From the first time I saw her over a decade ago, I knew she was the one for me. Even though we have a bit of difference in age, not very many, just about four years from what I’ve learned. The first quality that called to me was not her beauty, her presence or her innocence, but her soul. It…called to me like a beacon of pure pleasure, warmth and joy. A call which none could ever ignore, irresistible and desired.

She’s always held an exquisite beauty that no other can hold a candle to. Her wavy hair carries the various color combinations only found on elm bark, it even shimmers as if it’s dusted with gold when hit with the sun’s rays. Her eyes, the portals to her soul, are the color of my favorite herb, sage. There’s no other color in those beautiful depths, they’re so pure and so beautiful, untainted by any other hues. Her lips are the plumpest, juiciest morsels I’ve ever laid my eyes upon. I’d bet her kisses taste like the berries her lips coloring resembles, a deep, natural red that calls a man’s attentions, especially when they bear a smile and show her perfect white teeth. Many times have I pictured those very lips wrapped around my cock, milking it of its essence while my lips bear only her name on a whisper of pleasure.

Her body is one to be cherished and worshipped more than any Goddess who has ever existed in this realm or any other. She has the most gorgeous pair of generous breasts that I know not even my large hands could completely cover. They always seem to want to burst out of her clothing—wanting to be set free, no matter what she wears. Her legs, so strong and long, I’d swear they could wrap around me twice while I pound into her warm flesh.

Her skin bears freckling on various visible areas of her body but is most prominent are on her nose and shoulders. I’ve not yet gotten to explore her in proper light or with all of her exposed to me, so I could see if she has more in other areas. I know I would kiss each and every single one I find. It will be done even if it takes me many years to do so. Then, I’d do it all over again, starting from her beautiful face and work my way back down again. Tasting and memorizing each one until she can’t take it any longer. I’ll taste and taste until she pleads for me to take her, to ravish her and mark her with my seed.

I knew, and still know, from deep within, she’s the only one in existence that’ll match me in every way. Satisfy me, challenge me and placate me. All things I need and desire for the woman I hunger to spend my eternity with. She’s my perfect match. My Medusa, is the other half of me, the only one who can—who will make me whole, complete and blissful.

  Author Interview

Did you always wanted to be a writer? If not what did you want to be?

While I enjoyed writing, it was not my first option. My first option was to be a kick ass female wrestler, but it never happened.

When did you first consider yourself a “writer”?

It took me quite a while to actually accept it. But I’d say after I wrote my first novel, Lady’s Destiny is when I allowed it to sink in and was actually able to say it aloud.

How long did it take to get your first book published?

After the full year of talking myself out of it, it only took a few weeks to get it going and out there for readers.

Do you do another job except for writing and can you tell us more about it?

I was bartending for a while. Now, I just write and take care of my family (many animals included).

What is the name of your latest book, and if you had to summarize it in less than 20 words what would you say?

Envy’s Curse, see some of Greek Mythology’s greats as you’ve never seen them before.

Who is your publisher? Or do you self-publish?

I self-pub under Dream Z Dragon Publishing.

How long does it usually take you to write a book, from the original idea to finishing writing it?

It always varies for me. The shortest amount of time it has taken me to write 30k words is 3 months.

What can we expect from you in the future? ie More books of the same genre?

Books of a different genre? Much more of everything! I’m hoping to release another erotic thriller, a bunch more steamy paranormal romance and a new adult (or two). That may all change though with more additions *wink*

What genre would you place your books into?

That’s hard since I write more than one genre. If I had to choose, since—to date—a majority of my books are paranormal romance, I’d go with that.

What made you decide to write that genre of book?

As I stated just before this, I wrote more than one genre. So I guess you can say I never decided J

Do you have a favorite character from your books? And why are they your favorite?

I have a few favorites. But I’ll go with my very first female character right now, Wunder. She’s a kick ass heroine and is full of the spunk I admire.

How long have you been writing?, and who or what inspired you to write?

3 years now. My husband, children and my mentor, Leanore Elliott are who got me to jump write in the deep end. I’m so very happy I did.

Do you have a certain routine you have for writing? ie You listen to music, sit in a certain chair?

Always music, always my Orbit Bubblemint Gum by my side and always in MY room lol

Do you read all the reviews of your book/books?

I try my best to. I learn a lot from the reviews left for my works and am grateful for all feedback I receive.

Do you choose a title first, or write the book then choose the title?

It’s happened either way for me. I’ve had a title and wrote from there. I also wrote the story and thought of the title once it was completed. I’ve also came up with a title or two mid story.

How do you come up with characters names and place names in your books?

Depending on the story I’ll research names with certain meaning. For others, it’s whatever pops into my mind that fits the characters personality.

Are character names and place names decided after their creation? Or do you pick a character/place name and then invent them?

Again, I experience both.

Do you decide on character traits (ie shy, quiet, tomboy girl) before writing the whole book or as you go along?

As I go along. Some start of a bit quiet, shy even and then grow bold and outgoing.

Are there any hidden messages or morals contained in your books? (Morals as in like Aesops Fables type of "The moral of this story is..")

Not all, but some of my stories. One is titled: Listen, Just Once. It’s not romance, paranormal or even erotic. It’s based on a true story about a young girl whose life is pretty rough and whose parents are rougher. The message within its short pages is to never hold back your voice and close your eyes so tightly you’re blinded to the truth. It’s free at most ebook sellers for any that would like to check it out for themselves.

Which format of book do you prefer, eBook, hardback, or paperback?

eBook only because it’s easier to read while I vacuum and spend time on my elliptical.

What is your favorite book and Why? Have you read it more than once?

Pet Cemetery was my very first favorite adult read. Why, because it actually gave me a fright (I don’t scare all that easily) and it’s magnificently written.

Do you think books transfer to movies well? Which is you favorite/worst book to movie transfer?

They can when the book it stuck to. Funny you ask this second question. I feel as if Pet Cemetery was massacred when put to the big screen. I was very disappointed.

Your favorite food is?


Your favorite singer/group is?

Too many to name! My first favorite (in my teenage years) was Depeche Mode

Your favorite color is?


Your favorite Author is?

Stephen King (only because I can only name one)
