I write erotic historical paranormals romances for Kensington Aphrodisia. I have a great husband, cats named Chelsea and Biscuit, and a bf named Eva. My sister and mom are two of my closest friends, and we all love animals.
I’m also a museum junkie and am intensely interested in history and archeology. When I was an art history major at university, I became fascinated with Greco-Roman artifacts. I’ve visited many archeological sites and museums in Italy and Greece. All those ancient urns, frescoes, and amphorae decorated with satyrs (the carnal followers of the Roman god of wine, Bacchus) and maenads celebrating the annual grape harvest inspired The Lords of Satyr novels.
I wrote Nicholas — the first novel — not knowing if there was a market for the type of book I was writing or if anyone would publish it. But I was intrigued with my story as it unfolded, so I forged ahead. Once the rough draft was completed, I went to an RWA conference. Afterward, I submitted three chapters of Nicholas and a series summary to Kensington. Six months later they called with an offer.
Writing this series has been a pleasure. There will be seven Lords of Satyr novels in all. In order of publication, they are: Nicholas, Raine, Lyon, Dominic, Dane, Bastian (May 2011), and Sevin (2011/2012).
I’m not sure if there will be more beyond these, but I love hearing from readers with their thoughts on what characters they might like to see get their own novels.
I hope you enjoy these books. Let me know.
