Nominated for the prestigious

Golden Flogger Award
BDSM Advance Category
for Gilded Cuff

We had a chance to ask her a few questions.
Feel free to ask a few of your own.

 Why did you begin writing BDSM novels?
I wanted to write a BDSM related romance novel series because I was drawn to the natural power exchange between submissives and dominants. I wanted to write stories that showed that submissives aren’t weak, but that they have the power to give their control over to the dominant partner for the enjoyment of both. I loved that it has an inherent equality in the relationship which I believe is important for a good romance story.

Do you participate in D/s activities or merely write about them?
I merely write about them. *wink*

 What does being nominated for the Golden Flogger Award mean to you?
I’m honored to be nominated for this award because it means that my story has touched readers and accurately and positively portrays the BDSM lifestyle in a way it should be represented.

Where would you like to see the BDSM genre head? How will it get there?
I would love for more people who haven’t read BDSM romances to try them. I would love to see books that have strong story lines that don’t just focus on the BDSM relationship. I think BDSM elements added in to a strong plot make a book enticing and a great read without overwhelming readers who are new the genre and I’d like to see more of that “gateway” writing with light BDSM.

Tell us a little about yourself and your writing works.
I’m an Oklahoma girl who loves to travel and write stories that captivate readers. No matter the genre, or if there’s BDSM or not, I want to write love stories that weave spells around a reader’s heart.
