Interview with M.T. Miles

When you start writing, do you already have the story fully plotted or do you let the characters dictate what will happen?
Generally, I start with a rough outline of the plot and then I let voices of my characters dictate the details.
What inspired you to write erotic romance? Is this the genre you started writing in?
I have only ever written in the erotic romance genre. It is where I feel at home. Like many writers in that genre I have been inspired by the success of E.L. James and Fifty Shades of Grey. But what I write is nothing like Fifty Shades.
Who was the toughest character for you to "get right" that you have written so far?
Glen’s mother, Vicki, was the hardest character to write. I am afraid that I don’t have a particularly puritanical mindset.
Do you draw inspiration for your characters from real life?
I think all authors of romantic fiction draw inspiration from real life characters and situations.
Do you have a favorite movie?
My favorite movie of all time is Casablanca. I have a big crush on Ingrid Bergman and who doesn’t love Humphrey Bogart?
Where can readers find you ?
I mostly tend to hang out on twitter: @MtmilesM and on facebook:
What's the story behind your latest book?
Nothing could be more commonplace than a shrew and her hen pecked husband. The most mundane appearances are apt to deceive. My characters are dysfunctional. Claire feels neglected by her mother and exposed by the men who claim to love her. She must fight for her own survival and that of her son. Trapped in a web of corporate deceit, her security rests in the arms of her husband, a man with a secret, unbecoming a man.
Where were you born and where did you grow up?
I am an Aussie. I was born in Sydney and now live in Brisbane.
