If you’re a fan of the Kensington Ladies Erotica Society or the ‘Best Women’s Erotica’ series, and you ever wondered whether you, too, could craft writing that sizzles, this book is for you.

So here I am, almost 66, ready for a new life of book tours and launch parties and hanging out with other women over fifty writing erotica.

"You don't have to be a cockroach," she said. "You could be like Superman,
