Why did you write this book?
While I was writing Hurt Me, Heal Me (the first book in the Dante's Purgatory Series), BDSM club owner, Dante Caffarelli, began speaking to me. He was loud and he was persistent. He's a Dom, so he tends towards bossiness. He'd arrive at about 4:30-5:00 am and wake me up with fantastic bits of dialogue. And no matter how little sleep you've had, Dante turning up in your bedroom in the morning is not something to be ignored.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance. And within that broad genre, I love paranormal—vampires, demons or angels only. I'm not interested in things like wood sprites or shapeshifting centipedes. I also like reading erotic romance and historical romance. If someone gave me a story about a Vampire-demon hybrid Dom living in the 1800's, I'd be so happy. Put him a kilt, stick him on a horse and have him galloping about over the moors, and I'd be in heaven.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
That's a really hard one for me. There are so many characters I've come across who have made an impression on me. Because I can't decide, I might go with my first fictional love, Mr Rochester from Jane Eyre. Enigmatic, tortured and terribly flawed...need I continue?
What are you working on at the moment?
Right now, I'm working on Master Me, which is book three in the Dante's Purgatory series. The story is about Xavier—the biggest, baddest guy in the club—and Trixie—the diminutive, yet feisty sub, who's decided she'd rather be on the other end of the whip. Trixie likes to live on the edge. I'll give you one guess who she wants to dominate.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Firstly it will be Master Me. Following that, I plan to release the first book in my paranormal romance series. That is...unless any more Doms start busting into my bedroom at ungodly hours!

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Dante has been Erica's savior since she was a child, protecting her from others, wiping her tears, making her feel worthy. Until, as the years passed, she began to feel something new...and a girl's crush became a young woman's unyielding passion. Though she ran away to Paris after Dante unknowingly broke her heart, even distance couldn't quell Erica's desire. Because she knows Dante well, knows what he's capable of doing for a woman...and knows her submissive needs match Dante's deep dominance perfectly.
Dante's in trouble. For years he's kept his burning ache for his best friend's sister firmly in check. But now Erica's back in the States, more gorgeous than ever. Worse, she wants to learn about BDSM—and she's determined to have Dante as a teacher. He won't let her near the club he co-owns with her brother—Chris would kill him—but he'll "train" her at home. When he's done, Erica will want nothing to do with the lifestyle. And hopefully her crush on Dante will be diminished...for both their sakes.
But Erica proves to be far more resilient that he'd ever dreamed, and Dante's plan backfires in spectacular fashion, driving her straight into the clutches of someone far worse than another Dom. Someone dangerous, someone from his past...who's going to make Erica pay for Dante's sins.
