Q&A With Phaze Books Author Marie Rochelle

What inspired you to write your book?

I was inspired to write the Drace Brothers series because I wanted to give my fans an amazing series about four handsome brothers. Men who could fall heads over heels in love with beautiful, strong and intelligent women and not be ashamed to pursue them with everything they had. A Taste of Love: Richard is the second book in a series of four books involving the charming Drace brothers.

I wrote Richard’s story because he was such a strong character in the first book: My Deepest Love: Zack. He wouldn’t leave my mind, so I gave him what he wanted and I’m very pleased with the end results. His love story had me missing it for weeks after I had typed ‘The End.’ I was very thrilled when I learned Phaze Books was going to reissue it with a new cover. Richard is an alpha male who was taught the meaning of the words true love.

You're in an elevator and have ten seconds to convince a reader to buy your book. What do you say?
A Taste of Love: Richard is a battle of wits between two head strong people that know they are in love each other, but neither one is willing to admit it. If you want to read about a rollercoaster ride of sexual tension that will eventually lead to an explosion of fireworks. Check out my latest release and you won’t be disappointed.

Who would you say were your biggest writing influences?
I know a lot of my writing influences came from all of the wonderful authors I read as a teenager. I loved how they were able to captivate me with their brilliantly written romances. I still remember staying up late reading in my bed while everyone else in my house was asleep. I hoped and wished for the same gift of story telling as them when I decided to pursue my secret dream.

Another thing that pushed me to pick up a pen was my mother. I watched how she would sit on the front porch for hours when I was growing up and get lost in the pages of her favorite author and seeing the sheer joy on her face as she turned the pages. The look pushed me to do the same thing when I finally decided to go for my dream.

What are you working on now? 
Currently, I’m working on two new books. They are Bikers and Bars, Book 2: Inked Griffin and Ceanna’s story. The second book is One Wish (sequel to So Much Better) Shay and Tate’s story.
