Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
Honestly? I was tired of doing things the way others thought they should be done. I also knew that if I got rejected by publishers I’d probably give up on writing for the rest of my life, and I didn’t want that. I wanted to start publishing so that I was motivated to keep going, because continuing to write is the only way to get better at it.
Why do you write romance and erotica?
I started writing romance because, to a large extent, human sexuality is still repressed in U.S. culture, and women’s sexuality in particular. “Slut”-shaming still abounds, a woman’s right to choose what to do with her body is still a matter of national debate, and the vast majority of romance novels still portray women’s sexual role as a passive one. I think there’s great opportunity in writing romance and erotica to challenge these cultural norms and help facilitate a shift towards equality and sex positivity.
