I've had the privilege of knowing Bella and reading her words for a few years now, so the flow of this conversation is a little more casual. I basically shot her a ton of questions and she was gracious enough to indulge me and answer.
- How/where/when you write?
- How you pick character names?
- How you dive for picspiration?
- How has being pregnant changed your writing habits?
- What was the publishing process like for Downpour?
Thanks so much for the great information, Bella! Be sure to check out her blog, where she posts an excerpt from the story.
Weathering one of the fiercest storms of your life can seem almost impossible, but once you’re through it, things can be a whole lot brighter. Markus Simmons, a pre-med student who moonlights as a barista, narrates as he and his long-time crush, Clinton Stewart, learn more about themselves and what they’re willing to go through to heal and be together.
It took weeks before Markus knew his crush’s name. It took months of serving him coffee every morning before Markus learned that Clinton was an American History major. It took nearly six months into their senior year at UC Davis before Markus accidentally found out that Clinton had no family, few friends, and rather than the dorms, he actually lived in the library.
Release date: 11/27 from Loose Id Publishing.

Bella Leone is an erotic romance author who discriminates against no combination of lovers. M/M, M/F, F/F, and all multiples thereof are fair game. She writes about people in like, in lust, and, ultimately, in love. Bella recently moved to New England from Arizona with her husband and furry minions. When she’s not writing, she’s usually lending a helping hand to other authors or indulging in her penchant for historical & paranormal fiction, petite brunettes, and athletic gingers.
