An Author’s Desk: V.L. Locey

Author V.L. Locey is my guest at “An Author’s Desk.” Her O Captain! My Captain!, , the third book in the ‘To Love a Wildcat’ series from Secret Cravings Publishing,  is  an Amazon bestseller in sports fiction. V.L. will share some tidbits about herself, her writing area, and her writing routine.


I love worn jeans, belly laughs,  reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, the New York Rangers,  comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.) I share her life with my husband, my daughter, one dog, two cats, a steer named after a famous N.H.L. goalie,  a pig named after a famous President, and a flock of assorted domestic fowl.

Building a ficitonal sports teamAs you can see, my work area is my kitchen table. We live in an incredibly small house, so this is where I sat up shop when I began writing seriously. Once my daughter is on her own (she`s a commuting college freshman this fall so it won`t be for a few years yet) I have plans to convert her bedroom into an office. One with a real desk and a Fathead of Henrik Lundqvist on one of the walls. *sighs dreamily*

I do my best writing in the morning, although I do put in about 6 to 7 hours per day at the laptop. I generally begin writing at 8 am, if not before, break for lunch, do a bit more, then attend to the domestic chores as well as the farm chores. After dinner I try to do an hour of editing every night, but sometimes Pinterest or Facebook distracts me. When it`s hockey season, there is nothing that gets done after dinner aside from me putting on my lucky Rangers t-shirt and getting ready for that night’s game!


O Captain! My Captain!

An Erotic Hockey Romance from Secret Cravings Publishing (July, 2014)

Naked man in hockey helmet and skatesO Captain! My Captain! is an Amazon bestseller in sports fiction, as well as being the third in the ‘To Love a Wildcat’ series. The story centers on two forty-somethings who decide to give romance another chance, even though both had previously been cross-checked by love

Being a single working mother isn`t easy. Just ask Maggie Charles. She`s juggling a job she hates, a rebellious teenage son, and the aftereffects of an abusive first marriage. There isn`t room in her life for a love affair, not that anyone would want to romance someone her age anyway, right? So why, after all these months, when she runs into the strapping Wildcats` captain at a charity event, does the sight of Derrick Andersson leave her so breathless once again? Is that really desire burning in the captain`s green eyes when he looks at her? Is it possible for a couple of been-there-and-done-thats to find love the second time around?
