1) What led you to write erotic fiction?
I started out writing everything except erotic fiction, but most of my stories usually had an element of romance. When I wanted to put more graphic sex scenes into my young adult dark fantasy novel, I knew I was in the wrong genre! Erotica gave me the outlet to be as free as I wanted to be while still telling the original stories going on inside my head.
2) What inspired you to write your new book?
"Cat Games" is actually the rewrite of my earliest erotic fiction "Adventures In Plastic Wrap" and its sequel "Cat & Mouse". I realized that these two stories had the potential to be much better and that the story wasn't complete. Knowing that I could I take the story further drove me to push my limits and give my readers the quality work I knew I could create. And the story refuses to stop, so I need to keep writing. There's a Cat Games 2 in works!
3) What is your favorite scene and why?
My favorite scene would have to be the orgy Gummy Bear Game scene that Mouse plays with Rayne and her group of friends at their apartment. There are a lot of sexual games out there, but just picturing this game in action gets my blood boiling! It allows for two or more players, is kinky, and is a sweet tooth's dream. I suggest playing this game all the time to people looking for a way to spice up their sex lives. (Check out this game in my book excerpt)
4) What was the most challenging aspect of writing this book?
No one wants to read the same sex scene over and over. New positions, new euphemisms, new actions, locations, characters--all these things need to be kept fresh. The only way to keep your audience entertained throughout your book--to stop them from putting it down--is to continuously give them something they've never read before. Since I write an awful lot of sex scenes, this is usually my biggest challenge.
5) What message, if any, do you want your audience to walk away with?
"Cat Games" is story about a female character dubbed "Mouse", who wants a lot more out her sex life than she's had in the past. She wants the freedom to express herself and explore the possibilities that pleasure has to offer. Mouse struggles to understand herself and those around her and goes through a frustrating and liberating transformation to achieve her goals.
The overall message that I've tried to convey in this story is that a person's sexual journey is a personal and beautiful thing, and not something to that needs to be hidden regardless of what a person is into. You can have one lover, two, three, or none at all. You can be vanilla, kinky, extreme, or somewhere between. There is no wrong way to love so long as you're true to yourself and honest with those involved. Happiness, I believe, is achieved through self discovery, and I would hope that this story would inspire my readers to crawl out of their own shell, knock down their walls of security, and embrace their own sexual being.
6) Tell us something unique about yourself
I live in Sheep Shit Nowhere Europe, I'm obsessed with producing produce from my garden, and I make kick ass baked goods.
She was quiet—an introvert, a thinker. They called her Mouse. But beneath her veneer was a passionate hunger and desire for those around her, and a longing to act out fantasies she didn't even know she had. After a brutal betrayal by her former lover, Mouse’s journey toward sexual fulfillment begins with a justified revenge led by Rayne—a dominant and more knowledgeable goddess—where Mouse experiences her first female sexual encounter and develops a taste for non-vanilla sex.
But just a taste of something new isn’t enough for Mouse. Longing for a more satisfying lifestyle and sexual education, Mouse engages in sexual exploits with Rayne and her openly sexual friends. With the absence of traditional relationship rules, Mouse falls into confusion, desperately trying to find a way to prove she is a capable woman worthy of Rayne’s attentions. Through Rayne’s patient guidance, Mouse is pushed to take charge of her sexuality and learn what it is she truly desires, allowing her to transform from a shy, timid creature to one with claws. Tables turn unexpectedly and suddenly the pupil becomes the teacher.
“Hey, Mouse!” I hear one of the girls call. I turn to look over my shoulder and see Chrystal holding the package of gummy bears I stashed in my pocket earlier. “You dropped something.”
“Woohoo!” Rayne howls, obnoxiously. “I’ve got an idea for a game.” She snatches the package from
and sizes me up, almost eating me with her eyes.
“You read my mind,” Jasper quickly adds, licking his lips.
I have no idea what they’re thinking, but all the faces in the living room are looking me over and grinning in a wicked way. I feel exposed, on display, and very self-conscious. A heat begins to crawl up the back of my thighs, stir in my belly and catch in my chest. I’m suddenly thankful I’m not the type to blush. Standing up a bit straighter, I walk to the fridge, grab another six-pack, and return to my seat with as much confidence as the simple movements of my body will allow.
Rayne makes a yummy noise as she opens my package of sweets. “I just love gummy bears.” She pops one into her mouth with an overemphasized gesture, sucking a bit on the end before using the tip of her index finger to push the bottom the remainder of the way past her thick lips.
Jasper stands up and grabs
“Best. Game. Ever,” Justin mutters from his seat on the couch in exaggerated staccato.
The whole room watches as Jasper pops the gummy bears into his mouth and begins peeling
tight, white shirt over her head. Without any protest, Crystal raises her arms and slips out with an
easy smile. Pulling a wet gummy bear out of his mouth, Jasper sticks it into the
curve of Crystal’s
neck, and then sticks a second securely upon her collarbone. To my surprise,
the gummy bears are held fast, not slipping or sliding from the pull of
Rayne grins and stands from her chair. While trailing her fingers through the tight, red curls on the top of
head, Rayne licks the back of a red gummy bear and sets it atop Crystal’s left shoulder.
I watch Crystal
shiver, and then I turn to look at Justin and Anna on the couch. They’re
watching with deep interest. Grabbing two beers from the pack I set on the
table, Justin opens them without taking his eyes from the scene, and hands one
blindly to Anna.
I’m not sure what’s going on. I thought Justin and Crystal were together but another man—and Rayne—are undressing her in front of everyone. Why is Anna so into watching? They grabbed her attention with that kiss from earlier.
I clear my throat and blink several times as I try to take in what’s happening. Sugar’s great, and a nice pairing with beer, but I don’t understand why they’re sticking gummy bears to
Crystal. If this is really a game, I wonder
what the point is.
My mouth hangs open slightly as I watch Rayne expertly unhook
bra and slide the white straps down over her shoulders, kissing her gently as
she goes. I physically push my jaw shut as I rest my face uneasily in my hand,
watching Jasper pull two more bears from his mouth. He gently squeezes Crystal’s small, naked
breast, pushes his gummy bears to her skin, and audibly blows his breath over
the top of them. Crystal
giggles and looks over to me, where I’m unable to take my gaze away.
“Oh, Mouse,” she laughs. “Look at your face!”
I get it now. Wow.
