From the unabashedly deranged mind of
How often does an author retire, then decide fifteen years later that maybe there's more to say?
At least once!
'Jo and Lexi'
(FF, cons, 1st)
Published in 1999 but written in the early 1980s, this is, as intended, a brief, straight-up stroke piece for men and women who enjoy a little girl-on-girl action. No plot otherwise.
"Sexy, sensual, hot!"
In 1999, I finally read one too many stories that would otherwise have featured horny college sluts but were aged down to manufacture 'pedoerotica'. Fuck, I can do better than that! turned into a desire to do better than that.
"Write what you know," they say, so I took my one true why-didn't-I lament and made her a did.
"Well written, clever, and absorbing."
'I'm Not a Little Girl Anymore!'
(Mg12, inc, cons)
My next challenge: to write from the girl's point of view. Readers' reaction was positive--mostly.
"That's fucked-up shit!"
'Bill's Not-So-Secret Urge'
(MM+, Mb, cons, cum)
"Bisexuality immediately doubles your chances for a date on Saturday night", according to Woody Allen. For me, it meant more fodder for a sex story.
The reminiscences all happened. No exaggerations. Seriously.
"[A] very inspiring and hot story."
Originally a subplot of 'My Neighbor', it served only as a diversion. Later, I made it into a short diversion.
"Damn! Fine writing ... a triumph."
(MFgg12, inc, cons)
No, I did not get my inspiration from anything starring Hayley Mills. Or Lindsay Lohan. Or anything else that might alert any lawyers from the House of Mouse.
Besides, lots of people do 'twins-split-at-birth' stories. Really. [peeks through blinds]
"A masterpiece of fiction."
'A Letter from Your Worst Nightmare'
(Mg+, inc, cons, politics)
This was to be my swan song. A few couldas, a few might'ves, all in bits and pieces in my head--until I read a political rant by another author and finally crafted the envelope.
"A work of the highest caliber."
'Good Things Cum'
(Mg10, Mf12, mf, cons, voy)
... in small packages--and, sometimes, fifteen years after hanging it up.
Not quite a why-didn't-I but certainly a should've in hindsight, a very real inspiration finally came together and drew me out of retirement.
"As ever, your work is in a completely different league."
'Fire and Snow'
(Mg11, Mf16, mc, cons, sci-fi [future])
Finally tackling a most logical topic (grin), I wrote a short, sweet little tale about a starship captain and a rescued girl that I thought hit all the right notes. Following dozens of requests to continue the story despite a certain ending, an idea hit me, and this three-act play is the result.
"The tone, the emotion, the acts, the wicked sense of humor ... just perfect."
