Laurell K Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, JK Rowling, Stefanie Meyer.
Harry Pottter, The Anita Blake Series and Merry Gentry Series by Laurell, any that are a series I hate to stop at the end of a book, I always want more.
The book that changed my life
It would have to be Laurell K Hamilton's books as they inspired me to try my hand at erotic writing.
What are you currently reading
Currently reading the True Blood series (book 3) by Charlaine Harris, love the show on HBO too.
I'm inspired by...
Strong, sensual women who can do it all.
I started writing because...
I was looking for more in my life, at first it was an escape now it is therapy.
Aside from writing, what occupies your time
My two beautiful daughters, they are my life. And lots of long distance phone calls to the new man in my life who I met on this site.
How did you get in to writing erotica?
At first I was looking online to find more books with erotic plots to them and I found Lushstories and started to read them. After a while I said why not?
What's your favourite writing genre and why
Well I think it's pretty obvious it's incest. Mostly because of the forbidden aspect but in part because these are people you've known your whole life and you are usually comfortable with them and there may be a sense of safety behind the danger of being caught.
Where do you get your creative juice/story ideas from?
Some are from true experiences and long time fantasies. My Shea story idea came from 4 gentleman I met through PM here on Lush, though only one is still in my life.
What are your turn-ons?
Intimacy, not sex neccesarily, but the little touches and looks that let you know you are wanted and desired.
What are your turn-offs?
Self absorbed, mean people.
Music I frequently listen to
I like it all, but I love 70's rock the most.
My favourite work of art is
The statue of David.
Harry Potter, Narnia, Moonstruck.
Which websites do you regularly visit
Lushstories and the Weather Channel, I hate the computer except for writing and reading stories and email.
What would be a perfect weekend for you
Being with the man I love and my kids and just enjoying our time together, whether it be a drive through the country side or going out to a movie, I'm easy that way.
Ideal holiday destination
I will go to Greece before I die, but I would also like to see England and Ireland as well.
At home I cook
As little as possible. Do like to bake though.
The hardest thing I've ever done was
Bury my Father some 16 years ago, I still miss him.
Most surprising thing people could find out about you
That I write erotica.
I don't like talking about...
Not much of anything, I love to talk!
What I find amusing is
Know-it-all people who insist they are right about something and then I prove them wrong.
What I don't find amusing is
Being told what I will do.
If I wasn't me I'd like to be
Wow that's a hard one, probably JK Rowling so I could get paid to do what I love, write.
I often wonder...
What my future will hold and if my children will grow up happy and healthy.
Thanks MerryAnita for you time. We thoroughly recommend you have a read of MerryAnita's work.
