Obsessed with order and symmetry, and a paralyzing fear of germs, Cedric Haughton-Disley has lived with isolation and loneliness as long as he can remember. Desperate to be normal, he makes some much-needed changes in his life. If he can commit to his treatment, he might very well be able to procure some quality of life… even if that’s all he can get, as finding love and having a relationship are only possible in Cedric’s wildest dreams. But when a chance encounter leaves Cedric wishing for more, he decides to take a leap of faith, and pursue the guy he wants.
Together the two men make an unlikely match. Cedric needs organization, and Kevin represents chaos. In order to stay together they both need to compromise, but will they be able to deal with Cedric’s issues and the potential disaster, or let it break them apart?
1.) What does your writing schedule look like? Do you have to plot or
do you write as it comes?
It’s a bit all over the place, in the sense that I actually don’t
have one. I’m the mother of two and have a full time job, so I
just squeeze in my writing time whenever possible and the muse
doesn’t make herself scarce. I’m a plotter, though. I usually know
exactly what I want to write, which allows me to be productive
when I write… for the most part J
2.) What is the easiest part of the writing process for you? How about
the most challenging?
Profiling the characters is easy and fun. I love getting to know the
guys I’ll live with for the next few months. The most challenging
part is writing sex scenes. It requires a lot of work on my part, as
there are emotions to convey and a plot to move forward while
keeping things hot and steamy when the guys get it on.
3.) How long does it take you to write a book? Do you write one book
at a time or do you have a few going at once?
I write one book at a time, and my stories are usually long, so it
takes me anywhere from five to eight months.
4.) Have you ever taken any classes to hone your skills?
No, I haven’t. Never thought I’d write professionally either, which is
why refer to myself as an accidental author.
5.) What advice would you give a new writer starting out?
To not pay attention to trends, forget about tropes that seem to be
more popular or profitable and write the story that’s in their heart.
6.) What inspired you to be a writer? Who is your biggest support
system? When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you
I have a friend who’s always wanted to be a published author and
a few years ago she asked me to write something with her to keep
her on track because she got easily distracted by other plots and
ideas, but I’m known for finishing everything I start, no matter
what. I told her I didn’t have it in me, but she convinced me. The
collaboration didn’t last long, but I loved the creative process, and a
few months later Six Degrees of Lust (my first contracted title) was
My family is my biggest support system. They don’t mind doing
their own thing while I write and understand my frustration when
things don’t go well. Then there are my few wonderful, extremely
encouraging friends J
When I was a little girl I wanted to be a lawyer. I couldn’t think of
7.) Which genre is your favorite to write? Is there a genre that you
would love to write but haven’t yet? Are there any that you would
stay away from?
My favorite genre is romantic suspense, but I’d love to write a
fantasy story some day. I love elves.
8.) What kinds of books will we find on your bookshelf?
Vampires. I’m a huge fan of the BDB series by J.R. Ward, the
Midnight Breeds by Lara Adrian and Kresley Cole’s Immortals After
Dark. You’ll also find contemporary romances, both heterosexual
and gay, and there will always be angst.
1.) What are your favorite TV shows? Which shows could you do
without ever watching?
Law enforcement shows such as Criminal Minds, Graceland, CSI and
NCIS are my favorite, followed by anything HGTV. I’m not crazy
about competition shows.
2.) What is your favorite time of day? Why?
Nighttime, definitely. It’s sultry… mysterious…
3.) If you could stock your cabinets with one junk food, which one
would you pick?
Tostitos and salsa.
4.) What is your favorite TV commercial? How about your least
I love the Progressive Insurance commercials with Flo! As for
the least favorite I’d have to say the one’s for the ready-to-eat
breakfast with the guy dressed up as the sun. Lord.
5.) If you had a free weekend to get away, would you prefer to go
camping, to a resort/spa or head for a secluded cabin to relax?
A secluded spa in the mountains.
