Cherrie Mack

Average Rating:

Cherrie Mack grew up in Flushing Queens, NY, the youngest child of six. The city’s diversity gave her a great appreciation for many different cultures and lifestyles. After love finally claimed the girl from the city and dragged her to the suburban madness of Long Island, she settled into a quiet life with her new husband. Two children and one mini-van later, the family found themselves moving towards the sunny skies of Florida where they currently reside. With her focus still very much on her family, Cherrie squeezes in time to write. The publication of her debut novel, Ache of Desire has given her the confidence to allow her to spend more time writing and less time cooking and cleaning.

Q: Tell me about your book. How did you come up with the story?

A: Have you ever wondered about what happened to the girl you admired back in college? The one who had the perfect plan for the perfect life? I did. This story is about what happens after the glory days. I sat down at my computer one day and began to write. Not knowing anything about the plot or characters, I found myself giving life to a group of amazing people who I would befriend. I love them all.

Q: How did you get interested in writing erotic romance?

A: I love books and my most favorite genre was suspense. I find myself going through spurts of time when I read and read and read. Once I got my kindle all hell broke loose. I read it on the grocery store line and the car pickup line and my daughter’s girl-scout meetings. Romance was the hot topic and my first erotic romance download put me on the road to becoming a romance-a-holic.

Q: What is the hardest part of writing for you?

A: Finding the time to write. I can write in piece meal and have been known to write a page, cook dinner then jump right back in without missing a beat, but I’d rather have a day without interruption. (Which for me, generally does not happen too often.) If it does, I can easily write for ten to twelve hours without stopping.

Q: What are you working on now?

A: I am currently working on the two follow up books to Circle of Six.

Q: What advice would you give aspiring writers?

A: Do not give up, and listen to the professionals. The publishers, the editors and agents who give you a critique or revision suggestions really do know what they are talking about. Sometimes we can be too close to our work to recognize the flaws. It’s like your child, everyone thinks theirs is perfect but it takes a fresh pair of eyes to show you different.
