Under the Covers with Suzan Safi

Please join me in welcoming Suzan Safi to Under the Covers with Lynne.




Hi Suzan, thank you so much for coming on over. First important question. Silk, satin, cotton, flannel. What is your sheet of choice and why?

SS: Silk!!!! Love it…why? The material can easily slide…hmmm lol

Let’s get comfortable. What are you wearing?

SS: Silk “smiley”

LOL It’s going to be a slippery time here tonight. Silk on silk is like… well, you can imagine.

Calories don’t count. What snacks will we be munching on at midnight?

SS: Someone’s neck lol, no really, chocolate.

So… chocolate covered necks would be ideal? ; ) Truth or dare?

SS: Ah, hmmm, I think dare.

What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done?

SS: Oh, crap, I feared you would ask lol. Writing erotic romance!

Writing erotic romance is pretty daring. How would you describe your writing style?

SS: Fast-paced and exotic. One of my editors described my writing as a roller-coaster-ride; you don’t know when a surprise will pop up, or what you will find next. I write a mix of sub-genres within the romance genre. You can find contemporary, paranormal, a hint of historical, thriller, suspense and horror. I mix everything in my romances.

A roller coaster ride sounds awesome. What inspired you to start writing?

SS: Something I might have seen, heard, dreamt about anything and everything creates a story. One time a writing instructor challenged me with three words to see what I will come up with, the three words are: beach, pasta, home. The result was a horror romance story in the making. Don’t ask me how I came up with the story with the three words she gave me but poof – the story formed lol.

Beach, pasta, home… that sounds interesting!

Okay, now truth! What is the best pick-up line someone has ever tried on you? Did it work?

SS: “Will you marry me” and I did marry him lol

Oh, there’s a romantic story in there! How did your friends/relatives react when you told them you wanted to be a writer?

SS: They were surprised, then proud. I am published with four publishing companies.

Four publishing houses? Impressive. What is the best piece of advice on writing you’ve ever received?

SS: Don’t give up. Write because it makes you happy.

Good advice! What kind of goals do you set for yourself when writing? Word count? Page count?

SS: My only goal is to write the stories that nag at me, the story leads me. The characters are worse, they nag!

Do you listen to music while you write?

SS: Always. Love music, it inspires me.

Where were you when you heard your first book was contracted. What did you do?

SS: I was checking my email for the thousandth times lol, I danced the salsa on my sofa and my husband looked at me as if I had four heads lol.

Sounds like fun to me! Tell us about your newest release.

SS: Well, my short story actually I published it on my own, wanting to try it out on my own. ‘Adrenaline Rush – Rule Breaker’ an erotic short story.

Do you have anything in the works?

SS: Do I lol…always. I have three in the making right now, and a series God knows when I will finish the four books. Let me tell ya, it will be my last series lol.

That’s a lot in the works! Do you write full time or part time?

SS: Part time, if I do it full time I will reach lala land with no return lol

LOL/ What is your favorite color?

SS: Black and red

What is your favorite time of day?

SS: At night, late night.

What is a movie you could watch over and over?

SS: ‘The Outsider’ A western love story revolving around the forbidden love between a young widow from a quaker-like religious group and a cold-blooded gunslinger whom she takes into her home after he is wounded. Studio: Paramount Home Video Release Date: 01/31/2006 Starring: Timothy Daly Keith Carradine Director: Randa Haines

Sounds good! Who is your favorite character in your novels?

SS: Hmmm, very hard question. All of them have a special place in my heart, please if I picked a character; one will nag at my brain with a question, “what about me!!!”

If you could have lunch with one writer, who would it be?

SS: Lisa Kleypas and Kresley Cole.

I love Kresley Cole! What is your favorite part of being a romance writer?

SS: Living the stories I create, experiencing what my characters experience.

Least favorite?

SS: To me even the hard work I face as an author, still after all the sweat and blood I shed lol, I’m happy with what I do. We ‘authors’ are blessed actually.

We are blessed! There is no better job in the world! If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

SS: On an island, it’s exotic and maybe I can find a hunk to seduce…just kidding. I love exotic places.

Where can we find you now?

Blurb:

Antwan's talents extend to breaking every rule known to women. Now, Celia is finding the simple thrill of vanilla isn't enough to satisfy—and she doesn't mean ice cream!

Excerpt:

Her heart raced and waves of excitement traveled through her veins and hit her down deep into her core. That small nub throbbed in frenzy ready to be pleased. The son-of-a-gun invented a new way to please her. She never imagined he had this type of fantasy under his sleeve. This one topped all of his fantasies, a fantasy of abduction.

Together they enjoyed many fantasies with couples, traveled the Caribbean, and met with couples who liked to play sexual games, but abductions of being strapped to a bed helpless not knowing what was going on was a first. The idea made her vagina boil with anticipation and she couldn’t wait to experience what would happen next. Her liquids streamed along her lower lips, tickled by her bikini panties, her insides contracting while losing patience and control.

A door squeaked open, and booted footsteps clapping against the hard floor reached her ears. She turned her head to the left and saw a shadow of a man coming closer into the light.

“Well hello.” The stranger’s voice, thick and full of are-you-ready-to-play teasing, was music to her ears.

“My name is Antwan.” He smiled and stepped forward. His long blond hair hid half of his face. This stranger was not the normal type of men they played games with. Hot damn, Aden chose a man as beautiful as he was—the difference being Aden had black short hair and less muscles, while this one looked like he just jumped out of a wrestling magazine. Still both were the same height six feet tall. She moaned her hello since she couldn’t speak.

“Yeah…you can scream my name while I…do you.” Antwan winked at her as he advanced toward the bed.
