Ms. Rambler sprints into the pub, her cheeks flushed and her arms loaded
with notepads. She sees CJ sitting at one of the tables playing with a
little paper umbrella.

off two drinks, winks at them and walks away. “Is his
name really Hook?”
Rambler grins, pulling her gaze away from the retreating
bartender. “Probably not, but I’m told there’s some
romantic story behind the name. He hasn’t told me the
tale though. Are you ready for your interview?”
takes another sip of her drink and grins. “Fire away.”
1- If you have an
alias or pen name, what is it?
I have been
called many things. (giggle) but I go by CJ England
for my romantic writings.
2- Tell us about
Here is my
bio. You can use what you want from it. LOL
I call myself a gypsy, due
to my curiosity and ‘itchy feet’, I’ve spent time in
fourteen countries, and have visited forty two
states in our own.
Married for 20 years to the
same wonderful man, I give my husband all the credit
for her writing. "Not only is he a great inspiration
for erotic romance, he gives me the ability to
concentrate on my writing just by supporting my
Right now, I live in
Orlando Florida. The plan for the future is to move
to different localities so I can embrace the flavor
of each city and then write about it. On the list so
far are... Seattle, San Francisco, New Orleans, Key
West, and coastal Maine. Lucky for me, Jonathon has
wanderlust too! In fact his only complaint about my
chosen career, are the eighteen boxes of books I
insist that he has to pack around on all of our
travels. He is totally for the e-book idea!!!
In my life, I consider
myself a "Jill of all Trades". I’ve modeled,
competed in rodeo as a barrel racer and trick rider,
taught preschool, performed as an actress and
singer, served cocktails at Disneyworld, specialized
in production work, and got carried away by

I am a natural empath who
uses my gift to try and make sense of my everyday
world, and keep track of four ferrets, a turtle and
a puppy, as well as my family who is as ‘unique’ and
‘different’ as I am. It is a never ending, and
always interesting way to spend my days, and I

I am often asked where I
get my ideas for all the stories I write. The truth
is... most of the time they are already in my head,
and it's just a matter of figuring out how I can
coax them on to paper.
Sometimes they cooperate,
and it flows. Other times, they turn stubborn and
drag their feet. But eventually, they realize they
were born to be written, and give in.
I dream them out. At night,
I think of a story line, and let my mind go. As I
sleep, my dreams fill in the rest. When I wake up in
the morning, if I'm lucky... I have the next part of
my book, and all I have to do is flesh it out.
Do I believe the stories I
write? Could faeries exist? Can vampires fall in
love? Will aliens visit our planet looking for
mates? I am a huge believer in possibilities, and

imagination is a place where anything is possible,
and if you want it bad enough... you can make it
4- How long have
you been writing?
I have been
writing literally my whole life. I wrote for
magazines like Country and Rodale’s, but then went
into writing books full time about five years ago.
5- Where do you
typically find your inspiration?
Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a huge
imagination. I can be walking down a street and see
something and wham… I am off in a day dream. I am
very fortunate in that I can take an idea to sleep
with me, and most often wake up with a full book the
Sometimes I will dream up a
story while sleeping. The Peacekeeper Journals came
from a dream I had when we lived in Idaho. The
Mylari Chronicles were inspired by a day dream I had
when I was on a dream walk. Hot Tubs and Hot Hunks
was inspired by my husband. Here Comes Peter… came
from an idea I had while I was bike riding.
6- What genre do
you write in?
paranormal and fantasy, but I seem to write
contemporaries well too. If you were to check out my
web page where I list some of my WIPs, you would see
that they pretty much cover most of the genres. I
think most of my dreams are a little out of the
ordinary so I enjoy writing about creatures and
things that most people won’t think of writing
about. I think I surprised everybody with my
romantic comedy, Here Comes Peter… which is about
Peter Cottontail, but according to my readers… it
7- Who has
influenced you in your writing?
favorite romance authors are Nora Roberts, Linda
Howard, Jane Anne Krentz, and Elizabeth Lowell. They
all touch on different aspects of romantic writing,
and reading their work has taught me a lot.
When I read Linda Howard
for the first time, I saw that our styles were
similar. I thought… hey!... Maybe I could do that.
Nine books later… I guess I can.
8- What books do
you have out?
My first book was Hot Tubs
and Hot Hunks - It is available now from Silk's
Vault Publishing, and was released just in time for
Valentine’s Day about a couple who aren’t big on
commitment who fall for each other at first sight.
Here Comes Peter… was my

9- Are you doing
any signing or appearances soon?
I went to the
Romantic Times Convention in Daytona this year. It
was my first time and I enjoyed myself thoroughly. I
had my first experience with autograph signing and I
met a lot of my readers. I also got to know some
great authors and look forward to communicating with
them through the year!
10- Do you have
any advice for aspiring writers?
advice I have is to not be afraid to submit. You
will never have anything accepted if you don’t take
the chance and do it. The second piece of advice I
have is NEVER… NEVER… NEVER let anyone change your
voice. Taking editing help is one thing. We can all
miss stuff and learn things, but don’t let anyone
try to convince you to change your style. You are
you for a reason. Believe in yourself and write what
11- Do you have a
website or a blog?
My website is
I don’t blog because I have
a chat list at…

being a writer, did you ever picture yourself doing
I wanted to be
a wife and a mom. I got my wish. I married my best
friend, and have three wonderful kids. There is no
greater satisfaction than that. Being a writer and
having my readers enjoy my work is the cherry on top
of a wonderful chocolate cake.
14- If you had
time off to do whatever you like, what would you do?
Travel. If I
could I would visit each country in the world. What
dreams I would have then… By the end of 2007, I will
have visited every state in our nation. Then… its on
to the world…
15- Is there a
favorite author you haven't met that you'd like to?
Linda Howard, Jane Anne Krentz, or Elizabeth Lowell.
Any one of these I would love to sit down and have a
drink with and chat.
16- If you have a
book coming out soon or just out would you like to give
us an excerpt?
Here is a blurb and an
excerpt from my September 2nd release… Don’t Spank
the Vamp It is rated… HOT!!!
Dawn is a sculptor who
spends more time with her hands in clay than on a
man. When her friends take her to a special kind of
toy shop, her entire outlook on life changes.
Aidan is a vampire who
loves to walk on the wild side. He has existed for
over a century waiting for his twin flame... his
soulmate to find him.
Dawn is told by the shop's
fortune teller that she will find her destiny if
only she will reach out and take it. Will she be
brave enough to push past the fear and embarrassment
and grab hold of a very special kind of love? One
that could last forever?
An artist looks for
inspiration and when Dawn meets Aidan she is
inspired to give up her safe boring life and take a
walk on the sexy side. Toys included.
Dawn gave the neckties
an experimental tug. She couldn’t move. “I
thought you said we were going to use some of
your toys. I didn’t see these downstairs.”
Surprisingly, the big
man’s cheeks reddened. “Ahhh… It has been a long
time for me. And you are the first woman I have
wanted to play with in a very long time.” He
bent and dropped a kiss on her flat stomach. “I
don’t usually keep handcuffs up here, so I had
She giggled at his
embarrassment. It was endearing. “So you don’t
have any toys, huh?” she teased. “All smoke and
His eyes darkened. “I
didn’t say I don’t have toys. Just not
handcuffs. I always keep a selection up here to
show to buyers. I won’t disappoint you. That… I
can easily promise.”
She wriggled in nervous
excitement. “Then get on with it.”
Aidan laughed. “So
curious. All right, love. We will start with
this.” Leaning over, he took the last tie and
gently placed it over her eyes
Dawn’s mouth went dry.
He was going to blindfold her? Her heart pounded
faster at the thought. She said nothing as he
tied it securely over her eyes.
She shook her head. She
didn’t know if she could speak. She felt him
leave the bed and she could hear a rustling
Then the bed sagged
again. She held her breath, waiting… What would
he do to her? It felt like forever before she
felt a gentle touch on her breasts. It was
fleeting at first, but it made her whole body
tighten in reaction. Then she felt it again, a
longer more erotic touch as it circled her
nipples and traced across her breasts.
She moaned and arched
her body upwards. The touch was so soft, so
erotically sexy, she couldn’t help herself. Over
and over again, it traced around her nipples,
sensitizing her breasts, before finally flicking
across the tips themselves. She cried out, the
feeling shooting through her like a tiny bolt of
He moved then, tickling
down her stomach and then up her sides. He
touched under her arms and then up her neck. It
fleetingly touched her lips and when she
instinctively licked at it, she realized that he
was teasing her with a feather.
She moaned again as the
feather moved back down her body. It made one
more stop at her breasts, before tracing down
past her belly button, to the hair between her
legs. Dawn cried out in surprise when the
feather flicked gently through the curls and
touched her moist lips. When it teased her clit,
heat began to coil in her stomach.
“Aidan…” she moaned.
“I’m here, love.” He
swallowed hard as he watched her wriggle on the
tangled sheets. Touching her this way made him
want to explode and he was very glad they’d
already made love once. Otherwise, he wouldn’t
have been able to handle this.
He carefully drew the
feather through her exposed lips, seeing it
gather the wetness that pooled there. Unable to
help himself, he bent and replaced the feather
with his tongue.
She cried out and
lifted her hips instinctively. He groaned aloud.
She tasted of woman and heat, along with his own
essence. It was the most delicious thing he’d
ever had in his life. He sucked and nibbled
until her movements signaled her climax was
close. Abruptly, he lifted his head.
Dawn groaned. “Aidan…
please.” Her whole body throbbed with the need
He chuckled. “There is
She whimpered. “But…"
“Shhh…” he whispered.
He dropped a kiss on her pouting lips. “Just
She felt him move again
and she stiffened as his hand traced down the
cleft of her rear to the small wrinkled hole of
her backside. Gently, he massaged it, as he
carefully covered it with an oil of some kind.
“Aidan…” she said
“Give it a chance,
love,” he urged. “Remember, you always have your
She nodded and took a
deep breath. He’d promised he wouldn’t hurt her.
She felt something pressing against the rim of
her anus. It was cool and smooth and felt about
the size of a man’s thumb. It went in easily at
first, the lotion he’d massaged into her easing
the way, but then she could feel it spreading
her, as whatever he’d inserted in her rectum,
widened at the bottom.
“This is a butt plug,
sweetheart,” he said hoarsely. “It will add to
your pleasure, this I promise you.”
What he was doing was
exciting to him, she could tell by the sound of
his voice. All at once she relaxed again. She
loved knowing that she could do that to him.
“What does it do?” she
panted out. The feeling of fullness took a
little bit to get used to, but it wasn’t
