Frequently Asked Questions
   
Q.
Why did you decide to write erotica? Where do you get your ideas?

A.

I've always loved the romance genre and seeing as I possess a vividly wicked imagination writing erotica comes very naturally to me. The first erotic book I'd read was Exit to Eden by Anne Rice, one delighted read through and I was hooked.

Inspiration is around every corner in the most unexpected and unusual places. You just have to make sure and get it down on paper before the idea flutters away from you. I have ideas pop into my head at all times of the day or night, whether waiting in traffic, making dinner, or snuggled up to my husband at night.

Q.
Do you prefer to write stories in the contemporary, BDSM or fantasy sub-genre?

A.

Actually, I enjoy writing in all three genres. They stimulate different areas of my imagination and I find each one challenging in its own way. I like to mix things up and prefer to alternate the type of book I'm working on when I can. My readers mean a great deal to me. They are my audience and without them, I'd have no one to tell my stories. I want to offer a variety of different tales, a well-rounded erotic bookshelf if you please.

Q.
Do you find it hard to write intimate scenes? What scene are difficult for you to write?

A.

No, actually sex scenes are fairly easy for me to write. There is so much emotion and passion involved that unlike dialogue or character interaction you don't have to be guarded about what should or could happen. I don't plot the scene before hand I just listen to the characters and let their emotions move me where they want to go.

Q.
Which one of your book is your favorite? Which one do you think is your best?

A.

It's usually the one I'm working on at the time. I enjoyed writing A Wolf's Tale, where I had the chance to try my hand at fantasy for the first time. April Love was a real labor of love. There are glints of youthful memories buried in its pages and I fell in love with the hero too! (Please, don't tell my husband.) I got such a kick out of writing The Commander's Club; which is an intriguing BDSM packed with sizzling sex, a feisty heroine, and a hunky hero in disguise. Overall, I'd have to say it's my favorite and currently my best piece of work.

Q.
You have had several #1 Best sellers. What is your secret to success and do you have any advice for aspiring writers?

A.

I'm ecstatic and especially humbled that my books have been this well received. I had my share of rejection slips before WCP published The Gift. I used them as tools to hone my skills and shape my erotic style. Looking back, I realize how much I've gained from the experience of that process. Would I have the same deep sense of gratitude if my success had been immediate and unhindered? Honestly, I can say yes and without hesitation, it's just the way I'm built, but perhaps the books would've failed. More to the point, you form a closer bond with your book when you re-work and refine it. In essence, as you get closer to the book either unwittingly or sub-consciously you pour more of yourself into its pages thus the book becomes purer, fiction from the heart.

The best advice I can give aspiring erotic writers is to let their hair down, unlock the cage you have that "evil twin" in, kiss your inhibitions good-bye and test drive those fantasies; get in there and write.
