Tuesday chat with Lilly Cain

Hi folks! I couldn’t be more pleased to introduce my latest guest, author Lilly Cain! I love her Confederacy series with Carina (the third one comes out later this month!) and she’s great to up-and-comers like my self to boot! So nice, in fact, she’s GIVING AWAY a copy of one of her latest release Return to Me, to one lucky commenter! Great or what? Here’s her bio…

Lilly Cain is an erotic romance author, published with Red Sage Publishing, Carina Press and independently. A mother of two, and a lover of coffee, vodka and chocolate, she writes stories of sizzling erotic romances where the lovers aren’t always human. Most recently she published her first indie short novella – Return To Me – a Celtic paranormal.

Without further ado…the interview!
1.      Who was your first author crush and why?
Mercedes Lackey, although it was a tough competition between her and Anne McAffrey. I loved their fantasy worlds – so well built yet so simple. I wanted to live there, flying with dragons or speaking to spirit horses. I still do.
2.      What was your first clue you were a writer? Was it a long journey or a short one? Have you always known?
I loved English class so much I wrote one of my sisters papers – way back when she was in Jr. High. She got an A, and was terribly embarrassed when her teacher wanted to enter it in a competition. I told her to go for it! From then on I wrote as many stories as possible.
3.      What are some of your writer-esque quirks (do you have to be in your pjs? always facing the door? Do people look at you after something funny happens and say ‘that’s going in a book, isn’t it?’)?
I’ve had a few people give me strange looks, but it’s usually after something I say, like – that would be a great way to dispose of a body. As for quirks, I like to write with my laptop on my lap, sitting in my big overstuffed brown chair, rather than at the very nice, large desk with its ergonomic chair just a few steps away.
4.      Finish this joke: A clown, a priest and a writer all get onto an elevator…
The elevator shuts down, halfway between floors, trapping them. The clown says “My God! Is that you, Father Cedric? Please pray to God and get us out of here!”
The Priest replies “Yes, my son, it’s me. But the Father must want you to have some time to think, and perhaps to talk with me about what’s happening in your life, or we wouldn’t be here.”
The clown sighs and sadly admits, “I’ve been a bad man, Father.  I’ve become a thief.” He begins to pull objects out of his clown outfit: a laptop, a giant chocolate bar and a dozen Starbucks cards, and finally a large bottle of vodka.
The Priest replies.  “You will have to take it all back to the rightful owners.” He turns to the writer who has been watching the whole thing. “Since there’s no privacy and you’ve heard this poor man’s confession, perhaps you would like to say something as well?”
“Well, I’ve just come up with a new way to hide two bodies while sitting in an elevator…”
5.      Speed round: Without giving it too much thought, pick which one you favour over the other: 
Chocolate                   or         flowers
Talk                        or         Text
