A Mini Interview with Naomi Smart
Welcome, Naomi. It’s lovely to have you on A Hopeful Romantic. I know all writers get asked this question, but everyone always wants to know, do your nearest and dearest know what you do, and if so, what was their reaction when they found out?
Writing for me was a form of therapy. I’ve always been very open with my family and friends about my writing and its genre.
Those closest to me know how my mind works, so were not that surprised to learn I was writing erotica. Whilst others were surprised but happy surprised. Quite often I get seen as the quiet one, that is until you get to know me.
There are a few friends that started reading my work, but had to stop as all they could think off was ‘Naomi wrote this’
Do you have any unusual writing rituals?
I guess my main ritual is having to physically write the story, filling multiple notebooks before anything reaches my laptop.
So, there’s months of carrying notebooks and pens around, just in case the next scene comes to me in the oddest of places.
I have tried to break this ritual by heading straight to my laptop, but all attempts have been unsuccessful.
If you could bring one of your characters to life, which one would it be and why?
I think out of all the characters, I would love to bring Conor to life. I see him very much as a man with a great outlook on life, free spirited and fun with a very colourful personality. With Conor, a spade is very much a spade. But at the same time, he has this caring side. All make up great qualities of a friend.
What are you working on at the moment?
At the moment I’m working on the third part of the Gemstone Trilogy. Its exiting times. Both Emerald Fire and Sapphire Storm are stories being told from the female leads past. Where as Diamond Ice (The final part to the trilogy) is based in the here and now.
It has plenty of twists, which I’m hoping the readers will enjoy.
