ST: Good morning, everyone! Here is another of Lizzie’s fantastic covers to perk you up on this fine spring morning. Enjoy.

ST: All set to get started, Lizzie?
LTL: Fire away.
ST: You write erotica. Who or what encouraged you to write that specific genre?
LTL: My critique partners, Lena Austin and Lucynda Storey, challenged me with a ‘bet you can’t’, which of course I couldn’t pass up.
ST: How hot are your books?
LTL: The heat level varies. Among the Stones is more sensual than hot and doesn’t have humor. Pretty hard to be funny about someone getting sacrificed. lol. Call Me is pretty hot with all the phone sex and the heroine’s real life connection in the shower and received a 5 star rating from JERR. Night Nurse is pretty much a setup and sex, so it’s hot. Other than Stone, my books also have a lot of humor…I hope.
ST: What’s a normal day like for you?
LTL: Lately, I’ve been a little distracted. A good day for me, is getting a few chores out of the way around the house, answering e-mail and then writing until noon (during the week I get up at 4:45 am). Some days I have to run errands and I’m trying to get back into a workout routine.
ST: With your busy life how do you find time to write?
LTL: I try to treat it like a job. Sometimes, to accomplish this, I have to leave the house and go to a coffee shop or something and pretend it’s my office.
ST: Please describe your writing space.
LTL: I share the workspace with my husband. He’s into genealogy and has crap everywhere. Of course, he promises to file it, but I’m still waiting. Probably one of the reasons I work more and more on my laptop, as I find the clutter distracting a lot of times.
ST: Are there any quirks you have or do before or while you’re writing?
LTL: Music. I have music on and try to gear it around what I’m writing. For emotional scenes I like the sad, heart break songs.
ST: Rats! Our time is up for today. Are you ready to join us tomorrow for the Soft Side of Lizzie T. Leaf?
LTL: I’ll be here!
ST: Just a reminder to everyone, check out Lizzie’s website to find out more about here well written and exciting books. Until tomorrow…
