The book that changed my life
A Primer For Star-Gazers. I found this book in my high school library, and kept it checked out for two years, until I could order my own copy. It allowed me to learn the night sky like I knew the back of my hand, and all the names of the stars. This started my lifelong love of science in general and astronomy in particular.
What are you currently reading
In my attache, I am carrying, "A World Lit Only by Fire", an amazing and mind-blowing snapshot of the decades around the year 1500. If you think my fiction is sexy, you need to understand what people of 16th Century Europe were REALLY doing! I'm also reading, "Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors" by Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan.
I'm inspired by...
astronauts, mountain climbers, teenagers who sail around the world.
I started writing because...
I wanted to be a science fiction writer. Also, I wanted to entertain people and give them new ideas to think about. And third, I realized that making my readers very horny was a fun way to entertain others. LOL
Aside from writing, what occupies your time
I have a full time job as a technical writer and engineer. I love to cook, travel, and play with cats.
How did you get in to writing erotica?
I discovered erotica at the age of 15, when a kid in high school discovered his dad's stash of hard-core paperback sex novels, and began passing them around. Then, more than 10 years ago, I bumped into alt.stories.sex and alt.stories.incest on USENET. I was hooked. (and I got my girlfriend hooked on them, too!) But I also learned how difficult it was to find GOOD erotica. So, I decided to write my own.
What's your favourite writing genre and why
Science fiction. The first books I ever read were juvenile science fiction. I loved the fact that some of them actually explained REAL science.
Where do you get your creative juice/story ideas from?
Partly from my own life. I grew up in a different culture then we have today. As a youth, I was happily seduced (the modern word is "molested") by a male orderly in a hospital, my favorite aunt and a middle-aged woman who was one of my high school teachers. When I was in college, I was a "hippy" for a while and encountered girls and boys who were very sexually active.
What are your turn-ons?
I would have to say breasts! I love women who are sexually forward and aggressive. I'm turned on by people who are comfortable discussing masturbation. The idea of incest, in all of its forms, is a strong turn-on for me because, I think, it is so taboo and "forbidden". Black women are a big turn-on, because (1) I've only enjoyed one in my life, and (2) having been raised in the South, I have this vestige of a feeling that they are "forbidden" to me.
What are your turn-offs?
Pain and cruelty in any form are major turn-offs. Injustice is also a turn-off.
Music I frequently listen to
Classic Rock and Roll. Blues. The jazz of Miles Davis. Light Classical Music.
My favourite work of art is
hahahaha... the Eiffel Tower!
Definately Blade Runner! Other faves are, Avatar, Julie and Julia, Ironman, The Bridges of Madison County, Pretty Woman, Girl With the Pearl Earring, Elizabeth, 300, Up, Monsters Inc.
Which websites do you regularly visit
space.com, cnn.com, lushstories.com, bigheadpress.com, sinfest.net
What would be a perfect weekend for you
Driving through backroads in the Colorado mountains and canyons.
Ideal holiday destination
Anywhere in northern Europe. Amsterdam.
At home I cook
almost everything! I do roasts and chops and chickens and casseroles and stir-frys and keylime pie.
The hardest thing I've ever done was
spend six months unemployed after a massive layoff.
Most surprising thing people could find out about you
I am a world-class whistler. And I mean music, not bird-calls.
I don't like talking about...
the spiritual abuse of my early religious training.
What I find amusing is
that everybody lies about sex, but everybody wants to believe what everybody else says about sex.
What I don't find amusing is
most people would rather be "right" all the time, rather than be happy and loved.
If I wasn't me I'd like to be
Ima's father in "How I Became the Family Slut". LOL
I often wonder...
what it would be like to live in a society where there was no sexual suppression at all, where anybody could have sex, or masturbate, anywhere, any time, without offending anyone. And if you know of such a place, could you please tell me how to get there?
Thanks Buddybear for you time. We thoroughly recommend you have a read of Buddybear's work.
