In my mid 30's, I've decided to be more open in expressing myself. Before this awakening I may have stayed away from graphic stories, but now, what the hell. It feels better already!
What are you working on next?
I'm intrigued by the sexual adventures of Squire Tom Jones, Henry Fielding's character, played by Albert Finney in the 1963 comedy adventure. The discrepancy between prudish morality and sexual abandon seems ripe for exploration. In the classical novel, the women seem to have a submissive role, but adding creative promiscuity to the classical role elevates women's need and desires to a new level. This approach seems like a good fit with my publication on fantasies The Sexual Fantasies of a Good Girl
Who are your favorite authors?
The Anne Rice series on Beauty and her challenges (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sleeping_Beauty_Trilogy) came well before the current Fifty Shades trend and was more deeply written. Of course the Pauline Réage series started me down the road of fantasy and living them out. Fiction short stories by John Dufresne are an excellent model for condensing complex emotions into memorable writing.
Come along with me as I share my fantasies. They're pretty graphic, but not raunchy and some are romance, some a stretch. I've lived some of them and may get to the rest sooner than I think. I'm always looking for a challenge.
I agree with other reviewers. It is an enjoyable romp. I did not do any fact checking to determine if his historical events are accurate, but from previous reviewers and his statements, I assume they are pretty close. I as expecting more of a pirate story, but pirates are somewhat involved, but Patrick spends much more time on land ir in the Red Lady!
