Interview With Lily-Ann Johnson:
Tell us about the books you’ve published so far. Can you tell us about some of your upcoming novels?
I am currently just finished a Valentines story for the Military Romance anthology Cupid Wore Dogtags. My story is Valentine’s Hart.
I am also writing a story Seamlessly Tied for Suit Porn 4 for LLS 2022 that will be part of my Seamlessly Erotic Fairytales retellings. I have two books bookmarked for Heart of Teufel Hundens series.
What was the moment you knew you wanted to be an author?
I always wrote poems and short stories but I knew I wanted to be a published romance author when I had so many ideas in my head they just had to get out. Plus who doesn’t love a happy ending.
What are some things you do to overcome doubts about your writing?
I have a circle of friends that I bounce ideas off. They are honest and if I have questions about my writing or the flow of the things they keep me centered and give me the kick I need to get back at it.
Have any actual life experiences reflected in your writing?
I do put real life situations in my books. The crab scene from Blondies Hero actually happened but it was no where near as romantic. Hubby left me on beach getting attacked by crabs while he ran to safety.
Who was your easiest character to write about and why? What was your hardest and why?
Easiest was (Blondie) Mary-Alice because I put a lot of myself into her. Easiest male would be Jazz from Seamlessly Wishful ,as I based him off a real life friend.
Hardest would have to be Rich from Nikki’s Marine because he didn’t want to be happy at first.
