How long does it usually take you to write a book, from the original idea to finishing writing it?
It varies depending on my work schedule. I am branching into longer fiction…so I’ll let you know when I get to the novel stage.
What can we expect from you in the future? ie More books of the same genre? Books of a different genre?
I love urban fantasy on the whole. BDSM, witches, vampires, different pairings of couples…yes. You’ll be seeing much more of me. I have several short works of erotic fiction coming out this year.
What genre would you place your books into?
Several actually. Erotica, erotic horror, urban fantasy, lesfic, BDSM, paranormal
What made you decide to write that genre of book?
I love the undercurrent of magic and menace you find in urban fantasy. The emotion you find in characters connecting with each other, whether it’s a f/f pairing or a m/f pairing really speaks to me as well.
Do you have a favorite character from your books? And why are they your favorite?
I love all my characters. They really have to come to life in my head before I can write about them.
How long have you been writing?, and who or what inspired you to write?
I have been writing since grade school, but honestly it wasn’t until 50 Shades that I really began to crunch down and focus.
Do you have a certain routine you have for writing? ie You listen to music, sit in a certain chair?
I sit at my desk. Sometimes music, sometimes quiet. Must have Dove chocolate nearby. And a lot of water. My dogs are all around my feet and I have my sticky notes and foam-core board ready to go.
Do you read all the reviews of your book/books?
Yes. I learn from the constructive criticism and relish those amazing 5 stars when they shine down. Sometimes they are hard-like for the short ones that are meant to be that and people want longer.
Do you choose a title first, or write the book then choose the title?
How do you come up with characters names and place names in your books?
I dream about them usually. Something will inspire me and I’ll start thinking about who they are until the defining points come into focus.
Are character names and place names decided after their creation? Or do you pick a character/place name and then invent them?
A little bit of both. Places I have been or have researched usually blend together in my mind for the story.
Do you decide on character traits (ie shy, quiet, tomboy girl) before writing the whole book or as you go along?
As I go along. The characters come to life and have to breathe for me.
So, now tell us about your new book!

filled with endless possibilities as long as it was with the girl of her

heart was racing.

dress shirt was halfway open, straining against her breasts. Every movement

enormous fireplace. Green fire burned within. Persephone fell into the chair,
her dress spilling around her. She watched the green fire dance, marveling at
the images unfolding. Her mind was still muzzy but she saw…no….
