Hot Spot: Bridget Midway


Erotiqué Hot Spot
Bridget Midway

Erotiqué: What kind of a child were you? Shy? Outgoing? Flamboyant?

Bridget: I was and still am very shy, believe it or not. I’m not very outgoing in front of strangers. It takes a lot to draw me out. But with my friends, I’m a total goofball.

Erotiqué: How did you find your way to writing erotic fiction?

Bridget: An author friend of mine, Laura Bacchi, was in my local writing group and after winning a writing contest with an erotica publisher, she encouraged me to submit work. So I punched up the sensuality in a work that had been recently rejected by a magazine and it got accepted. From that point, I’ve been published by more than 10 different publishers. What can I say? Sex sells!

Erotiqué: What is your greatest source of inspiration for writing your stories?

Bridget: Dreams, newspaper articles, Internet stories, friends, family, TV shows, people on the street. I’m always keeping my eyes and ears open and I grab inspiration from everywhere.

Erotiqué: Do you ever find yourself in need of mood enhancements? What kind do you use?

Bridget: Oh yeah. I’ll admit it. If I’m not feeling that special umph to write a hot scene, I’ll break out a porn DVD. Sometimes I’ll watch it just for new positions.

Erotiqué: What can readers expect from any of your stories?

Bridget: I’m hoping that my readers know to expect the unexpected. I know. A complete oxymoron. Since I write multicultural romance, my readers know that I write a romance with an interracial couple where race is not an issue. It would be great if interracial romances became the norm instead of its own special subgenre. But while it is, I’ll keep writing them so long as fans keep reading them.

As a former shy one myself I totally can see you as being shy. Once we shy ones get loose and unleash all of that tamped down passion, we and it explodes. Love your work and cant wait for Corporate Desires to be in print!

This was great! And it was kind of nice really getting to know Bridget. I'm a fan of her work.

I still feel I'm that shy person and I'm a writer too. I always tell myself I'm bad on paper so I can be good in life. LOL.

Blessings on all your literary endeavors with prayer for more to come!

Bridget - good job on the interview - it's always fun to see/read where an author gets their inspiration. But it's always delightful to learn more about the person too. Thanks for being reachable.

Hi, y'all (sorry, that's my Virginia side coming out). Yep, extremely shy in person. I love hanging out with outgoing people because they draw a attention, which in turns means they draw a crowd, which for an author like me who likes to observe people and their habits, that's a good thing. *LOL*

Thanks for being fans of my work. By the way, Joy, CORPORATE DESIRES, is available in print.
