Yeah, I'm a tease

I found these interview questions on Erotica for All. I don’t know when I’ll be featured on their site, so I thought I’d post a few of them just to get you excited. ;)

  • How did you start writing erotica?
    • I’ve been reading romance novels since I was in junior high.  My mom took them away from me, but that just made me want to read more.  After I got married, I got a subscription to Playgirl magazine and I spent more time reading the stories than looking at the pictures.  Really!  I wrote three short stories, sent them in and two of them were published, one as Fantasy of the Month.  I’ve been writing sex ever since.
  • What’s your favourite published work of yours and why?
    • My favorite published book is Tell Me You Want Me. It was my first novel and I fell in love with the bad boy hero (he’s a lot like my husband).
  • Who is your favourite character from one of your stories and why?
    • Jack Wheeler from Tell Me You Want Me and Secret Storm.  He’s a man with a dark past. On the surface, he’s charming and sociable, but underneath there’s a terrible secret haunting him.  He’s scarred physically and emotionally.  He intrigues me and he’s great in bed. ;)
  • How do you get yourself in the mood to write?
    • I daydream. 
  • If you get writer’s block when you’re writing, how do you get around it?
    • Two things: write stream of consciousness until I get the problem worked out, or take a shower.  I get great ideas in the shower.
  • If you could bring one of your characters to life, which one would it be and why?
    • Jack – I want to check out the scars on his body. 
  • What’s your favourite genre within erotica and why?
    • I like erotic romance. That’s what I write.  I write contemporary, but I read historical, especially Scottish historicals.  I love men in kilts!
  • What’s the biggest writing challenge you’ve ever taken on? Did you succeed?
    • Writing my first novel.  No, publishing and selling my first novel.  Writing was the easy part.  Selling it, especially when you’re self-published, is a HUGE challenge.
If you’re an erotica author, you can submit profile information to Erotica for All.

  1. OMG, I get *great* ideas in the shower too! Like FANTASTIC ideas. Glad I'm not the only one who has that "problem."

    And I'm with you on the selling self-published work. I haven't even put my book out there, and I'm already freaking out about how the hell I'm going to lure people into buying this stuff! Lots of hard work.

    Best of luck, my dear!

  2. You've got a good audience already so that will help. I did things backwards. I started marketing my books after I published them. Lesson learned.
