Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I can't quite remember the stories that I wrote in elementary school, but I do remember always putting extra effort into them even if more than what the teacher asked for.
My first published story is an erotica story titled, "Leave Well Enough Alone" in the anthology, Seductive Pleasures.
What is your writing process?
I often sit on my couch listening to music in various genres and really feeling the music to keep me inspired. I also meditate sometimes before I get started to clear my mind and help me focus.
