Here’s an author interview with Eva Lefoy. Take it away, Eva…
- How did you start writing erotica?
I just kind of fell into it. I blame it on the fact that when I was quite young, I found my father’s secret stash of erotica behind the bed’s headboard. I’ll always remember the title: Helga’s Thighs. I think I knew then I wanted to be a writer!
- What erotic authors do you enjoy reading?
I like Kate Pearce’s work a lot. She’s a friendly ex-pat living in California.
- Where do you draw your inspiration from?
From all around. Movies. Books. Images. Artwork. Songs. My book Sweet Cravings http://amzn.to/13Hp3gc from Decadent Publishing came about because of a Justin Timerlake and Timbaland song, Carry Out. If you see that video and look at the whipped cream, it’s hard not to think erotically! It’s pretty blatant that the video’s about sex – if you don’t believe me, give it a look: http://youtu.be/NRdHsuuXxfk
- Do you have any unusual writing rituals?
- Where’s your favourite place to write?
I normally write perched on the couch in the living room. Or at work, if I can get away with it. Or sometimes at Starbucks or another coffee shop.
- Do your nearest and dearest know what you do, and if so, what was their reaction when they found out?
My husband won’t read it. My sister isn’t on the internet (gasp!) and my parents though they are on the internet, don’t know how to read an ebook. I’m pretty safe here.
- What was your ideal career when you were a child?
Either Superwoman or a dentist. I’m neither, of course. I’m in commercial insurance. Ever heard of Lloyd’s of London?
- How do you get yourself in the mood to write?
A bit of cheap wine. Reading something good. Watching a good film. Or maybe hiking. I do a lot of talking out storylines and brainstorming while hiking. I’m usually able to find a way to resolve whatever problem I’m having.
- What’s the best writing tip you’ve ever been given?
Be prepared to write a lot of crap. Really. It’s not all good stuff that comes out. You’ve got to edit or forget it.
- What’s your favourite genre within erotica and why?
I’m not sure. I tend to like contemporary but I also love a HOT historical. Paranormals can also be quite tasty.
- What are you working on at the moment?
I’m working on a Science Fiction Romance and a M/M cowboy story. After that, it’s back to a jungle shapeshifter and also a sex performer. Woot!
