Everything! As an erotica writer, I want to cause as much vasocongestion through arousal (in other words, blood running down to the genitals when people get excited) as possible. And, I'll admit, it's also a feeling of power to create that in people.
What are you working on next?
My main thing I'm going to be writing is violent femdom erotica, particularly girls/women beating up and beating down boys/men, with lots of ballbusting. That said, I intend to publish other types of erotica, a romance novel and political and socio-cultural blogs.

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Sex and violence! (watching and doing)
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
(see previous answer)
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. It was about a giant girl stomping boys to death as they looked up her schoolgirl skirt. I was in first grade! Maybe I should go back to it!
What is your writing process?
I write my demons dictate. Then, my demons and I fuck!
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
"Little Red Riding Hood." But, in my mind, she took the woodsman's ax and castrated the big, bad wolf!
How do you approach cover design?
I design my own covers and try to do things that are different from other covers.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Oakland, California, a tense, violent, chaotic place where gang beatdowns and shootings were everyday occurrences, I would hear a gunshot in the night and just roll over and go back to sleep and where sex, money, drugs and violence were all currencies. I kept a switchblade in my boot, a handgun in my purse and another under my pillow.
Who are your favorite porn stars?
Skin Diamond and Misty Knight because they both remind me of me, so it's more fun for me to watch them do naughty stuff!
Who are your favorite superheroes?
Batman, Captain America, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Rogue, Storm, Wasp, Wolverine and Thor. I have a definite nerdy side! The one I'd most want to fuck me is Captain America. He's an art student in the body of a weight lifter!
What TV shows do you watch?
"Big Bang Theory," "Daredevil," "Jessica Jones," "Supergirl" and "Empire."
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The feeling of achievement after I finished writing something.
