AUTHOR BIO: 



Jani is a skincare formulation scientist by day and a writer of steamy stories by night. She is married to a special man, and her two children and their partners are the sunshine in her life. She is a voracious reader and would spend her last dollar on a book - always fascinated that for the mere price of a book, she can escape her world for a while and see through someone else's eyes.

Besides reading, her favourite 'thing' is traveling - she has traveled the world, learning about the ways people live and has come to the realization that no matter where we live, we all ultimately want the same things. Her hobby - Scrapbooking - keeps her up till way after midnight and her usual subjects are her family and her travels.
Ever since she can remember, Jani wanted to write stories about people, about their lives and loves. Relationships and Happiness - arguably the most difficult things to master in life and yet exactly what everyone ultimately desires (in her humble opinion).

EXCERPT




The big house was silent; it was only 7:30 am. I assumed everyone was still asleep. Quietly, I padded my way downstairs to the kitchen. It was time I had a turn at preparing breakfast for everyone.

I looked up toward the doorway, Nick came sauntering in, only wearing his pajama pants. They hung off his hips in a way that made my insides unfurl, the path from his navel going south covered by a thin line of dark hair, his well-defined abs opening up to a glorious chest with a smattering of dark hair begging to be touched. Oh my! Nicholas Gallagher definitely works out.

His sleep-mussed hair was sexy as hell, and the dark shadow from his stubble gave him a rugged appearance. He saw me and instantly his lips curled into a killer smile, his green eyes smouldering beneath his dark brows. My belly pulled tight and I had to squeeze my legs together to ease the itch that settled between my legs. God! He was mouth-watering. I would love to let that stubble scratch my itch.

“What a lovely surprise.” He stood behind me and pulled me into his hard chest, his stubble scraping my neck as he planted a warm and wet kiss on my skin. Then he turned me around and before I knew it, he’d lifted me onto the kitchen counter. He pushed my legs open and positioned himself between them, cupping my face in his big hand.

“You look so sexy,” he breathed, peering at me from under his thick black lashes.

“You don’t look too bad yourself,” I said as I messed his hair even more with both my hands. My fingers could not keep still, they had to touch him. “Breakfast smells good. How long before it comes

“I only just put it in. Another thirty minutes…”

“Hmm,” he groaned as his mouth found mine, “no time to waste.” He slid his hands over my shoulders and found my breasts. He squeezed them in his warm hands, before rubbing his thumbs over the tight nubs. His touch sent bolts of electricity straight to my groin. Heat pooled between my legs. My panties dampened against my skin.

His hands trembled lightly as he skimmed them over my ribs, and the curve of my hips, till he found the hem of my nightdress and pushed the silky fabric up my thighs, exposing my apex. Next he slipped his fingers under the lace of my panties, into my slick wetness. I drew in a sharp breath, the feel of his finger exquisite on my swollen flesh.

“Ah God, so wet,” he moaned. “I need to taste you.”

I don’t know whose need was greater, his to taste me or mine to have his mouth on me.






Interview with Jani Kay – author of ‘Open Your Eyes’ 

What is it that you enjoy about writing fiction? 


When I write I go into a different world. It is the purest form of escape. Time stands still. All my senses are engaged. I am fully alive, but in an alternative universe. It is a feeling unlike any other. Addictive.

I love peeling back the layers and discovering all that is hidden beneath the surface of the book characters. I want to keep digging till I get to the very core of them – of what makes them tick, their inner desires, their conflicts and fears - searching into their very soul.

I am an observer of people and their behaviours; you will always find me in the back corner of a café, sipping a latte, watching people, imagining what goes on in their lives. 


When did you first know you wanted to become a writer?

My childhood dream was to be a writer - I wrote elaborate stories with well-developed plots and characters. I told my younger brothers stories I made up as I went, every night before bed. I have a VERY active imagination... My writing style is the same – I am what is known as a ‘pantser’ - weaving stories by the seat of my pants, making it up as I go, letting the characters speak for themselves. I merely record the story they show me in a movie in my head.

As a teenager I spent school vacations reading. I would start a book in the morning and only close my eyes when done at around 3 am, sleep a bit, wake and start the next book... I have always been a voracious reader...

I would spend my last dollar on a book. Reading gives insight into another human being’s thoughts, expands your mind - all for the small price of a book – often less than the cost of a coffee. Amazing!

What made you write your first book? 

Fear of failure is the biggest stumbling block to realising our dreams. All my life up until last year, I waited, thinking I had to write something really profound. Then one day I had an AHA moment - I realised I didn’t need to, I could simply write what I enjoyed and connected with - steamy adult romance... seems there are an awful lot of people who like reading it...

I realised that time is fleeting, that I had do it NOW - not waiting any longer to realise my dreams. I had to open my eyes to the possibilities. I didn’t want to die with regrets of never having the courage to follow my passion of writing.

Tell us about ‘Open Your Eyes’ – your début novel.

I started writing Open Your Eyes in the air, flying between Australia and New York in January 2013. It's a very long flight…

I’d just been to New York for New Year – to see the ball drop in Times Square with my daughter – something on our ‘bucket list’. So a big part of the story plays off in New York.

In Open Your Eyes, Natalie is a disillusioned forty year old woman who is in search of inner peace and tranquillity; she wants to escape her problems by having a fun and relaxing vacation in NYC with her feisty daughter, Olivia. No pressure, no worries, no complications…

Natalie believes in second chances in spite of her demons. Separated from domineering Gabriel – whose cruel and jealous ways hurt her deeply – she still hopes for reconciliation for her family’s sake.

However, her world is turned upside down when she unexpectedly meets a charming, seductive bachelor – the famous photographer Nicholas Gallagher - who awakens her latent desires and sweeps her off her feet in a delicious holiday romance.

Just as Natalie starts falling for Nick, Fate steps in. Caught up in a heart wrenching love triangle, she is forced to make a difficult choice. Gabriel is her first love, the man whose name and children she bears. Nick truly sees her, deep into her soul. Both men want her. Who will she choose? Because above all, Natalie wants a second chance at love and happiness.

So one of the issues we explore in ‘Open Your Eyes’ is how she deals with her search for her true soul mate. Is it ever too late; are we ever too old to stop yearning for that special connection?


Why is ‘Open Your Eyes’ based on mature adults? 

Natalie is forty, experienced and mature, but she still has a LOT of living left in her. So we follow her journey in ‘Open Your Eyes’. And yes, sex is still very hot and steamy at that age!! Probably even better, as she is in the prime of her life... she knows what she likes.
