Hello!! Today we have the lovely Danielle Jamie Author of Irresistible Desire with her very first interview. So pull up a seat and enjoy.

Hello Danielle! Thanks so much for coming to Alpha's, Authors and Books Oh My to answer our questions. You are a new author with your very first book published titled Irresistible Desire. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am 28, and a mother of three. I have two girls Madison 9, Bailey 5 and my lil man Finn who is 1 ½. I have been married to my husband Will for almost 10 yrs and together almost 13! I run a boutique online, Bailey Booper’s Boutique. I have always written as a hobby and always said my goal since high school was to have a book published before I was 30. I turned 28 in February and a week before my birthday I said Screw It I am going to go for it and write a book! With all the options out there for new authors there was no reason for me to put it off any longer
Describe Irresistible Desire in 30 Words or less.
A Steamy, Hot, Emotional Roller coaster Ride. It will make you laugh, cry, scream, and swoon all with in a few hours of reading it! It will leave you wanting more. Kayden Knox will have your panties melting off!
How did you come up with the title?
One of my favorite quotes is Robert Frosts, “Love is an Irresistible Desire to be Irresistibly Desired.” I new after coming up with my story line and ideas for this book that it fit perfectly. I loved how no one had used it yet! I was able to find a clever way to incorporate the books name into the story, so it was Perfect.
Do you have a favorite chapter, scene or part that you wrote and if so why?
My favorite scene is the hot fudge scene in Kayden’s penthouse suite. It is the first time Kayden & Savannah were together intimately in a more intimate way. The other two times before that were “Quickie’s” This scene they really took the time to connect with each other on a deeper sexual level. I also love how playful it was
When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer and what inspired your first book?
I have wanted to be a writer ever since Elementary School! I have been writing poetry and short stories my entire life. Every time I read a book I said I really need to be doing this! I am a huge soap opera fan and romantic novel fan and was inspired by the years of watching soaps & reading novels. Tied that in with things I love myself and with that came Savannah’s story!
Do you have any writing rituals or a process you follow?
Not really. I kind of just makes notes whenever an idea pops into my head and sometimes I will have one idea in mind when I am writing and than be inspired by something I saw or read that day and totally change the entire idea to something completely different. My story pretty much comes to me while I am writing it, lol I guess you can say.
Where and when do you prefer to do your writing?
My favorite time to write is at nighttime once all the kids are in bed and I can truly relax and focus. I try to write during the day, but with my Boutique I am always so busy I just cannot seem to focus.
Is there any particular author or book that influenced you?
My main influences are V.C. Andrews, Sylvia Day, and Olivia Cunning.
What do you like to do when you're not writing?
I love walking with my kids, when its nice outside we go for a 2 mile walk together pretty much everyday! Another favorite pass time is going out to eat with my kids and Husband, it can be anywhere from Mcdonalds to The Texas Roadhouse, just getting out of the house and spending time together. My favorite thing at night if I am not writing, is I love laying on the couch and watching shows on my DVR. In peace & quiet!
Do you have any favorite authors or favorite books?
My favorite Author growing up was V.C. Andrews, and now I Love Sylvia Day, J.A. Redmerski, S.C. Stephens, Olivia Cunning, Jamie McGuire..ect there are SO MANY Amazing Authors out there right now I could go on ALL DAY!
What can we expect from Danielle Jamie next?
Right now I have been brain storming for Book 2 for my Savannah Trilogy! It is going to be full of hot steamy sex and crazy ass drama!
What 3 words describe the author you want to be?
That’s hard to answer? LOL, I guess Inspiring, Admirable, Fun!
Ok now that all the hard stuff is out of the way it's time for a little fun. Boxers, Briefs or Commando?
Well I love to look at a man in a nice fitted pair of briefs, but commando is nice too ;)
Bed, floor or up against the wall?
Bed or Wall, definitely NO FLOOR…rug burn is a bitch ;)
Bad boy or boy next door?
Of Course Bad Boy!
Tattoos & piercing or smooth & unmarked?
Well my husband is smooth & unmarked but I love a man with tattoos.. Just a few not completely covered!
Butt, eyes or chest?
I love a man with gorgeous eyes and a nice butt, a chiseled chest would be nice but not a must, also I have a huge pet peeve about teeth! They have to have an amazing smile!
Thank you so much for stopping by to talk with us. Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?
I would love to give a quick thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of me. I am a new author and people had no idea if my story would be intriguing or a snooze fest, lol…so I am just grateful to everyone who took a chance on me and purchased my book. All the amazing feedback I have received is just the cherry on top! I hope they love Inescapable Desire & Infinite Desire just as much as they have Irresistible Desire!
