Interview by: Michelle Tan
Operation One Night Stand and Operation Foreplay were my first steps into romance but, of course, I can’t be serious about peens and vaginas so I had to make it fun, light, and funny. Think Amy Schumer. Tina Fey. Amy Poehler. Maybe Samantha Bee. I figure if you can’t laugh about se then you aren’t doing it right. In both books, I mention the uncomfortable (Ice pack on vaginas? Farting during sex? Micro penis), the funny (Spin class after a particularly rough night? Cock sucking cowboy? Stinky pussy?), and the sweet. Yes I threw in some “awww” moments in the books juts because, yeah yeah – it’s not all goofy and silly.
What are Christine's ritual on OPERATION GETTING READY FOR DATE NIGHT? Thankfully I don’t require much maintenance. My hair is poker straight unless I sleep with a wet ponytail so I pretty much blow dry with a brush and go. Now that I’m getting older, I do find my fingers in more jars of wrinkle cream than I care to admit. I’m a definite mascara and lipstick gal. I’d also rather head out in jeans, a sexy tee, and heels. Grab a clutch with a pop of color and I’m all set.
Well… is it awful that some are mine? Brian from OONS, Jared from Operation Foreplay, Jake from Three Days of Rain…Then I love Roarke from JD Robb’s In Death series. That’s all I can think of for now. Until I started writing it, I never read romance with the boyfriends. Needless to say, I’ve been trying to devour as many as I can now.
Are there any future release that your readers need to keep an eye out for? **Ahem for me to stalk so I can add to my TBR list.** ☺ Okay – I am working on THREE wips right now – 1. An untitled thriller – only because I’ve always wanted to try writing one. 2. An untitled ugly cry that I call Sam and Maggie – only because I have no title. 3. Operation Cohabitate – Sarah and Drew move in!!! The stories of Melody and Caroline continue but they’re in the background. It’s Sarah’s turn to shine.
Why should readers be one-clicking these two books? Well if you asked me, I would tell your readers.
1. HOT BANGING SEX – Um – yes. All the banging sex.
2. HOT BARTENDERS and of course SCREAMING ORGASMS – I agree with this. Add in two super horny characters suffering from sexual frustration due to a mutual agreement to take sex off the table. – Yeah. Hilarity ensues.
3. And of course, every reader needs to meet Melody and what I like to call her greedy vagina. Melody is an almost thirty year-old single woman living in the city, who is sassy, feisty, unfiltered and has a voracious appetite for S-E-X. Yes, that's right Melody Ashford has a greedy vagina!!! - So greedy. I mean, I am all for female empowerment – Own your sexuality. Horny? Have sex. Don’t’ make excuses, no apologies. Just get it, girl.
4. And I certainty can't forget Melody's one night stand with Vienna Sausage Micropeen - With his lion yell and fart machine? It. Was. Awful.
6. Um…Operation One Night Stand has been included in the Color Me Kinky coloring book put out by HJ Bellus and 40 amazing authors. PLUS the book was designed by the awesome Jessica Hildreth.
