Hello and welcome Daisy Dunn to my site. She has so graciously agreed to be interviewed.
So lets begin…
1) First, tell us a little about yourself so the readers know who you are?
Well, first off, thanks so much for having me here today. Hi Everyone!! I live in Winnipeg, Canada, and I’m a prairie girl through and through. I live with the love of my life, which I consider a romance story with a happy ending. I’m not a full time author, as I still have my day job, but my dream is that one day I will be.
SC: We have the same dream honey and thanks for being here today.
2) What made you decide to write? Was it something you accidentally began? Or what you wanted to do? Or annoying character who refused to leave until their story was told?
I have always wanted to write, but I was filled with self-doubt. Well, this year, my New Year’s Resolution was to write a novel and try to have it published. So I sat down on January 1st and started writing a vampire erotic romance series that had been sitting in a shelf in my mind for a long time. It took me a little over three months to write and edit. Then my search began for a publisher.
3) I love hearing about first acceptances as an aspiring writer and now that I am e-published, I still love hearing about them. So tell us about that first acceptance.
I did some research on publishing companies and came across Secret Cravings Publishing. I started my novel on Jan. 1st/11 and I submitted it in mid April/11. One week later, I was going through my emails and saw an email from the publisher. Just like in the movies, I had a hard time opening it. I paced back and forth for a few minutes, preparing myself for rejection. Finally, I sat back down at my laptop and opened the email. I read the first line over and over again and all I could see was the word “accepted”. Once it sunk in, I screamed and jumped up and down. It was one of the best emails I’ve ever received J I kept writing and now I have a total of 6 stories being published in the next few months. YAY!!
SC: Brilliant, thank you for sharing.
4) Tell us about your current release? Where can readers buy it from?
My current release is called Hunger’s Desire, Hunger Series Book Two. It came out today, Nov. 18th. It’s a Paranormal (vampire) Erotic Romance novel…
Nerida, an ancient warrior for the Orion vampire tribe has searched for over one thousand years for her Healer, soul mate to the vampire. Then one fateful night, she senses him close by. He surprises Nerida by walking right up to her and changing her world forever.
5) What are you currently writing?
I’m working on several stories at once. I just finished writing one call Earth’s Desire, about an Earth Elemental witch. It’s book one in my Elemental Magic series. This ménage series focuses on 4 elemental witches (earth, wind, air, fire) and their struggle to find their mates before their 30th birthday, or they will lose their powers.
I’m also working on a Fairy/Elf erotic romance series, a sequel to The Portal, and the third book in my Hunger Series, to name a few.
SC: I love having several projects on the go.
6) What inspires you most when you write?
Truly, everything inspires me. From a trip to the dentist, to going out with girlfriends, I am constantly thinking about what could happen in these settings with my characters. I just can’t turn it off!!
SC: The dentist hasn’t inspired me yet lol.
7) What experiences have you had working with your publisher/s?
The majority of my books are published by Secret Cravings Publishing, and they are an amazing company to work for. Communication is a huge element between them and the authors, and if we have any questions, they bend over backwards to get us the answers. I couldn’t be happier!! I’m also just recently with XOXO Publishing, and I’m looking forward to getting to know them better!!
8) What are you reading now?
Diamonds in the Sand, Aquans II by Cassandra Pierce. I’m such a huge fan of her writing!!
9) What are your guilty pleasures?
Chocolate and chocolate (I just can’t stress this enough).
10) What would be your advice, if any, for other aspiring authors?
Don’t ever give up on your dreams of becoming an author…ever!!

Nerida, an ancient warrior for the Orion vampire tribe, served her clan faithfully, but longed for more. She had searched for over one thousand years for her healer, soul mate to the vampire, to no avail. One night, she felt his presence, her healer was within reach. He called to her soul, and she responded by frantically searching for him. She desperately needed to find him and make him fall in love with her. Only then would she transform him into the vampire lover fate ordained him to be.
Jesse Turner was an attractive fireman paramedic, who had built an impenetrable wall around his heart. A chance encounter had brought them together, and he was drawn to her with a fiery passion. However, with his vow to keep women at bay, he fought with his desire for this particular woman. He knew he needed to walk away and never look back, but could he?
Jesse couldn’t believe what had happened between Nerida and his ex-girlfriend. He suspected there was so much more to her and after tonight, he knew it. He followed Nerida and the luckiest towel in the world into the living room.
He couldn’t push her away. He wanted to know what she had to say, but he wanted something else from her first. Nerida walked to the couch turned around to face him and started to sit down. Jesse stopped her as he caught her free hand in his while her right hand still held the tiny towel in place.
What are you doing? This is too dangerous. Don’t do it. Jesse’s inner thoughts wreaked havoc in his mind. He let the thoughts drift off in to emptiness and let his heart take over for a little while.
With her hand in his, he brought it up to his lips and kissed the back of it. Electrical currents seem to run through Jesse’s body and his erection became a painful reminder of what he truly desired. Still holding on to her hand, Jesse gently put it behind her lower back as he guided her body closer to his. The passion and innocence in her eyes melted the last piece of ice encasing
his heart. She stood there before him, vulnerable and trusting. With both of her hands tied up, one behind her back, the other holding on to the barely there towel, he knew she had surrendered to him. Accepting her surrender was only a matter of time. He finally did.
He laid all his burdens, distrust, anger, and weariness on the ground and took a chance on Nerida. He took a step closer to her. Her body fit beautifully against his. He felt his erection push against her firm stomach and she didn’t pull away from it. He couldn’t see fear in her eyes, only trust, and something else he didn’t want to face yet.
He slowly lowered his head to her head. She tilted her face up to his, seemingly in acceptance of whatever he planned to do to her. He couldn’t put it off any longer. He needed to know what she felt like. He placed his free hand on her cheek and caressed her soft skin lightly. With a fire raging within his whole being, he lowered his head all the way so his lips touched her quivering lips.
