I believe in erotica as stories with the sex left in - it seems wrong to be able to describe dust in detail, but not sex, where relationships, characters, and motivations really do change. My Lust Bites article, Stories with the sex left in, explores this idea further.

Im influenced by 20th century womens literature (Byatt & Co, rather than Fielding & Co), lots of fantasy and sci-fi authors, occult and esoteric writings Jung, the Qabbalah, alchemy and then very loud mournful music and the right incense. All a bit intense - if it werent for Monty Python and Blackadder Id probably have killed myself by now.

My erotic genres vary fantasy, realism, fairy tales but I try to stay true to my own beliefs in what is beautiful and have my characters true to themselves. I usually impose some intellectual or symbolic system, which threads through everything. Its for myself, mostly its there if you want to find it, otherwise it just provides richer, more exact detail. (For some of the background riches to The Ten Visions, read Samhain: the time which is no time.)

I havent done everything I write. Ive never managed to raise the dead, see ghosts, speak to the gods, or despite many spontaneous attempts and bruises fly.

Oh and one word of advice: no touching. Its so much more fun thatway.
