Tell me about your stories and the monsters they feature!
Personally, I really love spooky ghosts more than anything. I’ve always been a conventional horror fan, and it’s a really good mashing of the two. All my monster books feature a horror element.
What do you like to call your category? “Monster erotica”, “beast porn”, something else?
I go with Monster Erotica. Beast Porn could be anything with an animal, including shifters. Monster Erotica is more concrete.
If there was no such category as monster erotica, what would you call your work?
Paranormal would probably be the best fit.
Why do you write and read monster erotica? What’s the appeal?
It’s certainly the taboo element, it’s so wrong that it’s right. It’s also something you simply can’t get out of video porn, which is nice.
Favorite sexy beast?
As much as I love writing ghosts, gargoyles are probably my favorite. Cold, hulking stone creatures!
What else do you write?
My post popular genre, and one I have so much fun writing, is gender swap erotica. Men becoming women, women growing penises. It’s outlandish, it’s fun, it’s sexy.
Kiss/kill/marry: Bigfoot, a Grey alien, the Loch Ness Monster
I’d kiss Nessy, she seems sweet enough. I’d kill the alien, I’ve always had a phobia of aliens (I blame too much X-Files as a kid). Marry Bigfoot. I think he’d try to do right by me.
What’s the best writing advice you ever heard?
It’s cliche, but write every day. Not just for profit, but for yourself. Writing is a great mental escape.
Anything else you’d like to say?
For people thinking of getting in to writing erotica thinking it’s an easy, quick way to make a buck – you’re in for a surprise. This is my full time job and has taken me a long time just to make enough to barely scrape by. You won’t get rich quick, but it’s a great way to have a little extra money.
