Author Thursday: Interview with J. Leigh Bailey

Today's guest is YA and NA LGBT romance writer J. Leigh Bailey. She's talking about inspiration and her upcoming release in the anthology MYTH AND MAGIC—QUEER FAIRY TALES. Very cool. :)


1. What flavor is your writing? (Contemporary? Historical? Spicy? Action? Space odyssey? Ninjas? All of the above?)

There are a couple common themes in everything I write, most importantly the achievement of a Happy Ever After (or at the very least as Happy For Now) ending. Whether I’m writing about werewolves or gay teenagers, there’s always at least an element of romance. Even my horror stories include a love interest. Outside of that, I’m a sucker for anything that involves self-acceptance and a building family (whether family by blood or by heart). That being said, I primarily write Young Adult and New Adult LGBT (male/male) romance.

My guest today is Samhain author Sandra Jones, and she's celebrating the release of her new book Her Wicked Captain with a book tour and a giveaway!

1. What flavor is your writing? (Contemporary? Historical? Spicy? Action? Space odyssey? Ninjas? All of the above?)

Lots of historical action. LOL! Think corsets, whiskey, pistol duels, river pirates, and Southern drawls.

Author Thursday: Interview with Charlie Cochrane

My guest today is author Charlie Cochrane, who has my new favorite answer to the first question. :) Enjoy!


1. What flavor is your writing? (Contemporary? Historical? Spicy? Action? Space odyssey? Ninjas? All of the above?)

Not all, but some. I write mysteries (historical and contemporary) with a distinct dash of slash – think Agatha Christie meets Oscar Wilde – and gay romances (of all sorts) with a pinch of spice. I don’t write full on sex scenes (they remind me too much of stuffing the Christmas turkey) but I do like to show the emotional side of a physical relationship.

2. Where do you get your inspiration?

Any and everywhere. A piece of music can make a storyline appear in my head, as can a chance viewing of something in the street. I’m a great people watcher – a ten second interaction I witnessed in a rugby club car park turned into a whole novella about a cross dressing actor and a rugby playing architect.
