The first story I ever wrote was in grade two. It featured bunny rabbits, best friends and a happy ending.
At the time I was too busy coloring in the sides of the paper and illustrating the characters to fully understand the need for a plot and tension. The whole story was happy!
What do you read for pleasure?
My friends joke I am addicted to reading.
My favorite books are contemporary romance novels, the hotter the better. There is nothing better than relaxing on the couch and sipping a glass of wine while I delve deep into a new novel. Preferably one with a sexy hero with a six pack.
I just finished reading The Deal by Elle Kennedy. Can't get enough of hot hockey players with hearts of gold! But when I'm in a rush I love a good short story. Belinda La Page's school series reminds me of my time in school - only hotter. Another guilty pleasure.
Where did you grow up and how did this influence your writing?
Growing up in a small town, I attended the local religious school. Dressed in ankle length pleated skirts, we had school dances with the boys' schools twice a year.
Like anything forbidden I dreamed of wearing short skirts and making out with cute boys. My religious studies teacher assured me that would send me straight to hell. During school holidays my under socialized friends and I would go and spy on the boys that lived next to me. Peeking over the fence as they messed around on their skate boards and added gel to their hair.
That's when my best friend and I first discovered the clothing game. The less you wore, the more they looked. So I took to changing in front of my open window and parading around in tiny tank tops and shorts.
Being raised in a fishbowl taught me to look like an angel and keep any of my slutty desires well hidden. Writing erotica is my form of rebellion.
When you are not writing, how do you spend your time?
Thankfully, I grew out of spying on my hot male neighbors after Junior high.
I have a penchant for high heels and some very inappropriate crushes on some of the people I work with. So to distract myself I shop for shoes online and pretending to be avidly absorbed in the Financial Times.
Otherwise I am busy updating my social media and staying in touch with my readers!
