MP-What’s your favorite fairytale of all time?
DL-The Princess Bride is the best told fairytale/love story ever written!
MP-Pick your three favorite characters. Who would you like to Marry? Spank? Or Hump?
From my books, my heroes: Toto, Carl, and Hephaestus.
MP-What’s the most original character you feel you’ve written?
DL-Hephaestus. I felt so much with him, when writing. When he was angry, I was angry. My heart broke when his did. I truly believed in everything that I wrote for him.
MP-Are there any fairytales you wouldn’t touch?
DL-I've never been a fan of Peter Pan for some reason. I don't think some little flying woman sprinkling stuff on me so I can fly is too odd.
MP-Since you home school your children how are you able to balance your writing and home life?
DL-I gave up on sleep! That's only part of it really, but mostly, I use my mornings for teaching and by afternoon, we're done. The kids go off to do what they want, the baby watches Disney channel and I try to get some promotions, blogging, and writing done. It doesn't always work out the way I want because my muse is never on the same page, but when that happens, I just stay up a little later waiting for the baby to go to sleep.
An avid reader since I was a child, I never found a book I disliked. Mostly, you could find me lost in Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, or Ernest Hemingway, and my most favorite, Ancient Greek literature. Taking my love of books, I started writing poetry, short stories, and even helped with screen writes for my drama club.
By the time I was in my teens, my older sister introduced me to my first romance novel, The Hawk and the Dove by Virginia Henley. The moment I fell into the world of love, I was hooked, and my addiction for more grew until I found myself delving deeper into the erotic.
After being convinced that I had the skills to try my hand at writing, I went to work on my first story Down the Yellow Brick Road: Finding Home. And since being published, I've not looked back.
Now, as a busy mom of three, that homeschools, drives to activities, and manages to find time to just cuddle with my husband of ten years, I have to say, I love being naughty when I get the chance. It's freeing and I wouldn't want it any other way!
When love and war makes a little wager, what could possibly go wrong?
I am Hephaestus. God of inventions, blacksmiths, and volcanoes. Sounds like I'm awesome right? Well, I'm not. In fact, I'm the loser of Olympus and a new bachelor to boot. Living the single life is great until a decade passed. Honestly if my divorce from the Goddess of Love wasn't bad enough, I am still being rejected by the other women of my home.
Because of an incessant need to make me a pawn in his game, my brother, Ares convinces Eros to make a little bet. A wager that puts my lack of love life to the test. Sent to Earth, I'm skeptical, when suddenly I lose myself in the sensual scent and beauty of the full bodied Vanessa. She is my everything, my perfection.
Sadly, from a single caress upon her silky flesh, I sent our lives into a downward spiral of hell. To save her, I must get beyond my demons of the past. And to save me, she will have to decide if I'm worth giving up everything for.
