Q: What is something that few people know about you?
A: Well, there are a lot of things that only a few people know about me, but if you want quirky things that I don’t normally admit to, then here we go. I love Star Trek. I stay up almost every night to watch Everyone Loves Raymond, Frasier, Law and Order SVU, and then Star Trek. I do most of my writing while those shows are playing in the background.
Oh, and I love Jerry Clower, he’s one of the funniest people I’ve ever heard.
Q. Do you read a lot?
A: It depends on my deadlines. If I have a lot going on, I will actually read. Shame on me for going into the world of avoidance, but it does help me. I think that’s why I love to write. I get to be the creator of someone’s world of avoidance, where he or she can escape real life for a few moments .
Q. Does becoming published make a difference in your writing?
A: Being published makes me aware that each book I write must be better than the previous, or at least just as well written. If not, then I disappoint my readers and editors. Neither are people I want to disappoint.
Q. Where do you get your ideas for plots?
A: Normally I get them from the radio. It may seem strange, but while I’m waiting in the line to pick up my kiddo from school, I listen to the radio. I can’t tell you all how many times I’ve heard a song and thought, “Wow, if I tweaked this or that it’d be a great book!” That’s usually where I get my plots.
Q. Does your family know you write erotic romance?
A: My immediate family knows. Well, one of my brothers doesn’t really know. If he does, he ignores it. But, here’s a funny story that just happened to me. My sister-in-law called to tell me she’d just gotten a Kindle. Yay, fun, fun. But then she said, “I’m about to buy your books, which one should I read first?”
I said, “NEITHER!” No way in hell did I want my brother (the one who acknowledges that I write erotic romance) to read my stories. And I knew he would because he’s just too curious, and my sister-in-law loves to get new ideas, which grosses me out because it’s my brother she’s wanting to experiment with! YUCK!
So a few hours went by, and then I got a text from my brother that said, “I’m scarred for life!”
Now I will never be able to stop blushing when my family is around.
