Author Interview with Anya Summers

HisDrivenDomme_small copyWhat inspired your latest book? 

Actually, it might surprise you. I always had a bit of a crush on Paul Walker. I will never forget the first time I saw him step onto the big screen in Varsity Blues and thought there is a god and it is he. His untimely and tragic death a few years ago hit me hard. I’m not sure if it’s because we are contemporaries in age or what not, but his passing is one of the few celebrity deaths that really hit home for me. When I was developing this series, and this current release, His Driven Domme, I made it my ode to Paul Walker.

What is your next project and when will it be released?

My next release in the Dungeon Fantasy Club Series is Her Country Master, which is slated for an August 17th, 2016 release date.

How likely are people you meet to end up in your next book?

Usually they don’t, it’s more that there might be a certain personality trait or quirk that an individual possesses which could be added to a character to give them depth.

 Do you prefer to read in the same genres you write in or do you avoid reading that genre? Why? 

I read everything. I don’t necessarily avoid reading the genre I’m currently writing in. I prefer to go with what I’m in the mood for. Here lately, I’ve been reading Ruby Dixon’s Ice Planet Barbarian series and am really enjoying it.

What did you want to be when you were a child?  

When I was in grade school, I wanted to be an astronaut. I wanted like crazy to have the chance to go to the moon or on a mission to Mars. That little dream bubble burst by the time I hit middle school and discovered how much math was involved.

Did you always know you wanted to be a writer? 

No, I didn’t. Growing up, I followed another one of my passions, music, and went to college on a music scholarship. I wanted to be or thought I wanted to be a business manager for a band. I had always written though, starting in junior high and high school. Getting my start by writing really horrible, soul-sucking, poetry. It wasn’t until the year after I graduated from college that I tried my hand at writing a novel. And from there I was hooked.

When did you start writing toward publication? 

I wrote my first book with an eye toward publication in 2001. I indie published in 2014 and then received my first book contract in 2016. There is no such thing in this business as overnight success.

Describe the genre of this particular title, and is the only genre you write in?  

His Driven Domme is the fourth book in my erotic romance Dungeon Fantasy Club Series. It is a stand-alone title and does not need to be read in order. I also write Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, and Contemporary under the name Maggie Mae Gallagher.

Jesse Noble loves fast cars and even faster women. A professional race car driver, he’s used to being in the driver’s seat, until a devastating loss on the track forces him to walk away from the only life he’s ever known. After months of rehab and soul-sucking depression, Jesse heads to his friend’s place in Scotland, thinking a month or two of indulging in the fleshy delights of the Dungeon Fantasy Club will help him maneuver the road to recovery more than any painkillers.

Lucy Martin is the mistress and commander of her world. Labeled an ‘Ice Queen’ by her co-workers, she hides her tender and passionate heart from the world, even as she hopes to one day find a man who will help soothe her shattered heart. Now her best friend Zoey, the only person on the planet Lucy can confide in, has gone AWOL and left the country for some Scottish laird. On a mission to rescue her BFF, Lucy travels to Mulladoch Manor and has her world turned on its axis; finding herself in an exclusive BDSM club where she feels right at home.

When the dominant Jesse spies the luscious Lucy sporting four-inch stilettos and leather in the Dungeon Fantasy Club, he surrenders to a night of mind-blowing ecstasy, her caresses somehow driving away every one of his inner demons with supreme skill. In the race of his life, Jesse moves out of the driver’s seat and willingly becomes her passenger – if only she’ll continue tying him up and paddling his bare ass into the most erotically charged, world altering orgasms he’s ever experienced.

When their past secrets are revealed, Jesse will have to convince Lucy to enter the fast lane with him – and prove that he’s willing to submit to all of his Domme’s utmost desires. Can he make the ultimate sacrifice and give up control – for love?

Publisher’s Note: While this is the fourth installment of Anya Summer’s Dungeon Fantasy Club series, like all the books in the series, it can be read as a standalone. It contains explicit sexual themes including anal play and BDSM elements, as well as femdom scenes. If such material offends you, please do not purchase.
