I write erotic romance. It’s interesting for me to say that, especially when asked face to face, and not over the internet. I’m confident you can just imagine what people’s reactions are, or more specifically what men versus women’s reactions are….but that’s not what has got my feminine wheels turning.
Hi, I’m Billi Jean. I’d like to first thank you for having me on Cara Sutra. This site is amazing. And, you know, this is exactly why I write erotic romance. I write erotic love stories because I like to give people who want a love story with more heat – a read that they can enjoy for both the sexual bits and the love story bits.
I have to say, writing an interracial couple, for me, was something that happened by chance, not design. I didn’t say to myself, ‘Hey, how about a hot tall, dark and handsome black American man and a half Korean, half Jamaican woman for a romance?’ I don’t write that way. Actually, I don’t even think that way.
You know, I think sometimes writers just see people differently. For example, I live in China right now. A lot of people look alike, right? Wrong! I was sitting with my friends on a Sunday at a local pub talking about life and what’s been going on. I remembered suddenly about this odd encounter I had getting street food. I was out after tutoring (My day job…) and hungry. My daughter and I stopped by for our favorite street food from sellers we always go to.
Can we assume that this new addition to the Sisterhood of Jade series includes a demon love story?
Yes, absolutely. Agni, a Fire Demon, and a guy that’s shown up in almost all the stories so far, is finally getting his story. He and Bethany are the couple in this book and their love story is full of missed chances and mistakes, but in the end I think they kick some butt. Not each others, by the way!
• I love to travel. One of my all-time favorite destinations is the Philippines. The islands there are amazing. White beaches, clear water, friendly people, and fun activities. What more could you want? I was lucky enough to spend two weeks there this summer, and all I can say is after two days of beautiful sunshine, and amazing sunrises, and sunsets, I was as relaxed as possible. Stress just melts away.
