ff

We’ve got the lovely Indigo Skye with us today answering my Blissemas questions for your pleasure! Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the contest to win a kindle! Now, I’ll hand you over to Indigo!

Do you enjoy the winter?

I love it. Winter in the Rockies is a beautiful and inspiring time of year. After a snowstorm, the mountains look just like a picture postcard. I enjoy snowshoeing in the forest, and taking winter camping trips to the desert with friends, exploring the ruins at Chaco Canyon, Comb Ridge, and Mesa Verde. It’s wonderful to visit in the winter-time- there aren’t as many tourists, so we’ve got the place to ourselves. Sometimes this leads to naughty adventures in the great outdoors. Nothing better than cuddling up with a good book- or a good man- on a cold and blustery winter day.

Do you write about the winter holidays (Christmas etc) often?

I’m a witch, so I celebrate the Winter Solstice with friends each December. I’ve written several poems and short stories about different aspects of winter holidays and the seasons. The beauty of the snow-capped peaks is an endless inspiration, this time of year!

What’s your favourite festive tale?

The holidays can be a stressful time. I love to soak away my cares in a bubble-bath, with a glass of red wine and a good book. Right now I’m re-reading Helen Fielding’s novel, Bridget Jones’ Diary. Her hilarious antics are always good for a laugh!

Is winter sexy?

Winter is a very sexy time of year. I feel most alive in the winter-time, and spend lots of time reading- and writing- steamy, seductive stories to keep me warm! When I’m stressed from too much holiday shopping, I like to treat myself to a pedicure and a massage- a little pampering keeps me feeling sexy and energized throughout the holiday season. My favorite holiday tradition is kissing beneath the mistletoe- if it were up to me, we’d do that year-round, not just at Christmas-time.

What’s your latest release tell us all about it!

I recently had two short stories published in the erotica anthology, Seducing the Myth, edited by Lucy Felthouse. What an amazing project. I’m honored to have been chosen. The stories I submitted are very different. “Saving Orpheus” is an erotic re-imagining of the tale of Orpheus. It begins when Orpheus is cast out of Hades, suicidal with grief. As the tale unfolds, we meet a bold naiad who saves his life and gives him a second chance at love. “The Weary Traveller” tells the tale of a bard who wanders into Faerie for a surprising, lusty encounter with the Fey Queen and her faerie maidens. The fabulous Ms. Felthouse collected sexy renditions of myths and legends throughout the world, compiling them into one steamy volume. Need a hot, sexy read to keep you up all night? Look no further!


Do you believe in Father Christmas?

I’m a big believer in the Christmas spirit, whether or not I celebrate the holiday itself. I live in a small community that does a lot to help the needy, especially around the holidays. Lots of folks are supporting diaper drives and food drives, silent auctions, The Giving Tree, and other events. Larger organizations like Project Merry Christmas and the Salvation Army, and other programs provide local families with emergency funds for bills, gas cards, warm winter coats, and hot meals, along with the little extras to help their kids have a happy holiday. I don’t know about Father Christmas and his army of toy-making elves, but I believe in that. I love the spirit of giving and generosity so evident in our community.

What’s your Favourite festive food?

You can get the most gorgeous oranges at Christmas time. I love eating them in bed with a lover, then licking each other clean…

Which film do you watch over again at Christmas time?

I love ‘A Christmas Story’ and National Lampoon’s ‘Christmas Vacation’. I also love the old classic Claymation version of ‘Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer.’ For more adult fare, the film ‘Bridget Jones’ Diary’ is always a favorite.


Do you get much writing done between the festivities?

I’m a dedicated writer. Rare is the day when I don’t put pen to page and compose something new. Holidays can be a distraction- or an inspiration! I’m in a very creative period right now, with tons of ideas flowing.

I have a special holiday gift for your readers, Victoria. I’m happy to announce I’ll be giving away three copies of my e-book, Her Captive Muse, to three commenters on this site.

When Brendan Delaney answered an ad for an artist’s model, he was looking for an easy way to earn some extra cash. But Morgan Roan wanted more than just a model. Soon, Brendan finds himself caught in a web of deception and desire, lust and betrayal—her captive muse. What price pleasure?
