I have been asked questions about where I get my ideas from or why I wrote a specific book or even about the characters in one of my books. I thought this week I would tackle a few of them. Starting with...
Well, are you ready for TMI? I have been a lover of books since before I could read. I love the
- scent of them
- the feel of the pages under my fingers
- the creak of the binding opening
- the way a book that knows me turns to exactly the page I wanted
- the pure sensuality of holding a book in my hands
- the whisper as each page is turned
- I could go on but I'm turning myself on
I read my first erotic story when I was very young and now that I look back, books themselves had the ability to turn me on. So, I guess it was just natural that when I got my first job at a library, that sex would come into it sooner or later. I was working on the 3rd level - the Law Library of the university I was going to at the time - and (if you have read Britta's Punishment, this is going to sound very familiar) I was up there one day putting the books away. Nobody was around and one thing led to another...
Have I mentioned I love to masturbate? Well... I am sure you can put two and two together. I was interrupted by a man on the other side of the aisle looking up something and staring at me. *snicker* As my arm was underneath my clothing, I have no idea how much he saw or if he even knew what I was doing. But by his expression? I think he knew something was up.
Go forward twenty years and I was working at another library. Once again all those same desires came to me and that was when I actually realized that libraries turned me on. So when I started publishing my works in eFormat, writing erotic fiction with a library as its core just seemed natural.
So... sorry you asked? *grins*
Tomorrow I will answer the question How did I come up with Blake & Dusty?
