Lisa Worrall

Lisa Worrall is another stellar mm romance author I've been reading. She writes
great books. 
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.
