Hump Day Interview - V.L. Locey

Today I'd like to welcome V.L. Locey to the blog.

Without further ado...

Who has been your favourite character to write so far?

I tend to fall in love with each character as I'm writing them. If I had to pick just one, it would probably be Victor Kalinski. While he's crass to the nth he also has a tender side that only those who take the time to dig know about. Also, he says what so many of us wish we could say.

What comes to your first, characters or plot? Anything else...

Usually it's characters or a chunk of a plot idea.

Do you keep a file of plot ideas?

Oh yes! I'm constantly jotting things down on paper and adding them to the file.

How do you go about editing? Straight after writing or giving yourself a break?

I like give the story a break then go back to it after a couple weeks.

What's your favourite TV Show and why?

I don't watch a lot of TV but the shows I do watch I'm religious about. Does hockey count? No? Picking just one is going to be so hard. I adore GOT, OITNB, Outlander, The Walking Dead, Dr. Who and Torchwood. Perhaps I'd have to pick Dr. Who/Torchwood because they show us that the universe is vast but love is the one constant that spans the galaxy.

5 people, past or present to have for dinner (round for dinner not actually for dinner).

Oh gosh. My mother, my Pops, John Barrowman, Mark Twain, Mats Zuccarello.

V.L is offering a backlist ebook to one lucky commenter, just answer the question...Which 5 people, past or present, would you have have round for dinner? 

Open Net (Cayuga Cougars #2) - Out August 16

Pre-order Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK

August Miles has the world on a string professionally.

Augie, as his friends and teammates call the unassuming young goaltender, is on the fast track to the pros. The starting goalie for the Cayuga Cougars, he has a year or two in Cayuga to hone his skills and all his career dreams will have come true. Pity his personal life isn’t riding the same high. He’s the only one among his group of friends without that special someone to call his own.

Until he meets Salvatore Castenada at a lakeside party. The attraction is white-hot and more than a little wonderfully overwhelming for the romantically inexperienced goalie. August quickly discovers that Sal is everything he’s dreamed of in a man: mature, settled, sinfully handsome, and filled with gentle humor. Sal is also HIV positive.
Will Sal’s revelation about his status end this budding relationship before it can even begin? Or will the two men be able to handle the challenges life—and a championship run for the Cougars—throws at them?

V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, yoga, belly laughs, walking, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.) She shares her life with her husband, her daughter, one dog, two cats, a flock of assorted domestic fowl, and two Jersey steers.

When not writing spicy romances, she enjoys spending her day with her menagerie in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania with a cup of fresh java in hand. She can also be found online on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and GoodReads.
