Where do I begin? I’m fairly new at this—writing and kink—but I’ve always had an interest, for both. When I delved into the world of writing, I started with sensual, mild erotic, but quickly found my interests to write more erotica with a bit of kink was where my interests found a home. At my age (over 50), I didn’t know if I was venturing into an area I was too late to experience. Well, the vote is still out on that, but I have been exploring. Hubby isn’t so sure.
My writing has progressed from the paranormal world of “sex club” vampires in the Born Vampire series to my most recent release, a short for Christmas, A Gift of Love, which is a quick romp with a couple living the lifestyle, but facing struggles at Christmas and find the true meaning of their love. Nothing too out there in the kink department, but a little taste.
Here’s the “official” blurb and an excerpt, followed by a snippet from A Gift of Love from the Born Vampire Series:
Christmas Eve. Jennifer Perkins needs the perfect gift for Sir and time is running out. Tough economic times have put a drain on her bank account, but she’s determined to give her lover something special. Short on cash, she sells a treasure, plus more than she bargained. Love—more precious than diamonds and gold.
Christmas Eve. Chris Bryant needs the perfect present for his live-in submissive, Angel, and he can’t wait until tomorrow. He may have lost his job of choice, but the New Year looks promising. Tonight is the night to make a change. The gift has to be extraordinary, and the only way is to give up his prized possession. Love—more precious than objects.

Rating: 5 out of 5 Paddles
Girls Who Bite is an anthology of lesbian vampire erotica.
First of all I want to explain I am not a lesbian nor have I ever read a lesbian themed book. But let me tell you something- none of that matters at all. Girls Who Bite is one incredible read.
I was impressed how each story was so different in time and place, yet they all seamlessly belonged together. Every story could have been a stand alone novel and I found myself wishing each was was longer.
There were 15 stories and I can honestly say I loved each and every one. And while I want to write a great review for this book, I don’t want to give any of it away. Each story was a surprise that I thoroughly enjoyed, including the hot sex. When I would start a new story I’d be excited, ready to see what was next.
I will tell you my favorite story from this book was titled “The Gift of Lilith” by Myla Jackson. I have never read a story that touched my heart as much as this did. Ms Jackson has managed to write the most romantic, touching story of true love I’ve ever read. This story does have some sad elements to it, but it really got to me.
I’d highly recommend this book to everyone straight, lesbian, bi, it doesn’t matter. There are stories here that you need to read and experience.
And a final note regarding the editor Delilah Devlin. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say she is borderline genius for putting together this fantastic lineup of stories. I truly hope she will consider putting out a volume two.
