Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
\My name is Vivian Ward and I write forbidden, ménage, dark, and contemporary romance. I’ve been writing for almost a decade and it is my full-time job. Reading and writing have always been my passion, and I love creating stories based on our hidden desires, intimate relationships, and taboo subjects that most can’t fathom talking about or sharing with others. Aside from writing, I’m an avid reader of all books naughty, suspenseful, dark, and smutty. I’m also a mom, wife, taxi cab driver, chef, maid, laundry attendant, professional shopper, and a fur mom to two awesome dogs. When I have downtime–who am I kidding? There’s no such thing as downtime! No, seriously, when I do have a few spare moments, I like going to bookstores to hit up the romance, suspense, and reference sections. As much as I love reading stories, I think it’s also important to study writing and have several bookshelves dedicated to books about editing, plotting, story arcs, character arcs, and much more.
Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?
Oddly, I like writing in public places. I get a kick out of knowing what I’m writing and laugh at the fact that nobody around me would ever guess I’m writing about ménages or dirty romance. One of my favorite places to write is Starbucks. If I’m writing from home, I’m happy with any place that doesn’t have four kids screaming and fighting. LOL And there’s not any particular food or drink that must be present but I do have to have something to drink at all times. It doesn’t matter if it’s tea, water, soda, coffee, or something else.
What are you favorite things about attending signings?
I love meeting fellow authors but, even more than that, I love meeting readers! Without readers, I wouldn’t be where I am today. It’s so much fun to meet everyone, especially since majority of my time is spent at home, writing alone. The socialization is my favorite part because I’m naturally a people person and signings allow me to interact with everyone.
What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?
Tillie Cole. I’d love to meet her because I love her writing but I did get to meet Jamie McGuire, which I absolutely loved! I’d also like to meet Gillian Flynn. Okay, so I have more than one author that I’d like to meet but I’m only human so sue me. LOL It’s like opening a bag of chips, you can’t stop at one.
What author would you love to write with?
Honestly, several of my friends and I already write together and release special books for holidays and just for fun, and I love it. Sometimes the worlds are shared and sometimes they aren’t but it’s so much fun creating storylines and various ideas and then getting together to write them. For a co-write, I’d like to write with either Derek Masters (again) or Jillian Quinn. She’s one of my best friends and we bounce ideas off each other all the time.
What is your favorite memory so far as an author?
My favorite memory as an author so far would be the two different times that I earned orange bestseller tags and hit number one in multiple categories with two different titles.
