Thank you for having me at your place today, Rachel. I enjoyed your excellent questions
1. What do you wish men understood about women?
Two things—first, it’s okay for a woman to cry if she wants to, it doesn’t mean she’s weak—two, as competitive as most men are it seems they would do whatever it takes to figure out how to sexually please a woman.
2. Do you only work on one book at a time?
I’m in the process of finishing a number of books I’ve started, and I’m going to focus on one book at a time. But if those story-stars give me any grief I’m moving on to the next book in line, and then they’ll be getting my grief…so, I’ll go back to them when I’m good and ready;)
3. Who is your favorite fictional couple?
My first favorite fictional couple came from an old classic movie – An Affair to Remember with Cary Grant and Debra Kerr…it was the ultimate sacrifice for love—the ending of that movie melted my heart. It instilled those characters in my heart and mind for lifeJ
4. Do you have a favorite quote that sums up how you feel about life?
It’s All Good;) I use that one on my family all the time to remind them every moment matters, even the ones full of struggle, because with conflict comes change, and from change comes growth (evolving;)…and they use it right back to remind me tooJ
5. Do you set daily writing goals? Word count? Number of chapters? Do you get a chance to write every day?
I’ve been going through what I just described in the previous question—at the moment I’m closing some doors so I can concentrate on one door…writing. I have not been writing, and I just made a writing pact with a good author friend—we’ll both be writing every day for at least ½ hour and if grows to more time (and it should as I’m able to close certain doors), that’d be a big YAY! By shutting myself off to write…well, I better be writing circles around many hours of each day. It will be hours, not word count or chapters.
6. What do you like better, Twitter or Facebook? Why?
I love Twitter…FB keeps changing as has Google, and I just don’t have the time to groom my accounts – even though I visit them both every day, I don’t hang out. With Twitter…it can snag me up for some time if I don’t stay on top of it, but I love the feel of camaraderie—the re-tweets—knowing someone is helping me spread whatever I happen to be promoting—and I love helping them also. I feel such gratitude there—it’s like an unsaid pact, we all help each other. I feel connected ;)
7. What are you working on now?
My third book in the LIIA series, Smoke ‘n’ Bliss. Not sure if this will be the last book in this series or not…it’s pretty erotic and I’m not sure about all those sexually aroused beings. It wears me down writing all their hot scenes. It might be time to set them free ;)
Also have a couple short stories I’m working on and a Young Adult I’m writing under another name.

So far, Smoke didn’t share Lindsey with other males, but she was aware of the orgies inside the central building. She heard a few women talk of them. Some even liked them, being surrounded by hard-bodied men hung like rocket launchers. Those women went at it without the use of the stimulation drug Smoke used on everyone else.
She was used to the little needle pricks and welcomed them. It made acting the part with Smoke so much easier, believing in her heart Trevor made love to her, but guarding that fact from Smoke by holding Trevor’s name in the secret place, locked safely away.
Lindsey understood some of the sexual attraction. She had that once, but she couldn’t go there in her mind. Smoke searched her thoughts almost daily and always found if she’d tapped into any memory nuggets of people she loved. He possessed psychic abilities others didn’t. Already, the thoughts of Trevor that had emerged she’d need to bury before Smoke returned.
If an orgy ensued during their pack meeting, Smoke would be preoccupied for a good while. She reached her arm underneath the mattress, where a few weeks ago she saw Smoke slide his journal. Lindsey had fallen asleep with her back to the fireplace. A crack of thunder wakened her in time to witness Smoke closing a journal and placing it beneath the mattress they shared.
Lindsey touched its leather cover, wrapped her fingers around it, and hauled it out.
