#Guest Author #Interview w/ @SeelieKay #RB4U

Welcome to Romance Books 4 Us, a place for all romance and all genres. We’re very happy to have you here with us today. First, tell us a little bit about yourself…

Please tell us a little about yourself...

My name is Seelie Kay. I have been writing sizzling short stories about lawyers in love, with a dash of kink, since February 2017. I come by the stories honestly—I am a former attorney and my fantasies are drawn from real life experiences. Since last February, I have published six books, four of them collections of short stories encompassed in the Kinky Briefs series. In addition, The Garage Dweller—which is based on a true story—was released last July and A Touchdown To Remember came out last December. The President’s Wife is set for release in July and Kinky Briefs, Cinque is a work in progress.


Do real life events find their way into your stories?

Lawyers are rather quirky people. In my more than 20 years in law, I have encountered almost every type of personality in a wide range of roles—from respected attorneys and U.S. Supreme Court Justices to ambulance chasers and sleazy criminal defense attorneys. Some I loved, some I despised, and some I barely noticed. But all of them have been catalogued in my subconscious and they emerge when I need them!

Do you ever mimic family members or people you know when you choose characters? My characters are a bit like Tinker Toys. Each is an amalgamation of multiple parts. So each character has the attributes of many…I want my lawyers to be interesting and complex.

Do you find yourself going back to the same inspiration for each story or is it always something different? I find inspiration in everything, from a conversation with a stranger to news story or a dream. And when something strikes me, my imagination just takes off. Thank God for the recorder on my phone. I have a year’s worth of stories catalogued there.

When do you write?  Early morning? During the day sometime or all day?  After the kids go to bed?  I have two lives. In one, I ghostwrite for professionals, in the other, I write romance. In the former, I am very disciplined. I write when I receive the assignment. On the other hand, I write romance when the inspiration strikes me. Sometimes, I write for eight hours without looking up. Because I am so disciplined with clients, I have the freedom to run with an idea when inspiration strikes in my author role.

Is there any other genre that you would love to try writing?  If so, what is it?  True crime and/or detective stories. I love a puzzle—I was once a investigative journalist. Researching, digging underneath the surface is in my blood. I also want to write a biography, which I have already researched. I just need to carve out the time.

Do you ever see yourself as the heroine/hero or find yourself relating to them when you write a story? All of the time. I can’t deny that my personality and my life experiences emerge from time to time in my stories.


When you need a break or some time off from the trials of being a writer, what can you be found doing? Cooking huge meals or baking a luscious dessert. Turtle brownies are a favorite!

Is there anything about yourself nobody knows that you would like to share with our readers?  I went through seven surgeries in five years and the repeated anesthesia left me in a fog. I could barely think, much less write. It was a very frightening time. (I later learned it can take up to a year for anesthesia to completely clear out of your system after surgery and the combined effect can be devastating.) But when the fog finally cleared, my mind took flight and I began writing more creatively than ever before. I feel like I was given a second chance at life and I don’t intend to waste it!

 Kinky Briefs, Quatro by Seelie Kay

Take another kinky voyage through Lawyerland!

Indulge in a walk on the wild side with these sizzling short stories about lawyers in love, with a dash of kink. From painting well-hung nudes at a networking event or thwarting terrorists intent on harm to finding love despite a chronic illness or exploring kink on a train, these lawyers pursue love with a vengeance. And while affairs of the heart may come in all shapes and sizes—a law school ménage a trois, a middle-aged A.G. and a law firm associate, and a new marriage suddenly threatened by a spouse long believed dead—these relationships thrive despite the odds. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and yes, the resultant loin heating might even make you blush, but in the end, you’ll run out and buy a set of handcuffs. Because that’s the only way to defuse the sizzle created by these hot, sexy stories.
