I write every type of erotica one can imagine; from the softest love story to the most bizarre tales of lust. I get my story ideas from my own hedonistic past and wild imagination. For me, no subject (within reason) is too taboo. I feel we all have our own personal kinks and I try to write to accommodate as many as possible. I am fairly open-minded when it comes to sex and I believe that comes through in my writing.

I remember when my youngest son was about 5 years old, we would make up stories together. One of us would start with a sentence, the other would make up the next sentence, and so on. We never knew where the story would take us and his laughter at the crazy ideas we came up with was always contagious. It is a magical experience to see a child's face light up when their imagination comes to life and takes flight.
It was this experience that sparked my interest in creating stories. I hope you enjoy sharing them with your young one's as much as I enjoy writing them.
