What was your favourite book as a child/teenager?
This book called “O The Red Rose Tree.” I checked it out of the library every other week.
Who was the first author or what was the first book you read that introduced you to the genre that you most enjoy writing in?
I started writing erotic fiction before I’d ever read any. (But I guess I’ve always liked “dirty books”.) In fact, I published some pieces before I had a chance to really delve into reading in my genre. (That may sound nuts but I have six kids and reading was next to impossible for years.)
Do you believe in love at first sight? And if so have you ever been so afflicted? Did you do anything about it? (Did you go for it?)
Yes. Or maybe infatuation at first site. Love takes longer to bloom. But I do remember once when I was in high school being at a party where I saw a boy across the room and our eyes met. It was magical. He came over and asked me to dance. We dated for many months after that. I’m sure I thought I loved him at the time. Lol.
Is there a particular word you overuse or writing technique that your editor(s) ride you about?
“That.” At this point I edit it out myself before I submit my manuscript, but in the early drafts I let myself go “that” crazy.
Have you ever suffered from writer’s block? (Or do you even believe in it?) If so, how were you able to overcome it?
I’m not sure about being completely blocked. Stumped, yes. For example, today I got to a scene that I haven’t fully fleshed out in my head. Most of the time the words just flow, but sometimes it feels forced. When that happens I either muddle through, knowing I’ll have more work on that scene later, or I let it percolate and work on something else. I usually have several WIPs at various stages. When I’m not feeling one, I can usually fly with another one.
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
Right where I am. In the Southern U.S.A. We have a farm that feels like we’re out in the middle of nowhere, yet we’re four minutes from all the conveniences of a charming little town on the water. It’s heavenly.
If you could bring one of your own characters to life, who would it be and why?
Charmaine from the Daddy’s Girl Series. Her book will be the third in that series, and I just love her. She’s a spoiled brat with a huge trust fund and major Daddy issues. She’s the kind of girl I’d like to get into trouble with.
What are you reading right now?
“Take Me, Break Me” by Cari Silverwood. And I can’t wait to start “The Glass Wives” by my longtime Twitter friend, Amy Sue Nathan.
When you read, do you prefer a stand-alone or a series?
I hardly ever read series, but once I fall for an author’s work – I fall hard and read everything they write. Murder mysteries are my favorite, but I’d never try to write one.
If you were to do a reality show, which one would it be?
Survivor. I’m a big fan, never miss an episode. In fact, the hero in Book Two of this series will probably look a lot like James – remember him? The grave digger? But I’d be voted out the first week because of my big mouth.
What is the craziest, most exciting, or most dangerous thing you’ve ever done?
Oh, how I wish I could tell you…
Name a celebrity, athlete, musician, etc. you’d most like to get naughty with.
Adam Levine. The man has an incredible instrument.
What is your favourite way to promote or connect with fans?
Twitter. Love it.
Gone with the Wind.
Hawaii or Vegas with my husband.
I’m so not a car person. I don’t have a dream car, except maybe any car that comes with a driver. I much prefer to ride than drive.
Favourite Ice Cream Flavour?
Pralines & Cream from Baskin Robbins. Divine.
What can readers look forward to next?
I have a story called “Subterfudge” in the “Whip It Up” Anthology from Total E-Bound. It’s a tasty tale of one sub’s attempt to learn to cook for her Dom. There’s lots of sexy fun in the kitchen in this one. You can learn more here. (link: http://www.total-e-bound.com/product.asp?P_ID=2329)
Please tell us about your newest release.
I write about BDSM relationships, and there is a “style” of D/s relationship that I adore above all others – that of Daddy Doms and their little girls. Now, I don’t mean “little” in regard to age play necessarily, though that can be a part of these relationships too. But I mean a D/s relationship where the Daddy Dom adores and cares for his girl, and he is at the center of her world. Of course he has to keep her in line so he will punish her when she needs it.
I realized I had a lot to say about these pairings so I wrote “Daddy Morebucks” and planned six more books in this series. Now that the kids are finally back in school, I can get back to writing them. Whew!

Blurb:From the moment she laid eyes upon him, Marley knew in her heart that James was not just another client, and the difference wasn’t even the large sum of money he offered in return for a single night of submission. No, what set him apart was the fact that when she called James “daddy”, it was her own heart which beat faster and her own body which ached with need.
After that night, Marley does her best to put all thought of him behind her, using the huge payday he provided to get on her feet again and start over… until James knocks on her door and walks right back into her life. He makes her a simple offer: if she will live with him and submit to him whenever he wishes, he will provide for her every desire.
Even before she accepts his offer, though, Marley knows that what she truly wants is not money or clothing or even a fancy new car. What she longs for is a daddy who will give his little girl what she really needs… a daddy who will spank her bare bottom when she is naughty, tie her up and take her any way he pleases, and then cuddle her until she falls asleep in his arms. Can she dare to hope that James will be that daddy?
Locking her eyes with his, she slipped out of her chair onto the floor and crawled on her hands and knees around to his side of the table. Setting her hands on his knee, she attempted to push back his chair. But it didn’t go as smoothly as she had planned. The chair didn’t budge.
“What are you doing?” He wore a bemused expression.
“I was going to ask you if I could please worship your cock, Daddy.”
“Sir,” he corrected. “And I will be the one to tell you what to do, young lady. You are out of line.”
Marley sat back on her heels, deflated. “Oh. Sorry. Sir.”
“My, my. You are a little slut. I think you’ve earned a spanking for that little stunt. Come up here and lie across my lap.”
Obediently, Marley draped herself over his lap, her bottom over his knee.
Slowly, he pulled her dress up around her waist and yanked her panties down to just above her knees.
“Marley, do you know why I’m disciplining you?”
“Yes, Sir. Because I was naughty.” Her voice sounded strange since she was upside down.
“It is because you are to do what I ask of you, not take the initiative.”
“Yes, Sir. I’m sorry, Sir.”
“The rules were explained to you before you got here?”
“Yes, Sir,” she lied. She didn’t have any idea she wasn’t supposed to do that. Hell, she thought he would like what she did. But she’d lie there for a spanking for five G’s.
“Then you have earned a punishment for your impudence. Do you understand?”
“Yes, Sir.” She steeled herself for whatever was to come.
She flinched when his bare hand slammed down on her naked rear end. Another blow rained down, eliciting a cry from her lips. She clenched her muscles.
“Don’t tense up. Relax. Ease into the pain. It will make it easier.”
“Yes, Sir.” Her voice a whimper, she took a deep breath and tried to do as he instructed.
More swats landed on her ass. She imagined it must be getting red by now.
He was right. Not resisting was helpful. Embracing the sting helped her ride the wave of pain as he smacked her posterior.
She moaned under his hand and was grateful when he ceased the spanking and began rubbing her aching cheeks. Gently, he slid his hands over her skin, massaging her hot globes, easing her distress.
“Mmm, thank you, Sir,” she purred, disheveled and drunk with endorphins.
“You’re welcome,” he said quietly.
His fingers dipped down and brushed across her pussy lips. She strained, wanting him to touch her.

A former psychologist, Normandie has always been fascinated by human behavior. She loves writing quirky characters that are all too human. “I’m interested in the kind of relationships people have in real life. So I write about my characters’ messy, unpredictable, and inexplicable journeys to love.”
If there were another 5 hours in the day, Normandie would spend more time on fiber arts and needle-pointing. Instead, she’s a sports junkie who’s addicted to Twitter and loves the color pink. She lives on a farm with a passel of kids, her athlete husband, and her pet pig who’s crazy for Red Bull.
