Today V.L Locey spins the wheel!
- If you could spend a week in one historical place, where and when would you choose?
Greece. I’m a huge Greek mythology buff and it’s always been a dream of mine to visit Greece and see the ancient ruins in person.
2.We all know about those big prizes such as the Nobel and Pulitzer and Academy Award. If someone invented a new prize that you were a shoe-in to win, what would it be?
It would be the ‘Drink Coffee While Making Words and Chatting on Facebook About Mats Zuccarello’ award. (For those who don’t know who he is, Mats Zuccarello is a hockey player for my beloved New York Rangers.)
3. You’re on a ship with Mark Twain, Albert Einstein, Catherine the Great, David Bowie, Billie Holiday, and Gengis Khan. But oh no! The ship is sinking and the lifeboat only holds four people. You get to decide—who gets on that lifeboat?
For sure David Bowie is the first to get a seat. I’m still not over his passing as I was a huge fan. Then Mark Twain as he’s been an inspiration to me for many reasons. Albert Einstein would get a seat and then I guess me. Or should I be noble and go down with the ship? Ugh! Moral questions at 5:30 am. The fourth seat goes to Billie Holiday. I’ll float alongside and hopefully not turn into shark bait.
4. What is your worst phobia?
5. Paper or plastic?
I prefer paper but don’t get it anymore.
6. Someone is writing your biography. What’s the title? And who plays you in the movie?
“She Loved Hockey and Wrote Steamy Man Love Stuff” would be the title. Melissa McCarthy would be a good choice to play me.
7. If one of your characters were to practice a random act of kindness, what would it be?
Victor Kalinski finding a foundling kitten and adopting it. Trust me, that would be HUGE for Vic.
8. One of your books is being made into a movie. Who would you cast for the major roles?
We’ll use my new book, Open Net. I’d cast Carey Price in the role of August Miles since he was the inspiration for the characters looks and skill set. As for Sal Castenada, that role would go to Diego Luna with shorter hair.
9. You’ve been invited to a party being held by your boss. Which of your characters will you take with you as your guest?
Not Victor that’s for sure. Probably Mario and Lila from ‘Snap Shot’ or perhaps Tennant and Jared from the coauthored book I wrote with Rj Scott, Changing Lines.
10.What is your least favorite thing about California?
I’ve never been so I have nothing but wonderful things to say about California.
Augie, as his friends and teammates call the unassuming young goaltender, is on the fast track to the pros. The starting goalie for the Cayuga Cougars, he has a year or two in Cayuga to hone his skills and all his career dreams will have come true. Pity his personal life isn’t riding the same high. He’s the only one among his group of friends without that special someone to call his own. Until he meets Salvatore Castenada at a lakeside party. The attraction is white-hot and more than a little wonderfully overwhelming for the romantically inexperienced goalie. August quickly discovers that Sal is everything he’s dreamed of in a man: mature, settled, sinfully handsome, and filled with gentle humor. Sal is also HIV positive.
Will Sal’s revelation about his status end this budding relationship before it can even begin? Or will the two men be able to handle the challenges life—and a championship run for the Cougars—throws at them?

V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, yoga, belly laughs, walking, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, Dr. Who, Torchwood, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.) She shares her life with her husband, her daughter, one dog, two cats, a flock of assorted domestic fowl, and two Jersey steers.
When not writing spicy romances, she enjoys spending her day with her menagerie in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania with a cup of fresh java in hand. She can also be found online on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and GoodReads.
