About me

Prior to writing erotica, I wrote roleplaying game rules and supplements for Steve Jackson Games' GURPS roleplaying game system. I wrote several long magazine articles for GURPS, as well as a couple of magical systems.

I began writing erotica a few years ago on chyoo.com, a choose-your-own-sex-adventure site, where authors start stories and other contributors can take the story in any direction they desire. Choose-your-own-adventure stories had their roots in roleplaying games, so this seemed a natural fit

Writing in this style was pretty easy, since the amount of work that was acceptable to a thread of a story was anywhere from 100 to 1200 words, a pretty small writing unit. Being able to contribute just the next step in the action to a longer story was something I could do, without needing to finish a whole story.

After gaining some confidence there, I took some of my pieces of stories and wrote them into complete stories, which I had accepted at literotica.com, the rich big sister erotica site to chyoo.com.

When I decided I needed some real critiquing of my stuff, I joined the Erotica Readers and Writers Association, an online writer's group where one can discuss the process of writing, as well as submit their work to critique. Each month, they have a theme weekend, where stories fitting the theme are eligible for small prizes. I have been a member since December 2006.

I am also a member of the Erotic Author's Association (a writers support group), Desdmona's Fish Tank (another erotica workshop), and the Minnesota Speculative Fiction Writers (the largest and most active speculative fiction writing Meetup.com group).
