Author Spotlight: R.B. O’Brien

Lilah E. Noir

avatarThere was a long hiatus in the Author Spotlight Thursdays but now we’re finally back on track. My next guest after the break is a special friend of mine and a fellow Wicked Pens Writer but that is not the reason she is here. R.B. O’Brien is a lot more than an erotic romance author. Her writing, characters, and style feel alive on the e-reader screen /and hopefully someday the paper/. She is emotional, passionate and creative, a dancer, thinker, Shakespeare and arts lover. And as you can tell from her interview R.B. is refreshingly honest about herself, her work and characters. Today you’d get a chance to spend some time with her, get to know her mind and her books of the Thorne, Natalie’s Edge and Imogen series. 

About-RB

Lilah: Ms. O’Brien is back with more exquisite pain, angst and pleasure for her two leading characters, William and Rose. Hello, R.B…

Fifty Grey Shades

FELIX THE FOX MYSTERIES

Fifty Grey Shades

This story is a product of prodding from Julia, my wife and inspiration. Her insistence that “sex sells” has led me to do a market research into the currently highest-trending mass-market erotica (dreadful stuff, which left me feeling dirty).

I give you now the result, my own take on this popular trope with a uniquely Egretian bent.

The young woman sitting in front of me was scowling in apparent frustration. Rather plain-looking, her hair was unkempt as if she went to sleep with it wet. She introduced herself as Antistia Chalybeia, daughter of Sextus Antistius Chalybeius. She was here to ‘interview’ me as she said, for a prospective job. I gave her the contract with my standard terms, and she proceeded to go over them with the most pernickety fastidiousness. She kept biting her lip as she read.

“What about this?” she pointed at a paragraph.

“What about it?” I…

Author Spotlight: Shelby Kent-Stewart

Great interview by Lilah E. Noir of my favorite author and friend, Shelby Kent-Stewart 🙂

Lilah E. Noir

Today in the Author Spotlight I have a very special lady as a guest. I’m thrilled to introduce to you Ms. Shelby Kent-Stewart, political speech writer, sex-positive feminist, animals right advocate and so much more. Shelby also writes smart and sexy erotic romance with a dynamic plot, crisp dialogue, and fabulous characters.

2016 - 1Lilah: Welcome to our spotlight, Shelby. You warn the Internet passer-by on your Twitter page not to ask about your transition from political speech writing to erotic romance. Still, it is a way too fascinating question to be passed by. What attracted you to that genre that many think of as “cheap housewife porn”? When and how did you start writing erotic romance?

Shelby: First of all, thanks so much for the invitation, Lilah. As you know, I’m a great admirer of yours and honored you thought of me for your spotlight. Now to these delicious questions…

Notwithstanding that I…
