Why do you write erotica and not a different genre..?

What’s on your kinky bucket list (writing or otherwise)?
Writing: to get at least one book or story out there that people talk about on public transport.
What writers do you admire/aspire to?
People who mix it up a bit: Janine Ashbless, Kristina Lloyd – and Peter Birch for bottomless depravity done well.
What is your opinion of ‘50 Shades of Grey’?
50 Shades of shit. Utterly unoriginal, atrociously written and boring. Though at least I can now mention to my son’s school that I write erotic fiction and not have them call social services.

The ‘Bold as Love’ series by Gwyneth Jones and anything by Christopher Brookmyre.

Getting named as an evil feminist misandrist influence by Fathers 4 Justice.
