Q: What is the most important aspect of a story for you?
A: Likeable characters! I won’t even finish reading a story if I don’t like the hero or heroine. When I write, I strive to create characters that the reader wants to get to know.
Q: Why did you decide to go the erotic romance route?
A: I’ve always loved romance stories, for the exotic scenery, impending danger, or trip back into another time, as well as for the love between the main characters. But when I became an adult I realized that mainstream romance left a great deal of detail to the imagination. I had so much more fun writing about what great sex is really like rather than sugar-coating it, although, that can also be fun!
Q: Do you set time aside every day to write?
A: No, I write when the words are flowing, whether it’s before I go to bed or when I wake up in the middle of the night. Sometimes I can’t write for a few days because I have an exam to study for or other obligations but I definitely write whenever I can.
Q: What does your family think of your stories?
A: My kids think that it’s great that I’m being published, although there are a lot of jokes floating around about how women my age are supposed to be knitting and baking cookies instead of thinking about sex. I just tell them that I’ve been knitting and baking since I was ten.
Q: Do you find it difficult to write sometimes?
A: I can’t read or write in a noisy environment. I’ve always been one of those people who are easily distracted, so when I’m going to write, I set myself up in the most comfortable and quiet spot that I can find.
Q: Do you plan to give up writing when you complete your degree?
A: Absolutely not! Even if I find work right away in my chosen field I will always write because I love telling stories, and I really have way too much fun with this to consider giving it up.
