I've been writing since I was sixteen and only as I got older did my writing become more sexually explicit. But it has also expanded into the paranormal, historical, surreal.

Dying in Pleasure has erotic scenes between men and women, women and women, men and men; between slaves and masters, whores and noblewomen, gladiators and everyone.

Writing with Bipolar Disorder

I'm quite medicated. I don't have the massive, supernova bursts of creativity that I had had in high school and college. I get normal sleep so I can't stay up all night working. What I used to call "inspiration" which got me through 200 pages a month doesn't exist anymore. Yet I struggle still to focus.
