Business before Pleasure:
How much real life do you put into or influences your books?
Based on the gender of books I write, I’m pleading the 5th on this question. LOL
What is the hardest part of writing for you?
I like to let the story ‘write itself’. I don’t do an outline and I certainly don’t know the outcome. The hardest part is not wrestling control away from my own characters and taking them places they have no business being.
What are your current projects?
Currently, I’m writing the 2nd Angel Knott trilogy. She’s my fantastical (and horny) Rapunzel, just released from captivity.
The Naughtier Adventures of Angel Knott will be available in a boxed set for XXX-mas.
In January, I begin a new novel.
How do you go about choosing the title for your book(s)?
Titles are VERY important to me. My brain will not sleep until it hits upon the right one. I keep lists and lists of possible titles.
When I hit upon the right one, I know it.
What is your favorite genre to write?
Erotica. Erotic Romance. Erotic Adventure.
And soon…an erotic thriller.
Hmmm…I sense a trend. LOL
Generally, how long does it take you to complete a book from idea to handing it over to your publisher?
Publisher? What publisher? Lol
I can write a novel in about six months. I prefer quality over quantity and beat hell out of myself the whole time.
Do you ever use someone in your life as a sounding board for ideas or do you prefer to work alone?
Yes, I have a friend that I share ideas with. But ultimately, it comes down to the author. I can’t write someone else’s vision.
Do your travel to research for your book(s)?
Nay! Maybe one day. Where there’s life, there’s hope, eh?
Did you learn anything while writing your book(s)?
Yes. I learned that writing a book is HARD. And, that I love it! I also learned that I have a very, very dirty mind! lol
Have you ever had an idea for a book but never written it and what is it?My life story. Let’s just say I’ve been around. But…writing the story would probably put me in a rubber room wearing a snug wrap-around sweater! LOL
When writing, do you have a process? Yes. It’s called the process of procrastination. I do everything – EVERYTHING – before heading down the steep steps of my writing ‘Dungeon’. But, I DO get there, every day…eventually…
Do you have any advice for new authors looking to make their own literary statement? Yes. KNOW EVERYTHING! I was so naive, I thought writing a book meant just that – writing. It’s not. It’s writing, formatting, publishing, building a social media platform, marketing, and a few other professions thrown in for good measure!
How many books have you written? Do you have a particular favorite?I’ve written 2 novels and am in the middle of my 5th novella.Mastered was my ‘first’ and therefore, is closest to my heart, but I love all of my babies.
Why did you choose to use a publisher instead of self-publishing? I’m self-pub’d.
Where do your ideas come from? My apparently sick little brain. lol
How many books do you currently have published? Seven.
Are you working on anything right now? Yes. I’m half-way through Angel’s Prescription, the 2nd novella in the 2nd Angel Knott trilogy.
Do you have a favorite Hero or Heroine from any of your books and why? I’m in love with James Colton. I ‘built’ him ala The Rocky Horror Picture Show. He’s my Ma-yan!
Do you have anything you would like to say to your current readers or to those that haven’t yet read your work(s)? Yes. READ MY BOOKS! lol

The Naughty Adventures of Angel Knott is fairy-tale-ish.
I describe her as a horny Rapunzel just set loose.
Angel is young, fun – and HELLACIOUSLY naughty!
How would you characterize their relationship in one word answers, start, middle and end?
What three words would you use to describe this story?
“How could she have forgotten that today was moving day? All things considered, quite easily. Pampered from birth and sequestered from the world, Angel was accustomed to having decisions made on her behalf. Father encouraged her to keep her ‘pretty little head’ free from such mundane endeavors and she was eager to oblige him. Like he always said: “That’s daddy’s department, pumkin”!”
Unfortunately, neither the brilliant micro-neurosurgeon nor his daydreaming daughter foresaw the fatal heart attack looming in his future. Crushing the scale at a whopping two hundred and fifty pounds, the esteemed Dr. Stephen Knott drew his final breath whilst porking the petite pool boy. Until that sad day, she’d spent her life as his mollycoddled ‘Angel’. His pampered princess. His punpkin’. Until that day, she’d wiled away her childhood in opulent ignorance, safe in the ivory tower built to safeguard her. That plush penthouse towered over the city, reaching into the heavens, it seemed.
