Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is Broken Dolls. There were two things I wanted to challenge myself with in this title. 1. I wanted to write an erotica title without intercourse. (I know that sounds utterly bizarre but it sprang from a conversation wondering why intercourse is the only thing we typically define as "real sex" and the finish line that is the "goal" and what if it was only one of many options? Then I decided I wanted to write a story where it wasn't on the menu at all.) 2. I wanted to redeem a character from another book.

Brian, a villain-type character in a previous book, Guilty Pleasures, was nagging me for his own book. I hated him in Guilty Pleasures and didn't expect to give him his own book. In fact, I thought the less time I spent with him the better, and thought I'd write his little part and then be done with him forever. But it didn't work out that way. Once his back story began to reveal itself to me and a new character showed up that might be his match I began to like him quite a lot and started telling my readers "I'll make you want to have Brian's babies!" (Having read about Brian in Guilty Pleasures and most hating him, too, they didn't believe me.)

Brian is now probably my favorite character I've ever written and the dual challenge of redeeming him while taking "the most common and expected sexual activity" off the table in an erotica novel was definitely a fun challenge I'm glad I took.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Legos, listening to classical music, symphony, ballet
