Biography

I like to write interesting things but I like to read more. I have a love of erotic works and have many ideas that are still waiting to make to the page. I hope what I have published is creative enough to rise above a lot of what the industry has pushed out without proper story lines. I believe you cannot get into the proper erotic moment without knowing all of what the character is up to in any given moment.

Full written fiction provides the perfect medium to release the greatest arousal one can get from that special moment. And that's why I strive to create. Please comment one way or the other on any of my works. I want to hear what my readership has to express.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing back in 2011. I always had good story's locked in my head. As I watched a movie or read a book I would discover that some elements of an idea I had locked away had just presented itself in the media I was just being entertained by. So In 2011 I decided to try my hand by using a powerful dream I had years back to give the story some background.

You know I always try something new the hardest possible way. I'm not sure why that is. When I decided to use a dream as the backdrop to the story I literately was making something fit instead of just filling out the dream. "Why do something easy?" My mind would say, "lets go and raise the difficulty level and write a whole book trying to fit in the dream as specific elements to make the manuscript better."

In the end I thought it came out pretty good. The ending was not what some of my readers thought it should be but there is a hidden message. I'm interested if some of my readers will see it.
What's the story behind your latest book?
This next book has no dream elements in it at all. It is all hammered out story. Since I seem to be pretty good at writing erotic material, I decided that I would again follow that path. I wanted to mate up the idea of a professional woman police detective with her having a problem with sex addiction. To make it interesting I wanted this character to be in the process of trying to kick it as opposed to using it as a second career. There are to many story lines where the sex part is naturally part of life which makes each sexual encounter almost boring, no matter how well it is described.

Charlot Day needs to catch a serial killer and sex both gets in the way and become a avenue to a means. I think the story is good enough to consider making it into a small series.

"Laugh" My wife thinks it's good too. Which is why I'm doing another erotic title. My bedroom activity has changed a little and the material I'm writing about becomes the story told during... well you know.

I have to say that telling a story, to my wife, about what I'm writing that day has released aspects of bedroom activity that I never knew existed. To finish speaking about this topic I will just say that hearing me tell the activity that goes on in my mind is far better than any movie ever watched, for both my wife and myself.

  • A Christmas Tale on Oct. 16, 2012

    We get to see the wonderful beginnings of a man who became more generous this year at his business’s Christmas party. In years past he was mostly a miser but the new change in this holiday seasons get-together is festive and giving. He shows his gratitude toward his greater life by giving generous gifts from around the world to his staff. Frank, the newest member of his staff, is impressed by the fun at the party. His wife, Ellie, is equally pleased by the affair. When the gifts are unwrapped to ooh’s, and aah's Frank becomes expectant. But when he receives the poorest of all the gifts laid out that night, an old box filled with sand, he feels left out. The story is about what Frank’s poor man’s gift really is as it begins to reveal itself over the seven days before Christmas. It is a story about love, tragedy, faith and hope. The poorest gift turned out to be the greatest gift of them all. Patrick Meservier was careful to wind a story that pulled at my heart at every corner. I admit, hesitantly, that I can be weepy when reading a good story and this one doesn’t fail in that regard. It broke my heart open and filled it with hope. A constriction in my throat tells me that I will remember this story for a long time to come. If doesn’t pull at your heart, you may want to change your type of literature to non fiction to discover why.
  • Joan Darcy & The 27th Observer, The Telescope of Elsewhere on Oct. 18, 2012

    Harry Potter all over again? I picked up Joan Darcy & the 27th Observer, The Telescope of Elsewhere several days ago. I found the beginning somewhat slow but Joan’s sudden appearance at an orphanage without a memory drew me in, I yearned to find out about her past. It’s clear from the start that Joan was no normal teeager. Joan is gifted in her ability to have no fear of gangs or boys, a ruthless combination as an orphan against those who seek to oppress her, but to what end? What happened in her past that moved her to become so courageous? But then the toy telescope showed up in her life. That’s when the story begins to take off. Joan Darcy begins to recall memories. She has been devoid of such things for a time, however these memories are very old and include intimate knowledge of places and war hundreds of years in the past. Her new friends, Miranda and Milton Caldwell, decide to take up the cause of helping her to regain information about her past. Strangely her past is connected to an organization that also offer philanthropy towards Autistic individuals. Questions build faster than answers. Now I will not give too much away about the ever increasing pace of the story but I will reveal that the telescope shows the viewer other worldly images. Cleary Joan is somehow connected to what the telescope shows, what is not clear is how. The story is suspenseful as the connection unfolds to the end. I found the story exciting and very fresh. It certainly doesn’t have wizards, magic, or realms in middle Earth. The story relies on real cutting edge science which makes it so desirable to read as a science fiction fan. Things to watch for as a reader, never ask what Pisscannte means (Yes, this is the true spelling.) and don’t miss the paper airplane trick, it gives new meaning to how dangerous paper can really be. I can’t wait to read the next installment in this coming five book series.
  • Joan Darcy & the 27th Observer, In the Eye of the Beholder on Jan. 14, 2015

    I liked this one better than the first. There is no shortage of action as Joan realizes that she is greater than a normal sixteen year old. Old and new villains focus their attention on finding the casket. As her memory releases specific moments in her life, the evidence that the term "Lived a full life" takes on meaning with this child. There is so much in this story, it gives rich and full value to the depth of this story. The more layers that becomes exposed in Joan's life, the farther we go back in time. Loved it!
