When Lara dies at the hands of a Manhattan lawyer during a sex game, his defense attorney, Carl, hires Simone, a psychiatrist, professor and author of books on sexual behavior to help him buttress his argument that Lara’s death was accidental. To help his defense, Carl’s client has written a detailed account of his steamy, year-long relationship with Lara. Carl gives the text to Simone for analysis. While evaluating the presumed killer’s writing, Simone continues to receive psychiatric patients with sexual disorders and unusual fantasies, and to research strange sexual behavior for her next book. Meanwhile, Simone’s clinical partner, friend and research colleague, Edward, is working with the police to capture a serial killer who is torturing and killing women. From hot and unusual sex and interesting psychiatric patients, to the swing houses of New York and Paris, this fast-paced page-turner is a blend of mystery, suspense, humor, romance and erotica.

I always loved to write, but three years ago, I decided to do it professionally.
2. How long does it take you to write a book?
In my case, I usually take six months to write a novel, and some more time to edit it, before saying, “Okay, it’s ready for the readers’ eyes.”
3. What is your work schedule like when you're writing?
As I’m an active lawyer, my schedule must work around my juridical life, so I write whenever I can. I write at least a little bit every day.
4. What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
The surprises I prepare for the reader on every page.
5. How do books get published?
It’s a long process…You can try to get a publisher, or do it on your own. I published with a regular publisher at first, and then I decided to go independently.
6. Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
I do a lot of research, I buy articles from universities, I have a wonderful friend who’s a former special agent to enlighten me about police information, I search the ‘net, read books…I go through a long process before I’m ready to write.
7. When did you write your first book and how old were you?
My first book was written when I was ten years old, but I destroyed it, because I didn’t want people to read it. As a kid, I was not prepared to explain where my ideas came from.

12. Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they?
Write everyday a little bit, for yourself, and the more you write, the better you will do. The phrase “practice leads to perfection” means a lot for us writers.
13. Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?
Yes, I love to talk to them, and I try to answer to everybody. I hear so many different things, from supportive comments and compliments, to one reader who said to me: “I want to make love to you. Of course, he was confusing me with my main character, Lara, but that was funny.

Surprises! I believe the reader must be surprised by the story.

17. What Would you like my readers to know?
That I love their opinions! I love to know what they think about my novels. The other day, a reader asked for one of the characters to experience more of a love life, so I’m thinking about that for the third novel of the series.
