The idea of exchanging letters with a lover is endlessly romantic and I’m regretful it doesn't happen any more. ...more

As an erotic fiction writer, research can lead to some unexpected surprises. In erotic fiction, as in real estate, it's all about position. ...more

For the past six months I’ve been working behind the scenes to make this website more reader friendly. I’ve made a few small changes to the look and feel of the site, as well as some improvements to content. ...more

Being an author isn't always about getting the words down, although that is the most important part. Once the words are down and out in the wild, people like to talk to you about them, particularly if the words in question are a bit controversial. ...more

Apologies for my absence. I've been frantic the last couple of weeks with finishing a rough draft of my second novel and attending the annual Romance Writers of Australia conference in Fremantle Perth. I have returned to the desk after a fortnight feeling somewhat dazed and confused because during my week in the West I fell in love with so much - music, art, words, people - I think I'm suffering in-love-brain-fry. ...more

You’d think after forty (ahem) years on this earth I’d know pretty much all there is to know about my own body, right? Wrong. As an avid reader of sacred sexual texts like Tantra, Taoism and Karma Sutra, I thought I was pretty up (or down) with the multitudinous and fascinating functions of my lady bits. ...more

Most of us prefer not to look at dark things. But sometimes we must, in the interests of wisdom and justice. I didn’t know what to expect when an advance reading copy of the novel Tampa by American author Alissa Nutting arrived on my desk. I hadn’t heard anything about it and, in hindsight, I’m glad. I wouldn’t want to have read this book with preconceptions. ...more

It never ceases to amaze me how much we allow our beliefs to limit our experience. And this is never truer when it comes to sex. ...more

Unless you've been hiding under a rock you probably heard the story about the US couple who saved their home by self publishing erotic stories on internet? Or about how Natasha Walker, author of The Secret Lives of Emma, is a guy not a gal? ...more

I was recently very fortunate to be invited by Simon & Schuster to travel to Sydney for a couple of awesome reasons. The first was to meet with a group of readers and do a live book club discussion of The Yearning, which was just wonderful. ...more

A lot of people poo-poo erotic romance, and romance in general, as fluffy rubbish, and in some cases they’d be right. However, as a generalisation it’s deeply wrong to make the assumption that all romance and erotic fiction is just about sexy titillation that involves little intelligence to read and less talent to write. ...more

About a month ago I ‘came out’ as a debut author at my very first spoken word event. The Wheeler Centre (God bless their enthusiasm for the written word) invited me to be part of their monthly ‘Debut Monday’ for May. ...more

New Adult is a relatively new genre, a bastard love child of a ménage between Young Adult, Romance and Erotic fiction. It features predominantly attractive 17+yo characters in college (university for Aussies) and are just starting to find their way in the adult world. ...more
