Look who decided to cut out of work early, and chat with me
T: Good Afternoon Ethan thanks for joining me. I hope the Honey Jack is strong enough?
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: Where did you meet your fiancé?
Believe or not through friends of my family.
T: You’ve said Terry, reads your work, what comments does she make? (Three part question)
Yes, she does read my work and is probably tougher on me than any editor. She does help with my female characters, letting me know… Um a woman would never say that or feel that way.
Does she make suggestions?
What does she think of your fans?
Honestly, when I first began all my crazies, she was annoyed. Now, she just shrugs her shoulders, because she knows me well and how I conduct myself with my friends and readers…with respect.
T: On that same note what does your mom and sister think and/or say? (Two part question)
LMAO, my mother just shakes her head; my sister is a huge influence.
Do they read everything?
My mother’s words, “you’re all nuts, but if it makes you happy.” My sister reads everything.
T: Is there any author, past or present, you would want to collaborate with?
I would have loved to have written with POE. Writing with any author, you have to connect, so at the moment not many.
T: You’ve said you might want to try your hand at horror or crime. What intrigues you about those genres?
I like keeping a reader on edge…waiting. Which would you try first? Horror, then crime.
T: I know you use a pen name and that you’ve said when you retire you’d come out. If I’m right you’re in your forties, so would you really come out in twenty years when you retire?
Yes, in a few years I’ll be able to walk away from my current job. Yes… LOL. Instead of pieces, you get the whole thing…bahahaha.
T: What’s your favorite Skyline Chili or Gold Star? (I’m sticking my tongue out at you)
Uh…well, NYC skyline and Wendy’s Chili.
T: What did you learn when you took your journey into the BDSM world?
I learned control. I learned a great deal about myself: my weaknesses, strengths, and my so called kinks. I also learned that I must be in control.
T: How much of that journey do you write about?
Whenever I write about BDSM, I put everything I’ve learned into my writing.
T: What draws you to strong confident women?
I don’t like indecision. I like a woman who can make decisions and is happy with herself. Just because your submissive doesn’t mean you aren’t strong and confident, quite the opposite. Do you use the same draw when writing your female characters? Yes.
T: Why don’t you think people are comfortable with male erotic authors?
Hmm…some people are comfortable. I still think there is a barrier for male erotic writers, maybe even fear.
T: You’ve been writing since you were a kid, did it ever get you into trouble?
YUP…with one girlfriend…let’s say I changed the names to protect the innocent…bahahaha
T: Who or what inspires your writing and characters? Why what is it about them/it?
I like to base my characters on people I know in real life. I also love to think up certain characters. Ones I’d like to act out, shock people with.
T: What author (in all history) would you want to help bury a body with?
H. G. Wells
T: What comes next?
More of Desires of Blood, Dark Desires, Gentlemen’s Agreement, more biker shorts, and I think a follow up to DOM.
T: Well Ethan that’s all I have for you today? Until next time, thanks again for joining me, now get back to work and write your next book. Licks… You are welcome.
