Skylar: When and why did you begin writing?
Faye: I always loved stories as a kid and it fascinated me how they were written. I would even try to write different endings to some of my fairy tales. By the time I started high school I was writing my own original poems and short stories. Several of my poems were published in local and international journals.
Skylar: Why/how did you start writing romance?
Faye: I was about 15 or 16 when I wrote my first romance story. It was barely more than a couple of pages written in the back of one of my school books. I loved how I could write about two peoples life struggles but always give them a happy ending. I instantly thought “This is for me!”
Skylar: What inspires you?
Faye: Movies, music, other authors, etc? I find a lot of inspiration in music…all types of music too…my collection ranges from 1960’s rock to opera to more modern heavy rock. In more recent years though I have been able to find just as much inspiration from certain TV series and movies.
Skylar: What are you working on at the moment?
Faye: At the moment I’m waiting for edits for a third script titled “Mistress of Purity”. So while I wait for that I’ve started writing a new script called “Passions in the Dust”. It’s about a man who lives on a cattle station in Bowen, Queensland, Australia who buys a mail order bride from England. When she arrives though he discovers her to have been one of his mistresses back in England. There are cattle rustlers and many disasters happening on his station too. So that is managing to keep me very busy.
Skylar:Who is your favorite character from one of your stories and why? Favorite character?
Faye: Is it bad of me to say I love them all lol. But if I had to choose only one I guess it would have to be Rush Mullens, the heroine from my debut eBook ‘My Gift To You’. She’s a gutsy little thing who just doesn’t give much of a damn about the restrictions of society.
Skylar: If you get writer’s block when you’re writing, how do you get around it?
Faye: My husband is wonderful for getting me through writers block! He starts asking me about whichever story I’m working on at that particular time and asking me ‘why is this there?’ or ‘what happens next?’. He gets me talking about things until the story just starts to flow again.
Skylar: What’s your biggest writing achievement? Why?
Faye: I see all my published works as a fantastic achievement. I’ve been writing and submitting works for about 15 years now, so I know quite well how hard it is to get into the very competitive market of romance. I still literally jump for joy with every acceptance letter I get for a script.
Willow Jameson knew nothing of her family’s past or their connection to the Morgan family when she first met Re Morgan. All she seen was his ruggedly handsome appearance, his gentle words luring her into his strong embrace. What she found was a passion beyond compare.
She couldn’t have foreseen the lies and family betrayal that would inevitably rob her of the man she loved and forever change her life.
TEN YEARS LATER
Willow returned to the town life she loved so much, no longer ignorant to those who had separated her from the man she’d loved. She was back now to make those responsible pay for all they’d taken from her. In her search what she found was the hardened man Re Morgan had become…
…a man whose mere glance reignited a passion she had thought long since forgotten.
Re Morgan had left a horde of jilted lovers in his trail. When he seen Willow again across the crowded dancehall, he wanted nothing more than to add her to this list. Re wanted little more than a short, heated affair.
What he became involved in was far more scandalous than he could have ever imagined.
Willow stood with her back to Re, never able to see his approach. She didn’t even see the look of horror on his face…nor did he see the gleam of tears on her cheeks. All he saw was her being held in Chris’s arms, her body only a breath away from his. It was a closeness he knew was far from accepted in polite society.
It was a closeness he shared with her…had thought to only share with her.
Looking to his friend, Re silently pleaded with him. He needed to hear him say it was all just a misunderstanding. He needed him to put at ease the quickly growing doubt in his heart.
But he didn’t hear any of this. All he saw was the obvious lust gleaming in the young man’s eyes.
Chris cocked his brow, as if it was obvious their reason for being together. When Re looked at him, begging to know the truth, Chris’s smile turned into an obvious sneer.
Slowly, he shrugged his shoulders.
“How could I refuse?” he muttered, his words almost a whisper.
Hearing this short statement through her distress, Willow knew someone had found them. Raising her tear-covered face from Chris’s shoulder she tried to free herself from his unrelenting grasp. Realising her struggles were useless, she turned in his arms to see who had approached them. Only too late did she realise just how suggestive her position would look.
Her eyes’ meeting the hurt and pain in Re’s eyes, Willow knew instantly what he was concluding of what he was seeing.
“Re,” she whispered, almost desperate.
His dark stare turned hateful.
“Damn you both to hell!” he spat at them, immediately turning back to make a quick return to the estate house.
“Re,’ she again called after him, struggling against Chris’s tight hold.
When Chris didn’t let her go despite her struggles, she turned slightly and pushed him away with all her might.
“You son of a bitch,’ she spat at him, suddenly realising this man’s intentions.
“I may be, madam,” he replied casually. “Yet even you can’t deny what you wanted when you lured me out here.”
Her dark eyes narrowed with hate.
“I hope you rot in hell, you bastard!”
Turning quickly, Willow ran after Re’s retreating figure. She knew what he must be thinking, but he had to know she played no willing part in it. He had to know the truth.
“Willow,” Chris called after her, slight anger in his tone. “Damn it, you know you want this as much as I do.”
But she never turned back to him. She only kept chasing the retreating figure of the man she loved.
