Get to know Seelie Kay today on #RB4U @SeelieKay #Romance

Welcome to Romance Books 4 Us, a place for all romance and all genres. We’re very happy to have you here with us today. First, tell us a little bit about yourself…

Please tell us a little about yourself...

I am a former journalist and recovering attorney. After more than 25 years in Lawyerland, I decided that writing was my true passion and left to start my own writing services firm. Eventually, that evolved into writing erotic romance—short stories about lawyers in love, with a dash of kink. I also ghostwrite books for other professionals.

What or who initially inspired you to become a writer?

I started writing as soon as I could hold a crayon and I never stopped. My head has always been full of stories and words. It was my parents and teachers, though, who recognized my interest and later, my talent, and found a lot of ways to encourage it.

Do you find yourself going back to the same inspiration for each story or is it always something different?

It’s never from the same source. I literally take my inspiration from wherever I find it, be it a news event, a conversation, a dream, or a memory.

When do you write?  Early morning? During the day sometime or all day?  After the kids go to bed?

I write when I am inspired. That may be in the morning or in the middle of the night, after lunch or dinner. I set no schedule for writing, so I am not bound by any rules. I find that eases the writing process because when ideas start to flow, they continue on for hours.

Do you ever see yourself as the heroine/hero or find yourself relating to them when you write a story?

All of the time. Different parts of my life, experiences that took hold, all play into characters and plots.

Do you have a special place you like to do your writing? Such as an office, a spare room, the dining room table, your couch?

I write in my loft. With three large windows and a skylight, it always feels like I am outdoors, no matter the time of the year.

As a reader, what types of genres do you enjoy? And do you think they influence the genre/genres you write in?

I like mysteries and thrillers, but I also read erotic romance. In fact, when I was in law school, my friends and I each purchased five romance novels a semester and then passed them on to others in the group after we read them. It was a great way to take a break from the law and relieve a little stress.  Many of my stories employ elements of a thriller or a mystery, so I am never far from the genres I most enjoy.

What is your favorite method of writing...as in laptop, desktop, iPad or the old-fashioned pencil and paper?  And do you plot out your story or go with the flow of your muse?

When you need a break or some time off from the trials of being a writer, what can you be found doing?
Baking or reading. I like to create new recipes, and of course, enjoy the results, or sometimes, bemoan them. And of course, while my new creation is baking, I usually pick up a book and immerse myself in the story.

What is your ideal romantic vacation?

A remote island surrounded by white beaches and crystal blue waters where there is nothing to do but enjoy the person I am with and the beauty around us, or a romp through Paris, stopping at patisseries and cafes, indulging in great food and wine, enjoying the ambiance of the city? Actually, what makes a vacation romantic is the person I am with, not the location. To me romance is about connecting, achieving that perfect melding of mind, body, and soul, being with someone you cherish who cherishes you.
