Author Name: D. F. Krieger (there are 21 others too)

Author Bio:
When D. F. Krieger was banned from writing contests at her school, she immediately set it in her head that she would become a professional writer. Since then, she has thrown away her plans of world domination through books, but she still enjoys writing. By the time she pens her final book with a hand ravaged by age, she hopes to introduce her readers to many alternate worlds, lines of thinking, and captivating characters.
When she’s not writing, she can be found surrounded by rescue cats who call her, “Mom” while she’s cross-stitching, crocheting, painting, or playing video games. Her family loves that she plays video games, though they refuse to play first person shooter games against her anymore because she makes an awesome sniper.
You can find D. F. on the East Coast, hiding away from the real world with a gleam in her eye and a plot in her head. She resides with her husband, kids, and pets; who all kindly put up with her random bouts of laughter—over things she can’t explain—and journal collecting fetish.
Wanna keep an eye on D. F. online? You can find her at her website where she updates what she’s working on and occasionally posts to a blog.

Joy’s Edge by D.F. Krieger BLURB:
Joy wants two things from life—to be the best damn veterinarian possible, and to meet a Dom who can handle her deepest desires. The problem is finding a man who knows the difference between "no" and "make me."
When a new potential Dom starts messaging her on the kink site she frequents, she's torn between making her dreams a reality or letting her desires be nothing more than talk.

I clicked the computer off without responding to that. How was I supposed to? I’d tried to dominate him, flat out. The man had effectively turned the situation around to his advantage. As much as it chaffed, it also thrilled me. Maybe I’d well and truly met my match. But would I give in to his command?
Knowing time was of the essence, I darted to the bathroom and took a shower. The idea of going to dinner wreaking of barn, antiseptic, and cleaning agents didn’t appeal to me. I was sure it wouldn’t exactly incite desire in my dinner date either. Then again, he’d seemed perfectly at home in the barn. Normally, I would have enjoyed my little friend I had stashed in the shower, but I’d set a pretty restrictive time limit so the vibrator would have to wait…again.
“If I don’t get some kind of action before this night is over, by his hand or mine, I’m going to scream,” I grumbled to myself as I towel-dried my hair.
I picked out a cute little sundress that fell just past my knees. A date was a date, after all. When it came time to slip my panties on, I hesitated. Would he really spank me in the parking lot? How would he know if I didn’t wear them? Maybe I should wear them, then decide over dinner whether they stayed after I had a chance to get an idea of his personality.
Yes, that’s what I’d do. I would wear the damn things, and see if he was even worth taking them off for.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
Two things, actually. There is a difference between forced seduction and rape, and there’s a difference between a Dom and a power-tripping asshole. Can I say that word on here?
Was there an Author who inspired you to write?
There’s lots of authors who inspire me in different ways. Both authors I’ve read but never spoken to, and authors whom I support that support me. The point is to regard each other as inspiration and not competition.
How did you come up with the characters in your books?
Oh darling, I don’t come up with them. They march up, get in my face, and instruct me how to write their story.
What are your current projects?
I have several I’m working on simultaneously, and even a horror erotica pen name I’m secretly cultivating. Well, I suppose it’s not so secret anymore, eh? For current things, you can check my website. I keep a “In Progress” section.
Do you see writing as a career?
I do, but I also understand that life is mean and doesn’t always allow it to be your only career. I also believe that your career as an author is only as serious as you make it. If you release a story once a year, do nothing to promo, and don’t involve yourself in the writing community, it will forget you are a writer and you won’t have many sales. Your sales are as prolific as you are. But don’t make the mistake of valuing quantity over quality.
Do you ever picture yourself and one of your heroines?  If so, which one?
I think, in essence, I see a little of myself in all of them. But never has one completely represented me. I’m just not that exciting. ;)
Do you have a favorite heroine/hero from one of your books? If so, who?
I don’t think I’ve ever written a character I didn’t care much for. But, to be honest, my character Tabby from Rekindled Desires (a different series about using sex journals to work heal marriages) is one of my all-time favorites.
What kind of research do you do for your books?
I’m actively involved in the BDSM community. It keeps me from making common mistakes, and ensures my representation of Dom and sub relationships are accurate and follow the rules for the lifestyle.
What is the hardest part of writing your book?
Sex scenes! OMG, I slog through sex scenes. I always worry I’m not doing a good enough job so writing them takes me foooreeeever.
If you could say anything to your readers what would it be?
Oh hai! *waves* I really hope you’ll give my stories a chance. If you aren’t into BDSM, I do have other stories to choose from.
What is your favorite Genre and why?
I don’t have a particular favorite. I really bounce around a bit. I think I’d get burned out if I buckled down on just one.
Do you prefer to write alone or do you like to collaborate with other authors?
I’ve done both, and both have their perks. I’m actually considering writing another co-authored story with my favoritist editor/crit partner ever, Max Ellendale? Have you read her books? If not, you totally should!
Do you ever get writer’s block? If so, how do you get through it?
I have, I do, it suuucks. Honestly, doing something else creative like cross stitching helps a ton.
When you are reading a book, who is your favorite author?
Out of people I know, Max Ellendale. Her worlds are so involved and her characters have real life issues that they don’t just miraculously solve. Otherwise, I’m on a HUGE Karen Marie Moning kick right now. I just finished her Fever series.
Do you come up with the cover or does someone else do it?
I usually go through stock photo sights to find the image that jives the most with what I have in my head of the couples. This also helps me cause I can cater details to the cover image. Then I send the image to my cover artist and she makes it look gorgeous.
If you could change anything in your writing what would that be?
I’d find the time to write more often. I have a really bad habit of choosing video games over writing when I do get free time. And considering I work two part time jobs, have 3 kids (one of which is only 1) and am currently a full time student in college, free time is rare.
What book if any would you want to be made into a movie?
I’m not sure. I don’t watch movies much…or tv, for that matter.
Who would you want to play the hero/heroine?
Can we say Karl Urban for the hero? Or Luke Evans? Those are my crushes.
Everyone uses computers, tablets, phones and no one uses handwritten form or typewriters, what do you prefer to use?
Actually, I tend to handwrite lately. It allows me to write in environment not always conducive to a laptop. For example, writing while my son is in therapy, or I have a certain restaurant I know most the staff at and I’ll order my food and write and they inspire me by getting excited and asking questions about the story.
Is there a ritual you do everything before you begin your book?
No, but a couple of friends of mine have suggest that I start writing out quick plot cards to help with my memory issues. They do it, and it seems to be a brilliant idea, so I’m going to start doing that.
What do you do when you finish your book and turn it in to the editor?
I wait for Max (my editor) to message me laughing at some ridiculous typo or to ask me questions about my story. It’s a great interactive way to figure out if I’ve accidentally assumed a reader knows something because it’s in my head, but I didn’t convey it on the page well enough.

Thanks for having me! I truly appreciate the opportunity to visit.
