Why this book and why now?
I started writing Hotel Fantasy towards the end of the pandemic, when everything was opening back up and my friends and I started talking about traveling again. My one friend suggested a road trip to the wine country of northern California, and this quirky hotel that’s in that area and advertises these cute theme rooms, popped into my head. So, it got me thinking…what if I wrote a story about a lesbian resort in Las Vegas that offers luxury casitas designed with fun “adult” themes in mind, where couples can enjoy putting a little spark back into their relationship. Add in a mysterious guest and a one-of-a-kind poker game, and the idea quickly morphed into a sweet little erotica romance.
Would you and your main character(s) get along?
We would totally get along. Although both main characters in Hotel Fantasy are very driven in their careers, they also have a humorous and quirky side to them that would create those moments in life when months or even years later I’d reflect back with a sentence that started with “remember that time when we…”
What 3 things would your main character want with them if they got stranded away from civilization, and why?
Okay, I’m going to assume they’re stranded on a beautiful tropical island. So first they would obviously want their special deck of playing cards, since that’s what brought them together in the first place. Second, a couple of cases of wine and third a puppy. Okay, that last one I might be projecting, but between those three items, I have a feeling my characters could enjoy being stranded for quite a while. In fact, I might join them.
One of your main characters is planning a romantic night. Tell us about it.
I would say a romantic night would consist of a tasty Italian meal, eaten under the stars on a beautiful patio surrounded by tons of candles. The dessert would be served in their private pool, where swimsuits would be optional.
What song does your character put on to start your book launch party?
I’ll go old school with this one and say “Our Lips Are Sealed” by the Go-Go’s because I listened to that song more times than I can count while getting in the mood to write. It puts a smile on my face, and I can play air guitar or drums to the beat. If that song was with me at the conception of this story, then it would be the appropriate song for the launch party.
