Stanfield Major was born in Normal, Illinois, but soon left normal behind. Raised in nearby Eureka, where Ronald Reagan went to college, he observed the tumult of the late 1960s and early 1970s from the somewhat detached perspective of the middle west.
At the age of fourteen, stung by the same bug as both his parents, he began scribbling. He started with short unrhymed poems. And then he tried fiction, novels he didn’t finish. About a year later he began writing song lyrics. His creative life has consisted of a restless shifting from one to another of these forms of expression. Although, until recently, songwriting has been his main focus.
He’s spent most of his life trying to find his place in this world. Hammering on doors that didn’t open. Wandering shabby alleyways in the twilight haze. Living the experiences that now inform his work.
Since the mysteries of sexuality have always galvanized his creative imagination he began, several years ago, posting to Literotica, an online forum for writers of erotica. Over the next two years he wrote enough erotic short stories to fill a book. That was how Balls Of Cobalt Blue, and, later, Call Me Pandora, came to be.
Stanfield now resides in Kingman, Arizona and is working on another book of erotic short stories, a couple of romance novels, and plans to produce several more CDs in which songs using his lyrics are showcased. The first CD, Crossroads And Highways, was released in 2008 by the band 7th And Beale.
Many of my stories, “Win/Win Situation”, “Royally Fucked”, “Motorcycle Mama”, “Turnabout”, and “Ocean Interlude”, for instance, were written in response to a specific woman asking me to write a story based on her particular fantasies. In the same way that being touched by someone else is more exciting than touching oneself, seeing your fantasies filtered through the mind of another can add to the thrill.
And for me, as a writer, the delight of challenging myself to inhabit another’s skin and see the world through her eyes is profoundly satisfying.
Someone reviewing “Royally Fucked” said, “Definitely written by a woman”. That’s the highest compliment. That’s what I’m aiming for.
If you have a fantasy you’d like to see filtered through my erotic mind please contact me through my blog “From My Erotic Mind” (see link on this page) and if your fantasy inspires me the world might see the result (your part will be acknowledged only if you wish it to be).
Whether you have a fantasy or not I’d love to hear from you.
