Lisa Worrall is another stellar mm romance author I've been reading. She writes
1. How did you get your start writing gay fiction and/or erotica? Please tell us a bit about your background and early beginnings.
I've always wanted to be a writer, but real life and motherhood kind of overtook and it was put on the back burner. Then a couple of years ago I drifted into fanfiction when a friend asked me to write a piece for her birthday. I'd been writing fanfiction for about a year when another friend suggested that I was good enough to publish and I submitted a short story to Dreamspinners, Halfway House in their A Midsummer's Nightmare anthology. They accepted it and here we are.
2. What inspires you?
In regards to writing, music inspires me a lot. I also listen to music while I write and I find when you're stuck, if you crank up the volume, your characters tend to take you where you want to go. In "real life", my children inspire me.
(Nathan: I know what you mean. Music inspires me too).
3. What do you hope to accomplish with your writing?
I hope to generate a following that will allow me to write full time, but mostly I want to keep having fun with it. As long as the ideas keep coming, I'll keep doing it :)
4. If you had to choose, which one of your novels do you like the most and why?
If I had to choose it would be Thirst, which is due out in January 2012 with Silver. It gave me the chance to explore the darker side of my personality a little and satisfy my long-obsession with vampires.
5. If you had a message for your readers and fans, what would it be?
If I had a message, it would be keep reading. Keep expanding your mind through the written word and don't let anyone curb the genre you wish to read. Dive in, the water's lovely :)
Nathan: Thank you, Lisa. Lisa's books are available on Amazon.
