Fellow Escape author Ros Baxter writes fresh, funny, genre-busting fiction featuring feisty heroines, quirky families, and heroes to make you sigh and tingle. She also took time to answer some of the more important questions of our time.
RHYLL: If a book reading competition at Eurovision were held, which singer would you choose to lisp, screech or croon pages from your latest novel, The Seek?
ROS: Ani DiFranco. Not sure anyone else could get the profanity right.
RHYLL: Good grammar is sexy, agree or disagree?
ROS: Agree. I’m still scarred by the love letter I received at 16 that began “Dear Sweaty” (I choose to believe he was trying to call me ‘sweetie’, but the relationship died a swift death nevertheless). But, on the other hand, the recent elevation of Grammar Nazi-ness to some kind of higher calling shits me to tears. I’d still choose someone who can tell me a good story, kiss like a boss, or sing me a lullaby over someone who has a position on the Oxford comma.
RHYLL: How do you think a Thighmaster could be introduced into foreplay?
ROS: Hmmmm now, well, following my general theory that all exercise equipment is an unsexy thing, the first thought that comes to mind is to deliver emergency behavioural correction if he gets it wrong. But that seems kind of harsh.
So I’m thinking maybe as something unsexy to think about when you’re trying to make the moment last a little longer…? Let’s face it, nothing is guaranteed to cool your ardor quicker than thinking about your thighs or exercise. And both together? Ice bucket.
RHYLL: Tin foil underwear is best worn...
RHYLL: Thanks, Ros.
