read all about her…
Welcome and great to have you here with us today!
What did you want to be when you were growing up or did you always want to be a writer?
I always wanted to be a writer. I had no interest in anything else, and no idea how little I would get paid!
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing before I learned the alphabet. My mother transcribed things that I dictated to her. I composed my first book at 6 years old, and it just grew from there. Writing is probably the one skill and interest that has persisted and grown throughout my life.
What is a typical writing day like for you?
I don’t have a typical writing day. I write all kinds of things professionally, different genres, but some days it comes more easily. Some days there’s a lot of staring into blank space. Some days there’s the furious accumulation of thousands of words in a brief period of time. It all seems to even out, but there’s definitely nothing typical about any of it.
Do you have any specific routine you follow or specific items you need with you when you write?
No, which is odd, because in other areas of life I’m a fetishist. I do require certain comforts and allies. For writing, I’m plug-n-play. It never turns off, I just have to devote time to sitting down and purging the words from my brain.
What is your favorite part of writing? Is there anything you don’t like about being a writer?
Writing is a very capricious thing, sort of a barometer for other life areas. I find that I have states of being and moods that determine what I can write at any given time, and how easily it comes out. I generally cycle with a couple of weeks of blissful, poetic composition, which seems to coincide with getting along well with others, butterflies wanting to be near me, my general life outlook being good. Then I’ll have a couple of weeks where I’m best at editing, crafting, layering, drawing bits together. These eras always coincide with being generally anti-social, grumpy, and additional coffee. It works, though. I call it Writing Brain vs Editing Brain. I’ve learned that forcing one during the era of the other is pointless. The synapses just aren’t there, and it’s only taken me 30+ years to figure that out…
What is your favorite length of book to write? (Short story, novella, full length novel) Why?
I don’t gauge the length of things as I’m writing them. I just write until I get there, then I’m done. Looking in the rearview, though, it would seem I’m most comfortable with novella-length projects, though I’ve written full-length novels, as well.
How does your family feel about your writing and you being an author?
They like it as long as it doesn’t interfere with the household, relationships, chores getting done, face-time, mood, sleep, other obligations, social availability, quality time…
Is there a to-be-read waiting on your bedside table?
There isn’t, actually. I’m quite caught up on my literature. The last thing I read was Killer in Sight, by Sandra Carrington-Smith, a murder/mystery thriller. I really enjoyed it.
For fun, I have a few personal questions,
1) Favorite Holiday ~ Samhain, though Beltane is a close second. And the Solstices…
2)Favorite Drink ~ Good, black coffee3)Favorite Author ~ Several: Neil Gaiman, Storm Constantine, Dale Peck
4)Favorite Book ~ Several: Neverwhere, Wraeththu, To Kill A Mockingbird5)Favorite Animal ~ I love cats. I don’t exactly have a favorite animal, but I get along with them best and seem to understand them best.
And for a bonus: What is a typical mood for you? And is your mood different when you’re writing?
I’m a pretty laid back person, very soothing and calm. If I’m able to write without interruption, I can maintain that demeanor. If I’m constantly getting interrupted, just stay back. It drives me nuts when I need to get in the groove and can’t because everything around me is chaotic.

About Gigolo Seduction
Long in passion’s service, confident Asif enjoys his life as a thirty-something escort, bringing romance into the lives of metropolitan socialite cougars. Gifted at seducing wealthy white MILFs and bringing them endless pleasure, the arrogant Persian eschews investing in a personal life. A chance meeting with young artist, Cass, while on the job at a gala event, changes his perspective on women forever, and unleashes desires Asif never knew he had.
From Gigolo Seduction…
“Are your works always so intricate?”
She shakes her head, again scanning the tower, though my eyes stay on her. “Frescoes are always detailed and hard work, but this is way above and beyond. Layering in kinetic elements to give moving light and dimensional depth is my dream project come true. Most of my projects are just frescoes.”
“Just frescoes.” I laugh. “They’re noble and valiant relics in the art world.”
“They’re actually in high demand.” Her tone is matter-of-fact. “Though few people can afford them.”
“Well, you’ve outdone yourself here,” I affirm. Her smile is sincere, her pride evident, elegant, enchanting.
“It’s taken quite a long time to come together, and I’ve left the plasterer more than a little frustrated on several occasions.”
“I can’t imagine him staying angry for long….”
“They’ve given me deep creative license over the project, so that’s saved my ass a couple of times. It’s kind of mind-blowing to work on something so limitlessly funded.”
Our eyes lock for mere seconds and the silence is disturbing. “I was just going for a bite to eat. Would you care to join me?”
Cass nods. “I’d like to, but I need to finish this section. This medium doesn’t wait well.”
She’s genuinely interested and I want her to be. I want her to be as affected as I am. Before I can prod further she asks, “Maybe another time?”
Reluctantly, I follow her to the elevator. She opens it with a pass card attached to a cord coiled on the drawstring of her pants. My eyes linger on the brilliant green gem in her navel.
“What’s your name?”
“Asif,” I reply without hesitating. The sound is bare, like a secret revealed, though I don’t understand why. I always use my real name.
“Another time, Asif.”
The doors slide closed, and I agree.
