Author Showcase – Dan Cocker

Author at Horny Devil Publishing: http://hornydevilpublishing.com/smuttica/ 
 

Dan Cocker is a fifty something married Englishman. He lives as the only male in an otherwise all female household. Dan would be the last man to claim any special insight into the female mind, but he understands its mystery as much as any man. He lives with his wife, two daughters and a female cat in London, England. Dan is used to being at the bottom of the pecking order (though recently promoted to fifth by the passing of the family hamster). He writes about real men, real women in their real lives. How real are his stories? That’s for you to decide… 

 

Trapped in a sexless marriage, Paul, an aspiring author, finds himself slipping into the alluring world of erotic prose. Flattering reviews from his number one fan lead to a virtual relationship of a different kind. Role play becomes real play. Then his secret is uncovered by his wife, Samantha. Caught in the ethereal glow of his monitor screen, he freezes like a rabbit caught in headlights.

When Samantha finds Paul engaged in cyber-sex with a man, she fears for his sexuality, and their marriage. Realising that she has been neglecting their physical relationship, Sam wakes her husband with hot passion on her lips. With intimacy restored, she allows her curiosity free reign, unwittingly igniting deeply buried primal fires. When Sam is left alone with Paul’s virtual bull, she takes matters into her own hands. A meeting is arranged.

Will his reader inspire an exciting new chapter in Paul and Sam’s relationship, or will he be the author of the final chapter of their marriage?

 
Excerpt:
 
Trembling, she looked at me with moist brown eyes that were actually brimming with tears, though a smile played uncertainly on her lips. Shyly with lowered eyelids, but she glanced quickly at Dan quickly before returning her gaze back to me. He reached down and grasped the hem of her skirt, pulling it up again until we could both see her panties, this time from the front. Her mound was prominent through the clinging fabric, fine black neatly trimmed curls clearly visible. A dark stain was spreading from the deep cleft between her legs just as if she had wet herself.

Interview with Dan Cocker


Welcome, Dan Cocker. For those who might not be familiar with you, would you be a dear and tell the readers a little about yourself? How did you get your start in the writing business?

Oh my! Is that what I have done?! I never thought of it as business, but then you might not mean that literally either. I’ve not been writing ‘commercially’ for long, I’m not even sure that I am going to keep going either. I like to create and have just discovered creating using words as my shades and colours. 

 
All writers fear the dreaded “block”. Please tell us how you handle it.

Not very well! I had writers block for 52 years and only now have managed to get beyond a page!

 

Contrary to what some people envision about a romance writer’s life, it’s not all glitz and glam. Well not for the majority of us. With that bubble sadly busted, when you’re not writing, how to do you spend your time?

Doing ‘family stuff!’ – repairing toilet flushes, changing light bulbs and traipsing around food stores or carting family members around in the car.

 

I know many writers, such as Dirk and myself, keep their pastime/career a secret. Do those close to you know you write? If so, what are their thoughts?

Yes they know I write, but they roll their eyes, lift their eyebrows, shake their heads and pretty much ignore it!

 

Will you share with us your all time favorite authors? If you’re like me, it’s a long list so give us your top ten

Errr… Tolkein, Lewis Carrol, Stephen Donaldson…Stephen King….ten you said? Hmmm…Alastair Maclean, ten? Really? Ten … Richard Adams…actually I have to confess that I don’t really follow a particular author, I like particular works, for example, The Lord Of The Rings I loved, because of the richness of the landscapes he painted, but I did not enjoy The Silmarillion. I loved ‘To Kill A Mocking Bird’ but I believe that was her only book? Also I think I might have liked the movie and then read the book, so that doesn’t count!

 

If you could choose one book to go to the big screen, which book would you choose and whom would you love see casted in the parts?

One book? Not one of mine? It would have to be The Chronicles of Thomas Covenent and a middle aged Harrison Ford in the lead role.

 

Would you care to tell us what you’re working on now? That is if it’s not top-secret information. If so, just whisper it in my ear. I swear it’ll go no further.

Princess of the Fall, it is my first intertwining of my non sex fantasy and sex fantasy work!

 

Where can we find your stories and is there a particular reading order?

Amazon, and all over the place and no!

 

Would you please share how your present and future fans can contact you?

Before we wrap up this enlightening interview, do you have anything else you’d like to share? The stage is all yours.

Writing is my pleasure, it allows me to create things that I do not have either the resources or the skills to create in any other way. I do a little painting, recently trying digital work with Coral Painter and Photo Shop, but I have realized that I don’t have anything like the skill of the professionals.

But with words I have discovered I can create stunning tapestries, glorious landscapes, engender fear and ecstasy! I can also make people do stuff they might never do for real, which is not only exciting, but brings with it a huge and unexpected responsibility. I feel I have just landed on the beach, like an ancient fish crawling out of the murky depths into a brave new world full of potential, with possibilities beyond my wildest dreams. I just hope there is enough time left to me to explore it! Of course I am not arrogant enough to think I am in any way special, I am just one of millions and at the moment I am lost in awe of others. But I hope I can realize my potential, even if that potential is to remain, metaphorically speaking, on the edges of a primordial swamp.


There you have it, ladies and gents. I want to again thank Dan Cocker for stopping by and I look forward to the next time we can sit down and dish.

Interview with Clair de Lune

       
     Welcome, Clair de Lune. For those who might not be familiar with you, would you be a dear and tell the readers a little about yourself? How did you get your start in the writing business?

  I never really intended to be a writer. I had a career. When I retired, I had time to read for the first time in years. Then I bought a Kindle and let myself loose on Amazon. I enjoyed reading BDSM fiction and bought some factual books on the subject. I was getting bored with doing nothing but housework and gardening etc and the prospect of doing only that for the next lord knows how many years was depressing in the extreme. My youngest son challenged me to write a book myself, but I doubt he expected the one I did write. When it came to writing my first book, the genre was obvious, given my recent reading. Then, too, I’d always loved the Regency period and read widely about it; both fact and fiction so the Regency novel was no surprise either. My daughter just said “About time,” when I told her about “The Locket.”

        All writers fear the dreaded “block”. Please tell us how you handle it.
  So far I’ve been very lucky and there has been no really long period of blockage. The worst I’ve had to cope with is getting plot or characters into a situation I can’t get out of. I just leave it and go and do something else, usually catch up on housework with loud heavy metal playing in the background. I sleep on the problem and it gets sorted out in my brain in the night. More than block the edits, promo and other admin is a problem, as it stops me writing
     Contrary to what some people envision about a romance writer’s life, it’s not all glitz and glam. Well not for the majority of us. With that bubble sadly busted, when you’re not writing, how to do you spend your time?

 I still have a large family house and garden to cope with and it takes a lot of my time. I used to do a lot of sewing, mainly appliqué, making quilts and such but I haven’t done any of that for ages. I like to write to friends; that’s proper letters on proper paper!! I write emails as well but nothing beats a real letter to sit down and read over a cup of tea. I’ve made some good friends since I started to write and chat to them on Facebook. I swim twice a week too at the ungodly hour of 7:30 usually.

 I know many writers, such as Dirk and myself, keep their pastime/career a secret. Do those close to you know you write? If so, what are their thoughts?
  
My husband was stunned when I told him I’d had a book accepted, as he wasn’t even aware I was writing it. It took a while for him to become used to it but he and my children and the couple of old friends I’ve told have all been very supportive. Now he takes me out for lunch or buys me flowers on release days. 

     Will you share with us your all time favorite authors? If you’re like me, it’s a long list so give us your top ten.
In no particular order Jane Austen, PD James, Dorothy L Sayers, Sir Arthur C Clarke, Isaac Asimov, A E Van Vogt, James White, Murray Leinster, Anne McCaffrey, Cooper McKenzie, Sage Marlowe. This is 10 there are so many more I could have added.

 If you could choose one book to go to the big screen, which book would you choose and whom would you love see casted in the parts?
Kam this the most difficult to answer. “Initiation” is the one I’d choose. Sean Connery for Master Angus and Emma Thompson for Jane. 

     Would you care to tell us what you’re working on now? That is if it’s not top-secret information. If so, just whisper it in my ear. I swear it’ll go no further.

I am wrestling with two books both of them in the Prometheus in Chains. Master Rafael’s story and Jack the ex-Special Branch friend of Master Eric. I have two more of the Regency series in the begun and plotted stage and one about Hadrian’s Wall half written.

      Where can we find your stories and is there a particular reading order?
  
Prometheus in Chains are all stand-alone but they are better if read in order. As I found it frustrating when reading trying to figure out which book followed which in a series, mine are numbered on the cover and in the blurb. The same applies to the Dragons of the Cairngorms. The Locket is book one and there’s no book two yet so the problem doesn’t arise.

Can I please add that I do answer all emails and Facebook contacts and some of my fans have become good friends. Don’t hesitate to get in touch. You may think that we don’t have time to answer you but how can we tell if you enjoy our books if you don’t tell us? 


There you have it, ladies and gents. I want to again thank Clair de Lune for stopping by and I look forward to the next time we can sit down and talk.
