Why this book and why now?
I’ve been a reader my whole life, but I only recently came to queer fiction. It was a real awakening. I started with YA LGBTQ+ fiction and then moved into adult and steamy adult. It was an incredible moment to suddenly feel something for the characters in the books I was reading and see myself in the stories. I wanted to create that feeling for others and so my journey started moving into writing queer fiction.
What is a significant way your book has changed since either the first draft or the way you thought it would turn out when you first had the inspiration?
I started out knowing I wanted to write ‘steam’ but apparently, when that steam went onto the page, it turned into Spice with a capital S.
What TV show would your main character(s) most likely binge watch and why?
What 3 things would your main character want with them if they got stranded away from civilization, and why?
Katana swords because she’s a kick ass assassin and would use them to capture food or defend herself, Chance her YES/NO fate coin because she uses it to make trouble, and Quinn’s journal, so she could still speak to her even if only in writing.
Publishing a book is a huge accomplishment and it’s time to party! Choose a celebratory beverage for one of your main characters to toast the release of your new book.
Honestly, the blood of her enemies! Failing that probably red wine or maybe brandy.
