Today’s guest is erotic romance author, Elodie Parkes. Welcome!
I live in Canterbury, United Kingdom. It’s famous for the Cathedral, Chaucer, and there is a UNESCO world heritage site, which includes the ancient ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey and St Martin’s Church. There is also a ruined castle. It’s a pretty place too and the coast nearby is great. I work in an antiques shop and write. I have two dogs that keep me fit with their need for walks. I write romance, contemporary and erotic with a twist of mystery now and then. I like to make the story unusual in some way, by a quirk in the tale.
Who are you and why are you here?
I am a damned good writer with some hot love stories to share.
Plug your book(s) in three sentences or less:
What genre(s) do you write in? Why did you choose it?
I write contemporary, erotic romance because I think we need more love in the world. More beautiful things and more chance to feel. I think let’s not look back on our life and think I wish I had loved more had more love.
Most writers are ‘different’ from the rest of the world in some way. What makes you different/odd/weird?
Yikes, I don’t know. I suppose it’s my unfailing optimism in the face of rejection LOL
Where do you get your ideas? What motivates you?
I get my ideas from people, from the emotional things that happen to people. I like to inspire, or give some pleasure that might not be there if a person did not read my work.
What do you like on your pizza?
I hate pizza J
What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
Chocolate coated biscuits. Looking at the Man Candy photos J
What do you wear to bed?
A various assortment of camisoles and if they are short ones, little silk shorts.
What is your ideal vacation?
A road trip across a cool continent with a gorgeous guy in a Chevrolet ute.
What’s the weirdest search term that led to your blog?
Sadly I have no idea, which says a lot about my SEO knowledge or amount of time I have to look. I do need to check all that stuff out.
And now for some either/or questions: Bath or shower?
Mayo or Miracle Whip?
Cat person or dog person?
Both but if I have to choose, dog
Chocolate or vanilla?
The book or the movie?
The book, no the movie, wait the book, J
Floss or brush?
Phone call or email?
Bonus question: What is the airspeed velocity of a coconut-laden swallow?
