Interview with Cami Stark

Can you tell readers a little bit about yourself and what inspired to write in
this particular genre?

I love doing anything in the North woods! My family and I have a small
place in northern Wisconsin; where I spend the majority of my free time.
It’s also where I do the majority of my writing. I love getting lost in a great
story, whether it is a book or movie, depends on who is in the room.
I chose erotica for three reasons. First, I love to read that genre. Second, I
choose erotica because of the readers, they are such passionate, loyal
people. Third, I love creating the characters and seeing how much trouble
I can get them into!

What inspired you to write this book?

My daughter inspired me to write. She is a brilliant writer herself and I
want to be a role model for her. I would never want her to waste her own

Please tell us about your latest release.

“All She Craved” is a six part novella series, “The Agreement” is the second
book in this series and released January 29, 2013. In this episode we see
the main characters, Trisha and Michael, really start to get to know each
other while exploring there sexual relationship. We also take a beautiful
trip to the Hawaiian Islands where Trisha discovers this adventure may
have her in real danger.

Do you have a special formula for creating characters' names? Do you try to
match a name with a certain meaning to attributes of the character or do
you search for names popular in certain time periods or regions?

The character names in the “All She Craved” series were chosen because I
wanted to convey to my audience that the this is an all American couple
that goes on an adventure together. Also, I spent about ten years in
medical sales before becoming a full-time writer. Trisha and Michael are
both in the medical industry. So, I wrote what I saw.

I use BabyNames.com. The site allows you to search names by time period,
country, meaning...etc. It’s a great site!

Was one of your characters more challenging to write than another?

The most challenging character to write would be Michael. I am working
on the third episode now and it’s written in Michael’s voice. This is difficult
for me because I'm not a man but, I know what I like in one!

Is there a character that you enjoyed writing more than any of the others?

The character I most enjoyed to write thus far has been Trisha. Trisha has
so much of me in her attitude and personality. I think that if I were ever in
her position I would go for it!

Do you have a formula for developing characters? Like do you create a
character sketch or list of attributes before you start writing or do you just
let the character develop as you write?

I do have a formula. It is a little silly but, I create a character list. This list
states who the character is related to (unless they are the lead), there
physical attributes (if applicable), and there role in the story. I then use
google image search and find a picture I can envision. It really makes the
characters come to life.

What is your favorite scene from the book? Could you share a little bit of it,
without spoilers of course?

Definitely the airplane sex with the Delashe! I also like the softer scene’s
between the couple when they discuss the past. Also, the end is a real cliff

What is the most interesting thing you have physically done for book
related research purposes?

I would say the most interesting thing I have physically done for book
related research was travel. The “All She Craved” series takes place in the
beautiful Hawaiian Islands. The islands are probably my favorite place in
the world. Everything you read on the pages are places I have been.

With the book being part of a series, are there any character or story arcs,
that readers jumping in somewhere other than the first book, need to be
aware of? Can these books be read as stand alones?

The books should be read in order. A reader could read the second without
the first; however, they maybe a little lost at first.

Do you write in different genres?

I do actually. I am currently working on three projects (I always tell my
fans that I have undiagnosed ADD so, I have to do multiple things at once)
one is the next installment of “All She Craved.” Second, is a contemporary
romance novel that doesn’t have a name yet. Third, is a non-fiction novel
about my life.

Do you find it difficult to write in multiple genres?

It’s challenging and exciting. The hardest part of writing in multiple
genres is promotion. You have to load up on your contacts!

What was the last amazing book you read?

“Naked” by Raine Miller. What a great book!

Where is your favorite place to read? Do you have a cozy corner or special
reading spot?

My favorite place to read is the treadmill! A good read can keep me
moving for some time and I appreciate that.

Where can readers find you on the web?

Trisha had never met a man like Michael before, a demanding sexy billionaire with an insatiable passion. Faced with the decision of having to enter into an exclusive agreement, Trisha is pondering with the idea of trusting him completely and exploring her darkest desires.

About the Author:

My name is Cami Stark. I’m a wife and mother with a very creative imagination. I have always enjoyed storytelling and character development. Creative writing became a career when I decided I had too many stories in my head to ignore. I haven’t quit my “day job” just yet; but, I hope to soon. My dream job is to be to a writer full-time. When I’m not writing, I enjoy spending time in the North Woods, swimming, boating and hanging out with friends. This new venture is bound to be a wild ride and I’m honored that you will be there with me. I feel that romance readers and writers are very passionate and I cannot wait to meet you all!
