1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?
Chocolate. Totally delicious and sexy as hell, especially in liquid form.
2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?
Romance maybe 11 or so. I was home from school ill, and a friend of my mother’s gave me a Georgette Heyer novel to read.
Erotic romance maybe 14. I’d read everything in the children’s section of the local library, and my father loaned me his library card, so I could look for books in the adult section. I read “Forever Amber” by Kathleen Winsor, (which was banned in 14 states!) and was hooked.
3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)
That answer changes from day to day. I love pretty much everything from sweet to seriously kinky, and everything in between, covering all genres. Overall I likely come back to historical romance the most frequently.
4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?
Long enough for the heroine to run her hands through.
5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)
Late at night after work is done, alone at my desk with my faithful laptop.
6. Bonus question! Do your characters use birth control (i.e. condoms) and if so, how do you make the mechanics of it sexy?
They’re all individual so some do, some don’t. Some publishing houses insist on it, so the characters have to get with the program in that case. But with colored, textured and flavored condoms, using them can be fun.

“Small Woman, Big Trouble” released on 10th September.
Deb Steele hikes through a Water Authority reservation. But houses are being built on one section of it, and she can’t get home. She phones Kai Cole, and he and Harry Anders come to get her. While she’s waiting for them, her cell phone battery dies and a young man turns up on an electric scooter. When he realizes she’s quite alone, he plans to sexually assault her. She escapes from him just as Kai and Harry arrive.
Kai worries about how he can protect Deborah if this man is following her, and Harry suggests they learn karate. Kai decides the only way their beginning threesome relationship can progress further is if they all move in together.
But, as Deb is leaving work late that evening, the attacker jumps her once again. Why is he after her? How can the men protect her? And will they ever have enough time to build their friendship into a genuine relationship?
