Ten Things About... Freesia Woodley, an Author Interview

I am so pleased to have author Freesia Woodley with us today!  It's been so much fun getting to know Freesia and I hope you enjoy it too!  If you have other questions or just some sweet words, leave a comment below or check her out at the links at the end of the interview!  Plus, she has this amazing Chibi... 

Let's jump right in:

Indie or Traditionally published? - Tell us how this works for you… 

I’m traditionally published because I didn’t have a lot of venture capital to be indie. I love my editors and they are amazing.

Something people would be surprised to know about you.

I was once propositioned to work as a call girl while I was at my barista job. This experience may or may not have led to a plot bunny.

What do your friends and family think of what you write; do they know? 

This is a very mixed bag. Most of my friends and family are cool with what I write. It may not be their cup of tea but they are supportive. My parents are...less so. It’s cool to them that I have written two books, but they really don’t care for the content.

Who’s your biggest supporter/cheerleader? 

My grandmother has always been my biggest cheerleader. She was a tad bit scandalized by my work but still supports me. Then it would be my younger twin sisters, my friends K & M, and Cameron Craig was my first true fan. It’s so cool that we both debuted around the same time.


Tell us about your first published gay fiction/romance and then your most recent one. 

My first novel is Marry Me, Daddy which is a second chance Daddy kink novel. Dallas struggles with his identity as a Little as well as being femme. Liam, his Daddy, is more than happy to show him that he is perfect as he is.  It came out in August and is available on Kindle Unlimited.

My second novel is Love in Bloom which is a grumpy/sunshine novel. Montana lost his husband two years ago and is now running a business while trying to raise three girls alone. Rohan is the ball of sunshine that barrels into his life to chase the clouds away.  It comes out in November.

What made you decide gay romance was the genre you wanted to write? 

It all started with fanfiction. I had started reading a fic not realizing it was MM until the boys started kissing. I finished it and devoured more. Then I started writing my own. I had tried to write so many other genres and nothing really stuck until MM.

What is your favorite thing about writing gay romance? 

The equality between my MCs. I can write any type of MC and the equality of their relationship is never called into question, unlike with MF. Sadly, females in a lot of MF are either ridiculously submissive or so domineering that it is a complete turn off.

Where do you find inspiration? 

Inspiration literally comes from everywhere. I may see some fanart and BOOM, plot bunny. I may read a meme or convo chain then SMACK, another plot bunny. Other authors are inspiring too because we are all so busy that we share ideas hoping someone will write it for us.

What else do you want us to know about  you? 

I’m hoping to branch into fantasy once The Beau Ties series is wrapped up (there are 6 books total). I want to write about mythical creatures you don’t see often. Don’t get me wrong, I like a good dragon story, but they are EVERYWHERE. A story about a unicorn would be a nice change. I’m also tempted to do some Omegaverse. I’ve got this really lovely series to go with that universe that I hope readers would enjoy.
