Erotic literature is like the finest chocolate. Even if you don't always know what you are going to get, I try to make sure you savor every moment. Erotica without setting and plot is just sex. It's through making people and circumstances as real as possible that is the spice of erotica.
I'm a lone amateur author, fully employed at 50+ hrs a week so not writing as often, with a new great editor and friend Teagan O'Stevenson, so hopefully there won't be as many typos as my earlier works. If you spot one feel free to let me know and I'll fix it promptly and try and make it worth it for you with a free book if someone else hasn't already pointed it out.

I came to the United States in 1966 for higher education at a time when Iran and America were strongly allied against the Soviet Union. It was a heady era to arrive on the California Coast as I soon found myself embroiled in many of the time’s controversies while attending Monterey Peninsula College. An on-campus bulletin board which I used to post my opinions on politics and culture (an early blog of sorts), a ... read more
