This week’s Triple Play Q&A featured author is a multi-faceted force of nature! Teacher, stalker, philosopher, and of course, über talented writer! (By the way, I should totally get some extra credit for nailing that umlaut on “über”!) But I digress… Please allow me to introduce Isabella Laase!
Introducing myself is a tough thing. I’ve been an erotica reader for years but in the summer of 2015, I decided to make the plunge and become a writer and on that day, Isabella Laase was born.
A lot of people have debated pen names in this genre, but for me, my public sector job, my large my conservative family, and even my age has kept my two worlds separate.
I love being Isabella. Having the freedom to discuss socially forbidden topics with like-minded people has been amazing. My first novel was Training Tia but it took two years to publish it. I was lost for weeks in a fantasy world of sex and submission.
Creating Tamed by the Virginian moved much faster and it combined my history loving side with dominant males and sassy females just trying to survive. By this point, I was hooked.
I moved onto the Cloudcroft series with the idea of introducing the world of kinky sex to mainstream America and it has been a mind opening, research based joy along with some of my favorite characters to date.
Introducing yourself may be tough, but you did an outstanding job, Isabella! And now it’s time for your Triple Play Q&A!
What do you do when you’re not writing?
Social justice advocate…educating America’s future…reading smutty novels….and not necessarily in that order. I have a wonderful family and my hubby is my best friend of over thirty years. We travel a great deal and I’ve been very, very lucky in this life.
Do you have any hidden talents? If so, what are they? If not, is there something you wish you could do?
I am a hell of a stalker. After years of doing historical and genealogical research, I could probably track down just about anybody on the Internet. I’ve used this … uh…perfectly legal talent to find distant cousins who have shared new and exciting history with me. I also love to write non-fiction articles on real people and have a little notoriety under a different name.
I wish…though that I could write a professional webpage on my own. I also wish I did better with Twitter.
What are a few simple things that give you the most pleasure in life?
I love being alone. I know it doesn’t fit with what I’ve said above about the family and all, but I really…really like to sit in an empty house and just listen to the nothing. I love to think, and dream and get lost in my imagination. I love to go the grocery store or the mall and wander around without looking to buy anything in particular. I love to pick junk food places to eat my lunch while playing canasta on my cell phone. I love to watch television without having to justify my choices…of Disney cartoons or vampire movies or comic book heroes. I totally could be a hermit in my next life….but I still get a little shudder of excitement when hubby comes home at the end of the day.
Thank you, Isabella, for joining me on today’s Triple Play Q&A! It’s been a pleasure learning more about you and your approach to writing. And, if any of you need some stalking done, it sounds like Ms. Laase may be willing exchange some of her know-how for some Twitter tips! 😉
