Professional sassypants and novelist, Mae Wood has been a bookworm her entire life.

She loves cheeses, complicated crafts that she'll start but never complete, and puns.

A while ago Mae decided that she needed to give up the fear that she couldn't write "great literature" and write what she wants to read.

And she wants romance. And laughter. And real life.

She wants heroines who are brave. Brave enough to be themselves and brave enough to fall in love. She wants men who are strong and kind.

So, what do you want to know about Mae? Drop her an email, ask questions, and she'll respond.

Visit her website for bonus content, including deleted scenes, sneak peeks, and
behind-the-scenes treats.

He doesn't understand the genres of Chick-Lit or romance at all. He's read through the first sex scene and then just couldn't tolerate it any longer. I don't take offense. I'd rather go on a 10 mile hike in the middle of summer than read the five volume biography of Lyndon Johnson he currently has his nose in. Our tastes in pleasure reading differ and that's fine with me. Nonetheless, he's my biggest cheerleader in this project and extremely proud of me.

My family has no clue I've written a novel. However, my two closest friends I consider family and they read my work as a serial. When I get a few chapters pulled together, they gobble them up and then tell me what they like, don't like, and want more of. It's partially their fault there is so much sex in "Risking Ruin." So blame them if you think it's too much!

As for them asking to read my book, my sister and brother would roll their eyes. They would never ask. My mother would be super supportive and probably really like it. And no one wants their father reading sex scenes they've written! (Okay, probably someone wouldn't mind, but I'm from the U.S. South where daddies and daughters pretend sex doesn't exist.)(less)

In the back of my brain I've been toying with a story about Erica. I'd love to know if readers would like more Erica. (less)
