Nine for the week welcomes LORRAINE NELSON

So today, we welcome Lorraine Nelson   to Nine for the Week.
Welcome to Raven's Nine for the Weekend. Glad you could drop by.

Q        We'll get this one over first, tell us a little bit about yourself.
A         I’m a Cancer, so the home and hearth scenario fits me well; a homebody, a bit of a loner. I love reading, writing and spending time with my family, especially my grandkids.

Q        Thanks, now we can probe a bit more. What are you writing at the moment? Going to share any of it with us? (I know that’s really two questions, but hey we will call it a and b)
A         I’m currently finishing up the sequel to Zakia and the Cowboy. It’s entitled Covert Mission: Undercover Cop.
            Here’s a brief excerpt:
Her hand fumbled with his belt and he reached down to undo it himself, gratified when she immediately loosed the snap on his jeans and lowered the zipper to take him in hand. Cool fingers did nothing to cool his longing for this long-legged beauty as she began to work his cock, her fingers sliding up and down the length of him until he thought he’d go mad with want.
He cupped her mound through her clothes, pleased at the dampness he found there as he rubbed back and forth, his other hand busy undoing her jeans. Soon, they’d shoved the rest of their clothing to the floor and he lifted her in his arms to lay her gently on the bed, before lying beside her.
The moonbeams cast a silvery glow to her features, her midnight black hair now seeming to shine with a silvery aura. “You are so beautiful,” he said as he smoothed the hair back from her face. He leaned forward, planting an array of kisses across her forehead, her nose and then finding her mouth again. One arm slid beneath her and he hugged her closer, content to let his other hand roam at will. He loved the feel of her, the satiny texture of her skin, the silky smooth length of her hair as his fingers sifted through it to caress the nape of her neck.
All too soon, it wasn’t enough. He worked his way down her body, stopping enroute to suckle and knead her breasts until she squirmed beneath him in glorious abandon. Whatever inhibitions she’d had were gone now, lost in a sensuous sea from which he hoped they’d never return.

Q        How long have you been writing?
A         I’ve always known I wanted to write. As a child, I was constantly writing short stories and poetry. I won an award in grade school for an essay I’d written, and in grade nine, a poem I wrote for Remembrance Day was published in the Royal Canadian Legion’s newsletter. In the 90’s, I wrote for children and published a few books and posters, which were accepted as guidance resource in NB schools.
            Now my children are grown, I have time to write the kind of stories I enjoy reading.

Q        What is your favorite genre? To write or read?
A         I’ll read just about anything, but my favorite genre to read and to write is Romantic Suspense.

Q        Where do you prefer to write? What do you wear? And eat? (OK, I know this is cheating as well, but we need all the gen in our naughty nine)
A         I write at my desk whenever the muse strikes, usually part of the day and long into the night. Comfy clothes are a must, mostly pj’s or shorts and T-shirts. As a diabetic, I have to eat regularly, but I most often eat meals at my desk. It gives me time to read over what I’ve just written or check emails and such.

Q        So three things you love
A         I love reading and writing; family and friends; the long days of summer and the changing colors of autumn.

Q        Three you don't.
A         I hate typos, cold weather and shoveling snow.

Q        Three things you would like to happen in the next three years? Feel free to add the three things you don't.
A         I’d really like to have better health, bills caught up and more books published.
            I don’t want to gain any more weight! Other than that, I tend to concentrate on the positive. J

That's it! Painless, eh? Thanks for dropping by and giving us a peek into your life. Feel free to add any links to blogs, websites, etc., so we can all find out what you are up to.
