If you like my blog for its honest and often sentimental account of family life, then I suggest that you look away now.
I used to write erotica. I had four books published by Black Lace under the pseudonym Tabitha Flyte. This was, naturally, the days before Fifty Shades of Grey – a phenomena – I have blogged about it here: ShyEroticWriter.wordpress.com
It’s mostly me complaining about ‘stuff’. Now, that the film is coming out, I ‘spect I will complain some more.
People keep telling me to write more erotica, especially now that’s where the money is. I have to say, the truth is, my heart isn’t in the sex-bits anymore.
I still love to write – but thinking up the various positions is exhausting!
These are the books:
Tongue in Cheek
Tongue in Cheek was my first and best book. Seriously. I can’t help but point out that the title is not a mere double entendre but an awesome triple entendre! Woo. Tongue in Cheek is funny and sexy and I still slap myself on the back about the brilliant set-pieces and the wonderful twisty ending. It also is so filthy it would make E.L James blush. And PD James. And most people. Especially me.
Don’t read this one. Please. Thing is, I had just had my son, was struggling with the old breast feeding and consequently there’s a lot of howling, a lot of screaming and a lot of rock hard breasts in this book. The convoluted plot didn’t help. What was I thinking? Full Steam Ahead nearly was called ‘All hands on deck’. That wouldn’t have helped. And don’t mention the cover. Just don’t.
The Hottest Place is probably my next favourite work. A lot of memories and fantasies about wild times in Thailand. The Hottest Place is the perfect holiday read. Beaches, massages, good food, great sex…
My writing is better in Coming Round the Mountain but I dunno how hot the sex is as the storyline got a bit emotional and deep. It has spoilt the rhyme for me forever and when the children sing it I always feel a bit hmm #awkward. It was going to be called Humpty Dumpty or There was an old lady who swallowed a fly. (not really) On the other hand, I believe Coming round the Mountain has the best-sex-with-a-person-suffering-from -altitude-sickness-scene in literature, ever. It’s an absolute must for people who like snow with their sex.
You will note that i have written four books, yes, Four! In your face, trilogy writers! I have also had saucy stories published in many collections.
I also self-published a book about six years ago: My husband likes to call it ‘The Business Secrets of the Pharoahs’ – (One for the Peep Show fans). Actually, it was called A First Karaoke Songbook and it was bloody brilliant.
I still like to dream that one day, a film producer will be browsing my blog, see that book, turn it into a block buster film, and then I will go on Desert Island Discs. I still can’t decide what I will take with: I-pad or lego.
Hello Film Producer. (Waving nicely.)
