Interview with Lolita Lopez, Author of Dragon Heat

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Good morning, Lolita!  Describe yourself in five words or less.

[Lolita Lopez] Dirty book writing mama. Smile

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about your Dragon Heat series?

[Lolita Lopez] The Dragon Heat series features a brotherhood of dragons tasked with protecting their species from the Knights who want to destroy them because of an ancient blood feud. These novellas are little slices of super sexy, action packed paranormal romance cake!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the series?

[Lolita Lopez] I had this idea about a young woman who shows up on her brother’s best friend’s doorstep. She’s crying and needs help, but the one person she’s always known she could count on tries to get rid of her. My question was why? Why doesn’t Stig want her to stay? And then it hit me. He’s a dragon shifter about to go into heat, and she’s the one woman he’s wanted but can’t have.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s your favorite scene so far?

[Lolita Lopez] I really enjoyed writing the scene where Cora first sees Stig as a dragon. He expects her to react one way, and she does the complete opposite.

[Manga Maniac Cafe]  What character gave you the most trouble?

[Lolita Lopez] Ivy, the psychic heroine from the upcoming Wicked Dark Dragon, has been the most difficult to write. She’s complicated!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you had a theme song, what would it be?

[Lolita Lopez] Don’t Stop Believing, of course! I never stopped believing I could make a career out of writing. I’ve also never stopped believing in the ability of my daughter to accomplish anything and everything. She’s special needs (autism and heart defects) so every milestone we hit in this house is a huge cause for celebration. Smile

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s one thing you won’t leave home without?

[Lolita Lopez] iPhone!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name three things on your desk right now.

[Lolita Lopez] Sweet tea. Signed Roxie books ready to be mailed to readers. A big ole T-Rex that kiddo left behind…

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you could trade places with anyone for just one day, who would you be?

[Lolita Lopez] Hands-down, it’s my daughter. She struggles with communication, and I would love to be able to know what she’s thinking and feeling.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you were stranded in a secluded cabin during a blizzard, who would you most like to be stranded with?

[Lolita Lopez] In reality? My husband because he’s super warm and very, ahem, handy. In fantasy? I’m going for my personal trifecta of hotness:  Idris Elba, Tom Hardy and Tom Hiddleston. Go big or go home, right?!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What are some books that you enjoyed recently?

[Lolita Lopez] In the last few weeks, I’ve enjoyed At Any Price by Brenna Aubrey, Vengeful in Love by Nadia Lee, Czech Mate by Sloane Taylor and The Alpha and The Outcast by Cheryl Dragon.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?

[Lolita Lopez] I enjoy writing and gardening.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How can readers connect with you?

[Lolita Lopez] Readers can find me online via my website, Facebook and Twitter. You can also sign up for my newsletter if you’d like notification when I have a new release, a giveaway or a sneak peek.

To make matters worse, she’s plagued with breathtakingly naughty dreams starring a shadowed lover who bears a startling resemblance to her host. And what the hell is going on in the basement at night? Stig needs to get Cora out of his house but his inner beast has other ideas. He’s found his mate and she’s not going anywhere.

About the Author:

While browsing bookstore shelves as a teenager, Lo discovered the erotic writings of Anaïs Nin and A.N. Roquelaure. Certain her mother would not approve, Lo smuggled the books home and squirreled them away in the most likely of places:  under her bed. Late at night, she delved into the sensual worlds both writers created.
As a co-ed studying biochemistry and genetics at Texas A&M University, Lo dabbled in creating naughty tales to entertain her friends. Study for a midterm or pen a deliciously dirty story to delight her small band of fans? Not surprisingly, Lo is now on an extended sabbatical from college.
Luckily, Lo stumbled onto the world of erotic romance publishers. She realized there were other readers and writers who loved and craved breathtaking romance with the spiciest of love scenes. She took a chance and submitted her first novella. The rest is history.
Lo lives in Texas with her husband, daughter and big blubbering Great Dane with mommy issues.
