About the Author
I am over the age of 35, am a military veteran and brat. I decided to give writing a try after years of exposing those around me with my vivid imagination and not doing anything about it.
What inspires you to write romance books?
Relationships and sex, the good and the bad. It is an opportunity to explore avenues not taken through the lives of my characters.
Tell us about how you write:
I am an outliner for the most part. For the short stories I just do basic outlines to cover the main parts. I do develop characters to some extent for my stories. The longer stories require more development than the pure Erotica. For my first book I used the alphabet. Main character names (first name) for each letter of the alphabet, job of counterpart and a kink. Then I sit back and brainstorm to see if I can tease out an overarching plot, character arc, subtext, subplots, etc. Once I figure that out I sit down and ask myself for each part, "Okay, what has to happen or be accomplished by the end of this." Then I just sit down and write.
Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I do listen to them, but not so much talking or my dog looks at me weird.
What advice would you give other writers?
I'm not sure I'm in a place where I can give advice. It would be like the blind leading the blind.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I have so many ideas in my head that they keep me up at night. This leads to insomnia which then creates health issues for me. So I figured I'd exploit it to at least help me buy wine to cope.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think it will swing back and forth between traditional and self-publishing. I don't feel any shame in self-publishing. I know it will take a lot more work, but I'm okay with that. It does make me work harder each time to put out a better product. I can't say the same for some traditionally published works. Some I have read are atrocious.
