I’m welcoming Brita Addams today!

Hey there, Brita! Let’s get started, shall we?


Me: What genres do you enjoy reading most?

Brita: I am very into gay fiction at the moment.


Why do you write and when did you start?

Brita: I write because it’s who I am, it’s a part of me and I couldn’t NOT do it if I tried. I’ve written most of my life, but only decided to take the publication step about two years ago. I never thought I’d ever be published and I still have to pinch myself to believe it’s all happened.


Me: Much of your writing is rather erotic, though not all. I’m curious, what your family feels about your writing? Are they supportive?

Brita: I have the best family in the world. They are proud of my writing, though none of them will read my racy stuff. I couldn’t ask for more support.


Me: What’s the most interesting comment you’ve received from a reader?

Brita: At Gay Lit, a reader came up to me at a book signing, and pointed at the cover flats on the table, saying, “I’ve read this one, and this one and this one.” She was one of those readers I didn’t even know, but she’s read my stuff.


Me: Writing can be a lonely venture. Sometimes, sacrifices are required in our lives. Are the sacrifices worth it? What are your continuing career goals?

Brita: I honestly don’t sacrifice. I have my days sorted in such a way that I write during the day, when my husband is doing his own thing. At five, dinner is ready and we spend the rest of the evening together. When we have date day (usually Friday), I’m there, no doubt.

I plan to continue writing until I can’t. I don’t believe I could stop if I tried.


Me: What did you eat for breakfast this morning?

Brita: I had my usual one cup of coffee and a cinnamon raisin bagel with crunchy peanut butter.


Me: What’s your favorite position?

Brita: Sitting up with my laptop on my lap.
