I have written 6 erotic novels, 2 novellas and a lot of short fiction, almost all for UK publishers Black Lace. Read on below to find out more or jump straight to contemporary erotica or paranormal urban fantasy.
I started my writing career in women’s erotica (of all places), when I read a mini-short story collection that was cover mounted on a magazine. They were asking for stories. I ended up selling 3 short stories to Black Lace.
I write books about what interests me. I couldn’t bear to think I was writing the same thing as everyone else. My first book, Peep Show, about a woman who is turned on by the idea of gay male sex was pretty much the first mainstream erotic romance about this subject. Mad About the Boy is similarly twisted, about a woman who is hot for the idea of paying a man for sex even though she has a perfectly happy relationship. In both of these books the heroines are in happy long term relationships with nice guys. This is intentional. I wanted to write about how that experience can seem unfulfilling. But how, ultimately, fulfilment can often be found right next to you on the pillow.
Equal Opportunities is a bit of a change. More challenging, darker, and with, *gasp*, two points of view. This book is also more of a traditional romance, featuring a relationship forming between the two main characters. The difference is the hero is in a wheelchair and the heroine is a kinky disability fetishist. Like I say, I don’t like to write what everyone else is writing. This book is generating lots of ‘buzz’. It has received brilliant reviews and won Best Female Domination Scene in the Scarlet Magazine Erotic Fiction Awards 2006.
Following the publication of this book I won Erotic Writer of the Year at the 2007 Erotic Awards.
I then helped launch Black Lace’s new paranormal romance imprint with a trilogy of books about werewolves (this was the first – and only – 3 book deal in Black Lace’s history). Think, Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Basic Instinct meets Grimm’s Fairy Tales. I have also written a lot of short fiction and novellas set in the world of the paranormal.
I have also been involved with Scarlet Magazine since it launched in 2005. They have published a lot of my fiction and I am currently writing their lead serial Semi-Detached about a group of lusty next door neighbours. And it’s sequel – Semi Detached 2.
I am also a slasher, a fan, a fanficcer, and I am a proud supporter of all forms of fan works.
