Author Interview

When did you know you wanted to become an author?

I knew from the moment I began telling stories to my younger sisters. There was something in storytelling that made me feel complete, and it seemed like the natural progression one takes when on a journey.

Where did you get the inspiration for Dance for Fools? 
I’ve always danced around the subject of writing an erotic piece. I had dabbled in erotica once before, about 3 years ago and it was only flash fiction. But in August 2012 I decided why not give it a go, and thus The Rose Saga was born. The first novella in the series, The Curse of the Rose was well received and has gained some lovely 5 star reviews. A Dance for Fools is the follow up to that, and was a thrill to write.

What is you editing process like?

When I write, I tend to get it all down, hit my target word count, then comes the revisions. The period when I add the meat, bulk up the flesh and whittle out any problems in the flow of the plot and character development. I normally edit whilst I do this but then I pop the file away for a month or two, and that’s when the edits begin. I re-read, edit, revise and edit again before submission to the editorial team. I can’t say I am perfect, I never catch each flaw, but I like to think that I do make a fair effort at the edits. 

What was the most challenging part about writing your book?
I didn’t want my sex scenes to harbour on pornographic. So  writing them in a sensual way was important to me. I read up on a lot of erotica and let me tell you, I was very surprised. 

What are your writing goals for 2014? 
2014 is a huge year for me. I have my first MG novel debuting on March 8th – The Taken – and it is going to be an amazing ride for all my younger fans out there. I also have the third Rose Saga book releasing May 12th. I have an adult thriller releasing later in 2014, the date has yet to be confirmed. 

Are you working on something right now? If so, can you tell us more about it?

Currently, I am putting the finishing touches to my adult thriller, Stone Cold, which follows Nathan Stone, a native of Northern Ireland who has turned his back on his Catholic roots and becomes obsessed with Thelema rituals. He goes on a murderous killing spree, spanning 20 years, and it takes two detectives on either side of the Atlantic, working together, to bringing Stone to Justice.
