Author Lea Barrymire

 I had the chance to interview author Lea Barrymire about her latest release from SirenBookstrand.

Q. Tell me a little bit about your latest release.
My debut novel, Maggie’s Abduction, came out April 19th from Siren Publishing. It’s a science-fiction/ futuristic erotic romance about Maggie, who… you guessed it, gets abducted. She is taken from Earth and given to Raharan, a feline alien, as a distraction to keep him happy.
Here’s the blurb: Maggie's night couldn't get much worse. She’d been dragged by her skinnier, and cuter, best friend to a bar to meet a blind date. Then, she’s drugged and wakes to find herself on a ship as a sexual submissive to a massive, feline humanoid. After being stripped naked, and terrified, she finds herself tied to a bed that belongs to war prisoner Raharan, the golden-eyed alien that’s been given Maggie as a distraction. She finds that being submissive to him opens her eyes to love and an amazing sex life. When more of his kind attack the ship to free their brethren, Maggie finds herself coveted by another. Will she be destined to act as the slave for another, or will Raharan find and save her in time?

Q. How did you decide to write paranormal and futuristic erotic romance?

I write what I love to read. I am a closet sci-fi geek! I loved reading sci-fi and fantasy books when I was a kid, and as I grew my reading tastes changed, but it didn't affect the genres I like to read. There is just something about a gorgeous alpha male that can turn into an animal, or can control minds.

Q. What's on the calendar for upcoming books?
May 22nd my first shifter/vamp book releases. Willie Krenshaw is a woman pissed a the world. She's strong, a shifter and part vampire. She's lived a lonely life but stumbles, literally, over a male that sets her world spinning. Half in Love is the first book of the series. She was a lot of fun to write. I'm working on the second book of that series now.

I have the first book in a paranormal/ futuristic series coming out on June 19th. The series features super soldiers that were engineered in a lab through genetic manipulation. They are designed with altered genes that give them heightened senses and skills. The doctors had also figured out how to unlock psychic abilities. One of the genes the doctors inadvertently unlock is a primal, animalistic gene that is triggered when a perfect match, or mate, is detected. Cain is the first of these men to exhibit the symptoms of this gene.

I have a BDSM Quickie story being published by Ellora’s Cave in the near future. Oh, and I tried my hand at their EC for Men series with a sexy prostitute named Destiny. Her book, Another Taste of Destiny, will be coming soon as well.

Q. What type of environment is the best for writing in? What do you like to have around while you write?

I have to have noise. I think it keeps the gremlins in my brain busy so the characters can do their thing. I listen to lots of music while writing, but the type of music is completely dependent on the mood of the scene. I love Korn, Puddle of Mudd, Breaking Benjamins, and many other bands. If I'm editing or working on something delicate I just pull out some classical zen music.

I also like to have peanut M&M's around, but they are necessary! :)

Q. How can readers find you in the cyber world?

Author bio:
Lea lives in Western New York with her hubby, three children, and miscellaneous critters. Before the rugrats, she lived a life of adventure, following her husband all over Europe with the US military. She’s slept in a car outside Paris, drove six hours just to see tulips in the Netherlands, and knocked ash from her shoes at Pompey. Now she spends her time in life’s adventures at soccer games, PTA meetings and school plays.
Lea has loved reading from a very young age, spending many sleepless nights devouring books. Science fiction and paranormal were her favorite genres to read as a teenager, and that love bled into her adult life. She started writing during a bout of insomnia, to fill time, and found it filled a creative void. Now she communes regularly with the characters in her head and tries not to laugh out loud when they say something funny.
When Lea isn’t reading, writing or corralling kids, she enjoys watching movies and sciency shows, or just kicking back and listening to some music.


  1. Thanks for having me on your blog! Happy release day to you in 8 days! :)
