Interview with Author Sherry Hayes
"Please tell us something about you and your book?
I’m thirty-five years old, and live with my husband and three cats in Ohio. My mother fostered my love for books at a young age by reading to me as a child, so I’ve always loved reading. Once I entered my teen years, my reading choices drifted toward romance with the occasional mystery. Although stories have been floating around in my head for as long as I can remember, I never had the desire to write them down growing up. Now, it’s become a creative outlet that allows me to explore a wide range of emotions while having fun taking my characters through all the twists and turns I create.
Need is a continuation of my Finding Anna Series. It picks up right after Slave leaves off, so readers should really read that first in order to understand everything that’s going on in the second book. In Need, Brianna finds herself with a big decision to make. She has to decide if she will stay or leave, and whether or not she wants a relationship with Stephan. It’s another emotional journey for these two.
What are your current literary works?
I currently have four published novels.
My debut novel, Hidden Threat, is a romantic suspense story centered around Matthew Andersen and Cali Stanton. She comes home to run the family business only to find out someone within the company is trying to destroy it and her father. She and Matthew must work together to figure out who the mole is before it’s too late, while trying to fight their growing feelings for each other.
I have another romantic suspense novel that is the first in a series about four brothers. Each brother will have his own book for him and his lady. The first book in that series, Behind Closed Doors, is currently available and tells the story of Chris and Elizabeth. The second book, Red Zone, is due out early next year.
Slave is the first book in my Finding Anna Series. It begins the journey of Stephan and Brianna, a young woman who was an unwilling slave. Although Stephan rescues her from the nightmare she was in, being taken out of a situation doesn’t make it all go away. Brianna has a lot of issues to deal with from her time as a slave, but Stephan is determined to help her. Their story will be told over four books. The second book, Need, was released July 2012.
Which is your favorite book and movie?
My favorite book is Voyager by Diana Gabaldon. Favorite movie is a little harder to pin down. I love romantic movies like The Notebook, but romantic comedies have to be my favorite. I love movies like 27 Dresses and Ten Things I Hate About You.
Why did you decide to write about this type the relationship BDSM?
The level of trust and communication in healthy BDSM relationships fascinated me. I wanted to explore that.
What can readers look forward to next from you?
Red Zone, the second book in my Daniels Brother Series, should be out the first part of next year. The story revolves around Gage Daniels, a professional football player, and an FBI agent. I had a blast writing the story, and I’m looking forward to sharing it with readers the first part of next year.
I’m also currently writing the next installment of my Finding Anna Series. There is still a lot of Stephan and Brianna’s story left to tell.
Please tell us something funny about your books.
This actually has to do with my upcoming story Red Zone. One night as it was nearing time to go to bed, I had this feeling that I needed to find out what happened next. I was reading a book on my Kindle at the time, so I pulled it up and began reading where I’d left off. Unfortunately, the couple in the book wasn’t whose story I wanted to finish reading. It was Gage and Rebecca’s from Red Zone. Only one problem…I hadn’t written it yet.
What is your ideal day as an author?
I try to be at my desk by no later than seven thirty. Check my e-mail and other social networking sites. After that, it depends on what it on tap for the day whether that be writing, editing, answering questions to an interview, or writing a guest blog post. When I’m writing, I tend to try to work in 500 block increments. In between the blocks, I will either take a walk, do some housework, or if I’m feeling lazy that day, go lay on the couch and read for a while.
Anything else you want to share with readers?
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to check out my books. I hope you all enjoy reading the stories that float around in my head.
