Interview with Juliet Devina Hunter

Why did you start writing erotica?
I had to find something to keep me warm during the long, cold Canadian winters!

Mostly, though, I just really, really love sex, and I've got a bit of a wild imagination. What better way to explore fantasies––especially the taboo ones that I might never try personally––than by writing about them and sharing them with you?
How much of your writing is based on your personal experience?
Let's just say I've never had sex on a gondola.
What is your writing process?
Some writers say that stories start with words or images, but for me, every story starts with a big idea. It might be a concept, it might be a character, it might be a particular sex act, but it's always a big idea.

"Trial by Gondola," for example, came from a concept. I was challenged to write a story in which two people had sex on a mountain gondola, so I wrote it. What's more, I enjoyed writing it so much that I kept writing erotica. In fact, "Trial by Gondola" is the story that got me thinking about publishing in the first place.
What are you working on next?
I'm currently working on expanding the Learning to Obey series, which starts with a free short story called "Trial by Gondola."
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Researching, if you know what I mean...
