Hello and welcome to my blog, Author Interviews. My name is Fiona Mcvie.
Let’s get you introduced to everyone, shall we? Tell us your name. What is your age?
Hey everyone. I’m James Crow and I’m old enough to know better.
Fiona: Where are you from?
I’m from a tiny island that is nowhere near enough to the equator. It’s known as the United Kingdom, which sounds rather mystical to me, but it’s far from mystical.
Fiona: A little about your self (ie, your education, family life, etc.).
No comment – I keep my wife, my mistress, my six kids, and my membership at the Blue Oyster club – private.
Fiona: Tell us your latest news.
My latest release “One Filthy Man” brought something unexpected – messages from women who thanked me for the topics covered. Uplifting messages. To know that my words helped in some way matters more than anything else.
Fiona: When and why did you begin writing?
I think I was about six. The woman in the candy shop had massive tits. I’d go home and draw her, then write silly tales. Maybe she would be telling me off, make me stand in the corner. And it all went downhill from there.
Fiona: When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Hmm, had to think about this. I was a writer at six when I wrote about candy shop woman’s boobs. But I guess you mean a writer of books. Then I guess it would be after the release of my first book SIX – readers asked for more, so I wrote more.
Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book?
My pal Jade West. She told me I was dirty fucker, that I should get the words down. So I did.
Fiona: How did you come up with the title?
Not me. My muse threw it up in brilliant red neon above an image of Jonathon Gold getting fucked by his girl with a strap-on. And there was the book in an instant.
Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style? Is there anything about your style or genre that you find particularly challenging?
I try to engage a different style in each new book. Doing so, and finding the best voice, is challenging.
Fiona: How much of the book is realistic and are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
I think, if you’re going to write about kinky sex and BDSM, then it pays to be a kinky fucker yourself.
Fiona: To craft your works, do you have to travel? Before or during the process?
Oh yes. First, I travel to the pub for a good session. Then I travel to my study and say hello to the green fairy. The green fairy will invariably then take charge of travels for a while.
Fiona: Who designed the covers?
The brilliant Letitia Hasser of RBA Designs created the covers for SIX and its sequel SIX TOY.
Fiona: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
Yes there is – you’ll have to read it to find out.
Fiona: Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest? Who is your favorite writer, and what is it about their work that really strikes you?
I read so many authors and genres, so hard to have a favourite.
Fiona: Outside of family members, name one entity that supported your commitment to become a published author.
That would be Drew – my dealer. The more I write the more drugs I take. Yeah, Drew wanted me to make it big.
Fiona: Do you see writing as a career?
It’s all in the maths. Last week I made enough in royalties for a bowl of rice and a latte. I suppose I could train my body to live on that. So yeah, it’s a career.
Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
My latest book ONE FILTHY MAN is being hailed as my best book yet by many readers, and I really do like the story. Nope, I wouldn’t change a thing.
Fiona: Did you learn anything during the writing of your recent book?
Yeah you always do from the research. But in the case of ONE FILTHY MAN the depths my research took me regarding the ills we do to our own was really quite soul-destroying. Man can be such an ass.
Fiona: If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?
The gorgeous redhead Christina Hendricks would play the part of Rhiannon so well!
As for the scruff that is Sebastian I’m really not sure. Maybe that Poldark bloke?
Fiona: Any advice for other writers?
Do it your way!
Fiona: Anything specific you want to tell your readers?
Just thanks, for reading.
Fiona: What book are you reading now?
None, because I’m deep into writing my next book, and reading a different style throws my writing.
Fiona: Do you remember the first book you read?
Yeah, again I was around six – found a pile of Playboy magazines in the bottom of my father’s wardrobe.
Fiona: What makes you laugh/cry?
I cry when I see people do well, especially kids. As for laughing, the weed makes me laugh 😊
Fiona: Is there one person, past or present, you would love to meet? Why?
Donald Trump. It’s rare to find a human who wears his ego so totally around him. I’d like to poke him a bit.
Fiona: Do you have any hobbies?
I collect stamps – the tramp kind.
Fiona: What TV shows/films do you enjoy watching?
The Walking Dead. League of Gentlemen. Twin Peaks. Weird shit like that.
Fiona: Favorite foods, colors, music?
Blue Smarties are my favorite, and turquoise for the color, and Louis Armstrong. So I guess my answer is all the blues.
Fiona: Imagine a future where you no longer write. What would you do?
Fuck. A lot.
Fiona: You only have 24 hours to live how would you spend that time?
Fuck. A lot.
Fiona: What do you want written on your head stone?
Fiona: Do you have a blog or website readers can visit for updates, events and special offers?
