A: That’s always a tough one… I have no idea about this one.

On Writing and Writing Erotica
Q: Why did you choose to write in this genre/subgenre?
A: because Im an adult and I felt that because I could FINALLY read it without getting admonished, I would write it as well.
Q: Do you outline or do you start with a basic idea and let it flow? (plotter or pantser)
A: We have a very vague idea of what the story needs to be to further the books we are writing in a series, but we rarely plot every scene unless it’s a short story.
Q: Do your family and friends know what you write? If so, what do they think about it?
A: Yep. Well they know, but they aren’t really supportive.
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: MOIST. Omg that’s the worst word EVA!
Q: What is your favorite part of writing erotica/erotic romance?
A: the relationships. So many times they seem so cookie cutter, so it’s nice to take them off the beaten path
Q: How long ago was your first story accepted by a publisher and did you pee your pants?
A: 9 years ago, and nope, Audra and I were happy but it was a weird kinda happy. Contract was offered with conditions that we know now are wrong and shouldn’t have happened… I guess we kinda knew then as well.
Q: What are your favorite and least favorite parts of the publishing process?
A: I love editing. I love having someone there to make the book better. Sadly for the past 9 years we have only recently had an editor that does that. Least favorite is the cover process.. so many times people don’t understand what we are going for. Its why I like doing my own.
Q: Tattoos. Hot or not? And do you have any?
A: I have 7. So hot. On a guy… totally hot. All my characters have them in some way.
Q: Wine, Beer or Liquor?
Q: Dogs, cats or other?
A: Dogs! Though Audra and I are both partial to snakes.
Q: Kindle, Nook, Paper? Other?
Q: Vibrators, nipple clamps or butt plugs?
A: Um…. None? I’m not a toy girl.
Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?
A: clearly sometime on the other side caught his attention…
Q: What is the meaning of life?
