Golden Flogger Award nominee
speaks out

 

Why did you begin writing BDSM novels?
In my mind, I began writing love stories involving BDSM in 1996. But my stories didn’t make it to paper until 2011. It got to the point where the Doms in my head demanded to be heard.

What does being nominated for the Golden Flogger Award mean to you?
At first I was in shock I’d be considered. I’m a fairly new writer. I’m deeply honored to be listed as a nominee alongside some truly great authors. Being nominated means someone took me seriously! Oh, and I am very serious about writing.

What is the hardest part of writing your novel?
The hardest part was making sure my hero wasn’t really a “chick with a dick.” My first drafts often include aspects of men that I wish were true. But that’s what editing is for – stripping out the impossible fantasy and keeping in the believable fantasy.

Tell us a little about yourself and your writing works.
I’ve worked in the PR business for 30 years, and hope to retire soon. Writing about love, lust and BDSM is much more enjoyable. Plus, I expect to write seven books in my Elite Doms of Washington series. Who has time to work? (I don’t consider writing “work,” per se. It’s too much fun.)

Each Elite Dom book will center on one Dom (and one Domme), and share their journey to find love and that perfect submissive or Dominant mate. I tend to write very plot-heavy books, I like a lot of action with my deep POV. Yes, I go through a lot of drafts!

When not writing or making my clients look good, I love to dance (burlesque), hike in the woods behind our house, and play with my furry child, a little Westie. He’s actually the head oElizabeth SaFleur, BDSM Writers Conf the household. Talk about a Dom.

Will you be attending BDSM Writers Con or other events we can meet you at?
My husband and I are trying hard to come back to BDSM Writers’ Con this year. We have a scheduling conflict, but I’m working on winning that battle. I’ll also be at the RT Booklovers convention this year in Dallas this May. I hope to see everyone at both!
