Welcome Stephanie and thank you for taking part in our Gods & Goddess week!

A la Twitter style, can you describe your book (or series) in 140 characters or less.

Being a goddess isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. There’s magic and mayhem, but there’s also hot men…

What 2 authors are you dying to write an anthology with?

I actually got to participate in an anthology with four of my favorite erotic romance writers this past year. Cherrie Lynn, Olivia Cunning, Cari Quinn, Raven Morris and I collaborated on A VERY NAUGHTY XMAS, five ultra-hot stories including a new Ross Siblings story, a new One Night With Sole Regret story and the first installment in my serial, “An Indecent Proposition.” Two men. One woman. Half a million dollars. An indecent proposition.

Quick & Easy

Day or Night?
Night. Hot summer nights, in particular. There’s something about the dark and the heat.
Love at First Sight or Second Chances? Love at First Sight. I love writing about that first spark and building on that.
Weres or Vamps? Definitely were. I love the whole man-vs-animal aspect.
Paperbacks or Ebooks? I was one of those never-gonna-read-ebooks people. And then I got a Nook. And that was all she wrote.
Past, Present or Future? Present. Enjoy it because it will be gone before you know it.
Reading or Writing? Ooh, tough one. I’ve been a reader longer than I’ve been a writer but I love to write. I’m calling that one a draw.
Coffee or Tea? Neither. Hot chocolate.
Plotter or Panster? A little of both really. I usually start writing the first scene I see in my head before I have a plot but then I always write down a brief synopsis.
Reality or Fiction? Both. Fiction makes my reality so much more entertaining but I love my husband and sons and wouldn’t trade that reality for anything in the world.
Laptop or Desktop? Desktop. I love sitting in my office at my desk creating.
Angel or Demon? Demon. Much more fun.
Authors Choice:  Ask the readers something!  What is your favorite myth about the gods and goddesses?

Now, something for the characters…

What initially drew you to your partner/spouse?

Rom loves Amity for her willingness to accept him and Remy as they are. Remy loves her sweetness and her goodness.

If Hollywood optioned your story, who would you like to see play you?

Rom would say Brad Pitt, only because that’s the only Hollywood star whose name he knows. Remy would want to know why anyone would want to play him in a movie.
What is something no one knows about you and would be surprised to learn?

GODDESS IN THE MIDDLE, Forgotten Goddesses Book 3

TOGETHER. THEY CREATE THE MOST POWERFUL MAGIC OF ALL …

Romulus and Remus are sexy werewolf cousins with an unbreakable bond. When they meet beautiful goddess Amity and save her from an encroaching demon, they discover that the three of them together are way more powerful than any of them could ever have imagined.

And they're going to need that power to overcome the forces that are determined to steal Amity's magic and destroy the two men. As different as night and day, and each an amazing man in his own right, Rom and Remy make all of Amity's deepest fantasies come true …

Also by Stephanie:

IN HIS ARMS, HER MAGIC POWERS ARE ON THE RISE...

Tessa, Etruscan Goddess of the Dawn, is desperately fighting off a malicious god, but her powers are weakening. She needs a hero and fast, because only sexual energy can give her strength. So she seeks out Caligo, whose sexual prowess is legendary...

AND SHE'S THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN BRING HIM INTO THE LIGHT...

Caligo is a fabled Cimmerian warrior determined to stay away from spoiled goddesses who trample hearts after they've had their fun. But there's something irresistibly hot and inviting about Tessa, and he knows he's her only chance to escape the encroaching darkness...

HE'S EXACTLY WHAT SHE'S ALWAYS WANTED,
AND SHE UNLEASHES HIM LIKE A FORCE OF NATURE...

Lucy was once the beloved Goddess of the Moon, and she could have any man she wanted. But these days, the goddesses of the Etruscan pantheon are all but forgotten. The only rituals she enjoys now are the local hockey games, where one ferociously handsome player still inflames her divine blood...

Brandon Stevenson is one hundred percent focused on the game, until he looks up and sees a celestial beauty sitting in the third row. A man could surely fall hard for a distraction like that...

  4. Stephanie love your answer to the authors you would wan't to write with...Olivia Cunning would be my favorite pick!
    My favorite part about gods and goddesses are the fact that they have so much power and are not human but have to find the balance between their power, deity status, internal natures and humanity. They are just fascinating to think about!

  5. I have a thing for Norse mythology myself. Love everything relating to Thor. I visited Norway over 20 years ago, have a Thor's hammar necklace...
