Q: What is a typical day like?
A: To be honest I don’t really have a typical day. It depends on my mood when I wake up what I will be doing that day. I may head into town for some retail therapy, have a lazy day, or if I’m in “the zone” with writing, I get so immersed in the process, I have to finish it as soon as I can. I don’t write every day, or keep a journal, since I put a lot of myself into writing the stories. I’ll let you figure out which bits.
Q: Who are your favorite authors?
A: I like the romance of Nora Roberts. She also writes as murder/mystery types of books as J D Robb. I liked the Brac Village stories of Lynn Hagen which are gay erotica which I discovered to my surprise are kind of hot...a surprise since I hadn’t considered gay romance before, but sexy is sexy! Sandrine Gasq-Dion is another great author, and I love the assassin/shifter series. Of the LoveXtreme authors, my favorite is Gabrielle Evans’s Fatefully Yours series.
Q: Do you have any formal qualification for writing?
A: No. I left school at the age of sixteen with no qualifications. I had to move schools as a child every two years, and having such a disrupted education left me having to play catch up each time. When I got to the legal age where I could leave, I walked out of the school gates on my sixteenth birthday and didn’t go back. Later on, in my twenties, I did go back to college, then on to do a degree just to prove to myself that I wasn’t a complete dimwit, although they weren’t related to the writing field, but did give me a chance to practice writing in essay style. For me, reading lots has helped me to find a style and genre that appeals to me, which led to me giving the whole writing thing a go and I am constantly thinking of potential storylines...it can be a bit irritating when someone is trying to talk to me and I zone out!
Q: Why the LoveXtreme imprint?
A: In my fantasies I am this wild woman who is witty, sarcastic and sexy with the ability to attract sexy guys. I find the ménage genre very hot and read a couple of stories from this imprint, and found it was great reading. I love the fact that in stories you can explore your wilder side, kind of a guilty secret pleasure. Of course, now that I’ve put that down, it’s not so much a secret anymore!
Q: Who’s your ideal man?
A: I think I may have described eight of them in Sexy in the Sun! I have a thing for blonds, though, and think Charlie Hunnam is very sexy. I like a man who can laugh but isn’t nasty with it, like laughing at others for the sake of it. Orlando Bloom is another hottie, especially in his Kingdom of Heaven days.
Q: What inspires you in writing?
A: I constantly have bits of storylines whizzing around in my head. I can be inspired by a person, reading about something or someone or an experience I’ve had. Basically anything and everything has the potential to inspire. I quite often just go off instinct and imagination, especially with dialogue. I like humor in the books I read, not over the top, just to keep the balance, so I try to put that into what I write.
