Fix your drink, grab a seat and get comfy cuz we are about to rock the house with Ms. Fiona!
Ms. Fiona, I want to thank you for coming to play at my Hussy Lair. Make yourself at home! =)
FJ: Thank you Brain (Oh sorry, I mean Cecile.. You may want to explain that one to the readers lol!) Pleasure to be here at the Hussy Lair!
Oh gosh.... LMBO!!!! Okay 'splaining time. In the process of doing this pimping for Ms. Fiona, we have been talking - alot! And we have come to find out that we are just alike, yes... as if there could be another me out there!!! Well..... in our talking we have figured out that we are the inevitable awesome due of "Pinky and The Brian." I am not sure if you remember the cartoon show, "Pinky and The Brain,".... this is us::::
Pinky: "Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?"
The Brain: "The same thing we do every night, Pinky—try to take over the world!"

And yes... one day Fiona and I will take over the world!!!!!! OKay..... Now that we cleared that air! Yes, we really are geeks, lmbo!!!
Ladies, let me give you a little of what I found online about Ms. Jadye from her web site:
And no... I did not take him from her place... This is actually another new member to the tribe. His name is Luke.
Okay, back to Fiona!
Fiona Jayde is a space pilot, a ninth degree black belt in three styles of martial arts, a computer hacker, a mountain climber, a jazz singer, a weight lifter, a superspy with a talent for languages, and an evil genius.
All in her own head.
In life, she is an author of kickass, action packed, steamy romances, possesses a brown belt in Tae Kwon Do and blue belt in Aikido, a web developer, scared to death of heights, loves jazz piano, can bench-press about 20 pounds — with effort, speaks English and Russian fluently, and when not plotting murder and mayhem enjoys steamy romance novels, sexy spy thrillers, murky mysteries and movies where things frequently blow up.
Well... hats off to you Ms. Fiona!! You gotta love a woman with a sense of adventure and a sense of humor!
FJ: LOL thanks!
With that being said Ms. Fiona.... why don't you tell us something we can't google about you, heee haaa (yea I am evil).
FJ: Oh man.. Lets see... I have a punching bag in my patio - I even wrote an ode to it once. I love that thing! It takes about 2 minutes to go from steaming mad to exhausted and serene. Gotta love that....
I'm also a cover artist - check out Noble Romance to see some of my work!
What makes you write, what inspires you to keep going?
FJ: I can't get scenes out of my head! Sometimes I have characters or scenes for DAYS - I may not know how they fit into what I'm currently writing, but they won't shut up until I pour them out onto paper (or onto the keyboard).
Out of all your work, which one has been the funnest to write? Why?
The most endearing to write? Why?
And yes, the dreaded question... which on was/is your favorite to write?
FJ: This is like picking out your favorite kid. (Or a favorite cat in my case). I'm not sure how to answer that. My favorite work is the one I just finished the second draft on, and now all it needs is to smooth out the loose ends. (My hardest work to write is that same book, but before the second draft... This is where I tend to question my sanity!)
Do you have the stories floating around in your head, voices that talk to you... demanding your attention? If so, what do you do... stop what you are doing to write it down...??
FJ: Oh yeah, I have voices and scenes and everything in between. I see story possibilities in everything - I'm always on alert for input. I have an email account which is a repository for story ideas - this is where I send news articles, titles, snippets, ideas to myself for harvesting later. At least until they invent the memory-extension-Google-chip I can plant in my neck:)
Besides writing... what do you do to unwind from a typical stressful day?
FJ: As I mentioned, my punching bag is my best friend when I'm stressed. I also play piano (I love to bust out with Moonlight Sonata on a rainy night), play with my cats, or play Wii with hubby.
We all have those days where nothing goes right, everything goes to crap in hand basket from the minute we wake up... what is a girl to do?
FJ: Dood, I'm not the only one who has those? LOL. Usually Chocolate is the answer. Everything seems better with a mouthful of chocolate.
What is your favorite genre to read?
FJ: I love to read Romance - anything that is action packed with a tough heroine and a sexy hero. I used to love historicals a la Johanna Lindsey, but recently I tend to stick to contemporary or futuristic suspense, action adventure, and sci-fi.
What is your favorite genre to write?
FJ: LOL pretty much the same as those I read!
Do you have a story that you have wanted to pen down... but have not been able too yet?
FJ: Actually I do! I can't tell you much about it (yet) but I've had a story in my mind for sometime involving a martial arts teacher and one of his female kickass student. I'm just not quite sure what to do with them yet :)
Now for the smut questions.....
Oh I am trying, believe me.... Oh and ladies... Meet Jack... He is the newest member to the Tribe.... He will serving you all!
What does it take to make an "AHA awesome" sex scene?
FJ: I love romances with sexual tension - so for me an AHA awesome sex scene is full of "we shouldn't be doing this but man it feels so good" moments. Its all about the angst lol:)
What makes it work for you?
What makes it not work for you?
FJ: I think the above questions can be answered together: I love gritty realistic language. Not necessarily curse words, but I don't like too many "swelling waves of desire" either. I think that is why I enjoy contemporary novels so much.
What makes your inner hussy purr when reading or writing the climax?
FJ: A really good wind of sexual tension, coiling to the boiling point. When my toes are curling, I know I'm hitting just the right notes when writing!
What does hubby think of your scenes?
FJ: Funny story on that:) The first complete book I ever wrote was GrimJustin: DeBriefed. I was so proud of myself for finishing something and getting it published! Of course I sent it to hubby to read - at the time we were living in two different cities, and he had roommates. It took him a very long time to actually read it, and when he finally did, the only thing I got was: "You got the reaction you were looking for". LOL
Have you blushed at reading (yours or anyone else's work) smutty scenes - EVER?
If so... care to share..... **batting eyelashes**
FJ: I don't think so! But I'm pretty vanilla in terms of what write (and read) compared to some truly erotic things out there! I have been known to whip out my notebook and feverishly jot down words and passages. Can never have too many words you know!
Hummmm... will have to ponder my Pinky mind to turn Fiona over to the dark (chocolate) side of the some smut lovin.... hee heeeee **rubs hands together**
Okay, now that I have asked this question...
FJ: I can ask what author can get your panties in a bunch... What author rocks your world and why?
FJ: Oh man - I can go on and on here!! JR Ward and JD Robb, Linda Howard, Anne Stuart, Beth Kery, Lacey Savage, Shiloh Walker, classic Johanna Lindsey, Catherine Coulter...
What does their style of writing say to you?
FJ: Umm.. Mostly it says that they rock? Seriously though, their styles are so different, and yet the have this whole "page turning story" thing down pat!
How does their storytelling different from any other author you read?
FJ: Ability to keep my interest. I'm a very picky reader and I get bored fairly quickly. My favorite authors can keep me up through the night!
And for my favorite... have you ever had a fangirl moment!?!
FJ: You mean aside from when I squealed all over you about JR Ward's next release? LOL. Not yet. But that may change come May:)
Okay... Quickie Time... Don't be scared... I promise to be nice... **Evil smile**
Tea or Coffee: Tea! Coffee will keep me on the ceiling!
Milk or Dark Chocolate: DOOD - Dark Chocolate. Not even a question!
Sunrise or Sunset: Sunset. Sunrise is for sleeping.
Cook or Clean: Clean! I would burn water given half a chance.
Email or Text: Email. Text messages are too quick and the little buttons get annoying.
Hot or Sexy: Sexy. Definitely sexy.
Kisses or Hugs: Hugs. I can have the worst day ever, and all it takes is a hug from my husband to make me feel better.
Stilettos or Flats: Hmm... I should wear stilettos, but I'm afraid of falling over. Flats, I suppose. I make up for the lack of height with personality.
Kinky or Fetishes: Umm... what's the difference?
I am not sure... I just love saying those words!!! Haaa haaaa!
For more Q & A - provided by Ms. Beth Kery actually... please go --->> here.
FJ: Thank you so much for having me!!!
And on her last day...
She has a surprise for us... For being so good of course!!!!!

Except she carries an explosive. And Stark may have to give the order to destroy them all.
