It’s day four of our look at paranormal erotica authors.  And like many authors, Afton Locke writes in multiple genres, and it just happens that her newest release isn’t paranormal.  But let’s still maker feel welcome as we learn more about her and her writing.

Thank you for hosting me today. I’m excited to talk about why performers are sexy and Stripper With Spice, a contemporary romance about—you guessed it—a male stripper.

Why are performers sexy?

Think back to adolescence. Chances are you had a crush on a rock star or maybe an actor. The list of my past heartthrobs is pretty long. I’ve even forgotten some of them. Mick Jagger was one.  I listened to his music, read his biography, and even drew a picture of him. This phenomenon isn’t limited to adolescence either. I still find past and current performers incredibly sexy and still get crushes on them.

They even inspire me to write books. Stripper With Spice was inspired by watching male dancers at a romance convention. One in particular caught my eye and made me wonder what if? My next release, Jamaican Temptation, was inspired by a legendary performer of reggae music. I’m also working on a time travel that features a fictional R&B singer from the 1970s.
