Inside the Author with 20 Questions: Nikki Sloane



1. What is your favorite word?
Honestly? It’s probably fuck. It’s so versatile!

2. What is your least favorite word?
Cream, especially when it’s used as a verb. <shudders>

3. What turns you on?
Lots of things: My husband. Tumblr. Vodka. The moment in a story when the hero and heroine finally give in to their desire, especially if it’s been a simmering build up to that moment.

4. What turns you off?
See above statement about cream. <shudders again> Bad oral hygiene. When the hero’s name is misspelled right in the middle of a hot sex scene. (Really, typos and bad grammar in general.)

5. What sound or noise do you love?
My kids giggling.

6. What sound or noise do you hate?
My dog barking at the TV. He’s a total racist, no joke. A black person or that Nasonex bee comes on and he goes ballistic. We have to put him in his kennel if we want to watch reruns of Key & Peele.

7. What is your favorite curse word?
Fuck. It’s the best.

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
I’d love to produce a movie. Pick the script, the director, the cast, and have control over the marketing of the final product. It’s kind of like being a book publisher.

9. What profession would you not like to do?
Daycare. I am not equipped to watch groups of other people’s children. I don’t know how the women at my son’s daycare do it, God bless them.

10. What are you reading right now?
I have a bunch of books I’m supposed to be reading for the Romance Writers of America RITA awards, but Stylo Fantome just sent me an ARC of “The Bad Ones” so guess what I’m reading.

11. What book(s) do you urge readers to read?
Stylo’s “Degradation.” (really, any of her books)

12. What inspires you?
This might sound strange, but discussing books and reading reviews, even for books I haven’t read yet. Hearing what someone responded to positively makes me think about how I could incorporate that concept into my work. I, um, also spend a lot of time on tumblr.  That often inspires specific scenes in my work.

13. What is your favorite indulgence?
Jelly beans. I love them!

14. What is your favorite movie?
The Fifth Element. The movie has all the things I love: comedy, action, love story, and Bruce Willis.

15. What is your favorite piece of clothing?
I have a sapphire blue cocktail dress I wear to weddings and I love the way I feel in it.

16. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Cookie Dough.

17. What is something you like to collect?
I’m not much of a collector. I’m the opposite of a hoarder, mostly because I moved around a lot growing up and it was such a pain packing and unpacking memorabilia. My husband calls me heartless when I throw out stuff the kids made, but I have a hard time breaking that habit.

18. What item must you have with you at all times?
My phone. And maybe a Diet Coke.

19. What city could you get lost in for hours to explore?
Venice! I went on my honeymoon and it was amazing.

20. What is one thing about you that would surprise us?
I write FFM threesomes and I’ve never so much as kissed another woman.

After Dark Question: Who is your favorite Star Wars character?
It was Han until the new movie. Rey kicks ass!
