Q: What made you decide on erotic romance as you writing genre?
When I turned the big 40, I bought myself a Kindle for my birthday because I love to read. I stumbled onto this story by Jenny Penn and downloaded it because, you aren't going to believe this, I loved the cover. OH MY GOD, my eyes about popped out of my head. Two hunky guys kissing one woman. I was mesmerized and okay aroused as all hell. I read that book in an hour then I re-read again right after. There was something there that I fell in love with. I sat down at my computer that night and started to write my story. It took me 5 days to finish and I think my family thought I was going nuts. I used the same publishing company she did and before I could talk myself out of it I sent the manuscript. When I received word that it was accepted I started to cry. I did it.
Q: Why Were-Bears?
Being in the Veterinarian field I have a huge love of all animals. Bears especially appeal to me because they are similar to humans in many ways. They are survivors, on top of the food chain, dedicated to their children and if you piss them off, watch out!
Q: Where do you get your ideas?
Life. I watch a movie and think to myself that this character would be a great in a book. I overhear a conversation and boom a whole scene flashes through me. I dream, I fantasize and I believe. Life is full of interesting ideas.
Q: What inspirational advice would you give to future writers?
Don’t be afraid. Sit down finish what you began and see it through. Even if you are rejected a couple of times, keep writing. This is who you are.

I am reading three books concurrently. The new Dan Brown - The Lost Symbol, the new Laurell K Hamilton - Skin Trade and Leah Brooke’s Dakota Ranch Crude. I switch books based on my mood.
Q: How hard was it to write a love scene with five men?
Oh my. If I say easy, will you kill me? Once I started, it all flowed so effortlessly. A couple of the scenes I had to step back and take a couple of deep breath before returning to write because of the scorching heat.
Q: Where do you write?
Believe it or not, I write a lot at Starbucks. A cup of a hot latte, one of their deep cushion chairs and the many characters that walk by me. I plug in my earphones and just write. Sometimes it amazes me that when I am in the middle of a particular passionate scene and look up people are unaware of what is being written from my blushes. I love it. So sexy and sinful in public.
Q: Okay. Would you actually live in a ménage relationship?
Oh yes. Having 2, 3, 4, 5 men dedicated to my happiness and sexual wellbeing. Sign me up. Ooh la la.
