What’s a woman to do?
Read an excerpt here.
I chatted with Lyn and asked her a few questions about writing and her books.
What makes a hero for you? Do you see them on the street, or are they simply in your head?
They’re in my life, all the time! I see courage and determination, the will to overcome the negative and stress the positive, I witness the traits I admire best in the people I love.
What is your favorite part about writing a book? What do you dislike most?
I like expressing myself and entertaining the ‘what if’ in every book. I can’t think of anything I dislike—I’m weird—I even like rewriting. Polishing is when the story gets the opportunity to really shine.
You write the male/male erotic romance relationship in a way that can completely absorb and arouse a female heterosexual reader. So what is it that’s so titillating to you personally about writing male/male and male/male/female?
The male/male wasn’t difficult to write, because I have gay male friends—I fly out to DC to visit them about once a year, and I get to watch the romance (not the sex – pull your minds out of the gutter) between them. The m/m/f is easy, because it’s a fantasy nearly every woman envisions. The f/f, however, has been different – I have a book due to release this fall for Carol Lynn’s Cattle Valley series. I’m enjoying writing it, though, because it’s forced me to examine my own perspective, what I enjoy receiving rather than giving. Once I got into that mindset…piece-a-cake.
What does your writing space look like?
I need a view, so always a window in front of me, tv, music, and cell phone beside me (I can always ignore them, but it’s a pain in the butt to want them if they’re not available).
What is your idea of a perfect romantic evening?
Dinner and a movie followed by backrubs, foot rubs, Godiva chocolate, and coffee.
What does your family think about you writing erotic romance?
My son and daughter-in-law love it. My parents are ambivalent about the erotica, but they’ve read my mainstream and enjoy it. I think they like seeing how things/interests from my past have colored my writing. Foods, places we’ve traveled, family sayings and quirks, things like that.
Thanks for chatting with me, Lyn, and all the best with Mistress Mine. It sounds great.
