Grinelda Markowitz

Biography

Grinelda Markowitz writes erotic fiction across multiple genres. She resides in a galaxy far, far away with a trusty pen, a never-ending supply of paper and a fertile imagination. The Moon-Kissed Chi, her first e-published book in the genre of erotic fiction, is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

For a bit of recreation I enjoy clay work and attending symphony. I meet up with friends when we are able to sync our schedules and I maintain a fairly active virtual life. Eating out is a passion for me. I’m always glad to find a new restaurant which warrants a return visit.

I used to work at a book store part time. How cliché, huh? And, I also maintain a full-time bread-and-butter job as well. I find that embarking on a serious approach to writing rather than the hit-and-miss efforts of previous years has provided a welcome focal point in my daily existence.

Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
My all-time favorite writer is Octavia Butler. She wrote to an intelligent audience. I was deeply moved by her untimely death. Where many folks I’m acquainted with were repulsed by, “Blood Child,” I have it on the shelf of my virtual bookcase, marked genius (the shelf). It sits alone there in solitaire. There are a number of books by other writers on the shelf below marked, “favorites.”

Harlan Ellison ranks right up there with Octavia, however, my acquaintance with his work comes much earlier in life. Other authors I "grok" with are Herbert (Sr.), Tolkien, Anne Perry, Louise Penny, Doyle and a host of others.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The need to generate the almighty dollar.

Smashwords book reviews by Grinelda Markowitz

  • The King's Pleasure on Jan. 07, 2012

    The story line and character development are very nicely done. I think the concepts of social hierarchies and social denial are worked nicely into the story line. The situations and characters are believable even within this fictional setting. The sexual content fits well into the overall theme of the story as well as the concepts contributing to the story line. The sex doesn't seem to be an afterthought used to fill the requirements for an erotic context. A good read and I look forward to reading more from this author.
  • Triple-Forged Coupling on Feb. 03, 2012

    Piston-pumped and well-lubed with turbo-powered orgasms; Triple-Forged Coupling by Anthony Beal is extremely entertaining with high-performance sex and an unmarked turn in the road. Beal has a talent for steamy word play and a penchant for titillation. This is a wonderful read and well worth the purchase.
  • Poker Night Threesome on Feb. 11, 2012

    Naughty, naughty, naughty and very entertaining. Jacklyn and her bff, Lacy, collude together to give Ben what he wants most for his birthday. Leading up to the night of Ben’s birthday, Jacklyn has become frustrated with the state of her marriage. Frustrated sexually and emotionally with a marriage that seems to be heading for the waste bin, Jacklyn decides to deal with her misgivings about her sexuality and body image so she can give her husband, Ben, something he hints about frequently. Having abandoned her and their bed when it comes to sex, he only seeks sexual gratification and fulfillment in the porn stories and dirty pictures which hold his attention and interest on his computer. Jacklyn just knows if her idea doesn’t work there’s no helping the marriage. Everything seems to be on track when she gets Lacy to agree to be the third in a threesome. But will this really work? Can her marriage really be saved? Will she be able to face her misgivings successfully? There’s only one way to find out. Get in on the poker game for which the stakes aren’t the kitty but rather something altogether different. A great read, well written, and as hot as the action is intense.
  • Watching Laura: A Collection of Firsts (Erotica / Masturbation / Oral Sex / Lesbian / Bisexual / Threesomes / Dildo / Couple Play) on March 16, 2012

    Oh so steamy and delicious! Christopher Cooper's collection of short and succulent stories will keep you turning the pages through the very last encounter. Wonderfully written and extremely entertaining you'll find the rising temperature is your own as you move from story to story, each being hotter than the last. Watching Laura is a must read.
  • The Spell You Cast on April 08, 2012

    This collaboration between Rushmore Judd and Erin O'Riordan come complete with a clever story line and an entertaining situation. The reader is introduced to women with a goal with every intention of accomplishing it. The fun is erotically crafted and the sex is hot. You can't go wrong with this read.
  • "What A Dream!" on May 03, 2012

    “What A Dream,” is a playful look back into the way things were; nostalgia in a very imaginative, evocative, and fun-filled presentation. The authors facilitate our regression to a place and time that was very different from out own yet the people still had the need for fun in their lives. Both informative and heart-warming the story provides a day of abandon through the eyes of two young strangers to the period and time in which the story is set. An enjoyable read and I look forward to reading more stories by Elizabeth & William Hicks.
  • WereWolf Howling on Aug. 09, 2012

    So what do you do when your husband is cheating on you and you’re left in the woods all on your own on a weekend night? Many weekend nights? You take up with the first werewolf that comes knocking on your door. That’s probably not how Arietta planned it. The sex could be so good between her and her husband, when they had sex. Yet, there was something still missing. This story of marital angst and paranormal puntang is a good read when you’re looking for that something a little bit different.
