I’ve been writing since the age of twelve but became an author actually last year in 2012 when I got my first contract in March. To date I have 15 ebooks out.
Have there been any surprises along the way?
The surprises are always a fun thing. There have been a few in which I’ve been blessed and not so blessed. One of the blessings has been the great number of authors who are willing to help. The sad surprise is that there are some authors who aren’t willing to help each other. I’ve been blessed to have met more of those who love to help aspiring and published authors alike. I try now to return that favor.
Why this story? What was your inspiration to write it?
Taming Dru came about because of three other books before it in the Once Upon A Dream series that I’m doing for the Naughty Fairy Tale line for Evernight Publishing. Drusilla Trumane was featured in Cinda’s Fella and Ridin’ Red and couldn’t be told any other way but the way it was told as Drusilla was a hard nut to crack. Flora LeBeau was a good foil for her.
What was your favorite part of the book to write?
One of my fave parts to write is when Drusilla gets her comeuppance for mouthing off to Domme
Is there a message you want your readers to take away from this book?
The message other than enjoying life is that no matter who a person is they can find
their happily ever after. You just have to be willing to look for it and accept it when it
Do you have any other upcoming releases or projects you would like to talk about?
I’m constantly writing. I love it and now that it’s a dream made reality I’m steadily working on something. Right now I’m working on the fifth book in the Once Upon A Dream series tentatively called Swan Dancer. This will be Odette and Dante’s story.
Where can readers find you?
Who is on your "to be read" shelf?
Loads of people: Naima Simone, Shyla Colt, Avril Ashton, Aine P. Massey, Jasmine Haynes, Doris O’Connor, Piper Anderson, Elyzabeth M. VaLey, Melanie Fletcher, Jenika Snow and many many
What are you reading now?
I’m not reading anything at the moment, under a self-imposed deadline to write, write
…and yes of course write.
If you could only pick one book from your childhood to preserve for others to
read, what would it be?
Oh wow that’s a hard one…but I will say Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
How do you find your muse?
Through everyday life, music, reading, people’s names, pictures etc.
Where is your favorite spot to write?
Any place that I get a moment to write and where I have my laptop. I’ve written in my bedroom, living
room, in the car at a restaurant etc.
What book do you think should be made into a movie?
Shoot…that’s a hard one. More often than not books are better than the movie versions
anyways. Would it be lame to say I’d rather read the book?
Drusilla Trumane has been a naughty girl. Flora LeBeau knows just what to do to tame the
When beauties Drusilla Trumane and Flora LeBeau meet, the only thing beastly is Dru’s
behavior. But Domme Flora has just the cure for that.
Drusilla’s ghastly attitude may have alienated her from her sisters, but Flora sees beneath
the façade to the hurt woman beneath. Refusing to be turned away by her snide
comments and bitchy attitude, Flora continues to bring the haughty woman to her
knees, showing her at every turn she knows what she needs.
Desperate to retreat to the safety her walls provide, Dru agrees to allow Flora one night.
Will twenty-four hours be enough to get the other woman out of her mind and her
Be Warned: BDSM, rimming, flogging, f/f sex
“I get it. You’re in denial.”
Flora was twirling the ball gag around in her fingers, all the while the expression on her face was one of extreme contentment and confidence.
“In denial about what?”Drusilla frowned.
“What you desire, my girl.”
“And just what would that be? You’ve known me all of what, ten minutes?”
“Oh I know exactly what you want and what you need. Hell, anyone within a few feet of you could tell what you want and smell what you’re thinking.” The grin that Flora shot Drusilla pissed her off.
“You don’t know me, nor do you know what I want or even need.”
“When’s the last time you came to an image of a man, if you ever have.”
She gasped. “What kind of fucking question is that?”
“An honest one that I want the answer to, petite amie.”
“That’s none of your fucking business.”
“We’re back to that?”
“Yes, we’re back to that, and you better not try to use that shit on me.”
“Oh, I love a challenge. You’re going to find that out rather quickly.”
Before Drusilla could react, Flora was in her lap, straddling her in the chair. She pressed against her, tangling her fingers into Drusilla’s hair and tugging.
In shock Drusilla just stared at Flora. Flora pulled her head close with a tug of her hair. Like a deer stuck in the headlights, Drusilla could only watch as Flora pressed their mouths together, and then she was lost. Oh fuck.
She moaned softly into Flora’s mouth as the other woman nibbled at her bottom lip, then licked it, teasing her tongue into her mouth. Flora tasted of warmth and cinnamon. Spicy and sweet. Her scent was just as delicious. She smelled of freshly cut roses. She was fragrant and delectable. Drusilla’s head fell back against the chair, and she gasped for breath. She was breathing just as crazy as Flora had said. That brought her back to her senses, and she started struggling.
In a split second, her hands were wrapped up in the bondage tape and pulled up above her head and held against the wall that the chair rested against. She struggled and found that she couldn’t free
Flora had fucking put her hands up against the wall on some sort of hook that held her snuggly in place, and she was unable to free herself. Shit, who knew that the petite woman was strong. Looks were definitely deceiving. God, why did she like what she was doing to her. She’d soaked her
“Now if you’re going to be a good girl, I won’t tie you the rest of the way up.”
“Get off of me and let me fucking go.”
“Wrong answer, kitten.”
She couldn’t kick out because the other woman was sitting in her lap. She was arched in a way that even if the other woman got off of her, there wasn’t much she could do to free herself. The only thing she could do was rock back and forth trying to get her off her lap. It didn’t work.
Flora snickered and pulled on her hair, arching her head back.
“Still think I can’t subdue you, kitten? I suggest you put away your claws and play nice, or I’m going to gag you.”
Drusilla glared at her.“You wouldn’t fucking dare.”
“You’ve already seen what I would dare. That should tell you I’d dare so much more.”
Flora got off her lap with a chuckle and grabbed one of her legs, locking it into the cuff that was at the bottom of the chair. A cuff Dru hadn’t seen until now. Fuck. Flora gave the other leg the same
Standing back to her full height, Flora had her hands on her hips, the ball gag still hanging from one hand.
“So tell me what wouldn’t I dare to do again?”
“I—” her words were cut off as the ball gag was shoved into her mouth and the strap placed over her head.
“I like it much better when you’re quiet, kitten. You roar so fiercely but inside you’re a cuddly little cat needing to be stroked.” Flora stroked her finger against her cheek, and Drusilla tried to flinch
“That’s okay, kitty cat. I’m going to enjoy taming you.”
Flora turned towards the door that had opened, and Drusilla saw Anastasia enter. Shit. This was all she needed, her sister seeing her tied up like a trussed-up goose.
