Jen: Today we welcome D.F. Krieger to Romancing the Book. D.F., will you share a short bio with us?
D.F.: 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.
Jen: Tell us about your newest release.
D.F.: My newest release is part of the Coming in Hot Medical Romance Box Set, which releases on September 19. 2016. Here’s the blurb for the set:
Get a dose of romance, STAT! **Brand New and Exclusive** novella to novel length books.
Featuring NYT, USA Today, and Amazon bestselling authors, we’re Coming In Hot with paranormal to contemporary, and sizzling to seductive bedside manners by the doctors, nurses, paramedics, and more in this boxed set.
My story is Joy’s Edge. Here’s the blurb for my story:
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.
Jen: Describe your writing in 3 words.
D.F.: Eclectic, sexy, emotional
Jen: How do you remember ideas that come to you at odd times?
D.F.: I have Google Docs on my phone. I also have an app called Notebooks that isn’t ideal for longer writing, but great for jotting things down.
Jen: Is there a genre you’d like to write? Is there one you’ll probably stay away from? Why?
D.F.: I’m actually experimenting with writing under a pen name. Erotic horror. I have two really good story ideas, one of which I’m in the process of writing. You’ll never find me doing M/M romance though. I’m perfectly okay with the concept of homosexual relationships, it’s the umm..well there’s a certain style of you know what common in M/M relationships and it’s writing that that I am not comfortable with.
Jen: What’s the most interesting comment you’ve received about your books?
D.F.: “You wrote BDSM in a way that was realistic. I wish your character was real so she could be my Domme.” In regards to Delilah on Abduction Agreement.
Jen: What do you do in your free time?
D.F.: I take violin lessons, cross stitch, crochet, read, and play a crap ton of video games.
