Interview with Lana Cordova

Lana Cordova. 

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 am
a twenty-two year old paralegal secretary working my way through college.  I’m studying creative writing, my lifelong
love.  I’ve always enjoyed reading
erotica, and I enjoy writing it even more. 
All writers fear the dreaded “block”. Please tell us how you
handle it.
So far, I’ve been lucky. 
The only real block I’ve experienced has been when I’m starting a new
book.  My way of dealing with it is to
just dive in and write.  I give myself
permission to make mistakes, and I always remind myself that I can edit later.
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 work and study. 
Fortunately though, I do sometimes get to travel with the law firm I
work for.  I’ve visited some amazing
places, and I take lots of notes about them for future books.
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 writing is completely secret.  I doubt that my closest friends and family
would understand why I write what I do. 
Fortunately though, I think erotica is becoming more socially accepted
because of the success of books like the 50 Shades series.
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.
I enjoy a variety of genres. 
My favorite authors include Patricia Cornwell, Stephen King, J.K.
Rowling, John Grisham, Vatsayana, Erica Jong, Xaviera Hollander, Sue Grafton,
Robert Kirkman.
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?
I would definitely want to see Binders Full of Women as a
movie.  It’s so scandalous.  I would love to have Scarlett Johansson star
as Jennifer Long and Ian Somerhalder as her love interest, Mark.  I’d cast Kevin Cline as the governor.  I’d choose Cillian Murphy as Walsh.
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.
Sure! I’m working on a new novel called Breaking Bobbi.  It’s a romp in the Bluegrass for bad girl
Bobbi Foster who has just been sentenced to hard labor on a Kentucky horse farm
for her role in a major corporate embezzlement scheme.  It was better than jail, she had to admit,
but it was backbreaking work for a woman used to the posh lifestyle of a
Fortune 500 CFO.  And that farm manager,
Enrique del Vega, he was too demanding, too vigilant, and too determined to
break Bobbi’s bad streak.  It didn’t help
that he was Latin and luscious.  Stay
tuned for the upcoming release of Breaking Bobbi!
Where can we find your stories and is there a particular
reading order?
There is no reading order. 
My two most recently released books, Duty to Warn and Binders Full of
Women, are available at: 
Amazon and Smashwords

Before we wrap up this enlightening interview, do you have
anything else you’d like to share? The stage is all yours.
Nothing pleases me more than creating wonderfully sexy
escapes for my readers.  I want to take
them away from their cares and share adventure and romance with them. 
There you have it, ladies and gents. I want to again thank Lana for stopping by and I look forward to the next time we can sit down and dish.
