ARE YOU READY FOR SOME DIRTY SEXY FUN????
We’re gearing up for the Damn, That’s Hot Erotica 4 event on Facebook from January 11th to the 17th with this series of Provocative Interviews with every participating author. In these blog posts you’ll learn about the writers, their naughty offerings, and read their responses to offbeat questions that display their wit, outrageousness, and the sexy imagination that befits a person who deals with the steamier side of Literature.
Hello there, you’d think that writing the “about” info on myself would be the easy part of this exercise but wow. Not so much. I’ve only been writing stories for the last couple of years, I’ve been a huge fan of science fiction and romance novels for a long time and one day my over active imagination just wouldn’t seem to quit so I got on the computer, started typing and eventually ended up with my first book! It’s an odd career turn for me as I also currently work in an office in an accounting capacity, but I’ve also been a pastry chef as well so perhaps this is a little closer to getting back to the creative outlet that I’ve been missing. It’s great to be able to put little pieces of yourself into these heroines that you perhaps don’t get to show the world or even wish you were more like, its a liberating experience. At the same time, writing is such a personal thing that putting yourself out there to the world to be judged by publishers, reviewers, readers, basically everyone that reads your work is a really scary thing for a lot of people. It was a terrifying thing for me and I am grateful that I have some very supportive family and friends, thank you most of all to Marissa who has always been there right from the start no matter what I put in front of her to read!
I currently live in British Columbia, I’m a bit of a hobby-a-holic. At the moment I am obsessed with scarf knitting, to the point that I had to open my own Etsy store to unload my stock pile of scarfs….I mean how many scarfs can a girl really justify keeping for herself? I also am a painter, mostly abstract in acrylics. With the pastry arts background I spend a decent amount of time still creating recipes and baking, much to the delight of my co-workers who I use as lab taste testers, I love making home made chocolates as well. In the spring and summer I love to plant things and tinker in the garden, and spending time with friends and family.
THE Q & A
Which one of your fictional characters would you like to do the nasty with?
SM — I think I would pick either Arkenon from Surrender or Roan from Eve’s Rescue….or maybe both if I were allowed a two-fer?
What was your first Erotica book and what was the Toughest thing about writing it?
SM — My first book was erotica actually, so the toughest thing was learning how to build its world without having the story get lost and boring in the explanations and cultural information. It’s still something I’m paranoid about.
Who’s your most exciting character and who would play them in the movie?
SM — I’d LOVE to see Roan from Eve’s Rescue played by Luke Evans, yum yum.
A Great Erotica Novel Must Have what Three Things?
SM — Great foreplay. Great sex. Great connection between characters.
Which are the most interesting characters in a book – Heroes/Heroines or Villains and why?
SM — I admit, I have a Villain fetish, it’s true. I get so curious about their motivations and their backstory. I love reading a book where the ‘villain’ ends up flipping sides in the end!
Give a shout-out to your most valued Fan, Helper, or Mentor and why?
SM — We have a lot of really great fan/helpers in our street team group, they’ve been so much fun! But I would like to say a big thank-you to Avril, you’re always sharing and helping to promote and it really means so much!
What Genre of Erotica are you most hesitant to write about and why?
SM — I would love to delve deeper into the BDSM genre, I have such a personal fascination with it, but no experience so that is why I’m hesitant. Research is in my future 😉
Who was your first erotica novel dedicated to and why?
SM — My first erotica novel was dedicated to one of my best friends and beta readers — Marissa. Truly without her encouragement my first book probably never would have made it to a publisher!
Have you ever incorporated humor into a sex scene and, if not, would you be willing to try it?
SM — My books have quite a bit of humor in them, and in my personal experience, if you can’t laugh during sex then you aren’t with the right person! So I’m all for a healthy dose of humor in a sex scene 😉
What couple gets your vote for having the sexiest love scene in a movie and why?
SM — I know there was a lot of mixed feelings on the Fifty Shades of Grey movie/books. I didn’t read the books myself, but I have to say, the movie…I found it pretty hot. I can see if you’re not into BDSM and you don’t understand what it is that it could be misunderstood. But for me? I loved it.
Where is one place you would never consider having sex at and why?
SM — An airplane bathroom, because EWW. I guess I’m more of a germaphobe than I thought, when I fly I literally drink as little as possible during the flight so if I’m lucky I don’t have to use the ‘latrine of despair’ and I can hold it until we’re back in the airport.
On an average day you would most likely be wearing cotton panties, a thong, or going commando?
SM — I love the cheeky undies from Victoria’s Secret, so I guess they’re halfway in between thong and regular?
What medieval torture method would you love to use on a confirmed Facebook Troll?
SM — Let’s stay traditional and choose the Rack….that way you’d have some time to enjoy it.
COALITION MATES #1 — Sarah Lowen is leaving her past for a fresh start, but when fate has other ideas she finds herself with six rescuers that need her just as much as she needs them. When Sarah wakes up from her accident to see that she’s been rescued by beautiful alien men she thinks she must be dreaming; but her imagination couldn’t have prepared her for the reality of what they need from her. Daegan was relieved that they had found a suitable female to bond with, fearing he had condemned his bond-mates and crew to certain death by trusting the wrong woman. Tristan, Vaughn, Rykken, and Callen seem to be more than content with sweet little Sarah, but Zane seems determined to keep his distance. Will Zane’s unwillingness to love Sarah cost them all their future?
COALITION MATES # 2 — Talia Booth finds herself kidnapped from her home planet of Earth while hiking and wakes up in an auctioning facility on a strange planet surrounded by aliens. Luckily she catches the eye of a couple of beautiful men who are familiar with her species and they decide to rescue her from a dreadful fate. Asher Rhodan and Grae Derhsavve have been looking for a third to complete their relationship and start a family and when they see Talia, they both know she’s the one. All they have to do now is convince her that a relationship with both of them is possible. The Prince and the dragon may not be the type of males that Talia is used to, but before long she finds their attention and steamy teasing impossible to resist. Asher’s complicated family situation threatens to destroy the new happiness the trio has found. Can Talia let go of her inhibitions and let herself love the men that destiny has brought her to?
COALITION MATES # 3 — Evangeline Scott was hoping for a fun night on the town after a hellish day. What she couldn’t have imagined was getting kidnapped by alien slavers and then left to die on an abandoned ship. Kai Dallen and Roan Quinn were having some bad luck of their own when they found themselves set up by an old adversary and trapped in the vault of a Dhuaation Pharaoh’s ship with no way out. When Khaman-Ra makes them an offer they can’t refuse, the two space pirates end up rescuing a ship full of human female cargo. All three males are immediately drawn to one of the beauties and make an agreement to satisfy everyone’s desires. The only problem is, they didn’t think to ask Eve and when she wakes up to find that she’s now married to three aliens she’s mad as hell. By the time all four of them realise their true feelings, will it be too late, as a woman from Roan’s past threatens to ruin it all?
COALITION MATES # 4 — Sally Owens was content to spend her life hiding in plain sight, that is…as long as no one got too close or tried to wrestle the reigns away from her. When she goes out for a night on the town, getting kidnapped and shipped out into space was NOT what she had in mind. But above all else Sally is a survivor and she soon comes up with a plan to thrive in this new world. Arkenon Quinn is informed that one of the human refugees wants to join the Courtesan Guild and of course he is curious. However, when he meets the audacious and beautiful Sally he finds himself signing up to mentor her against his better judgement. What he couldn’t have anticipated is how quickly this fascinating creature would steal his heart, forcing him to do something he’s never had to do before – chase a female. Will Sally’s painful past keep her from finding a future with the man who’s like no other she’s ever met? Or will she have the strength to place her body and soul in Arkenon’s extremely capable hands?
