Interview with Keira Andrews

1.         Tell us a little bit about yourself. How does your day go? What keeps you writing?

 I work full time as a marketing copywriter for a large charity, so I tend to do most of my fiction writing on the weekends when I can switch gears. What keeps me writing is the seemingly endless stories that blossom in my brain and proceed to consume it until I get them out onto paper (or more accurately, into a Word document). I certainly hope the stories will be endless, as I love writing and using my imagination.
2.         What brought you to writing erotica? What do you love about it?
I’ve always enjoyed erotica. I confess that when I was 13, I’d pilfer my older sister’s bodice rippers from her bookshelf! They were often about rogue pirates and were very educational. I’m a sucker for romance, and erotica just takes it that one step further and is more emotionally satisfying to me than PG-13 tales. The sex is obviously satisfying in its own way, but it’s really the combination of romance and erotica that I love.
3.         What are you working on now?
I’m currently working on a contemporary spy novel about a hardened agent who falls for the young man he’s been ordered to kill. It’s a new genre for me, and it’s been a ton of fun branching out.
4.         What is your—or your character’s—favorite erotic book? Sexy movie? Sex toy?
Hmm. The characters in my last book, The Station, lived in the 1800s, so I’ll answer that one. Y Tu Mama Tambien springs to mind, as does The Big Easy. I’m pleading the fifth on the sex toy!
5.         What’s the one thing you’ve always wanted to do? The top thing on your personal bucket list?
That’s a great question. Travel is always at the top of my to-do list, but I’m not sure there’s one place in particular I want to visit more than any other. I do want to go to all four Grand Slam tennis events (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open), but not sure if that’s number one. I’ll have to ponder that question!
6.         What’s your personal romantic (or erotic) fantasy?
To sail around the world (never hitting any bad weather, of course) with the person I love, exploring new places and each other. We’d just need to avoid those pirates, as I don’t think they’re as sexy in real life as they are in fiction.
