~~~~~~~~~ ❤ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ❤ ~~~~~~~~~~ ❤
When did you know you wanted to write erotica?
Well, I never wanted to write Erotica per se. Not this girl, oh no, shock horror, sex scenes… *smirks* Trust me, if you’d read those first few scenes I ever wrote…. Can we say awkward?. However, I’m a pantser, and thus completely character driven and, wouldn’t you know it, my darn characters just cannot keep their hands off each other.
I write dirty talking, possessive, dominant Alpha heroes, and yeah, you just don’t argue with them. Trust me, I tried, and I just end up giving myself a headache!
So, I had to swallow my initial embarrassment and just get on with it, and just like in real life practice makes perfect, ya know…
Have you always been a sexual person, or grew that way later in life?
I’ve always had a healthy fascination with sex, but I’ve only truly embraced that side since I hit forty and hubby and I discovered kink. Let’s just say we have fun 😉
Who’s your Favorite character from your novels, why, and from what book?
I fall hopelessly in love with each and every one of my heroes when I write them, but if I had to pick just one, it would have to be Sven from The Housewife and the Film Star. Not only is Sven based on my all-time crush Alexander Skarsgard, he was also the first hero who truly took over my brain, and demanded that I write the story his way. That story contains the first anal sex I ever wrote, and let me tell you, that took me days.
I didn’t want to write it. He demanded I did. I refused. He kept pushing. (LOL) Naturally he won in the end. That story in its original form was my first erotic novel, and the version you can buy in the shops now is the third rewrite. I truly cut my teeth on that story, and as for anal…. It’s a rare book of mine that doesn’t have that in nowadays, and I don’t bat an eyelid at writing it anymore.
In fact, I LOVE writing sex scenes, period, nowadays. While my books are always love stories, scorching hot sex is guaranteed
Do you think writing erotica makes you a target on Facebook from unsavory people?
Oh, without doubt, it does. It comes with the territory. I’ve learned to trust in my instincts when I accept friend requests. The odd time I’ve ignored that niggle, is when some wack job sends me inappropriate stuff. The block button and I are firm friends on FB.
I have a thick skin and it doesn’t bother me. Hubby occasionally gets annoyed, and it’s just as well most of them live across the pond, or they might just find an irate Dom on their door step. 😉
You see, my hubby is also my Dom, and no one messes with what’s his. 😀
Do you have an OMG moment from one of your novels?
I have those all the time. Usually when I read back the sex scenes, blush, scratch my head and wonder what on earth I was on when I wrote them. The answer to that of course is that I was so in my characters’ head, that I didn’t even notice what I was writing, until I read it back and go…. Right then, lol.
Or as hubby, who reads all my stuff frequently says, “Damn girl, we’re so doing this.” *smirks*
Any erotic genres you don’t plan writing in and why?
I don’t like humiliation, and while I enjoy reading the odd dark erotic romance, I can’t see myself writing it, but I said that about lots of things, MM, for instance, and now love writing it, so who knows.
What’s your short term and long term goals as a writer?
Short term – to keep on writing. Long term – to make a proper living out of it. I’m at the stage where my royalties make a sizable contribution to the family income, but we certainly couldn’t live off it yet.
What’s Your Newest Release and do you have any WIP’s?
The Alpha’s Assassin (M/M) (part of the Bad Alpha-Man Love Anthology) releases August 21st.
A Mutt in Disguise (M/F) (Free Read) is scheduled for release in August
Claimed by her Bears (M/F/M, F/F) is scheduled for release in August
Sunshine and Love (M/M) is scheduled for release in September
And my current WIP is Auctioned to the Daddy Dom (M/F) (Book 4 in my Club Spectrum series)
Did I mention I have an overactive muse? 😉
You open a book and a Genie appears. He offers to make one of your novels a National Bestseller but a Celebrity or Politician has to die. What would you do / say?
No thanks! I wouldn’t want someone’s death on my conscience, and I’ll get on that Bestseller list in my own time. I’ve been known to hit a few already
Thanks for an Entertaining Interview, Doris !!!
Now Let’s Take a Peek at Few of Her Novels ~~~~~~

SYNOPSIS — A drunken dare sees Laura Anderson sign up for the Club Spectrum Auctions. A night of kinky sex with a real Dom is just what she needs. It was never meant to be with Slade Douglas, the only man she’s ever loved. The man who left her standing at her parent’s grave, and fled the country without an explanation. Fifteen years her senior, Slade had thought her too fragile and innocent for the lifestyle then, and he made a promise to her brother to leave her alone. This time he cannot walk away, especially as Laura is not the innocent girl he remembers. She has grown into a beautiful woman, willing and able to gift him with her submission, and their chemistry cannot be denied. As he explores her boundaries and pushes her further than she has ever been taken before, Laura flies, but their painful past may prove one obstacle too many. There’s only one thing Slade can do…

SYNOPSIS — A son and a mate in one fell swoop—he’ll never live this down.
Panther shifter Sasha Draven might be a Protector, but that doesn’t mean he’s in a hurry to get his ass kicked protecting clueless humans. This bad boy doesn’t do commitment, but when he comes face to face with his past in the form of his son, every protective instinct he never knew he had kicks in. He will protect what’s his at all costs.
Macey Laine thought she’d escaped the inner city violence threatening her nephew when she left Glasgow behind. The last thing she expects is to come face to face with her sister’s past in her own home. There’s no denying this bad boy biker is Kenny’s father. If only she could deny the instant connection she feels to this stranger, as easily.
Nothing good will come of this, especially when the threat to Kenny tracks them down…
