Q: How did you get into writing?
A: On a dare! I was having a lively chat over lunch with two coworkers about erotica romance and they dared me to try to write a story for them. You can't turn down a double-dog dare and Afire is the result.
Q: Is writing love scenes difficult?
A: It's kind of fun actually. I usually start a story by writing at least one love scene because I find it solidifies the characters' personalities and how they'd react sexually and emotionally to each other. I was in a coffee bar writing a love scene and overheard two elderly women behind me reading over my shoulder!
Q: Do you have a writing schedule?
A: Yes, whenever I have ten spare minutes! Like most women, I'm juggling a few different things so I take advantage of any spare time to jot down a scene. I'm writing my thesis right now but like writing stories better - I think my professor would be dismayed by my priorities.
Q: Have other authors helped you?
A: Absolutely. I'm a fan of several authors including two best-selling authors here at Siren (Tymber Dalton and Stormy Glenn) and would drop them a line to let them know how much I enjoyed a story. Many authors are lovely people happy to give guidance and advice to new authors. I really appreciated their help.
Q: Your heroines tend to be a bit curvier. Is that deliberate?
A: Yes. Since I'm more likely to chunky dunk than skinny dip, I frankly wanted a HEA for someone like me--after all, chunky chicks are just as worthy of true love as anyone else. Media bombards us with hurtful and harmful messages but Marilyn Monroe was said to be a size 12 and the most common clothing size is 14. I believe women should embrace their inner goddesses by wearing figure flattering clothes that emphasize their lush curves. And of course, nothing is sexier than being confident in your own skin!
