BDSM Writers Con Book Contest Winner 2015
Golden Flogger Award nominee
Attending BDSM Writers Con since 2012

 

Why did you begin writing BDSM novels?
I’d read many BDSM novels before I even thought about writing one. It was a genre that always intrigued me. Once I decided to try my hand at it, ideas of scenes kept popping into my head, particularly when I was driving in the car. Not all of the scenes ever made it into my books, but I have definitely enjoyed the process.

Will you be attending BDSM Writers Con or other events we can meet you at?
I have been attending BDSM Writers Con since its inception as a 3-day workshop with
Dr. Charley Ferrer sitting in a hotel suite with 11 people listening to her explain the tenets of Dominance and submission. During that weekend, she also took us to Paddles, a BDSM club in NYC. There we were able to meet and talk to many people in the lifestyle. It was, to say the least, an eye-opening experience. It was after that first conference that I wrote my first BDSM erotic romance.

Each year the conference gets bigger and includes more workshops with writers and BDSM lifestylers. I have learned so much from them and made some really good friends over the years. Even as it grows, the conference engenders a supportive group of readers and writers who help one another in their understanding of BDSM. As a writer, I have been encouraged by other writers from the conference and the readers as well. I will definitely be at both the Everett and NYC conferences this year.

What does being nominated for the Golden Flogger Award mean to you?
I consider it a great honor. I know that Dr. Charley created the conference to dispel the myths and inaccuracies that were a part of a number of BDSM novels and being nominated is a recognition by the conference that I got that part right.

What is the hardest part of writing your novel?
I like to write about characters one could actually meet in real-life. As much as I love books that create fantasy worlds like the Marketplace by Laura Antoniou or the Vampire Queen series by Joey W. Hill, I am interested in exploring how we create passion and find love in day-to-day life. But that is not nearly as interesting as the rarefied worlds of fantasy, so it is difficult to take those things that people do everyday and bring a new perspective to them. I hope I’ve been successful in taking readers on a journey that allows them to see how overcoming your fears and opening yourself up to another brings back rewards far greater than you could have imagined.

Tell us a little about yourself and your writing works.
After pursuing careers in publishing and then catering, I have returned to a passion that I had when I was much younger—writing. As mentioned above, I always enjoyed reading erotic romance as well as classic literature that told great stories of people striving to fulfill their destinies and the obstacles they had to overcome. I am working on a series called Kitchen Confessions, the first book of which, Catering to His Needs, was a winner in last year’s BDSM Writers Con Book Contest and received and contract from Totally Bound publishers. The series is about four women who have a catering company, and the books can be read as standalones since each one explores the D/s relationship of one woman in the kitchen. I am currently working on the next book in that series, tentatively titled Catering to His Desires.

Rose has been an avid reader all her life and pursued that obsession into the publishing business, where she worked in both production and editorial for books and magazines. When her son went off to college, she decided to fulfill another passion and went to culinary school, thinking she would write a cookbook but loving the cooking so much she became a caterer. But her love for books is ever-present and she finally decided it was time to follow her own creative muse and write the kinds of books she enjoys reading. She hopes her readers enjoy them as well.

Join us in welcoming
BDSM Writers Con
Golden Flogger Award
nominee, erotic author B.B. Blaque as she discusses writing, romance and BDSM


What prompted you to write B.D.S.M. romance versus other genres?

I’ve written all sorts of things over the years. Most have tended toward the psychological aspect of something. I also used to own a website that chronicled my life as a 24/7 slave and was geared toward helping other submissives and slaves find their way on the path to surrender.

While reading Fifty Shades I was challenged by a friend to write it differently. I know the story is of one particular type of journey, but I felt it bastardized (like many in the community) the life I’ve come to love. This is when I detoured into writing fiction. My love for the journey and how mine has helped me grow gives me the passion to write other possible options.B.B. Blaque

What differences or difficulties do you see in writing D/s compared to another type of romance?
I’m only beginning to take my main character into the vanilla world—a place she’s never been—to learn the power of choice. I’m actually a bit nervous (happily) about this part—but am looking forward to connecting to her emotions and thoughts.  Thankfully my Master presented a song to help me see things more clearly.

I will be comparing the sameness and the differences between the two choices—so I’ll have to update this when I delve deeper.

What do you find most inspirational when writing?
Hands down the answer to this is music! When I’ve gotten stuck—it’s been due to lack of musical inspiration. Conversely—music will open my eyes and the flood gates of creativity. Music is also responsible for drawing my attention toward other characters who are begging to be written. Their soundtrack is most prevalent in my life and difficult to avoid with any real success. Soon they’ll have my undivided attention and I can’t wait!

BB_Blaque_booktrailer2Just about any music can stir something, but the most common is some genre of rock. I go for lyrical content and rhythm. I love southern rock and classic rock—it gives me the raw, gritty and sweaty back drop for my upcoming release “The Masters M.C.” (BDSM, M.C. Romance.)

I also like glam rock, funk, disco and for some strange reason….I want to see what Bread and 70’s Gold style music could call forth.

How do you feel about the heroes you write?
I fall in love with each of them and have a little separation anxiety when I have to walk away (vowing to give a few spin-offs because I enjoyed them so much!)

I write dominant men I can be passionate about–who can consume me. Each is different with his own style and method to inspire and extract her submission.??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

I also really like these men. I won’t write a dominant without self-control above everything else, he may have issues because he is human, but he will prevail in self discipline. They have integrity of mind and spirit and I try to make sure to bring that across. Even the most strict, or deeply alpha dominant will have a good heart. (I look forward to balancing this tightrope with the M.C. Romance. Colt & Kash will be undeniably alpha but solid men and worthy Masters.)

Are you anything like the characters you write?
Yes—to an extent. The female characters are all submissive and slaves (ultimately.) They’re all a bit rougher around the edges—tougher than I’ve ever been—which is fun to explore. There’s some of me in each of them but they’re who they are and as the stories unfold they tell me which way to take them. I’ve changed entire directions of things to make them more true to the characters’ souls and what I feel from them.

BB_Blaque_Eternally_1A personal note from B.B.:
I’ve been a life-style slave for many years and most likely submissive, in some way, for the majority of my life.

I write about transformation and the life journeys of my characters. These metamorphoses occur through love and surrender. The surrender can come from submission or from surrendering to the true self—learning to embrace one’s own personal journey (whatever it may be.)

I love BDSM (Male dominant/female submissive.) I find it fulfilling and sexy when a man wears the pants in a relationship. It’s afforded me the ability to tap into my girly side and bask in that freedom.

I’m even more interested in the psychological aspects of relationships in general and especially when there’s a power-exchange dynamic.

With this in mind I do my best to write stories with many layers and subtleties and paint from palettes I’ve seen in real world M/s relationships (including my own.)  www.bbblaque.com

Golden Flogger Award -- Nominee

Silk Jones

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-images-sexy-female-christmas-elf-silhouette-illustration-image15165974

 

Check out what Silk Jones had to say about in our private interview and feel free to ask a few questions of your own.

 

What got you interested in writing BDSM?
I’ve always had in interest in reading erotica and I’ve always loved to write. My decision to write BDSM erotica merges those two interests. As a child, I read every book in my parents’ collection which included “The Joy of Sex” as well as novels by Harold Robbins and Sidney Sheldon. Later in life, I discovered erotica. My favorite authors in the genre included Anais Nin, Anne Rice, Henry Miller, and those Victorian spanking novels written by “Anonymous.” In recent years, I’ve read BDSM novels by Cherise Sinclair, Red Phoenix, Sadey Quinn and others and thoroughly enjoyed them. I am a novelist who writes romances under a pen name, so I decided to try my hand at BDSM erotica. I started by writing spanking erotica stories for my friends. They loved the stories and encouraged me to publish them. So, here I am.

What resources or research, if any, have you done into BDSM to make your stories realistic?
In reading BDSM erotica, I recognized some things about myself and my past relationships, so I made a decision to learn more about the BDSM lifestyle and to explore it. I joined online BDSM communities and read numerous articles, blogs, and other online resources geared toward educating novices in the lifestyle. I found an experienced Dom to mentor me. I read books about the lifestyle including but not limited to: “SM101: A Realistic Introduction” by Jay Wiseman, “The Ethical Slut – A Practical Guide to Polyamory, Open Relationships & Other Adventures” by Dossie Easton and Janet W. Hardy, and “The New Bottoming Book” by Dossie Easton and Janet Hardy. I attended munches – monthly meetings with experienced local BDSM practitioners who made presentations about various aspects of the BDSM lifestyle and BDSM practices. I also attended “Newbie Night” at a local dungeon where they demonstrated various BDSM skills, techniques, and play practices to those new to the lifestyle.

What differences or difficulties, if any, do you see in writing D/s stories as opposed to your typical romance?
In a typical romance, tried and true classic storylines are accepted, desired and even demanded to a certain extent by the average romance reader. When you write D/s stories, however, an author has to be ever vigilant about authenticity with respect to the lifestyle and avoid clichés. To achieve authenticity, you have to put yourself in the mindset or at least the point of view of a Dom, submissive, Sadist or masochist which might prove a bit difficult if you haven’t been exposed to the lifestyle or if you’re not that experienced in the areas of play about which you’re writing. How does a masochist experience or process pain stimuli? What does a Dom feel or experience when he’s flogging a submissive? Are all submissives masochists and vice versa? The answer to the last question is “no,” but if you don’t know that, you could make a mistake in your novel that might throw your reader out of the story. So writing a D/s story can take more research and more attention to detail and characterization than an average romance novel.

Why have you chosen to attend BDSM Writers Conference?
A Domme I met at an event (she sold me my very first leather paddle) commented online about what a great time she had at the 2014 BDSM Writers Conference and added a link to the conference website. I clicked on the link and was very happy about what I read. The conference seemed tailor made for me. I can interact with my readers, find new ones, get new ideas, learn more about BDSM, and have tons of fun at the same conference. Sounds like the perfect weekend to me.silk jones, BDSM Writers Con, Charley Ferrer, spanking, fetishes, kink

Silk Jones has always been a lover of all things sexy. Silk writes erotica, erotic romance and erotic poetry. Although she has written several erotic spanking stories to entertain her friends, “The Interview: Law Firm Erotica Book I” is her first foray into the publishing world.

S. J. Maylee

S.J. Maylee, kink, erotica, BDSM romance, bondage

 

We asked S.J. Maylee a few questions about writing BDSM erotica. Feel free to ask her a few of your own

 

 

At what point did you decide you wanted to write BDSM themed erotic romance?
I wasn’t compelled to write until I incorporated the dynamics of Dominance and submission into the lives of my characters. In this place of honesty, I can see my characters so clearly and get them to face their deepest desires. These are the stories that won’t leave me alone and inspire me.

Is there one area of BDSM that you tend to write about more? Why do you think that area creeps into your writing more than some others?
All of my stories have Dominance and submission. It’s an area I love to read and it naturally appears in my stories. The amount of strength and restraint a Dom must possess is breathtaking. A submissive’s role is not to be underestimated. It takes a tremendous amount of strength and bravery to give yourself to someone. It also takes a fine balance to build trust between my couples. When it happens, it’s magic. S.J. Maylee, kink, erotica, BDSM romance, bondage

Have you done research in BDSM to make your stories realistic?
Yes, at the beginning of my journey, I became friends with a Dom and we’ve had countless conversation about the dynamics. He helped me to understand how the safe, sane, and consensual rules aren’t just smart, but they play an essential role.

Although I write romantic fiction, I want my love stories to feel real and I recognize my responsibility with the genre and I’ve continued my studies.

What differences or difficulties, if any, do you see in writing D/s stories as opposed to your typical romance?
BDSM is a culture and needs to be respected, but I love that. I’m passionate about learning and this is an area I can really sink my teeth into. BDSM requires honesty and as a romance writer this is often where the heart of my stories are discovered. If a character is lying to themselves, they’ll certainly lie to each other. Breaking through personal barriers and finding their truth is a rewarding experience.

S.J. Maylee, kink, erotica, BDSM romance, bondageS.J. Maylee fell in love with storytelling at a young age and with it came a deep-seated desire for everyone to find their happily ever after. She’s finding the happy endings for her characters one steamy story at a time.

When she’s not reading or writing, you can find her caring for her garden, laughing with her two young sons, or dancing to her husband’s music. She’s a PMP (Project Management Professional), Nia instructor, and coffee addict.

As a writer she has a tendency to break hearts, but she always glues them back together.

Lucy Felthouse speaks out about writing BDSM

 

 

 

What got you interested in writing BDSM?
I actually resisted for a long time, as I didn’t even particularly enjoy reading BDSM stories. But the more I wrote, the more I wanted to experiment with different genres and sub-genres, so when I saw a call for submissions looking for BDSM stories, I gave it a go. The story was accepted, and I’ve never looked back!

What resource, if any, have you done into BDSM to make youLucy Felthouse, BDSM Romance, BDSM Writers, kink, slave, dominatrix, Domr stories realistic?
The beauty of writing fiction is there is no right or wrong – every single last person is different. What gets one person off doesn’t work for someone else. So, although I’ve done research – online and in books – it’s mainly all down to my fertile imagination.

What differences or difficulties, if any, do you see in writing D/s stories as opposed to your typical romance?
I don’t see difficulties. It’s just different, and that’s awesome. I like different – I write lots of different heat levels, pairings, genres, etc, and BDSM is just one of them. I sit down with a bunch of characters and see what story they want me to tell.

Which is your favorite out of all your BDSM books?
Ah, that would be Stately Pleasures. Mainly because it was the first full-length novel I wrote. For that reason it’ll always be special to me.
But it also encompasses lots of my favorite things – a curvy chick, sexy men, a country house, and turning everyday items into something kinky.

Lucy Felthouse is a very busy woman! She writes erotica and erotic romance in a variety of subgenres and pairings, and has over 100 publications to her name, with many more in the pipeline. These include several editions of Best Bondage Erotica, Best Women’s Erotica 2013 and Best Erotic Romance 2014. Another string to her bow is editing, and she has edited and co-edited a number of anthologies, and also edits for a small publishing house. She owns Erotica For All, is book editor for Cliterati, and is one eighth of The Brit Babes.

Jenna Byrnes speaks out about BDSM and her book series

 

 

What got you interested in writing BDSM?
Several years ago I met BDSM author Jude Mason online, and then in person, and we became fast friends. She had an extensive list of titles (Yes Ma’am, Dance of Submission, and dozens more.) The subject matter intrigued me. Before I dived in, she gave me lots of advice and resources to use for research, so my writing would be accurate as well as hot! Jude and I went on to co-author more than fifteen titles together, not specifically BDSM novels but many have a touch of D/s woven in.Jenna Byrnes, BDSM Writers, spanking, fetishes, BDSM romance

I also admire my friend Lisabet Sarai’s writing style. Her spanking stories are top notch, and spanking has become one of my fun favorites to write about.

What genres are your favorite to write?
My absolute favorite is male/male, and most of my recent work is in that area. Ménage adding a woman is fun, and I’ve also added a third man. I like to mix it up and have tried many combinations, including several lesbian stories. I have thirty-nine books available at Totally Bound. I’m in six Coming Together charity volumes, and I have four boxed sets on Amazon which contain more than 28 novellas and short stories.

What elements of BDSM interest you the most?
As I mentioned, I enjoy writing spanking scenes. But my main focus is the D/s relationship and the complexities of it. While at first glance it might appear that the Master is looking out only for his/herself, in reality the well-being of his submissive should be first and foremost in the relationship. That knowledge allows the submissive to trust enough to put him/herself into the hands of another person. Fascinating!

Tell us a litJenna Byrnes, BDSM Writers, spanking, fetishes, BDSM romancetle about your BDSM titles.
My series is called Rose & Thorn Society. The first book is Switching Seth (m/m/f) about a man who desires to try his hand at domination so his Master allows him to bring a woman into their sex play, and ultimately, their lives.

The second book is Never Say Never (m/m/m) about a man whose longtime partner has left him and his new love is into D/s. When the old lover returns he tells him it’s too late, yet his master is intrigued and wants to bring a third into their bedroom.

Book three is Brooklyn Bound (m/f/m) about a couple adding another man into their role-play. It will be available in December from Totally Bound.

Book four is An Unexpected Win (m/m/m) about a Master who loses his submissive for one week in a poker game, and the aftermathJenna Byrnes, BDSM Writers, spanking, fetishes, BDSM romance of how that plays out. This one is coming in Jan. 2015 from Totally Bound.
Jenna Byrnes could use more cabinet space and more hours in a day. She’d fill the kitchen with gadgets her husband purchases off TV and let him cook for her to his heart’s content. She’d breeze through the days adding hours of sleep, and more time for writing the hot, erotic romance she loves to read. Jenna thinks everyone deserves a happy ending, and loves to provide as many of those as possible to her gay, lesbian and hetero characters. Her favorite quote, from a pro-gay billboard, is “Be careful who you hate. It may be someone you love.”

Adrianna Taylor

Adrianna Taylor, Story of Control, BDSM Writers, Dominatric, non-fiction BDSM 
My book is factual
not fiction!

What got you interested in writing about BDSM?

I am a Dominatrix, and have been for three years, so my book is based on real life accounts of my sessions. Initially I had no intention to write a book, but a man I met by chance (who is now my editor and business partner), said, when I told him what I did: “Adrianna, I bet you have some really interesting stories to tell about being a Dominatrix. I am sure people would love to read your real life account, as opposed to the fictional ones that are now so popular.” I thought about it for a week or so, then started writing. 6 months later, my book, The Story of Control is on sale on Amazon, both as a Kindle E-book, and as a paperback.

What research, if any, have you done into BDSM to make your stories realistic?

Being a Mistress, I can draw inspiration for my sessions. For example, if I have a client who has a very interesting persona, or is outlandish in their wishes, they make interesting characters to write about. Or if I try a new activity in my sessions, I can write about that too. I like to portray the realistic side of BDSM, as it is not all dungeons and PVC. My clients are real people who rely on my making their fantasy a reality, either for their sexual gratification, or  just to lay to rest a nagging fantasy.  What differences or difficulties, if any, do you see in writing D/S stories as opposed to your typical romance?
With my book, The Story of Control,  I have successfully Adrianna Taylor, Story of Control, BDSM Writers, Dominatric, non-fiction BDSMcombined enough of the BDSM kinky element, but have also added other threads, an important one being romance. In my opinion, if written well, romance and BDSM can go together. Everyone, whether they admit it or not, has a kinky side. But often they may just not know how to let out and satisfy it.
Do you get any sexual gratification from being a Dominatrix? From reading your book, it’s obvious that your clients do. But do you?
Personally I don’t get sexual grafication from dominating a client, I enjoy having control over someone but see it more as a strict boss-employee situation.
 
What does your partner think about you being a Dominatrix, and seeing men without clothes on, and spanking their bare bottoms?
Most of my clients are a lot older than myself and certainly not what I would consider attractive. My partner has always been very supportive of me and is completely fine with me seeing clients, and on occassions has also watched a session on request by a client
Adrianne has been a mistress for three years. At the age of 23, disillusioned with the world of modelling, I entered the world of BDSM. Being a young Mistress wasn’t always easy, as I would often be scrutinised by older Mistresses, and older potential clients. Some said I was too young to understand corporal punishment, as could not understand how a person would feel being summoned up for the cane. I agreed to an extent, but I knew what fear felt like, growing up with an abusive father and walking on eggshells, never sure which character would be coming home at the end of the day was something I feared. I liked acting, and I enjoyed taking on characters and giving them my own twist, as the strict school mistress or head girl. I was certainly not your typical mistress; an older matron type, or a raven-haired PVC-clad beauty working from a dungeon, I was small, blonde, and busty, working from a domestic setting with a hockey bag of implements and the knowledge and skill to create a character and improvise a setting. But I was a hit.

Roz Lee

Roz Lee, BDSM Writers Con, BDSM romance, kink, erotica

 

Join us in welcoming Roz Lee. We had a few questions for Roz to help us get to know her better. Feel free to pose a few of your own below.

 

When you first started writing, what made you decide to write a novel?
Honestly? I never set out to be a writer, so it never occurred to me that I could write something else. I was a stay at home mom and an avid reader of romance. My daughters joked that I had read so many I could probably write my own. I took that as a challenge—and guess what? I found out that I could write one!

What research, if any, have you done into BDSM to make your stories realistic?
I’ve always been interested in the psychology of why people do what they do, so when I began doing research for writing sex scenes (yes, there is research involved!) my initial inquiries began with psychological texts. Not particularly fun, but interesting in a geeky sort of way. From there, I read non-fiction books on the lifestyle, and of course,
Dr. Charley’s book which is specifically for writers. That led me to virtual research via the internet. It’s truly amazing what you can find online. (When I die, please, someone erase my search history!)

Finally, I read every fiction book I could find that dealt with the lifestyle—everything from The Story of O and the Marquis de Sade to Anne Rice—and of course, I read contemporary romances too, since that was what I intended to write. Yes, I’m a geek. I admit it.

What differences or difficulties, if any, do you see in writing BDSM stories as opposed to your typical romance?
Everyone understands the basic human urge to have sex. That requires no explanation in a romance novel. However, not everyone understands the kinkier side of human sexuality. You can’t have your character whip out a flogger and go to town on another character without some explanation of why either one would be okay with that.

You don’t have to convert the reader to the lifestyle, but you have to convince them your character’s needs are valid and essential to their pleasure and happiness. If you can’t convince them of that, then you’ve lost them completely.

Roz Lee, BDSM Writers Con, kink, eroticaIf you weren’t a writer, what would you be?
I’d be a Science teacher. I love science so you would think I’d write in the paranormal, sci-fi or even steampunk genres, wouldn’t you? LOL I’d probably get lost in the research and forget to write, so I’ll leave that to others.

Award winning author Roz Lee has penned over a dozen erotic romances. The first, The Lust Boat, was born of an idea acquired while on a Caribbean cruise with her family and soon blossomed into a five book series published by Red Sage. Following her love of baseball, she turned her attention to sexy athletes in tight pants, writing the critically acclaimed Mustangs Baseball series. When Roz isn’t writing, she’s reading, or traipsing around the country on one adventure or another. No trip is too small, no tourist trap too cheesy, and no road unworthy of travel.

Here are a few questions we had for Alex Tempera

 

 

What got you interested in writing BDSM?
I like writing a variety of genres to challenge myself.  I was inspired by the work of author Caethes Faron. She does not write BDSM but her work inspired me to attempt to write erotica. The minute I decided to try that, I knew I should involve BDSM as a sub-genre. It just seemed to fit the story I wanted to write.

What research have you done in regards to learning about BDSM and the lifestyle?
My friend, whom I have known for over 18 years, is a Dom and engaged to his submissive. I always knew about his lifestyle, which for years he kept hidden from most people, but always talked to it about me because he knew I would never judge him. I jetted him an email and asked if he would mind answering some questions. I told him what I wanted to do and he answered everything and gave me more information, such as websites like social media sites for those involved in the lifestyle. (not sure if I should list the site or not, but it’s fetlife.com)

Do you only write BDSM stories or have you ventured into other Alex Tempera, BDSM Writers, bondage, bdsm romance, kink, fetishesfacets of erotica and romance?
I have written three books (2 of them not yet published) that have to do with BDSM and the lifestyle. I have also written a m/m erotica romance that does not have any BDSM within the storyline.

Do you think there is a difference between a BDSM romance versus a regular romance?
I think there are differences in the way the romance versus erotica stories are told because of how much detail and the language used, especially when describing sexual situations. In BDSM, it is not always about sex and romance, but the bond between the dominant and submissive. In my book, “Waiting for Superman”, the bond between the main character, Kylie (who was a submissive) and her late-husband, Ian, who was also her Master is still strong. The bonds and power between the two can be very strong if it’s there. If there is no sense of bond, the D/s relationship will not work.

Any current projects or series in connection with released books? Waiting for Superman does have a sequel, but it is too early to release it. Waiting for Superman does NOT have a cliffhanger ending. The sequel picks up a year later and it’s called “club Olympus”.

Do you have any personal experience in the lifestyle?
In doing my research, I found a deeper interest into the lifestyle and Alex Tempera, BDSM Writers, bondage, power exchange, master slave, fetishesnow, I do have my own submissive.

Alex Tempera is the alter ego of author Amy Shannon. In the quest for a new genre, Amy transformed into Alex to create a new depth of erotica and romance novels. The beauty of a well written erotica novel is that is contains a thoughtful and romantic storyline as well as beautifully written intimate scenes. Alex’s research into erotica genres, BDSM play and the lifestyle will continue to enter into her stories. Alex’s stories do not just revolve around romance sex, but there is always some form of conflict that allows the lovers to realize that they are meant for each other.

Cara Downey

CaraDowney1

 

 

Join me in welcoming a new author,
Cara Downey as she debuts her kinky erotic poetry.

 

 

Why did you choose to write about BDSM?
I chose to write about BDSM, because it is important to me. There is a lot of misunderstanding about the lifestyle. So I wanted to write about how beautiful the lifestyle is and how deep the connection is between two people who live the life.

Who was your inspiration and contributed to your decision to take the plunge and publish your work?
My inspiration to write came from authors like Maya Banks and Beth Kery, to name a few.

Do you have plans to write a full length Cara Downey, BDSM Writers, erotic poetry, bondage, kinknovel?
Yes, I do plan to write a full length novel at some point. Right now I am working on my next collection of poetry.

Why BDSM?
Why not BDSM??? BDSM is a deep connection between two people, who have amplified their love for one another. There is misconception and a negative view surrounding BDSM. With books like “Fifty Shades of Grey” etc…BDSM is now on the front burner.
