Kevin sits down to a mystery chat with the charming Jon Michaelsen…
1) Where are you from?
I was born in a small town in southern Georgia, USA, but my family moved to Atlanta when I was nine years old, where I have remained.
2) What accomplishment are you most proud of so far?
There are many things in my life I am proud of accomplishing, but most important to me is the strong, solid, loving relationship I have with my partner of twenty-seven years. My second most proud accomplishment was taking the chance to begin publishing my … Continue reading
A warm welcome as we sit to talk with AJ Llewellyn…
What do you do when you are not writing?
Not writing? Er…well, I am always writing to be honest. But when I’m not, I spend what little free time I have devoted to family and friends and my volunteer work. I volunteer for Braille Institute doing Dots For Tots, putting books into Braille for tiny kids. Audio books are deadly for blind children and teens. We need them to read so they can get past high school and into college and graduate. Without the ability to read Braille, … Continue reading
Come dish with the versatile Stephani Hecht…
1) What is your favorite quote, by whom, and why?
“Get this straight, you can use a Leopard in a mission, you can send him out to kill for you. Hell, you can even fuck one. The one thing you can never, ever do is trust one. Leopards by nature are cold, emotionless and psychotic. They were made with one purpose and that was to destroy others. So whatever you do, don’t turn your back on one and you sure as hell don’t fall in love with one of the batshit, crazy loons … Continue reading
We jump and down to talk with the Queen of the College Men – Daisy Harris.
HI! Thank you for allowing me a fangirl moment at GRL. Particularly since the Holsum College men are on my list of favorites. Where did you get the idea to write a college series?
I was so flattered by your fan girl moment! GayRomLit was the first event I’ve been to where readers knew who I was, and it was such an awesome and humbling experience. I had one reader pass a booth where I was hanging out with Kelli Collins, editor at Ellora’s … Continue reading
We sit down to discuss fluffy and angsty with the queen of both – Amy Lane. Let’s pick up our knitting…
1) As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A storyteller—of any stamp. My favorite part of teaching was telling the stories and having the students go, “Aha! Those people are much like me!” And the whole time, I was dreaming of the stories I wanted to tell. It’s the thing that lights me up inside.
2) Reality tv. Fan or foe? Fit me with armor! Where is my sword! Lay about with maces … Continue reading
We sit down for a proper tea with the very correct Ava March…
What made you decide to write Regency?
I read nothing but m/f Regency romances for years, so when my own stories started spinning in my head, they were Regency-set. I love the grandeur and excess of the Regency time period. The gorgeous clothes, the strict adherence to proper decorum. Gentlemen were true gentlemen…but that did not mean they could not get up to some naughty fun behind closed doors.
Have you written any m/f books? Any contemporary?
I write m/f sensual Regency romances under the pen name … Continue reading
Kevin goes Down Under to chat with Astrid Cooper…
1) So what is life like in Australia?
Australia is a land of contrasts: Harsh deserts and lush rainforests all teeming with unique flora and fauna. Most Americans who visit Australia are impressed by the friendly people and relaxed lifestyle, the wide open spaces, the endless white beaches… Most Aussies live in the coastal regions, but others live in rural towns, or in the ‘back of beyond’ (i.e., in the true outback such as you would have seen in the film “Crocodile Dundee”). I find that life, as anywhere, is what … Continue reading
1) What do you do when you are not writing? I have a seven-month-old Chihuahua called Anwen. She thinks I should spend every minute pandering to her whims and stroking her ears. Quite a lot of time goes toward humouring her on that issue. Apart from that, I like crafts, feeding my pin-interest addiction, reading, and collecting way too many things. At the moment, I’m reading a great book by Terry Pratchett—he’s my all-time favourite author. My current collecting focus is nude statues, which I’m using to decorate my writing room. If I’m honest, I also spend a lot … Continue reading
Allison Cassatta does a three some with Lucy and Aggie… Interview that is.
1. Where did you get the idea for Dear Diary?
It’s funny, and not so funny all the same. There was something going around facebook and people were posting pictures from their senior proms. Anyway, I noticed that a lot of my gay friends took girls to their prom and shortly before that, there was a huge scandal not far from where I lived, where a girl wanted to take her girlfriend to the prom and the school said no. Anyway, they ended up cancelling … Continue reading
