Mollie Blake, author of GUILTLESS, took time out of her busy writing schedule to answer some questions for The Big Thrill:
What do you hope readers will take away from this book?
I want readers to escape to a world of luxury and danger whilst feeling good about themselves when they come back to their own world. I hope to give them confidence to try new things, or revisit things they used to like. I hope they are captivated by the characters and fall in love with the good guys. I also add a note that “Help is out there” if anyone is suffering from abuse of any kind, with references at the back of my books to charities and phone numbers on my website.
Was there anything new you discovered, or that surprised you, as you wrote this book?
My research into sex trafficking in the UK and Europe revealed the extent of the problem. I gained a lot of insight from Sophie Hayes’ true story “Trafficked.” It was frightening to know how an ordinary, educated woman could be deceived in such a way that resulted in her being forced into prostitution. I also like trying new things in the bedroom—you did ask!
What authors or books have influenced your career as a writer, and why?
As a former finance director, I never expected to become an author. But I had time on my hands and needed a new challenge. I started reading a lot more, including War and Peace and Crime and Punishment. But it was Fifty Shades of Grey that rekindled my love of sexy stories. Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series inspired me to write romantic thrillers with a good plot and hooks to keep the reader engaged. So here I am.
