Taylor Brooks is new to the publishing world. A person who loves to read and write, she finds herself drawn to the stories told of gay lovers, and finds the passion told in such stories absolutely beautiful. This also explains why her genre of choice for her writing is GLBT.
In addition to Take Me, Taylor has many stories brewing inside her head just itching to break free. Including a couple of stories she's started, but isn't quite sure where the characters are going to take things. At least not yet anyway. Stay tuned for more from Ms. Brooks as she strives for exciting ways to tease and please her readers.
Q: What is your writing day like?
A: I work full time, so I only write when time permits it. I also have a family to take care of and love them more than anything in the world, so they always take priority. Then, when the dust of real life settles I get as much writing done as I can, making a conscience effort to never put too much pressure on myself.
Q: Do you have a process of how you start to write your novels?
A: I do things probably a lot differently than other authors. I get an idea in my head about a couple and how they might meet or what might bring them together. Then I sit down and literally start writing the characters and scenes until my idea comes to life.
Q: Which aspects of writing do you enjoy the most and why? And what is your biggest writing pet peeve?
A: The thing I enjoy most about writing is making the characters emotions come to life. My biggest pet peeve in writing is in coming up with a synopsis. Sometimes it is hard to condense 350 pages into a hundred words or less and still have it jump out and grab at the reader.
Q: How do you handle your writing schedule and your personal life without going insane?
A: I tackle every day as though I’m going to accomplish all of my goals. Real life can become hectic and crazy for most people, add in an author trying to weave an erotic tale or two and you have even less hours in the day. Or so it would seem anyway. I just do the best that I can with every sunrise and hope that I am able to check at least a few things off of my to-do list.
Q: What is your biggest reader pet peeve?
A: My biggest pet peeve is predictability. I have read tons of books where you can tell by the second chapter exactly how everything is going to play out. It's disappointing. The story might be well told, but I want to enjoy the story and be surprised. It's hard to do that when you know exactly what's going to happen.
