I write: Erotic and dark, sexy fiction – with a twist. It’s been described as ‘Unexpected. Interesting. Sexy.’ My female characters take a non-traditional route to their happy ever after via the master of all lovers, Ramon Mendez.
I’m from:Somewhere other than here I think. Born and raised in country Victoria, I now live in Melbourne’s green wedge. It’s the closest thing to country I can get while living in the city.
Three words to describe me: Unexpected? Interesting? Sexy? My husband would just say ‘Pain in A*’.
At home I cook: Quickly. Too busy writing. Used to eat all whole foods. Now a can is good. I am a vegaquarian though (that’s a vegetarian who eats fish – nothing with legs – except prawns – but they don’t have brains – do they??).
My worst habit is:Nail biting – been doing it since I was 12 and can’t seem to kick it.
It’s a bit daggy but I love: DISCO MUSIC. Yup. Cleaning day is all about Ami Stewart, The Village People and Saturday Night Fever at my house. Get your glitter and flares on! Get down with a mop!
My first job was: Awful. Cleaning toilets in an engineering factory. I used to waste time reading the porn magazines left in the dunny’s. (I know – but I’m an erotic fiction writer – what do you expect?)
Saving for: Saving??? Ha – don’t make me laugh. Writers don’t earn enough to save. My beloved has promised Miss 8 a trip to Disneyland though – maybe when she’s 33.
Three things people might not know about me are:
- I’m a qualified astrologer. A proper one. I can tell you everything you already know about yourself.
- If it wasn’t for Margareta Osborn, I might not be here.
- I almost daren’t admit this, but, I’m not a big fan of happy endings (cringing with my arms over my face among the howls of protest. Sorry folks!)
Plotter or panster: Used to be panster, now I plot like a demon. Saves a heck of a lot of time!
I would most like to meet: Ramon Mendez. Anytime soon. I’m ready and waiting (blows kiss).
When I was young I wanted to be:A writer. Go figure. I wanted to write for Dolly magazine. I had high aspirations.
Latest project: The Yearning is a dark, sensual tale of forbidden first love. A young teenage girl lures her charismatic teacher into an illicit affair, the consequences of which haunt them both until they meet again twenty-five years later. (WARNING – no happy endings with this one, but it WILL get you thinking and talking.) Published by Simon & Schuster. Ebook released 1 April 2013, print book released 1 May 2013. http://books.simonandschuster.com.au/Yearning/Kate-Belle/9781922052636
