Smashwords Interview

Why do you specialize in erotic romance?
I’ve found I need some spice in the stew; I feel I can’t make a proper meal without a fetish or pushing the envelope in sensuality. My novels will be plot-driven and “slow burn,” meaning the reader will be drawn into a budding romance in which desire and flirtation will come before sex. The characters always will be the focus —- their interactions and eventual love the entrees. But there will be sexual variations. In the novel I’m writing now, my lead character is confronted with several questions. Among them: should she enter the world of latex fetish at the request of a man who desires her and whom she desires unlike any other man she’s known. And then she confronts another question that is considerably more momentous. Should she avoid choosing between two men by entering a ménage a trois relationship with them, one rooted in sexual love?
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wrote a note to a lover and the response was: “You really should write erotica.” With that confidence boost, I decided to take the leap. My genre will be erotic romance— love stories with a deep erotic flavor.
