Average Rating:

 I was born in the Land of 10,000 Lakes of Lakota Sioux and German heritage and am the 40ish mother of two teenagers, a son and daughter. I’ve been married to the same wonderfully supportive man for close to 20 years. When I am not herding the kids from one activity to another, I watch Discovery ID channel obsessively and write.

Q: Where do you get inspiration for books?

A: I watch a lot of TV. I love all the true crime investigation shows on Discovery ID. It's true real life is more strange than any fiction. It usually only takes one little nugget from some show to kick start my brain into new book plot. Since I am truly a teenage girl at heart my characters are usually visualized in my mind as my favorite hunks.

Q: What is your writing process?

A: I have no structured approach to my writing. I write on the fly. Mostly during down time in my regular 9 to 5 job or while one of my children are at a practice. I always have a pen and note book handy to jot idea strings down.

Q: What does writing fiction do for you?

A: My writing is one of my escapes from the hassles of everyday life—letting my mind create fictional characters I care about and want to know more about their lives. Writing is the best therapy I’ve ever found. Why tell one person your issues when you can tell hundreds your issues in a good story with strong characters and plot?

Q: Why write gay erotic fiction?

A: Started reading Historical Romance novels Johanna Lindsey and Julie Garwood in the sixth grade. I moved on to Nora Robert’s contemporary romances. I stumbled onto gay erotic fiction on the internet when Showtime’s Queer As Folk was on. I found quickly that I was more interested in stories involving two men than the usual male/female romances. The relationships to me seem more rough and real than all the hearts and flowers of regular female and male romances.

Q: What other type of writing or genres are you interested in writing?

A: I love history. I believe every generation is a product of actions and deeds of the generation before them. Learning from the past is the only way to move forward. I would love to write a period story about the Roaring twenties or set during WWII with a twist.
