Interview with Marie James

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to bring my fantasies to life and share them with like-minded readers. I try to make my stories flow and while I'm not perfect, I do attempt to use good grammar, eliminate typos, and avoid awkward sentences that take the reader out of the story. I hate it when I have to read a sentence a few times to try to make sense of it or I notice the characters are on the couch, then on the bed in the next sentence. It drives me crazy, so I hope I also have continuity in my writings. I take my time writing these and don't crank them out en masse and I hope that shows.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I'm currently working on a book titled "My Best Friend's Dad" and hope it will be close to full novel length. This is my first non-incest book, so it's been an interesting journey, lol. I am thinking about an uncensored version for Smashwords only that will have everything I love: daddy-daughter incest, water sports, and new to me - bisexual encounters (MM, MMF, MFM, MMFF). I really love these characters and could have a lot of fun with an uncensored version.

Piper and Janie meet when they're 12 y/o and become best friends immediately. Piper is infatuated with Janie's dad, John, the moment she sees him. When Piper and Janie turn 18, Piper thinks Janie's dad would still never be interested in her, but she's in for a surprise. And then there's gorgeous, 23 y/o, pre-vet med student Andrew, who makes his appearance in Piper's (and subsequently Janie's) life when Piper and John hit a rough spot. Lots of twists and turns, and of course, lots and lots of hot sex.
What are you working on next?
Two daddy-daughter books and an erotic romance centered around watersports exploration.
Who are your favorite authors?
Goodness, there are so many! While I have more than 30 authors that I have marked as favorites and follow on Smashwords, there are several who I follow religiously. These wonderful authors have been an inspiration to me in my own new endeavor to write and to whom I'd like to say thank you: Lisa Smiles (I've bought every single book of yours!), Lolly Pope, Lilly James, Tori Westwood, Amber FoxxFire, Timothy Spears, Zehn Harlock, Veronica Sloan, Aimee La Bouche, Sara Kitty, Izzy Slam, Lily Weidner, E. V. Nyx, Penelope Liksit, Nocturas Dreamwhisper, and Dee Dee Zee to start.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have always loved the taboo and was inspired by many authors I listed in my Bio.
When did you first start writing?
Actually, I wrote short sci fi stories in high school and college many years ago (sigh), but only recently started writing again. I'm writing solely erotica at this time.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I work full-time and volunteer for a cat rescue.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Austin, Texas. I think that growing up in a liberal city that embraced artistic creativity and awesome live music fostered imagination and originality without limits.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
By allowing me to express myself, and to publish and share my controversial-themed book. I will hopefully write and publish more books in the near future. I already have ideas written down for a few more.
What was your first book about?
My first erotica book, The Seduction of Gracie, is a story about a father who is attracted to, and obsessed by, his daughter. He is fighting his conscience about what is right and wrong. And he has a love of water sports that he's never really been able to explore before and finds his daughter is quite interested in that as well. He slowly pursues Gracie and when Gracie finally reciprocates, their love is explosive (and wet, lol).

What happened between me and my father was my fault. I instigated it. Society would say it wasn’t my fault he impregnated me, regardless of what I’d done to deliberately tempt him, but I disagree. I was definitely not innocent in how I manipulated my dad into having sex with me. I put the idea into his head and woke up the beast.

I loved my father like nobody’s business. I loved his lean swimmer’s body with washboard abs and his sexy salt and pepper hair. He was only thirty-six years old, so he was still really hot. After Mom died, it was just the two of us against the world, and I realized I’d taken her place. And I saw my dad as a very sexy man, not just my father, and I wanted him.
