Interview with JL Patrick

What do you read for pleasure?
I enjoy reading anything! But my favorites are generally fiction. Stephen King, Anne Rice, Tami Hoag, Dan Brown, among many others. As long as it peaks my interest and keeps me entertained! I love short stories and novels alike. My all time favorite books are the Sleeping Beauty Trilogy by Anne Rice, I have read them all at least 5 times!
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a very small town in upstate New York with a family that was very big in outdoor activities and reading when weather would not permit us to be outside! We never had tv's in our bedrooms and I have never owned a video game. My mother always told me to "go outside" or "read a book"! I spent the majority of my summers at a cabin with no tv, I learned to hunt and fish and navigate my way through the woods. I think the lack of general media influence has harbored and nurtured my creative side, which in turn helped me with writing.
Describe your desk
I don't have a traditional writing desk per say, I write when and where ever I have an idea! At times I pull out the notepad app on my phone, just so I don't lose the thought that popped into my head! Once I have a bunch of notes, I will sit at my little computer desk in the corner and mush all those little thoughts into a story. I am considering converting my extra bedroom to my library and writing area (my visitors won't have a place to stay anymore...)!
What's the story behind your latest book?
I guess my inspiration for my first little book would be Sleeping Beauty by Anne Rice and 50 Shades by EL James.... I read these books and I fell in love with the idea of reading erotica! I figured now that this genre is becoming more mainstream, I'd give it a try. I enjoy reading and I've learned that I enjoy writing just as much!
