Author Dee S. Knight
S: Good morning Dee and welcome back to The Loft! Your intro is rather titillating, so I have to ask, if you could seize the day, how would you do it?
D: By the … uh, particular pieces of the male anatomy. If you're going to live, live full out. I've tried to do that.
S: (Chuckles.) Short and to the point. I like that!
If you were offered one of the following gifts--a day back in time, a glimpse into heaven, or perfect health--which would you pick and why?
B: Well, the older I get I discount perfect health less and less. Gosh, the things we take for granted when we're young! :) But I think I'd take a day back in time. Depending on the day—a chance to prevent hurting someone, a chance to say goodbye or I love you, a chance to admit love for the first time—can be like a glimpse into heaven. So it's a twofer.
S: What inspires your flights of fantasy?
D: There are two songs, really. 'Til Nothing Comes Between Us," (John Michael Montgomery: ) and "The Song Remembers When," (Trisha Yearwood: ). Both of these send my mind flying, full of "what ifs."
S: (Nods.) Both are lovely songs. I can see why you would find them inspiring. What do you consider your greatest achievement?
D: Being a good friend, daughter, wife. At least, I hope I'm those things. Oh, and making people smile or laugh. If those things could be on my tombstone, I'd smile all through eternity.
S: Complete this sentence: “……really makes me hot.”
D: Seeing someone be cruel really makes me hot—and not in a good way. There's no excuse for cruelty.
S: I agree with you. I tried to teach my son three things: It takes just as much energy to be nice as it does to be cruel, kindness matters, and never tolerate intolerance. I do not find cruelty amusing or justified.
Tell me abut your book, "Naval Maneuvers."
D: Sure. Here's the blurb--
Men and women of the armed forces experience lust and love pretty much like everyone else. Except, well, there is that uniform. And the hard-to-resist attraction of “duty, honor, service” as a man might apply them to a woman’s pleasure. All things considered, romance among the military is a pretty sexy, compelling force for which you’d better be armed, whether weighing anchor and moving forward into desire, dropping anchor and staying put for passion, or setting a course for renewed love with anchor home. Explore the world of love and the military and see just how hot Naval Maneuvers can be.
S: Wow. That sounds pretty hot! You gotta love a man in uniform! Where can readers find your book?
D: It's available at all major booksellers, including--
Barnes & Noble: http://tiny.cc/hd8jyy
