I enjoy writing erotic multicultural, urban, and romantic suspense stories. My first published story, ‘Mandatory Overtime’ is featured in Zane’s Eroticanoir Anthology: Caramel Flava, which made the New York Bestsellers List in its first week. I’m currently working on two urban erotica novels and various short story projects to keep my wordsmithing sharp.
Why do I write erotica and what do I love best about it?
I write erotica because it comes naturally to me. And it can be incorporated into just about any genre. I’m a very, very, very sexual being. To the point where I want to share what goes on in my mind. And what better way to share erotic thoughts (without getting into trouble) than to put in the form of an erotic story. What I like best about erotica is that you can blend reality and fiction into a story and still call the whole thing fiction. As a writer, some of the best parts of a story come from your life experiences. Whether you were involved directly or indirectly in those experiences. An when you have the ability to mesh the these with your imagination your finished product comes off as something readers can really delve into and becoming one with your story. And at the end of the mix of it all, no one knows what was pulled from reality and what wasn’t. All that really matters is that the reader comes away entertained that and thoroughly satisfied.
One of my favorite stories I’ve written was a short story titled, The Gerswins, which is part of an anthology called SWING! Adventures in Swinging by Today’s Top Erotica Writers.
This story is about an interracial race couple with busy lives that contemplates getting back into the swing of things (pun intended). It’s been a while for this sexy hard working couple. Somehow a swing club membership card (that still has some life in it) is found and that’s when things start to get rolling with this busy couple who barely have time for each other, but deep down really want to put the spark back into their sexual lives. What a way to kick things off than to make use of live membership card at your favorite swing club. Here’s an excerpt from my story ‘The Gerswins’:
“…Anyway, Mikel, it just so happens that last month I came across our membership card to the Hedo Den Swing Club. And guess what?”
“Our membership doesn’t expire until next month. Actually about three weeks after your birthday.”
“So you withheld this important information from me, why?”
“Well, like I said I didn’t think either of us would be entertaining the thought to even do this anymore.”
“Okay. Enough said. Let’s go for it! I want us to go swinging on my birthday next week,” he said with assurance.
Zuri looked at his childish behavior, shook her head and smiled. “Mikel, what do you think the chances are of your librarian friend buying into this lifestyle. You know it’s not for everyone. And how do you suggest we approach her?”
“I haven’t thought that deep about it since we’re just now discussing it. But I think we might have a chance.”
“What do you mean?”
“Well, she’s been checking me out.
“That’s her job, Mikel. To check you out,’ she said cunningly.
“Don’t be funny. You know what I mean.”
“Big deal. I’m always checking men out.”
“And this makes her a swinger.”
“No, it makes her at the very least a potential swinger. She doesn’t just give me a passing glance. I can feel her eyes.”
“You can feel her eyes ripping your clothes as she checks out your books that you’re so not reading. This gives her swing potential?” she said laughingly.
“Ha! Funny. You’re not a man so you wouldn’t know?”
“Oh, thank the heavens I’m not a man. You have it so rough getting eye-fucked by a pretty librarian.”
“Yeah, it’s just one of the perks that come with my library card.”
You can get a copy of Swing! on Amazon. Enjoy a great read! Available on Kindle!
What am I working on now?
I’ve been working on an erotic novella. I may go as far making a full novel if it keeps going the way it’s going. This project is basically of the nature where a Cougar (an over 40 woman still in the prime of her life) has every intention of devouring a young delicious man for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and sometimes as a late night snack. Her prey literally has no choice in the matter. Well, of course, he does, but when you have a hot as hell cougar with the stamina of a twenty-five-year-old on the prowl all logic might just as well go out the window.
Thank you! I hope you’ll enjoy my blog.
