Terrance Aldon Shaw


Terrance Aldon Shaw (TAS to his friends) was born and raised somewhere to the left of Chicago in that vast whitebread wilderness known as the American Heartland. As a kid, he passed the time by creating his own graphic novels and “pretend” screenplays, conversing with a brilliant circle of imaginary friends, and dreaming about escape from the stifling phony wholesomeness and pious pabulum of small-town life.

After college and a short stint in graduate school, TAS earned a living as a journalist and free-lance musician. He worked under various pennames as a staff writer and critic at-large for a number of obscure local newspapers and mediocre magazines throughout the upper Midwest. Always precociously oversexed and insatiably curious, he dabbled in erotic writing during his off hours, producing several short stories, a modest body of narrative poetry, and several hundred bawdy limericks.

Now devoting full time to writing and reviewing, TAS specializes in mainstream fiction with strong erotic themes and explicit sexual content. His work might best be described as “psycho-rotica,” as he prefers to explore the complex, fascinating inner world of sex; the thoughts, feelings and emotion s that accompany the erotic experience.

Readers can find Terrance Aldon Shaw’s books in both electronic and traditional print at most on-line retailers. His reviews of erotic fiction, musings on the craft of writing, and the occasional free short story are posted on his blog, Erotica For The Big Brain.
