Interview with Skye Heart

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Absolutely! I was in the 8th grade, and sitting at my desk in class one day, staring at a boy that I had a major crush on. Of course he didn't notice me however, because I was sort of the nerdy girl in the class, who always had her nose in a book. Then, one day I went home, thinking about that cute boy who wore the coolest pair of Nikes, and decided to write a love story about us. Using my shimmery, rainbow colored "Lisa Frank" mini notepad as my writing tool, I began developing a story-line that included about half of my classmates - and I used their real names! Despite the fact that I was still a virgin, my short story surprisingly centered around sex, lies, and deception among my peers. I became so engrossed into my fictional story, that I took the notepad to school with me one day, to continue writing, during my free time.

Then, by the Grace of God, I got partnered up with that cute boy I could never seem to look at in the eyes, without blushing. My notepad was sitting on my desk when he asked me to see it. When I handed it to him, his hand brushed against mine, and I just about died! Nevertheless, he started reading my little story, and every time he turned the page, my heart nearly jumped out of my chest. He read what I had written so far, straight through, and then asked me if he could share it with some of his friends. Next thing I knew, my little notepad was circling around the room, and they all loved it! Even the students, I did not include in the story, asked me to add them! That is when I discovered that I had a knack for story-telling.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes! The first story I have ever read was, "Nothing's Fair In Fifth Grade," by Barthe DeClements. The story captivated me, because I was reading about a bunch of girls, who were friends, that ended up having a sleepover. Growing up with very strict parents, my sisters and I weren't allowed to have friends, or socialize with anyone outside of our family. So, reading this book provided me with an escape, to a world that I wished were my reality. Even to this day, I often find myself daydreaming or fantasizing about a world, other than my own, where things are slightly different, and oh so interesting. I find that having a stimulating imagination sets me free, and releases certain inhibitions that I never thought I had.
What is the one thing that those who are close to you, don't know about you?
My family and friends have no idea that I prefer to have sex with myself, rather than a partner. Though I love men, I find self-gratification less of a hassle, and more fulfilling; not to mention, it always gets the job done <insert wink here> I know some may disagree with me, and believe me, sometimes I even disagree with me, because nothing compares to a warm body and a warm mouth... most nights.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I'm actually new to the whole ebook thing. I'm a bit old school, and prefer to hold an actual book in my hand, but I'm slowly coming around. To discover certain ebooks, I usually type in random words in the search bar like romance, sex, or interesting things to do with bananas, and voila!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
My passion for story-telling, and my desire to read books of a more detailed and graphic manner, is what motivated me to become an indie author. I love to speak candidly, which spills out into my book, and my readers are usually shocked, if not intrigued, by my writing style.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean the absolute world to me! They are the reason I continue to write, and deliver thought-provoking, tantalizing, page-turning steamy stories that always leaves you wanting more at the end. I love interacting with my fans, and hearing about how much they loved my book, and give me great feedback on what they would have liked to see happen with certain characters! Their thoughts and opinions means a lot to me, and I thrive on their evaluation of my work!
What are you working on next?
I am working on part two of my Savory Deceits series, called The Price of Deception.
What is your writing process?
I never write my books in the order that they publish. Sometimes, I write an ending of a story first (like in the second installment, of my Savory Deceits series), before I even write the beginning. Then, as the days go by, several thoughts comes into my head, and I start to add them to the body of my story. Sometimes, those thoughts or visions, comes to me in the middle of the night, and I immediately get up to write them down.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Writing, and my two children, ages 2 and 13.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend my time watching Japanese anime! I love love love Sailor Moon Crystal!!! I am such a fan, it's not even funny. I have the original 1992 version of the Sailor Moon series on DVD, and my 13 year old daughter loves it! I am so in love with Usagi and Mamoru's star-crossed love story, that I wish I could literally go into their world, and be her! I mean, she becomes Neo Queen Serenity - Queen of the Earth, with sexy Prince Endymion by her side! What woman wouldn't want that? I also love Teknoman/Tekkaman Blade II series as well, along with Street Fight II V series - Cammy, 'the beautiful assassin' is my favorite, and I have the biggest crush on Vega! I know he's a drawing, and can never be my husband, but it's fun to dream :-) Other than that, I spend most of my time watching The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, or The Lion King with my two year old son. Oh yeah, I was also a die-hard Twilight Saga fan, and I am not ashamed! I love to exercise, and pretend that I am not married to my husband - most days <insert chuckle here>
Who are your favorite authors?
Off the top of my head, I love Nora Roberts, Mary B. Morrison, Zane, and Danielle Steele, just to name a few.
