Rod Hardstick was born and grew up in a rural New Zealand farming scene.
He is a professional in the Electronic Engineering field; his work takes him all over the world.
Exposure to various countries and cultures has provided a strong motivation and an influence for most of his creative work.
This inspiration most likely presented ideas not only for his genre of intimate erotic romantic short-stories, but other creative
literally works (presently unpublished), and musical material.
When not travelling, Rod resides in New Zealand with his wife Patsy.
Briefly describe what your short-story books are about?
These adult-only erotic bed-time romance short-stories are fictional experiences between couples that find themselves in certain sensual situations. The content is in no way intended to be pornography, in the technical sense, but sensual experiences on an intimate level. I believe the stories enable couples to truly explore their own hidden desires and find the fulfilment of many experiences beyond their normal realm.
How do you approach cover design?
I use "Self Pub Book Covers" - they provide a good source of material which suits my needs.
As my short story books have different themes - the main cover can be chosen to compliment the atmosphere and style of the story.
Belinda and Robert climbed a mountain peak – on the homeward journey they found a delightful water pool where they explored their intimate treasures.
Their outdoor trek on a hot summers day led to a natural sensual relationship that they both enjoyed and cherished.
Celia and Stan found themselves in a strange land. With only themselves for personal company they took advantage of their surroundings to explore their intimate resources. Their adventures found unexpected fulfilment for them both.
A chance meeting again with Racquel’s local handyman caught her experiencing pleasures she hadn’t even dreamed about.
Rod revealed to Racquel just how high sensual stimulating sensual feelings could become and how meaningful their experiences would be.
