Uniform Fetish Anthology Blog Hop - Manlove Edition!

What was the hardest part in writing this story?

Getting it written.  When the call came out for this anthology, I had a vague idea for an EMT story, but I was working on another story and I figured everyone would be writing about EMTs so I shuffled it aside.  A month went by and the deadline was coming.  There was about two weeks left when my friend, Jacey Holbrand, convinced me I had to write this story that had been dodging me.  So I sat down and wrote Rain and Promises in about four days.

Generally, how long does it take you to complete a book from idea to handing it over to your publisher?

As I said in the last question, it took me about four days to write Rain and Promises.  Usually it can take me about 2-3 weeks to write a story, but this year (2015) has definitely started out slow for me.  I’ve been stuck on the same story for over a month and it’s getting frustrating.

Do you ever use someone in your life as a sounding board for ideas or are you a lone wolf?

No, I’m definitely not a lone wolf.  I have a very good friend, and fellow author, Jacey Holbrand, to bounce ideas off.  We usually get together a couple of times a month to talk about story plots. 

Can you tell us a little about your heroes, Ryan and Adam?

Ryan is an EMT and Adam definitely has some naughty fantasies over that uniform.  But I love throwing the emotional twist into my stories so in this case, it’s their one year anniversary and Adam is throwing a surprise.  On his way to pick up their favorite cake, he gets into a horrific car accident, and it’s Ryan who is called to the scene.  You can imagine walking up to an accident, seeing this twisted mangled wreck of a car, and slowly realizing that the love of your life is inside it!   

 In Rain and Promises, Adam and Ryan are about to celebrate their one-year anniversary. When Ryan's latest call brings him to the scene of a car wreck, he's shocked still by whose life is at stake.
