Tell me a little about your book.
Snowed in with Santa is a quick, erotic romance read with a holiday twist.  The heroine is a recent college graduate who takes a seasonal job as an elf in the local mall, and the hero is suckered into volunteering as Santa.  This short story is for adults only and contains light elements of bdsm.

What gave you the idea for this particular story? 
Like all my stories, it just popped into my head when I was brainstorming a kinky holiday-themed story.

Is there anything in your story based upon a real life event? If so, tell me about it.
I have friends who live in the Roanoke, VA area, so I choose this area as the location for my story since I’m familiar with it.  The rest of the story is purely fictional.  No, I’ve never worked as an elf in a mall . . . yet. J

Why did you choose to write a story with a Christmas theme?
I wanted to enter an erotic romance short story in a contest Books to Go Now was running.  I didn’t win the gift basket, but I still received a publishing contract.

Do you see special challenges to marketing a book with a seasonal theme?  If so, what are they?
I’m happy to say I had a pretty easy time marketing Snowed in with Santa.  I don’t think the seasonal theme presented any special challenges, however sales have slowed since Christmas.

How long before Christmas did you submit to your publisher?
Two months before Christmas.

How and why did you choose this publisher?
I write science fiction and fantasy under a different name and have published with Books to Go Now in the past.  I think they’re a great e-publisher and I’ve published several ebooks with them now and couldn’t be happier.

What about your book makes it special?
It’s a quick, sexy read with a lot of emotion packed into it.

What does Christmas mean to you?
To me, Christmas means spending lots of time with family and friends. 

What is your favorite Christmas memory?
I think the first Christmas after I had my first child was my favorite Christmas memory.  My husband and I were new parents and in a new house, so we hosted Christmas for the first time.  It was nice to have both sides of the family together under our roof.

What was your favorite stocking stuffer?
Hmm…is it crazy if I say chapstick?  I’m always misplacing mine, so I’m grateful to find a few packs of it (strawberry flavor, please) in my stocking.

What was your favorite Christmas present?
One year I received a fully stocked wine refrigerator.  That was a pretty cool present!

Snowed in with Santa:
Alana has no choice but to accept the seasonal job as an elf in the local mall, not unless she wants to lose her apartment. She didn't expect the man under the Santa costume, a volunteer named Jared, to be such a hunk, either. But just as the sparks between them fly, Jared tangles with a thief and is escorted out of the mall for violating the manager's 'hands off' policy.

Jared can't believe he was fired from a volunteer job just because he single handedly apprehended a thief in the mall. Worse yet, he won't get to wish Alana a Merry Christmas and ask her out on a date. What he doesn't expect is for her to show up on his doorstep in the middle of a snowstorm . . .
