I have to tell you, when I realized I’d completely forgotten to post Andrya Bailey‘s Writer Wednesday interview last week, I felt so bad. SO BAD. I was on a crowded bus full of Girl Scouts headed to NYC when that nagging suspicion I’d forgotten something hit me. Luckily, it wasn’t my daughter, or our luggage.
But it was a blog post, and Ms. Bailey has my profound apologies. Luckily for me, she’s been incredibly gracious about the whole oops, so I am tickled to bring you this Special Edition of Writer Wednesday – on Thursday.
Come meet the ever-so-understanding Andrya Bailey, and learn a bit about her and her books!
Which type of romance do you love most, and why?
I like contemporary romance, but I’m also drawn to historical romance and fairy tales. Magic and seduction fill our lives with passion!
Name one interesting thing you learned in researching/writing your last book:
My upcoming book, the second novel in the Olympian Love trilogy, is set in Greece. While researching Greek mythology, I came across the bouquet of Persephone, which was a bouquet with the flowers Persephone was gathering when she was kidnapped by the mighty Hades. This was a nice touch to insert into one of the scenes in the romance.
What fellow romance author do you recommend reading, and why?
Sheila Kell, the writer of the HIS novels. They’re fun, sexy, with steamy scenes and interesting characters, especially the alpha Hamilton brothers.
What’s your favorite romance novel of all time, and why?
If I have to single out only one, I’ll say Wuthering Heights, by Emily Brontë, although I have several favorites.
Even though it doesn’t have a happy ending, I find Heathcliff’s love for Catherine sickly passionate and full of devotion.
A Bit on Olympian Passion (book 1):
Sabrina loves everything about Greek mythology and is excited to be accepted for an internship at the Fine Arts Museum in Houston. When she meets the handsome Greek archaeologist Nikos Soulis, who will spend two months at the museum, she falls head over heels for him. But the sexy professor seems too busy and already spoken for… so why does he insist in helping her with her project? Can Sabrina avoid heartbreak when she is seduced by the hot Olympian god of her dreams?
“A great romance that does justice to the mythological theme.”
