When did you first start writing?
I wrote ad copy for five years. This gave me my basic training in writing. I began writing porn for pleasure twelve years ago. I was curious and interested in just about everything, but I realized that coercive sex scenarios including capture, interrogation, sexual humiliation and torture fascinated me the most. When I started to write these types of stories drew me. And, after I had written about a dozen, I couldn't help but notice that 'vanilla' sex wasn't well represented.

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I didn't plan to be an indie writer, but as I kept delving into the subjects that drew me, writing became the logical next step. For years I wrote for free, but my readers encouraged me to expand my horizons and the advent of the eBook format became a boon for me and so many others.
