Q: How do you come up with your ideas?
A: It usually starts with a scene or a specific character, like Nikolas. From there, I start building the story.
Q: How do you prepare for a writing session?
A: Soda is a must! I have a huge cup that I fill almost to the brim. The curtains have to be up to let the sun in. Sometimes I’ll play a little bit of music (always country). When the itch starts, I just sit down and start pounding on the keys.
Q: Who are your favorite authors?
A: I’m very picky about the authors I read as I often find myself critiquing them as I read. My absolute favorite author is Sophie Oak, though I do enjoy Tymber Dalton (and her various pennames). Others include Cherise Sinclair and Qwilla Rain. Outside of erotica, I read Kresley Cole, Gena Showalter, and Shelly Laurenston, though all three write romance.
Q: Other than writing and reading, what are some of your favorite things to do?
A: I like to go camping and hiking. I walk with my beagle-hound mix, Puddin’, almost every day. I love to cook, trying new recipes that I find online. Other than that, I enjoy just chilling in the living room, watching TV with the family or friends.
Q: What’s your favorite time of day to write?
A: Usually I write whenever my fingers start twitching for the keyboard, but I try to write from late afternoon on. From there, it’s just a matter of when the words start blurring before my eyes.
Q: How do you know when a book is finished?
A: I struggle the most with starting and finishing a book. It’s hard to explain when a book feels finished and sometimes, the feeling never comes. I end up just having to accept that the book needs to end and writing the best ending possible.
