The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language defines romance as:
a. A love affair.
b. Ardent emotional attachment or involvement between people; love: They kept the romance alive in their marriage for 35 years.
c. A strong, sometimes short-lived attachment, fascination, or enthusiasm for something: a childhood romance with the sea.
A mysterious or fascinating quality or appeal, as of something adventurous, heroic, or strangely beautiful: "These fine old guns often have a romance clinging to them" (Richard Jeffries).
I'll let you decide which my stories fall under.
The Auction of July 18, 1999
This is one of my more unusual stories. I watch a lot of Antique Roadshow and I often lament of how they can't do a full hour investigating the more unusual items. This story is also an attempt to screw with the format of what people expect with erotica. FYI, I almost wrote a story about Lot #8 but I think I said everything that needed to be said.
Coven of Bliss's Maypole 2001
I had this wacky idea that wouldn't it be cool to form a group of erotica writers who approached their sensuality and their creativity with a mystical reverence? Of course no one else thought it was a good idea but I did get a good story out of it.
Science fiction, bikers and sex. Does it get any better than this? The science fiction bits tend to trip most readers but those who enjoy the story list it among their favorites. This was the first story where the female character received more reader mail than I did.
This is the sweet love story between a woman and her snowman. No, really. I was delighted by how easily people accepted this premise. It gives me hope that readers want a little magic in their stories.
