One of the cool things about Facebook is that you get the opportunity to meet some wonderful people. One such person is author Alice Bright. She mainly writes short erotic stories. So here’s an opportunity to find out how this multi-published author is able to balance her writing career with her family life and what we can expect from her in a few weeks from now.
Alice, I’m delighted to have you here. Can you tell us how you decided to become an author?
I’ve always known that I loved stories, but it wasn’t until I was older that I decided to pursue a career in writing. I started out blogging, writing magazine articles, and creating articles for my local newspaper, but none of it really satisfied me. I finally decided to make the leap into indie publishing as an author and I haven’t been disappointed yet.
How do you balance writing with your family life?
This is a hard one for me since I have a husband and two little boys. The most important thing I do is not to let writing come in the way of family time. It’s difficult, but when we’re doing a family activity, I just shut the computer down and put the notebooks away. It’s too easy to start saying, “I just want to write down one thing.” Five hours later, that “one thing” has turned into eight chapters. I just don’t let myself go there.
What would your fans be surprised to learn about you?
When I’m not busy writing erotic short stories, I love to read horror and fantasy books. J.L. Bourne and Z.A. Reicht are two of my favorite authors and their stories are both centered around zombies and apocalyptic themes.
Here’s an opportunity to tell us in a few words your favorite:
Author: Z.A. Reicht, J.L. Bourne, Alice Sebold
Band/singer: The Violet Burning, Bon Jovi
Movie/TV Show: Game of Thrones, Firefly, Jericho

Tell us about the works you have published so far.
I’ve published a number of short erotic stories, including College Sweethearts, The Tattooed Girl and Hopeful on Valentine’s Day. I’m currently working on my first full-length romance novel, due to be published in late August of this year. Most of my stories focus on brief romantic encounters, so penning an entire novel has been a fun experience since I actually get to develop and play around with my characters a little bit more.
