Iona Blair is a multi-published author whose erotic novels are often described by reviewers as "shocking." Iona lives in an old converted lighthouse on the Pacific Coast, where her thoughts run as wild as the weather.


Q: How do you get the ideas for your novels?

A: I really don't have any idea, although storylines usually present themselves in the wee small hours. Then I mould them together later in the day.

Q: Are your characters based on real people?

A: They're more like a composite. Some aspects of their personality and circumstances may be borrowed from several people I know.

Q: How do you name your characters?

A: I start out with names that sound "right" but may change them afterwards as the characters and story develops. Hannah, in The Red Velvet Horse, was named after a favorite Aunt, who is also my best friend.

Q: What do you do when you're not writing?

A: I catch up on housework! And I love to walk on the cliffs around my home.

Q: What is your favorite place?

A: The sea. I love its voice and changing moods. That's why I live in a lighthouse.

Q: Are you writing anything at the moment?

A: Yes, a sequel to The Red Velvet Horse.
