A writer’s journey is not complete unless there are folks to witness your process and your progress. Those people are cheerleaders for your success. For me, that person is Eliza David. I can only hope to cheer as loudly for her as she does for me.

Eliza and I met on Twitter. I don't even remember how, but our feeds crossed, and the rest is history. Besides being my #SisterInSmut, she is a resource person. Eliza is the most in touch, finger on the pulse of the writing world, kind of woman. Her new book, The Follow is out, and I invited her here so you could get to know her better and hear about her writing journey.

Introducing the remarkable woman herself, Eliza David.

Welcome, Eliza.

Q: Tell us, who are you?

I’m Eliza David. By day, I’m a clockwatching cubicle dweller. By night, I write the naughty words. When I’m not writing, I’m reading, watching Sex & the City reruns, and/or stirring up trouble on Twitter.

Q: When did you start your romance writing?

I wrote my first novel, The Cougarette (which is PERMAFREE on Kindle US!), during NaNoWriMo in November 2014. In the beginning, I never planned to establish a career as a writer, you know? I just wanted to write the novel to say I wrote it. Almost 3 years and eight novels later…

Q: What are your favorite storylines to write?

I do enjoy an older woman/younger man trope. I also like fandom romance, such as latest novel, The Follow.  I like to write romance with that touch of real-life fantasy: What’s it like to be in your forties and taking a lover almost half your age? What happens when the object of your fandom wants you just as bad as you want them?

Q: What places are you most in touch with your muse?

Most of my motivation to write comes from asking myself questions until I feel a story brewing.  For example, with The Follow, I asked myself: What happens when a celebrity is diagnosed with a sex addiction…right as he’s falling in love? If I can’t answer it, I write it out.

Q: What exciting new thing is happening in your life?

I just released The Follow and I am so happy about it! It combines some of my favorite aspects of life: love, fandom, social media, and – of course – sexy times!  I loved writing the book so much that I had the sequel plotted out before the first book was released!

Q: How would your writing experience today, help a younger you?

I regret the years I didn’t spend writing as a teenager, although I was encouraged by my mother to write back then.  I’m just happy that, as I approach forty, I can crank out these stories and still go for my dreams.  I guess the one thing my writing experience would teach my younger self is to never stop dreaming.

Q: Anything else you want fans to know?

I want my readers to know that they keep me motivated to write the words. I feel blessed every day to have the reader base I have and I will never stop writing. 

Thank you, Eliza, for joining us today. I wish you all the success with The Follow and all of your wonderful writing endeavors!

Favorite tidbit in this: If I can’t answer it, I write it out.
I think that one little line will help so many people. It doesn't have to be fiction, it doesn't have to be published, but writing it all out can help answer so many questions and clear the mind. XoXo
