What do you read for pleasure?
I only read romance novels right now. I like reading my fellow erotic romance authors' works because I enjoy the stories, see how their stories are told, and hope to become a better writer every time I come out with a book.

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first erotic romance stories I have ever read are Kallypso Masters' *Rescue Me* series, not E.L. James' *Fifty Shades.* I just kept flipping the pages of Kallypso's books and wanted to know more about what happened to those characters. Her characters pulled me in right away.
I was so happy when I found out that Kallypso writes like I do--lets the characters lead her. Her writing process is also "organic," to borrow a term from another one of my favorite authors Sylvia Day. I'm so glad I found my favorite genre to read--romance. I read all things romance, except horror/thriller and inspirational.
