How did you come up with the idea for Her Frozen Stepbrother?
I’ve been fascinated by the unusual story of The Snow Queen and how her mirror did so much damage. There’s no doubt that how we see ourselves influences how we see the world and many of us hate looking in the mirror. I wanted to explore that theme and what it could take to change how someone saw themselves. Of course love had to be a part of that.
What’s next in this series?
I am currently working on Her Stepbrother The Wolf, a retelling of Red Riding Hood. After that comes a Hansel and Gretel rework.
How many books are you going to write in this series?
I’m not positive how long the series will be, but I’m thinking at least six. It’s fun to follow the theme through different stories and different relationships.
Do you think the stepbrother phenomenon is going to peter out? And why now?
No sub-genre niche stays popular forever and the stepbrother theme is no exception. I think readers are enjoying the slightly forbidden aspect of a sexual relationship with a family member but there is always something new coming along. That makes it fun as a reader and a writer. Who knows what I will be able to do with fairytales next.
For me, I’m reworking my mermaid book Waves of Pleasure preparing it for a re-issue and writing the next two books in the series Waves of Desire and Waves of Seduction. It’s ideal for summer writing – and reading.
