I don’t particularly like being interviewed, no matter what the reason. I have a tendency to speak my mind and sometimes, well, it’s not what people want to hear. Or, I totally screw up my answer and fret how stupid I sounded. For the first time in ever I actually didn’t ‘screw’ up. A few days ago I agreed to an open forum of Q & A at a local book club and was quite enjoying myself meeting avid readers and book lovers. Then I was asked, “Having young children, aren’t you afraid one or all of them will read your books and learn the birds and the bees from you the wrong way.”
My answer, “Growing up, how did you learn about the birds and the bees? I know for myself, it was sitting in front of the TV watching countless porn movies where women were being groped and moaning which sounded much more like protesting from deep within their chests. Even now, how many of our kids are watching porn to get an idea of what sex is all about? I don’t write books for children, and have never stated that I did. Most of my readers are married women, over the age of thirty and are looking for the excitement, intrigue, a fantasy world that a romance offers. However, if one of my books lands in a teenager’s hands, then what they’ll read is a story about love, respect, kindness…two people genuinely appreciating and loving one another. In what porn do you see this? And my books have less foul language then they hear at school on a daily basis.”
The woman sat back in her chair, bug-eyed and mouth agape. Several others applauded my answer. Point is, be prepared for all of those sneaky questions that could take you off guard.
I’m working on book 2 of The KNIGHT Brothers and I wanted to show off my cover…
Watch for the release soon!
I have a cowboy coming on May 2. Cowboy is Mine, Book 5, Cowboys of Nirvana. It’s up for pre-order.
Welcome to Nirvana. Your wish is a cowboy’s command.
An author. An injured pro football player. And hot nights in paradise. Nirvana has never been better.
Krista shows up at Nirvana, not for vacation, but she wants a divorce. Yet when she sees her husband for the first time in years, the last thing she can think about is dissolution papers and freedom. She wants to saddle her cowboy and take a ride down memory lane with her stud.
Dodge has no intention of signing those papers–at least not at the moment. Krista is as hot as a pot of oil over an open fire and he plans to show her that he has the endurance and the amazing moves as a cowboy as he had when he was a pro football player. No surprise, his wife has a thing for role playing and he’s more than happy to make his bedroom into their stage.
When a bombshell guest wants to sink her claws into Dodge’s back, Krista makes it clear, “Cowboys is Mine”…at least temporarily. She’s jealous. Dodge’ll take what he can get. He has something up his sleeve that’ll create a twist in their relationship and will put his NFL moves to shame.
