When you first started writing, did you have any idea you’d be writing BDSM/kinky books? Do you write in any other genre?

Years ago before the e-publishing age when I wrote kinky letters to my SO, I really hadn’t planned on writing BDSM/kinky books. It wasn’t until March 2009 after reading books from so many fabulous authors that I decided to seriously sit down and write a story in this genre.

Are you actively involved in BDSM? If so how do you identify yourself? Dom(me)/sub? Top/bottom? Switch?

I’m definitely actively involved in BDSM with my SO and have been for many years. Although I must admit I’ve never ventured out into the BDSM world. We are just a very kinky couple so we have years of experience. I’m more of a submissive, but every now and again can be dominant with my man. I call him my wolf. ; )

At what point did you decide you wanted to write BDSM/kinky-themed erotica?

I don’t think it was a decision, it just started trickling out of me when I submitted Her Dark Desires, my first published book in 2009 to Sugar and Spice Press. I wanted to write about a dark, daring couple having very explicit sex. Dark vampire sex is the best!!

Do you write BDSM/kink erotica based on what you find interesting or sexy, or do you write more for your audience?

I generally write what I find interesting and sexy. Apparently my audience enjoys my sex scenes, so I’ll keep writing what I love. However, I’m always open to suggestions!

When you’re writing BDSM/kinky-related erotica, is there a particular movie or music that you might watch or listen to that helps you get in that frame of mind?

Mmmm, when I’m writing I love listening to heavy metal. I’ve always been a metalhead and have always loved men with long hair. I’m thinking black leather, silver studs, whips, chains and big black Harley Davidson motorcycles giving me the thrill of my life. LOL Yeah, you can have an orgasm just by riding on the back of a big Harley! LOL

If someone new to your work is going to start with a story, which one would you recommend they read first?

I’d recommend reading my first dragon shifter story, Bondage and Darkness.

Who is your favorite BDSM/kinky author? Movie?

My favorite BDSM/kinky author is Bridget Midway! Have you read Corporate Seduction? So freaking hot!! I have many, but one of my favorite movies is Killing Me Softly with Heather Graham and Joseph Fiennes. Oh yes, very titillating.

What is your favorite flavor ice cream? And since this interview is for BDSM Book Reviews, vanilla is not an option!

No, I don’t like plain vanilla! Cookies and Cream is my favorite, and I must always top it off with melted peanut butter and fudge! Mmmm. That’s also good for some nice erotic play.

    Hi everyone!

    Dana, I plan to do a follow up of that free read of Bargaining with the Reaper, it will definitely be a novella. Bane and Willa Mae will be getting another story and it will be a little more romantic. I enjoyed writing about those two and feel the need to expand on them. It will be a few months before another Death Angel Series is pubbed.

    Patricia, glad you enjoyed the interview and I hope you do enjoy the books. Good luck

    HellKat, don’t forget the peanut butter! LOL

    Black Hippie Chick, hope you enjoy ; )

    Karen H, thank you!

    Thanks for stopping by and good luck!!
