Author Lucynda Storey Tells All

October 29, 2007

ST: Hi, Lucynda Storey, welcome and thank you for visiting with us this week.
LS: Thanks for having me Sloane.

ST: Tell us about yourself.
LS: Gee, that’s a tough one. lol I grew up in the Air Force, so I traveled a lot as a kid. The travel bug bit me young and I love to go to new places. Many serve as settings in my stories.

ST: Your latest novel, The Collector 7: This Time Forever, is out. Let’s show everyone your gorgeous cover.

ST: It looks to be an exciting, hot read. Please tell us about it.
LS: A terminally ill woman is thrust back in time to the pirate ship of the man she’s fantasized about since she first read his journal. He has been searching for the reincarnation of his deceased wife and instead finds a modern talking woman with an attitude in his cabin.

ST: How did you come up with the story line?
LS: I knew I wanted to do a pirate story after I saw the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie. But, I also knew there were a lot of women here and now who thought Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow was hot. Hmm. How do we get a modern woman to a character like Jack? That started me off and running.

ST: Sounds great. Where and can we buy The Collector 7: This Time Forever?
LS: The Collector 7: This Time Forever is available at Loose Id.

ST: How many books have you written?
LS: Eight full length novels and several shorter pieces.

ST: Which is your favorite and why?
LS: That is always such a tough question to answer! I love my cops Jack Smith and Case Roberts, but then I love Rand in This Time Forever and definitely Rey in Reynardine and Tyler in Things That Go Bump in the Night. I wouldn’t have written them if they weren’t my favorite at the time.

ST: Just how hot are your books, Lucynda?
LS: They range. Some are sensual, but most are what I’d call blistering. The Captive’s Release, and Simply Irresistible are probably the two hottest works I have, although Passionate Resources: Naomi features some intense scenes using virtual reality technology, machines and a couple of sexy, horny men. lol Here’s the cover for Captive’s Release.

ST: Absolutely yummy! You also have a non-fiction work. Tell us about that.
LS: It’s a collaboration with three other authors titled 10 Steps to Creating Memorable Characters. It available from book stores and Amazon. Here’s the cover.

ST: This is definitely a book I need to buy! Thanks for coming out today, Lucynda. Can you spare time in the morning?
LS: Absolutely, I’ll be here bright and early.

ST: Until then…

Happy Writing!
Sloane
