Romance Weekly – March 18 #LoveWriteChat

This week … my favorite author and how she inspires me…


Who is your favorite author other than yourself in your genre and why?

JOPICJo Davis is my favorite romance author. She first intrigued me with her novel, Trial by Fire. I devoured her entire Firefighters of Station Five series and several of her paranormal Alpha Pack series she writes under J D Tyler. She writes even hotter in her erotic SHADO Agency novels. Her books are categorized as romantic suspense, but the action and emphasis on the love story suit me more then others I’ve read in the genre.

The way she weaves words and her deep point of view sucks me in like a vortex. Her seamlessly passages evade passive verbiage and the woman writes some of the best love scenes I’ve ever read. **pant pant**

What is your favorite book by them and why?

I’d have to say the Trial by Fire. For the reasons above and I fell in love JDFFwith the haunted hero and his sweet love interest who taught him that a fishing rod can be a dangerous weapon when provoked. I also love When Alex was Bad. Whew! I heard she sold movie rights to that single title erotic. Some Fifty Shades fans would probably need smelling salts to finish. How many wives would give their husband a “hall pass” with a stipulation he must come home and confess every detail under the tutelage of her crop and other toys? Don’t get the wrong idea, she gets to have her fun, too. Can you say ménage? **fans self**

What about their style inspires your writing?

Jo’s words flow across the page an effortless manner entrancing me with images and emotions that totally invest me in her characters. And if that ain’t enough, her love scenes are scorching.

Romance Weekly – March 11 #LoveWriteChat

This week … what books influence my writing and my favorite shoes…


When someone finds out you’re an author, how do you handle the statement, “I have a story you should write?”

That’s usually my son, pitching a new adult story and I tell him to write it.grimace I’ve encouraged him to write a screen play since he loves movies. Others have suggested that I write a story about where I work. I like my job, but NO! Writing is an escape from my day to day.

Do you write what you read?

bulldog wearing eyeglasses sleeping over a good novelFor the most part. I like reading action oriented romances. My favorite author is Jo Davis’ and her series, The Fire Fighters of Station Five. I also enjoy reading Lori Foster and Lora Leigh. Outside of romance, I read non-fiction military, like American Sniper, Outlaw Platoon, Trident K9 Warriors, and No Easy Day. I’m currently engrossed in Fearless at the moment. I respect, admire and thank our country’s military folks. Without them, shudder to think…

People often mistake the lifestyle of a writer as glamorous, give us the scoop, what about your lifestyle would shock your readers?

I work full time and my house was built in the seventies. The year of the vehicle I drive predates the second millennium. It is a classic, however, and I made a character in one of my books. I write flip-flop casual heroines and wouldn’t know what a pair of Manolo Blahniks are, except for having watched HBO’s Sex in the City.high heels
