Q: Do you base your characters on real people?
A: My husband keeps asking me this same question. He’s convinced all my heroes are based on him. I let him live in this delusional state because it means he’s usually in a great mood. In reality, some of my characters may be loosely based on people I know. For instance, one of my characters in a book I’ve been working on is an Environmental Scientist in South Florida. Hmmm…I wonder where I got that idea?
Q: What do you do in your spare time?
A: Spare time? Do people actually have that? Truthfully, I have to consciously carve out spare time. Otherwise, I’d spend all my time writing. I love going to movies, walking on the beach and visiting some of the great destinations here in Florida. And I love going to Disneyworld. Seriously, I’m like a little kid. I have the mouse ears headband to prove it.
Q: What made you decide to write?
A: I’ve always loved to write. When I was younger, it was mostly the obligatory flowery, love-struck poetry. Well, okay, there was also that 300-page Star Wars trivia book that’s probably still lurking in the bottom of a drawer somewhere. I spent years writing stories and then throwing them out. Then one day, not that long ago, I decided I was finished talking about writing a book and sat down and actually did it. I wroteRunaway Heart in two weeks. I was obsessed!
Q: Is it easy to write sex scenes?
A: Ha! After being married for 23 years, you’d think it would be easy, right? Um, not so much. There’s a huge difference between doing it and writing about it. The first time I wrote a sex scene, I broke out in a cold sweat. It took a very strong cocktail to get me through that scene!
Q: What does your husband think about you writing erotic romance?
A: He wants to know where the heck I’ve been hiding all of these ideas for the last 23 years! One of the series I’m currently working on is a ménage and I’ve told him, in no uncertain terms, not to get any ideas! He says he always knew I had a talent for writing, but my choice of genres took him by complete surprise. He thinks it’s great!
Q: What can we expect to see from you in the future?
A: I’m currently working on a paranormal ménage series set in South Florida. I’m also working on the sequel to Runaway Heart, because Jaxson insists that I tell his story and he won’t leave me alone until I do.
Q: Is your desk messy or neat?
A: It’s a disaster! Seriously, the military could conduct search and rescue missions on it.
Q: PC or laptop?
A: Currently a PC, but I’m in the market for a laptop so I can take it to the beach and write while I’m watching the waves (and the surfers).
Q: Do you believe in love at first sight?
A: Absolutely! I knew on our first date that I was going to marry my husband. It took a while to knock some sense into him, but he came around eventually, too.
