1 Tell us a little bit about yourself (family, hobbies, pets, etc).
I’m a married mother of two boys. I live in regional New South Wales, Australia and recently purchased my childhood home from my parents.
2 How did you get into writing and why romance?
I fell in love with reading romance when I was pregnant with my first son. I wasn’t much of a reader before that. I was a hard worker and the downtime was unnatural for me. But like everything in my life, I took to it with obsession. I became an avid reader straight away. I even started the Riverina Romantics blog. Writing was a natural progression.
3 Do you ever re-enact the sex scenes you write about?
No. My sex life is my own.
4 Name a romance book or series you would love to see as a movie/TV Series.
The Black Dagger Brotherhood. Can you imagine how lickable those vampires would be?!? Oh, and Kresley Coles Immortals After Dark…and don’t forget her contemporary, erotic romance – The Game Maker series.
I have a long list.
5 Have you ever read a book based solely on its cover?
Umm, I kinda read most books based on the cover. 😉 * Me too *
6 What is your ideal way to end a long day?
A glass of wine and a good book. A glass of wine and a good movie. Pretty much a glass of wine and anything that doesn’t involve thought.
7 Describe your ultimate holiday.
I’d love to go everywhere and anywhere. But ideally, somewhere private and peaceful that has a stocked liquor cabinet and heaps of food so I can write for hours. Oh, and it has to be warm.
8 Who is your favourite book boyfriend and why?
I don’t have a specific man. However, I did fall hard for Aleksei in The Professional. I like my men dominant but easily malleable to their heroine.
9 What turns you on and what turns you off?
Turn ons – a gentleman in public and a devil in the bedroom. A wicked smile and kind eyes.
Turn offs – Ignorance.
10 Boxers or briefs? Or commando???
11 Who is on your top five “Freebie List”? Who could you sleep with that your partner won’t mind?
Raffaello Balzo, Jason Momoa, Stephen James, Henry Cavill & Taylor Kitsch. * No offence to our previous Authors Of The Month, but I think this is the best list I’ve ever seen. Do you mind sharing? *
12 You have a table booked for four in your favourite restaurant. Who would you invite to join you?
Author friends. I don’t have any writing buddies where I live, so catching up with my critique partners and author friends would be perfect.
