What is your most current work out?
most recent work is
Nemesis from Whiskey Creek Torrid. It's
a vampire/fantasy/historical about a young queen whose
husband dies in war. She ends up being taken prisoner by
the victorious vampire general, Nemesis.
Tell us a little about Nemesis, what inspired you to
been writing erotic romance for a little over three years
now and I like experimenting with different story lines.
I'm especially inspired by tough alpha heroes and try to put
them in interesting situations that show their unique
Nemesis came from my desire to write a different kind of
vampire story. He is a seven foot tall black vampire
general working for a vampire king. The whole story centers
around a fantasy world where vampires have their own kings
and queens. As most vampire fans know, writing a new twist
on the vampire love story is a tall order because there are
tons of great paranormal stories out there. But I do my
When you start writing, do you already have the story
plotted out or do you let the characters dictate what will
have to plot my stories. I pick up those essay books from
the office supply store and write each scene until the tale
is done. I started getting away from it for a while but the
stories are longer when I plot so I'm back to it.
Do you have a favorite character you have written?
all time favorite is General Gavin Theron from the Siren
Warrior series. He's a really complicated hero with a lot
of emotional baggage. But his obsessive love for his wife
is sooo sexy.
Do you have a character that you look back on now and
not too crazy about Doctor Jason Masters. He's kind of
Do you draw inspiration for your characters from real
life? Any fun stories you could share?
draw all my characters from real life. Gypsy Theron is very
much like some of the friends I had when I was a teenager.
Her father Gavin is an interesting mix of a few really cool
adults I knew growing up including some sprinkling of my own
father thrown in.
I dated a lot of supper sexy men
when I served in the Navy. Lindsey and I have a book coming
out in June from Carina Press called “Hunters” and the
hero's loosely based on a smoking hot boyfriend I had once.
Probably one of my best stories comes from my first visit to
a male strip club in San Diego. “Incubus Nights” (Whiskey
Creek Torrid) is based on that night with some sexy fantasy
thrown in LOL.
Name one thing that your readers would be surprised to
know about you.
love to sew but I'm terrible at it. In fact, I'm lousy at
Do you have a guilty pleasure?
CREAM (note she yelled that one in all capital letters
What do you need before you start writing? Any thing
that is just a must have or the creative juice don't flow?
A quiet corner and some hot tea
Does music influence your writing? If so, does any of
your stories have a theme song?
Tons of my stories have theme
songs. Off the top of my head, Machine Lust: Black Copper-Korn's
Twisted Transister, Siren Warrior BK 3-Awake's Monster,
Siren Warrior Bk 8-Maniac Lulliby (coming soon) Lady GaGa's
If your story was optioned for a movie, who would play
Sandra Bullock would be Gypsy Theron, Gerald Butler General
Kharon, Laurence Fishburne would be great as Nemesis
Where were you when you got your first contract? Who did
you tell first?
first contract was from Double Dragon ebooks for Naked
Venom. I told my best friend first LOL.
What are you currently working on?
I'm working on a shifter story
called “No Laughing Matter”. I'm also working on book 8 of
the Siren Warrior Chronicles. We have a bunch of those
