For years before I started writing professionally, my mind was full of scenes. Bits and pieces of dialogue. Characters and their personalities. Visions of someone’s life being played out in my head like a mini-movie.
So where do the ideas for my books come from? Aside from a deep crevice of my overactive imagination…they derive from real life experiences, witnessing an intriguing person in my travels and sometimes even from reading a story in the newspaper. It’s quite amazing how my mind works. I don’t question it…I just let it roll.
I find testing my writing abilities is best when I write about a subject or topic I know absolutely nothing about. I’ve never experienced sex with another female but I wrote an entire novella based on F/F activity. When I first wrote Rachel’s Desire, I never told a soul. Not from embarrassment but because I was unsure of my writing ability to pull off a believable girl on girl novel. Mission accomplished and I loved it so much I have a series of F/F I’m working on.
I’ve never been a partner in a menage but I have written two novellas about them. One came out in October 2011, an anthology with Romance Divine. I’m tucked perfectly between fellow erotic romance authors Jodi Olson and Elizabeth Black- who just happen to be two of my mentors and closest female friends. My second menage is still waiting to be polished, caressed and stroked before I feel comfortable enough to send it out. *Posting- menage of M/F/M needs happy home within a publisher- interested parties, please contact me*
It’s exhilarating when I can write an entire novel created solely by my imagination. I find such self-gratification in this.
Sometimes it scares me how twisted my mind can be. If you had asked me ten years ago what I’d be doing today, I doubt I’d say I’d be writing erotic romance, menage scenes and sex articles online. I wasn’t a prude by any means, I just didn’t know what my brain was telling me. Now I do and I’m happy to have such a great relationship with my mind and the extent of my creativity is overwhelming some days.
I wouldn’t change one aspect of my life, my writing career or my dreams. I may not be a NY Times Best Selling author but I am doing what I love and have a tremendous support system.
