On Writing and Writing Erotica
Q: Why did you choose to write in this genre/subgenre?A: I actually didn’t plan on writing an erotica story for Ellora’s Cave, so when my editor told me it would be published in the Exotika line, I was surprised and delighted. Originally, I found so much more freedom in being able to write graphically sexy scenes in romance.
Q: Do you outline or do you start with a basic idea and let it flow? (plotter or pantser)A: Normally, both. In this case, I had the concept, started writing, and ended up with a story I felt could be published.
Q: Do your family and friends know what you write? If so, what do they think about it?A: They laugh, they wonder, they joke about me writing smut. Some don’t say much, maybe to be polite.
Q: In erotica/erotic romance, the sex is depicted graphically. Are there any specific words or phrases you aren't comfortable using in your stories? Word or phrase that makes you say “ick”?A: It depends on the character. I may not like the word but if it suits the character, I might use it anyway.
Q: What is your favorite part of writing erotica/erotic romance?A: Freedom to challenge the limits of my own perceptions and expectations.
Q: How long ago was your first story accepted by a publisher and did you pee your pants? JA: In 2003. I jumped up and down then sat at my desk in disbelief then jumped up and down some more.
Q: What are your favorite and least favorite parts of the publishing process?A: Waiting to get a response on a submission. I hate the waiting.
Q: Tattoos. Hot or not? And do you have any?A: Hot only on hot men and then in moderation. I’d never get one.
Q: Wine, Beer or Liquor?A: Wine and beer.
Q: Dogs, cats or other?A: Dogs. Probably tigers if they could be pets.
Q: Kindle, Nook, Paper? Other?A: Paper. Still. Although I’m inching toward Kindle.
Q: Vibrators, nipple clamps or butt plugs? JA: Wouldn’t you like to know?
Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?A: To get there first.
Q: What is the meaning of life?A: How much time have you got?
