“That sex was the most fun I’ve ever had without laughing.”
This movie quote came from the film Annie Hall. The character who said it was right—sex is fun, which is why I sometimes like my story heroines to laugh when they’re in a flirty mood. Sex doesn’t have to be so serious all the time, does it?
I feel that way about vampires and shape-shifters too. They don’t have to be dark and scary every minute. Shape-shifters in their human forms are women just like us. They have angst. They have highs and lows. And sometimes they’re downright funny without meaning to be. That’s why I wrote my steamy short stories “The Crystal Altar” for Girls Who Bite and “She’s Furry Yiffy” for She-Shifters with a bit of tongue-in-cheek.
As a straight woman, married and monogamous for a quarter century, writing paranormal stories about night creatures and duel heroines challenged my creativity in exciting new ways. Vampire and shape-shifter characters also offered greater opportunities for unique settings. In “The Crystal Altar” I sent my heroines to a vampire birthday party inside a crystalline cave, millennia old. “She’s Furry Yiffy” is set in an X-rated Furries and Plushies convention. What better place for a lonely shape-shifter to mingle and hook-up?
Girls Who Bite and She-Shifters turned into the most fun I’ve ever had writing sexy fiction. I’m pleased and proud to be part of these groundbreaking anthologies. I hope you’ll visit me on my website at www.adeledubois.com or my blog at http://adeledubois.wordpress.com and check out my list of books. I’m also on Facebook and Twitter and would enjoy seeing you there.
As my character Maya says in She’s Furry Yiffy, “I’ve been waiting for you to find me.”
