GUEST AUTHOR: Stormy Glenn

Let me welcome author Stormy Glenn to the blog today!

I've asked Ms. Glenn a few questions about her new release, Secret Desires and here's what she had to say:

Why did you decide to write Secret Desires?

When I started writing Secret Desires, it was simply entitled Leyland. I just love that name. I basically started the story around that. Then different ideas started popping into the chaos that is my creative streak, the "what ifs".

What if Leyland was a cute neurotic guy from the city that got lost or something and met this really hot rancher? Oh… what if the rancher was a werewolf and the alpha of his pack? Okay, then, what if Jake, the alpha rancher werewolf already had a lover? How could I bring the three of them together? Oh, and… you get the idea.

I didn’t get the idea for the werewolf part until like the third chapter. I had to go back and do a bunch of rewrites. At one point, I was almost done with the book but didn’t like the way it was going so I deleted over 30 pages and started those chapters over. I think it came out better with the new chapters.

Why do you write the kind of romances that you do?

I write pretty much anything and everything. You should see the mess that is in my head. I have an entire file on my computer that is nothing but ideas. I don’t think, as a writer, we should be tied down to one genre. I think it makes a better story to just write it, then figure out where it fits.

I am a very firm believe in love at first sight, true love, soul mates, and happy endings. All of my books have happy endings, somehow! But true love doesn't come easy. You have to work for it and it takes constant maintenance. I try to convey that in my stories. Never take what you have been given for granted. Appreciate it, savor it, and never let it die.

Before you go, tell us a little bit more about you.

I believe the only thing sexier than a man in cowboy boots is two or three men in cowboy boots. I also believe in love at first sight, soul mates, true love, and happy endings.

When I’m not being a mother to my six teenagers or cleaning up after my two 70 pound lap puppies, you can usually find me cuddled in bed with a book in my hand and a puppy in my lap. Or on my laptop, creating the next sexy characters for my stories.

I'm reeling. SIX teenagers? I had four kids, but only three of them were teens at any one time, LOL. I'm assuming the kids don't read mom's books. :) Where do you get your inspiration?

Stormy Glenn said...

Yes, six teenagers. My oldest just turned 20, the youngest is 15. And no, they don't read my books, but they do help with the plots sometimes. One of my oldest daughters has an evil, evil mind and she's great with plots.

My inspiration? Books I've read, names hear, things I see, and my heroes are inspired by my husband.

Hi Stormy, thank you for being my guest. I'm still reeling about the six teenagers myself. Wow!
