What is your favorite kind of chocolate (we think every kind of chocolate is the best LOL)?
Cadbury’s Dairy Milk – I love it!
What do you like most about creating websites?
I’m a creative person—so writing makes sense for me, as does creating websites and knitting. It’s great to have a finished product at the end of it.
If you could change one thing on your path to being published what would it be, and why that one thing?
I wouldn’t change anything. I’m not saying my career so far has been perfect, but things that have gone wrong, mistakes I’ve made are things I’ve learned from. So hopefully it’s all made me wiser and more cautious going forward.
How do you come up with ideas for your stories? Who is your muse if you have one?
My ideas come from absolutely anywhere and everywhere. People, places, overheard conversations… the list goes on. I have an awful lot of muses—this is where my love of hot male celebrities comes in handy. At the moment I’m rather inspired by Tom Hiddleston.
Who are your top 5 most loved erotica authors?
Portia Da Costa, Saskia Walker, Janine Ashbless, Sommer Marsden and my fellow Brit Babes.
Which character has been your favorite to write about?
I really loved writing Alice Brown from Stately Pleasures. Part of that is down to the fact that it was my first novel, and part of it is down to the character herself. She’s just a normal girl, bigger than average but mostly happy in her own skin. Then these two gorgeous guys give her a sexy ultimatum… what’s not to like?
If you could meet one of your female lead characters in real life, which one would you choose and why that one?
That would be Alice, because of the reasons above!
What do you like most about writing Sapphic erotica?
I love variety—so writing different genres and pairings keeps me interested and on my toes. I started writing lesbian stuff just to see if I could, but I find I enjoy it. It can be tough at times, especially trying to keep body parts in the right places, but I like how different it is to write a story with bodies with dips and curves, and soft places. Equally, I like writing gay stuff because penning naughty books with lots of angles and hard places is great, too!
What piece of advice did you receive as newbie writer that was the most helpful?
To read lots in my chosen genre—and I always pass that on to any newbies that ask for advice. It applies across all types of writing and makes perfect sense.
What is your favorite free promotions tip?
Social media—love it or hate it, it’s here to stay. Readers are already on social media, so get out there, find them and show off your fantastic books!
What is your favorite paid for promotions tip?
Blog tours. They’re a great way to really engage with your audience. There are lots of ways to do this, of course, but I find blog tours, depending on the types of post you write, to be very personal and unique, and hopefully the stuff you write about will really draw readers in and make them want to buy your books.
