I was totally, totally stumped for what to talk about for this blog post, so I went on the Kinky Canadian Romance Authors and Book Fanatics Facebook page and asked for help. Specifically I asked for people to give me a couple interview-type questions so I could talk about the answers to them. Luckily for me, Lisa Emme came to my rescue and asked me a couple questions.
And if you’re curious about what the Canadian connection in all this is, it’s me. I’m Canadian so therefore when I answer questions about myself it’s Canadian content. Or something. All right, I admit that’s a pretty weak connection, but I was really stumped :-p
What is the strangest ‘prop’ you have ever written into a sex scene?
I haven’t used very many truly unusual things, actually. Which makes me a little sad in retrospect. Recently I did write a story that involved anal sex out in the middle of a magical forest so I had to come up with some natural lubrication and invented a plant I, oh so creatively, called the slickorice plant (rhymes with licorice). That might count as pretty unusual 😉 Other than that… I think really I should just take this as a challenge. What kind of strange ‘prop’ would you like to see me use in a sex scene? I’ll choose one (or more) and incorporate them into my next Erotica Under Glass adventure (I think it’ll start in February).
You are planning a story where ink and kink meet. Do you have any tattoos?
I am actually planning an anthology where ink and kink meet. It’s going to be called kINKED and it opens to submissions on January 1st (that’s Friday!). And I do, in fact, have tattoos. I have three so far, and plans to get several more. I love tattoos. My most recent one is on my left shoulderblade and it’s of my logo. A magpie my partner drew for me:
Which brings me to the final question…
And finally, what’s with the crow? Your name is even a play on the scientific name for the crow family is it not (Corvidae – I have a zoology background lol)?
My name IS a play on the scientific name for the crow family. Good catch 🙂 The logo is meant to be a magpie though, not a crow.
I love corvids. I love how clever they are, how playful and mischievous. When it was time for me to pick a new pen name I thought I’d steal the word Corvidae and turn it into a name. A handily placed i later I was on my way.
I think it works 🙂
