Scarlet Blackwell - Divine Magazine Spotlight

Scarlet likes cats and hats and firmly believes that the only thing better than one attractive man is two attractive men.

She writes m/m and m/f romance and has been known to dabble in horror and saucier side-projects (Amber March).

Let's start with you telling us a little bit about yourself, Scarlet.
I have been a writer for many years and my first M/M stories were published in 2009. I don’t write full time but still dream of doing so.

Nine-One-One. A play on words because 911, while being the emergency number for the United States, also has another connotation: 9/11. It was this I chose to write about and some of the people who were hardest hit – the emergency services.

Scarlet Blackwell - USA Today feature

Three books on my keeper shelves:

• Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I've read this book maybe five times or more. I guess I'm attracted to the anti-hero Heathcliff and I shamelessly admit he's the role model for all my heroes. Dark, dangerous and delicious. No one can say they've truly read romance until they've read this book.

Why I write gay romance

I wasn’t so different from other man on man or m/m authors in that I came to it via fanfiction. I became intrigued by the rumours surrounding two members of one of my favourite bands. Because they are both hot, I was titillated rather than disturbed by the idea that they might be sleeping together. I was shocked though when I found stories about them on the internet. For all of two minutes. Then I wanted to try my hand at it because I really wanted to write these two gorgeous men together as I imagined them to be.
