Spotlight Sunday: Rosemary Willhide

Meet Rosemary Willhide!

Hello! I’m Rosemary Willhide, and, “I write the dongs that make your ho ha sing!”I’m an actress, turned fitness instructor, turned erotic romance author.

I live in Las Vegas with my husband, Bill and adopted dog, Harley, and still teach six spin classes a week. It keeps me sane…ish. 

For me, writing began as a dream. Right after I read “Fifty Shades of Grey,” three times…well five, but whose counting, I kept dreaming about Alexander Skarsgard from, “True Blood.” I know, right! The dream was always the same. He showed up to take my spin class in a black leather jacket. I had on a workout top and no pants! The wheels started turning. I figured why not pair a feisty fitness instructor with a dirty little mouth and a Hollywood heartthrob with an ass that just won’t quit. That’s how Nia Kelly and Derek Pierce were born.

Once I sat down to write, the story just flowed. Before I knew it, I had a three book series, THE SWEPT AWAY TRILOGY, plus a novella called DEREK’S CHRISTMAS CAROL. My latest release is a twisty BDSM romance called, TEMPTATION. 

So I as I plod along, I’m always trying to make time for everything, including my guilty pleasures like Bravo TV, Netflix, and wine! Life as “The Kinky Romantic” is busy, but never dull. Live it, love it, and never be afraid to dream big.

Author Interview 

Where are you from?

As I mentioned in my bio, I live in Vegas, but I grew up in a small town in PA. I’m one of six children. (Yes, we’re Catholic. LOL!)

If you had to perform in a talent competition right now, what would your talent be?

Since I have a degree in theatre, I’d probably belt out a show tune. It’s been awhile since I’ve sang, but the movie, LALA LAND makes me want to sing again. 

What’s your favorite movie quote? (Make sure to include the name of the movie)

From BRIDESMAIDS, “That’s a hungry bear sandwich. It’s meats and cheeses.”

(Pretty much every line Melissa McCarty says in that movie is classic. ) 

Tell us a fun fact about yourself that would surprise your readers. 

My first performing gig in Vegas, was as Betty Boop at the MGM Grand. (There are pictures somewhere. LOL!)

Okay, back to books, what genres do you write?

I like to think of myself as the kinky romantic. My books are erotic with loads of sex, but there’s also a good dose of humor, suspense, and heart. 

What is your inspiration?

As I mentioned in my bio, Alexander Skarsgard was my inspiration and muse for Derek Pierce in THE SWEPT AWAY TRILOGY. Henry Cavill was my muse for Adam Maxwell in TEMPTATION. It usually starts with a moment I see on screen and then the voices in my head start talking. 

Tell us about your latest book?

TEMPTATION is a twisty BDSM romance about Jessica Blake, an entreatment reporter, and Adam Maxwell, a Dom and Casino Mogul in Vegas.

What would you do to get ahead at work? Would you mix business with pleasure?

All it takes is a few favors, a chance encounter, and a whole lot of bravery to get the chance of a lifetime. Have you ever fantasize about someone you’ve seen around town but knew was way out of your reach? What would you do if they suddenly pursued you and offered to teach you about those taboo things you’ve been dreaming about, and some you never knew were possible. Like life, nothing is perfect in Vegas. There is danger, lust, money and power.
