Hi Jenika and welcome to Fiery Friday. Let’s get straight to the questions!
Women relate to women and, more often than not, we’re left shaking our heads at men. As a woman, how do you write your male characters in their point of view and make them the hot alpha heroes us romance readers fall in love with?
I personally like a domineering man that can take control of a situation. In my stories I write the type of men I like to read, naturally. I think women like to read about alpha males because there is that allure of being taken care of by a man that can wholly protect and look are you.
Why romance? Do you believe it exists in the real world?
Of course! Romance is everywhere and I believe there is true love out there. I like to read romance because I'm a true romantic at heart.
If you had access to a time machine, what year would you travel to and why?
I'd like to travel to the fifties. I love the whole greaser and poodle skirt era.
Who is you favorite character that you’ve created and why?
I'd have to say Tate Wessen from my Underground series. He is the tortured hero that has a shattered pasts. He isn't your typical hero because he has a penance for being an asshole, but deep down he wants to be a good guy even if his dominating ways can sometimes be off putting.
You wake up one morning and realize you’re suddenly a kid again, but you remember everything about being an adult. What advice would you give yourself?
Don't let what others say shape who you are.
What’s inside the drawer of your nightstand?
Lube and a lifesaver...if you know what mean!
Does size really matter?
Yes and don't let anyone tell you it doesn't...lol
