Interview with Callie Backman

What's the story behind your latest book?
It's about a woman in her mid-twenties who is missing something in her life. She wants to find love and be in a meaningful relationship - she just never expected to fall for her female boss! After being thrown into the deep end of a lifestyle she knows nothing about, she begins to wonder if this is the kind of relationship she really wants and if this is what love is all about, or if this is really just lust and a gap-filler for the loneliness she has been feeling for so long. It has plenty of juicy, erotic sex scenes, is comical at times and has some romance thrown into the mix. It also has a twist at the end which I hope will surprise my readers!
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
By chance! I search randomly and wait for an ebook to jump out at me, begging me to read it. I have found some fantastic indie authors this way and read some great stories.
What is your writing process?
I don't have an actual process. I just try to find the time to sit and write with no interruptions; sometimes this is easier said than done when you have a family with children and a full time job. If I know I don't have writing time on my side, I try to jot down notes as ideas come into my head so that I don't forget them. And when I do have writing time, I make sure everybody in my family knows that it's MY time and nobody is allowed to disturb me!
When did you first start writing?
I used to write songs for my friends when I was about nine or ten years old, then sing them to my friends at school on the playground. I got good reviews for my creative song lyrics, not so much for my singing voice! As I got older I would write short stories (mostly horror stories) and distribute them to my friends at school. I never thought they were any good, I just loved the whole process of creating a story straight from my own thoughts.
What are you working on next?
I am toying with the idea of writing a thriller. I am a huge scary movie buff and I would love to write about things that go bump in the night. It's a slow process, but these things take time. I have also considered writing 'Hot Wax II' but I think I will leave this up to my readers to decide if there should be a sequel.
