Where you do your best writing

In my office, in my house, when I’m all alone. I’m at my most creative in my own space.

Favourite thing in your writing space

My Mac. Hands down the best writing tool ever.

Best food and/or beverage to accompany a good read

A big mug of hot, strong, milky tea.

One thing you would never do in the name of research

LOL, I  write erotic romance. There’s a whole heap of stuff I wouldn’t do in the name of research. Suffice it to say, as far as research goes, the internet is a wonderful place.

How friends and family would describe you two days before a deadline

Hmm, they wouldn’t describe me at all. They’d be keeping very far away from me, out of sheer terror.

Kiss of the Highlander by Karen Marie MoningOne book you’d save in an emergency and three words to describe it

Karen Marie Moning’s Kiss of the Highlander. Feel good book.

Your life in a book—what would the title be? In which genre or category would it be shelved?

Striving for normal: A day in the life of another ordinary mother. Contemporary comedy.

One book you loved as a child

Enid Blyton’s The Treasure Hunters

Describe yourself as the heroine of a romance novel

When it came to women, he usually liked them tall, slim and blonde. Endless legs, a tight butt and pert, firm breasts didn’t hurt her chances either.

Jess possessed none of those attributes. Not a single one. But she was unique. He’d give her that.

Best advice for surviving the zombie apocalypse

Start stockpiling your chocolate supplies now. It’s the only thing that’ll get you through the disaster.

Favourite method of procrastination

Oooh, I’m a veritable expert at procrastination. I have it down to a fine art: Browse the net, tweet, update facebook, check emails, make tea, and then start the process all over again from the beginning. Repeat often.

The Mammoth Hunters by Jean M. AuelDo you kill fairies?

I’ve only ever done this once, while reading Jean M. Auel’s The Mammoth Hunters. I was so distraught Ayla had taken up with another man, I knew I couldn’t finish the book unless I was assured she and Jondalar got back together.

Full House (Three Of A Kind, Book 3)

Samhain | 9781609284244 (E) | Excerpt

Full House by Jess Dee (Three Of A Kind, Book 3)A full house beats a pair any day.

It’s been a long, lonely business trip for diamond dealer Max Ashberg. He’s missed his lover like crazy, and he’s come to the realization that he’s ready to take the next step: nominate himself to be Trev’s new housemate. Except when he gets to Trev’s place, there’s someone living in “his” room. A woman—with the face of an angel.

Six weeks shouldn’t make a huge difference in a man’s life, but in that time lawyer Trev Greenfield has realized two things: He wants much more than a standing Friday night “date” with Max. And he’s falling heart-over-head for his new housemate, potter Grace Miles.

Grace never meant to fall for Trev, but when a power failure turns their chemistry into live electricity, there’s no denying the spark. There’s also no denying the shock when Grace discovers a naked man in her new home.

With Grace poised to run and Max teetering between confusion and growing lust for the delicious possibilities, Trev has his hands full trying to hold the two loves of his life together…before it all slips through his fingers. Leaving them all with shattered hearts.

Warning: There’s a lot of sex in this book. I mean a lot! Hot sex. Sweaty sex. Gay sex. Straight sex. Ménage sex (M/M/F and M/F/M).  Oh, and romantic sex. Lots of romantic sex. Hot romantic sex. Sweaty romantic sex. Gay romantic sex… You getting the picture?

    Great interview, ladies! I love your romance heroine description, Jess. I’ll have to give it a go sometime LOL. I’d have to pick the Jack for the sexiest card. He is young, he’s hungry to get to the top, and the queen’s standing in his way. As far as I can see, the quickest way to the top is seduction…

  2. Jess Dee

    LOL, Anna, it’s not so easy to describe oneself as a romance heroine.

    Penis.

    Oh and to more substantial things, please accept my belated apology for not being quick enough to teach you how to use the coffee machines at the hotel one breakky morning, my brain wasn’t functioning at normal speed so before I could register anything all your cup got was hot water because you didn’t put in the coffee capsule :P 

    LOL at your heroine description and Macs are awesome.

  4. Kat (author)

    Um, Camille? What kind of deck are you using?!?! ROFL

  5. Camille

    LOL I should probably answer the question properly…hmmm I’ll go with the number 6 of hearts (though it doesn’t really matter which suit but I thought hearts would be appropriate here) because really, it’s got 6 & 9 on it no matter which way it gets turned ;)

  6. Cataluna6

    I’m going to have to go with the Jack as well, or the Jack of Diamonds to be specific – also known as the laughing boy and really there’s nothing more sexy than a man with a sense of humor.  Well that and a muscly back :)

  7. Jess Dee

    Camille, LOLOL, it was you who watched me make a complete idiot of myself with the coffee machine? I’m still blushing!
    Cataluna6…I also love a man with a sense of humor. Sexy as.
