Well, I think it’s time I do an introductory post.
I write under Annabel Allan, but my name is actually Stephanie. I obviously used my real name for the main character in the Smoke Chaser series. Why? I think “Stephanie” is a pretty name and I wanted to use it. What better way when you’re working under a pen name?
The entire Smoke Chaser series is a work of fiction. I used inspiration from some real life things, but there is no Quinlan in my life (I wish!). I got the idea when I was 25 and thinking what if? What if I wrote down my fantasies and turned it into a story? And then the Smoke Chaser series was born!
Well, actually, as I have said in a previous blog, it was titled “Licking the Flames” and wasn’t intended to be a series. It was going to be one book because I wasn’t sure how good it really was. Then I hooked up with Accent Press and we made the necessary changes, including making it a series (my first three book deal!) and changing the title and giving it a series name.
What’s next for Annabel Allan? Well, I don’t like to limit her. As long as it’s spicy, erotic, it’s her deal, not mine. She’s dabbled in BDSM (Edgeplay, which will hopefully find a home soon), and now into the paranormal–faeries, actually! Not sure if one would consider that paranormal. Maybe fantasy? What do you think?
If you have any questions for me, I can always reply via a blog post! Maybe pick a question and answer it each week, as I plan on doing blog posts again each week. Probably on Wednesdays, as I have picked today to start up again.
Let me know in the comments what you think!
Xoxo Annabel Lee.
