How did you start writing erotica?
I started writing romance as a form of escapism from the pressures of my day job and I think I was attracted to that particular genre due to the happy endings that it tends to bring. I found reading and writing this variety of story was a soothing antidote to the pressures of career stress. In terms of the erotic element, I didn’t really consider myself an erotica writer during this process. My stories are romances and I found myself preferring to portray the love scenes on the page rather than using a fade to black approach. I think this is because I felt doing this enhanced the connection between the reader and the characters and heightened empathy for the characters’ emotions.
