1. How did you become a writer?
That’s a hard question! I really don’t know. I guess it basically amounted to thinking that I could do, then sitting down... and writing a lot before I was anywhere near being good enough to call myself a writer.
2. How did you get the idea for the series?
I had the first thousand words of the first story, Take Me Down, on my hard drive for nearly a year when I was toying with ideas for a short story. I pulled it out and finished it, and then thought that it would be interesting to explore what had happened to other characters that night.
3. When you’re not writing, what do you like to do to relax?
If I’m not at my day job or spending time with my family, then I am probably knitting. I knit a LOT. I have a yarn problem.
4. What can we expect next after the Erotic Me series?
Oh, if only I knew! LOL. I’m working on several things—paranormal, women’s fiction, historical. We’ll see if anything flies!
5. Where can we find you online?
I am on Facebook (Lauren Hawkeye), Twitter (Lauren_Hawkeye) and I have a website (www.laurenhawkeye.com).
Just for fun…
6. What’s your favourite jewel?
Hmm. Well, I’m pretty fond of the diamond that my hubby gave me, LOL! But my favourite would probably be a star sapphire. My mom had one in a ring that she passed on to me when I was nine, and since my birthstone is a sapphire and I collect stars, I felt really drawn to it.
7. What’s your ideal holiday destination?
Anyplace warm! Hawaii is a favourite. I would also love to explore Italy... I could spend months in Rome!
8. Which item of clothing can’t you live without?
A basic black cardigan sweater.
9. Who would be your ultimate fantasy dinner guests?
Bryan Adams, Fabio, Kate Middleton, Alexander Saarsgaard, Margaret Atwood and Elizabeth Zimmerman.
10. What’s the weirdest place you can imagine writing a sex scene?
I’ve written them in all kinds of places! I can’t be weirded out!
Thanks Lauren - and if you ever have that fantasy dinner party please give me a call!
