How did you start writing erotica?
I enjoy reading erotica – not always, but a good bit. I've writing erotic romance and erotica is just
an extension of erotic romance, really.
What’s your favorite published work of yours and why?
Truly, I love one that will out on October 30th. It's called An Evening at the Starlight and has a
very noir feel. But I also love Lord Decadent's Obsession, Free Me, In His Arms... I love them
all, they're my children, after all.
Where’s your favorite place to write?
I write on one end of the sofa with a laptop. I have plot cards and notes everywhere.
Who is your favorite character from one of your stories and why?
I love Phillip Allard from Chocolate, Tea and the Duchess. He's a very conflicted man, in need
of answer his natural inclination toward me, yet the times (early 1800's) dictate a marriage and
the continuation of the family line.
The thing I love about Phillip the most is that he doesn't wish to compromise, but instead, he
feels the need to stay true to himself. He does have a love for Felicity, though and in that, lies the
Do your nearest and dearest know what you do, and if so, what was their reaction when
they found out?
My entire family knows what I write, though very few of them read my stuff. My family is
grown and they are happy I'm writing, something they all know I've wanted to do FOREVER.
They're proud. I'm not quite sure what my elderly aunts and uncles would think if they knew
WHAT I wrote.
What was your ideal career when you were a child?
HA! I wanted to be a stewardess more than I wanted to breathe. I had wanderlust even then. In
lieu of that, I wanted to be a nurse. Then I discovered I'd have to give people shots, and that was
the end of that dream. I married young and haven't regretted a moment of it. Lots of "careers" in
the intervening years.
How do you get yourself in the mood to write?
I just do it. It isn't a matter of gearing up to it. If I'm involved in a story, I live it until it's finished.
I want to write it and I see it from start to finish – then I have to account for the characters having
their way with me, and voila, the story is born.
What’s the best writing tip you’ve ever been given?
Recently, I was edited by the editors at Riptide and the advice and lessons I learned from them
will sustain me for years to come. That said, the best bit of advice was "Put your behind in the
chair and write."
If you could bring one of your characters to life, which one would it be and why?
I'd love to meet Prentice Hyde from Lord Decadent's Obsession. I wrote him with Tyrone Power
in mind, and well, 'nuf said.
I'd also love to hear Laurent Kinsdale from Love Immortal. Something really sexy about an
Which author, erotic or otherwise would you love to meet and why?
I would very much like to meet Aleksandr Voinov. He is my favorite author and a friend and
admire the hell out of him. I'd love to spend some time picking his brilliant brain and maybe
some of that genius would rub off.
What are you working on at the moment?
At the moment I'm working on a m/m historical that I will submit to Riptide for their Rent Boy
submission call. I'm also about to start on the fourth in my Romeo Club eries.
What’s the biggest writing challenge you’ve ever taken on? Did you succeed?
My first book, one that hasn't been published. It's 120,000 and is probably terribly style-wise. I
haven't looked at it in ages and don't have time for it anytime soon. I say this is my biggest
challenge because just starting to write that first book is fraught with challenges, not the least of
which is author self-doubt.
What’s your biggest writing achievement? Why?
I think I'd have to say Serenity's Dream, because it was the first book I had published. Then,
every one after that. Each acceptance feels really good.
Can you tell us about your latest release?
On October 10, I have an m/m erotic called A Minute After Minute coming out as part of the
Noble Romance Timeless Desire Blog Tour in November. Two men are separated by
circumstance, only to realize that what they have is timeless desire.
On October 30, I have Romeo Club #1: Surprises, a m/m erotica short about a fantasy club, sort
of a modern day Sapphire Club. The Romeo Club series are a series of vignettes, each involving
a client at the club and their particular fantasy.
Surprises involves Donnie, who enters the club, which is also a dating service. What he learns
about himself at the club is more than he ever bargained for.
There isn't any romance involved in this stories, which is different for me in that regard. They are
quick, five-thousand word stories, each seeing the character through their deepest sexual desire.
On October 31, An Evening at the Starlight, another part of the Noble blog tour. This is a
poignant story of a love that never dies.
Thank you for stopping by. Where can your readers find you?
