I became addicted to words at an early age. I began reading when I was four. I wrote my first story at five years old and my first poem at seven. Since then, I've written plays, tutorials, marketing brochures, software specifications, self-help books, press releases, a five-hundred page dissertation, and of course, erotica and erotic romance.
My lifelong interests in sex and the written word became serendipitously entwined more than a decade ago when I read my first Black Lace book by Portia da Costa. Her work inspired me to take my fantasies out of the closet (and the private email files) and expose them to the world. The rest, as they say, is history (although granted, no more than a minor footnote!)
My work tends to be explicit, but I'm more interested in the emotional than the physical aspects of sexuality. I'm fascinated by the role of imagination and fantasy in stimulating desire. Much of my work explores themes in the area of dominance and submission. However, I write in a wide range of sub-genres including gay and lesbian erotica, erotic suspense, science fiction and paranormal.
In addition to writing, I have edited a number of multi-author collections. Currently I'm the editor for the single author charity erotica series COMING TOGETHER PRESENTS (http://www.eroticanthology.com). Each author contributes his or her work for free after designating a charity to receive all proceeds. In the last year we have published volumes benefiting Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN). Our next release will support multiple sclerosis research.
I've always loved traveling; my husband seduced me in a Burmese restaurant by telling me tales of his foreign escapades. Since then I have visited every continent except Australia, although I still have a long travel wish list. Currently I live with him and our two exceptional felines in Southeast Asia, where I dream about new adventures.
