Dear Kay Jaybee, I appreciate your taking the time to visit with us today.
1. What character was your favorite to write for in this story? Why?
That’s a really tricky question, for I became quite attached to all the characters in The Perfect Submissive- even the domineering Mrs Peters. However, I think my favourite has to be Jess Sanders, the brand new member of staff at the Fables Hotel. When the novel begins, Jess has no idea that the hotel’s fifth floor is kept exclusively for adult entertainment purposes- and that her new boss Mrs Peters, had designs on turning her into a submissive on the hotel’s payroll.
I enjoyed the challenge of turning Jess from a shy young admin clerk, who’s hardly had a sex life at all, into a sexually experienced submissive, with a growing hidden resolve that keeps her going through whatever is thrown at her. I loved watching Jess develop as she slowly accepted that Mrs Peters might be right - she could well be the perfect candidate for the Fables Hotel’s submissive assistant.
2. Which was your favorite scene to write?
My favourite scene as a writer appears in Chapter 3. The artist, Sam Wheeler has been staying at the hotel, and has prickled the curiosity of both Mrs Peters professional and personal nature. Having cajoled him into staying a little longer at the hotel with the suggestion of some erotic fun, Mrs Peters takes unexpected control of Sam in the confines of the staff lift- and before he has really registered the situation, she has him naked, handcuffed, and at her delicious mercy...
3. What was the hardest thing about writing this story?
Some of the scenes in the novel have the characters placed in interesting and unusual physical positions- especially towards the end of the book (I am not saying how!). The hardest thing was to make sure that the images inside my head translated to the page clearly enough for the reader to visualise them as well I did.
4. What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I guess my main quirk is that I write all my stories, be they short tales, novella’s, or novel’s, by hand first with my faithful ballpoint pen, into one of my vast collection of notebooks. Only when a story or chapter is complete, do I type it onto my laptop; editing as I go.
5. Where do you find your Inspirations?
My inspiration comes from anywhere and everywhere. A story idea can be sparked by a sound, a smell, an overheard conversation, or simply a picture or quote. In the case of The Perfect Submissive, my imagination was sparked by wondering what lay behind the doors of a very ordinary looking business hotel I saw from my train window as I travelled to London a few years ago. Needless to say, my mind didn’t stop at considering the hotel guest’s meals, meetings, and sleeping quarters!
