Interview questions for Sarah O'Rourke!

Tell us a little about yourself. 
Sarah O’Rourke is actually a pair of authors, and we refer to ourselves as Crazy 1 and Crazy 2.  Best friends who have been writing together for almost 5 years, we are both Southern born and bred and have a tendency to drawl our words to the point where our northern-born husbands ask for translators.  We are both mommies, and we both regularly have our prescriptions of Xanax refilled in order to continue being mommies.  There is no shame in our game!

Quick round:
Coffee, tea or…what’s your vice?  
Crazy 1:  Cappuccino Blasts from Baskin Robbins….I gotta have one a day!  
Crazy 2:  Sweet’s not possible to make it through the day without a cup of sugar with my tea, you know!

Favorite Movie:  
Both of us love Steel the point where we can quote it and annoy the hell out of our husbands.

Favorite Color:  
Crazy 1 says Green...
Crazy 2 says magenta...we make a lovely color wheel!

Favorite book/author: 
All time Fave:  Crazy 1:  Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell    
Crazy 2:  To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Fave erotica: The Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day....waiting NOT SO PATIENTLY for the next book!!

How do you feel about bacon?  
I feel bad for the pig…just not enough to boycott the tasty treat.

Now for the serious questions... 

What’s under your bed? 
Dust bunnies.  I really need to do something about that.  They’re growing their own little farm in there and about to unionize....

What comes first, plot or characters? 
For me, characters…or rather, the kind of character I want to write.  The plot usually forms around them.  

Pantser, plotter, or hybrid? Tell us about your writing process.
 I’m more a hybrid.  I do plot, but usually not until I’m 20,000 words into the story.  Until then, it’s all about stream of consciousness writing for me.   We also have a strange partnership in writing – we often talk about the story over and over again, and then Crazy 1 will write it while Crazy 2 will edit and re-write, then send it back to Crazy 1 for review.  We know we’re strange...and we’re okay with that!

Oddest thing on your desk?
At the moment?  My son’s house shoe, which is a dinosaur clodhopper complete with claws.  He will reclaim it soon and will stomp around the house doing his best impression of a T-Rex. 

What’s your most interesting writing quirk?
I do my best writing when the house is so clean that I smell bleach. This might be an addiction, but I am not so worried that I’m looking for a 12-step program. 

What’s your favorite thing about the genre you write in?
It’s a very freeing experience to produce erotica.  I can write about things I’d never ACTUALLY do inside my own marriage bed. 

What is the hardest thing about being an author?
Honestly?  I’d say it’s wondering if the story you’re trying to convey to the readers is actually coming across the page/screen to them.   It’s very hard to not get immediate feedback and spend time worrying that what was in my mind wasn’t conveyed well.

What’s the easiest thing about being an author?
The hours.  I write when the mood strikes...this may be from midnight to 4 AM or from noonish onward!

Tell us about your latest release!
Slave to Passion is the second book in The Estate series, but each book is a stand alone and does not have to be read as part of the series. We were very excited to publish this newest release because both of us truly enjoyed writing about the wonders of The Estate, which is a secretive, members-only club where decadence meets delicious depravity!

In Slave to Passion, Madison Laurant is successful in life...but
repressed in the bedroom. Her desires are barely contained under the surface, just waiting to be stoked and fanned into a raging inferno by the one man brave enough to conquer her defenses...her law partner, Hunter DeLuca.

Hunter knows exactly what Madison needs, even if she isn't yet aware of it herself. And when she finds herself enjoying the delicious depravity that The Estate offers, she realizes how much she has missed in her life!

Slave to Passion is graphic erotica mixed with a steamy, romantic plot that will keep you begging for more.

You can purchase Slave to Passion for only $2.99 at Amazon
