I would like to thank Marie Sexton for taking the time to talk to us about Normal Enough. Check out Caroline’s review for Normal Enough here. There is also a giveaway, so stay tuned for that.
Your latest is Normal Enough. What can you tell us about it?
Normal Enough is a fun and sexy little fetish story about a mechanic named Kasey. Kasey believes he’s abnormal because of his unusual affinity for certain classic muscle cars. Then he meets Brandon, and he begins to realize that maybe he doesn’t need to change himself. Maybe he just needs to change his definition of “normal.”
Normal Enough is a fairly short novella. I think it’s less about falling madly in love, and more about meeting that person who suddenly inspires you to redefine yourself in a positive way. (With the exciting promise of developing into full-fledged love eventually.)
Incidentally, Normal Enough and L.A. Witt’s story Wrenches, Regrets, and Reality Checks are set in the same garage. We were both writing stories for the Grease Monkeys, Inc Amber Pax, and we thought it would be fun let our characters have cameos in each other’s books. Her book takes place about a year after mine.
If you could be any Disney character who would you be, and why?
I think I’d choose to be the genie, now that he’s free from his lamp. [Poof] I’m in the Caribbean, [poof] with a pina colada in my hand, [poof] getting a massage.
If you could be one of your characters who would you be and why?
Jared, because he gets Matt. I’ve always adored Matt.
If you could promote your books in anyway money no object what would you do?
I’d pay somebody else to do it! Promotion is a necessary evil, but to be honest, there are about a hundred other things I’d rather do with my time. I’d love to have a publicist who took care of all the legwork for me.
If you had to be a cat, dog, or a rat, which would you choose?
A cat, because all cats get to be divas.
If you could rewrite your first published novel (Promises) what would you change?
I’d take out the shootings. Not sure what I’d put in their place to carry that last part of the novel, but that’s the first thing I’d change.
How will the world end?
The world will probably cease to exist when the sun enters its red giant phase and swallows Earth whole. However, humans will have long since been hunted to extinction by their zombie cat overlords.
(For the record, never ask an astrophysicist this question. They don’t believe in short answers.)
What is next, what are you working on?
My next book is another novella called Roped In, which I wrote with L.A. Witt. It’s about an animal rights activist and a rodeo roper. It’s HOT, if I do say so myself. 😉 It’ll be available from Amber Allure on April 20. And right now, I’m wrapping up book two in a new series. The first book is called Release, and will be published in late June under the pen name A.M. Sexton. Book two will be published in October. For those who follow me on Twitter, this it the dark, kinky, semi-cyberpunk I’ve been going on about for nearly two years. You can find more info about Release here, and more info about my decision to publish it under a slightly different pen name here.
Where can readers find more about you on the web?

I’m also on Facebook, but I admit I don’t actually hang out there very often.
From the Publisher:
When Brandon Kenner shows up at Kasey Ralston’s garage with a 1970 Chevelle SS 454, Kasey is smitten by both the man and his car. Between what Kasey considers a shameful fetish and his long estrangement from his family, Kasey finds it easiest to be alone, even distancing himself from his coworkers. But Brandon doesn’t think Kasey’s fetish is weird. In fact, he likes it.
Kasey doesn’t know how to resist a man as charming as Brandon, and he’s more than willing to be seduced. But what are Brandon’s long-term intentions? Kasey is afraid of hoping for too much, but equally afraid that when all is said and done, Brandon will leave, and Kasey will be left alone once again.
