Today my friend and fellow author, Fiona Archer is sitting in the hot seat. Fiona has her first book releasing this month. It's called Chloe's Double Draw and although I haven't had time to read the finished product yet, from the pre-published sections I've been privileged to see, if you like cowboy's and menage stories with a touch of BDSM then you'll love Fiona's book.
Let's hand it over to Fiona and see if we can make her squirm in the Hot Seat for a bit.
I’ve always had a love for reading and have wanted to write a romance since I was fifteen. After my 40th birthday, I decided it was time to live my dream. So one day I sat down and started to type.
Why do you write?
Have you ever had a day you wanted to quit and never write again?
Hell, yes! When you let the self-confidence thief takes over, writing then becomes a path full of boulder sized rocks you have to climb over. But you keep on typing away, and soon those boulders turn into pebbles and then flecks of dust.
If you had to give a thank-you speech at the Oscars, who would you thank and what would you say?
What are the three most important life lessons you’ve learned that might make life easier for others?
-An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
-An old friend who once saved your life.
-The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.
You can only fit one person in your car, who would you choose to offer a ride to?
I’d pull up and offer my seat and the passenger spare to the my friend and the old lady. Then…I’d huddle under an umbrella with my perfect partner. Just think of the luscious ways we could warm up back at my place afterwards!
My love of romance started back when I was twelve and my mum's stash of Mills and Boon novels proved too much of a temptation. At fifteen, I decided the life of a romance writer was for me. Some…ah…years later, I've clawed together enough gumption to make my dream a reality.
When not sitting in front of the computer, I can be found in the garden or enthralled watching a murder mystery DVD. I limit myself to reading other authors' work between writing my own stories. Books are my “shiny” distractions.
