My name is Johnny Stone, and I live in a relatively small town in Nebraska. I’ve always had a passion for reading from a young age, but in the last few years I have been enjoying novels of a more erotic nature.
If I enjoy reading than I can honestly say I love writing. I’m primarily an erotica author at this point, working elements of my personal experiences and own taste in reading into a sexy, fast-paced and adventurous read that breaks away from the norm of what I consider classical erotica. I like to think outside the box, and come up with ideas that twist the reality of what is, into what could be. Both writing and reading are wonderful things, because the only limits are your imagination. I hope you decide to step into my world some day, and experience my dreams, making them your own at some point.
I guess it might help some of you to know a bit more about me as a person, to understand the premise that I take with my writing. From a young age, I’ve always enjoyed reading about fantastic adventures, alternate realities, Sci-Fi, fantasy, and military fiction. I was in the Army for 12 years, and I’m a combat veteran. I’ve traveled the world and done things, gone to places, both in and out of the service that most people only dream or read about. As a result, I try to incorporate all those things into my writing, to some degree or another.
I’ve always been a natural and later, a practicing Dominant, in the BDSM aspect of the word. Most of my writing reflects this, being centered on numerous aspects of the lifestyle. I like the elements of suspense, a twisting plot and the inevitable ‘happy ending’ most times, despite the rigorous journey of the characters to get there. Things, such as life and love, are generally more appreciated in the long run when you have to fight for them.
Conflict, from both external and internal sources, is a must in my writing. That’s the clincher, the hook, that keeps people reading, wondering what's going to happen next, and if their hero/heroine will be able to overcome these obstacles to a satisfying conclusion.
There’s always a catch though, the darkness before the dawn. My writing in general has a grim undertone, if not a hopeless feel at time, punctuated with dangerous adventure, and realistic combat, based on my experiences in the Army. My stories are very real, as are the characters, in a genre that favors the sanitation of the very reality people are trying to escape to by reading in the first place. My characters are imperfect, they have flaws, but that’s what makes them ‘real,’ in my opinion. I’m also an avid history buff, and it shows during the course of my writing in some cases.
My strong points are plot/ story development, and character creation. It comes naturally to me because all the role-playing games that I grew up playing as a kid. A vivid imagination has been the key to unlocking my potential. As for my weakness, which has improved greatly over the years, it’s the mechanics of grammar and punctuation. I had to learn to write from scratch, on my own without professional schooling.
My goal was to be a writer and nothing was going to stand in my way once I had ‘target lock.’ In a way, you could say that I’m proof that if you want something bad enough, that if you want your dreams to come true, they can and will.
I currently have four books in print with Pink Flamingo Publication: a contemporary based Paranormal titled, The Devil’s Dance, a futuristic historical set in the Steampunk genre titled, Steam and Spurs, and a general erotica novel that dabbles into everything from vanilla sex to light BDSM, titled Misadventures in Infidelity. My latest release is Slave World, a science fiction novel that pushes the limits of some fetishes.
