L.C.'s story in it is entitled "Shallow End." Make sure to read it, and all the other stories, when you order your copy (via Amazon). Here's my interview with L.C. about her story, writing, and her upcoming work.
1. What was your first published story, even if it was in a simple grade school anthology?
2. What attracted you to writing erotica?
3. Which non-erotica authors have influenced you?
4. What is your favorite erotic or adult film?
Secretary. I know it's a predictable choice, but I have a major lady boner for both James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Throw in some BDSM and swoon.
5. What was the inspiration for your story in "Forbidden Fruit?"
6. Are you "out" as an author of erotica to family, friends, and co-workers? If so, what were their reactions?
Sort of. My parents are aware-- we call it "the things I write that you shouldn't read." A few of my co-workers are aware, but only the ones I really like and/or feel like they won't spend a great deal of time analyzing what they imagine my sex life to be once they read it (my husband and I work in the same place, it would just get weird to have people guessing what goes on between us).
7. What's your next project?
The next stop on the Forbidden Fruit blog tour is Ava-Ann Holland interviewing Erzabet Bishop, who will in turn be interviewing me. You can follow the blog tour and possibly find your new favorite author.
