About me

passionate – literate – creative – intelligent – and above all, sincere

I believe in erotica as stories with the sex left in - it seems wrong to be able to describe dust in detail, but not sex, where relationships, characters, and motivations really do change. My Lust Bites article, Stories with the sex left in, explores this idea further.

I’m influenced by 20th century women’s literature (Byatt & Co, rather than Fielding & Co), lots of fantasy and sci-fi authors, occult and esoteric writings – Jung, the Qabbalah, alchemy – and then very loud mournful music and the right incense. All a bit intense - if it weren’t for Monty Python and Blackadder I’d probably have killed myself by now.

My erotic genres vary – fantasy, realism, fairy tales – but I try to stay true to my own beliefs in what is beautiful and have my characters true to themselves. I usually impose some intellectual or symbolic system, which threads through everything. It’s for myself, mostly – it’s there if you want to find it, otherwise it just provides richer, more exact detail. (For some of the background riches to The Ten Visions, read Samhain: the time which is no time.)

I haven’t done everything I write. I’ve never managed to raise the dead, see ghosts, speak to the gods, or – despite many spontaneous attempts and bruises – fly.

Oh – and one word of advice: no touching. It’s so much more fun thatway.
