It was a pleasure to be able to learn a little more about the journey they have taken. Enjoy the following and be sure to show your support! Without further ado…
Where do you live?
I am very fortunate to live in a wonderful small town in northern California where art & wine rule.
Why are you a writer?
I have kept a journal of story ideas & experiences for decades. I knew someday I would sit down and write a book about one of them. But like many of us…I was too busy with life. Finally, I decided to move away from the hustle & bustle of Silicon Valley. For the last two years, I’ve immersed myself in the things I love. Writing, painting…and wine.
What do you enjoy about writing?
My first two books were from personal experiences. It was fun & easy to immerse myself as the main character. The words and the story poured out of me. My third book isn’t from personal experience and has been a little more challenging, but I still enjoy being immersed in a story.
Tell us about your most recent works
My first book (The Obsession) is about a young thirty-something man who falls in lust…then love for a young teenage girl. The story is also about the young girl’s journey in their relationship. My 2nd book is a very fun story about a young couple’s day to day experience when they decide to take a nude swingers cruise for their anniversary. (Our First Swingers Cruise). They are not swingers. Every day is full of surprises. Remember, both of these books are to some degree from my personal experiences.
If you could write a book in a new genre, which would you choose?
I love writing erotica. I don’t have a desire to change. But I do have a story about the true nature of reality, in which I share a very different perspective regarding Christianity & the entity referred to as Jesus. But don’t hold your breath on that one. Erotica is way more fun to write about.
Do you have any role models or people who inspired you to write?
No. I’m a writer….and not much of a reader. Although a part of me says it would be good for me to read how others craft their words. I’m just too busy and not motivated.
Are you working on anything at the moment?
Yes. My WIP is not derived from personal experience, thus it has been more challenging. It’s about the abduction of a man. I cannot say anymore, but don’t forget my genre is erotica.
Where can people buy your books?
My books are available on Amazon, Etsy & my own website. You can also see my artwork on Etsy & my website.
What advice would you give to an aspiring writer?
1. Write your story…that’s the fun & easy part.
2. Editing & making it perfect will be tedious, but its essential. Assemble a small group of friends & family to help….but still pay a professional to do a final read thru.
3. And finally, if you truly want to sell books, know that it will be up to you to market your book….everyday!
Most authors list it on Amazon and wait. Trust me, nothing will happen unless you generate interest.
It was lovely to learn more about Stevies writing. As for final comments Stevie had these kind words to say:
“Thank you Thomas for allowing me to participate in your endeavor. Thank you also for being a very nice person…and a friend. I see on Twitter you have an abundance of admirers.”Stevie Greenfield
