Q: When did you start writing original stories?
A: Oh my, years and years ago! I must have been in the seventh grade, at least, and was just in love with Anne Rice. I wanted to write my own vampire story and my English teacher was my first editor. After that I filled binders full of hand written stories I would work on after my class work was done.
Q: What drove you to see your first novel published?
A: I actually came up with the characters for my circus stories while I was sketching one day. Those illustrations just begged for a proper narrative, so one day I sat down and started typing out a scene. Before I knew the summer had passed and the first full draft was complete, I then realized I couldn't just let it sit on my hard drive.
Q: How does a typical day of writing go for you?
A: Funnily enough I don't have a set regimen when it comes to writing. I blame this on my ever changing schedule of college classes. But I do work on my stories every day, whenever I can, and have a quota to meet in how many pages a week I write. Sometimes I'll have a scene in my head that is just begging to come out and when that happens I'll hurry to get it down lest I forget. Usually though, I outline everything before starting a new story.
Q: Why choose to write erotica?
A: I've been an avid reader of romance for a very long time, and I found erotica along the way. Human sexuality is a fascinating study on its own and erotica has a history that dates back to antiquity. Putting that passion to the page becomes a written kind of art to me. After studying art history and creative writing I found that in penning erotica these very different interests could be blended together.
Q: Will you ever branch out from the historical/steampunk genre?
A: I would love to move into other genres, my head is always full of thoughts for new stories. When I read novels I usually lean towards the paranormal, my favorite authors there are Sherriyln Kenyon and Christine Feehan. But I'm also a fan of fantasy and science fiction, so perhaps I'll challenge myself there one day too.
