Interview with Virginia Miller
I’m currently living in California,
though–I can hardly believe it! I was accepted to train at Los Carlos Tennis Academy,
and I’m now mingling with many of my idols. I have to keep pinching myself to make
sure I’m not dreaming.
Meaning, what is it about you that makes it so you cannot do what it is you need
to do during this story?
her. She’s a top tennis player, not just in the Academy, but in the world, and she’s
also my mentor. There are so many reasons I can’t tell her, though. She’s my mentor,
we work closely together, I’m afraid. Plus, I don’t even know if she’s into women!
you the most difficulty?
I managed to get into the Academy, but I often find it difficult to believe that
I could ever be a top tennis player. Nadia has a great deal of faith in me, however,
so I’m slowly starting to believe in myself more.
In the story world your author created, explain what it is you fear most.
even as far as the Academy, and now I’m here I want to go all the way. I know there’s
a lot of time and effort in front of me, and I don’t mind. I just don’t want to
let myself, my parents, Nadia and the Academy down.
since the first moment I had a tennis racket in my hand and got hooked on the sport.
They’ve been behind me every step of the way, and I owe them a lot–without them,
I wouldn’t be at the Academy at all. They wanted me to have a backup plan, though,
and insisted I didn’t rely wholly on tennis to get me through life and into a career–and
threatened to stop paying for my tennis tuition if I didn’t try hard in my school
education and exams. I’m so glad they did, as education is so important.
you rely on?
on tennis to get me through life and a career, and as I grew up I realized they
were absolutely right. Yes, my tennis playing has gotten me from a ratty court in
south London to
the world’s top training facility, but that isn’t just down to my tennis skills.
It’s down to hard work, sheer determination and the people I have supporting me.
I’m so grateful for them.
way your story ended? Why or why not?
way, but the ending was certainly satisfactory. I’d really like to find out what
happens next, though!

write about this character?
book, Grand Slam, but Nadia Gorlando did. I was specifically wanting to write a
F/F erotic romance novella for Ellora’s Cave’s Hot Pink series, so I figured it
would be fun to take the character of Nadia, who’d had a few appearances in Grand
Slam, and give her a love story of her own.
character, what made you the most happy? What made you the most sad?
what she really wanted made me very happy. But some of the stuff I put her through
in the interim was pretty sad. Sorry, Virginia…
Desert Heat, which is going to be set in Afghanistan.
this book do you want to write about? Care to tell us why?
working on it, but I’m not sure when it’ll get finished–things are crazy busy in
both our worlds!
for this book?
series is a sports romance series by myself and Lily Harlem. We have both co-authored
and solo projects in the series, and so far the books have had crossover between
the other books–that is, you can read them as standalones, but certain characters
and events will appear in more than one title. So there’s definitely a chance that
Virginia and Nadia will get another outing in future releases, but they probably
won’t be the main characters.
like to say to your readers?
I couldn’t do this without you–you’re totally awesome!
