Welcome to Author Spotlights on Mondays! Dorothy Kane Liddle is visiting this week and giving away a copy of Ice Cream Castles in the Air to one lucky commenter! Be sure to check out her super hot excerpt and interview!
When middle-aged Kate Hoffman meets a much younger Mark Robinette in the Europe of the sexually-liberating 1970s, she learns that present can become past again. Given a second chance to savor the boundless passion of youth, Kate learns fairytales are not just for boyish kings, but for all who remain free to dream.
“I want you, Kate,” Mark said, and let his hands slide back from under her skirt and then lifted her black sweater blouse over her head. Kate had thought ahead and not worn a bra. Her breath caught in her throat as Mark’s mouth completely enveloped one of her breasts and he began sucking hard.
“Oh, Mark, that feels so good.”
And she reveled when he released that breast and repeated the move on the other one. Kate looked over his head and saw the bed. It was neatly made, but was just a mattress on the floor. When Mark looked up at her face again, Kate said, “Now it’s my turn to suck a little.”
Kate slid slowly down Mark’s torso, peeling away his jeans as she did so. She had only performed this act once in her marriage, and she did not like it. She was surprised at how much she was looking forward to it now.
As she began to kiss his hardness still hidden behind his jockey shorts, she heard Mark say, “Take your time, Kate. I think I can hold on longer this time.”
“Good,” she said, looking up at him and winking. “I thought that might be the case.”
She could feel her eyes widen as she peeled his shorts down over his knees and saw his most virile cock standing at full attention and directly in front of her face. Whatever she had found distasteful about the act before was not part of her thinking now. She kissed the side of his cock all the way down to the root and back up the other side. She planted light kisses on the head. Then she looked up at him, smiled lovingly, and then took him completely down to his scrotum, sucking him hard and deep.
Mark moaned, and she felt him pull the back of her head deeper into him. She knew she was about to gag, but just at the last moment, Mark released his hold on her head and she could pull back.
“I want you now, Kate.”
Mark lifted her, and she wrapped her legs around his waist. He carried her to the bed and laid her as carefully as he could onto the mattress. He placed her legs over his shoulders.
“I want to get you ready,” he said and then buried his face deep into her pussy. She screamed aloud at the pleasure he had released, and when he found the hard nub of her pleasure spot, she screamed again, louder this time. The room had suddenly gone completely dark for her.
She grabbed the back of his head, pushing Mark deeper inside her, until she could feel the rumble of the volcano building at the core of her existence.
“I’m ready,” she said, gasping and gulping for air. “I’m ready, my darling.”

Me: What inspired you to write your first book?
Dorothy: I have always been fascinated by the younger man-older woman relationship –or the May-December idea. In spite of the age difference, I believe there is a potential for balance there that benefits both equally, though differently.
Me: Do you see writing as a career?
Dorothy: I’ve been writing for 30 years, and it remains the only work I’ve ever looked forward to getting up in the morning to do.
Me: Give us some insight into your main character. What makes him/her special?
Dorothy: Kate is a very ordinary woman on the threshold of experiencing some of the extraordinary possibilities that life offers us all.
Me: Is there a message in your novel you hope to convey to your readers?
Dorothy: The act of physical love is the best consciousness-expanding drug we have.
Me: How did you come up with the title?
Dorothy: A lyric from Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now,” a popular song of the era when the book is set.
Me: I usually get plot ideas in the shower and while driving. When/where does inspiration strike you?
Dorothy: From the act of writing itself. I prefer to have little more than a vague clue as to what I’ll be writing about when I sit down at the keyboard. My experience has been most of the pre-conceived ideas I’ve tried to bring to the writing session fall apart as either wooden or contrived – sort of like that dream you think is brilliant and hilarious, until you wake up and realize it makes no sense.
Me: What new stories are you working on?
Dorothy: Currently have two novellas in contract/submission. One deals with quite literally a four hour foreplay, and is under contract with Extasy Books. The other is about a 62-year old divorcee who re-unites with her ex-husband. The latter is an attempt to move the needle from “mommyporn” to what I’m calling “menoporn,” if that’s not too denigrating. Which I don’t mean it to be at all.
WIP’s include a full-length novel based mainly in Paris, another novella set in a fictional private golf club and another May-(late) December novella.
Dorothy Kane Liddle began writing when it became clear that there was no day job that could provide the satisfaction that writing did. Liddle has been at it for more than thirty years, publishing primarily as a newspaper and magazine writer and humorist. Raised in New Orleans, Liddle now lives in the Seattle, WA area. This is her first novel. The author would like to offer a special thanks to her elementary school nuns for teaching the fundamentals of sentence structure, good grammar, vocabulary and punctuation, though Liddle acknowledges the irony of applying skills taught by a Catholic religious order to the erotic romance genre.
