There are many novels today that have lust or sex as its major theme. Many of these novels explore the dramatic side of sex or lust, few of them actually explore the playfulness of sex and lust. Hypnotic is a novel that puts the reader through a journey that investigates the different aspects of sex, love, and lust. The novel’s protagonist, Jade, is a confident woman who instead of repressing her sexuality she embraces it wholeheartedly but with a teasing attitude. The novel traces Jade’s sexual adventures until she finds the perfect man, but things start to go wrong when something unexpected happens and suddenly intrigue and mystery taint the storyline.
In your book, Hypnotic, the erotic aspect of it is displayed as playful, why did you choose to take that approach?
For my book Hypnotic, I did make my characters erotic scenes playful in order to make the reader more comfortable with it.
What inspired you to write an erotic novel?
Writing an erotic novel was done at first solely for myself, just for fun. As I let others read it they told me I was great at making them visualize the scenes in the novel so I stuck with it.
The protagonist in the novel Jade, appears to be very self-assured but at the same time doesn’t take herself too seriously, did you emulate her from someone you know in real life or is she exclusively your creation?
Jade was created to show a strong woman who is sexually liberated, (cautiously) but she, like everyone else, has an insecure side and the need to be taking care of.
Do you only write novels with an erotic element or do you also experiment with other genres?
No, I mostly write thrillers suspense novels. My next two novels, Lovely, I Die and Sweet Revenge are considered suspense, but I do sprinkle some steamy scenes in them if needed. My response to Hypnotic has been good so I will be writing a sequel.
What are some of the authors that you like?
I don't know if he counts but I love, Alfred Hitchcock, Stephen King, James Patterson, Eric Jerome Dickey. I'm surprise I don't have any female writers in that group.
What’s the difference between Erotic Literature as opposed to “smut stories?”
I think the smut stories are sometimes endless sessions of sex with no real storyline. I think erotic stories you began to care about the characters as in my book, Hypnotic, the beginning pulls you in because of the steaminess and if that doesn't get you the suspense will.
