I was born in...well, a while back. I and spent most of my early years growing up on my Grandad's farm in Donegal, Ireland. The farm was in the middle of nowhere, the closest town over 10 miles away down a country track. We didn't have running water, so every morning old Willie Lyons would get on his bike with a bucket on each handlebar as he rode up the hill to fill them from the spring. Not a tap, a real genuine mountain spring. Over the years I spent every summer there, exploring the surrounding countryside. Even back then I used to imagine faeries and monsters, with the trolls always living under the bridge on the way up to the spring. Willie was getting old now, so I fetched the water.

Having a guy who is 40 lbs heavier and 4 inches taller come at you really puts things in perspective for me. Additionally kick boxing is good exercise. Writing a short story is almost like meditation for me, given that characters and situations come into being and function, created by the movement of "pen on paper" or should I say, fingers on keyboard. Similarly in meditation, I watch my mind create images and thoughts on the background of the mind. My current stories, The Six Sisters, came about through such a process.

The metaphorical theme of death and rebirth that figures prominently in his novels is probably influenced in some way by the time that his mother heard, through the screened window, a small voice crying for help. Rushing from the house and through the yard, she discovered her all-too-curious six-year-old son at the bottom of a freshly dug grave. In that moment, he discovered that trouble is much easier to get into than it is to get out of. Sometimes we need help getting out of the hole that we jump into willingly.

Azurée Lovely writes erotic science fiction and fantasy, as well as contemporary erotic romance. While working on her degree in English from Humboldt State University and attending classes in creative writing, her attention was brought to the fact that sex--in one form or another--had made an appearance in every story she had presented. Initially, this was a surprise for her, but after some consideration it made sense: sex is intimate and messy. It can make us feel vulnerable, emotional, or even empowered. The experience of it can change us in profound ways. When it comes to erotic fiction, there is no end to conflict and drama. As evidence of this, Azurée has more stories currently brewing in her head than s ... read more
