Australian author Kylie Scott is a longtime fan of romance, rock music, and B-grade horror films. She is based in Queensland with her two children and husband – and she took the time to answer a few questions for Louise’s Home Library.
Louise: Have you experienced prejudices from friends, family, or the public after writing and publishing (erotic) romances?
Kylie: There are always some people who look down on romance. But I usually find they’ve never actually read any, so their opinion doesn’t mean much. My family and friends have been very supportive.
Louise: Which books inspire you?
Kylie: The books that inspire me are ones like Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and Beauty by Robin McKinley. They have a heart and soul to them, a certain charm. I’ve read both of them numerous times.
Louise: Why do you think, readers devour and love “Lick” and other romance novels?
Kylie: I think we love romance novels because they’re about the close connections we make going through life. Plus they give us hope, they encourage us to be strong and keep going. You never know what good things are around the corner.
