AuThursday – Patti Fisher

I’m happy to share with you an interview I did with Patti Fisher, my CP and fellow member of RWAOL!

Patti – Thanks for joining me today.  Lets jump right into shall we.

Q:  Would you tell us a little about your new book, A Purrfect Love?

How about if I give you the blurb for the story? It tells it all:


Molly, a black Persian cat, has a few tricks in mind
when she goes on a mission to bring together a
couple who are just purr-fect for each other.


Last thing Marisa Hamilton needs is her cat, Molly,
going out onto the window ledge. Dressed in a
skimpy outfit for a Halloween party, Marisa chases
after her cat, only to lose her footing.  


New next door neighbor, Ben Singer, comes to
Marisa’s rescue and offers her coffee and a
chance to recover from her ordeal. More than just
coffee sizzles between them. Will their chance
encounter result in A Purrfect Love?


Q:  Why did you decide to write erotic romance?

It’s not in  A Purrfect Love! Most of those who know me shake their head when I tell them there is not any sex in it. LOL. I’ve always loved sensual romance and continue to write it and the only reason I wrote A Purrfect Love was to work myself through writer’s block on a story I’m targeting to Brava. (It worked!) I decided to polish up A Purrfect Love and in June, I submitted it to The Wild Rose Press and got accepted in August. It’s been a whirlwind ever since. 🙂


Q:  Which Hero is your favorite to date and why?

You know what? My favorite hero that I’ve ever written is one that is not published. Brady. Sigh. he’s a good guy with a heart, with a hint of badness.

 Q:  How many WIP’s ( Works In Progress) have you got going?

I’ve completed several…right now I just finished a erotic romantic comedy that takes place in (of all places!) eastern Oregon. Hero is a building contractor who takes on the task of remodeling the kitchen of the widow of his late best friend. He’s always had a thing for her but felt she was offlimits. I had fun writing it.

Right now I’m working on a contemporary paranormal that so far has a gothic feel to it..

Q:  On Average, how long does it take you to write a book?

Depends. I have a day job and other things going on. This last one took me two months to write and is just under 40k words.

 Q:  Does a Hero always have to be Good Looking?

I wouldn’t want an ugly hero! However, I like the rugged all male types. The bad boys. The ones so sinfully sexy a woman would melt in his arms. Sometimes it’s not  how they look, but how they ooze the sexual appeal, whether with their voice or their actions.

Q:  How about the Heroine?

Oh, no. I prefer my femaile heroines normal, every day people.

Q:  Where do feel most at home?

I spend most of my time in my family room. My computer is there, my tv and my cats. <g>


Q: Where can readers find you on the World Wide Web? 

Q: Do you have a quote you’d like to share with us?

Sometimes love will find you when you least expect it
