A few random things about me...
Um, let's see... when I was eight, I had a pet turkey. I used to take it with me on my very short lived paper route. Needless to say, I was terrible at delivering the paper. No one wanted a "Dollar Saver" with turkey poop on the front page. Apparently that is where the best coupons are.
Books... well, "Treasure Island" is a fantastic pirate tale. I love just about anything by Roald Dahl, and of course... Jane Austen (I have yet to find a sappy female who doesn't).
I love to write... these days sneaking away just to use the bathroom is hard enough. Finding a quiet moment alone with my laptop is impossible. I've developed a talent for making airplane noises out the side of my mout ... read more

Follow me on Twitter at VMooreErotica
I'm a hot twenty-something who writes indie erotica about hot twenty-somethings. I like provocative, sexy stories with substance; I think erotica is most exciting when I can know the characters, when there is tension and rising action, when I am really drawn into the story--not just watching anonymous bodies going through the usual motions. I like stories that are emotional as well as physical, meant to amuse and entertain as well as arouse.
I focus on the sexual world of urban, hipster, punk, and alt-girl/guy characters because it's what I know best. I think labeling a certain story as "for men" or "for women" is silly; my stories feature relations between multiple genders and from multiple points of view.
