A Moment with Cassandra Carr

1-Tell the readers a little about yourself.
My name is Cassandra Carr, and I’m a multi-published writer of erotic romance. My debut novel, Talk to Me, released in March 2011, and then Head Games, book 1 of the Buffalo Intimidators series, came out in November 2011. Additionally, Caught was released in mid-December 2011. It was a busy year for me!
I live in the Western New York area with my husband and young daughter and I’m bit of a hockey freak. Go Sabres!
2-As an author, do you take time to read? If so, what do you like to read and who is/are your favorite author/s?
I think it’s hugely important that authors continue to read! I do take time to read almost every day. I read a lot in my genre, and I really like Cherise Sinclair, Maya Banks, Scarlett Parrish, Cat Grant, Viki Lyn – oh geez, the list goes on and on.
In non-erotic romance I love Lisa Kleypas and Jennifer Crusie.
3-How do you stay motivated when the Muse is uncooperative?
Sometimes I don’t. If it’s really bad I’ll give myself a break of a few days, but I always go back to it. Other times I just kind of sit down and plow through. Usually once I start writing the words come.
4-If you could go anywhere in the world on a romantic getaway, what would you do and where would you go?
If I could go to Europe for a month with my hubby I could die happy. I’ve been to Italy (without him) and he’s been to France (without me), but being able to take a nice, big block of time and just wander all over Europe would be divine!
5-What is the hardest thing for you to write?
Endings! Readers will probably crack up when they hear this, but since I’m a pantser, I oftentimes am writing along and kind of say, “This looks like a good place for The End.” Seriously.

6-If you could live the life of one of your characters who would you be?
Oh man. I love my heroes, so I’d probably want to be one of them. I’m going to go with Drew Milan, my hero from Talk to Me. He’s a filthy stinking rich retired hockey player who has a talk show on sports radio for four hours on weekdays. He has a big apartment overlooking Manhattan, uses a car service to get to and from work. That doesn’t sound like a bad life…
7-The tag line on my blog is ‘Indulge Your Inner Romantic.’ What do you do to indulge?
I indulge my addiction to Pepsi, lol. But on the romantic side? Wow, I’m not sure. I think I would have to say I indulge my love for books.

Leo Laporte and Scott Schaeffer are teammates on the ice and roommates off it who also share women. They’ve been coming into Kelly Chase’s bistro after games for months, and they know they want her. As the attraction grows, the men realize they want more than a one-night stand - they want forever.
Kelly’s not so sure. Yes, she wants both men. But a permanent ménage relationship? That’s taking giving her heart away to a whole new level, and a chance she’s hesitant to take. Then Leo is injured and Scott’s on the trading block, and she realizes this may be her only shot at true, everlasting love.
There are so many questions swirling around inside Kelly’s head. Can she believe in Leo and Scott’s love? And will her business and her reputation survive once people find out she’s with two men?

Hello Cassandra. Welcome to Decadent Decisions. Tyrell, the bartender has plenty of Pepsi on hand, even though I prefer Coke. :-) He always can getcha anything else Chef Aanan has prepared a fabulous buffet today. And if you don't see it Chef can prepare it.

I'm really excited to have you here, a couple of your titles are in my TBR pile just waiting for me to read. Thanks for being here today!

Cassandra Carr said...

YUM! I haven't eaten yet today, so I'll have to think about what sounds good...

Thanks for having me here. Can I touch the staff? Or the staffs of the staff? *grin*

W. Lynn Chantale said...

*g* Oh the staff are at your disposal. Touch, taste, ogle at your leisure. Geez! At least wait until I leave...oh never mind. I'll pour my own drink.
