Q: Why erotic romance?
A: Because, in my opinion, it speaks to the human experience unlike anything else. Erotic romance is full of passion and longing and love and hardship and fear. There is nothing off limits – perhaps with the exception of a non-HEA ending. The emotion in erotica is raw and palpable. The sex isn’t disguised for the sake of propriety. This is a brave, radical genre that connects with readers on a whole new level.
Q: Why did you become a writer?
A: Because there was nothing else for me. I was born with my head way up in the clouds, and it wasn’t long before I decided to leave real life by the wayside and reside happily within my own hyperactive imagination. And when you spend so much time stuck in your head, you’ll find that your ideas start to demand an existence on paper.
Q: What would you be doing if you weren’t a writer?
A: I was extremely successful as an English student in university, and I suppose that if writing books was off the table, I’d want to make a living by studying them. I’d go back to school and work towards a PhD. Maybe I’d even write my dissertation on erotic romance – if they’d let me, that is.
Q: What is your writing day like?
A: A typical writing day begins early in the morning with a big cup of juice and an open laptop. From there, the challenges are many: a cat that tries to wiggle its way onto my lap, a house that desperately needs vacuuming, and a cursor that insists on browsing the internet, to name a few.
Q: Where do you get your inspiration from?
A: I’d be lying if I didn’t say that I get quite a bit of inspiration from real life. Luckily, I have a husband who is more than willing to assist me when I feel the need to, ahem, perform some “research” for a sex scene. But I definitely get more than enough ideas from my exceptionally naughty imagination.
