Biography

My most recent publication is...

A contribution to the Lush Summer anthology, available on Amazon. It's about a pair of Australian marine park divers who work out a mutual adrenalin rush after a close encounter with a great white shark. It's a slow burn, with plenty of tension and heat, just perfect for a summer read. And of course, it's amongst sizzling company from some of the hottest authors on Lush, such as Buz, Poppet, MadameMolly, Liz and Papergirl, just to name a few.

I'm inspired by...

Everything. Seriously, there’s a story in absolutely everything. Whether it’s an erotic spin-off of The Walking Dead, an experience I had at an airport lounge, a line from a song, or a fleeting vision of a woman in orange pants who was walking with her young son in a car park… I daydream a lot, maybe too much, definitely. I can spiral nearly anything into a story worth ruminating on. One that sticks hard for me is a young woman playing speed chess with a homeless man on a busy street corner in Sydney, while Hurt by Johnny Cash blared from a nearby stereo. I’d just love to turn that into a story, but I’m just not sure where to go with it.

I started writing because...

I love it. I’ve always loved it. I’ve always had a wild imagination, and the ability to create my own universe and escape into it is just so appealing. As far back as I can remember, I wanted to be a writer, even before the cliché boyhood dreams of becoming a policeman or a fighter pilot. I actually imagined I'd have to sell my novels on the front lawn, like a lemonade stand. Kids...

I got in to writing erotica...

Through Penthouse Forums. They were my first exposure to the art, which after many years of appreciation, eventually had me wondering if I could write some myself, and maybe even make a few dollars on the side. I thought it might be what I needed to break my procrastination for my own writing aspirations. In looking into it with a friend, he turned me onto internet erotica. Another year or two of…appreciation, and I finally had a crack at it myself.

I started with something simple, more as an exercise than anything else. I hadn’t set out to develop a plot or the characters, or anything. It was just to see what people thought of my writing. It was a version of Sleeping Over, which even now, remains my most read story. Beginner’s luck, I suppose.

My favourite writing genre is...

A bit of everything. I don’t know that I particularly have a favourite erotic genre in terms of writing. All my stories so far are in different categories. I prefer to write something with a bit more story to it, rather than just boy meets girl, boy fucks girl, the end. I think the common thread in my writing is the focus on the female characters, even though I mainly write from the male perspective.

As a reader, I mostly enjoy the stories where women are sexually confident, and either embrace their sexuality, or surrender to it. So in that regard, I suppose I’m drawn to the group and cheating categories as an extension of that. I hope that my own writing captures that theme of female sexual empowerment to some extent. I just find it so fascinating, not to mention arousing.

I get my creative juice / story ideas from...

A mixture of fantasy and real life experience, like I imagine most writers would answer. Position of Trust and the first part of Overflow are almost entirely dreamt up, whereas Warning Order and Special Assistance are drawn heavily from my own life. Either way, I usually map out the story in my mind first, “road-testing” the good bits during periods of more solitary…reflection, you know, to make sure they’re up to it, and then I type it out.

My turn-ons are...

Pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. Fuck, I don’t know. I’m up for just about anything. I love female first person stories where the writer takes me on a journey, bringing me in on the secret, the sluttier the better. You know, the kind where you can almost imagine her lips unapologetically curled in a mischievous smirk as she tells the story? The fantasy that it could actually be true heightens the experience for me. But ultimately, I think it comes down to the quality of the storytelling. If you ask me nicely, and all that.

I'm currently working on...

Finishing off my Gothic competition entry and a fun little romp that missed the deadline for the recent Hardcore competition to blow the dust off. Then I'm planning to rework Overflow into a full length novel this year. Wish me luck!

Hmmm, life – my family, writing, travel, getting out in the sunshine. And five hours of television each day, six if there’s something good on.
Favorite Books:
Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts.

"It took me a long time and most of the world to learn what I know about love and fate and the choices we make, but the heart of it came to me in an instant, while I was chained to a wall and being tortured."

So begins this epic, mesmerizing first novel set in the underworld of contemporary Bombay. Shantaram is narrated by Lin, an escaped convict with a false passport who flees maximum security prison in Australia for the teeming streets of a city where he can disappear. Accompanied by his guide and faithful friend, Prabaker, the two enter Bombay's hidden society of beggars and gangsters, prostitutes and holy men, soldiers and actors, and Indians and exiles from other countries, who seek in this remarkable place what they cannot find elsewhere.

As a hunted man without a home, family, or identity, Lin searches for love and meaning while running a clinic in one of the city's poorest slums, and serving his apprenticeship in the dark arts of the Bombay mafia. The search leads him to war, prison torture, murder, and a series of enigmatic and bloody betrayals.

Burning slums and five-star hotels, romantic love and prison agonies, criminal wars and Bollywood films, spiritual gurus and mujahidin guerrillas---this huge novel has the world of human experience in its reach, and a passionate love for India at its heart. Based on the life of the author, it is by any measure the debut of an extraordinary voice in literature.
Favorite Authors:
I don’t know that I actually have a favourite author. If a story can keep me engaged with good writing, an interesting plot and sympathetic characters, I’m in. I find myself being more attracted to who the author is and the life they’ve led, more so than what they’ve written. It’s when their stories are drawn from their real lives that I become truly hooked. Gregory David Roberts and Andy McNab are two that immediately come to mind, and I find myself wanting to consume everything they’ve written.

I loved the Roald Dahl books that were read to me as a kid, capturing my imagination and taking me on fantastic journeys. Jack London was an easy-to-read storyteller who was among the first I read on my own. Tom Clancy was a predictable transition into my teens and indulged my adolescent interest in big boys’ toys. And Matthew Reilly and Suzanne Collins are an almost embarrassing escape into airport fiction. But for the most part, I’ll read just about anyone. Andy Weir's debut with The Martian is my most recent love.
Favorite Movies:
I’m going to admit to Bring It On. That’s right, I’m not ashamed. I stumbled across it one night, while flicking through a dismal selection on television. I’d seen the shorts for it on a video a few years earlier – remember those? Video cassettes? – and I wasn’t particularly interested. But it was the lesser of all the free-to-air evils at the time. Anyway, I really enjoyed it. It was light, it was fun, it was chock-full of attractive high school girls in limited clothing. And Eliza Dushku’s character, Missy Pantone, has to be the coolest chick ever. It had attitude, but without being bitchy. I love it.
Favourite TV Shows:
These days I find myself drawn mostly to fairly contemporary American sit-coms, like The Big Bang Theory, Friends (including the Joey spin-off), Frasier, Seinfeld, and Everybody Loves Raymond. There’s something comforting and non-threatening about them that really helps me relax and forget about the world. I’ll often go to sleep with them on in the background.

Of course, I love a good story-driven drama too, such as The West Wing, Criminal Minds, Justified, The Gilmore Girls (they speak fast, but they speak true), Supernatural, The Newsroom, and The Walking Dead. I’m a great binger, and I’m really enjoying the evolution towards the streaming format of watching TV, with Downton Abbey our most recent foray. That's right, and I loved it.
Favorite Music:
Mainly top 40s radio in the car. Pretty boring and mainstream, I know. I like the more conventional melodic sound. But my wife is dragging me kicking and screaming into the present day, with her frequent downloads and constant retuning the radio to Triple J. I’m quite partial to some more alternative music, some Aussie hip hop, the occasional dance or dubstep number, and a little country too. A bit of everything really. The music that stands out though is the stuff with a political message. Check out the videos down below if you’re interested.

I'm definitely in favour of Option D. I want honest and constructive feedback that's going to help me grow as a writer. And in that spirit, I'll just point out that there's a small typo in that option. <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/evil6.gif" alt="evil4">

To that end, I try and offer constructive feedback on stories myself. I do it publically so that other writers reading the story and comments might hopefully find something useful in it too.

Introduce the title of your story: Banging for Roof
Genre/Category: Cheating
Provide the link: https://www.lushstories.com/stories/cheating/banging-for-roof.aspx

1. What first inspired you to write this particular story?

This was originally my idea for the Money Talks competition back in July last year, with Wendy’s lack of money obviously the premise of the story. Unfortunately life got in the way, and I missed the deadline. But toying with the experience versus material possessions theme as I was, I got a rush of blood and figured I could shoehorn it into the New Experiences competition in April. But life again…

The idea itself is drawn from a colleague of mine who came to town for a training course from one of our interstate sites. She was going to stay with a friend from our office, meeting her in a bar after work. Inevitably the friend didn’t show, so our wayward traveller picked up a guy and let him take her home for the night. I only wish I’d stopped off for happy hour that evening.

2. How did you come up with these characters?

I just love Wendy. She’s a real wolf in sheep’s clothing. In looking at how to get this average, middleclass, married mother to paratroop into Melbourne, I had to rev up her character more than the twenty-two-year-old colleague of mine. She needed to have done it before to even consider it a possibility. And her other dalliances gave her part of the justification to do it again. But it’s the frustration with her husband and the doubts about where their life is heading that gets her over the line, and more interestingly, fuels her journey through the story.

God, Michael’s who I wish I was! Not the cheating ass bit, but someone actually brave enough to follow through on the bullshit we all talk about. A little older and a little wiser, he’s based on me… the future me. I’ve enslaved myself in debt and consumerism, and I’m not happy. But I think I’ve discovered the way out. While I still have to figure out how to get through that hole in the fence, Michael’s actually done it. He’s free.

3. How does it differ from some of your other stories?

This one’s in third person for a start. Those familiar with my work know I usually write first person from the male point of view. It’s also from Wendy’s perspective. That threw up a few challenges for me, trying to capture her thoughts and feelings as events unfolded, rather than just observing her from a man’s viewpoint.

The other thing I tried this time was shifting between past and present tense. The setup in the bar and the flashbacks to the night afterwards were in my comfort zone of the past. But I wrote the action that unfolded the next morning in present tense. It was partly to make the story more structurally interesting and create a better distinction between the two different time periods. The main reason though was to bring the shower scene into the here and now, rather than an account of what’s already happened. I find third person detaches the reader from what’s going on, so present tense was an attempt to compensate for that.

4. What was the most challenging thing about writing this piece?

I could say that actually writing it was, given it’s been in a holding pattern for nine months. But the ending was the bit that gave me the most grief. And that’s not just finishing it!

It’s a pretty fun and impulsive story, as it kind of has to be. But as I went, developing wendy’s character to justify her behaviour, I found the tone of this shifted for me into something more sincere. My original intention for Michael’s hand to slip in the heat of the moment in the shower, with a few fingers unexpectedly sliding up her asshole, didn’t quite fit – pardon the pun. I like to inject a bit of humour into my stories, but it just didn’t suit this one.

So how to finish it? I didn’t want to spew out another saccharine cliché, as I have so many times before. I had to try and figure out what would be true to Wendy’s character. While I was brief – more so than I wanted to be, but damn, I just had to get it done – I think I got it right.

5. Anything else you want to tell us about it?

This was originally going to be called Per Diem, in honour of Wendy’s travel allowance being the genesis of the story. And given where the tone of this has ended up, I actually prefer this as the title. But a very insightful friend suggested that a sexy title, more so than the category, is likely the reason for a high number of views on a story. So I thought I’d give Banging for Roof a try. It’s perhaps more crass than sexy, but I’m not writing Shakespeare here, so worth a shot.

As always, I’d love it if you’d check it out and let me know what you think.

Wendy scowled at the screen of her smartphone, the inane smiley-face emoticons fuelling her anger. Her blood boiled.

Neither of us spoke. The only sound was the foaming waves washing in around us. I held my hands in my lap beneath the froth, willing them to be still.

I have never seen anything more orange than an African sunset. On that day, it was more surreal than any other, before or since. It was as if the entire sky seared with the bloodshed it reflected.
