As a matter of fact, I began writing what I thought of as a “real book” – my Himiko stories. Then, while I was writing them, I got this idea for a completely fucked up meeting between a headstrong Dom and a completely innocent young guy. Then those two guys sort of took the bit between their teeth and ran, and I got the chance to explore every single kink I had. Yeah, I really liked writing A Russian Bear…
2. Do you use a pen name? If yes (or no), why?
Yes. Oh, yes. I mean, have you read what I write?? I have multiple careers in real life, and several of them depend on people NOT thinking about kinky sex when I interact with them.
3. Is there an area that is BDSM/kink-related that you haven’t written about yet that you’re interested in?
I’m thinking about trying to write something featuring the harder aspects of BDSM. I haven’t done it yet because I’ve found it difficult to walk the line between brutality and play. Apart from that, sadism is perhaps the one last taboo in a genre that’s pretty wide open otherwise. Which of course makes it all the more interesting to go there.
4. Do you write BDSM/kink erotica based on what you find interesting or sexy, or do you write more for your audience?
I don’t know about other authors, but for me, writing solely for your audience is a sure way to write boring stories. You have to be invested in your stories – and in your kink:). Having said that, I do edit; just because I’m currently into something, my reader might not want to read three scenes in a row with that toy. That doesn’t mean I’m not trying like crazy to have a Pear of Anguish fit into my current project…
