This weeks Saturday Seduction, is an interview with my very good friend, Louisa Bacio! She’s perfect for a Saturday Seduction stopover, so take a look at her interview. Enjoy a special Wednesday Walkabout.
Ciao sweetie! *smooches cheek*
Alright, now that I’m thoroughly blushing, I’m happy to introduce Louisa Bacio to everyone. Right now, she’s very much looking forward to some holiday celebrations, and spending some downtime with her family.
In addition to being a writer of contemporary and paranormal erotic romance, she’s also a college professor and mom of two. Right now, she’s excited about a new release, coming out on Friday, Winter Solstice Ménage. It’s part of the Black Hills Wolves sub-series, Winter Solstice Run. Five books that give more than a glimpse at how the Pack spends the holidays.
Winter Solstice Ménage tells Sugar’s story. She comes to the Pack to see her brother Yas, and meets up with hot twins – who she didn’t know were siblings. Whoops!
CC: What gets you in the mood to write?
LB: A sexy song, a sexy man or woman, a glass of wine … voices in my head that want to have their stories shared. As a writer, I sometimes feel like a conduit to these characters who want life.
CC: Where do you keep your inspiration?
LB: Huddled somewhere amongst my POP Superhero figurines, gurgling fish tanks, mini-fridge, and goodies galore! Sometimes I wish there was a special cookie jar I could open and have the words pour out, and sometimes I wish I could seal it tight and make the conflicting voices stop.
In any case, I cherish this gift of the written word.
CC: If you could meet one author to have dinner with, living or dead, who would it be?
LB: My fallback answer to the question probably remains the same: Stephen King. He’s been a major influence for a long time, and my master’s thesis in English was based on his Dark Tower series.
Now, can I also have the wish not to get locked up and tongue-tied if I ever got the chance?
CC: Is there something unusual that has influenced your work?
LB: Sometimes I feel like I’m stuck in the Disney syndrome. My mother died when I was 14, and many of my characters are without parental support. If I think about it too much, I’m probably working through issues of not having that guidance. Since I’m more conscious of it, I think I do it less.
CC: Have you written characters that are someone you know?
LB: Oh, what a question. They are all based on people I know! Vampires, shifters and I hang all the time! (Will that sell more books? LOL.) Seriously, not really. Subconsciously, maybe I take a hint of this person and a tidbit from another, but not anyone on purpose. My first full-length novel Sex University: Physical Education just re-released. Next year, I’m excited for book 3 in that series, The Master Class, which just might feature some conscious elements of a person I’d never admit to!
