Bryan and Aubrey’s story continues in Rockin’ it Forever
Early response to Rockin’ it Forever…
“This book has it all: rocker musicians, incredible sexual chemistry, struggles with being in the closet, doubts regarding the relationship, intense feelings, and the amazing HEA with a forever kind of love.”
Morticia Knight Author Q&A Part I
Where are you from, and where do you call home?
I’m originally from the Los Angeles area – specifically the San Fernando Valley. Yes. I am a valley girl. Deal with it.
I escaped L.A. and now live on the northern coast of Oregon with raging wind and rainstorms and very loud, barking sea lions. I make the sea lions stay on the pier though, they’re not allowed inside.
What inspired you to start writing?
Crushing loneliness. I think I was five at the time. Both of my parents worked long hours, and I was essentially an only child because my brother and sister are so much older than me. Making up stories and worlds and other people was a great way for me to spend my time. And I don’t even hear the voices in my head anymore! *snort*
How long have you been writing?
Well, I guess the standard answer is all my life, but to be specific, I started seriously pursuing it when I was twelve. As in, the other kids thought I was a freak. I wrote all the time during class (I had my trusty spiral notebook wherever I went), but after they were done making fun of me, and class got reaaaallly boring, they became curious enough to ask me to read to them out loud. Soon I had them bugging me to finish the next chapter.
So, things started out promising, but sadly, I was turned down by one of the Big Six (back when there were still six of them) I was fourteen by then, so it was one of those devastating teen moments that you don’t bounce back from easily. In other words, I was completely delusional. Then I decided to pursue something much more likely to bring me success – the world of rock and roll. My profession for the next fifteen years was as a singer/song-writer.
Once I Ieft the music industry (and anyone who reads either of the Rockin’ books will get some insight as to why!) I turned my sights back on writing. I had to force myself to no longer write in rhyme, so there was a learning curve there. So, I’ve been writing fiction again since 2011, but for ten years prior to that, I was writing music bios, press releases, reviews and articles for entertainment mags. I was also the ‘as told to’ author on one music writer and one rock guitarist’s autobiographies.
One final side note: The song lyrics from both of the Rockin’ books are ones that I performed and recorded *wink*
What advice would you give a new writer just starting out?
I always say the same thing when asked this question: write as much as you can. Write every day or as often as humanly possible. Make your muse your bitch. Don’t let her call the shots. Even if you don’t feel like writing, do it anyway. Even if its total crap and you hate it, keep going. Because writing is like any other skill – the more you practice, the better you’ll get at it.
Bryan hid what he was certain would be a goofy grin behind his fingers. He didn’t need the older woman in the seat next to him on the plane to think he’d lost his entire mind. But the mutual masturbation with Aubrey in the shower that morning was emblazoned in his memory. Their inability to keep their hands off each other had left Bryan with precious little time to get to his hotel, grab his things then make it to the airport without missing his flight. Being trapped on the airplane for his journey from the west to the east coast was the first chance he’d had to relax and dwell on the previous couple of days filled with utter craziness. However, his immediate thoughts had landed on the visual of their slickened cocks rubbing together.
It was difficult to decide which event had him more thrilled, confused, elated, freaked out or stunned—that he’d had sex with his rock star idol or that he’d had sex with a man. He shook his head, unable to help himself.
“I’m sorry, but it’s inflight rules.”
Bryan jerked his chin up. “Huh?”
The flight attendant pointed at his laptop. “I said, you need to stow that for takeoff.”
“Oh! Sorry, I…uh, of course.”
His cheeks heated as if the pretty blonde attendant had any idea what sort of filthy thoughts had been drifting through his mind. She was the sort of woman he’d always been drawn to—confident, attractive, feminine. Another thought tried to wriggle its way into his ponderings, but he preferred putting it off for the time being. Everything had been so heated, so urgent between him and Aubrey—it had barely allowed him a moment to process the emerging lust and connection they now shared.
That was all real, right?
He idly played with the collar of his long-sleeved cotton shirt that was made up of a block plaid pattern in varying shades of blues and greens. Aubrey had commented on the colors, had said he liked the way Bryan’s lighter hair and deep blue eyes contrasted with them. Bryan allowed his fingers to travel under the fabric, to run across his clavicle. He couldn’t feel it—feel them—but he knew they were there. The marks Aubrey had sucked up on his skin. Then there’d been the rather prominent one Aubrey had asked Bryan to put on him so that everyone would know that Bryan was the one to whom Aubrey belonged.
It was silly, really, but it’d also been very sweet. People might surmise that Aubrey had been with someone, but they would have no idea it was rock journalist Bryan Gallagher. Bryan attempted to tamp down yet another unsettling thought and realized he was going to run out of space to hide from everything in his mind in an awfully short time.
