**AUTHOR PEEK** Interview with Author, Ashlynne Laynne
Before we get started talking about your writing, tell us a little about yourself, where you’re from, what you do for a living (if you’re not a fulltime writer) what hobbies you have, etc. Whatever you’d like to share.
Ashlynne: I’m a wife and mother of one son. I write part-time and work a full time job outside of the home. I enjoy reading, cooking, and watching horror movies with my husband.
1. How did you get started writing?
Ashlynne: I’ve been writing, in some shape or form, since I was eight years old.
2. What genre(s) do you write in and why?
Ashlynne: I write erotic paranormal and contemporary romance. I’m a romantic at heart and enjoy building love stories for my readers.
3. What is your favorite part of writing?
Ashlynne: I think any author would agree with me when I say, typing “THE END.”
4. What is your least favorite part of writing?
Ashlynne: The editing process is definitely my least favorite part.
5. Where do you get the ideas for your stories?
Ashlynne: The Progeny Series started with a dream about the man who would later become my half-blooded vampire, Ascher Rousseau.
6. What is it that makes your writing different from all the others in your genre?
Ashlynne: My motto for writing erotic romance is “Hard sex mixed with harder love.” I tend to deal more with the emotional side of a relationship and love scenes, rather than the physical manifestations. I think this brings more depth to my writing.
7. Are you an avid reader? When you do read someone else’s writing, what is your favorite genre?
Ashlynne: I would not consider myself an avid reader, and I tend to stay away from books that deal with vampires while I’m writing. When I am between projects, I love most sub-genres of romance.
8. Tell us about your next book & when is it being published?
Ashlynne: I am currently writing book four of my Progeny series, an erotic short story and book one of my upcoming Rocker Series.
