Hello and Welcome to this stop on Tamaria's tour! I was able to catch a quick interview from our busy author and this is what she had to say:
How old were you when you first realized you wanted to write?
I’ve always enjoyed writing, but it wasn’t until my 30’s that I really took it seriously.
Tell us a little bit about the book.
Naughty Little Bedtime Stories isn’t your typical book. It a book of 12 short erotic stories. I guess I thought adults needed a good bedtime story also.
What made you choose this genre? This is book is basically erotic romance. I wanted to write something sexy and fun!
Most authors have an unusual story or way that they come up with their ideas for books…Do you have one? My ideas usually hit me in the shower or when I’m driving.
What is the key element in your character creation? For me it’s creating someone I can connect with.
What was your biggest influence that steered you towards writing? My love of reading, and wanting to escape into my characters.
I have to ask, what are the hardest scenes for you to write? The steamy ones!
Are sex scenes difficult for you to word? Yes! They always take the longest to write.
Do you see yourself writing in another genre? Someday I would lie to attempt a Paranormal story.
Are any of your characters reflective of you? I think some of my other books the heroine has some of me in them.
What do you like to do when you're not writing? I love to read!
Who is your favorite book heroine? That’s hard to answer, there are many. I love a strong heroine.
Do you have any unusual habits that revolve around writing? No, not really. I guess I’m a boring author.
What is your favorite mystical creature? Vampires and Selkies (seal shifters)
What were some of your biggest challenges at the beginning of your career? Time. I’m a stay-at-home of two small girls.
How do you feel about reader comments? Sometimes, they can be very hurtful. I’ve developed a thick skin.
Do you have any advice for new authors? Don’t give up on your dreams, and stay true to yourself.
Where are your books available?
Amazon and Barnes & Noble
What can we expect from you in the future? I have a few books coming out this fall!

EXCERPT FROM Strawberries and Whipped Cream
We ate dinner, drank some wine, and talked about our week. Maybe tonight I would finally pop the question. After cleaning up, I refilled our glasses.
"Did you get something for dessert?" Emma asked.
I smiled. "Yes, I did. Why don't you go into the living room and make yourself comfortable while I get it ready."
"Okay. Are you sure you don't need help?"
After she left the kitchen, I gathered the bowl of strawberries and can whipped cream from the fridge. I walked in the room to find her on the couch, sipping her wine. I sat down next to her and placed the food on the coffee table.
"I love strawberries, but why the can of whipped cream?" she asked with a twinkle in her eyes.
"Close your eyes. No peeking," I whispered in her ear.
I took a strawberry and traced her bottom lip with it. She opened her mouth slightly, and I allowed her to take a small bite. A low moan escaped her lips, and my dick twitched in response. I began to feed her another piece of fruit. My cock was getting harder by the minute as I watched her lips wrap around the strawberries.
"I want to feed you one," she said as she opened her eyes.
"I have a better idea. Close your eyes," I said in a deep voice.
Emma sighed and closed her eyes. I picked up a strawberry and touched her bottom lip with it, and she opened her mouth to take it in. I leaned in and bit the other end, letting our lips meet and eliciting a faint squeal from her.
"Would you like some whipped cream?" I asked her as I grabbed the can and shook it.
"Yes," she whimpered.
I squirted some whipped cream on her bottom lip. She seductively licked them while looking at me lustfully. I groaned, shifted to adjust myself, and placed my lips on hers. She wrapped her arms around me and the kiss deepened. Our tongues rubbed against each other. She tasted like whipped cream. Pulling away, I placed kisses down her neck and made my way to her chest. I lifted her shirt over her head. She was wearing a pink lace bra.
"Beautiful," I whispered as I reached around her and unhooked her bra. I slid the straps off her arms, placing more kisses on her neck. "Lay back," I told her as I took my shirt off.
I unbuttoned her jeans and slowly unzipped them. She lifted herself up as I slid them down her amazing legs and threw them on the floor. She was a sight to behold in just a pair of pink boy shorts.
"Do you trust me?" I asked.
EXCERPT FROM Instant Attraction
EXCERPT FROM Instant Attraction
We walked out of the restaurant and down the hall into the main lobby of the hotel, my eyes scanning for any photographers. I really didn't want my face all over the tabloids tomorrow.
"I had a great time meeting you today. So, what now?" Slade asked as he looked deep into my eyes.
"I don't know," I whispered. I didn't want the afternoon to end.
"I don't want to leave you just yet, Jewel," he whispered in a sexy tone.
I bit my bottom lip and started to fidget. "Then don't." I took a deep breath, trying to figure out everything that was racing through my head. "Would you like to come to my suite for a drink, maybe?" I couldn't believe I'd just asked him that, but I knew what I wanted, and at the moment it was him.
"I thought you'd never ask."
We stepped in the elevator and the doors closed. We were alone. Before I could process what I was doing I was kissing him. The simple kiss set all the nerves in my body on fire. The elevator stopped and I pulled away as the doors opened.
"This is my floor," I said breathlessly.
We walked into the hallway in silence. The tension between us was so strong. We reached my suite and I swiped my card to open the door. I could feel his gaze on me, it was making me nervous and turning me on at the same time. My stomach was in knots as I walked in, but not the bad kind of knots, the I-want-to-jump-him kind of knots. He was making me crazy. I truly just wanted to go with what I was feeling. I was so attracted to him. As soon as the door shut Slade pushed me against the wall and started kissing me.
"Jewel, you are so alluring," he said as he kissed my neck.
"Slade," I moaned. I could feel how hard he was as he pressed harder into me.
"I want you," he said as his hand grazed my breast. "Do you want me?"
"Yes!" My heart was pounding in my chest as I led him to the bed. His urgent lips were on mine. He unzipped my sundress and it fell to the floor, leaving me in only a black lace bra and thong.
"So sexy," he whispered in my ear as he kissed my neck.
