She is a fun, quirky lady with a dirty imagination and fantasies that know no boundaries. She is also a devoted teacher, mother and wife who enjoys dabbling in what she calls “erotic realism”, the secret and spicy sexual life of ordinary folks that rarely find their place in erotic romance. Her tales combine the naughty, the kinky and the heart warming. It was a huge pleasure to invite Ms. Patient Lee for a little intimate chat.
Lilah: Hello Patient, thanks for taking time off your busy schedule to come and meet us. You describe your style of writing as “erotic realism”. Tell us more about it. How did you figure out that was your niche? Have you always been writing of ordinary people?
Patient: I didn’t realize there were other ways to write erotica. I never read fantasy or sci-fi, so I didn’t know I was doing something different. I haven’t even read Fifty Shades of Grey, so writing about billionaires didn’t occur to me. I started writing about my husband and me, and when I progressed into fiction, I stuck with people who were like us. Since then I’ve branched out of my comfort zone, writing about crab fishermen, gay men, homeless women, but I’m still drawn to the nitty-gritty, down-and-dirty, regular life of regular people.

Patrick Khayler was one of the first writers of erotic romance of the opposite sex I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know. He is a creator of beautiful and sensual tales, fascinating characters and plots that keep the reader hooked to his novels. Make no mistake, my guest today is not a self-proclaimed Casanova who writes his books as memoirs. He is a loving husband and father and his significant other is his greatest muse. However, he also has a kinky, liberated mind, curiosity and incredible, clinical observance of human nature, sexuality, needs, and drives. Today I’ll present you his world of awakening. I know you’re not afraid of the spotlight, Patrick, so come forward.
Lilah: I usually have ladies for the Author Spotlight but today I’d like to present to you one of the finest new male writers in the erotic romance genre. Hello, Patrick, it’s a huge pleasure to have you in here. How does it feel to be a man in a genre usually associated with female writers? Do you feel well among so many women?

Sometimes unexpected good things may come out of a simple play or game. We don’t always have to sit down with the specific idea we’d write a big great novel. The lady I’ll introduce to you today is the living proof of that. Pandora Spocks is an author of sexy contemporary romance and light BDSM whose appetite for writing woke up while she was playing. Her characters are interesting, flawed and easy to love, her writing flows easily and draws you in. In honor of her recently released Rannigan’s Redemption boxed set I decided to invite Pandora for her Author Spotlight and let the readers get to know that new but talented writer, lover of ginger haired women as heroines, travel, cruises and fellow Game of Thrones fan.

She is a wife, mother, rock chic and an author of salacious erotic tales of BDSM, spanking, humiliation and an overall debauchery. Now Felicity Brandon is also a finalist for the Golden Flogger Award given by BDSM Writers Con with her novel Submission at the Tower. I met Felicity thanks to the Wicked Pen Writers group and I’ve been very impressed with her professionalism, dedication to the craft and amazing writing style. Right now Felicity is busy editing her next epic work but she’s been kind enough to spare me a few minutes of her time and take her place at the spotlight. Come and spend some time with her. Once she enchants you, you may as well check her work on Amazon.

There was a long hiatus in the Author Spotlight Thursdays but now we’re finally back on track. My next guest after the break is a special friend of mine but that is not the reason she is here. R.B. O’Brien is a lot more than an erotic romance author. Her writing, characters, and style feel alive on the e-reader screen /and hopefully someday the paper/. She is emotional, passionate and creative, a dancer, thinker, Shakespeare and arts lover. And as you can tell from her interview R.B. is refreshingly honest about herself, her work and characters. Today you’d get a chance to spend some time with her, get to know her mind and her books of the Thorne, Natalie’s Edge and Imogen series.
