Interview with Bonnie Clarke
Tell us a little about yourself
I grew up at a fishing and hunting resort, way up north where the mosquitoes can carry you away. I eventually became a fishing guide on a lake large enough and populated by so many islands, it was easy to get lost for anybody with untrained eyes. That lake was my backyard. It was my curse and my salvation for reasons I won't get into. But I will tell you something, I know the truth about how tough men really are. Imagine a young girl baiting a hook for a man and cleaning his fish for him! muahahaahahahahahahah Next time your man comes home and brags about what he did in the bush, remember my words. It could save your marriage.
What do you write?
Erotica, Ero-Romance, and Poetry of various genres and forms.
Why do you write?
Because I have to. I truly believe if I didn't let the monkey pick the creative flees from my brain, they would fester and my free spirit would die. Seriosuly, I would go crazy if I ignored the urge to tell all what lies within my mind. And there's a lot.
What are you writing now?
My first erotic thriller and regency erotica. It feels great to be a virgin again. lol
What kind of clothes do you like to wear?
Jeans, tanktop, and flipflops, baby. Otherwise jogging pants or shorts at home. I've been known to put the garbage out in a negligee and drive uptown to check the mail in my housecoat. I don't give a damn what people think of how I look, can you tell? lol
Are you in love? Have you ever been?
Well, this man comes to my bed every night. I don't know how he figures he has the right to claim me, but he does. He is my mechanic after all, and pays for my car, so I don't argue with him. I just quietly accept his presence. Is this love that I'm feeling? Could be.*wg*
Do you have a dream lover-- and what does he look like?
Johnny Depp. Johnny, honey, someday... someday we will put the sun to shame.
What kind of comfort food do you like best?
What makes you laugh? Cry?
I laugh a lot. There isn't much that I take too seriously, but I'd have to say what I laugh at the most is how hubby looks when he comes home from work. On a hot day he'll be wearing shorts and work socks and boots, with a old muscle short with (what looks like) gun shot holes all over it, and of course his face has smudge marks. The best part is seeing his nipples through the holes in the muscle shirt. LOL! He looks so cute, makes me want to jump him when he gets home.
As crazy as this sounds, I was raised not to cry-- unless I lose those near and dear to me. I can honestly say that I've lived by that rule, and I know it isn't healthy, old habits die hard as they say. My frustration with this tends to come out in my dialogue between feuding couples. I'm sure I'm due for a good sob one of these days and it will probably be from a sappy movie. lol
What do you do to amuse yourself when not working?
I'm fortunate to have great neighbors, who are dear friends. We are die-hards. Rain or shine, we are out in the back drinking beer round the barby. When the beer runs dry we walk just down the street to the strip bar for some entertainment. It's all good. :)
What is it in a man or woman that turns you on?
A smile attracts me like a moth to the flame, as well as hands. I like big strong hands. Ones that can harm you, yet touch you like you're a delicate flower. But there are so many things about men and women that are attractive, it depends on my mood, and my mood changes like the weather. lol
What do you hate about life?
I hate being bloated.
What do you hope to achieve in life and when will you know you have been a success?
I will only be a success when my son has found his way in the world and is happy-- then I can put the whip down and relax. lol For myself, I want to be remembered as a writer who held nothing back and lived to see a few smiles from readers. I don't need to become the next famous author, I just want to be heard.
What are you going to write next?
A series about the street I live on which has a lot of history, mainly regarding the men who've lived here. I think it could be a x-rated soap opera! Would you watch a soap opera with porno tunes in the background, instead of the usual elevator music? HELL YEAH!!!!!
