What's the story behind your latest book?
It's always been a fascination with me; sex in a hayloft. The idea of two people sneaking off on their own without nobody knowing and getting it on in the hay, such a turn-on. To me it's the hottest place there is to get it on. I knew when I started writing I had to set one of my stories in a barn. The innocence of the place, the rustic setting, the simple and humble way of living that is life on the farm, I can't think of a sexier place to lose one's virginity.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Apart from my vivid imagination? I was envious of guys like Stephen King who was able to just sit at a computer and make a living at it.
