Aloha and a big welcome to fellow romance erotica Muse It Up writer Alix Richards and member of The Lush and Blush Club on fb!!
Alix writes about the deep mysteries and connection of twin flames or twin souls. A subject that always is close to my own heart. Travel through the mystical and heart felt journey in her books. Follow Joy and Jairo through their soul connection and unbreakable bond. She's also just released a new story through Muse It Up Publishing Gods’ Stones: Dark Jewel
Tell our readers a wee bit about yourself. What are 5 things you wished you’d done, have done or are still to do, on the Bucket List? J
1. Physically meet my flame-mate (know him, but haven’t stood in front of him yet). Yep, I’m a believer. :-)
2. Travel to all the historical places in the world.
4. Travel around the country without the worry of money holding me back (is that two? LOL).
5. Find the fountain of youth, or gift of immortality (that will eventually stop once I’ve seen everything), because there isn’t enough time to do all I’d like too. Just sayin’…
Tell us about the genre you write, why do you love it and how did you get into it?
Erotic romance with paranormal elements and fantasy tendencies. I fell into Erotic romance completely by accident. Just so happens, my characters are intensely passionate with one another and that puts them in erotic romance. I have to say I love it because there really aren’t a whole lot of rules, which works great for the sort of writer I am.
What’s your most favorite restaurant in the world? Where, why and the best dish/es they make?
I’m not really a foodie. Although, most places that serve pizza are up there. I mean, who doesn’t LOVE pizza? LOL
Remember those ads for Expedia (if not, just play along) that asked, ‘If you could go anywhere in the world, but have to go right now?’ Where would you have gone and would you have said to YES to right now? What pulls and entices you to that country?
England. Cause from there I could have also visit
and Scotland .
Three birds with one stone as they say. History. There is a rich history in the
Ireland British Isles.
What parts of you, are incorporated into your characters?
Their perseverance, I’d have to say. My characters don’t let things go just because it’s not within societal norms. I’m the same way. I’m odd like that. I don’t follow the flock or herd. I’m my own person and hope that’s conveyed in my characters, as in THEY don’t follow everyone else just because it’s what is the norm.
Favorite male hero/public figure you admire in the world, dead or alive, and why?
Don’t have one per se. I’m more of the type that tends to admire those who stand up for what they believe in and what’s right. Not just what’s right for a select few but for humans as a whole. Without race and gender getting in the way. So I guess one person would be Martin Luther King Jr. Everyone is equal.
Favorite female heroine/public figure you admire in the world, dead or alive, and why?
The same as above. So all those activists in generations past that fought for equal right for women. Susan B. Anthony comes to mind.
Have you ever had a character just “do their own thing?” Have you ever had an argument with one of your characters? Or anything else odd happen?
Yes! All the time. *sigh* I swear they think they’re the ones in control. LOL Example: Originally, when I conceived the ideas that have now become Twin Flames, Gods’ Stones and the other upcoming series’, the first book was supposed to be the deities getting together and unlocking the flame-mates that are in the books I have out now and coming soon. It turned into what is now.
The deities are meeting and bringing about divine mates only to separate and come back together again. Their story isn’t the first one because neither my goddess or god would agree to disagree and just get together as I wanted. Luckily, I was able to rearrange things and still bring about the divine mates returning to the people. And yes, each of them gave me that smug like as if they’d thought of it first. LOL
What’s your passion in life?
Writing, music, reading, my children and grandson (only one right now).
What’s your writer’s routine? Do you write whenever or at certain times? Are you a pantser or plotter? Where do you like to write?
Writer’s routine…can’t say I really have one. If an idea has bitten me, I’ll write until I pass out (key imprinted on my forehead and drool pooled on the tabletop, I know, ewww! LOL.)
On a normal day, I hop through my email accounts, responding and whatnot. Eventually I make my way to my other social accounts and while all that’s going on I’m waiting for coffee to brew (staple diet for us writers I swear. LOL). At some point I open the folders holding my current WIP’s (yes, I always have more than one going at a time). Usually, when I have my mug in hand I’m glancing through my works until one snaps my heels. There are times when I don’t have to look, I just know which one is in demand.
I’m a total pantser. I can’t plot to save my life. Okay, okay, so I CAN plan a little…very little. Not enough to be considered a plotter though. I plot just enough to keep the series in line with the books that came before and those that will follow.
Right now, I’m in the living room with everyone else. So distractions are a constant companion. Whether it be from a person, phone ringing, movie or just flat out interesting situation happening around. Eventually, I’ll get myself moved into my office. As soon as my son is moved out…again. LOL
If you could pick a past life, what time period would appeal to you and why? Would you be male or female? Rich or poor?
The era around 10,000 BCE in North America, the peace that would’ve been in life at that time. Yes, I know about the animals and whatnot. But can you imagine looking in every direction and seeing nothing but nature all around? The plants and natural landscape. It would be the most beautiful thing in the world.
I would chose to be a female, now if I could then chose a male in the next life that would be great too. Getting a view of life before all the rules and regulations that have governed our lives for the past two thousand years would be awesome. At that time in history there really wasn’t rich or poor. But if that were the case (as we don’t know a whole lot about that time in human history) I would pick the richer side. Or rather the ruling class.

The pay out? Their destined future.
Twin Flames: Soul Nature (Twin Flames Book Four)
“The Fates made a mistake.” She rambled as she shoved a hand through her hair and walked toward the sliding glass door. “They had to of, there’s no other explanation. Twin Flames are mirror images, identical. You and I are not mirror images or identical.”
Before he could fully think through his actions, he stepped toward her, grabbed her wrist, and held it too his heart. Kat stopped ranting and went completely still.
“All I know is my animals are at peace with you here.” Miguel stepped closer, his other hand moved to her waist. He kept his voice low. “That hasn’t happened before.”
He released her wrist. It remained against him.
Kat Windcrest-Lyons hasn’t liked Miguel since he cut her pigtail in kindergarten. She avoids anything to do with him. Now she’s the maid-of-honor in her cousin’s wedding ceremony in Vegas and Miguel is the best-man. She vows to handle him for those few hours for her cousin, then return home with no harm done.
Miguel Silverthorne can’t explain why he’s drawn to Kat’s hair. It changes color with her mood. When she’s angry, it bands like the stripes of a tiger. Whether by those actions or others, he maintains a distance from the fiery female, not once considering the reasoning behind his connection to her, until Las Vegas.
What is it about that city that has people, hybrids included, losing their common sense? He doesn’t know, but now he has a flame mate and he refuses to let her go.
Twin Flames: Soul Revealed (Twin Flames Book Five)
“You aren’t the only one plagued by dreams. I’ve had them too.” His eyes roamed over her features, lovingly caressing each curve. Recalling their earlier kiss, his body hardened. He clenched his jaw. “I’ve dreamed about you.”
Toria’s eyes widened and her mouth opened in a perfect ‘O’.
“The same heat and passion you had in yours, was in mine.”
Her throat worked as if she couldn’t swallow and her lips silently moved.
Living together for fifteen years Victoria ‘Toria’ Blackhawk and Diego Ramos Silverthorne have no idea there is more between them than friendship. Until erotic dreams plague both and they must face the deeper meaning behind their nightly dream-romps.
Will Diego accept, Toria, the soul revealed as his divine mate? Can Toria get him to realize that his genetics aren’t a sentence to a lonely life?
Gods’ Stones: Dark Jewel (Wild Darkness Calls/Gods’ Stones Book One)
A small squeak escaped Lenna. She straightened and stepped back to the window, mouth agape, eyes nearly bulging. At the last moment, she swung away. No, the Ancient Gods wouldn’t be that cruel. Not now.
Ridge’s throat worked as his gaze filled with Lenna. Her back was to him and ramrod straight. The black glass of the window reflected her startled expression.
She was beautiful.
Lenna Manchester, a Hawaiian hybrid, will do anything to save her kidnapped family members, even trade sacred Gods’ Stones, going against the Hybrid Council’s laws.
Ridge Silverthorne, a Purebred and highly trained Terentian Warrior, has a mission to capture and confine Lenna for ties to illegal activities.
Once Ridge confines Lenna, their true natures take over, leaving them both defenseless against the other…
Oh dear gods, not that. Please, don’t let it be that…anything but…that.
