Presenting: Caitlyn O'Leary


Welcome to Craving Erotic Romance Blogspot.


Today 4/14/14 we’re presenting Author: Caitlyn O’Leary


1) Have you always wanted to be an author? Since reading Trixie Belden back when I was 10 years old. 

2) What genre(s) do you write?  I write erotica, Menage a Trois, Happily Ever After.  What’s the point of writing a book without a happily ever after?

3)  Have you ever self published?  Just the books I used to give out to friends and family in elementary and middle school.

4) Who or what inspired you to write your first book?   Sophie Oak.  I loved her Bliss Colorado and Siren in the City series.

5) How many hours in a day might you write? I work a full time job, so I probably write 2-3 hours each day, and wake up in the middle of the night and get in another 1-2 hours each night.

6) Are you a plotter or a pantster? I never write an outline.  Since I’m writing a series, I have an idea of the characters I want to write about before I end the previous book.  Once I have the characters in mind, they write their own story.  For real, the story kind of just comes out of my fingertips onto the computer screen.  It’s really kind of weird.

7) Do you ever find yourself slipping away and becoming so immersed in your  story it affects how you relate to others? If I’m writing a really strong heroine, I’ll end up being a lot more blunt at work.  If I’m writing a more submissive heroine, I find myself deferring to others a lot more than I normally would.

8) Are you in any of your books? In one of my books I have one of my characters describe one of my worst dates ever, as her own. 

9) What do your friends and family have to say about you writing? Because it is erotica, I have mixed results.  The funniest is that I have my 80 year old father anxiously awaiting the print version of my first “dirty” book to come out.  He’s got everyone in his retirement community waiting to buy copies.  Apparently they’re all excited to read it.  Thanksgiving this year is going to be really interesting.

10) Please share an excerpt from one of your books or a WIP that totally spoke to you when you put the words down on paper.

From:Trusting Chance


         Chance leaned back on the dock, admiring how clear the day was now that the clouds had disbursed.  “Did you ever consider the possibility that you might have an inferiority complex?  That somehow your parents fucked you over into believing you weren’t worthy of anything good?  So whenever something bad happens, you blow it out of proportion and let it justify your underlying belief system?”

         “Jesus, Chance, are you planning on putting out a shingle?  I already have a shrink.”  Sam took a long pull from his beer and reached for another.

         “Nope.  I just figure it’s time I said my piece, because this is important, and I want it to work.  You and Josie fit because you both come from the same fucked up childhoods.  You can really relate to one another, and help one another.  I fit, because I can lighten the mood. You both need me.  Not to mention the fact that neither of us is going to let the other one have her to himself.”

         “There is that.  You try to take her away from me, and they’ll never find your body.”  Sam said in a pretty serious tone that made Chance laugh.

         “You could try, brother.  You could try,” he said, still laughing.

         Sam looked over at him, and realized it might not be as easy to take down Chance as he would like to think.  “Yeah, yeah, I’ve thought about why I have a glass half empty outlook,” Sam admitted.

         “No, you don’t have that at all.  You always see the good in others.  You see the good in a lot of different situations.  But when it comes to yourself, you have a broken mirror.  You, Son, don’t think you are good, nor do you think you deserve anything good.” Chance paused, letting his words sink in.  “Do you want Josie?”

         “I’ve had Josie,” Sam said with a great deal of satisfaction.

         “Do you want Josie for the long haul?” Chance asked.  Sam took another swig from his beer, trying to picture his very long life without Josie in it.

         “Yeah, I want her.  But I don’t know how I can do it.”

         “Remember how we were talking one day at a time?” Chance asked.

         “Yeah, I remember.”

         “Try this.  Spend some of the money,” Chance urged.  “And you have to spend it on something for yourself, something that you want.  Something that really matters to you.  Something selfish!”

         “You’re sounding a little like my shrink,” Sam warned.

“Jesus,” Chance opened another one of his Belgian ales and took a long pull.
