Q: Thank you so much for this interview, Tony! Can you tell us where you are from?
I’m from London, England.
Q: How did you come up with your title?
I wanted the title to be intriguing and Fem Dom seemed to fit the bill. After all, the main premise of the book is built around female domination, so it’s apt.

Q: They say you can judge a book by its cover. Can you tell us a little about your cover and who designed it?
I designed it, photographed it and chose the typeface. I’m a photographer and have worked in advertising agency creative departments for many years so I would’ve felt lazy if I’d let someone else do it!
Q: Can you tell us something about your book that would make me run out and buy it?
There’s a $100 bill stuck between the pages of every tenth copy. But seriously, it’ll take the reader into a world they probably know nothing or little about and more than likely will freak them out because it’s everywhere but we don’t see it.
Q: Are there any messages in this book that you want the reader to know about?
It shows the strange side of human nature, from willing humiliation in private to unwilling public humiliation in the corporate world.
Q: What was your most favorite chapter to write and why?
The last chapter. It was very satisfying to give every character their reveal.
Q: Why did you feel you had to write this book?
I’d been searching my imagination for a story I would enjoy reading. I’d written screenplays for years but I wanted something that could sustain a longer, more intricate storyline.
Q: Now, some fun questions – What deep dark secret would you like to share with us?
If I told you, it wouldn’t be a secret.
Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Egypt. I want to see the pyramids and get a real sense of their scale.
Q: Are you a morning person or a night person?
Morning person, though I usually stay up past midnight working on something or other. I guess I’m both!
Q: Are there any members in your family who also like to write?
My younger brother and sister are both very good writers. We get it from our mum who is extremely creative.
Q: As a child, were you a dreamer?
I’m still a dreamer!
Q: Last but not least, the magic genie has granted you one wish. What would that be?
Play a bad guy in a movie.
Q: Thank you so much for this interview! Do you have any final words?
