I met Tori Dean in a roundabout way through friends of friends on Twitter, it has to be almost a year ago now and I've come to know her well. She's one of the most chatty, personable people I've ever met, and when you get to know her you'll see her wicked side surface. And boy what a wicked side it is!
Tori is always the life and soul of a party, but no one is faster to get serious when, and if, the time calls for it. She's always willing to help, and very often is sharing a font of information on anything new she's found out, or on the experiments she sets up to find out the workings of the might Amazon.
I've found myself in many a conversation with Tori, and, all being well, that conversation is laugh after laugh. I adore her fun side, and very often find my stress levels lowering when she get going, she really is one of those bright shining lights.
Tori describes herself as fun, classy, and a heavy on the sexy, writer of steamy stories, and, to be honest, she is so very much more.
Here is what Tori Dean has to say...
Why did you decide you wanted to become a writer?
I was a dreamer growing up and was a hopeless romantic who wanted what every fairytale had..love. I wanted that love. I would write love poems and daydreamed of romance. I loved reading and Danielle Steele was all about romance. It wasn't til about five years ago that I wanted to try writing my stories and dabbled in fanfiction and went from there.
What was the thing that drove you the most to do so?
Stephanie Meyer of the Twilight Series. She had a dream and wrote it. I had a dream and wrote my stories that ended up under a different pen name.
Why did you pick the genre/s that you have?
Because it's all about love..I'm a romantic at heart and everyone deserves it and their fairytale.
What does your family think of your work?
My family does not support my stuff. They are not into reading at all and don't understand it. They think it's porn because I talk about sex. Lol.
How do you deal with writers block?
I put it on back burner and hopefully come back to it later. Sometimes a picture or a song helps bring it back to hot plate.
What would you say is the most difficult part of writing?
Making sure the story flows from beginning to end.
What do you enjoy the most about writing?
I love just getting my stories written down that would make the readers love it.
Where do you find your inspiration?
Mostly songs and then I go with feeling of how it affects me that a story brews. All of my books are music inspired. Then pictures set the scenes.
Are your characters based on anyone you know?
Lol…yes..most of them
What do you do in your spare time to relax?
What do you like to read?
Anything erotic romance fantasy
Who is your favourite author?
