Let the celebration begin! Amorous Woman is now available as an ebook, with a gorgeous cover (if you're interested in having this beautiful book to caress, contact my publisher about POD). This novel is my personal favorite of all my work (to date), and the most demanding and rewarding to write. If you like the free sample, dive in and take your own trip to a fascinating, exotic and erotic land. I'm also very excited to announce that a collection of six of my best short stories, "The Mammoth Book of Erotica Presents the Best of Donna George Storey: Picture Perfect" is now available on Kindle. Exhibitionism, cross-dressing, phone sex, Japanese erotic prints, there's lots to please everyone. All of the stories appeared in the Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica series.
And now, for my official bio:
I've always wanted to write fiction, but didn't have the time or the courage until my oldest son was born and I decided to leave my job teaching Japanese literature to be a full-time parent in 1997. From the start, I was drawn to erotic themes and although I resisted at first--erotica seemed too scandalous for a shy bookworm like me--I soon realized I had to write what I loved.
Fortunately, over the years the love has translated into over 150 publications in various venues, from literary magazines like Prairie Schooner and The Gettysburg Review to best-of erotica anthologies like Best American Erotica and The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica.
I'm a Princeton graduate with a Ph.D. in Japanese literature, which I mention not to impress--who really cares?--but to suggest how far I've wandered from the path of propriety. But I like to think my new aspirations are as lofty. I truly believe we need more writers willing to acknowledge that the sexual urge and the erotic imagination are as worthy of a complex literary treatment as anger, jealousy, ambition or love in its PG-rated form. That's what I try to do in my work, one story at a time.
My other interests include delicious food, hearty wine, reading about history and cultural studies, and long walks at dawn. My author photographs were taken by the wonderfully talented Laura Boyd (www.ownyoursexy.com) who can capture the inner beauty in everyone, especially if you're wearing a gorgeous custom-made corset. Thanks for stopping by.
