AuthorChat with Blue Stour & Danielle Taylor

Growing up, Danielle Taylor wanted to travel to many places. Mostly, the self-labeled shy-one wanted to be out and be free.

Three countries later, she’s experienced a lot of culture. Heck, she even spent a a month in Ibiza–which is located in Spain’s Balearic Islands for the non-Jeopordy readers. Now, only one thing can be said about her childhood goal.

Check!

Having lived in various spots on the continent, Taylor is currently expecting her third child with her very outgoing, South African husband. Online, though, she’s as interactive as M is. In fact, in front of a screen she’s not forced into conversation. That’s something her husband, “the night to my day,” has no trouble doing.

“Where I’m mostly conservative, he’s outspoken and will strike up a conversation with just about anyone, while I hide in the corner,” Taylor said. “Online, no one can see me hyperventilating or doing a weird silent seal clapping laugh.”

Going by her outgoing writing style, the rugby fan is exaggerating a bit. Obviously, the British lass has no trouble expressing herself in books. Falling for You came out today and Captive at Christmas was released last month.  Also, she’s in the final editing stage of a novel, Letting Go. The book will be the first in her Adventures, Inc. Series. Taylor is extremely excited about that novel because it combines her passions: South Africans, travel, and romance.

Furthermore, the writer of romance in all genres plans to author a Young Adult work. Watch for the work under her alter ego, Ellie Carstens.

But wait; there’s more. Apparently, the expectant mother has been writing every chance she has had since she first picked up a pen. Unfortunately, lately, those times have been spread thin.

It was recently discussed on AuthorChat how many different reasons there are, in fact, for a writer to become an author. Taylor simply says that it was a natural process for her.

“I picked up a pen and paper one day,” the oft-traveled writer said about her writing journey which she hopes will never end, “and the rest is history.”

When asked how she wanted to be remembered as an author, Taylor responded with “No idea.” However, the well-traveled writer went on to add some perfect information readers need to hear.

“ I suppose I’d like to think they open their minds to what is out there in the rest of the world. It’s all well and good to sit back in your own country and be patriotic and all. It’s so exciting to be learning about new places and people, though. I want them to think, ‘Huh? I didn’t know that about Mongolia,’ or ‘That’s pretty cool about Norway,’ or ‘South Africa is beautiful.’ Not just places but people, too. That man who walked past you this morning, well, his daughter might be lying in a hospital bed with leukemia and you scowled at him because he accidentally stepped on your foot. Or, that woman who brushed past you on the subway–the one you flipped off–might be rushing to get to her second job which she needs to keep her house and two kids since her husband left.”

In addition to passionately expressing that she would never tire of being a writer, Taylor reiterated that she would always write, ”even if I get nowhere with it; I love it.”

She also offered some heartfelt advice for struggling authors about her “release.”

“Keep at it. Read and write and read and write. Find your style. It doesn’t have to be perfect, and you might find that’s your thing.”

AuthorChat with Blue Stour and Wendy Sexton 1/21/14

Apples are overrated, according to erotica writer Wendy Sexton. She says it’s not an apple each day that keeps the doctor away. Instead . . .

Sexton grew up in California–Boys in the Hood, California, that is; that’s Compton for the movie challenged. Long associated with basketball, if any sport, Sexton’s childhood saw other athletic dreams not writing aspirations.

“I wanted to be the first woman to play baseball,” she boldly pointed out. “I even went to pitching school for fast pitch softball; it was the sh*t.”

Thrown into motherhood at just fourteen, though, Wendy was forced to give up her dream of pitching for the Dodgers. A few years later—talk about fate–the long-time Left Coast resident met her future husband, Kevin, at jury duty, of all places. Then, with two bouncing boys, Brandon and Bradley, they moved to Arizona.

If the chance-meeting of her husband was odd, that’s nothing compared to how she became a writer. It proves that writing breaks can come anywhere.

“I was on a flight to Boston for work. The guy sitting next to me was a literary agent, and he told me to write ‘your story,’” Wendy reflected. “It got too emotional, and brought back some pain and anguish. I put it on hold and started writing my fiction. I love writing.”

Writing “her fiction” at least eight hours each day is showing and growing. Two-of-three books in her Quest Series are available. Raven’s Quest and Skyclad’s Quest can be found on Amazon.com. The trilogy’s final installment, Luna’s Quest, will be released in February, 2014.  Finally, Sexton added that she has “about 5 more books” in the works.

Even though she continuously writes with passion, writing is a grueling journey, she admits. People fail to understand just how draining of a process it is. Like most authors, there are times when Wendy is ready to just say, Bag it ALL!!!

“Everyday…… Everyday,” Sexton expressed how often she becomes frustrated. “Then there is that moment that the hair stands up on the back of my neck when I get the great idea. Then, I can’t stop thinking about the story. That is what keeps me going and to prove to myself that I can do this.”

Her passion for and pursuit of perfect erotica can be expressed best by how she wants to be remembered as a writer, both now and later.

“You made me j*ck off in the shower; your book was so f*cking hot,” Wendy proudly remembered what-she-calls her best compliment, ever. “I don’t want this to be over; I want to be writing dirty books until I die. Sex is amazing. I have to have an orgasm daily just to keep my heart beating.”

. . .  the earlier oft-used reference to an apple is completely wrong; it isn’t an apple a day. As she expresses, An orgasm a day keeps the doctor away.
