Ya’ll already know that I love when my author friends come to hang out. I feel as though my pal S.J. Maylee and I have a pretty close bond since we were working on our first books at the same time. She’s sweet, kind, and working her craft hard. I’m so very proud of her!
So, to talk about how she came to write the sexy, sassy stuff she does, without further ado….. My pal, S.J. Maylee! (Did I mention she’s also generously giving stuff away? Read on to find out how to WIN!)
I am so happy to be back here with Kitt. She always makes me feel comfortable to be myself. Thank you, Kitt. (((hugs)))
Awww! Thanks my friend. *hugs back* You know you’re always welcome here. Can’t wait to hear your story!
The other day I was talking with my husband’s drum student. She was telling me about her new band and how much fun she’s been having making music with them, a change from her last band. Lyrics and melody are now freely flowing for her. I could hear her love of music in her voice, in her conviction.
I’m quite familiar with this type of change. There was a time in my life when I struggled to find books I enjoyed reading. I knew it shouldn’t be that easy to put a book down. Then I found SEP, Nora and I become ravenous for reading. I couldn’t read enough. The day I found Cherise Sinclair was like a homecoming. She changed everything for me. Her books had all the romance I’d come to love so deeply, but there was also this edge, this level of risk and trust, that pushed the passion to a whole new level.
I can see now how that search for the right book sent me hurdling down a path that would lead me to my personal destiny. It’s the place where everything clicks. I’m in love with love and I don’t hide from that truth. I can’t and I don’t want to.
Almost two years ago, I started on a mission to find out something new about love and the passion we’re capable of setting free. My muse told me that love at first touch existed. The words started to flow freely. My new series, Club Blind, is about finding out what the heart can see when the eyes are blind. I write what I want to read. I love it and there’s no place I’d rather be.
Girl! I definitely feel ya. Cherise is a big reason I fell in love with the BDSM subgenre, too. Go figure we enjoy the same fabulous artists. 😉 Guess it’s time to share the new book, eh?
