AuthorChat with Blue Stour & Christa Lynn 2/3/14

“He pulls away after nibbling on my bottom lip, and gently pushes me to my back, lowering his toned body over mine. I suddenly don’t care about the muffin top and love handles that adorn my body. All I can think about is having this man on me. In me.                                                                                                                        excerpt  — Running from Destiny by Christa Lynn

If readers watch CSI, Criminal Minds or any other crime show, they may have wondered what happens to the prospective crime-scene detectives who choose not to hack it? In one writer’s case, she turned to the world of writing.

With childhood dreams of becoming a criminal profiler, the married mother opted for another career path, instead. After giving college a shot, Christa Lynn fell into marital bliss seventeen years ago, two years before giving birth to her 15-year-old son, a die-hard hockey player–as she put it, “There is still hockey in the south.”

“I never even imagined it nor thought of it,” Lynn answered when asked if she had ever given much thought to writing as a career choice. “One night I was lying in bed thinking about a really bad book I had tried to read and thought, ‘I can do this.’ So, the next day I started on my first book, which currently hides in the bowels of my laptop collecting dust.”

The mature adult/erotic romance writer admits she loves writing. Also, though, she admits it’s been quite a struggle at times.

“I think about jumping off (a bridge) every day,” the lifelong southerner joked.  “It’s a dog eat dog world out there and for a newbie like me, it is extremely hard to compete and get the exposure that the better-known authors get.”

While working a full-time job through the week, Lynn reserves her weekends for writing . . . when she’s not attending hockey games. Her first book, Running from Destiny, and its sequel, Accepting Destiny, are both available on amazon.com in the Destined Series.

Furthermore, the Stephen King fan has another work in progress. Thus far, Lynn is 30,000 words into it.

When readers are finished with one of her books, the weekend writer knows exactly what she wants them to feel. The more she kicks out, she hopes readers will look at her, essentially, as the little engine that could.

“I want readers to feel complete,” Christa pointed out about her erotic romances. “I want them to want to spread the word after the story left them satisfied.”

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.

AuthorChat with Blue and Mel Favreaux 1/19/14

HI! I’m Blue Stour. (pronounced Store) Mel Favreaux was kind enough to vist today. Without further adieu, here’s Mel:

Unlike a lot of authors, North Carolina-based writer Mel Favreaux isn’t looking to be the next Nora Roberts, yet. In fact, her goals are quite modest and admirable. In a recent interview, she told me how she wants to be viewed after her writing days are done.

“(I want to feel) that something I wrote made someone feel,” the navy-brat whose father was a navy retiree said. “To be able to evoke emotions from the written word is a very potent feeling. I’m still one of those authors that finds it hard to believe that someone wants to buy my books.”

At first, the multi-genre writer didn’t set out to become a computer-keyboard wizard. She hoped to use her love for animals to become a veterinarian, initially. Two years after she moved to Florida as an eleven-year old, however, the barely-a teenager penned her first novel, and the writing itch stuck.

After stepping away from her author platform for a few years, Favreaux has returned, full-steam ahead. Her contemporary fiction release, Valor of a Woman, is available at many eBook outlets. Walker’s Run, is also available; the paranormal romance is the first book in a series. The second book, Shadow Walker, will be available “very soon,” and the third installment, Dream Walker, is slated for release in “probably the next two months.” As of right now, there is no end in sight for the series.

With what appears to be books just popping onto the screen, one would think that the Virginia native would be writing 24/7. However, that’s far from true. With two younger children, nine and seven, occupying a lot of her time, she said she writes as often as she possible, but “it all depends on whether the creativity is flowing.”

Creativity is something that Mel ignored for years since beginning that first novel at age 13. Like many other authors, though, she became frustrated. Not knowing she was switching her career direction in life, she just felt that it was “pointless,” and she “wasn’t good enough.”

So, what did she do?

STOP!

“Sometimes, you just have to take the plunge,” she lamented.

Today, Mel has returned to the writing scene. Not only has Favreaux learned, but she is doing what she says anyone else who aspires to be a writer needs to do; she’s taking that plunge.

Favreaux, who “loves email,” can be reached at mel.favreaux@gmail.com. Also, she’s very accessible on Facebook and Twitter.
