Jake Matthews hasn’t had the easiest time with past relationships and is leery when it comes to matters of the heart. When Sabrina, the succubus visits him in his dreams, she breaks down his carefully constructed walls.
Jake finds comfort in the arms of the lovely mysterious woman who visits him in his dreams. He soon realizes this being has awakened feelings within he’d never experienced in the past.

Sabrina answered Jake's lonely calls in the night. When strong emotions for the mortal develop, she discovers that she must follow her instincts and pursue the man.

A spell casts Sabrina into the human realm, but she must convince Jake to acknowledge his true feelings for her within four days. If she fails, she'll remain a demon for the rest of eternity. She also discovers destiny will have its way when she’s unable to control certain events and learns a powerful lesson of self-sacrifice and love.

How did you come up with the idea for Demoness of Lust?

Originally, this story was supposed to be for a short Valentine’s Day paranormal contemporary story. Sometimes my muse lays down on the job while focusing on other WIPs, so I had to put it off to the side. Well, when I came back to it, I rewrote the entire story and voila! Previously my female lead was human and the heroine was to be a demon and I’m pleased with the outcome. Doesn’t mean I won’t write the original story sometime later in the year.

Which scene or dialogue was the most difficult for to write? Why?

There were no difficult scenes for me when it comes to writing, unless my story just stops flowing. When that happens, I’ll move on to the next WIP.

Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?

There are many WIPs on my flash drives. They’re all paranormal fantasy, contemporary pieces. Oh yes, and I have three science fiction/futuristic stories too!

Do you have any specific last thoughts that you want to share with us?

Everyone should embrace his or her dream of writing. If you’ve got that urge, please don’t hesitate. It’s been four years in November since my first book was published and I couldn’t be happier. I just ask for everyone to remember some important things:
  1. Always be kind to those you meet in cyberspace. If someone approaches you for writing advice, be kind enough to assist them.
  2. Never forget where you came from. Remember, we all had to start somewhere. Don’t let success go to your head. It can be taken away just as fast as it was given to you.
  3. If you’re a new writer, don’t let the reviews bring you down. You’re going to get bad reviews. (And if you don’t, God bless you. ) Some can be snarky and nasty just for the hell of it. Unfortunately people love to hide behind the anonymity of the Internet, but that’s okay because Karma is a biatch.
  4. Sometimes people will cross our paths in this business we were never meant to associate with in the first place. When we cut those ties, this may leave a bad taste in the other party’s mouth. You must stay true to you and you’re writing.
