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.
Today’s Author is NIA FARRELL !!!
Nia Farrell has been writing for pleasure since junior high. Now that she writes about pleasure, she can share the fantasy worlds she visits and introduce readers to characters who remain with her long after their tales are told.
When crafting a story, Nia draws upon a rich diversity of life experiences, which include singer/songwriter, prize winning needle artist, private pilot, Reiki Master/Teacher, crystal healer, psychic fair reader, jewelry maker, physician’s assistant, factory worker, waitress, genealogist, period re-enactor, and children’s author. If this life isn’t enough, there are plenty of others to choose from. Otherwise, she devotes hours of research to subjects outside her realm, determined that her stories ring true.
Nia lives on a farm in Southern Illinois (far, far from Chicago, in the heart of “Little Egypt”). A seventh generation Illinoisan, she is descended from Mayflower Pilgrims, American soldiers from the Revolutionary War to World War II, and Scottish nobility. She enjoys playing in the past and visits Ren fairs and historical reenactments in period attire, sharing her love of history and her passion for music. While her husband and two grown daughters may only read her nonfiction work, she appreciates their support in pursuing her dreams, one of which is being published in erotic romance.
THE Q & A
Which one of your fictional characters would you NFke to do the nasty with?
NF — Nico White, my bisexual American Indian musician from SOMETHING ELSE. Nico’s a shaman, a man with spiritual gifts as well as incredible self-control, and he has extremely talented hands. He’d not only know what a root chakra is, he’d know how to spin it. Second choice would be porn star Cameron James Colson from SOMETHING MORE aka “The Titanic” Jamie Cameron.
What was your first Erotica book and what was the toughest thing about writing it?
RF — SOMETHING ELSE (The Three Graces Book One) was my first erotic romance and truthfully, the story came so easily, the most demanding aspect was researching ex-Navy SEAL J.T’s PTSD beyond what I already knew from family members and friends who struggle with it.
Who’s your most exciting character and who would play them in the movie?
RF — Anna James is my potty mouthed gamer girl and starving artist from SOMETHING DIFFERENT (The Three Graces Book Two). Other than being scared shitless of needles, Anna’s pretty fearless. She knows what she wants, and she wants the triple platinum Thomason twins. She’d have to go dark hair with purple and red streaks, but I could see Dakota Fanning playing 22-year-old Anna.
Fill in the blankS — Leather_____ gauntlets : Gold____ chalice : Silver____ bullet
In 20 Years You’ll be . . . . .
NF — In 20 Years I’ll be working on my next book/novella/song/screenplay and laugh when strangers ask if I’m retired.
Which Naughty Historical/Literary Person/Character would you most like to have dinner with?
NF — Benjamin Franklin. A randy man with a brilliant mind who advised young men to take older mistresses.
A Great Erotica Novel Must Have what Three Things?
NF — Engaging characters, writing that hooks you and won’t let go, and smoking hot sex that advances the story. If it’s a ménage with double penetration, even better.
Which are the most interesting characters in a book – Heroes/Heroines or Villains and why?
NF — Typically, villains are the most interesting, when written well, in shades of black and white so that they’re not purely evil. I prefer a villain who’s capable of giving pleasure and pain, even if he chooses not to.
Give a shout-out to your most valued Fan, Helper, or Mentor and why?
NF — My younger sister is my alpha reader/line editor/critiquer. She’s the one who loaned me some erotica (which I hadn’t read much since Anne Rice’s Beauty books), and that sparked my interest in writing it. She also served as inspiration for Rachel in my book SOMETHING MORE. Rachel has an autistic daughter. My sister has two autistic sons.
Who’s Your Favorite Porn Star and Why?
NF — I know this dates me but Dick Rambone. If you’ve seen him, you understand why. Size matters.
What Genre of Erotica are you most hesitant to write about and why?
NF — I don’t read or write horror or paranormal with demons and fallen angels. I’ve been involved in the metaphysical community for over 25 years and know two writers whose uncles were exorcists (including the Jesuit priest who performed the exorcism in St. Louis that inspired THE EXORCIST book and movie). When you’ve faced evil in real life, you know better than to invite it in.
What is your favorite ‘Banned’ book and why?
NF — My Current favorite is Restoration London: From Poverty To Pets, From Medicine To Magic, From Slang To Sex, From Wallpaper To Women’s Rights by Liza Picard, a treasure trove for authors and armchair historians.
What is the least favorite word you’ve seen in Erotica and why?
NF — Ooze (used with pre-cum). The mental imagery evoked is medical, not sexual.
Who was your first erotica novel dedicated to and why?
NF — My first three books actually were released without dedications. I’d have thanked my husband for his encouragement and support. He’s the one who first told me that I could write a book, and he’s been here every step of the way.
Have you ever incorporated humor into a sex scene and, if not, would you be willing to try it?
NF — Yes, I’ve injected levity into a sex scene. In SOMETHING ELSE (The Three Graces Book One), Grace grouses that J.T. is taking too long and gets a spank for her sass.
What couple gets your vote for having the sexiest love scene in a movie and why?
NF — Daniel Day Lewis and Madeline Stowe in LAST OF THE MOHICANS. The fort’s about to fall, and the tension between them has been building since they met. One night is all they might ever have, and there’s no holding back. It’s not explicit, just hot as hell. Hotter yet when you’re a period re-enactor who’s worn those buckled shoes. A close second is Harrison Ford and Kelly McGillis in WITNESS, forbidden passion between an “English” police detective and an Amish widow.
Where’s one place you’d never consider having sex at and why?
NF — The beach, without a blanket. Sand, in every nook and cranny.
What Tame Literary Classic would you love to turn into a Hot Piece of Erotica?
Thank you for the question. I actually copied my original answer into a new file, with plans to rewrite one of Miss Jane Austen’s books. If it’s ever optioned for a screenplay, it’ll make great period porn.
Grace Murphy is the local psychic medium who dreams of her soulmates – the two men she reincarnates with time and again. While reading at an Irish festival, she meets Nicolas White, a bisexual American Indian musician. A shaman with visions of his own, Nico recognizes Grace from his last sweat lodge as the red-haired woman in the south. Now that they’re found each other, surely the third one will come soon.
Six months later they meet J.T. Santiago, an ex-Navy SEAL and former cage fighter who owns a gym and teaches mixed martial arts. J.T. is a dominant, but he’s never had a male submissive and Grace and Nico are a package deal. It’s a learning curve for all of them, with J.T.’s initiation into MMF and MM relations and Grace’s introduction to BDSM. With Grace’s yin, J.T’s yang, and Nico’s center balance, the three of them come together as far as J.T.’s PTSD will allow, but forging a future means healing the past, however painful it might be.
Loving a biker and his adult film star brother came at a terrible price. Taken by a rival gang, beaten beyond recognition, and sexually assaulted, Rachel Givens saw a chance to survive by claiming the identity of the other girl who was taken and killed. She spent months recovering from her physical injuries but still struggles with PTSD. Add her three-year-old autistic daughter to the equation, and Rachel (now Rae Simmons) has her hands more than full as she makes a new life for them in a quiet little town.
When her former loves walk into the restaurant where she works, it’s clear that the Colson brothers have come for more than the plate lunch special. Once Rachel gladly submitted to their domination, but she hasn’t been with a man since her ordeal. She has triggers and issues and a daughter whose needs come first. Cord and Cam don’t care whether or not Hannah is theirs. As far as they’re concerned, Hannah is Rachel’s and Rachel is theirs – and they’ll do whatever it takes to convince Rachel that they belong together.
Singer/songwriter Anna James is getting desperate. Even with a day job, money’s tight, and she’s wound tighter yet, having sworn off sex to reconcile with her mother who’s in chemo and her father who disowned her for her wild, wicked ways. No sooner than her psychic best friend predicts an end to Anna’s self-imposed drought, rock stars Jackson and Jacob Thomason come to town, with the dream of an indie album co-written with local American Indian flutist Nico White and his songwriting partner AJ McPherson.
Jackson and Jacob are attracted to Anna, who gives as good as she gets. Learning that Anna’s alter ego AJ puts the “twist” in Nico’s “tribal” music only makes them want her more. The part-Comanche Thomason twins need an album’s worth of songs. That means spending night after night, working closely, getting to know each other, learning how to co-create.
Anna’s never written music with anyone but Nico. They’re comfortable with each other. The Thomason twins, who perform as No Mercy, make her anything but. What’s a fangirl to do, when submitting to her rock star idols means exploring the darker side of passion?
