1. What do you feel will most likely capture your reader’s attention regarding your book?
This book gets off to a boundary pushing start, playing with a reader’s potential interests. The sexually fueled introduction to the story’s characters will no doubt be an attention getter. Setting the pace for the rest of the book, the incestuous relationships and varying dynamics do play an interesting secondary role which will appeal to many people.
2. What other books would you compare to your own story?
Since this book follows the same characters in my previous title, ‘Daddy’s Desire’ I think that would be the best comparison. There’s a light BDSM feel to the story, while retaining an innocence to each character’s various kinks. Readers seemed to enjoy ‘Daddy’s Desire’ but the book can also be read by itself.
3. What inspired the title of your latest book?
‘Mother’s Passion’ is a play on the first title, while also highlighting the subject of this particular story. Since this book focuses on the mother and the passions she’s been brought up to have, the title felt appropriate. Another interesting way to look at the choice of title, I enjoyed the sensuality conveyed by the idea of a passionate relationship of the mother and son pair.
4. Taken as a whole, what moral, social, or political questions does your story discuss?
This book really focuses on the moral question surrounding sexual submission. Incest is always a social question, but very few readers will find books questioning the motivations of submissives and their Masters. My latest story really attempts to examine if such relationships are healthy, warranted, or even justified.
5. Artistically or literarily, were there any challenges creating your story’s dynamics?
This is the first time I’ve written a novel length trilogy. Artistically, this new process did create a few challenges. I wanted readers to be able to read each book by itself, so I had difficulty reestablishing the characters. In the end, I think the opening scene of the book does that nicely, while not taking away from the previous story. At the same time, this book has its own unique story-line readers of the previous book will enjoy.
6. How do you feel the cover highlights your story?
The seductive nature of this cover makes it a personal favorite. I really love the image, as I think it’s quite sexy. There’s also a bit of tension that doesn’t feel too overwhelming, which I felt was a nice highlight to the book’s plot. Overall, this cover really conveys sex and mystery at the same time. Readers who enjoy a more BDSM look to my covers will find there’s still a subtle hint of submission and dominance in this cover too.
7. Share with us an interesting fact or moment in your book.
One of the most interesting parts of this book has to do with the son, Joshua’s character. When he finds out he comes from an incestuous family, he has to make up his own mind on the subject. There’s a moment where he really struggles to comprehend what this could mean for him, and Joshua doubts continuing the family traditions. The choice he comes to, and how he gets there, I think is a highlight many readers will enjoy discovering.
8. What is your favorite part or scene in your book?
My favorite scene in this book happens to be the celebratory night out. The whole family decides to tease Colette, right there in a public restaurant. There’s always been something sexy about such scenes. Writing the moment was quite fun and I think many readers will enjoy the appeal of such an intimate yet playful scene. I’ve always found readers a bit curious about public sex, and yet this isn’t too outrageous of a scene. There’s an appeal in the family’s celebration for everyone, especially those who enjoy learning about new possibilities.
9. What appeals to you most about writing for this genre?
Incest is a genre I feel has a different kind of appeal for writers like myself. This is my first time writing a book heavy in the mother son dynamic of incest erotica. I have to say, I did really enjoy writing such subject matter. Writing in a genre that still allows me to explore different dynamics or different conflicts really appeals to me. I’ve always enjoyed writing taboo subjects, and that’s not going to change any time soon.
