Erotic romance? Me?
I’ve been writing erotic fiction ever since “City Desk,” my first erotic mystery, appeared in the January 1983 issue of Gentleman’s Companion. Beginning with that story and continuing through much of my career, my erotic fiction has been written from a male viewpoint for a male readership. These are masculine fantasies of big-busted babes who serve more as bedroom decorations than romantic interests while macho protagonists spew testosterone across the pages.
But other writing opportunities allowed me to explore additional genres. I wrote, and continue to write, women’s fiction for women’s magazines. I wrote Just in Time for Love, a young adult romance novel, and Unbridled Love: A Romance with Horse Sense for adults. Over time I learned that it was possible to include erotic scenes in my romances and romantic scenes in my erotica.
And then I completed the transition. A few years ago I started writing erotic romance. My story “Drought” appears in Delilah Devlin’s anthology Cowboy Lust and “Big Guns” appears in her forthcoming anthology High Octane Heroes. I wrote Stud (as Rolinda Hay), an erotic romance novel, and I’ve written several additional erotic romance short stories still in the publishing pipeline.
Have I stopped writing masculine fantasies of big-busted babes? Nah. But these days I like to balance my erotic writing, alternating macho erotic stories with erotic romances.
