Hi! To start off, please tell us your name, where you’re from, and what you write.
My name is Seelie Kay and I live near Milwaukee, WI. I write sizzling short stories about lawyers in love, with a dash of kink.
How did you become an author? Please share a bit of your journey with us.
I have been writing since I could hold a crayon. My mother saved copies of the letters I wrote her as a preschooler, decrying my punishment for some offense. I started writing national awards for writing in grade school. I have worked as a journalist, writer, author, and editor most of my adult life.
What are you working on now? Do you have a recent or upcoming release?
My latest book, Kinky Briefs, Cinque, was released June 1. It’s a collection of 10 short stories that range from sweet to erotic romance. Some are stories and/or characters continued from prior editions of the Kinky Briefs series, and others are new. I also have a novella, The President’s Wife, coming out July 4.
Please tell us your favorite holiday and why.
It’s the fourth of July—Independence Day in America. This year we are celebrating 242 of freedom under one constitution. I think that is amazing. It’s also part of the reason I became a lawyer. I believe in truth, justice, and the rule of law.
Please share one piece of advice to aspiring authors - what do you wish someone would have told you? Or, what did someone tell you that you’d like to pass on to others?
I wish someone had told me I would be working harder than I ever had in my life, and as a former journalist and lawyer, that’s saying something! Writing books involves more than the act of writing. There are so many administrative details, like editing, filing for copyrights, and marketing. That consumes an incredible amount of time.
