Today we welcome one half of the duo Dirk and Kam to the Blog…Please welcome Kam! Check out their books on multiple formats below.
1) Tell us about yourself.
(Kam) I’m one-half of a dynamic writing team with my husband, Dirk. Also, I’m a full time mother of two highly energetic children – a teenager and a preschooler.
2) What do you do when you are not writing? Day job?
(Kam) Right now, motherhood keeps me pretty active. However in my free time, I read a ton and blog.
3) How did you choose the genre you write in?
(Kam) Dirk and I are very frisky individuals so writing romance short stories wasn’t a far stretch for us. We decided early one we wouldn’t write strictly heterosexual stories because we truly feel everyone deserves to love whomever they choose.
4) When did you start writing?
(Kam) We started writing down our fantasies about 3.5 years ago and then decided to submit to a publisher. The rest is history.
5) Biggest influences as a reader/writer?
(Kam) Dirk is my inspiration. That man can dirty talk like a pro!
6) Is anything in your writing based on real life experiences or purely all imagination? Where do your ideas come from?
(Kam) All of our stories have some truth to them. It could be a solitary scene or the complete story. We feel the personal touch helps readers connect with the characters and story more.
7) Planner or Panster?
(Kam) Dirk lives to have a plan and I like to type whatever pops into my head. J
8) What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? What has been the best compliment?
(Kam) The feedback has been amazing on our stories. A common “negative” comment is people wish they were longer. However due to word count restrictions, our stories must end at around 6,000 words. Future ones might be longer though. That revelation has thrilled many.
Consensus: It’s had to find a complete, sexy story and we do it well.
9) Tell us about your book (s). Favorite thing? Hardest issue to overcome?
(Kam) We have six books published so far. Five are through Changeling Press/ Razor’s Edge Press. One, “Dreams really Do Come True” was self-published. What I love about our stories is the couples seem relatable. I love the humor we blend in with the sexiness.
10) Advice for aspiring writers?
(Kam) If you don’t get a contract offer the first time out, DON’T lose hope. Many famous writers were rejected multiple times before they saw success. So breathe and keep on trying!
11) Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?
(Kam) Thank you for all your support. You have no idea how much it thrills us our stories are received so well. Stay tuned because we are busy on a few story ideas we hope to get released later this year.
