I was 11 when I started writing, so, no, I didn’t think I’d be writing even the most vanilla sex.
Do you use a pen name? If yes (or no), why?
No, but I did consider it for this series. I ended up staying with my legal name because I have a fan base established from my Taylor Twins series, and at least some of them would enjoy my new work.
Are you actively involved in BDSM? If so how do you identify yourself? Dom(me)/sub? Top/bottom? Switch?
When I have a steady boyfriend (is this used anymore or do I watch too many old television shows?) we participate in various levels of D/s and bondage. I tend to naturally gravitate towards dominance, but am willing to switch, depending on the needs of my partner. However, I’m not involved in the lifestyle publically.
At what point did you decide you wanted to write BDSM/kinky-themed erotica?
My glib answer is: I didn’t, that’s just who my characters are, as natural as Zack’s blond hair or Steve’s height. Really, I had no choice. My less I read several books—which I won’t name—that portrayed this lifestyle as abusive, i.e. rules scenes weren’t discussed, limits weren’t respected, and the sub had no way to take power back/stop the scene. It was then that I decided I wanted to write about a loving Dom and a willing submissive.
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?
Dominance and submission appears the most. The only reason I can come up with: fascination. I think it’s incredible that people (submissives) can surrender control that way. All right, I’d like to tack on an answer that might be considered odd. As much as I enjoy writing about spanking and rough sex, the aftercare, where the characters are demonstrating their love for one another after the punishment, is just as important, if not more so.
Is there an area that is BDSM/kink-related that you haven’t written about yet that you’re interested in?
Bondage. But I’m working it into Action’s sequel.
Do you write BDSM/kink erotica based on what you find interesting or sexy, or do you write more for your audience?
Both! If I don’t find it exciting, how can I expect others to? At the same time, I do consider trends.
