Storyteller Saturday Interview: Heather Geoffries

Welcome to Heather who is joining us for a chat today. She talks romance and getting creative!

What’s your name and where do you come from?
Hello. My name is Heather Geoffries and I live in a small town in NorthEast Ohio Near the shores of Lake Erie. During the sweltering summer weather I can drive to the beach and in the winter we have lake effect snow which is heavier and wetter.

Tell us a bit about your latest release.
The story, Nordic Prince, takes place on a cruise by the same name. It follows Dr. Steven Mills, who is less than pleased to be on the pleasure cruise. Then he meets Erik and has an unforgettable night and discovers why he has been unlucky in love.

Where do you get your inspiration from?
My husband and I have been happily married for almost a decade and we are very creative. Plus, I have a good imagination.

How do you go about creating the perfect "Swoon" worthy man?
I think a sexy man should be manly. Many of my friends like the “pretty” men and that’s great but I like a man who is more tough and hard. I like him to be hard working. I also don’t like a man who is a jerk. Also he has a brain in his head. Yeah, I know. I’m not picky or anything. heh

What’s your biggest turn on?
There are so many factors outside of bed play that turn me on. A nice body, a genuine smile, a man who can is my equal in verbal sparring. In the bedroom the thing that probably trips my trigger the most is when a man is right on the cusp of climax and is struggling to hold back.

Do you have a favourite character from your books? Why are they your favourite?
Well, there are days I can understand Steven and I like Erik but honestly my favourite character was Amanda, Steven’s sister. She’s very brash, blunt and saucy. I liked her so well that I wrote a story about her for the “Aphrodite Island” series at Champagne books. I just recently submitted her story.

What’s the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?
There have been a couple times that my husband dedicated an entire day to spoiling me. He started by getting my favourite breakfast, took me to get an hour massage, then got me a mani-pedi and then took me to a romantic comedy that I had wanted to see. He finished the night with a special dinner and set up a scented bubble bath with candle light. It was a very relaxing and wonderful day.

What do you do to get in the mood for writing love scenes? Candles, music etc?
Mostly I wait until everybody goes to bed and take advantage of the blessed silence but occasionally I play 

some varying romantic songs depends on my character’s mood.

What do you do when you’re not writing?
Stress out and go crazy? I am a full time mom of 2 very rambunctious children. I am in love with my best friend and try to ensure we spend time together-just the 2 of us. I am a Junior working on my BA in Psychology. There are many other little things I’m involved in but the point is that I usually am running around like a chicken with its head cut off.

Tell us something that might surprise our readers.
My husband writes these stories with me. The ideas and erotic scenes are a product of both our imaginations and kinks. He is far better at writing the sweet romantic stuff than I am. I can do kink and I can do angry/bitter/fighting scenes but he is the one with the romantic touch.
And yes, he helped me write this little M/M erotic romance. *g*

When Doctor Steven Mills is dragged onto The Nordic Prince for fun in the sun by his sister, Amanda, he is certain he will be miserable. Until he meets Erik.
Erik is fun, exciting and just what the doctor ordered. Some drinks and dancing with him are more enticing to Steven than any date he’s gone on with women. Before long, the two escape the busy dance floor for the quiet—and private—spa where Eric works on Steven’s body with very skilled hands. Steven is overcome with an onslaught of new emotions and sensations and has the best sexual experience of his life.
Now Steven must wrestle with new feelings and desires and make a decision that could change his life forever.

Purchase Nordic Prince from Amazon and ARe. You can find out more about Heather on her blog and Facebook page.
