Breathless Monday: Mia Epsilon and When You Believe

1. How did you start writing erotic romance?
I've always wanted to write romance. The erotic came after I learned the difference in sex and making love.

2. Plotter or pantster?
Completely pantser, fly by the seat of.

3. What are three things you have on your writing desk?
A replica of the journal The Doctor gave to River Song, a candle that smells heavenly of Mint Mocha Bark, and a stuffed bunny, the first present my husband ever gave me.

4. Favorite food?

5. Tell us a little about your new release. What character in the book really spoke to you?
When You Believe is the story of two very stubborn people who aren't afraid to fall in love but they are terrified of being and staying in love. They've a rocky road ahead to realizing love with the correct person doesn't mean 'giving up' anything. Oh, and all these odd things are happening to townspeople all around one, some good, some not so good. Plus this odd mysterious man has appeared in town. So how do all these things tie to together?
The character who spoke most to me is Daniel. He's afraid his past hasn't made him quite good enough for a wonderful bright future and almost loses everything he loves trying to prove himself 'worthy'.

6. I write because ____...
it's the only way to make the characters inside my head hush.

7. What is your favorite type of character to write about?
The ones who learn and grow from the people and events they experience in life are my favorites. This is something every one of us should do, learn and grow from what we experience in life and especially from the people we meet.

8. What is the sexiest scene you ever wrote?
In book 4 of the Weddings by C and C series, the heroine sees the hero baking, or trying to bake and making a complete mess of it. Something about it makes her decide she has to have him right then and right now. So she seduces him against the glass French doors, in full view of the neighbors.

9. What advice would you give new authors in the erotica/romance field?
Write the story of your heart and don't conform to what's popular or what sells. Only the story of your heart will be the one others want to read.

10. What is next on your writerly horizon?
Another book in the 'Weddings by C and C' series. I can't wait to see where we go next!

Monica has deep roots in the small town of Abbeville and manages the local coffee shop, which serves as the hub of town news. Deeply in love with Daniel, she still can't help but notice the gorgeous stranger, Micheal, who seemingly appears out of nowhere. When Dan begins to pull away from her, what's a girl to do? Tempted to sit home and cry, Monica is determined to push through the uncertainty. Does that mean exploring new options?
Daniel carries secrets he can't share with anyone, even Monica. He's a man with no past and no relatives, so he doesn't believe he deserves a bright future. Pulling away from Monica, his love and the closest thing he has to a family, he believes is the only way she can truly find happiness. But when tragedy strikes Abbeville will the man with no roots become its savior? Or will he discover Micheal's true reason for appearing among them?

Book excerpt:
"Am I interrupting something?" Dan came in the door and stood just inside, his expression confused. "Is everything okay?"
"No. Amber is convinced Michael is some assassin here to kill someone for Jamie Manning who's part of the Irish mafia." She pointed at Dan as he burst into laughter and glared at Amber. "There. See how ridiculous you're being?"
"Oh, that's too funny. Adam and Emily would get such a kick out of that. I bet Chief Owens would, too." Dan bent over as he continued to laugh. "Come on that's too silly to be real."
"Well, okay, so maybe it is." Amber conceded with a hard note in her tone. "But you have to admit the guy is weird and freaky things happen around him."
Dan straightened and walked over to put an arm around Monica's shoulders. "He is, I agree. But he's no killer. He grabbed the Marley kid out of the street a few weeks back. And Monica told me how he saved Anna from falling right before she gave birth to the twins. No assassin does nice things like that."

"So what's his last name? And where is he staying?" Amber demanded. "I'm going to find out before something really bad happens. Then you two will have to eat your words." She stomped off to the back room, shoulders and spine stiff straight.
