With us today is Romance Author, Eva Lefoy.
Thanks for having me here!
Describe a typical day in the life of Eva Lefoy.
Oh it’s much less exciting than you might think. M-F I word 8-5 so I get up and head to the office. I am a commercial insurance account manager and some days that’s boring, other days, it’s exciting in the all the wrong ways. I write at home after dinner. Sometimes it’s hard to make myself go to bed on time!
Tell us a bit about yourself. Where do you live, do you have a significant other, any young ones running around?
I’m a lifelong resident of Washington state although if I could I’d probably move to Europe. Norway maybe, Greece, France, to name a few places. In the meantime I hang out with my hubby gardener and one bossy cat.
What is your favorite junk food?
Chocolate. Chips. Wait, that’s two.
What do you like to do for fun and relax?
Hike. I know, that sounds like work and not relaxing but believe me, when I get to the top of wherever I’m going and I look at the view, it’s very relaxing.
Do you get road rage? What pisses you off the most about other drivers?
I try to avoid road rage. I do live in a very small town at the moment so it’s not so bad. I lived in Seattle for 15 years and the traffic only got worse. It became rather annoying! And dangerous, too, IMO.
Who is your celebrity crush?
Who isn’t? Johnny Depp, Peter Dinklage, Hugh Jackman, Robert Downey Jr. are all yum!
What three words would your family use to describe you?
Bratty. Pushy. Bossy. But I’m not, really! It’s just my family are a bunch of whiners!
What is your favorite scent?
Perfume-wise I LOVE Opium and Ysatis and Curve. And Chanel /Coco. Natural wise I’m heavy into Patchouli. You either love it or you hate it and I could bathe in it every hour and never get tired of it!
What was the worst summer job you had in your teens?
Probably babysitting. I didn’t have that many summer jobs so that was nice.
If you had the chance to meet one author – past or present – who would it be? Why?
As far as current authors I would say Sherrilyn Kenyon so I can pick her brain and learn her secrets. Especially since I’m going to write a UF version of The Snow Queen.
Do you have a bucket list? If so, how many items are on it? Have you been able to cross many items off the list?
No. And no. But stay tuned. I might come up with one yet!
Who/What are you currently reading?
I’m reading a little werewolf ditty for research purposes. It’s called Taming Heather by Lorie O’Clare and it’s book I in the Cariboo Lunewulf series.
Writing can be a crazy business. How do you stay positive within the craziness?
Hiking, wine and chocolate. All three in equal measure!
Did you always want to be an author?
I don’t know. I’ve always written but writing for fun and being an author are two different animals. One is far easier than the other.
No matter the story, where do you always draw inspiration from when you begin each story?
It’s always easy for me to come up with a line. Any line. And bam! You’re off and running. Pick a scene and start it right before the action. I’m not big on backstory. If the scene is in the woods then the character is going to be near the woods to start with and I’m not going to put in three pages worth of description!
What is your one pet peeve about the writing business?
It seems like there’s a bit of high school about it sometimes. People at publishing houses can be cliquey. But the authors themselves are usually great to get along with in social media.
What do you find most challenging about writing?
Always learning, always trying to improve and wrap your head around something new.
If you knew then what you know now (about yourself, life, etc) what main piece of advice would you give yourself at age 21?
Ignore men! Seriously. I thought life was all about romantic love at that age. It’s really not. It’s actually all about hiking!
I recently participated in the Sci Spanks blog hop. If you like science fiction or science fiction romance, or if you happen to like spanking stories, take a look at the two themes combined. Every author provided a 2,000 word free short story on their blog. We had such fun doing this!
The hop is over now, but the stories are still great reads.
Here’s a sneak peek at mine:
He raised a bushy dark brown eyebrow the same color as his braided hair. “I promise I will decide your fate fairly.”
I pursed my lips in what I hoped was a pretty pout. “Can’t you maybe punish me for being bad and then let me go?”
Oo’ir’s eyes gleamed at the word punish. I’d heard theirs was a discipline-focused sexuality, but the reports hadn’t been explicit about their tastes. I was forging into unknown territory, both exhilarated and terrified at the possibilities.
“You wish to be punished, Earthling?”
“Yes,” I breathed. “Punish me, Oo’ir. I’ve been a very bad girl.”
His hands grabbed me and pulled me to his chest. The pads of his fingers were rough, like sandpaper. The feel of his chest like warm steel. I bit my lip as my pussy clenched in anticipation.
“Bad,” he repeated.
“Yes. Very bad girl.” Oh, how bad I’d truly been. Oo’ir had no idea.
He picked me up as though I weighed nothing, and strode toward the throne. When he reached it, he set me down on my feet and gave me an appraising look. He fingered the placket of my coat, his gaze on my breasts. “You are fragile. Weak. You will not take much punishment.”
I shook my head in disagreement. The gesture meant the same thing in our languages. “I can take it. Really. Give me what I deserve, Oo’ir.”
He snorted a hot breath out his nose before pulling my coat down and ripping open my blouse. Since I’d worn no bra – who needs one in space with light gravity anyway? – my breasts were fully exposed. He sucked in a breath and grasped both nipples, pinching them hard.
The pain-pleasure circuit in my brain kicked in. I lived for this. To experience exactly this. In every way and with every race I possibly could before I died. I’d made it my life’s study. Showing Oo’ir my submission without betraying my greediness for more would be my difficulty. Wanting to encourage him, I laid my head back and gave the lightest of moans.
“Sturdy enough,” Oo’ir said approvingly. “We will proceed.”
Yes, there is some spanking involved here shortly. But who gets spanked is the question. Who wants it more, her or him? Find out when the longer anthology version of the story is released.

I also have a very sexy android-human romance out from Decadent Publishing called Download My Love.
Security Core agent Everett is assigned a special case—protect the daughter of Simon Gold, the father of modern mechanoid life. To ensure her survival, Everett’s given a special EMO upgrade, and can experience love for the first time. He’s soon head over heels and the super-charged sexual attraction threatens to fry his circuits while he fights to stay one step ahead of the bad guys.
Samantha Gold detests her father’s work. She’s an off-the-grid back-to-lander who wants to keep life simple with her cows and her crops. When her father dies and inadvertently transfers a secret code to a hidden receptor in her brain, it’s only android Agent Everett who can protect her. Can she ever forgive her father for creating Everett—a man so perfect for her that he even loves her cows?
Who doesn’t love androids and cows?
