Born in the South, and raised on both coasts, Sarah Martinez has seen and done a lot. Some might say too much, but where's the fun in that? Sarah says: "That which does not kill us makes us stronger, but that doesn't mean it won't leave a mark." She thinks of her stories as a way to show off the marks and hopes for rave reviews.

The days spent fishing, camping beside deep mountain lakes, exploring hillsides covered in Huckleberries, to the culture shock of living in Washington DC, the people she met

Someone posted something on Facebook recently about how only crazy people believed what they saw on YouTube. I nodded, feeling superior...yes, those easily manipulated dolts who believe in mermaids and conspiracies.

"This is a great exploration into the American sexual psyche, from how we define gender to how we define sex to how we experience, practice, and celebrate all things to do with sexuality. It digs deep into the assumptions we hold about a something..." Read more of this review »

“Nothing is sexier than the naked mind --nothing more seductive than the inventive imagination.”
Michael Grosso

Helen Keller
“Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.”
Helen Keller

Rush Limbaugh
“Feminism was established to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream.”
Rush Limbaugh

“Erotic literarature is literature in which eroticism is the novel. It focuses on that. It also implies a certain degree of description, a certain hard core. And to find novels in which you have plot, character, literary quality, plus detailed and real moving descriptions of fucking is a rarity.

There is a vibration which takes place in the erotic realm, which translating it into something else, demeans it and destroys it. You need real poetry to talk about that sort of thing.”
Marco Vassi, A Driving Passion

Jonathan Franzen
“When the sex is persuasively rendered, it tends to read autobiographically, and there are limits to my desire for immersion in a stranger's biochemistry.”
Jonathan Franzen, How to Be Alone
