A Quickie With.... Eileen Gormely, 1/2 of Evie Hunter + Giveaway

My Writing Space by Eileen Gormely

I love closing the door, and surrounding myself by my peaceful haven of books and paper and pens, so suitable for writing a masterpiece. Er, not so much. It’s a lovely dream, but miles away from where I actually work.
I write in the extension. This is best described as a garden shed attached to the house. One entire wall is lined with tools, nuts, bolts, oil, glue, paint, drill bits and discarded kettles.

Another wall is lined with the washing machine, freezer and laundry baskets.
I work at an old sewing table. The sewing machine has gone to the great recycling yard in the sky, but the table still has the foot pedals and reel holders, and that’s where my laptop lives. It’s tucked in between two book cases, so I can grab dictionaries and reference books without having to get up. 

When I was writing my last Regency, the table was piled twelve deep with memoirs, history books, 19th century dictionaries, and maps of the Peninsula. But for The Pleasures of Winter, it accumulated a lot of kinky paraphernalia that I hope no one will ask me about. 

Under the table is the guinea pig who keeps a wary eye out for the cat, but likes to play with my toes when I’m writing. The hamster is in a cage beside the table, and the cat likes to come in and watch it, hoping for the day when the door is not properly closed and it can get at the hamster. 

The question everyone asks when they see where I work is: Why? The house isn’t that small that I couldn’t find a corner that would be more comfortable to work in. 

But the extension has two big advantages. One, it has huge windows and more natural light than anywhere else in the house. And two, it’s right beside the kitchen, and a regular source of caffeine. What else is important?

Evie Hunter is actually two authors Caroline McCall and Eileen Gormley who met at a creative writing workshop in Dublin in 2010. On discovering that they shared a passion for erotic fiction, they became the best of friends. In early 2012 they got a chance to co-write a series of erotic novellas for an American publisher. When they completed the second one without killing each other, they decided to take on something bigger. Eventually, they emerged into daylight, clutching THE PLEASURES OF WINTER, saying 'Never again' ... until the next time.

When reporter Abbie Marshall needs to escape Honduras, a private jet carrying a Hollywood A-lister is her only way out. She has a ride home with Irish actor Jack Winter - notorious womanizer and all round bad boy. Abbie is shaken to the core by Winter's blazing beauty and provocative mind.

After the plane's nose-dive into the remote rainforest forces them to fight for survival, Abbie catches tantalizing glimpses of the complicated man behind the image. And the more she sees of him, the more he touches some primal part of her that she is determined to suppress. But after a devastating encounter with Winter's shadow side, Abbie's detachment is shattered.

On returning to normal life, Abbie cannot forget what happened, nor ignore the shocking rumours about the star's private life. Her struggle to make sense of her torment leads straight back to Winter, who is just as obsessed by her. But if they are to have a relationship, Abbie knows she must embrace his hidden desires ... and accept her own.

No longer caring about anything but their intoxicating love affair, Abbie is drawn deeper into the dark heart of Winter - and the secret that threatens to destroy everything ...
