Q: Why the change from writing ménage under Alicia White to writing Man Love under Olivia Black?
A: I love writing ménage, but I’m growing and changing as an author. I felt inspired to write the Silver Bullet series. One day I sat down and mapped out all the characters, describing what they looked like and what their back story was. When I was finished, I sat back and realized that I had almost a dozen books that I needed to write. I immediately opened my laptop and boom the first few books were done. The rest is history, I now write under two pen names.
Q: Do you have a favorite M/M author?
A: I’ve been a huge fan of alternative romance for many years. The names that pop into my head are Carol Lynne, Lynn Hagen, Stormy Glenn, Anitra Lynn McLeod, and AJ Jarrett. I have a collection of their books sitting on my shelf along with many more from other talented authors.
Q: You’ve written a couple of series with other Siren Ménage Everlasting Authors, would you like to collaborate on projects with Siren Man Love Authors as well?
A: I love writing with other authors. The two experiences I’ve had so far have been very rewarding. Writing is generally considered a solitary activity and I like working with others. It would be wonderful to be asked to be a part of a Man Love series.
Q: How do you make the love scenes you write so incredibly hot?
A: I have to be honest, I watch porn. I use the scenes as inspiration and it really does make the scenes in my books hotter! There is one star that I’m a fan of, Jesse Jackman. I watch everything he stars in and he’s the inspiration for a character in a future book. I’ll let the readers guess which one.
Q: Most of your books are paranormal stories, what attracted you to writing fantasy versus contemporary?
