Author interview with Mark Farley

Q. What was your childhood ambition?

To save the world.

Q. What ambitions do you still have?

To save the world.

Paper round. Sack full of Sunday papers and fighting through the snow on a Raliegh Banana.

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

Two words: Emily Dubberley.

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

Assuming I make ‘good’ erotic fiction’ (which is not for me to judge), good dialogue and filthy sex. Bit of literary prowess too. Or at least that is what I try.

Q. If you could have any celebrity pictured carrying one of your books who would you choose and why?

Barack Obama. He would never, but he sells books.

Q. What does your working day typically consist of?

Sucking men off.

Q. And what aspects of your job do you enjoy the most?

Sucking men off.

Q. How do people who don’t know you react when you tell them you’re an erotic author?

They either want to shout at me or fuck me.

Q. How do you like to relax when you’re not at work?

Orgies and barefoot field skipping in the morning dew.

Q. What makes you laugh?

Dicks jokes and people falling over. And George Bush.

Q. What makes you cross?

Ignorance and narrow minds. Injustice and Cheryl Cole. And Coldplay.

Q. What subject do you know more about than anyone else?

Courtney Love

Q. What’s the best present you’ve ever been given?

My wife gave me an ipod nano inscribed with the words, ‘When words fail, music speaks’ -Hans Christian Andersen

Q. IPhone or Blackberry? Or neither?

Neither. Nokia E71, baby.

Q. What do you think is your best attribute?

Apart from my 14 inch cock, my modesty.

Q. What three words would your friends use to describe you.

Dirty. Fucking. Bastard.

Q. What’s the best thing that has happened to you in the last 12 months?

I got married to the love of my life. Then went to South Africa where I was feet away from humping lions and ravenous leopards. I also saw Nelson Mandela’s cell.

Q. Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us?

For one night, I was the drummer in Bucks Fizz.

Q. What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

Avoid yellow snow cones.
