Author Interview: Casey Sheridan

It's hump day! And how fitting is it that I have erotica author, Casey Sheridan, here to talk to us?!

With her new novel, Ruby Red Metallic, just released last month, so Casey is hopping all over the Internet to spread the word about this hot & steamy story!



I was actually able to corner her in a dark alley and force her to answer some questions so that you guys could get to know her better! Ok, ok, so maybe I didn't threaten her, but she did take time out of her busy schedule to stop by and enlighten us.


 What inspired you to write Ruby Red Metallic?
    
C - A close friend of mine suggested I write something with a car. I thought he was nuts for the suggestion since I don't know anything at all about cars, except how to drive one. It took me a long time to come up with the story because I had to figure out how to incorporate a car into the story and make it sound natural.

Are you and your main character Alaina anything alike? Or is she a polar opposite?

C - Well, we're both gorgeous. LOL! Seriously though, I think it's a bit of both. I may be confident in some areas, whereas she's ultra-confident in all areas. Both Alaina and I will go after what we really want, although, what I want is usually on a much smaller scale than what Alaina wants. She's outgoing and shrewd, and I'm quiet and shy.

 Do you have a routine when you write?

C - I try to write everyday, or almost everyday, even if it's only for an hour or two. I absolutely have to have a bit of background noise, usually the television is on very softly. Before I do any writing, I play one round of solitaire to clear my head. That's my form of meditation or mind yoga.

How long have you been seriously writing erotica?

C - I've been writing erotica for about four or five years. And I always have fun with it.

Your main man Scott sounds like a hottie, do you have a visual that inspired you? (perhaps one I can share with my readers?)
C - Well, the only visual I have is in my head, but I did find this pic that comes pretty close to what he would be like.

(wipes drool off chin) He's...uh, nice...

What's your dream car(s)?

 C - Well, I'm going to have to say the Porsche 911 GT2. After doing so much research on it for Ruby Red Metallic, I've really learned to appreciate everything about it. It's a gorgeous car.

Tell me about some of your favorite authors, sexy & non-sexy.

 C - I like Jane Austen; Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book.
I'm about the 4th or 5th book in of Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series. I really like her heroes. They're so alpha, but yet have a softer side and they can be a bit dorky. Sort of like real men can be.
Shelli Stevens is another favorite. Her book Dangerous Grounds really inspired me to keep writing and to do it seriously. She's also one of the nicest authors I've met. She's very approachable.
Saskia Walker is another favorite, along with Nicole North.
Gosh, there's so many more that I love, I don't want to miss anyone, so I'm going to stop here.

Ok this one might be hard....Captain Jack Sparrow(Johnny Depp), Thor(Chris Hemsworth) and The Green Lantern(Ryan Reynolds), you have to Love one, leave one, Marry one....go!

C - Love Captain Jack, marry The Green Lantern, and as much as I regret it, leave Thor. Can't I just keep Thor around to nibble on once in awhile?

Quickies:

Roller Coasters or Merry-go-round? Merry-go-round...I like to ride the warrior horse and pretend I'm a warrior. I know, weird, huh?

Morning or Night? Morning

Snakes or Spiders? Ewww, neither. But if I must choose...snakes.

Hunky Jock or Bad Boy? BOTH!

Leather or Lace?
Again...BOTH!

Fast Car or Motorcycle? Fast car

Tea, Coffee or Red Bull?
Coffee!

Well Casey, thank you so much for taking to the time to stop by & answer all my questions! Next time I won't be so forceful!

Now that your interest is sparked go out and hunt Casey down, I mean stalk her like there's no tomorrow!

Dark alleys are where I do my best work, lol

Casey is a doll and then some! The more I learn about her - the more I love her, and Ruby Red Metallic is hotter than an overheated engine. (I'm bad with car metaphors!)

Great interview ladies!
