Indulge yourself in Asian Adventures – a boxed set of lush, evocative erotic romance from an author who has made the East her home.
Why did you write this book?
I’ve been living in Asia for nearly than twenty years. During that time, I’ve traveled widely. I wanted to capture some of my experiences and share them with my readers. Although the characters and plots in Asian Adventures come mostly from my imagination, the settings are real. Asia truly is a paradox, a place where lines blur. These stories are fiction, but I hope they have the ring of truth.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I like variety, so it’s pretty difficult to choose a favorite. Right now I happen to be reading two mysteries: Body Work by Sara Paretsky, and Basket Case, by Carl Hiaasen. The two books could hardly be more different. The former is intricate, dark and violent, unfolding on the icy streets of a Chicago winter. The latter is light-hearted and humorous some would say silly–laced with quirky romance and set in sunny Florida. Both offer great characters, though. I’m also in the middle of an erotic horror tale by Aurelia T. Evans and I’ve just started an erotic romance (In His Arms) by my good friend Tina Donahue. Oh, there’s also the moral philosophy book I’m reviewing for a former professor of mine…
Check back with me in a month and I’ll likely be reading a whole different set of genres!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Last time I was asked this in an interview, my answer was Sherlock Holmes. But I’d forgotten about V.I. Warshawski, Sara Paretsky’s fantastic private investigator heroine. Unlike some series, Paretsky has allowed her character to age across different volumes. In the book I’m reading now, Vic is pushing fifty, worried about her finances and her family, in a feel-good relationship that she’s not sure has a future. She’s intelligent, experienced and tough, but like all of us she has her demons, and she’s very aware of how age has reduced her energy. The thing that draws me to her most strongly, though, is her moral sense. Despite her street smarts and world-weary attitude, she takes risks and makes choices based on compassion rather than calculation. I’d love to meet her in person.
What are you working on at the moment?
My major WIP right now is The Journeyman’s Trial, the second book in my series “The Toymaker’s Guild”. This is steam punk erotica with some romantic elements, set in an alternative Victorian England. Gillian Smith, the nineteen year old engineering genius who’s my heroine, is one of my favorite creations. I’ve got half a dozen chapters written so far. April will bring me some vacation time, which I hope to be able to devote to writing. My goal is a release in the third quarter of 2021.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
My next book, coming in April, will be a re-release of my BDSM erotic romance The Understudy, a tale about an ingenue and a seasoned veteran in a summer theater troupe. Then in May, readers can look forward to a new, expanded version of my polyamory tale, Truce of Trust.
