Interview with Angela Zorelia

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have always had a passion for writing. Ever since I was little I would write stories in a journal. As I got older, I took many creative writing classes and just couldn't get enough. Eventually, I went to college and got a degree in biology before attending medical school. I realized there that my calling in life was writing. I can't live without it. So I dropped out and here I am...and what better subject to write about than erotic fiction and the passionate lust burning inside each and every one of us?
Where do you write?
Everywhere! In the park, at coffee houses, on my bed, in the bathtub...but rarely ever at a desk. I always take a notepad with me anywhere I go to jot thoughts down.
What are you working on next?
I am always writing and usually have a million projects being developed at once. Check out my website for exciting previews of what's coming!
How do you choose what to write about?
I love exploring every corner of the erotica world. I try to keep all of my stories as fresh and different as possible. With that in mind, the main factor that determines what I write about is variety. I also take a lot of suggestions from fans and what they would like to see. If you have something you would love to read, feel free to contact me via my website.
What are some of your inspirations?
I like to draw a lot from my own personal life and experiences. I also get a lot of inspiration from just talking to and observing people. Lastly, my fans inspire me to write new and exciting stories. I love putting out content that they enjoy!
What is your personal favorite erotica from your collection?
This is a hard one. They are all good in their own ways and people can relate to different ones based on unique experiences. If I had to pick one though, I would say that The Bartender's Special is my current favorite. I think the character development and interactions in that story are very realistic and come to life in a personable way.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
They are usually recommended to me by my fans, or I happened to stumble upon something that catches my eye.
What is your writing process?
Paper everywhere. I have paper covered with writing all over my place and I always carry a writing pad with me. When I'm ready to write a story, I gather up all the paper I can find and start sculpting a story from all of the ideas I have jotted down.
What do you read for pleasure?
Erotica....what else?
Describe your desk
Desk? What desk? I write anywhere but a desk.
