I write about Sassy, Sensual heroines and the Alpha Males that love them, flaws and all. Siera London is the author of twenty-two contemporary fiction novels and novellas . She is a native Floridian who served 22 years in the United States Navy as a registered pediatric nurse practitioner and nursing clinical instructor before deciding to focus on her writing career. Her debut novel, Chasing Ava, was an Amazon Best Seller in the contemporary romance and women’s fiction category.
Siera currently lives in the northern Virginia with her husband and their color patch tabby kitten named Frie. Her love of coastal towns and bustling cities shines through in her sassy and sexy storytelling.
I am a pet lover at heart. I would gladly welcome more furry friends into the household; however, I had to guilt my husband into the tabby.
When she’s not writing she loves to get lost between the pages of a great book and travel.
What is your opinion on books being banned? For centuries women’s lives were omitted from literature; our stories were confined to personal journals and ladies’ magazines. Banning books is a slippery slope that I prefer to stay away from. Books representing different viewpoints and idealogoies capture relevant themes that are often neglected or marginalized in the mainstream media and literary canons.
What is something that keeps you motivated as an author? Connecting with authors and readers via Facebook gives me energy. It’s hard to find people in my offline life who love books as much as I do. Social media links me to an entire world of romance lovers…that’s all the motivation I need. 😀
Why is writing important to you? As a kid, my family who call on me to recount their stories because I would instinctively add inflections in my voice, invoke emotion, and sweep my arms and / or legs in grand gestures. I’m a natural storyteller, so writing is an extension of who I am.
How much real life do you put into or influences your books? My earlier books are heavily influenced my personal experiences. But, now I find myself crafting stories on themes or current events that interest me. In my previous life I was a US Navy nurse, so I’m still partial to military heroes and heroines.
What is the hardest part of writing for you? Hmm, this is a HARD question. In my opinion, what’s difficult about crafting a story is different for every book. Currently, I’m editing the final book in the Bachelors of Shell Cove series. The coronavirus pandemic and subsequent stay-at-home mandate has disrupted my writing routine. Of course I am following the official guidance that we keep me and my community healthy, but I’m struggling to stay on task.
What are your current projects? Losing Logan is the final book in the contemporary interracial romance series the Bachelors of Shell Cove. Pediatric surgeon, Logan Masters is at the top of his game professionally and personally. He’s first in line for the Chief of Surgery position, and the woman of his dreams has agreed to his marriage proposal. Everything he’s ever wanted is within reach, but an unforeseen enemy’s attack, leaves Logan physically wounded, his livelihood and lover in jeopardy.
My short erotic romance series, the Lunchtime Chronicles is gearing up for Season 3 in October! There are 16 steamy quick reads available in Kindle Unlimited. Start reading on your lunch break and you’ll have a new book boyfriend by bedtime.
How much research do you do for your books? Research can be a huge time suck for me. I write my books FIRST, and then I research any details needed to fine tune the story or create my vivid imagery.
What would be your next best choice if not writing as a career? A talk show host or full-time podcaster.
Do you have any advice for new authors looking to make their own literary statement? Recognize at the outset that being a published author is a business and you are a business owner. Building a prolific and profitable literary life starts before you hit publish. Take the time to learn how to run an independent publishing business, it will save to years of costly ventures and failed projects.
How many books have you written? I’ve completed 25 novels / novellas in 5 years. My favorites are the ones that sell, lol!
If you could go anywhere at all on your next vacation where would you go? The Australian outback
Favorite social network and why? Facebook! Because, I don’t have to condense my thoughts into 140 characters! I write novels, not flash fiction, lol!
What was your “dream” job as a child? Broadway BABY! I still love live theater.
