1) How would you describe your book, it’s genre?
I call my book Contemporary Romance (18+). I wasn’t sure about going into this steamier territory, and started off trying to write a book that went “fade to black. . . “ when the action started; but this particular story couldn’t be told without very intimate scenes. It’s tricky to be truthful about the experience without using either a lot of fluffy euphemisms or pretty coarse “straight-up” talk. It made me realize we don’t have a great vocabulary for discussing sex.
2) How long have you been writing? How long did it take to write your book?
This is my first Contemporary Romance. It has take me about two and a half months to write, though there was a fair bit of thinking about it before I ever sat down at the computer.
