What genre do you like to write?
Oh em. I love writing erotica and normal romance books. I like a doing books though which challenge me. Joe E Legend has brought several ideas to the table which challenges me and he has more to offer I’m sure in the future. We are looking forward doing a lot more in the coming year. We also have a couple other people we hope to see publishing this year and what they do with those books.
What genre is your favorite to read?
I love to read a mix. I read a lot of Paranormal and erotica. I love reading decent Historical Romances, however I can be very picky.
Where do you get your ideas?
Conversations, TV, projects I work on and everywhere really. There is just so much I do on a daily basis and its hard to get inspired or to find something to spark off a good story in my head. If I can dream it then I can write it.
What was the best thing ever said to you about your work?
“My heart stopped when your book finished.” That has to be the most touching thing anyone has ever said about my work.
Do you have a system to writing?
Yes, if I don’t break down each chapter then bad things happened and sometimes the book never gets finished. I have had this happen several times before.
I love to write in the bath. I have to say its one of my favourite places to write and its great for just finding the answers to those harder scenes your trying to write.
I love to write late at night. My mind works so well at night its ridiculous. I’m a night owl when I’m in an intense writing session. I think its because my mind forces me to focus because I know I must get so much done before I need to go to sleep.
I have an endless list of music I need to get me into the writing zones for certain books. I’ve always got some sort of album or play list going.
Always coffee or tea depending what I’m writing. If its a really difficult book. Non-alcoholic wine or beer.
Do you have people read your book before submitting it?
Only my co-author gets to see it and he’s great at keeping me from tearing the whole book a part and going through it with a knife. I’d be lost now without Joe E Legend as my co-author.
Who is your favourite character and why?
Marie, she was my dance character when I use to be a dancer. So I always love her above everyone else. When I vote out with her. I always vote for Herald. He’s just the kind of bad guy I love. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for Marie’s World out June 27th when we see these two characters and more. This book series is a spin off the Layla’s World TV show we are working on.
What is the hardest thing to write?
For me the softer scenes when the characters make an internal decision, those are so testing for me. Those are the moments I need to slow the pace down and sometimes changing pace is the hardest part for me.
Setting/Character Development/ Climax or Intense Scenes…
Setting is always an easy part for me, because I can always see in my mind where they are and the readers follow the scenes well in my experience. Character development is something I learned when I use to be a dancer, we got maybe 3-10 mins to show off a character so the book world gives me so much more freedom to develop characters and I have say its properly where I learned to do the characters. Climax and Intense scenes are something I have a great eye for,since joining forces with Joe E Legend we are able to set up nail biting moments which allows the reader to completely fall in love with the characters. I’m honoured to work with a genius like him.
Name some of your favorite authors or people who influence your writing.
Joe E Legend is my favourite author. The mind he has is amazing and there isn’t a person like him. Raven is a man who has so much to offer. This wrestling superstar doesn’t get enough credit for what he does. Michael Manna, is the most influential man I have in my life. His T4 show on the Guys From Queen’s website is my most see every week.
Lori Foster is one of my most idealised authors along with Danielle Zwissler and L. Anne Carrington.
What other hobbies do you have besides writing?
I love to watch wrestling and historical fictional shows. I love to read and spend time with my long suffering boyfriend.
Who is your favorite author?
My favourite male author is Joe E Legends, his next book due out in September. Its going to be the best book I have ever read.
He took the lead point on it. Female authors are Danielle Zwissler and L. Anne Carrington.
Oh gosh. Horse Whisperer or one of Catherine Cookson’s books.
Is there anything else you want readers to know about you or your books?
We have a release party happening with Marie’s World on 27th June. I hope you will all join us for a fun packed day and with some fun sneaky bits. https://www.facebook.com/events/129660090553990/
Synopsis- Marie’s World
Marie is a dancer who got pulled into her sisters world of wrestling. She’s been with Derek for years as dancer partners as well as lovers. Now she’s trapped between Derek and Craig with no escape. She’s about to have a meeting with the Devil. The devil doesn’t wear Prada, oh no she’s wearing Guggi and she’s out to sign Marie one way or another.
This actress isn’t about to slip through WWIC owner Nina’s fingers. She refuses to sign until her sister asks her to come and help her. Not wanting to break Layla’s wishes nor take her sisters spotlight.
Marie’s got a sister on the rocks, a devil chasing her and two men determined to have her. Where is she going to go? All of this comes to a head when she takes on her biggest challenge yet. A reality TV show about her life as the sister of the most famous writer in the world and about her own life in this dance with fate.
She dances to find her inner peace as she returns to the one city of memories and pain. The one place where it all begin for her and where she finds herself every time she returns. Sometimes you must face the music to find peace.
Craig is losing her to Derek, but he’s far from finished with her. Layla’s about to ask her for the biggest helping hand. Asking her sister for help tells Marie things aren’t going to plan. With the chance to finally finish things with Craig hanging in front of her, she’s got no other option, but to accept.
She hears of the plan which the three wrestlers are planning on using on her sister. Their plan to use her emotions against her drives Marie mad. She sees how much her sister needs her. She goes out to America now what she finds makes her more determined to do the right thing. Nothing can prepare her for what she’s about to find there.
Layla’s got feelings for them. She’s kissed one of them and desperate for a way to know how to make all of this right. Marie’s struggling to know what to do. She soon finds herself in a sticky position and has no idea how she’s going to get out of it.
Dancing with Craig is dragging up her own feelings. She’s coming face to face with the man who chased her out of her sisters life before. Is she going to find her feet before her sister gets into even more trouble?
Coming face to face with Cameron, Layla’s boyfriend she see’s Craig stand up for her and she wonders if he’s as bad as she thought. Times come to make a choice. This closes out with her becoming confused and her wondering about the future, whether or not she can survive the new life her sisters created.
This book leads into a series of books from the main characters, Will, Craig, Marie, Layla and Cameron. Showing off a range of characters and this will give the reader a ride from one book to the next book. Nothing will quite be the same again for any of them. Wrestling’s getting invaded by dancers and romance. There is nothing they can do about it.
