Q: You write a lot about places all around the world. Have you been to all these places?
A. I have lived in the USA, France and Australia, and travel extensively. I only write about places I’ve been to.
Q: In Embedded, what inspired the Sydney location?
A. I lived in a house right on the water in Sydney for a year. It was a fabulous place. Great weather, waking to views of the harbor bridge each morning, the sounds of the boats as you go to bed at night. I think it has since been demolished.
Q: What’s your favorite scene in Embedded?
A. When she first meets Gabriel. It gives me goose bumps—and sometimes not just goose bumps—every time I think of it. The scene with both Miguel and Gabriel in Argentina, where Gabriel watches her seduce Miguel is a close second. I enjoy how people use their power in sexual encounters.
Q: Do you write in other genres?
A. I am a regular writer of professional articles under a different name.
Q: What led you to writing erotic fiction?
My non-fiction is about an area I am passionate about and want to help bring about change in. But it isn’t fun! Erotic fiction allows me to write from my imagination; I have a lot of fun imagining the various scenarios, to say nothing of doing the practical research...
Q: Practical research? You’re obviously single.
A. Actually no, but my partner is very accommodating. He enjoys the results, on paper and in real life. Quite a lot, actually.
Q: Are you writing anything now?
A. I am following up Embedded with another erotic fiction book, following Stephanie doing some more undercover work in France and Spain traveling with a film crew.
Q: Was it inspired by anything?
A. Yes, I walked the Camino de Santiago in the first half of 2011. It gave me plenty of thinking time! Writing is helping me relive an amazing experience.
Q: Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. Too hard to pick between Darcy and Rhett Butler, though a bit of Indiana Jones action or Han Solo humor have a lot to recommend them.
