Holy Cow Batman I have Chris here for an Interview
T: Good Evening Chris thanks for joining me tonight. I hope the Coors Light is cold enough? I still think you should try my dark beer.
T: I promise for this set of questions I’m going to keep things fun and light (well light for me) so let’s get started.
T: How did you start writing?
C.C.:Ha, I was bored, really. I was 16 and visiting my grandfather’s house in Oklahoma. I was home alone and grandpa was sleeping. I found his old typewriter covered in a blanket in a back bedroom and sat down to play with it. From there I just kept writing and when I returned home, I used my new YA novel to impress the girls at school. I’d pass notebooks around the class. The girls loved it. Really, if it weren’t for those classmates pushing me to write more, I might not be writing right now.
T: How often do you write?
C.C.: I have four kids so I write as often as I can. But even when I’m not witting down to work on a novel or novella, I’m in my phone notepad or on Evernote or with an actual notebook and pen in hand, jotting down notes. My mind never turns off and I’m starting to think that’s why I get so many migraines. I think too much. Even my dreams are fucking wild.
T: Without your writing cave where do you write?
C.C.: I usually just sit in a chair in the living room and write while my kids watch their shows: Flash, Arrow, Supernatural, etc. I can’t wait for the day that I have a writing cave. I live in Central America, in my wife’s country, and one day I’d like to move up to the mountains, have a writing studio that overlooks the mountains, hang old movie posters on the walls, put dorky movie-related knickknacks up on a shelf, and blast movie score while I punch out every story I can.
T: When do you write?
C.C.: Usually late at night when the kids are asleep but really I write whenever I can.
T: How do you juggle, writing, family and work?
C.C.: That’s a tough one. And it’s one that causes a lot of arguments at home. I work full time and spend about four hours per day in traffic so any time I spend writing is time taken away from family. It’s tough. That’s why I write in the living room or when I take the kids to the pool. It sucks but at least I’m there. I’m not always there, like present in the moment, but I’m there. I’m not a long distance truck driver or something you know? My kids are my life and I try to take time to be with them as much as I can.
T: What do you teach?
C.C.: I teach literature and speech to high school kids.
T: Do you create any stories from day job?
C.C.: Ha, no!!!! Can you imagine? But…well…I take that back. I do have one story in mind called Students Come and Go. It actually has nothing to do with the students but will have everything to do with the teachers. It’s a book about how students moving through the school is a constant, but the teachers have real lives too. So one young female teacher is kind of a mess, like an alcoholic club hopper and she gets noticed by her students. Stuff like that.
T: We all know you love sex. What made you want to write about it?
C.C: Ha, yes, I love sex. It’s just so much fun. It’s the one time you can abandon everything, get completely naked, fuck like rabbits, and laugh your asses off after. It’s the purest form of fun. I started writing about it on a dare really. I was writing dark fantasy/horror and a friend of mine, a fellow writer, thought I’d do well in erotica. So she dared me to try it. I jokingly said I’d write a book about a girl who gets fucked on a Ferris wheel and that’s how Kinky Carnival Games, the first Maybe Mandy book came about.
T: Do you do anything special for release day?
C.C.: I’m weird like that. Most authors plan big release days and do a lot of promoting and marketing beforehand and then do special hot yoga that morning, don’t change their lucky underwear, masturbate 5 times, or whatever their routine is. I just press publish, lol. Then let everyone know on FB. That’s probably why I’m not a top seller. I have 10 books out right now and only did a release event for one, my fully length dark fantasy, Darkness of Man. To me, writing is just fun and I just want to share my stories.
T: Favorite movie?
C.C.: I have so many now. I’m a movie fanatic. I always say Braveheart is my favorite. But I love horror movies and Halloween is my favorite horror. I love weird movies too like Tron Legacy and Sin City. Warriors, the new one with Nick Nolte and Tom Hardy, was one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time. That’s the first one to make tears well up in my eyes.
T: What do you do for fun?
C.C.: My favorite thing to do for fun is eat pussy. I’m sorry but it’s true. I’ll eat it from the front, from the back, on my back…just give it to me however. There’s nothing hotter than having her sit on your face, pussy dripping all over your mouth and chin, as she then starts grinding against your lips and tongue. Fuck, that’s hot. When I’m not eating pussy I like to hang out with my family and watch movies. I like to read too but haven’t had much time for it lately.
T: What did you do in mil?
C.C.: I was Air Force Security Forces, which is basically military police. It was fun, I learned a lot, met a lot of great people, but military life just wasn’t for me. I thought it was but once I had a family I just couldn’t imagine leaving them every year to travel overseas. God bless the men and women who do that for us. It’s not easy.
T: Where did you meet your wife?
C.C.: I met my wife in Alaska. She was there visiting her cousin who was married to a military member. I met her through them. And she was so fucking hot. I remember the first time I saw her I thought she looked like one of those girls from the latin novellas on Telemundo.
T: Do you test out ideas/scenes with your wife?
C.C.: Ha, sometimes. We’ve tried a lot of the stuff I write about but we’re not super crazy. Back to eating pussy though, when it comes to that, I’ve tried that on her just about every way possible. I’d rather give oral than receive it. Is that weird? And she does it right, no question about that, but I guess I’m just more of a giver 😉
T: Does your wife read your work? What comments does she make? What does she think of your fans?
C.C.: We just talked about this the other day. She does. She reads it all and actually she’s one of my best beta readers. Since English is her second language, when she reads, she really reads every word. Where most readers naturally skim as they read, even when they don’t mean to, she catches every word. With my recent Christmas erotic bedtime story, 6 beta readers went through it and still, after I published it, when she finally read it, she found a typo. Argh! She’s honest with me, sometimes in ways I don’t like, lol. She didn’t like my Red Riding Hood story at all when I wrote the first draft. She thought the wolf wasn’t aggressive enough and the world wasn’t fantastical enough. I rewrote it completely, from the wolf’s point of view and added some fantasy elements. In the end, she was blown away and absolutely loved it.
T: Favorite author?
C.C.: That’s a tough one. I love George R.R. Martin for fantasy. He’s the best when it comes to character development. Stephen King, minus the drug use, is my idol. The way he pumps out books is insane. Stephen Hunter is one of my favorite writers. I’ve read all of his Swagger books, father and son. He’s just such an awesome writer.
T: How much porn do you watch?
C.C.: Ha, I don’t watch as much porn as you’d think. I do watch some. I like to watch it with my wife. I like a story though. I think that’s why erotic books turn me on more than actual porn because I like when there’s build up, a reason for the sex. But don’t get me wrong. I like porn too. I love seeing women ride dick. That’s my favorite position. I love when a woman rides but not hopping up and down. When they slide forward, rubbing their pussy and clit on the pelvic bone, sliding back and forth, rolling the hips. That’s fucking riding! When it’s being done to me I like to grab her ass, not push or pull, but just feel her ass move back and forth as she’s fucking me. That’s hot.
Man, I’m gonna need to go jack off after this interview, dammit. Ok, but back to porn. I don’t watch as much of it as you’d think, but I do spend quite a bit of time on Tumblr, lol.
T: What inspires you? What gives you inspiration?
C.C.: Honestly, I’ve had some time to think about this one cause someone asked me this recently, and I think I’ve figured it out. Fans inspire me. Readers inspire me. Facebook communicators inspire me. Seeing how many real, down to earth, beautiful women just want to fuck, be fucked, have their pussies eaten. That turns me on. That inspires me. And I’m sorry if I sounded crude when I just wrote that. That’s not my intention here. But back in the day when everyone was silent about their sexual wishes…we’re not at that time anymore. Nowadays, regular people are reading erotica, regular people are admitting they just want to be bent over a desk, or lifted up onto a kitchen counter, or tied up, or have hot wax poured on ‘em, or just squat down, hover over a hard cock, contemplate sitting on it for a second, and then finally take the plunge. That shit inspires me! Wow, I used a lot of commas and probably in the wrong places in this answer. Sorry.
T: What do you do for relaxation?
C.C.: Is there such a thing? I feel like I haven’t truly relaxed in a long time. I like to lie back on the couch and watch movies with my kids. Or read. But whenever I watch movies or read I come up with new book ideas and then get mad at myself for not writing.
T: How long does it take you to write a novel?
C.C.: I haven’t written a full length novel in a long time. I will again. I have tons of ideas but the novellas are just so accepted right now and I’ve had so much fun with these shorter stories that I don’t want to take a break from them. I surprised myself with A Climax for Christmas, my Christmas erotic bedtime story. I think that was about 20,000 words, which is like 1/5th of a full novel and I did it in one day. So at that rate I could write a novel in 5 days lol. But I’d be so burnt out. Really, a full size novel probably takes a few months for me if I hit it hard. My problem is I switch back and forth between books so much. I have no less than 10 going right now.
T: Will we see more of Mandy’s dairy?
C.C.: Of course. After Daughters of Venus 2 I plan to start working on Mandy 3 and then I have plans for a full length Mandy novel to probably wrap up the series. I don’t know. I might just keep that series going forever and write one whenever I get the itch. Mandy is just so fucking fun. And she’s so hot. I’d do her. Lol. I feel like we’re going steady.
T: How do you come up with your characters?
C.C.: I have no idea. I had a producer in Chicago hand a screenplay back to me once and he told me it was funny and had a lot of potential but I needed to work on my character development. And I knew he was right. And from that point on I started working hard on my characters. If a character isn’t cool or unique in some sort of way, then I need to scrap him/her and start over. I hope I’ve gotten much better at character development. Darkness of Man has some wild characters. Wait till you read book 2.
T: What comes next?
C.C.: Oh man, I have so much going on right now. Daughters of Venus 2 is next. Then, I had a crazy ass scary dream the other night that set the tone for Diablo Snuff 2, my erotic horror. Mandy 3 is coming. I’m writing a book based on the name of my website and fanclub, Erotic Mayberry. The sequel to Darkness of Man is finished. I just need to fix a few things. It’s called Sons of Man and I can’t wait for you guys to read that one.
T: Well Chris that’s I have for you today? Until next time thanks again for joining me, now get back to work and write your next book.
C.C.: Thank you so much for having me. This has been a hoot. Hopefully I didn’t turn anyone off with my foul mouth or dirty thoughts. Please check out my books and give me a chance. And friend me on Facebook because I love making new friends. Here’s the link to my books on Amazon:
