This is such a tough question because I write in more than one genre. My books are full of romance, suspense, and intrigue. Heavily character and story drive with elements of erotica that enhance the main plot. I enjoy the layering, which I think give the reader a more immersive experience. It’s wonderful when I have people asking me for their own application to Juliet!
2. When writing a book, what is your favorite part of the creative process(outline, plot, character names, editing, etc)?
I enjoy all of the creative process really, I guess if I had to pick one it would be the initial writing of the story.
3. When reading a book, what genre do you find most interesting/intriguing?
I try and find multi-genre books or even genreless. Once I find an author I like, I’ll read their whole backlist. I tend to get bored with single tropes.
4. If you could co-author with any author, past or present, who would you choose?
That’s an easy one! Molly Weatherfield, writer of “Carrie’ Story” and “Safe Word.” Her work is a great example of having a storyline with erotic layers. I know a lot of people would classify it differently, but I have always experienced her work from a character driven perspective. The erotic touches are very much secondary to the journey of Carrie’s character. They are both beautiful pieces of erotic literature.
The difficult thing about writing erotic literature in 2017 is I think on the whole a lot of readers have become anesthetized to elements in bdsm. What some view as light may be trigger-loaded for another, so it’s difficult to find the balance between the two. My goal is to craft a good story with strong characters and challenging plot lines with erotic elements, but those scenes never control the book—the emotions do. I still believe the mind is the biggest and most vast source for arousal, when you just dissolve into the page, becoming part of the world. And Molly Weatherfield illustrated that better than most with her classic, transparent, and immersive writing.
5. Have you always wanted to write or did it come to you "later in life"?
I’ve been writing my whole life. In my childhood, I cut my teeth on poetry and progressed to short stories. I’ve always been in my head, crafting and mapping stories—it is my sanctuary and I wouldn’t know how to exist without it!
Thank you for your questions!
