Interview with Jay S. Wilder, Author of Single Dad Two Times

19 Nov 2019

What can you tell us about your new release, Single Dad Two Times?

I’m really excited about this new release, one of my signature MFM menage romance stories. This one is an emotional yet flirty romance about Amy, a smart, driven college graduate turned nanny, and single dads Russ and Archer, who work hard running a farm security and supply business while they raise their three little boys, Reid, Abe, and Axel.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

I fell into writing back in high school. At the time I’d scribble my creative and off the wall thoughts into the margins of my notebooks, giving more attention to my imagination than whichever teacher was standing at the front of the classroom. Years later, I had an idea for a romance novel, and I wrote and published it independently. I haven’t looked back since.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

That’s a really hard question, as I enjoy reading so much! But, if I had to pick only 5, I’d go with 1) Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series, 2) Deepak Chopra’s Seven Spiritual Laws, 3) Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, 4) Nicholas Sparks’ Safe Haven, and 5) Everything Danielle Steel has ever published 🙂

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

I’d ask Sylvia Day what keeps her inspired to create such compelling, emotionally raw characters.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

I really enjoy seeing characters come to life in my head, then weaving a story around their flaws, and seeing them grow and evolve beyond what I originally envisioned. They tend to have a mind of their own, and they surprise me sometimes!

What is a typical day like for you?

I’m not a full-time writer, so my day still mostly involves working and spending time with the day to day family routines. But my favorite days are those where I can squeeze in a couple of hours to pull away and write my new favorite characters.

What scene in Single Dad Two Times was your favorite to write?

There’s a Halloween scene in the epilogue that was a blast to write. It’s where Amy gives her new family some big, exciting news. She uses her costume to get the message across, but I won’t spoil it here. Readers can check it out when they grab Single Dad Times Two 🙂

Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?

Carpe Diem. I’m all about making the best of every day, moment by moment, and taking the good with the bad and everything in between.
