MP-Since you’ve twisted Little Red and brought her into the age of consent, what’s your favorite fairytale and why?
DD-Cinderella – the romantic concept of the poor little girl finding her Prince Charming so appeals to the romantic in me and goes with the story line of Black Dorn.
MP-What’s your favorite part of being an erotica writer?
DD-I get to write what other people giggle at. When I tell people I'm an erotic romance writer – they get all flustered and don't know what to say. But their body language is screaming what they are thinking. Most people try and be cool with it, but I can tell it's an uncomfortable moment.
MP-What universal themes run through your books?
DD-I've noticed that water is a recurring theme – Derek and Arianne make love in the Caribbean, Sexy Red Hood meets her woodsman and wolf on a cruise ship, Branwyn and Malack make loves by a stream – probably something very Freudian there.I guess the type of universal theme you mean is – love conquers all. I've written 2 contemporaries, one historical and am working on a fantasy and that's seems to be the main theme running through all of them.
MP-When you write historical, how much research do you find yourself doing?
DD-I did a decent amount. In one scene, at a banquet, they taste chocolate for the first time and I had to make sure that was historically possible. I also checked speech patterns – I was terrible at contractions. So I checked to see if people in the 1400s used them – they did – so I put them in. I had to check if they had bathtubs. So many little things.
MP-Pick your three favorite characters; who would you marry, dump or date?
DD-In Black Dorn – I'm marry Gon-dra Malack. (Gon-dra means Prince.) He's passionate and caring and has a big sword. *wink wink*I'd date Duncan – he's loyal and true.I'd dump Timous – he's a bitter angry little man.
