This week it’s my pleasure to introduce to you Sorcha Black one of our BDSM WRITERS CON workshop presenters. I don’t know about you, but I think she looks like a young Angelina Jolie. Maybe they’re related? Who knows? What I do know is that Sorcha is sharing her knowledge and co-hosting a workshop during BDSM Writers Con 2014. To learn more, read below.
Sorcha Black is the co-author of the Badass Brats series and writes about kinky bisexual women in poly relationships. Originally a fantasy writer, she started writing romance after meeting two nefarious authors on the internet. Sorcha enjoys tattoos and foul language.
How did you get into writing BDSM romance?
I’m not really sure. There I was one day, writing a fantasy novel that had some kink scenes, when suddenly I was smacked over the head by two romance authors who demanded I co-author a book with them. They were mean! Evil! Relentless! Poor, innocent fantasy writer that I was, I had no way of fending off their nefarious influence. They told me that if I wanted to maintain at least some of my innocence, I would do what they said. So I wrote the book with them, and did crits for them, and beta read for them. Leia and Cari call me their writing sub, but they didn’t give me a safeword. This writing thing is dub con, at best. 😉
What is your favorite book and why?
One Fish, Two Fish by Dr. Seuss. I can recite most of it by heart, which is always a selling point in literature for me.
What is your writing process?
Well, I can’t drink coffee. That being said, usually I start by hiding – I have several children that I need to hide from if I’m going to write uninterrupted for even a few minutes. From there, I generally stare at the blank screen on my computer for a while, then switch to Facebook, where my friends entertain me, then I run out of time. I do that repeatedly, for a week or two, then suddenly I’ll write a 20 page sex scene over two days. It’s not the most effective way to get a book done, but it’s all I’ve got. I’ve also been known to write brilliant sentences on scraps of paper at red lights. Occasionally getting honked at makes me feel pretty.
Why do you write so many books with co-authors?
Writing is like sex to me, in that respect. It’s more fun with a partner. Oh wait! And they make me! Yeah. *blinks innocently.
What books do you have planned for the future?
Currently, I’m working on the next Badass Brats book, The Dom with the Sex Zombies. I’m also in edits for my first fantasy novel, Ein, which features a poly BDSM relationship. After those are done, I have several other projects clamoring for my attention.
