I am a FemDom and a sadistic top. I own a male who is submissive to me and we live the lifestyle 24/7.
At what point did you decide you wanted to write BDSM/kinky-themed erotica?
I never really “decided” I wanted to write BDSM/kinky-themed erotica. The first story I ever sold to a magazine was about a male bottom and his first experience with a female top. That started me down the path of writing erotica. And, since my own erotic interests are tied up in BDSM (pun intended), more and more of my fiction found it’s way into that landscape. Even some of my “sweet” romance stories include just a taste – a skein of rope here, a paddle there. And then there’s Broken and Shattered –- hard-core kink with questionable consent.
Is there one area of BDSM that you tend to write about more? Why do you think that area creeps into your writing more than some others?
If there’s one area of BDSM that finds its way into most of my stories it’s FemDom/male submissive pairings. Even if that’s not the primary focus of the story, it’s often there. I’ve written a few stories from the female bottom/submissive point of view. I even wrote one story from the point of view of a male Dom, just to challenge myself when I realized I’d never attempted that POV before. But most of my POV characters are either male submissives/slaves/bottoms or female dominants/tops.
Do you write BDSM/kink erotica based on what you find interesting or sexy, or do you write more for your audience?
I write about what I find interesting and sexy, but I tailor it to the audience I’m writing the story for. Often, that’s not so much a different story as a different use of language and a different story presentation.
What have you written in the past that you think your BDSM/kink fans might find interesting?
I’ve had three novels, 18 poems, and two dozen short stories and collections published that were set in the BDSM landscape. It would depend on what flavor the reader/fan might prefer. I have stories that are more about S&M and sex than D/s and stories that emphasize D/s over S&M. I have written cautionary tales that are designed to revolt as much as arouse and hot sexy romances. I have written female/male, female/female, male/male, male/male/female, and female/male/male combinations. Some of my work is more likely to appeal to male readers, some to female. My fourth novel, Playing with Dolls, which will be published in early ’12, is a gender bender. What’s your pleasure? Check my website and I’m sure you’ll find something to get you wet/hard and/or make you think.
At this point in your career, do you think you’ll write more BDSM/kinky erotica?
It’s hard not to. I’ve so many kinky and erotic stories waiting to be told. But, I also have thrillers, fantasy, urban paranormal, and other genres I would like to explore.
What is your favorite flavor ice cream? And since this interview is for BDSM Book Reviews, vanilla is not an option!
Chocolate, preferably with pieces of chocolate and/or fudge and/or brownie mixed in. You know those brownie sundaes they serve with vanilla ice cream? Make mine with chocolate ice cream, extra hot fudge sauce, and keep the whip cream off my chocolate!
