Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
Hi all! I’m Dakota Trace, and I’m a multi-genre erotic romance author. I write spicy to sizzling tales of love. I usually write BDSM, Menage and dabble in Paranormal tales, but have recently branched out to include ageplay and M/M/F as well to my repertoire. When I’m not writing, I putt around the yard, garden, chase after my grandson, cook and lets not forget read. (God, do I love to read!). Oh yeah, I’m also the mom of three uniquely crazy kids. Ranging from 16-24, they have taught me nothing in life is ever black or white.
When you are writing, what are some go to’s that you needs? IE Foods to eat, noise level, place to sit.
I have to have music, coffee/soda and WRITE or DIE (a writing tool that I use for sprinting). Location isn’t all that important. I’ve written at the local library, my living room, my kitchen, bedroom, a nearby McDonalds, even the breakroom at the EDJ.
What are you favorite things about attending signings?
Talking shop with the other authors, and meeting the readers. I get to switch from Nana mode to author/reader mode. I just love books – both reading and writing them.
What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?
Well that’s hard to say. Depending upon the genre I have several but at the top of my list is Evangeline Anderson and Lorann Dohner. Ooooo, can’t forget Lora Leigh and Shelly Laurenston either. 😀
When you are writing, do you have a consistent schedule where you write every day at the same time or are you a sit and go on different days to get it done kinda person?
I usually write in the evenings during the week, since I work daytime hours. On the weekends/days off it’s an all day thing. (Basically anytime I can squeeze in around Nana duties and housework)
What is your favorite memory so far as an author?
Favorite Memory? Probably my first time at a true signing. (That would’ve been WOTR15) It gave me the signing bug and I had such a fun time. I got to meet Pauline Allen, and all the great ladies of WOTR.
Do you have a book that is your most prized possession? What is it and why is it so amazing?
My copy of Lora Leigh’s Tempting the Breed. It was my first erotic romance I ever purchased. I bought it when it was brand new from Barnes and Noble. I’ve probably read it over three dozen times in the past sixteen years. Even after my divorce and subsequent moves, I still have my now battered copy sitting on my bedside table.
