Guest Blogger - Ava Rose Johnson

Please welcome my guest today, Ava Rose Johnson. She's put her little ol' body in the hot seat to answer some pertinent (and impertinent) questions.

1. What are your nicknames?
In selected company, I'm often referred to as 'Sexpert'. My sister thinks it's hilarious that I write erotic romance!My friends sometimes call me Lulu too. I have no idea where that comes from :)
2. How does your hair look currently?
I wish it looked shiny and full of bounce but unfortunately the answer is messy. Very very messy.
3. What’s new in your life right now?
My trench coat. I got it half off in a sale! Also, there's a couple extra pounds floating around my stomach area. Fall always makes me want to eat!

4. How many colors are you wearing now?
Including eyeshadow??? 8. I'm a colorful person!

5. Are you an introvert or extrovert?
It depends on the company. With friends I'm an extrovert. But with strangers, I get very shy.

6. What was the last book you read?
Marley and Me. Sooo cute. Though I bawled like a baby.

7. Who is your favorite super hero?
Batman. He's so darn sexy, especially when Christian Bale is playing him :)

8. What has made you happy these days?
Lucy's Neighbors was released from Ellora's Cave on 18th September and I've already received fanmail for it! I loved writing that book. Menages are always fun *wink*.
Here's the blurb:
Lucy Hills has lusted after her two sexy neighbors since she moved into her condo a year ago. She never would have believed that either Steve or Doug would be interested in her—she is a woman after all. So when they invite her over for dinner, she expects nothing more than friendly conversation. But the night soon spins into an explosive combination of Lucy’s sexual fantasies, and being ravished by two men turns out to be even better than she’d imagined.
Steve and Doug have been together nine years and they’ve shared many beautiful women. But Lucy is the first to steal their hearts. For months they’ve dreamed about getting her out of her panties and now they’ve had a taste of her honey, they want her for keeps. But convincing Lucy that a three-way relationship can work isn’t easy. They’ll have to use everything in their power to keep her trapped between their bodies because they can’t lose her now. She’s the one.

And another new one from Ellora's Cave, Breaking Ground
Buddies since kindergarten, Ray Jenkins and Eric Richards have never crossed the line into a sexual relationship. But when Ray breaks the news to Eric that he’s leaving for war, their friendship suddenly slides into something deeper, and what’s intended to be a guys’ night in turns out to be a guys’ night in bed.
Two years later, their one night of hot sex is a distant memory and having heard nothing from Ray since his abrupt departure, Eric can’t believe it when his old friend shows up. Using his mouth and his hands, Ray makes it clear how much he still wants Eric, and unable to resist, Eric falls right back into Ray’s bed. But fear that Ray will leave again holds him back, and despite the passion growing between them, Eric can’t let go of the pain he suffered while Ray was gone. Ray has to convince him that this time ’round he’s not going anywhere or else their burgeoning relationship will be over before it has the chance to begin.

9. What’s your current obsession?
Post-its. I can't live without them. Also, melons. They're yummy and very healthy too.

10. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
If I was getting up at a reasonable hour, then maybe thirty minutes. But as I usually have to rise and shine at 6am, my co-ordination is worse than a zombie's so it takes a little longer.

11. What’s the last thing you laughed about?
An "Everybody Loves Raymond" re-run. Raymond's mother created a sculpture that resembled a very intimate body part. The funny thing was that she didn't notice the resemblance!

12. What’s the last song that got stuck in your head?
"Hurt" by Christina Aguilera. One of the contestants on X Factor (the UK version of American Idol) sang it and she did a fantastic job!

13. What’s the last movie you saw?
"500 Days of Summer". I adored it until the end. I felt jipped as I walked out of the movie theater. :(

14. What was the last story you wrote?
A sexy short for Ellora's Cave. It's set in an office and focuses on the mutual lust between an executive and his PA. It was very fun to write! Watch out for it!

15. Is there anything else you'd like readers to know about Ava Rose Johnson?
I like nothing better than to spend a Sunday in my pajamas watching old movies. And I really like ice-cream. A lot!

Thanks so much for visiting today, Ava. We share some of the same passions. ;~D I love ice cream and watching old movies, too!
