There's always some thrilling kink churning in my head. My next major undertaking will be a series with Norse Mythology and lustful gods. Such a thrill
What is your writing process?
That depends on how complex the story is. Sometimes the story's so simple is a matter of putting in the time to write. Other times things take extensive planning and lots of spiral bound notebooks to work through.
How do you approach cover design?
Cover design skills are something I've been slowly improving for almost two years now. Long before I committed to my first published book I would go through the whole process and get people's feedback. It took a long time before I learned enough to produce a decent piece. I'm still learning. One time I did go to a professional to help me when I had serious issues and let's just say I'll never do that again.
What do you read for pleasure?
It depends on what mood I'm in, honestly. Of course I read Romance and Erotica. I also enjoy literary fiction, sci-fi, crime and mystery, suspense, horror, dramas, poetry, epics, screenplays. Nothing is off the table.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Control by Charlotte Stein is my favorite Romance-Erotica story. Gravity's Rainbow by Pynchon is wonderful. It has one of the best first lines ever written. I've read Paradise Lost so many times my pages keep falling out of my paperback. And Twilight. Yep. I confess.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Sometimes I stumble across an author and just drown in all of their books until the money runs out. Other times I ping pong around looking to stumble across a hidden gem.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Wow. That's a good question. One of the earliest stories I remember reading was Sybil - I was 11, my mother gave it to me and told me it was a good book. I still don't understand her thought process about that. But I did read it and no doubt it influenced me considerably.
Describe your desk
Hehe. My desk? It's made of birch, stained mahogany. I constructed it a few years back and designed it to fit just right in the corner of my living room.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I hail from the East Coast of the USA, around the Chesapeake Bay area. I'd say it helped bolster my interest in politics and history what with being close to the US Capital and all. It also made me especially fond of the woods and nature. Everywhere you look there are trees and shrubs. Currently, I living a wood-ish area where trees don't grow near as thick or tall. Quite a bit of grass all around. Sort of drab.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashword's policy of being respectful of author's creative content. By not being limited and restrained I've seen quite a bit of success at Smashwords alone.

Dinner . . . with company. How humble, wholesome, and simple. Well, perhaps that rings true for most people but for Adelaide's family nothing could be further from reality. At 233 Willowbie Lane, everything is dipped in the melt of kink like cherries and toffee in milk chocolate. Care for a lick?
Like a cork popped from a bottle: passion is set free and lust bubbles over. How could something that feels so good be so wrong? Adelaide's journey deeper into the tangle of her family's sordid affair only grows seedier and needier.
