Caitlyn O’Leary

Average Rating:

Caitlyn O’Leary was born and raised in a small town in the Pacific Northwest. She’s been an avid reader all her life. Her earliest creative writing endeavors consisted of “ghost writing” exercises in which she pretended to be her younger brothers and sisters when she did their homework assignments, before they turned them in as their own. Years in corporate America honed her ability to manipulate words by day, while at night she continued to read everything she could get her hands on, including many, many steamy romances!

Now, happily married to her long, tall Texan and living in Southern California, Caitlyn has finally found the time to write erotic Happily Ever Afters for Siren. She enjoys swimming, travelling, writing, babysitting her nieces and nephews, spending time with friends and family and doing lots of “research” for her upcoming novels with her husband.

Q: If you had to choose to give up one, which would it be, chocolate or sex?

A: Good-Bye cruel world, I couldn’t live here, if I was denied either one! Of course, the opposite is also implied…my happiest moments include both sex and chocolate at the same time.

Q: Why did you choose to write erotica?

A: I always knew I wanted to be a writer, and I was a fan of romances, so I was always going to write Happily Ever Afters. In the last few years, much to my husband’s delight, I’ve become a fan of erotica. I wrote a bit and found I was good at it. I truly believe we all need a little mental stimulation to keep us fantasizing and happy. This, in turn, makes our real lives so much sweeter!

Q: Describe your idea of the perfect first date.

A: A restaurant table in a dark corner, where you find yourselves talking for hours, and there is something chocolate to share for dessert!

Q: Since you’re married, describe your first date with your husband.

A: I was forty-five minutes late to meeting him, and he was walking out the door when I showed up. I did a sort of interview to find out if he was a “good guy”. He said he never felt more comfortable on a date. I got a lot of great information that convinced me he was a great guy and we should go out again!

Q: Do you fall in love with the characters you write?

A: I fall in love with them every single time. In Trusting Chance I loved Chance’s mischievous humor and caring when he schemed. I loved Sam’s over protective, sometimes domineering side, but that he also had inner demons that he needed to work out. I fell in love with Josie as a great friend of mine, (even if she was so small that she could be carried around everywhere by the heroes!)

Q: Where do you get the ideas to develop your characters?

A: Some things are definitely art imitating life, which makes it easy for me to understand what the characters are going through. Other things are just internal struggles that I’ve battled within my own psyche. I’m also an avid people watcher, and have worked with and listened to others for years. I’ve been blessed to see so many people struggle and grow. I hope that my characters have the very real strength of others that I have known.

Q: What series do you read and can’t wait for the next installment?

A: I love Sophie Oak’s Siren in the City and Bliss… I’m just waiting on the edge of my seat. I need more!

Q: Do you have a favorite activity to recharge your batteries before you start a new project?

A: I attempt to take a few days off, get in some quality time with friends and family who I might have been ignoring. But then the voices in my head force me back in front of the keyboard.

Q: Do you ever get angry at the characters you write?

A: Yes, occasionally I get a little impatient them. My characters remind me of me, they are always doing something to paint themselves into a corner.

My characters don’t do things maliciously or stupidly they usually are trying to do what’s right, but they make a mess of things and it requires other characters to set them straight. I regularly require the people in my life to help put me back on the rails, as well. Thank God for good friends and family!
