As I walked up the long steep hill (yes, it is that steep!) to our meeting place just outside Lincoln Cathedral gates, I wondered how our lunch date would go. Would we get on? Would we even like each other?
I needn't have worried. We both felt at ease with each other, and found ourselves talking throughout the whole two and half hour lunch in the Magna Carta ~ A pub close to Lincoln Cathedral.
Like myself, Jennifer has done a lot of research, finding out what genre sells the best. I think the fact that we both write BDSM novels speaks volumes. Of course we're always on the look out for that elusive book that will thrust us into the limelight, big time. It happened to E L James with her Fifty Shades of Grey, so you never know. :-)
Jennifer Denys also writes for Evernight Publishing, and her latest book, Retraining the Sub has already reached bestselling status at ARE/ Evernight, and Amazon. I recently had the pleasure of reading Luke and Ann's story. It's a captivating BDSM book that re-unites long lost lovers, who at the time of their separation were not ready to marry. Now eight years later, they are totally different people, but before they can have their HEA, there's just the small matter of Retraining the Sub. It's available from Bookstrand HERE.
I love the cover for this book It really catches the eye and makes one want to read it!
Jennifer has recently celebrated her 1st anniversary since becoming a published author. All her books can be found HERE
I took my camera to Lincoln, but sadly the batteries refused to work! Luckily, Jennifer had a camera that functioned and she sent me a photograph of us both.

Nicole Morgan and am so very happy to be a guest on Jan Bowles’s blog today! For those of you who don’t know me, I am a multi-published author of erotic romantic novels, which more often than not have a suspenseful back story. Picture erotic romance mixed with a good old-fashioned whodunit and you’ve got a Nicole Morgan story! While I’ve written everything from contemporary to paranormal my leading men will more often than not be wearing a uniform of some kind. From military to police officers, she has a love for writing about those who protect and serve. From her very first novel (which turned into a 4 book series) about Navy SEALs to my more recent releases you will be sure to find a few twists and turns you were not expecting. In additional to my books, I also have a recurring column called, "Sex and the Single Woman" in BT Showcase's online eMagazine.
Welcome Nicole, can you tell us what your daily life consists of?
It’s funny you should ask. Every day my fiancé asks me what I’ve got on my agenda and every day it’s the same answer. It has turned into a bit of a joke between us because my answer is always the same. Among the many tasks of everyday life I always set out to reply to all my emails, do my promotion work and spend the remainder of my day writing. Now, remember I say that is always “the plan” but, it doesn’t always work out that way. I swear some days I have no idea where the time goes. LOL.

Q. What inspired you to write the “Wet and Willing” series?
A. For some years I’ve enjoyed swimming at a local, large Aquatic Center. One day as I was swimming up and down in my lane (the slow lane, sadly, not the fast lane, or even the medium lane), I started thinking that an Aquatic Center would be a mighty fine place to meet Mr. Right. After all, there’s plenty of brawny, naked chests, quite a lot of young, good-looking, ultra-fit life guards, and lots of sweaty, delicious muscles in the gym. The only surprising part of my decision was that I hadn’t thought of doing it long ago.
Q. Which element of story creation is your favorite and why?
A. When the ideas flow, the characters are talking to me, and I can’t type fast enough for all I want to say.
Q. What is your writing process?
A. I don’t begin writing until the characters are clear in my head and I know what they want. I need a beginning and an end, and some midpoints to reach on the way through. Then I begin typing.
