Catherine visits a wheelchair dominatrix

(Being the third of occasional excerpts from my novel) By this time, although the beauty of her work was impressive, I find my thoughts drifting to the rattan, the business end of the product. I remember how it felt to wield it, the empowerment, the swishing sound it makes through the air. I felt suddenly […]

…and risqué letters

I left you a few weeks ago, dear readers, on Pimlico Road as I had just set out on my UK odyssey to bring the world of Spank to my fellow Brits. I realize, however, that if I really want to sell my novel here, I’d be better off to leave Pimlico and head north […]

The number of authors I admire and enjoy are  too numerous to list here, but I thought I might tell you about one writer who influenced the creation of Spank.

It all comes full circle…

This past week I was watching the news when I saw a clip of the flooding in Venice, which has left 70 percent of the city underwater. As I watched images of the water in St. Mark’s square reaching inhabitants’ thighs, my mind wandered to the annual Erotica Show that takes place every November in […]

How a flea beat out a fly in the race to erotic narration 125 years ago

Who hasn’t wished they could be a ‘fly on the wall’—nearly invisibly dropping in on a particularly juicy conversation or event? And what kind of event would be juicier than an erotic one? So when I was thinking of how best to recount the goings-ons in the court of Catherine de Medici—the 16th century Queen […]
