Danielle Richards was born, raised and now lives in Honolulu, Hawaii and experiences much of the lifestyle explored in this book. The author is not Lani, but shares a similar, but not as exciting, background and lifestyle. While the stories of Lani are inspired by reality, they are pure fiction and any resemblance to actual persons and places is only a coincidence or your imagination. The author enjoys practical hands-on research into the subject matter so that the situations and sensations discussed may be as realistic as possible, and has enjoyed meeting with some of the fields' foremost experts and practioners. Danielle Richards practices, advocates and writes about only safe, sane and consensual engagement in any BDSM or sadomasochistic activity or play. The stories explores some of the ways consensual BDSM may still be very exciting and challenging and highly rewarding to all the participants. Danielle Richards is adamantly and violently opposed to any nonconsensual abuse of any kind to any person under any circumstances; and all characters in the stories told and in actual play must be knowledgeable and aware and at least over eighteen years of age. The eroticism and enjoyment of BDSM play is not based on degrees of physical involvement, levels of pain or intensity. It is based on the willingness of all players to provide to the others what they all seek. While it is a physical and visual medium, it is far more a matter imagination, emotion, and the mind.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born and raised in Hawaii and this has greatly influenced my writing in mood, people, places and activities portrayed. It is a multi-cultural environment but surrounded by the ocean that has an influence on everyone and everything that happened here. Honolulu is a small town that is also a big city, so people know a lot about each other and what's happening.
When did you first start writing?
I started to write my stories when I found that someone besides me was interested in my life-style and interests, and when I had gained enough experience in my subject matter and met some very special people that encouraged me to share what I know, what I feel and how I think with others that may be the same or benefit from what I have to share.
