About Layle Black

I've been making up stories and alternate universes since I was kid. I took my queue from fantastic writers who knew exactly how to spark the imagination and send it soaring to unknown lands. I am beyond blessed to be counted among those lovely dream weavers that inspired me. My love of romance spans the majority of my life. From the good old "bodice rippers" to modern vampire fiction. My love of a good titillating story is as broad as it is deep. I can only hope that my offerings to romance fans is a good testimony of the craft I love so much.

Author's Profile

Q: What is writing like for you?

A: I start my day out with a good cup of coffee and mental remix of last night's mental acrobatics. I am a night writer out of habit rather than tendency. I often get sudden sparks of genius in the wee hours. No one said the creative spark was convenient and it certainly isn't punctual. Ideas for stories rattle around in my head until I quite simply can't take anymore. The characters must get down on paper or any other important things in my day will simply not get done. At times I have more creativity than discipline and this shows in the current state of my junky desk. You know the mess I am talking about. Just enough room for your arms in front of the keyboard kind of mess. Writing is definitely a calling for me. I gave up thinking of it in terms of a hobby when I finished my first completed story while a term paper due for a history class sat forlorn and uncompleted.

Q: Why Erotica?

A: Why not erotica? I think the complexity of relationships is always fodder for a great story. Add some sexual tension and you have an ideal setting.

Q: If you weren't writing, what would you be doing?

A: Wishing I was writing.

Q: What types of stories do you write?

A: I write all kinds! My current story is a contemporary piece but I also enjoy historical and science fiction.

Q: What is your ideal hero like?

A: I have always had a little crush on the “bad guy”. I love the dark and menacing type who needs the love a good woman. These guys are the most fun to write by far for me. I am a firm believer there is no such thing as perfect but just works in progress.


An Interview with Layle Black
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio

HH: Layle, thank you for talking with us at TRS BLUE! Your featured book is Faire Dreamer. Where did you get the idea for this steamy tale of three?

LB: Thank you very much for having me. Faire Dreamer came from my years of experience with the renaissance faire. I loved my time with the faires so much that I was inspired to write a story. Handsome knights and damsels in distress are fairly common in that fantasy world, so I had plenty there to inspire me.

HH: What do you like best about Lindsey and why will readers relate to her?

LB: I wrote Lindsey as a contemporary and independent woman. She owns her own business and is the "stable" one in her family. I wanted her to be believable and able to resonate with any who read her story. She may be considered average but her story is certainly not. I think readers embraced the possibilities of the out of the ordinary happening to such an ordinary woman.

HH: What do you like best about Ethan and Christian and why will readers love them?

LB: What is there not to like about Ethan and Christian? I wanted them hard to resist and men that any woman could love. They are strong, sexy, sensitive and knights in shining “hotness”. What more can you ask for.

HH: What do you think readers are looking for today in ménage stories and how did you pull it off? <g>

LB: I can't speak for all readers of manage romances but as a reader of the genre, I always looked for relationships that showed depth and meaning. A good manage story is not just about the steaming hot sex (a plus) but the emotional communion as well.

HH: What else do you have in the works?

LB: I am currently working on two stories. One is a regency historical piece and the second is a science fiction story.

HH: How do you view the future of ebooks?

LB: I think ebooks are absolutely the wave of the future; however I still enjoy curling up with a good paperback.

HH: How much of your day is devoted to your writing career?

LB: My entire day is taken up with writing in one form or another it seems. If I am not working at my computer, I am certainly thinking about it.

HH: What's your favorite way to interact with readers?

LB: My readers have been very supportive of my writing and email me often. I enjoy getting their feedback that way.

HH: What is your favorite Halloween type/themed story? Why?

LB: I always enjoy a good supernatural story. Vampires, werewolves and ghosts...Oh MY! The more, the better. I think the world of the super natural is limitless with storytelling possibilities. I must admit that vampires are particularly fascinating to read about. They are just so seductive and sexy to read about. I can almost never resist them.

HH: What do you most enjoy about Autumn?

LB: I think Autumn is all about the senses. The changing colors of the leaves on the trees, the taste of hot apple cider and that little chilly nip in the air. It's all about cuddling and settling in for the winter.

HH: Thank you!
