On to the interview :)....
1) I was very impressed with how you thoroughly mapped the emotions involved in such relationships.
Almost everything. I loved writing the emotions, but their interactions just flowed. Their conversations, their sex, their fights. It was a dynamic that just clicked for me. Because everyone had such a stake in this relationship and wanted such different things out of it, I had plenty of story to put down on the page.
2) Ménage has been very popular within the eBook community. How do you think it’s being received by the mass market?
That’s a great question, and the answer is I don’t know. Some authors have had great success with it, such a Lora Leigh with Forbidden Pleasures and Annmarie McKenna with Blackmailed. These are great sellers and wonderful books. I think and hope that readers who have traditionally read print romances are branching out to see what’s made some of the themes so popular in eBooks such a sudden hit with readers of print books from traditional New York publishers. But DECADENT was a book I HAD to write, so, ready or not, it will be unleashed on the romance reading world on October 2.
3) How has your writer career changed since you started out?
It’s now 20+ books strong, and I’ve written historicals, contemporaries, erotics, paranormals for 5 publishers! I’m thrilled at the doors that have opened for me and the readers who keep sending me emails. I started in a small imprint for Kensington and have worked my way through multiple genres, multiple formats and multiple houses. Everything that’s happening for me now is so exciting, and I am loving every minute of the ride.
4) What are you working on now?
My first paranormal romance for Pocket Books called TEMPT ME WITH DARKNESS. It will hit shelves September 2008. I’m hoping it will be the first in a series of books about a magical warrior society called the Doomsday Brethren. I’ve got a placeholder site for these books at www.doomsdaybrethren.com. Come by and take a peek! I’m very excited about this book. It’s a dark, sometimes funny look at a world that’s adult Harry Potter meets Heroes with a whole lotta sexy going on. I’m having such a blast with this group of magical British bad boys!
5) What do you enjoy reading?
Anything sexy with an interesting premise and an alpha male. I read just about anything in romance, but most of what I read falls into that descriptions, regardless of genre or format. I love Lora Leigh and JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood. I miss Dara Joy’s books, love Lara Adrian’s new series, read the heck out of Sylvia Day, Rhyannon Byrd and Jaci Burton every chance I get.
