About Payne Hawthorne:
Payne Hawthorne is a new driving force in the indie author/self-published world of, Romance/fiction/erotica and her favorite genre, Paranormal Romance. She currently has four series to her credit: Dormant Desires, Alpha Pack trilogy and Dormant Desires book 4, CAIN. My Demon Master. AdventuresinPayne, and her latest addition, The Elysian.
Payne's stories are full of steamy, passionate sex. Her consistent thread is love as an untapped source of power and should remain the most important ingredient in all human existence.
Payne's characters are identifiable and well developed. Her plot and story lines are as unique as you will ever read. Her vision is an odd combination of ethereal/spiritual/emotional, with highly charged erotic scenes throughout each story.
Her imagination is vivid, modern, futuristic, and never ending. She often sprinkles in her favorite dynamic between a dominate male and a submissive female. She also detests formula anything, so you can be guaranteed the most original and unique read/listen ever!
She has now released 4 titles as audio books. All narrated by an up and coming male narrator who is a master of accents. Payne’s passion is producing audio books so look for her other titles on audio as she can afford to produce them.

Interview With Payne Hawthorne:
- Can you tell us a little about your books?
All of my books are some sort of paranormal/supernatural with highly charged erotic scenes throughout. Also quite a bit of bad language.
My, Dormant Desires Series/ALPHA PACK and CAIN, are about unsuspecting humans whose meeting ignites dormant lycanthropy genes in any on the planet who have enough ancient shifter genetics. It’s an anthology and excellent on audio because my narrator can do all the accents. Jacob is our lead male and is a Scotsman. It’s a very fun, super erotic and also comedic series.
Alpha Pack Compilation
My AdventuresinPayne series is about angels and demons, soul mates and reincarnation. REMNANT is the first installment and is now available on Kindle. The second in the series is DISCOVERY and has dragons and demons in it and will be released around the beginning of July. Not as much sex/erotica in this series although still enough to tantalize. It’s a very emotional and interesting read. It’s unlike any other story you’ve ever read, guaranteed!
AdventuresinPayne, Discovery pre-order:
THE ELYSIAN, is about an immortal alien female trapped on earth for 1200 years. It’s written in first person and told from her perspective. It follows her through a couple years and her lovers and new loves she meets along the way. I have plans to continue on in this story and make it into a series.
FIRE CLOTHED IN SKIN, My Demon Master Series, is more about BDSM and erotica than any of my others. Dillon is just about to turn 40 and meets Ezekiel who is the Demon King. He claims her as his mate and Queen and this ignites her dormant demon genetics. This first one is a novella and just a four hour read. Part Two, REDEMPTION of FIRE, will be released in Aug. 2015.
Fire Clothed in Skin
- Do you have a favorite character to write about?
I love writing about love. I adore soul mates and ancient bonds that are reignited. I like to get to know my characters and give each of them individuality. My favorite character I write is Collin/Lord Adriel from AdventuresinPayne … I have plans to write an entire book just from his point of view.
- Do you prefer to write standalones or series?
Always a series because I get attached and can’t stand to leave them. I have to continue on in those worlds.
- When did you first know you wanted to write a book?
Almost ten years ago I wrote 15 chapters in Collin’s story. It was his adolescence and first time in a human/mortal body. (He was an angel before). Once that poured out of me I knew someday I would finish it and then continue on with their story. It took me awhile to get to a place where I could write almost full time, but I am here now and loving every second of it! (Except the editing, I hate editing.)
- Do you have a favorite spot to write?
In my big snuggler chair, (Chair and a half), with my laptop. It’s in the living room and I can see the garden out front. Ideal spot.
- Do you listen to music while you write?
Sometimes I do, but often I prefer just quiet so I can totally think. If I’m listening to music it invariably ends up in the story. I love Matchbox Twenty/Rob Thomas, Pink, One Republic, Phillip Phillips etc.
- What's one random fact about yourself that you can share?
I was a horse trainer for 25 years. I traveled and taught clinics and lectured on the phycology of a prey animal in comparison to humans who as a species are classified as predators.
- Re you attending any author signing this year?
No, not yet. Not known enough. Someday though I hope so!
- What writing projects are you currently working on?
