Hi Eric! Glad to help with an interview.
How did you get started with writing?
I’ve always been fascinated with stories. One of my earliest memories is asking my mother how to spell “author.” I’ve written my own for years and really can’t remember when I wasn’t writing or telling stories of all kinds. I started self-publishing after I lost a job and needed a little extra income, though I had a couple of stories up on Fictionmania before that.
Is there any particular process you use in your writing?
Depends on the project. Usually, though, I just start with the concept and focus on whatever it is that I find the most interesting, whether it’s the transformation, the reactions, oe the relationships involved. Sometimes that works better than other times. It’s a learning process even now. When a story gets over about 20k words, or when it’s a series, I keep track of characters and situations in Scrivener because of its whiteboard functions.
What’s your favorite book?
Ah geez. Which one’s your favorite family member? :). If I absolutely had to name one…well, I’d toss down a smoke bomb and ninja vanish. Ah, Ender’s Game, Kushiel’s Dart, The Stand, any Dresden book…to misquote Whitman, I’m vast and weird. I contain multitudes.
What’s your favorite book that you’ve written?
Oddly, this one’s a little easier. I wound up liking Nymphed a lot, and so did the fans, but I also have a soft spot for both Silken Jane and One Night In Bed. Nymphed just turned out very solid and was fun to write. Silken Jane is a take on the old Iron John story and it’s gotten the best feedback. I think that it helped that the story was gentle and sentimental, and there were people who identified with the mc’s desire for transformation. ONIB was me trying to write a slow acceptance of change that had been initiated on purpose, and I think that it turned out better than I’d hoped.
What’s your favorite kink to write about?
I like quick, comprehensive gender changes and the exploration of same afterward. Pretty vanilla, but there we are. Also anyone who’s read my stuff is probably aware that I’m a fan of big boobs. 🙂
Hope this helps! Good luck with the writing!
