Erotica Writer / Author
I write smut for a living. I write the stuff that, if done properly, will make the reader need some alone time to take care of urges.
But it's not entirely who I am. I am a wife, a mother, a homeschooling parent, and a leader in my community. I am a blogger, and a from-scratch cook. I am a friend, I am someone that people call when they are confused or have problems. I am someone that is always available to watch a friend's kids at the last minute.
But that's not it, either. I'm a liberal. I'm staunchly pro gay-rights, I'm an atheist, and I'm feminist. I'm strong, I'm a survivor, and I'm intelligent.
But that's not all there is to me. I was an English major with a focus on creative writing in college. I read to escape and I write to process. My husband knows whether I'm depressed, overwhelmed, or just chilling based on the author I'm reading. I have great conversations about Kafka and Bronte and Hardy with my fellow lit-geek girlfriends.
When I go into my office to write, I set aside my real name and my real issues. I put on my headphones, put on my pouty lips, and become whoever I want to be. Without my secret identity, I could never reveal this super awesome part of myself.
I write the stories that turn you on. What's your superpower?
