Q: What inspires you?
A: Everything, and anything! It could be my handsome man flashing me a sly smile. Watching cartoons with my kids, it’s amazing how many messed up cartoons are out there now days. It could be just taking a stroll down town or sitting in the park and watching the world pass me by. This particular story I was watching Inked, and The Losers and Killer Elite. Yeah I like action movies with hot guys.
Q: What made you decide this specific genre?
A: Felt right. It came easily and oh so taboo! Apparently I like taboo subjects. Something I’m learning about myself, so cool that as I age I grow more and more comfortable with life and all it has to offer.
Q: Any other genres interest you?
A: I have written sci-fi, western. Oh goodness. I have a huge weak, wet spot for Cowboys. There is just something about tall, dark, and handsome in a pair of wranglers. Yum! Oh have to mention railroaders too; I am in love with one of those. Contemporary genre, I thought was intimidating but after dabbling a bit I love it! Paranormal, Ooh, werewolves and bloodsucking vampires are an all-time favorite of mine. I do love ménage eroticas and everything I have written has romantic or erotic elements. I am in the beginning stages of being published and none of my other work is out there yet.
Q: Who inspires you?
A: Easy! Cherise Sinclair, Barbara Elsborg, Quilla Rain, India Masters and Cameron Dane to name a few off the top of my head. In my youth I had vowed to be a great writer like Johanna Lindsey, Julie Garwood, and Linda Lael Miller. I love reading and learning different writing styles. I find that I am very picky about writing styles. If you don’t have good flow, I won’t make it through the first page.
Q: What is your favorite part of writing?
A: Being able to create lives, places; my goodness, just to get lost in a dynamic relationship, to create one. To create characters that can come to life on paper! I love creating things. Being able to put words on paper, or screen, and finishing and reading it is an amazing feeling of accomplishment.
Q: What do you find most difficult about writing?
A: Revisions and spelling! Oh goodness, I’m a horrible speller. I thought I would get bored of the story before anything. Nope, I get sick of the unlimited mistakes I make. Thank goodness for editors and everyone else involved for the great patience they have with me.
Q: What do you do in your spare time?
A: I’m a mother and house wife first and foremost. I love being both. Writing is my extra bonus in life. I love hanging with my kids, camping in the summer, hiking, bonfires and beers. Spending time with family and friends are very important to me. Oh I must say collecting pins takes up some of my time as well as Facebooking friends and family. Cooking is fun too, I am the chocolate chip queen as well as the rib queen of the neighborhood and we can’t forget my fresh buns!
Q: What up next for you?
A: Hopefully another book! Giggle. I’m enjoying this ménage and BDSM genre and have a few more up my sleeve that I hope to send out soon. I’m thinking cowboy shifting werewolves? Although, Jarret and Hillary have a past that is in need of sorting, maybe a little renewal of what they mistakenly threw away.
Q: How much time do you spend writing in a day?
A: Honestly… It comes in spurts I could spend a whole day and night going, of course until my fingers get numb and I have to stop. Or I could easily go into routine mode and set aside six specific hours a day to write. Thank goodness my family is patient and understanding. I could be cooking supper and typing a mile a minute and carrying on a conversation with up to four kids at a time. Great thing about motherhood, you learn to multitask and fast. Awesome! I do like to sit on the patio and soak up the sun while I write as well.
Q: Did you base your characters on anyone you know?
A: No. I try to stay away from that. I will take parts of people that I know and incorporate them but most times I like to build my own characters, so much more fun. (My creativity kicking in.) Watching people and learning personas is a habit I’ve had since I was a child. I was the quiet child who sat and listened and watched. My mother always said I would be a storyteller because I was always listening.
Q: How did you come up with Dania’s Destiny?
A: A lonely night, a naughty mind and hot men on the mind. Throw in a mischievous little imp who was in need of a good spanking and, voilà!, we have Dania's Destiny. Oh yes, I did need some suspense so we had to bring in another man to muddle things up. I like nothing more than a strong woman who can hold her own but is more than willing to let two strong men who know she can handle her own step up and handle her and anything coming at her.
