Getting the Dirt on Mari Brown.

Today, I am getting the dirt on Mari Brown.  Yes, I got her to sit down for an interview.  This should be a good one!!!!
Mari Brown is an author of Erotic Romance, so if this is not your thing you can close out the tab if you wish.




How does your family feel about the genre of books you write? Do any of them read your books?
No one seems terribly surprised I write smut. They like to pick on me for it but all in good fun. I have an uncle who introduces me as his niece that writes porn LOL. I know my mom has read a few of the books because she’s my formatter...and I have a cousin who has read them all as well.

 How long have you been writing? 
I’ve been writing as far back as I can remember but I didn’t get serious until 2012 after losing my grandpa I decided I needed to achieve my dream before it was too late I self published in Jan 2014 and haven’t looked back.

 How long does it take, on average, to write a book?
If my creative juices are flowing a rough draft can be done in 2-4 weeks. However I take anywhere from 4-6 months to work on making it “pretty”. my editing process is not something I rush. I’d rather put out quality work over quantity.

 Do you like to have a timeline, structure or do you just write as you go? 
I just write as I go but I keep a composition book for each novel and keep notes on plot etc so I stay consistent from start to finish in a novel.

 Do you put parts of your own personality into your characters?
Yes, I’m not sure if I could write without putting parts of my personality or even life in my stories.

 What game/app on your phone, is your favorite?
Farmville 2 it’s my guilty pleasure.
Mine is Marvel Avenger's Acacedmy 

 What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Ben & Jerry’s Double Fudge Brownie… but I love Ice cream of all kinds I live in the south it's always hot so ice cream is a must have staple.

 If we were to rudely snatch your purse from you, what items would we find inside?
My wallet, pill container, a phone, change, brach’s peppermints, cigarettes, lighter, a pen and if my husband is with me his diabetic kit often ends up in there as well.

 Tell us 5 interesting facts most readers wouldn’t know about you.
1- I’m an only child and very spoiled(he he)
2- I love Flip-Flops in case of extreme cold I have one pair of chucks
3- I’ve been a stay at home wife/mom since I was 19
4- I am a HUGE University of Alabama Football fan ROLL TIDE!!!!
5- I never wear makeup (except if I’m doing a professional photo shoot) but I always have my finger and toe nails painted if I leave the house.
