Here’s an author interview with Gretchen Bassier. Take it away, Gretchen…
As a line, it looks innocuous.
As a reality, it’s about as innocuous as a bear pit.
‘A wide female readership.’
So – something that will appeal to lots of different women? Or something that will appeal to some women, and hope that the whole rest of womankind is covered by the other authors?
Mistress of the Air is a comic, erotic adventure. My incorrigible Edwardian dominatrix, Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester, travels around Europe in her airship ‘The Corseted Domme’ causing mayhem.
A comic element in the story is the use of funny or suggestive names. The three Russian anarchists, Sophia Testlikova, Dimitri Bollokov and Peter Krapotkin, who feature in one episode, being a good example.
One character’s name was inspired by a British TV programme, ‘Not The Nine O’Clock News’. This was a political satire programme broadcast between 1979 and 1982. It featured a young Rowan Atkinson, later to become famous for Mr Bean and the Black Adder series. The programme always featured a song, usually a parody of a current hit.

Today I’d like to talk about connecting on a human level. When my husband and I were in Dubrovnik last Christmas on holiday, we were stunned at the number of people walking down the streets of the city, aptly named the Jewel of the Adriatic, totally oblivious to its sparkle – and it was glorious weather. Their reason for not seeing the beautiful city around them? Their attention was glued to their iPhones. Don’t get me wrong here. I love my iPhone, and I love instantly being able to share the experience of being in fabulous places with all my social media friends. But sometimes the sharing can wait; sometimes just experiencing the moment is far more important.
