Gina, a self-proclaimed happily ever after junkie and cupcake connoisseuse, loves spinning contemporary tales of knee bending first kisses, unconditional love and super-hot sex. She broke out onto the romance scene with her #1 Amazon Bestselling erotic short story Her Five Favorite Words that’s been called a “deliciously naughty tale” by Joyfully Reviewed.

Frequently Asked Questions
What inspired you to write in your genre?
Megan Hart LOL. She made me fall in love with the genre as a reader and it stuck with me so deeply that when I started writing for publication, my characters demanded to have lots of hot, sweaty sex.
What three things do you need in order to write?
- My laptop
So what is your writing process?
There is always lots of coffee, good music, and my laptop. I have an office at home that I use as my cave but lately I’ve found the lazy boy in the den mighty comfy!
I try and write whenever I can, wherever I can. Since I do have a day job, I need to make the most of my time and sometimes that means writing the sexy times on a bus with someone beside me. Sometimes….it’s uncomfortable 🙂
Do you have a favorite author?
There is one author that in my eyes can do no wrong, Lorelei James. She is without a doubt my favourite in the genre today and I personally think her Rough Riders series is erotic romance gold!
I do have other authors on my must buy list, J.R. Ward, Jill Shalvis, Cari Quinn, and Bella Andre.
How old were you when you read your first romance book?
If Sweet Valley High and VC Andrews counts then I was in my early teens. If not, then I was much older–mid twenties. I was a late romance bloomer. I didn’t have a grandma with a trunk full of books in the attic to steal from LOL
What is your favorite part of a romance novel to read or write?
Definitely the happily ever after. I always look forward to the contented sigh at the end of the book.
What’s your favorite chocolate?
Peanut Butter Lindt
How did you come up with the concept and characters for the Madewood Brothers series?
The Madewood Brothers were created based on a real life sighting of hot chefs. I have a friend who went to a food event and one of the caterers was a duo of hot, tattooed chefs. She of course told me all about it and demanded I write about them.
