Author Bio:
Want to know about me? Milly Taiden (aka April Angel) was born in the prettiest part of the Caribbean known as the Dominican Republic. She grew up between New York, Florida and Massachusetts. Currently, she resides in New York City with her husband, bossy young son and their little dog Speedy.
She’s addicted to shopping for shoes, chocolate (but who isn’t?) and Dunkin Donuts coffee.

How I Relax
I love traveling. One of the most amazing things about going some place else is that you have the ability to leave it all behind. Traveling is so much for me. I can literally feel the stress drain away as I step on to that plane. One of my favorites places to go is Dominican Republic (the place I was born) My mom has a house out there. It is so fun. I get to hang out with friends from when I was a little girl, family, new friends and just enjoy myself. Sometimes in order to really relax, we have to get away from it all. Relaxing at home is a little more intense. I have to leave the house. Shopping tends to relax me. But not for myself. I love shopping for others. My sister, my niece, my kid, heck for giveaways. I don’t care. Shopping is just fun. I also love going out to eat in different restaurants. I am definitely a foodie. I joke around with my best friend all the time and tell her if I ever show up to her town (she lives in a very small town) the people are going to go up to her and offer her money to get rid of the diva. LOL. I am certainly a NYer. I love the spa, restaurants, and if I can pay for someone to carry my handbag, I would. I am so lazy LOL. But I admit to loving to hang out with friends and do fun stuff.  Relaxation comes in different forms. Sometimes just chatting through messenger with another author that understands my stresses and other times just with one of my girls who listens to my ranting and raving. Milly can get paranoid very often.

Blurb:
When Raine Bowe volunteers for a sleep study for the extra cash, she didn’t expect to wake in a lab or to be victimized by a mad scientist. She escapes with one objective–to find someone strong enough to wage war with the evil growing inside her.

Ryder Storm is a man with a reputation–the bad boy of his own universe. He doesn’t take prisoners, won’t give into a sweet smile, and doesn’t cut his pack an inch of slack. He knows the desperate woman in his bar is his the moment he lays eyes on her. He’ll give her anything she wants, except the one thing she’s begging for. Death.

Raine enlists Ryder’s help to unravel the mystery surrounding the hours she lost in the lab and to help tame the beast inside her. In their search for answers, the road will lead them to a twisted experiment involving shifters, humans, and the creation of the ultimate Alpha. He’s ready for the adventure and she’s ready for her answers. Neither are ready for the lust that calls down from the mating moon. But a wolf knows its mate, and an alpha will not stop until he or she gets what they want.

Excerpt:
Run!
The loud hammering of Raine’s heart drowned out the single word bouncing around her mind—and the dogs barking at her back. Their angry growls faded the faster she ran. A little further. Just a little more, and she’d be home free.
Trees swooshed past her with every step she took away from the small isolated facility. She ignored the hospital gown swinging against her legs and the blood dripping down her arms from the torn IVs. Barefoot, the rocks bit into the soles of her feet. None of that mattered. She had to survive. Her life depended on getting as far away from that place as possible.
Inhaling the comforting scent of mud, trees, and the wild, she barely heard the barking over the breeze rustling through the willows with each step she put between them. At any other time, she’d have dissected her reaction to the forest. Not now. And she didn’t stop. No way was she getting captured again without a fight.
Air beat in and out of her lungs in tandem with the pounding of her feet on the rocky ground. Moonlight filtered through the branches overhead, highlighting her path. Her hair caught on the tree limbs, snatching at the loose strands. Some of the hanging vines prodded her arms and stabbed her sides. Her breath hitched, and she missed a step, lurching forward. Something inside her tightened. Her arms swayed and her core muscles flexed. Before she face planted, everything balanced out. She blinked. More scared now than she’d ever been in her life. Something controlled her body and it had reflexes far superior to a normal human.
Moisture gathered in her eyes, blurring her vision. She blinked it away. Panic would only get her caught.
Raine glanced at the moon. It had shifted twice—now in front of her, rather than behind. She stilled. The trees rustled with the wind. An owl hooted. But she still didn’t hear the annoying bay of the dogs.
Ragged breaths beat hard in her ears. A horn’s blare sounded in the distance. Fear and excitement gave her a burst of energy. Cars meant help. She urged her body faster.
Street lights peeked through the trees. Air panted out of her chest. A second car honked, speeding past another. She was almost there. So close. Thank god. She was going to make it.
Slowing down at the edge of a hill, she darted glances around the now quiet street. No people milled about or walked around. Nothing. A big store, one she recognized from the one time she’d gotten lost in the shadier side of town, sat a block to her right. The sudden quiet made sense now. Nothing good happened this far south of Tempting Eats. It was known as the dead side. The thought alone gave her chills. Women went missing…all the time. That had been enough to keep her uptown in suburbia-peace-nation.
She glanced around, searching for anyone who might be waiting for her or even any of the dangerous men her neighbors said roamed the streets, but there was nothing, not a single being. Her feet hit the pavement in a rush. Once across the street, she hid inside a dark alley. The stench of rotting food and piss coated the air with a thick blanket of disease and chaos. Her throat convulsed, and the acidic taste of bile hit the back of her tongue.
Retreating, she took several steps toward the end of the street to a small motel. Its yellow, neon Vacancy sign blinked on and off with a buzz. A man’s yell pushed her to slink into the dark. The sound came from the shadows in front of the motel.

Excerpt:
This is it, Elizabeth thought as she pushed through the door to deliver a large batch of chocolate and vanilla sugar cookies to the display case. It was grand opening day for Guilty Pleasures, and she couldn’t be more excited or more nervous. Years of scrimping and saving had accumulated to this day. In a matter of minutes the bakery would be open for business, and their city would officially have their first taboo sweet shop.
Elizabeth took one final look around, making sure everything was perfect, when Felicia, her business partner and friend, appeared next to her, chomping on a fornication cookie.
Out of all the sugary creations crafted for the shop, Elizabeth and Felicia would agree these were the most fun to develop. They spent many wine-filled nights brainstorming and researching ideas for the inserts.
“What’s it say, babe?” Elizabeth asked, nodding toward the paper in Felicia’s hand.
Felicia laughed and read the naughty message, “Two heads are better than one, but three, now that’s what I call a party!” As she tucked the paper into her back pocket, she asked, “I forget. Was this yours or mine?”
“I actually think your man deserves credit for this one.” Grinning, Elizabeth grabbed the sampler plate off the counter and walked toward the front door, turning to take one final look around before the place filled up. She couldn’t be any prouder of the decor in her little slice of heaven. She glanced to her left and smiled proudly as she admired the photos on the wall. 
The food photographer they had hired did a fantastic job capturing the beauty and sexiness of several corset cakes available for purchase. But the icing on the cake, so to speak, was the mural to the right of the entrance. A local artist painted “What Are Your Guilty Pleasures” but the letters were actually naked people in compromising naughty positions.
Felicia giggled. “Oh yeah, it’s all coming back to me now. We definitely drank way too much that night.”
Nodding in agreement, Elizabeth turned on the neon sign and opened the doors for business.
Already, a few eager customers were waiting by the window. They actually applauded when Elizabeth stepped out of the shop door. She greeted them with a smile and offered them their choice of iced cocks or boobs. She wasn’t surprised the guests blushed when they made their selection and bit into the cookie. She expected to witness many rosy cheeks in the hours ahead of them—giggles too.
As the streets began to fill up with people going to work, Elizabeth tried to coax even more passersby into the shop with her funny shout-outs such as: “I bet our peckers taste as good as your man’s. No wait, even better!” And, “Our breasts are fantastic and all natural.” All the while she held up a naughty treat.
After the bell dinged behind her a couple dozen times, she realized the humorous approach to draw in customers was working like a charm. Now with them inside, she had no doubt every person who’d entered the shop erected from her dreams would be a repeat customer. And with this thought, she knew the many dinners of Ramen noodles were well worth the discomfort it cost her over the years.

And now…for the famous 21…

1. Tell us a little about yourself and your books.
(KAM) Kameron and Dirk, a passionate couple in and out of the bedroom, has decided to join forces and bring their erotic imagination to life with words. Their solo stories are electric; however, the works they create together will practically sizzle off the page. Yes, they might live in a quiet suburb neighborhood, but they’re anything but tame and unadventurous. A fact you shall read and learn about soon enough.

2. What genre(s) do you write?
(KAM) We write erotic romance stories – straight, lesbian, gay, and ménage.
 
3. What was it like to see your first book published?
(Kam) Dirk and I were both shocked and overjoyed to get accepted at Razor’s Edge Press / Changeling Press. We actually didn’t think we’d get picked up the first time out. Reviews, public and private, have been amazing. We are truly blessed!

4. How dear to your heart is writing? Do you think you’ll continue to write for the rest of your life?
(KAM) I’ve always loved writing. Many years ago, I wrote poetry. Then, I progressed to children’s books. Now, I’m only concentrating on erotic stories.
How long will we write? I guess that depends on how long people still love reading what we create. Let’s hope that’s many years to come!

5. Do you ever lock up?  Have those moments where you just stare at your screen and think, “Yeah…I got nothing”?
(KAM) I think it happens to the best of us. When it happens to me, I either seek Dirk’s advice or close the laptop to catch up on TIVO.

6. How difficult is it for you to come up with ideas for your books?
(KAM) Dirk excels in dirty talk so not very hard at all. <winks>

7. What about characters? Are the names and personalities difficult to develop?
(KAM) When I create a character, the name sort appears in my head. Magic! As for personalities, I don’t plan who will be shy, dominant, bubbly, etc. That develops as I start the interactions.

8. Do you ever find yourself struggling as a writer?
(KAM) The biggest struggle I have is balancing real life with fantasy life. I usually don’t write during the day and at night, it all depends on what’s going on. I try hard not to spend every night on the keyboard because that’s cuts into “adult” time and we can’t have that. <grins>

9. About how long does it take for you to complete a book, from concept to completion?
(KAM) The answer to this question varies depending on school, health, conferences, and various pop-up obstacles. When luck is on my side, I can get a draft down in a month. When it’s not, WIP’s sit in a file until the distractions have eased up.

10. Do you have a ritual before, during and after finishing a book?
(KAM) Nothing before or during, but after…..I do one helluva happy dance!

11. Do you have a special time or place to write?
(Kam) Night time: Red/black oversized flannel robe, end spot of the sectional, and a bowl of plain popcorn.

12. Any funny experiences or quirks you’d like to share with your readers?
(Kam) Hmmm, not off the top of my head.

13. How do you find the time to balance your writing and family life?
(KAM) When the kids are awake, it’s family time unless we’re doing edits. Then, Dirk and I take turns entertaining the kiddos while the other works. We are truly a dynamic team! 

14. How much down-time do you take between books? Or do you just jump right into the next?
(KAM) Lately, we haven’t been working on one idea after another. We’ve been undergoing home renovations and as I am typing this, we have half a bathroom stripped of wallpaper. Speaking of which, I better type fast and get back to work. The bath guy will be here before I know it.

15. Do you have any interesting hobbies that you enjoy?
(KAM) I love to work on the yard – brick work, sawing trees, shoveling dirt. I am a total tomboy. Dirk loves to build and work on his Mustang.

16. If you could visit any place in the world, where would it be?
(KAM) I want to visit all of Europe so I will pick the entire continent.

17. What’s next on your agenda?  Any new books in the works?
(KAM) Now that “Naughty Delights” is signed, sealed and delivered, we will either open up two WIP’s that have been on the backburner for a while OR maybe write a sequel to the bakery story. Unsure right now.

18. What advice would you give to others who want to make writing their career?
(KAM) Not every author is lucky enough to get contracted the first time out. Many times, it takes several submissions. Rejection letters are hard but if you have the PASSION to write, then never give up on your dream. Remember, all it takes is one yes and then your foot is in the door FOREVER!

19. What authors inspire you?
(KAM) So many but I will give you a few names from my bookcases: Pamela Palmer, Cheyenne McCray, Christine Feehan, Kresley Cole, Lora Leigh, James Patterson, Lara Adrian, Gena Showalter, Karen Moning, and Jaci Burton.

20. What’s something unique about you that not many people might know?
(KAM) I do not like to cross bridges over water. For many years, I’ve dreamt an earthquake occurs when I’m crossing one, the bridge breaks and my vehicle plummets to the water. SCARY!

 21. Is there anything you would like to share about your writing and publishing experience that might inspire and support new and struggling writers?
(KAM) If you get blocked, just walk away. Come back to it, not when you have free time, but when you feel compelled to carry on the story.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit with us here today!  Now, inquiring minds need to know…where can your readers stalk you?

(KAM) Thank you so much for having me here. As always, it was a pleasure speaking with you.
