Daisy Harris lives in Seattle with her husband, daughters, and way too many pets. When she isn't writing, she's tweeting. And when she isn't doing that, she's camping, biking, reading, spending time with kids, or gardening.

Daisy loves to hear from readers, and looks forward to receiving your emails and feedback!

Q: When did you decide you wanted to be a writer?

A: When I was in fifth grade I wanted to be an author, and to write historical fiction like Leon Uris. However, once I reached Jr. High I started getting poor grades in English and good grades in the sciences, so I gave up on my dream for a good, long time.

Fast-forward 25 years or so and I was working as a technical and scientific writer. I had a break between freelance assignments and decided to try my hand at erotic romance. Mere Temptation was born! I haven't stopped writing since.

 

Q: When is your favorite time to write?

A: I write at all times of day, whenever I get the chance. But my favorite time by far is 5 pm. I get the husband (who works from home) to watch the kids and I sit at a little restaurant/bar near my house with my laptop. The place is empty right when they open, and I can sit at the window table and watch the world go by.

 

Q: Where do you get your ideas?

A: I always start by asking myself, "What if things were the opposite?" For Mere Temptation, I wondered why a mermaid would want to be human, or whether she might rather stay a mermaid. (I never really understood Ariel's motivation in The Little Mermaid.)

For Mere Passion, I wondered what it would be like to meet a real knight in shining armor- would he appear noble and drool-worthy, or would his social and political beliefs be so abhorrent I'd want to smack him? In answering that question, General Kai Nasu was born, one of my favorite heroes of all time.

 

Q: How do you come up with your characters?

Ah, scary question! I suppose most of my female characters embody parts of myself- though usually parts I don't like. It's great fun to take some personality trait I feel insecure about and blow it up into the defining feature of a character. Then I can show how the character grows into themselves over the arc of a book. It's tremendously cathartic.

As for heroes- oftentimes I'll choose a trait that bothers me in others- like prejudice, or conceit, and use it as a lightning rod for ideas. My heroes never start out perfect. In fact, usually they start out downright un-likable. I love to see them grow, and change, to find the kernel of greatness within.

 

Q: Why e-books?

A: I'm a huge fan of electronic media, especially for romance and erotic romance. Though I've always been an avid reader, I never started reading romance until I got a Kindle. I think readers read more widely and take more risks when they can buy in an electronic format. I know I did!

 

Q: What's next?

A: I'm working on a new series involving zombie-robot hybrids. I may write some more Ocean Shifters stories, depending on how readers feel about the world. So if you want more sexy sea dragons, mermaids and sharks, let me know!
