Q. What was your childhood ambition?

There were lots! But I always seemed to come back to writing every now and again.

I want to complete and sell a short story anthology, then onto a novel! Continue reading

Author interview with Justine Elyot

Q. What was your childhood ambition?

I had way too many of these, but writing was one of them. I’m still working on the operatic soprano career and mansion full of liveried servants.

Q. What ambitions do you still have?

All of the above ;). Continue reading

Author interview with Sommer Marsden


Author interview with Sommer Marsden

Q. What was your childhood ambition?

Would it be boring to say I wanted to be a writer? Too bad. That’s the answer. I wanted to be a writer.

Q. What was your first job?

My first real job that wasn’t neighborhood babysitting was delivering papers with my mother. I delivered a section of the route on week night evenings on foot with a newspaper bag and then on weekends we got up at three and did the whole route together with my sister. It was my first pay check job. She fired me. But only for two days, she let me back in the van and gave me my job back when I said I was sorry for shooting off my big mouth. It is no fun to deliver papers in a little red wagon. Trust me. Continue reading

Author Interview with Elizabeth Coldwell


Interview with Elizabeth Coldwell

What was your childhood ambition?

I wanted to be an archaeologist – until I realised it meant digging up dead bodies.

What ambitions do you still have?

Loads – to work on a couple of novel ideas I currently have on the back burner, to write a story which people will come to consider as a classic of the genre, to branch out into comedy writing by collaborating with a friend on a  project we’ve been talking about for a while. I could go on… Continue reading

Author Interview with James Hornby


Author Interview with James Hornby contributor to Spirit Lovers

Q. What was your childhood ambition?

My childhood ambitions varied from being the saviour of the world to being a world famous physicist. Needless to say my credentials prohibited me from either of these rolls.

Q. What ambitions do you still have?

Current ambitions are a little more bland. I want a wooden house next to the sea with a grand piano in the master bedroom and a huge kitchen in the other room. I’d like to achieve this mainly through my writing work but  I am also still holding out for that Eureka moment. Continue reading

Author Interview with Les Hansom


An interview with Les Hansom – author of Nothing Without a Woman

Q. What was your first job?

I was a mechanic working on trucks and vans.  This is when I used to get my hands physically dirty.

Q. What are the most important components that go into making good erotic fiction?

In my opinion (and this will be questioned by many) good erotica needs to be pretty real, and not full of flowery, nonsensical rubbish like the type you’d find in the pages of D. H. Lawrence’s work.  This was all right in late 19th, early 20th century but it has no place now.  Nor should erotica be something out of a James Bond movie.  I enjoy the humour and reality of sex. Continue reading

Author Interview with Maxim Jakubowski


Maxim Jakubowski – author and editor.

Q. What was your childhood ambition?

To win the Tour de France on my bike, and once I realised that would never happen, to be a writer

Q. How did you end up being an erotic writer?

It just happened gradually. I wrote and published science fiction and fantasy but readers felt there was too much sex, ditto fro crime and mystery so things just evolved as I realised it was part and parcel of my writing make-up. I don’t consider myself purely an erotic writer, but eroticism is always part of what I write Continue reading
