Does life get any better than this? My students would NEVER in a million years think I even have sex, much less that I know way more about it than they do. HA!
I build DNA models upon request.
What inspires you to write?
Spending my days in a biology lab with students who don’t want to be there inspires me to greatness. I thought, “What the heck, I’m a good storytelling and writer, I’ll give it a shot!” I never in a million years dreamed I would love writing sex stories so much, but I do. Now, my goal is to make enough money to retire early. My students aren’t the only ones tired of sitting though biology class.
Tell us about your writing process.
Outliner, for sure! If I don’t outline, my mind constantly works in too many freaky directions at one time. I would never finish a book if I didn’t use an outline. I do my outlining in Schrivener, makes it super easy!
I prefer developing my characters before I start writing. It makes it easier for me to come up with their thoughts, emotions, and dialogue if I have a solid mental picture of them first.
I start with the kink I’m featuring, and first, I compile my research, then sketch out what my general plot will be. Once I have that, then I develop my characters. After that, I’m ready to build my outline. Once all that is in place, it’s time to sit for hours and hours typing my rough draft. I go over my work once, fixing errors, then it’s off to the editor. While she has it, I am looking for the perfect cover picture to send my designer. I don’t have to find my own pictures, but I enjoy that part of it, giving my characters faces.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
It’s just me and them for long stretches of time, and I get lonely, so I do talk to my characters a lot. Lots of times, I ask my characters questions like, “And then what happened.” And then they tell me what happened.
In fact, I’m pretty sure if anyone were to ever watch me when I’m writing, they would lock me away for my own safety.
What advice would you give other writers?
Don’t give up. My first few stories were terrible, but I kept writing and listening to people who told me what I was doing wrong. It’s trial and error, heavy on the error, until things start to click.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
My stuff is seriously deranged. I don’t think I would be published by anyone other than myself, so that was an easy choice.
New authors should do what’s right for them. Everyone follows their own path for different reasons. Follow your own path, that’s my advice.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Well, it’s definitely in state of flux. I hope the waves push the big publishers to become more user friendly.
What do you use?
Professional Editor, Professional Cover Designer, Beta Readers
What genres do you write?
So far, I’ve done super taboo stuff like mind control, diaper lovers, and I really love supernatural stories. What I don’t write is romance. After all these years of having a front seat to teenagers “falling in love” and back out again over and over and over, I’m honestly kind of sick of it. I’d much rather write about a fairy forest that is nearly destroyed by a queen who gets everyone hooked on moonblood (which drives them out of their heads). If you didn’t get that reference, check out the Wildings Enraptured series. I had so much fun creating that!
