And now, to kick off our contest with a bang, Indigo Skye: Ink and Art is proud to present a special interview with Lucy Felthouse, the first in a series of exclusive dish sessions with the Uniform Behaviour crew!

Q: Welcome to Indigo Skye: Ink and Art, Ms. Felthouse. Readers would love to know more about your work. What was the inspiration behind the story you penned for Uniform Behaviour?

A: My inspiration for "Just Couldn't Wait" actually speaks volumes about me. I was watching one of my favourite TV shows, Supernatural and there's an episode where my favourite Winchester, Sam, is working in a bar. He's wearing a white t-shirt and looks... well... *fans self*. For some reason this made my insane imagination think about him in a waiter's uniform, and the rest is history.

Q: Any steamy new projects in the works? We'd love to dish about your latest release and any works in progress you'd like to discuss.

A: My latest release, Bite With Height, is another story which has an interesting tale of inspiration behind it. It's based in Paris and is heavily influenced by the Sacre-Coeur and the surrounding area. It's a paranormal tale of lesbian romance – and that's all I'm saying. I don't want to give anything away. It's available from Noble Romance here: https://nobleromance.com/Books/298
Projects in progress are many! But one I'm most excited about is the novel I'm finally starting to plan and work on. It's been a long time coming!

Q: Favorite way to unwind on a long holiday weekend?

A: I love spending time outdoors. I like camping, walking, exploring the countryside and visiting historical houses and properties.

Q: When you're not hard at work creating steamy erotica, how do you like to spend your time?

A: If I can't get out and about, I'm generally reading, surfing the web or watching one of my favourite TV shows, or a film.

Q: Tell us about your day as a writer- do you stick to a set schedule, or just write when inspiration strikes?

A: It depends on what I'm doing in the day job. I work for myself, doing web design, PR & Marketing for writers. So it all depends on what I'm currently working on client-wise. I just make sure I organise my time well and it means I can make sure I'm doing my very best for all my clients and still find time to write.

Q: What inspires you, makes you itch to write?

A: All kinds of things. But mainly it's an idea. If I'm suddenly struck by inspiration, or a really good story idea, I often want to get writing straight away. Unfortunately, deadlines get in the way of that sometimes and the ideas have to be shelved for a while, but I make sure I write them all down so I can come back to them at a later date.

Q: Do you do any research as part of the writing process? What does that entail?

A: It depends what I'm writing about. Most of my work is contemporary and therefore doesn't need any research. However, I recently wrote a piece based on a true legend from the Peak District and I did research into that, including visiting the place it's based. As someone passionate about the Peak District and its history, that was great fun.

Q: Any final words of inspiration for emerging authors?

A: Just go for it. In the first instance, get words down on the page. You might discover they're rubbish to begin with, but the more you write, the better you get, so keep at it!

Thanks for joining us today, Lucy! Best of luck with your new novel- can't wait to read it! Readers, you won't want to miss this one! Stay tuned to Indigo Skye: Ink and Art for more intimate, revealing interviews with Uniform Behaviour authors.
