Writer, philosopher, spoken word artist, I’m a synergist who combines ideas from diverse fields to explore new paradigms. I wrote the Darren Braid series to try to bridge the gap between erotica and reality. Erotica always seems to portray an idealized version of dominance and submission, where dominants are virtually all-knowing, and submissives are all happy and fulfilled. News programs and crime dramas seem to do the opposite, only showing women and children being abused and exploited. But in real life, the positive and negative exist together. People enjoy healthy D/s relationships because they learn from other people's bad experiences. I'd never seen a story that brought both sides together, and I thought it would be interesting to explore the coexistence of positive and negative relationships.

When I wrote my for "Redemption of the Hypnotist" I remarked that I would love to read another book by the author. He delivered in spades. In terms of heat, I would rate it as less intense than the first, but in a good way.
Let's be honest, if you're reading this, you're reading for the hypnotic scenes and when one appears, it's insanely hot. It isn't the main focus of the story though, The plot only loosely depends on the protagonist's skills. It's a good plot and heart-wrenching at times. The characters come alive and almost jump off the page.
It was a subplot that registered deeply with me, It screamed 'This is what I want from a relationship, for the exact reasons given.' I almost felt like I should be taking notes, I will likely reread those chapters dealing with that relationship again and again.
If you liked 'Redemption for the Hypnotist, you'll like this. While hypnosis is very much an accessory to the plot, rather than essential, it is a well crafted story. Kudos to the author.
