I don't write because I want to write. I write because I have to write. There is darkness inside me that won't be denied. Even though it's dark, thing generally work out, but not always in the way my characters (or readers) might expect.
What is your writing process?
My head is bursting with ideas that start stories off. I have dozens of starts that range from single line ideas to half written novels. Bringing a story to a satisfying conclusion is the hard part for me. Lately, I've been trying to start with the ending, and that does work sometimes. I've also tried skipping the middle at first, finding an ending, and then bridging to the end.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read science fiction (low and high tech), fantasy (urban or otherwise), and of course erotica. Sometimes the genres overlap in interesting ways. I've been searching for a really great piece of dark BDSM erotica, for years. I've found stories that succeed partially. Maybe they have a great setting, or some really hot scenes, or perhaps characters I can really feel something for, but no story -- especially the classic stories, Story of O, Justine, Man With a Maid -- does it all for me. It's one thing that keeps me writing. Maybe I can create the story I'm looking for.
Your life sucks if you are fat girl, in a dead-end job, with an abusive boyfriend who takes your money, knocks you around landing you in the hospital, and then sticks you with the bill. Does it get any better when you are then possessed by a demon?
