I want to thank Daryl for being here with me today. I love having someone on the blog from my province!
Before we get started talking about your writing, tell us a little about yourself, where you’re from, what you do for a living (if you’re not a full time writer) what hobbies you have, etc. Whatever you’d like to share.
Thanks for letting me visit. I live in Ontario Canada with my husband and pets. I write. I left the real world and now I write. When I’m not at my laptop, I love to garden. I have a good size vegetable garden where I fight it out with the local wildlife population. Did you know chipmunks love corn on the cob! So do bears – but we won’t go there! I grew up in the city, but have lived out here in the country for 25 yrs and I love it- except there’s no pizza delivery!
1. How did you get started writing?
When someone handed me a pencil.
2. What genre(s) do you write in and why?
Erotic romance – contemporary, historical and currently working on a fantasy. Why? I have no idea why? Writing erotic was not where I ever planned to go. It’s just where I ended up.
3. Where do you get the ideas for your stories?
The hot tub. Something somebody said. A line pops into my head. I’m quiet, your basic wall flower. But what I’m doing is watching people. How do they interact? How do they stand, hold a drink, laugh. And from what I see or hear an ideas bubbles around in the back of my head until it is ready and then it pops forward and says – well screams actually, “Tada!!”
4. What is it that makes your writing different from all the others in your genre?
My voice. That is the only thing I can claim. I’ve read several books and hundreds of chapters by other romance and erotic romance authors and I am humbled and envious of what they have written.
5. Are you an avid reader? When you do read someone else’s writing, what is your favorite genre?
Let’s say I used to be an avid reader – now I’m an avid critiquer and beta. But when I do have to get away from it all and read “something else” – it’s a murder mystery. I love to cuddle up next to my wood stove with a big hot chocolate and an Agatha Christie. I own all of her books. They are like dear friends.
6. Tell us about your next book & when is it being published?
Capri’s Fate is my erotic fantasy that is currently being written. It is about a junior vice president who falls in love with a hot male voice. When is it going to be published – first I have to finish it. Then I’ll worry about the next part.
Had a great time.
Here’s a tiny tease –
“Do you trust me?” Kat gazed at me with her dark chocolate eyes mellowed-from-too-much-wine and a goofy grin on her face.
I’ve seen that innocent demeanor before; it meant nothing but trouble. I was a bit wary—okay—a lot wary. Last time she’d gawked at me like that and asked the same brainless question, we ended up at a frat house beer slosh during Homecoming and I wasn’t in college anymore.
A cab pulled up and stopped. She slid in first. “Convention Center.”
“What’s at the convention center?” I sat next to her and shut the car door.
“That’s the trust me bit.”
You have to love air-quotes.
I checked my Blackberry for messages then glanced at her. “Is this going to get me arrested? Again.”
She shook her head.
“Is it going to get me hit on – again – by horny, beer-soaked, college drunks?”
“Is that a yes or a no?”
“Go save your Grandmother.” After learning her grandmother booked a cruise with a supposed gigolo and is squandering her inheritance, Esmeralda (Red) Hood boards Emerald Forest cruise ship to protect both.
Once there, Red slips and falls into the arms of Wilhelm Olf, a dark-eyed, continental who makes her body tingle. Stepping out of the elevator, she barges into Andrew Woodsman, a bumbling private school teacher on his first vacation cruise.
With her attention torn between the dissimilar but sexually-intriguing men and keeping watch over tequila drinking, rock wall climbing grandma, Red’s cruise is filled with fun and erotic fantasies.
Grandmother’s warning of Never trust a wolf in sheep’s clothing leaves Red confused. Later, when she wakes up in a utility closet, hands and feet bound and emerald necklace missing, Red discovers the man she suspected is not only innocent but also the one she loves.
