Jasmine Benedict is the pen name of a girl who very few would suspect writes erotica. She is quiet, plain and unassuming, and although most people know that she loves to write, only a chosen few are aware of exactly what scribbles from the end of her pen or tippety-taps from her fingertips on a late night laptop keyboard.
Jasmine has been writing for as long as she can remember and has always dreamed of being a published author. When she was a youngster, it was all prancing ponies, foxes with the power of speech and magical flying unicorns, but as she grew up, her ideas did too and she discovered a deep interest for exploring the complexities of human feeling through her stories. Jasmine is a lover of classic literature and enjoys emulating the drama and high emotion of her favourite novels, whether she is writing historical or modern fiction herself.
With this penchant for drama and emotion in mind, it isn’t surprising that Jasmine has gravitated towards the subject matter of relationships, and sex in particular. Where, after all, is drama or emotion more alive than in the heady, confusing, all-consuming, sometimes utterly shattering rollercoaster ride of lust and love? Jasmine has been exploring the ups and downs of this joyride through fiction for almost half of her life now, from the tentative early teens to the slightly less tentative mid-twenties, but it was only in 2011 (thanks to the encouragement of some wonderfully supportive friends) that she began to submit her work for publication and had her first story included in an Xcite anthology.
Ultimately, Jasmine hopes to continue pursuing her dream of writing as more than just a pastime, and above all else, she hopes that people enjoy what they read while she does.
