Greetings from the Windy City! I’m Nichelle Gregory and I’m thrilled to be here!
I’m often asked why I write erotic romance. The answer is multi-faceted. First and foremost, I love books! I’ve always been a voracious reader. I enjoy thrillers, horror and sci-fi but romance has always been my favorite genre!
Lovin’ Leela is your earliest release with Totally Bound, does it have special significance to you?
Yes, it does! Lovin’ Leela was my first story published with Totally Bound! I can remember how nervous I was when I submitted the tale and oh, what a joyous moment it was when I learned it had been accepted!
Hi, I'm Nichelle Gregory and I am Totally Bound's featured author for July!
I was so excited for the opportunity to revamp some of my earlier works! I got a chance to take a nostalgic trip down memory lane as I re-read these tales that truly inspired me to stay the course as a newbie author.
• Chicago. Where else can you experience world-class cuisine, amazing concerts, shows, museums, rockin' night life and shopping? The Windy City has something to offer everyone and it will always be one of my favorite places!
Creating believable, relatable characters is a delightful challenge that I’ve always enjoyed. I think the truly magical part of reading is how we as readers create mental pictures in our mind regarding details of the story given to us by an author. Chances are if you asked two readers of the same book to pick out a real life look –a-like, they would pick two different people. Readers can read the same words but interpretation varies because of our imagination!
This is the third part of the Talk Sexy Serial, so what can you tell us about the other two?
Talk Sexy: Part One starts off with a bang! It introduces the characters and gives readers an uninhibited peek into the world of phone sex and hopefully leaves you wanting more. Part two reveals more about Peyton and Ian's lives as their kinky conversations delve deeper, sparking a mutual need for them both!
I’ve been asked why I write multicultural romance more than once and for a longest time I struggled when giving my answer. I was concerned as a black author, that my interracial stories somehow showed a lack of support of the black family, of the black man. I celebrate and cherish both, but I worried about my books with mixed heroes and heroines being looked upon by members of my own race as ‘sell-out’ stories.
Frustration set Jai on edge. Nothing was making sense and yet somehow he knew he could trust Sabria. She knew things no one could know and there was no discounting the fact she’d told him about her name written in his journal.
Why do you love anything that embraces creativity within us?
Because when we create something we truly offer a glimpse of what passions, interests or curiosities lie within. A shared creative expression is the rawest, most intimate gift you can share with another soul.
