Author Interview: Dangerous Lee

Today I am pleased to present to you all the 59th in a series of Author Interviews. Recently I sat down with the not at all Dangerous Lee and our conversation went something like this:

Paul:  I like to start my interviews by asking if you have any writing rituals?
Dangerous:  No. Lately I have only been jotting down ideas for stories or endings to stories. I find that I have become a lazy writer and I am going to blog more often to get out of that rut.

Paul:  If someone had the power to step into your creative mind what would they see?
Dangerous:  Oh man! There’s a lot going on in this head of mine. I’m not sure someone else could or would want to handle it.

Paul:  How do you find the time to write?
Dangerous:  I don’t. That is an issue for me. I am a web publisher as well as being an author and artist, so I spend most of my time reviewing other people's writing.

Paul:  What is one thing you hope I do not tell the readers?
Dangerous:  Well, since you only know what I tell you, I hope you tell them everything!

Paul:  If you are self-published, what led to you going your own way?
Dangerous:  I self-published because it became obvious to me that it was the only way my book was going to get published.

Paul:  Do you plot your stories or do you just get an idea and run with it?
Dangerous:  I get an idea and run with it. Plotting comes in as part of the process later on.

Paul:  Do you do a lot of editing or do you find that as time goes on your writing is more fully-formed?
Dangerous:  For my first book, Keep Your Panties Up and Your Skirt Down, I did the initial editing, but then had a friend come in as an extra pair of eyes and she did find some errors. Editing is a very important process in publishing, if not the most important part.

Paul:  What is your most recent book? Tell us a little about it.
Dangerous:  Keep Your Panties Up and Your Skirt Down – Six Erotic Tales of Safe Sex, is an anthology of short erotic stories with an emphasis on HIV education.

Paul:  What inspired you to write this book?
Dangerous:  The fact that African Americans have some of the highest rates of HIV infection.

Paul:  Do you also write any poetry, non-fiction or short stories?
Dangerous:  I dabble in poetry when I’m feeling emotional sometimes, but I am not a huge fan of poetry. I am a short story writer. I have tons of story ideas floating in my head, on my iPod, and on various scraps of paper.

Paul:  Do you have any pieces of work that will never see the light of day?
Dangerous:  I hope they all do get to see the light of day because I will write and publish books of short stories until I die.

Paul:  How much marketing do you do for your published works or for your ‘brand’?
Dangerous:  Keep Your Panties Up and Your Skirt Down will be 3 years old soon, but I still promote my book and the website to accompany it ( on a weekly basis. Safe sex will never be passe.

Paul:  What do you do when you’re not writing? Do you have any hobbies or party tricks?
Dangerous:  I am a web publisher, as I stated earlier, and things are really taking off with that, so that’s what I spend most of my time doing. I run The Dangerous Lee News & Entertainment Network ( and I recently had content featured on The TODAY Show, so I am on a high to keep getting people to take notice of me.

Paul:  Thanks a lot, Dangerous. I wish you every success for the future.
