Serena Fairfax

Average Rating:

Serena Fairfax spent her childhood in India, qualified as a Lawyer in England, and joined a large law firm in London. She has published and indie-published (digitally and in print) a number of novels all, but one, having a romance theme and a happy-ever-after ending. Loving That Feeling is her first erotic romance novel to be published by Siren-BookStrand. Serena has also authored a number of short stories that feature on her blog.

The saying: age cannot wither her nor custom stale her infinite variety aptly describes the tug of law that makes the heart beat faster so she hasn’t yet quit the day job although she now practices law part-time.

Serena and her golden retriever, Inspector Morse (who can’t wait to unleash his own Facebook page) divide their time between bustling London and the rural quiet of Kent. As Charles Dickens said: Kent, sir. Everyone knows Kent. Apples, cherries, hops and women.

Q: What do you enjoy most about writing?

A: Well, I have to admit I enjoy the solitude. From time to time I meet fellow writers and we have a good laugh and exchange ideas. I like the creative part of writinggetting the storyline down as a first draftwhich isn’t so very different from the creative part of law. So you could say writing and the law are kissing cousins. The most rewarding aspect of writing is penning those magic words THE END.

Q: What main qualities do you think a writer needs in order to succeed?

A: Perseverance, passion, courage and the hide of a rhino. Someone once said: Genius (talent) begins great works, labor alone finishes them.

Q: Do you have any phobias and, if so, have you ever worked them into your novels?

A: I must confess none at all. There’s a German proverb that goes something like this: Fear makes the wolf bigger than he is. Do you know the list of phobias ranges from A to Z although there isn’t one starting with Q or Y. One that intrigues me is wiccaphobia (not a fear of Wikipedia) which is a fear of witches and witchcraft, and surely no writer has euphobia which is a fear of hearing good news.

Q: Have you ever thought about writing in a different genre? Which genre and why?

A: I’d like to write a chilling thriller in rhyming verse since that would be a hugely exciting challenge. I never say never!

Q: What do you do in your spare time?

A: I’m a sucker for trying new things. I go the whole hog and buy all the gear but seldom follow through. My cupboards are stuffed with a variety of objects such as ice skates, sitar, wetsuit, winemaking equipment, state of the art sewing machine (never unpacked), bee keeping outfit, CD on Learn Swahili in 5 Easy Lessons, and a guide to building a tree house. The one thing I haven’t given up on is swimmingI was Captain of the school swimming team.

Q: Is there someone you’d love to feature in your novels and exterminate?

A: Oh yes, several back-stabbers spring to mind but I prefer to abide by the saying: revenge is a dish best served cold.
