing the most.
Q: Do you have any idiosyncratic writing habits or rituals?
A: A beverage! When I write in the morning, I don't feel right if I don't have my mug of coffee right there. At night, I like to have a glass of wine, a cup of tea, or some juice next to me. But I always have to have a beverage next to my computer when I write, or I just feel off.
Q: What qualities do you most want your characters to embody?
A: I always want my characters to learn something surprising about themselves over the course of a book. I think it's how we grow, not just as sexually empowered people, but in general, being constantly curious and willing to try new things, to challenge our limitations.
Q: Have you had any real life encounters that have found their way into your book?
A: Haha. No comment! Let's just say that my husband is really inspirational!
Q: What's next? What are you currently working on?
A: I have been on a real fantasy kick in the past year, thinking and writing a lot about magic realms and enchanted forests. I don't want to give too much away, but I'm working on something along those lines with some really sexy angles that I think will speak to a lot of secret fantasies. The next book is going to be really steamy. I know it's been a real turn-on writing it, letting my imagination go into some very hot places!
