Q: How long did it take you to write An Unconventional Love?
A: Not as long as you would think. About 6 weeks. Yet I wrote almost non-stop the entire time, getting little to no sleep.
Q: Where did the inspiration come from?
A: I am embarrassed to say, but I allowed myself to view porn. The porno I saw consisted of 2 bisexual men and 1 female and I was amazed that I actually found it to be beautiful. The way all three were so considerate of each other, pleasuring each other, including each other. And I thought 'there could be a story here.'
Q: Do you condone such couplings?
A: I like to believe that I have an open mind when it comes to sexuality. And before you ask, no, I have never participated in a ménage a trois myself.
Q: Do your characters 'speak' to you?
A: Not in words, per se, but they have disturbed my sleep with a line of dialogue or a scene, forcing me to get out of bed and boot up the computer so I can get it down right away.
Q: Do you have any future plans for these characters that you created?
A: Do I! Their story both opens and closes six years in the future, so there is a lot of stuff they can experience as they work out the dynamics of their relationship. Plus, I know what I want to occur in their future as they mature and only hope that the readers stick around to find out.
Q: Do you believe there is a male audience for your book?
A: I have always been of the firm belief that if men would read at least one romance novel in their lives, they would have a whole new understanding of women. Not to mention all the pointers they could receive <wink>.
Q: Do you use such language in your own life?
A: As I like to say, 'the views of the characters do not necessarily reflect the views of the author.' But I can hardly censor my characters, can I?
Q: Is Rainey Daye your real name?
A: Alas, it is not. My given name is Lorraine and Rainey is the nickname my dad had originally wanted to call me by. (I have no idea why they didn't). Daye is the first syllable of my mom's maiden name. I just couldn't resist.
