Interview

Your latest release is Covert Delivery, What can you tell us about it?

Aspen Starr is in a bind and not in a good way. His father is trying to use him to sweeten a business deal and being a bought boy toy holds no appeal. Just when he thinks he has no options left Sundae’s Custom Easter Baskets knocks at his door. Soon he finds himself blindly following a trail right into the path of a sexy new boss and a whole new mess of carnal complications.
Garren Thomas has rules and one of those is to never get involved with an employee. Easy to say, harder to enforce when Aspen is hired on. With each passing day Garren’s control slips until all he wants to do is spend his days with Aspen in his bed.
When faced with giving into his desires, Garren sees his simple life being torn apart. Can he get Aspen out of his system without losing his heart? Aspen isn’t much better off. He is drawn to Garren, but he can’t help the fear that the secrets from his past will destroy it all. As Aspen begins to lose himself within the confusion of sex and love one question plagues him: who sent the basket?

If you could give one piece of advice to aspiring writers, what would it be?

Have faith in your writing and don’t compare it to other authors’ works. You are unique and some people will love your work and others may not. Write because you love it.

What do you think is the most rewarding thing about writing M/M versus other genres?

Besides being able to interview hot firefighters and spend hours in a sexy fantasy world that I get to share? Umm…I think one of the best things about writing M/M is the community of writers and readers.

If you had to be a cat, dog, or a rat, which would you choose and why?

A dog. Specifically, a husky. I wish I had a phenomenal reason, but really its just that I love that breed of dog. They are loyal, protective, and beautiful.

If you could be one of your characters who would you be and why?

I’d be Aspen from Covert Delivery. He’s intelligent and strong, but has a wicked sense of humor. He’s kind hearted and brave. He’s a survivor. It also doesn’t hurt that he’s adorable and has dance moves that even the most seasoned strippers would be jealous of.

If the world were going to end tomorrow, how would you spend your last night on earth?

I’d spend it with my family and friends. Perhaps go to the coast, rent a house and just hang out with all the ones I love.

Who are your literary heroes outside of the m/m genre and why?

Two authors I really enjoy outside of the M/M genre are Albert Camus and Marcus Tullius Cicero. I fell in love with their works when I was in college. I briefly considered getting a degree in philosophy, but ended up getting ones in psychology and English.

What book do you keep by your bed/What are you currently reading?

My tablet and laptop are next to my bed. I wish I had time for reading. I have a great many books on my TBR list, and one day will get to reading again. Lol.

What are you working on? What’s next?

I’m working on the third and fourth books in the Firehouse Six series. Simon’s story, Fused by Fire is already in edits. Taber’s story is my WIP. Although, I do have the second book in the Pack of Light series working its way along.

I’m a born and raised Oregonian. I’ve traveled extensively in search of mischief and mayhem to fill my books. My ventures have been quite successful in inspiring a wealth of stories both sexy and humorous. It gives me a great excuse to do some crazy stuff in the name of research.
