THE INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:
Tell us a little bit about yourself!
V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, yoga, belly laughs, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.) She shares her life with her husband, her daughter, one dog, two cats, a flock of assorted domestic fowl, and three Jersey steers. When not writing spicy romances, she enjoys spending her day with her menagerie in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania with a cup of fresh java in hand. She can also be found online on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and GoodReads.
Can you give the readers a brief summary of your latest book?
Authors know that their muse is a fickle creature. Best-selling spy novelist Stephen Ramsey has been in a hate-hate relationship with his inspiration for months. When Stephen’s publisher lays a legal ultimatum upon him, with a rapidly approaching deadline, he knows he must do something to kick-start his creativity or face the unemployment line. His daughter comes up with a possible answer: a summer camp for the creative soul. With nothing to lose, Stephen packs up his laptop, phonograph and beloved record albums and heads from Greenwich Village to the Catskill Mountains. There, among a horde of college students attending for extra credits, is Declan Pomeroy, a photographer of fey creatures who is twenty-two years younger than Stephen. The woods are a magical place, and he quickly finds himself falling under the spell of the free-spirited photographer. Confusion wars with desire inside Stephen as he succumbs to the feelings welling up inside. But, sadly, summer camp always has to end. Can a man who has just found himself really leave the person that makes his heart sing?
What genre does it fall in?
Will you share a few words about your latest book, other than the usual blurb?
Life is a Stevie Wonder Song is a tale about one man’s journey of self-discovery
Give us a little insight into your main characters! Who are they?
Stephen is a best-selling spy novelist who has lost his muse. Declan is a free-spirited photographer who is 22 years younger than Stephen.
Will we be seeing these characters again any time soon? Is this book part of a series?
Tell us a little bit about your writing style. When and where is your favorite time/place to write?
Early in the morning at my kitchen table. It faces east and the sun shines in on me through a wide bow window. Perfection!
What sort of book do you enjoy reading in your free time? What was the last book you read? Did you enjoy it?
The last book I read was Checking it Twice, an M/M hockey romance by Samanta Wayland. I loved it!
Did you always know you wanted to be a writer? Have you held any interesting jobs while you worked on your books?
No, not always. I worked in the food service industry for many years then became a full-time mom.
What does your writing process look like?
My process is my muse waking me up, dragging me to the laptop, and making me write what she wishes. I’m an organic writer, so there is very little planning aside from brief character sketches.
Why did you choose to write GLBTQ romance? Why not another genre?
There is just something pure and passionate about LGBTQ romance. I do pen M/F hockey romances as well, but LGBTQ holds a special place in my heart.
One last questions…totally unrelated to books! I am a passionate foodie. Is there one thing in your pantry that you would be horrified for people to know that you eat?
Doritos. They are my weakness.
Thankyou so much for answering my questions. I think my readers will enjoy learning more about you! Good luck in your future writing!
