Kinky Chat with Willow Brooks


Nominated for our prestigious Golden Flogger Award,
author Willow Brooks shares why she started writing
BDSM novels and a few more kinky tidbits.

 

Do you participate in D/s activities or merely write about them?
I’m happy to say that my husband and I actually do practice a D’s lifestyle, and have done so for approximately six years. I’m very willful and bossy. It’s easy for me to take control of almost any situation. I thought I couldn’t help being overly controlling, seeing I come from a long line of assertive women. The battle for control in our household became one that neither  me nor my husband could win. He’s just as dominating as I am, with the added benefit of loving hard while being tough.

My husband started texting me while I was at work one day. He started asking me strange questions such as, “How would you feel if I said that I’m going to start spanking you?” At the first I thought my husband had went and lost his natural born mind! The more I thought on it, I remembered a book I had read a year or so prior called, Maryanne. At that point I got very interested. The last text my husband sent to me said, “Wait for me in our bedroom when you get off of work, and be ready to talk about doing things a little different.” That was the beginning of the end to our madness. I didn’t have to  worry about getting the lifestyle wrong in my real life, because my husband set the rules, and I agreed to most of them. We don’t do things exactly the way you hear or read about in D’s books and blogs, we found what works for us, and that’s what we stick to.

Where did you get your information on this lifestyle?
In the beginning I did much Internet surfing on domestic discipline, and BDSM. It wasn’t long before I started digging into how-to books. When how-to books were not sufficient enough, I started reading domestic discipline and BDSM novels. It didn’t take me long at all to become addicted to them as my drug of choice.

What does being nominated for the Golden Flogger Award mean to you?
This nomination means a great deal to me. It’s an honor to be nominated for something so precious as a prestigious award for a lifestyle that is still not vastly accepted. It means even more to me, because my book not only have hardcore spankings written throughout it, but it is also a  small reflection of my life and who I am; being that I’m black with a husband that’s white, and we honestly live a consensual D’s lifestyle.

Do you conduct any advocacy work in this lifestyle or is it strictly fiction base for you? If so, what?
As of right now, I consider my writing to be strictly fictional. Although the story reads real, it is a bit over the top.  That’s not to say that conducting advocacy work is not a little ways off in my future.

Where would you like to see the BDSM genre head? How will it get there?
Although certain books and entertainment has been accused for setting the acceptance of BDSM in motion, I firmly believe that many people do not understand the true lifestyle of BDSM. Like most things unknown, people are afraid of it. They do not understand the trust, care, and benefits of this sub-culture way of life. I liken it to needing good foods to eat in order to remain healthy and strong. Some people need to dominate or submit to feel mentally or emotionally healthy and strong; as long as the participants involved are well informed before they consent, and as long as the practice is safe. I would love to see more of this lifestyle on the big-screen, television series, and in as many books as we can write.  The way we’re going to get there is by connecting with as many people as possible through books, blogs, word of mouth, and television. We have to take a stand and not back down. (You like tennis, I like being tied and spanked).

What is the hardest part of writing your novel?
For me, the hardest part of writing is finding the time to do it. Not only do I work full time, but I also do fundraisers, take care of a large family, and I am involved in programs that help people who cannot help themselves. Therefore, by the time I get settled down, I’m pooped and falling to sleep with my fingers on the keys of my laptop.

Willow has always known from a young adult that she was infatuated with the characteristics of strong men with heavy hands. For years she thought she was alone with this type of infatuation, until she happened upon the words, “Domestic Discipline” while surfing the Internet. Coming from a long line of strong assertive women, she felt pressured to keep this kink to herself, that was until her husband got fed up with her bossiness, and truly introduced her to a good long spanking that changed everything.

She enjoys reading Dark Erotica, Domestic Discipline, spanking romances, and BDSM novels along with Mail Order Bride westerns in her not so sparing time. She also loves for her sexy Alpha/Antihero characters to be overbearing, dominating, and brooding with strict rules that will get the heroine’s bottom spanked, none to gently.

Willow has been writing for several years simply to satisfy her own personal taste. She finally decided to publish one of her novels for readers with like antihero, D’s taste. Her books are for readers who are not afraid of the author pushing the envelope much further than a simple spanking.

Willow is definitely a dubious sex kind of woman. If and when she writes a virgin’s story, it’s not always going to be sweet and gentle, because sometimes she likes to write it rough and hard.
