Welcome to BRB, everyone! It is January 30th, which means we've reached the month end. Next it will be Valentines then St. Patrick's Day and so on. The time is just flying. How are your New Years resolutions coming? Mine are almost on track. My last guest of the month is a very talented author, a lady that thrives to write some serious futuristic erotic romance. So, let's get the interview started. What genre do your currently write, Stormie? And, is there a genre you'd like to write, but haven't tried yet?
My published stories are all Sci-Fi (Futuristic) Erotic Romance. I’ve written Contemporary and Paranormal. I would love to be published in any of those genres.
Many authors use a nom de plume, and they may use one opposite to their own sex. Do you think an author's sex or sexual orientation should dictate what genre they write?
I think we should each write what makes us happy. I think we should write what is in our heads. I think we should listen to our muse. Enough said.
Some authors have issues with character development, writer's block, plot summary etc. What is the biggest challenge you face when writing? How do you overcome the problem?
My writer’s block is simply worry over everything I have to do in my life interfering with actual writing. To deal with the problem I write down what I need to do and promise if I just make my word count I’ll deal with the issues later.
What has been the single most successful marketing tool you've used to date?
I really wish I knew. I like to stay in a community of writers so I can hear about blog hops or other promo ops. I have a blog as well as a Facebook and Twitter account. I write once a month on a blog which hosts about thirty other authors. These things all lead to word of mouth. So, I suppose word of mouth is the most successful tool.
What are you currently reading?I am in a rereading phase. I just reread Mayan Inferno by A. S. Fenichel.
How do you measure success?
I measure success in terms of whether or not I achieved my goal. The success of each goal is measured individually.
Just for fun–
What is your favourite drink?
Daily: Water As Needed: Rum and Coke
Are you a cat or dog person?
Love or Lust?
I want both. (Greedy, I know.)
If you could spend the day with any famous author, who would it be? And, why?
Octavia Butler if she was still alive. I remember reading her stories and thinking. What a fabulous imagination.
If you could indulge free of any consequences, what would be your ultimate sexual fantasy?
It would involve a private tropical island and a few hot male action stars.
Niki is captured by hostile aliens after Earth is invaded. Once a soldier, she is now a slave. She is sold to the highest bidder, and then lost in a game of cards to a tall Ordanian spaceship captain, who claims to have been sent to rescue her. They work together to survive the dangers of the United Universe, while Niki battles her desire for the only man to ever enflame her mind, body and soul.
Captain Rhine’s mission is to reunite the Earth woman with her family. Outmaneuvering beast shifters and a crazed stalker are the very least he is willing to do to keep her by his side. Her touch ignites his passion. Her scent drives his lust. Her strength eases his soul even as she challenges him every step of the way. In the end, Rhine understands, the biggest battle is for her heart.
The following excerpt is for those readers who are 18 and over only.

He leaned over her. His stomach muscles bunched and rolled above her. She opened her mouth, barely stopping her tongue from peeking out and tasting him. She looked up instead. He wrapped the rope around her wrists, apparently finding it easy to manipulate the thick cord. He fastened the other end around the top horizontal solid bar of the headboard.
He ran his hands softly over her inner arms. She shivered. She tensed as he grabbed her face a little more roughly. She looked into his eyes. Anticipation wound tightly within her. What would he do next?
“You have two dresses in my bag, correct?” he asked close to her mouth.
She hesitated. He squeezed her face a little tighter.
“Yes.” She stared him in the eye.
“Good.” He let her go. He moved down so that he sat between her legs, which had opened despite her desire not to appear too eager. His cock rested against the juncture of her legs. She could feel its mass through the layers of her skirt and leggings.
He sat back, grabbed her bodice and ripped it straight down the middle. She gasped. Shock held her still for a moment. Then her pussy gushed. This was just wrong. The man had tied her to a bed and literally ripped her top off and she was creaming her panties. Her head fell back and she tugged on the ties around her wrists. She was secured tightly.
Her attention snapped back to Rhine as she felt two large hands cup her breasts. They teased, squeezed and rolled her tits and she enjoyed every minute of it.
“Found some new toys.” She panted and suppressed a groan.
“Mine,” he said. He stared at her breasts hungrily. He slid down her body.
“I don’t know about—” She gasped as he sucked her right nipple into his mouth. Her eyes rolled up into her head for a moment.
“Okay, you can borrow them for a while.” If he kept up the delicious suction, she’d be begging him to try it a little lower in no time.
