Penelope Swift

Average Rating:

Penelope Swift is an avid reader and enjoys creating stories that transport the reader. She believes that nothing compares to a good story - well, except for chocolate. She enjoys writing almost as much as reading, and spends a good deal of her day imagining really good sex, which isn't as easy as it sounds, but does make the work day fly by.

Q: Why did you begin writing?

A: I have a very boring job, as I'm sure many of us do. I would find myself writing scenes during my down time. It started out as a sort of "Hey, this would be cool," and I would rewrite bits of books I had read. Eventually I started writing with my own characters, and I found it was even more fun to create a story of my own imagining. After a while, I had several stories floating around so I decided to try and submit some of the longer ones.

Q: When did you first consider yourself a writer?

A: The first time I asked someone to read one and they told me, "Hey, this is pretty good." I had to be kind of picky because my stories have a ton of sex. I didn't want my friends to think I spent all of my time thinking about sex, even though I kind of do.

Q: Do you have a specific writing style?

A: Disorganized! I write and write and write, then I go back and edit it until it resembles English.

Q: How much of what you write is realistic?

A: I'd like to think all of it! Good sex isn't just for the movies, after all.

Q: Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?

A: No comment! Although I am happily married (add eyebrow wiggle here).

Q: What books have most influenced your life most?

A: I grew up on a steady diet of Johanna Lindsay when I was younger, and I've always loved her her books. I also read a lot of V.C. Andrews, and I hope one day to be able to write something as gripping as her books.
