Thorny Sterling Thorny Sterling's blog:

frombehindWhen writers ask me questions, I’m happy to answer even if the questions are about sex. I’m told I’m great at brainstorming in general and it’s fun to toss out ideas about different things you’re trying to get your characters to do. Maybe especiallyif you’re trying to get them to screw each other...
