I started writing three years ago. My son’s degree is in English. He wanted to write and complained he didn’t have good software. I got him a Scrivener license, and he didn’t even install the software! It’s strange, but that was the trigger. I can’t stop now. My first character, Alex, is a hermaphrodite who evolves. The series is ongoing with seven novellas so far. The second major character is Cilla. She’s the cosmetologist extraordinhair, and some of her clients aren’t even human. I’m currently exploring the exploits of a divorced man. Why erotica? It’s what the characters want.
What inspires you to write in your genre?
The characters. I quickly gave up on plots and outlines. The characters kept taking the story in different directions. I think that’s one source of writers’ block—the conflict between the outline you the author want and the characters rebelling against it. I write in multiple genres under different pen names. The characters decide if it’s erotica or…I’m just the conduit. I write quickly as I want to find out how the story will end.
What makes you different?
There is always a story. Some of the characters live in this world or an alternate, and others in a paranormal fantasy landscape. I document what they want to do, and some of it is pretty hot…even I’m amazed at what they do.
