Biography

I'm a working writer in far western Kentucky, living with my partner and three crazy little dogs. I've worked in fiber and textiles, as well as in all types of printed media. My characters demand to get out of my head and into print, and they're so much fun that I have to share them. My work falls somewhere between erotic romance and erotica. My partner read a popular erotic romance and he said, "Honey, you can write better than this!" That was the beginning of my journey . . .

I have written marketing materials for business, founding documents for non-profits, served as editor and columnist for a tabloid, and written for academic publications. Often other people took credit for my work, and I decided that was just ridiculous. Now I enjoy writing my own work and offering it to others who can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Smashwords Interview

What sets your work apart from that of other authors in your genres?
I think the biggest difference is that most of my characters are over 40. I got very tired of reading books in which the protagonists were sexual experts – and only about 25 years old! I know that’s much “prettier,” but it’s not very realistic. My characters are mature people, men who know how to please a woman and women who know how to turn a man on and keep him turned on.

And for the record, men have read my books and said that they have "something for everyone." They have more than red-hot sex - they have drama, suspense, and a crime element. And they're fun!

Other than that, when I started in these genres, I heard three main complaints:
1) “What happened to Jack? I really liked him, but I’m reading the third book and he’s nowhere to be found.” My characters don’t do that – they hang around. Most of them are friends and relatives to each other, so it’s not too hard to accomplish that.
2) “The book was so poorly written (punctuation, grammar, spelling, etc.) that I couldn’t finish it.” I was a creative writing/literature major – I try to put out quality work, and I hope it shows.
3) “I paid $3.99 (or sometimes more) for this book and it only took me 30 minutes to read it. Where’s the rest of the book?” If I write a novella, I’ll tell you it’s a novella, and it’ll only be $0.99 – otherwise, it’s a novel and it’s going to be hours of entertainment for you. I don’t shortchange my readers – ever.

I hope readers will take the time to check them out - there won't be any disappointment.
When did you first start writing?
I can't remember a time when I didn't. It's just as natural to me as breathing, and it comes so easily to me that it seems a shame not to!
