Writer Wednesday: Virginia Cavanaugh


Virginia Cavanaugh is a multi-published author of erotic romance. Her work covers many sub-genres as new characters present themselves to her every day. After working for years as a nurse in pediatrics, her love of the alpha hero sparked her desire to bring her own stories to life. When not playing housewife, mother, maid, laundress, taxi driver or just general all-around slave, she enjoys finding a quiet corner to read or work on her next story.

1. The tagline of your website it Pulse Pounding Romance. What is it about romance novels that gets your pulse pounding?

I would have to say a mixture of the heart pounding romance mixed with just the right amount of action packed plot.

2. Tell us a little about Just For Tonight. What makes it a different and compelling read?

Often romance reads tend to go through the fantasy of romance. Something to get lost in and take a reader away from their daily lives. In this story I took two middle class people and gave them a more true to life chance at romance. In my humble opinion this is another way to give a more realist view of romance to fuel the fantasy of finding love in day to day life.

3. You’ve written so many books. What keeps you inspired?

I’ve found inspiration in everything from a picture to something someone says in day to day life. Often a piece of dialogue will pop into my head, leading me to search out the character that spoke up.

4. How do you juggle writing and family life? Is there a secret? Or is it always madness?

Madness. I have a large family and two very needy dogs. I try to do most of my writing while the kids are school, but that doesn’t always work out as well as I’d like. But if someone finds the secret let me in on it. LOL

5. Out of your back catalogue, do you have a secret favorite? If so which one and why?

I have to say that Winter’s Shadow is a little special. I have never had a story move and flow so easily. It was the fastest I’ve ever written and has received great reviews. 3 five star reviews from review sites. Every other story, no matter how much I love it, has made me pull teeth on different days to move ahead. Each story has a special place in my heart, but I just wish they were all as easy to get out as Winter’s Shadow was.


Kelly Devers has a crush on her co-worker Thomas Brigs. For a year he’s been the object of her fantasies, but she hasn’t dared to make a move on him. But when Kelly finds out Thomas is leaving town, she throws caution to the wind and gives into the yearning she’s suppressed for far too long. Passion ignites as their bodies come together and Kelly is determined to enjoy the steamy loving. Even if it can’t last forever.
