When you first started writing, did you have any idea you’d be writing BDSM/kinky books?
When I first started writing, I was six years old, so, no, I had no idea Id be writing BDSM/kinky books. Even as late as ten years ago, I had no idea I’d be writing BDSM/kinky books. Then I discovered Lora Leigh. And from there, Maya Banks, Cherise Sinclair, Leah Brooke, Shayla Black—the list goes on and on. And now I can’t see myself writing anything but BDSM/kinky books.
At what point did you decide you wanted to write BDSM/kinky-themed erotica?
At the point five years ago where I thought I was writing a perfectly vanilla medieval historical romance and all of a sudden I realized that I had introduced the hero’s best friend into his relationship with the heroine and the three of them were having scorching sex together! Imagine my shock! However I rallied and now I can’t picture myself writing about anything else. In fact, I plan to go back and convert the very vanilla Gothic novel I wrote years ago to include elements of BDSM. A pretty tall order, since, Gothic novels, by their very description, didn’t even include SEX!
At this point in your career, do you think you’ll write more BDSM/kinky erotica?
I’m already writing more BDSM/kinky erotica. I am nearly finished with the sequel to my first book, and hope to get it sent out to the publisher by the end of May. I’ll be sure to let you know the publication date, so you can pass it on to your readers.
Do you write BDSM/kink erotica based on what you find interesting or sexy, or do you write more for your audience?
I write for myself, since I am my audience. However, I realize that there are a lot of people out there who love reading the same kinds of things I do, so I figure if I find it intriguing or sexy, lots of others will, too.
What might be something of interest to your fans that you don’t think they know about you?
That I am an escapee of right-wing Christian fundamentalism. Just couldn’t take the “it’s my sacred Christian duty to point out to everyone I meet (including strangers in the street) that if they don’t think like I think and do like I do, they’re sinful, worthless people and they’re going to hell.” Never could understand what gave anyone the right to go to another country and tell the people who live there that their entire belief system and way of life is all wrong and they have to convert to my belief system and way of life in order to be worthy of God’s attention. Still don’t understand it.
What’s the most surprising piece of feedback you’ve ever received from a fan of your writing?
Actually, the most surprising piece of feedback I’ve ever received was from someone who was not a fan of my book. Even though the words menage and BDSM Collection appeared on the front cover and in the back cover blurb, this person obviously had never heard of the concepts. She was shocked—shocked—at the disgusting things the abusive hero did to the doormat heroine. And although she professed to hate it, she did mention enough scenes that occur well beyond the half-way point in the book to let me know that, in spite of her “revulsion”, she actually kept reading it. I’m still nonplussed.
Do you do any “hands-on” research when you’re writing BDSM/kinky themed erotica?
Since I’ve been divorced longer than I’ve been writing erotica, you can probably guess the answer to that one. I would love to find a truly safe place to do “hands-on” research with a partner who is at least as old and out of shape as I am—which is to say, really to the first and totally to the second. If you know anyone who fits that description…

She has never forgotten Jesse. He’s been the object of all her sexual fantasies since she was fifteen, as well as the star of nightly dreams that have become increasingly erotic over the years. So when he suddenly reappears in her life, she is torn. Can she trust him not to hurt her, or will he once again break her heart?

When he also introduces her to his best friend, Adam Sinclair, Sarah faces a daunting future of sexual submission to two powerful alpha males.
But Sarah faces an even bigger challenge. Someone is stalking her. Is it the old enemy who’s just been released from prison? Or is it someone else from her past who is determined to destroy any chance she has at happiness? Can Adam’s and Jesse’s love protect her? Or will her world explode in a cataclysm of betrayal and violence that will destroy them all?
