I am a former actor living in Los Angeles and thanks to Fiona recognizing and nurturing my talent; I currently have 2 novels published by Pink Flamingo, with six more on the way. So, who am I and why am I writing these erotic stories spiced with a BDSM flavor?
I grew up in a small town in Maryland. For a period of my youth, in order to fit in with my peers, I fell in with a group of Born Again Christians. Later, when I became enamored with the Theater, my sensual side took over, freeing me to discover my true nature. I suppose my writing is an attempt to reconcile these two powerful, seemingly opposing psychological forces within all of us, the spiritual and the sensual. The characters in my novels, once released from their feelings of shame, are compelled, as I am, to express the sacred fire of sexuality bottled up within.
After college I moved to NYC to pursue an acting career. Through I did numerous plays and appeared in small roles in the films Awakenings and New Jack City; I never could make a living as an actor. I went through a divorce and moved restlessly around the country, living in Maryland, Colorado, Arizona and Hawaii. I settled in Southern California, working for a regional theater in the Marketing Department. I remarried and am raising two lovely children with my wife, a boy and girl, ages 5 and 9 years old.
About four years ago, I started reading erotic stories and felt inspired to write again. I made a decision not to feel ashamed of the sexually explicit content of the novels by using my actual name, as author. The characters in my novels, both male and female, Dom and sub, all exist as psychological forces within me. I see writing erotic fiction as an act of rebellion, of courage. It expresses who I am and I will no longer hide or feel ashamed of the sensuality within me.
