J. D. Burrows
Conflicting Hearts is my story of childhood sexual abuse set in a fictional world. With the recent influx of erotica on the market that focuses upon BDSM, I felt compelled to address that issue from a different perspective. Not every woman wishes to be bound; some of us desire to be freed from the propensity toward depression, self-hatred, promiscuity, masochist fantasies, and other issues.
Since I was a young child, I've wanted to write. The drive has always been there in my soul, but the circumstances have not. Due to my background I made poor choices in relationships, entertained a low-self esteem, surrounded by fear of rejection. When I finally found the courage, I began writing four years ago, but ended up doing so far too late in life.
My usual genre is historical fiction and historical romance. I have four other fiction novels.
I live in the Portland, Oregon area with a pesky cat who refuses to let me sleep in, enjoy traveling to England, researching my English ancestry, and creating stories on my computer. Unfortunately, I never found the Ian Richards of my life. The picture on the left was taken in 1955 on Easter Sunday, and she is the child within.
