Interview With Izzy Szyn

By on May 4, 2015

I sat down (virtually) with Izzy Szyn for a short interview. Izzy Szyn’s most recent release is The Anniversary Present: The Gift of Love, a Contemporary menage.

Cynthia Sax: What do you love about writing erotic romance?

Izzy Szyn: I have always been a fan of Erotic Romance, especially ménages. Most people that know me are not surprised when they find out what I have written so far. I think that as long as love involves consenting adults it shouldn’t matter who your life partner or partners are.

Cynthia Sax: What one piece of advice would you give new writers?

Izzy Szyn: Never say never. As long as I have been stalking romance writers the one question I was always asked is when was I going to write? I had been in denial for a long time. For as long as I can remember I had stuff running in my head. But I sort of pushed them into the backburner. Mostly because I didn’t think anyone would take me seriously.

I have moderated chats for a long time. One night after a chat, my friend Iris Pross dared me to write. She said she bet that I could write better than some of the ideas being thrown around in the chatroom and that is how Izzy was born.

Cynthia Sax: Where did you get the idea for The Anniversary Present?

Izzy Szyn: I always get my ideas at about 2 sometimes 3am in the morning. Makes it really inconvenient when I am trying to sleep and have to be at work in the morning.

But literally the characters woke me up with their story. At my job I have Fridays and Saturdays off, plus half of Thursday. I took that whole Thursday off and wrote their story. I literally wrote it in two days. Granted it was a short, but it was the most I had written in a two day period so far.

Cynthia Sax: Is The Anniversary Present part of a series and will you be writing more stories in this series?

Izzy Szyn:
It wasn’t supposed to be a series. It was supposed to be a one-time thing. But there is a certain character that people have taken a strong dislike to and want that person to get their comeuppance. I have received PM messages on Facebook telling me that the person needed to be smacked. So maybe one or two more?

Thank you, Izzy Szyn, for joining us today!
