Author spotlight: Berengaria Brown

14 February 2011

Berengaria Brown is a multi-published author of erotic romance: contemporary, paranormal (ghosts, vampires and werewolves) and Regency-set historical. She loves to read all different kinds of romance so that is what she writes: one man/one woman; two women; two men; two men/one woman; three men … Whatever the characters need for their very hot happily-ever-after, Berengaria makes sure they get it. Berengaria’s 23rd book released on 19 January 2011 and she has six more books contracted to be released this year.

Now it’s Berengaria’s turn under the spotlight …

Have you attended one of ARRA’s events before?

No, I couldn’t make it to ARRC09.

What are you most looking forward to at ARRC2011?

Berengaria travels a lot for her day job and is looking forward to being in Sydney in March for ARRC2011. Since she is predominantly published electronically, she is also thrilled to be signing her first two print books: Forever Yours, a collection of her three linked paranormal stories from Siren BookStrand, and Sizzling Vacations, a collection of three of her contemporary novellas from Ellora’s Cave.

What do you have coming up next?

By the time ARRC takes place, the Sex Odyssey series, which Berengaria has written jointly with awesome Australian erotic romance author, Amarinda Jones, will all be released at Evernight Publishing. Amarinda and Berengaria have each written three books in the series, one from each of them releasing in January, February and March. All the books are set in Resort City, and the characters are linked, but each story stands alone. Each focuses on the journey of the heroine. Berengaria’s three books are: Three for the Road, Feels so Good, and Strung Tight.

Which of your books (or characters) is your favourite?

They say you never forget your first! There’s something very special about that first published book. Mine was Intensity, a contemporary with paranormal elements set in the Smith Tower building, and the first book in the series that became Forever Yours. I started writing what I thought was Keziah’s story, the story of a woman who lost her job because she stood up for a friend. She was clearly interested in Amos and Wesley, although showed a very independent streak, and was not going to be pushed around or let them take over her life just because she was unemployed and had to move out of her apartment.

The men made it very obvious they wanted her to move in with them into the Smith Tower block, and that made logical sense, but for some reason Keziah resisted this plan for quite a while.

Finally she agreed to move into their apartment and I thought things would progress from there. Amos and Wesley planned to keep her in their bed until she understood how much they loved her and wanted her to stay with them forever.

But no. Then the ghost turned up and just took over the story! Fortunately he was quite clear about what he wanted. He wanted his story told, not just Keziah’s.

And before I recovered from that surprise there was a company take-over attempt. All I could do was keep typing until the characters told me what I needed to know.

So really, I was hardly surprised when another ghost knocked on my mind during the writing of the second book in that series, Complexity, although I spilled coffee all over my keyboard when a vampire turned up as I started the third book, Eternity!

If you haven’t tried one of Berengaria’s books, you have a lot to catch up on:
