Turbulent Passion by G.L. Ross Interview Questions #2
Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.
Book one of the Flyboy Trilogy is Turbulent Passion, which happens to be my first contemporary romance. The Flyboy Trilogy is a suspenseful, sexy, love story centered around the airline industry.
How long did it take you to write?
Turbulent Passion evolved four times over two and a half years. The final take actually came to me in a dream, which is why Lance’s story unfolds from his dreams.
What inspired you to write this story?
Initially I wrote this book as a message for women. I want women to know it is okay, actually honorable, to wait for real love rather than lust. Yes, sex is enjoyable, but making love is out of this world. The story evolved into a suspenseful, humorous, love story; a story that is fun to read, a story that causes you to laugh and cry out loud. A story that makes you search for your significant other.
Of all the characters you’ve ever written, who is your favorite and why?
Definitely Captain Lance Miller. Lance is an arrogant manwhore you want to despise, but you can’t help but love him because of the little boy hidden inside him craving love and acceptance. Lance is every woman’s dream, he is a sexual god who will put your satisfaction first, his body makes you drool, his voice makes you pant, he will ride in on his white horse and save you, he will do all of this but only after he checks his hair in the mirror! Lance is yummy, but he knows it which is a turn off, yet at the same time quite humorous. One reader wrote to me, “I love Lance. He is hot, but so in love with himself I have to laugh. I swear if Lance could do himself he would!” Creating Lance is fun because I know so many men like him. Men who are alpha male, arrogant, gorgeous manwhores who literally fall apart when they meet the one woman meant for them. Men will change; improve, but only for one woman – their soul mate.
What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?
I was a singer and dancer at Six Flags Over Texas while in college. I performed in the Southern Palace & Crazy Horse Saloon. I love music! I love entertaining.
If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
If the person doesn’t have to still be living I would say Marilyn Monroe. It would be so fun to be the sexiest woman ever for one day! If the person needs to be alive I would either want to be Oprah or Barbra Streisand. As Oprah I would share my wealth with many foundations and agencies, be very philanthropic. If I were “Babs” I would hold a huge concert and sing my heart out!
If you were stranded on an isolated island, what’s the one book you’d absolutely wish to have with you?
The Dummies Survival Guide for being Stranded on an Isolated Island.
Do you collect things, like stamps, or key chains, or shoes?
I collect giraffes! I love them!
Favorite food for breakfast?
Hmmm my mind is going several directions…Hee-hee. I guess French toast with powdered sugar and cinnamon. (Delivered by Lance, if possible)
What is your favorite time of day?
Late at night when the house is quiet. I love crawling into bed with a good book.
As a writer, if you could turn back in time and do things differently, would you? What would you change?
I would advertise the book several months in advance prior to release…But, better late than never…right?
The Flyboy Trilogy
Print Length: 213 pages
Bold, arrogant, and gorgeous are three words which describe the playboy of International Air, Captain Lance Miller. Unbeknownst, to everyone touching Lance’s life, is the fact Lance harbors a secret, a secret which continues to affect his relationship with all women. Love and trust do not exist in Lance’s world, only lust, sex, dominance, and an occasional busty blond.
Naïve, new hire, Flight Attendant, Lisa Price recently graduated from college and is desperately searching for her destiny, a destiny which at this time does not include a man, especially a pilot. Lisa is driven to succeed in all areas of her life, but she too has a secret. A secret she must choose to be embarrassed by or to honorably embrace.
Is it possible these polar opposites will find passion and trust in each other’s arms, enabling them to relinquish control and share their secrets, or is their attraction far too turbulent to pursue?
