Tricia: Tell us a little about yourself.
Tricia: When did you begin writing?
Dan: After years of thinking about it and writing short sections of prose, I finally completed a whole short story in May 2012!
Tricia: Describe your writing process. Do you plot or write by the seat of your pants? When and where do you write?
Dan: I hate to plan, I like to be as surprised as my readers as to the direction my writing takes. Planning is BORING! My characters grow and develop, reacting to the plot just as I and my readers do!
Tricia: Can you tell us about your most recent release?
Dan: My most recent is a fantasy magical erotic piece, written under a different pen name – if you want to know more then you have to e-mail me.
Tricia: How did you get the idea for the book?
Dan: I love magic and the idea came from the magical season of the fall from the golden yellow, russet browns and rich warm reds of my favorite time of the year.
Tricia: Of all your characters, which one is your favorite? Why?
Dan: The female lead of my latest story, she is so exciting!
Tricia: What was the most challenging aspect of writing your book?
Dan: Keeping myself from satisfying the urges generated by her behavior!
Tricia: Which authors have inspired your writing?
Dan: Too many to mention!
Tricia: What projects are you currently working on?
Dan: I’m working on a romantic story set in Rome, of course it has raunchy and explicit sex scenes too, but more romance than I usually allow my characters to experience!
Tricia: What advice would you offer to new or aspiring authors?
Dan: Just write, don’t worry about grammar and spelling, just write on and on and on – never try to edit it as you go or you will never finish anything!

Caught in the ethereal glow of his monitor screen, he freezes like a rabbit caught in headlights. Sam freezes in denial. When Samantha finds Paul engaged in cyber-sex with a man, she fears for his sexuality, and their marriage. Realizing that she has been neglecting their physical relationship, Sam wakes her husband with hot passion on her lips. With intimacy restored, she allows her curiosity free reign, unwittingly igniting deeply buried primal fires. When Sam is left alone with Paul’s virtual bull, she takes matters into her own hands. A meeting is arranged.
