To celebrate the anniversary of the release of Being Jade, and my upcoming writers panels - F Word: Romance @ The Wheeler Centre and Risky Fictions @ Bendigo Writers Festival - I thought I'd republish a Q&A I did for The Hoopla. Some good meaty bits to chew on here - including all the big ticket items - love, truth, infidelity and intimacy. Oh, and art!

If you're stressed and tired and too wound to sleep, count your blessings. You have many of them.

You all know the drill by now. It's the boudoir - low lighting, plush furnishings, sexy sax and a great big bed to share with another author. Hop in and hear some secrets with the very lovely and talented Juanita Kees.

Torre DeRoche is one enviable success story. Her road to publishing, like her love story, is riddled with risk taking, which is saying something for someone who's a self confessed worry-monger. I adored this book because of Torre's light-hearted honesty and because she taught this embattled warrior of relationships a thing or two about love.

I’ve arrived late to this party - which isn’t uncommon for me, I feel like I’m always playing catch up on the books everybody else read ages ago – but now I’m here I have to declare, in spite of the ranty historical pedants, what a terrific book Untamed is.

I adore stories of people following their passion around the globe and today's In Bed With guest has a ripper story. Plus a first kiss story with an older man I think we can all relate to. Glue your eyes on the screen and welcome Alli Sinclair...

A few weeks ago I received a surprise invitation to an unusual event. Naked Girls Reading. Was it a strip show with books? Was it a clever literary irony for a book launch? Was it a tongue in cheek feminist attempt to bare all that is wrong with the male dominated meritocracy in Australian publishing? Kinda, yes, on all accounts.

I received a letter the other day from an older woman expressing her disappointment at the ‘explicit descriptions of sensual activities’ in my book, The Yearning. It was the second time that week my writing had been labelled ‘porn’. It saddened me because people lump all sex writing in one shameful basket. All sex writing isn't the same and I wish people would stop trying to make it so.

You're going to need a little bit of courage for today's In Bed With because we are snuggling up with a quirky author of spacey sci-fi and paranormal erotic romance. Welcome to Imogene Nix, author of Reunion – The Assassin, Reunion – Executing Justice and Sex, Love & Aliens (Lordy, what a combination!) due out in October. Make yourself comfortable, Imogene -

Having returned on a high from the annual Australian Romance Writers Conference I wanted to write a post that captured the essence of the event. But how to give it the credit it's due? Most people think romance is all gushy and fluffy hearts and flowers. Yet this conference a huge and professional event. So I thought, go to the source - what better way to tell the story of a conference experience than through Tweets...

Welcome the sixth erotic romance writer to join me in the boudoir for a little pillow talk. Jennifer Lynne talks about emotional connection in erotic writing and a first kiss that would be enough to put anyone off kissing for a very long time!

This month we are in bed with fabulous and fascinating Regency and steampunk erotica author, Suzi Love. And her first kiss story is so sweet it will melt in your mind.

Welcome back to the boudoir which we are sharing today with Aussie erotic writer, Bianca Sarble. I met Bianca in the notorious Facebook group, Erotic Writers of Australia. She is one cheeky lady and lots of fun, so let's get under the sheets and get to know her better...

If you're after some boundary pushing then you've come to the right place. Cathleen likes a challenge in the bedroom, here's why...

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this collection of raw and honest personal memoirs about infidelity and adultery. By the time I'd finished the book I understood that, without exception, the story of infidelity/adultery is one of growth and self discovery.

‘Erotica can change the world, I really believe that.’
This statement was issued with conviction by my fellow panelist, Krissy Kneen, last Wednesday night during The Wheeler’s Centre Sex in Words event. Sounds crazy, right? How can erotica change anything, let alone the world? It’s just writing about sex, isn’t it? Maybe. Then again, maybe not.

I have so many mixed feelings about this book I hardly know where to start on this review.

I climb between the sheets with author Margareta Osborn to discover first kisses can be a curse and resisting a man for 24 hours can be considered as 'holding out'.
