How long have you been writing?
All my life although I only started on novels when I was 23. I worked as a journalist for a long time so mostly political features and stories about giant pumpkins and the like.
What was the most challenging part about writing Degrees of Control?
Editing. I couldn’t so much as correct a full stop without wanting to change half the book. Eventually I learned to just give in and let the book be as it is. Not be obsessed with perfection the way I usually am.
What is your favourite part of being an author?
Reading the reviews other people write of my work. I love feeling like I got to help them women have fun, or get turned on for however long they were reading my book.
How long did it take to write this book?
Three months then about the same again in editing.
Do you have any works in progress you’re working on?
I’m currently working on my third novel Something Borrowed which is set at a destination wedding in Bali and my second novel Locked Box is undergoing editing with Liquid Silver Publishing and will be released on March 7 this year.
About the Book
Author: Eve Dangerfield
Charlotte Bell is a typical yoga teacher. She’s friendly, earnest and has some slight masochistic tendencies. After a painful break-up she’s determined to address her long-denied kinks with the kind of man she’s always been too terrified to approch. Her friends have select James Hunter a male model turned corporate suit and after a ‘chance’ encounter at a party, James agrees to school Charlie in the harsher side of sex. He knows she’s too genuine, too kind, too everything for a guy like him but he won’t turn down an opportunity to break in a starry-eyed submissive like her. Yet as Charlie and James embark on a strings-free sexual relationship they discover a connection that runs deeper than either of them could have imagined.
Eve Dangerfield has loved romance novels since she first started swiping her grandmother’s paperbacks at the age of fourteen. Now she writes her own unapologetically sexy tales about complex women and gorgeous-but-slightly-tortured men. Eve currently lives in Melbourne with her lovely sister, extremely chill boyfriend and a rabbit named Billy. When she’s not writing she can usually be found drinking, dancing or making a mess. Often all at once. Degrees of Control is her first novel.
