Interview with Polecat

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in several places, Europe, Africa. It gave me a wide perspective on the world, as well as the ability to speak and think in different languages. It opened up horizons so that my books do not have to be limited to a small area of the world and can, if I need to, span continents.
When did you first start writing?
As a 7 or 8 year old. Writing as erotica, probably in my 40s.
What's the story behind your latest book?
There are several books on my laptop at different stages of completion. Painsluts.com is the story of a sub who, due to financial hardship, begins to sub for money and the concept gets parlayed into a major internet business. Amy's story (title to be determined) chronicles Amy's descent into the deeper layers of masochism. Other books are at this time no more than isolated scenes.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The stories I write, which are, in essence, the stories I would like to read, seem to have no one publishing them. I began to write them as a hobby, then I published a couple, at a free site. It was an easy jump from there to publication.
Will there be a sequel to "The Twelve Labors of Andromeda?"
It was meant as a stand alone, single book. The Andromeda character however was so strong that I did start a sequel but it never got beyond two or three, hastily scribbled chapters.

Will Andromeda come back? Maybe, I don't know yet.
What do your fans mean to you?
One day I checked my sales at amazon.de and found, to my astonishment that someone bought all my books, on the same day!
Now, that's a fan.
My fans may be the reason why my writing has slowed down. Now that I have a following, there is always a fear of disappointing them. That wasn't there before.
Who are your favorite authors?
In Erotica it must be first Dominique Aury (a.k.a) Pauline Reage, of Story of O fame. I read that book in Spanish, English and in the original French.
Second place goes to Catherine Robbe-Grillet, a.k.a.Jean de Berg (The Image)
In conventional fiction, I love the Patrick O'Brien Master and Commander series.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Vanilla work, Fishing, skiing, playing golf.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Mostly browsing on Amazon and Smashwords.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it would be "What if she wanted."
It was published by A1adultebooks where it is still available. I plan to bring it, and most of the others into Smashwords.
I might rewrite it though, as I think there is room for improvement.
What is your writing process?
I wish I knew.
