Intrigued? We don’t blame you. Make sure to check them out and her other released works as well. For now though, let’s get to the interview and learn some more about Louisa and her books.
LITERAL ADDICTION/Book Monster Reviews: Hi Louisa! We’re happy to have you here today and hope that we can introduce some new readers to your work.
LOUISA: So very excited to be here. I’ve been a fan of Literal Addiction for a while, and the authors that you feature. Thank you for having me.
LITERAL ADDICTION/Book Monster Reviews: We always start out by learning more about our guest authors.
Q1): What are 3 things about yourself that we couldn’t find out easily on the Internet?
LOUISA: 1) I like to cook almost as much as I like to write; 2) I cry during sappy TV commercials; 3) I’m afraid of what lurks in the dark.
Q2): What are 2 things that always make you smile, and 2 things that never fail to piss you off?
LOUISA: What makes me smile? When the writing is going really well, and hearing my daughters laugh. That’s miraculous. As they get older, they get more self-conscious. Piss me off? Hmmm, people being mean. Can’t stand bullies.
Q3): What are some things that you enjoy doing when you’re not writing or taking care of other author business?
LOUISA: We tend to have a lot of animals in our house. So, there happens to have many babies. Yes, so baby birds, fish, hamsters. On a personal note, It’s reading. As a writer, I’m a fan of many authors. Right now, I have multiple books TBR, that popped up this week: pre-order!
Q4): If they were to make a movie about your life, what do you think it would be called?
LOUISA: Her Insane Life: I Know How She Does It
Q5): If you could have a superpower, what would you want it to be and why?
LOUISA: Flying for sure. I’ve had so many dreams about flying, soaring up high and then dipping down low to drag my feet in the ocean. I’d love to experience it in real life.
Q6): Who are some of your absolute favorite authors and books you could read a 100 times and never get sick of?
LOUISA: I did my master’s thesis on Stephen King and his Dark Tower series. He released a new book this past week. I’ve read those many times over. Most of the time, though, I don’t re-read. I think I have a pretty good memory, so it’s hard to re-visit a text office.
Q7): How has your road to being published gone thus far?
LOUISA: I feel extremely fortunate in my publishing journey. I got a fairly late start for fiction, but focused on non-fiction, working in journalism first. Throughout my life, I’ve been fortunate to apply to one college, one graduate school, one publisher (so far … more coming soon) and one agent, and have landed all. I think it’s actually my Preternatural senses coming through. And, hopefully, a little bit of talent.
Q8): Was there any specific inspiration behind the creation of The Vampire, The Witch and The Werewolf books?
LOUISA: Not to say that I am basing my story off other work; however, why have to make the choice between the cultured vampire and hunky werewolf?
Q9): How many books do you have planned for the saga?
LOUISA: Right now, there are four books, and one prequel that was released at Christmas. I’m so close to being done with book 3, The Voodoo King. That book should be out soon. Book 4, The Wolfe Pack, takes readers back to Silver’s story and should finish it out. Although as I get close to finishing Voodoo King, the voices-that-be tell me that there’s more to tell for Madame Teresa’s niece, Mirabella. We’ll have to see about her story.
Q9): What were some of the challenges that you encountered while bringing the books to life?
LOUISA: The current book focuses a lot on a secondary character, which readers have wanted to know more about. Unfortunately, as I’ve been writing, I don’t like him a whole lot. I keep waiting for redeeming qualities. We’ll see. In real life, it doesn’t always work that way.
Q10): What are some of the challenges in writing same sex erotic fiction?
LOUISA: It has to be all the questions about one’s personal life. If someone writes a thriller or serial killer book, the interviews don’t ask how many people the writer has killer. Same-sex? They want to know sexual preferences.
Q11): With paranormal and fantasy being such a popular genre these days, what about it fascinates you personally?
LOUISA: I’ve always been a believer. As a child, my grandmother stayed the night in my room and said that that she woke and saw several glowing figures standing around the bed. If you’re 9, and hearing that, you tend to believe. There is so much within life that we cannot explain, why not paranormal explanations?
Q12): What else do you have in the works or in mind outside of your SEX UNIVERSITY and THE VAMPIRE, THE WITCH & THE WEREWOLF books?
LOUISA: I’m got a new shifter series planned that I’m starting as soon as my current book is finished. It’s based off old mythology, and the heroes are so alpha and yummy. I’ve definitely playing with “true” stories and put a modern twist on the story.
I’ve also submitted to another publisher to an uber-sexy 1Night Stand line that I really adore. Fingers-crossed for later this year.
Q13): Are there any other books in your backlist that you’re planning follow-ups for?
LOUISA: I actually have three stories plotted out for the Sex University series. I know, I know. But when you start to write these stories, they live with the author. One deals with a threesome between Ms. Lucy, her lover, Clarissa, and Clarissa’s “former” fiancé. Within same-sex fiction, there are less F/F/M books published.
Q14): What question have you always thought it would be great to be asked in an interview but have never been asked, and how would you answer that question?
LOUISA: I haven’t been asked what I would like changed within the industry. Romance still carries a “bad” name, and people are embarrassed to say that they read/write romance, and especially erotic romance. If something is sexy, why is that “bad” It’s a normal part of our lives. Why not write about people finding love?
Q15): Is there anything special you’d like to say to your readers while we have you here today?
LOUISA: Thanks so much for reading my books. I love to hear from readers, and it’s wonderful to hear what you’re thinking with these storylines, too. My characters share a lot with me, and I tend to know much more than what I write about, so if there’s something you want to know, you can always ask.
LITERAL ADDICTION/Book Monster Reviews: Louisa, thank you so much for being with us today. We’d be happy to have you back for the next big release if you’re interested.
