What am I working on?
Right now my major project is a trio of similarly themed series. They’re all centered around the older man/younger woman dynamic and involve elements of Daddy Dom role play, but the characters are different from series to series. Two out of three of my female protagonists are clearly strong, clever young women who know what they want and go for it, even though this particular kink involves giving up a lot of power on the woman’s part during sex itself. Chrissy from the ‘Jansen’ series is a more of a cipher, but that might be because I wrote her first and that story is male POV whereas the others are female POV.
I’m also working on a Masterpiece Theater-inspired historical series. It’s very obviously derivative of a few different period dramas, but with an X-rating.
How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I’d like to think that my stories feature strong characterization and sense of place; that they’re not just stories about random bodies inserting tab A into slot B in some nondescript bedroom. My goal is to be a high quality writer in a genre which has more than its fair share of hucksters, but that’s up to the readers to decide.
Why do I write what I do?
If I’m being honest, it’s partly for the money (although I don’t really make all that much), but it’s also because I’ve been making up stories like these in my head since puberty. I’d lie in bed and listen to music, making up R-rated story lines for imaginary music videos. That’s not exactly the kind of thing you can tell all your friends. The niche I’m working in right now wasn’t a part of my adolescent daydreaming, but I’ve been making up sexy stories for much longer than I’ve been putting them on paper.
How does my writing process work?
For a short, I usually come up with an idea and then go butt-in-chair with it until I hit anywhere between 7,000 to 10,000 words. From there, I just keep molding it until I feel like it’s not a piece of crap, which can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks depending on the story. Sometimes it takes three days from conception to publish, sometimes it’s months. I don’t adhere to any kind of a workflow or schedule. My process is that there is no process!
