Hey everyone! Today I have author Sharita Lira visiting Decadent Delights! So come on in, grab something hot to drink, and lets get to it, lol!
~ You’re marooned on a small island with one person and one item of your choice—who is that person and what item do you have?
SL: I better say my husband. *laughs* Other than the essentials, something that played music. An IPod dock, a record player, CD player, doesn’t matter.
~How do you come up with a title?
SL: The characters usually pick the title, or the muse. Believe me I’m just the fugure head. I let the muses play as they want.
~When do you do your best writing… morning, afternoon, evening, night?
SL: Night into early morning because the house is asleep. I have 2 small children.
~Out of all the stories you’ve written which one are you most proud of?
SL: This changes daily but it’s my m/m I just finished called Something Like Jayden. I was really happy with how it turned out and I love my character Jayden DeMario. He is a sweet kid!
~Do you plan your stories and, if so, to what extent?
SL: I have tried chapter outlines (with Jayden), writing character arcs which I still do. I can’t do full outlines. They don’t work for me. Really its better when I let the muses take over and I add details as I go along. I have set scenes in my head and write those down.
~ Take one of your stories and tell us what you would change about it if you would do it over again.
SL: Only one? *laughs* I’ll have the opportunity to do Michael’s Second Chance story over again. I’ll be getting my rights back from the publisher soon. I’d like to make it longer, delve deeper into the characters. When I first started, I didn’t do that enough. Now I know better so I’d like to go back into that one.
~ Where do you get your best ideas?
SL: From everyday life and looking at hot men. *laughs*
~What do you do to relax?
SL: Reading a good book with music in the background!
~Do you listen to music when you're writing?
SL: Yes I do. All kinds and it really depends on the story I’m doing at the time.

Author Sharita Lira: In one word, crazy. Just crazy enough to have 3 different muses running around in her head, driving her to sheer exhaustion with new plot bunnies and complex characters.
