When you first started writing, did you have any idea you’d be writing BDSM/kinky books? Do you write in any other genre?
I’ve been a writer since I learned how to form complete sentences. Honestly, the writing bug was always inside me; it’s my favorite form of communication and just came naturally to me. I contribute to a few blogs and forums, and some of my non-erotic articles have made it to the print-world.
Erotica, though, is where my writing took off. It isn’t the easiest genre to write in, but it’s definitely been the most fulfilling. My first full length novel was Under Order, a BDSM erotic story. Since publishing that first book, I never looked back. I still do some non-erotic writing in my free time, but my passion is edgy erotica.
Are you actively involved in BDSM? If so how do you identify yourself? Dom(me)/sub? Top/bottom? Switch?
I’m sexually submissive and a pretty solid masochist. I love being spanked and I love rough, dirty sex.
I identify as a bedroom-submissive, but with the right guy I tend to be naturally submissive outside of the bedroom, too.
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?
Domestic discipline and spanking stories come the most naturally for me. I also created Rock Creek, which is a large BDSM intentional community. Ideally, I’ll alternate between writing DD novellas and BDSM novels set in Rock Creek.
While I enjoy writing DD, I think my BDSM novels are more complex and a bit more fun to write and labor over.
Do you write BDSM/kink erotica based on what you find interesting or sexy, or do you write more for your audience?
There’s a little bit of both. My first few books were definitely written for me, not my audience. But I’m human, and I read feedback, and I do think about that as I work on new projects.
I find that my best writing happens when I’m writing something that turns me on. Incidentally, writing stuff that turns me on is also the most fun!
Do you do any “hands-on” research when you’re writing BDSM/kinky themed erotica?
Ha! Yes! There was one scene I wrote where the Master had his slave do a series of wall-sits. Wall-sits, if you don’t know, are where you brace your back against the wall and ‘sit’, like there’s a fake chair. Originally I had him require a three-minute wall-sit.
My boyfriend at the time read that, looked at me, and asked, “Sade, have you ever done this for three minutes?”
I tried it and failed miserably.
Other instances in my writing have me standing up to make sure certain positions are possible, and testing certain implements to make sure a spanking I’m writing about has the correct amount of pain. My book research, I have to admit, is pretty fun.
At this point in your career, do you think you’ll write more BDSM/kinky erotica?
At this point in my career, I honestly can’t imagine doing anything else. Writing kink is challenging, fun, and engaging. I absolutely love the work, and I love communicating with readers and other authors. The BDSM/erotica community is absolutely amazing!
If someone new to your work is going to start with a story, which one would you recommend they read first?
For those primarily interested in BDSM erotica, start with Under Order.

Chloe is a pretty brunette with a lot of spunk and not a whole lot of sense. After she experiences yet another failed relationship with a good guy, her long-time friend Todd enters the picture with romantic interest.
But being with Todd carries some weight. Instead of dealing with her behavior passive aggressively, like the other guys, Todd wants to spank her when she screws up. Can she submit to a guy who won’t put up with her when she’s bad?
