Why Dinkleberry? As a little girl, I followed my older brother and his friends everywhere. I clung to them like a… like a dingleberry. However, in Brooklyn the soft G is pronounced with a hard K. DearOldDad shortened it to a more acceptable nickname: Dink. My love for these men is why I cherish the names they bestowed upon me.
With my writing, I find the courtship and initial seduction of an illicit and forbidden relationship delicious fodder to explore. While I write about taboo relationships, my characters find motivation in the ideals of Love, Desire and Passion not retribution, domination or subjugation. Their end goal is a wish to develop into a happy and loving couple. I aim for my stories to be believable and plausible. I do not believe people cross the line against a strong social taboo easily. They need to coaxed, cajoled and ultimately enticed to do so.
With many of my stories, I try to develop an explanation as to why the narrator is sharing their story instead of it seeming as if they are bragging of their conquest.
Readers often express surprise that as a female, I generally choose to write from the male's point of view. When I write from the male's perspective, I enjoy the challenge of having to climb into my narrator’s mind. I get to describe what his eye's sees, including the beauty of the female character; how his mind thinks; and what his heart feels. It separates me from my character and allows his personality to grow, develop, and show. When successful, the story is told from his voice and not my own.
This allows my characters to be not only distinct from myself but also from the other males in my other stories. It also allows my female characters to be diverse and distinct from each other yet still celebrate their individual beauty. Since, Beauty is in the Eye of The Beholder.
I live in New York, with my girlfriend and our three cats. Contact me at Dinkqueen@gmail.com. I hope you will take the time to enjoy all of my stories.
