Q. First why don't you tell us a little about yourself?

   What can I say about lil old me? I'm a multi-published and dare I say it, bestselling Erotic Author of all things naughty. I still have to pinch myself at times, when I say that. To think that readers and publishers alike enjoy the imaginings of my murky mind is humbling and terrifying and awesome all rolled into one. After, all, this is just me, doing what I love.  
When I'm not writing, I'm managing a busy household of eleven people, that is Hubby and myself and our brood of nine. The eldest has now left home, but that still leaves eight of them, plus the dog, a cat, and four gerbils.
We live in the UK and Hubby/Sir and I recently celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary. I write both contemporary and paranormal stories, which nearly always have at least BDSM elements in them—I can't think why….

 Newest release?

The Bear Project released January 9th. Here's the blurb:

When Animal conservationist Emmi Layne meets bad boy Cole Jackson there is no denying the instant lust between them. She has a thing for bears, after all. However, you cannot build a relationship on awesome sex alone, especially when you live on different continents, and have nothing in common.
Everything changes when Emmi discovers that their night of passion has left her with more than erotic memories. She has no means of contacting him, even if she wanted to, but she hasn't counted on this bear shifter's determination.
Cole is not what he seems, and he will stop at nothing to claim what's his—even if that means breaking all the rules. Can he trust the mating bond to deliver, or will it spell the end of an ancient blood line? With the odds stacked against them, can this unlikely duo find happiness together?

Be Warned: rimming, spanking, anal sex, bondage

 What can we expect from your stories, action, drama, romance, sex, blood and guts?
  Always romance, hot, dirty sex, drama and action, and that HEA. I write dominant Alphas and sassy heroines who keep them on their toes.

 Do you have a favorite character in your stories? Who? and Why?

    Sven from The Housewife and the Film Star. He was the first hero who ever growled his story into my ear, and for that reason alone he holds a special place in my heart. However, I fall in love with all of my heroes when I write their stories.

How about your least favorite character? What makes them less appealing to you?
Ah the good old villain. I'm not sure I have one to be honest. They tend to find a gruesome
end in my paranormal stories, and get dealt with in other ways in my contemps, so once the
story is written, I don't think too much about them.
They're less appealing, because they're usually darn unpleasant folks, and yes I have based
several of my nastier characters on folks in real life, who've annoyed me, shall we say.
It's a very therapeutic process.

 Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book or series:

This was meant to be a standalone, but then my heroine announced that her work colleague was a shifter, called Maria, and bang we had a series. Maria played a vital part in The Orgasm Project (book one) and she will get her own story in book three.

 Has there been any other authors who have inspired your work or helped you out with your stories?

 Every book that I read inspires me in some way and I have several favorite authors, but I have to give a shout out to Raven MacAllan. She beta reads all of my manuscripts, and her comments never fail to make me mile and strive to do my best. She doesn't let me get away with anything, and I value her honesty.
She is also a prolific and talented author, who I'm honored to call my friend and honorary grandma of my youngest son. J

 What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?

  If you've enjoyed my books, please leave a review, and above all tell your friends! I have the most awesome readers, and I love hearing from them.

 Do you have any tips for readers or advice for other writers trying to get published?

Keep on reading and keep on writing. I was a reader first, and while I don't have nearly as much time to read now, as I'd like, I still read—lots.

 Do you have a favorite author? If yes, what draws you to that person’s work?

Like I mentioned above, I have lots. You tell a good story, with lots of hot sex, make me cry, laugh, and root for your characters, then I'm hooked. Give me dominant alphas, strong heroines, and an engaging plot with that all-important HEA, and I'm happy.

Can you remember one of the first things you wrote? What makes it memorable?

    My memoirs at the grand old age of thirteen! *snort* All that teenage angst….

             Where do you gather most of the inspiration for your works?

From pictures, without a doubt, and the flashes I write to them. I'm part of Tantalizing Tuesdays (200 word flash) and Flash Fiction Friday (100 words). I take part every week without fail, and all of my recent works have started as a flash on my blog.

 Do you have any other interesting hobbies, pets or stories you would like to share?

  Hmm, it might surprise you to know that English is my second language. I'm a born and bred
German, so to speak, but I can't actually speak German very well anymore, as I've lived in the UK
for twenty-seven years now. It's kinda amusing, especially as my English teacher at school laughed
his socks off, when I said I wanted to live in England.
"Your English is not good enough for that…."

 Favorite places to travel or visit?
I love the south of France and Italy.

 And now, before you go, how about a snippet from your book that is meant to intrigue and tantalize us:( Include links to where we can find your work)

 Here is a little hot adults only snippet:
Emmi blinked several times to get her eyes to focus. Clearly having mind blowing orgasms when pregnant affected her ability to hear things properly. She could have sworn he had just said he loved her, but that couldn’t be.
"Wha-at did you say?"
Instead of answering Cole grinned and moved her until she was the one lying on the settee. He dropped a kiss on her belly and inhaled against her crotch. Even that slight pressure made her groan, and he laughed.
"I do believe I said I want you naked, sugar. We need to lose these. I want to devour you."
He unsnapped the button, hooked his fingers under the elastic side panel of her maternity jeans, and pulled the zipper down with his teeth. His hot breath teased her skin, and their gazes locked when he slipped her trousers slowly down her legs. Cole grasped her hips and pulled her down until her butt rested on the edge of the settee and then slid his hands down to her thighs, and pulled them apart.
With a wicked grin he bent down and licked up the inside of one thigh, until he reached her arousal soaked panties. He inhaled against the damp fabric and growled low in his throat, sending vibrations along her slit and into her clit.
Emmi panted her need and made a grab for his hair, but he grumbled a sharp denial into the soft skin of her other thigh.
"Hands above your head, sugar, and grab the settee. This is my show, and I'll not be rushed in my feast."
Emmi hastened to comply, but failed miserably when his rough tongue licked a path of heated awareness up her other thigh and he then used his teeth to pull her underwear out of the way.
"Hmm, so wet and swollen and beautiful. What shall I do with this pussy, sugar?"
His hot breath teased her wet folds, and Emmi shuddered when he circled her clit with his tongue. Without even realizing it she made another desperate grab for his hair, and Cole took her labia in between his teeth and bit down hard.
The sharp pain focused her and brought her arousal down a notch, and she hastily wrenched her arms back up.
"Naughty girl. I see you need help keeping those hands out of my way."
Emmi bit her lip so hard she tasted blood when he abandoned her quivering cunt and crawled up her body. With a wicked grin he reached across her and took hold of the rope that held the curtains back.
He held them up for her to see, and then ran them over her breasts and down to her mound. The tasseled ends tickled, and Emmi squirmed under the sensation of having the rope tightened across her pussy lips. With her heart hammering in her ears she watched in stunned fascination as kept on running the corded rope through her slit and then lifted it up to his nose and inhaled.
The rope had darkened in color, soaked through as it was with her pussy juices, and Emmi bit back a scream when Cole used the tasseled end to tease her clit.
Pain mixed with pleasure at the flick of his wrist, and Emmi struggled to keep her eyes open, as her body once again clambered toward release.
Cole watched her reaction out of hooded eyes, taking her right to the edge, and then he stopped. A low pitched wail escaped Emmi's lips, and Cole laughed and caught her wildly flailing hands and used the rope to tie her wrists together.
"Like I said you need help to keep those hands away, don't you, sugar?" He pushed her arms high above her head and hooked her bound wrists over the cast iron hook in the wall.
"There, now that's better. I've got you where I want you now."
Emmi gave an experimental tug, but she couldn't move her arms at all.
"Cole?" She hated how wobbly her voice sounded, but Emmi had never been restrained before, and her brain screamed at her to make her a fuss. Her body, however, had other ideas. Even as she struggled to process her feelings, more of her juices trickled out of her and down the inside of her thigh and into the cleft of her ass.
Cole swiped his fingers through her soaking wet nether lips and lifted them up to her mouth.
"Taste yourself, sugar. Lick my fingers clean."
