Interview of Author Reana Malori

Today it's my pleasure to present an interview of romance author Reana Malori.

Latest Book: Dinner for Three

Reana Malori is a pseudonym for a chick with dreams of world domination. However, if that’s not possible, I’m willing to settle for being one of the best interracial romance / erotica writers on the market. As a true believer in romantic, my stories will always have a “happily ever after” even when hot and steamy bedroom scenes are included. I am first and foremost a fan of romance and erotica and have been an avid reader since the age of fourteen. I continue to write, my ultimate goal is to provide the reader with a way to live vicariously through my characters and escape into my universe, if only for a few hours.

I enjoy hearing from friends, so please feel free to email me at:

Q: What’s the first thing you did when you received word you’d sold a book?
A: I danced in my living room and yelled and screamed to my husband that it has actually sold. I was ecstatic. I had high hopes that it would sell, when it actually happened, I was over the moon.As a treat, my hubby took me out to dinner as a celebration that I had officially become an author.

Q: Do all your heroes and all heroines look the same in your mind as you “head write”?
A: They each have their own look and feel as I’m writing. Once I “know” how the character will look, they keep that form throughout the entire story.Even as I’m framing the story, the characters take on their description before the first word is typed. That will sometimes make it difficult to choose a cover for the book, but it usually works out okay.

Q: What hobby do you enjoy when not writing?
A: Oh, that’s easy. I read, read, and read some more. Reading has been a part of my life since I was fourteen. As a teenager, full of piss and vinegar, this was my way to escape and enter another world. Whether it be a historical romance or contemporary. The only requirement was that it be a romance with a happily ever after. I currently have about 400 books at the current time, over the years, the number of books I have read is easily double that number.

Q: What is your favorite romance book that you’ve read?
A: Oh goodness, do I have to choose only one? I love reading books and have about 400 of them, both hard copy and e-book format and it would be extremely difficult to choose only one. I can expand the question a bit, I probably have three of four all-time favorites that I have read dozens of times and still have the same reaction to the book – I fall in love with the characters all over again. However, I’ll try to be good and focus on only two. Saving Grace by Julie Garwood is my all-time favorite historical romance. It has all of the elements that I absolutely love in a story, drama, romance, family, friendship, forgiveness, and a strong alpha male. My favorite contemporary romance is My Best Friend’s Girl by Dorothy Koomson. This was my very first interracial romance book, which I found on “accident” on “accident”. Every time I read this story, I still cry at some parts, laugh at others, and my heart rips in two at how the story unfolds. I have others, but these are my all-time favorites.

Q: What genre would you like to try writing in but haven’t yet done so? Why?
A: Historical. I haven’t yet been inspired to write this type of story even though I love to read them. I believe historicals are a very difficult genre to write effectively. Although I know others are able to write them successfully, it can be difficult to make sure the dialect, dress, environment, and character expectations are all correct. One day I hope to write a historical romance, but that will be sometime down the road.

Q: Facebook, MySpace, Blogs, Chats, or Twitter. Which do you like best and why?
A: I really enjoy chats and blogs the best. I can really share my personality with the readers and share my thoughts and insight. It allows for more interaction and builds stronger connection. I do have a facebook page that I keep up-to-date with book covers, snippets of what’s going on in my life, and to say hello to everyone.

Tell us where to find you: website(s), publisher’s page(s), blog(s), Facebook page(s), etc. List them all!
Absolutely!And I love to hear from new friends.
Another place where I’m very active is my Yahoo! Group, which can be found at:

Celina Jefferson never expected to find love and fulfillment with more than one man, especially not at the same time. Adrian Marshall and Jake Huffington were two men who knew what they wanted out of life, and right now, they wanted Celina. A game of seduction is underway as Jake and Adrian try to convince Celina that the three of them are made for each other.

His eyes didn’t miss anything, and when she walked in the front door he spotted her right away. She was beautiful, and he couldn’t take his eyes from her. Celina Jefferson, the senior staffer from MH Associates he and Jake had noticed earlier. She walked with such confidence. He could tell she knew exactly who she was and what she wanted—and wasn’t going to apologize for either. Her long dark brown hair fell in waves to the middle of her back, and he ached to run his fingers through it. Perfectly rounded hips that were a focal point of her lush body were connected to thick, long legs. His mind immediately conjured pictures of those long legs wrapped around his waist as he plunged inside her accepting body. And when she turned in his direction—oh gawd—yes, she was beautiful.

Never one to back down, he gave her a full-on stare. He wanted her to know he was interested and although she didn’t know it, he would give her the time of her life. Inappropriate? Yes. But he would be damned if he would back off. If given the chance, he would make sure she never forgot him or how she felt when he was inside her. Decision made, he grabbed his drink and slid out of his seat, intent on making his way over to the woman who’d captured his undivided attention all day.

Thanks for being here today!

You give great interviews! I have to make sure to go out and get this new one. I, like you, love historical romances, but I sure can't/won't write them. I will let the professionals handle it.

See you around!
