It all started with a short story…

At the time, the now-defunct Venus Press was calling for the submission of short stories under 5.000 words for their ‘Confessions to Venus’ line, preferably in first person point of view. The idea intrigued me, and I wrote a short story based in the club On The Edge, which was the setting of another of my books with Venus Press. 

That’s how Virginia met the vampire Anando… This first part is available for free on my site and from some ebook retailers.

Of course, one short story wasn’t enough. Virginia had hinted at more encounters, and I wanted to know about them! I kept writing, even after Venus Press folded down, and the stories progressively grew longer. Each one was the occasion for Virginia to explore new aspects of her sexuality, and for the characters to grow closer and closer… much closer than they – or I – had expected. What had started as one short erotica story suddenly was a novel-length collection of 10 erotic romance installments.

And that still wasn’t enough…

My readers wanted more, and so did I. I had given Anando and Virginia a happy ending, but I’m always curious about what happens to my characters after ‘the end’. So, I wrote a sequel, Living Out of the Box. I structured it like the original, in parts that focused on new sexy ‘games,’ and with the characters playing with old friends, too.

Was it enough for my muse?

Ah! Of course not!

After a while, it started tickling me again, asking that same question once more: what happened after the story ended?

I tried to resist, but that didn’t last long, and eventually I yielded. This time, it wasn’t all about Virginia and Anando. Those friends of theirs took a new importance when one night had unexpected consequences… See here the blurb for Beyond The Edge:

As Brett Andrews, owner of the famous club On The Edge, reaches the big ‘four-O,’ he has one request and one question for his two vampire lovers, Leo and Lisa: he doesn’t want them to organize any sort of celebration for him – but he does want to know why neither of them has ever mentioned the possibility of turning him into a vampire.

The question finds an answer, and the three of them share a promise for the year to come. His request, on the other hand, is doomed from the start as they already have plans for the big day: they have a gift for him to match presents he offered each of them, and the party they planned with help from a couple of friends promises to be something special.

Vampire Anando and his human lover Virginia met at On The Edge. They are friends and occasional lovers of Leo, Brett and Lisa. When asked, they gladly accept to host the big-bash birthday party – and the private after-party, too. A good time is had by all, but the last gift is only revealed a few weeks later, to be delivered after nine months.

With both humans in love with vampires, neither expected a child in their future. As for the vampires, they knew for a fact that they’d never become parents. For all five, once the first shock has passed, decisions have to be made. Will this new adventure strengthen bonds of love and friendship, or will it tear lives apart?

The first time Virginia went to the dance club On The Edge, she only wanted to find out what a night in a vampire’s arms would be like. Anando showed her it could be much, much more than she had imagined.

Over the next few months, every time she returned he continued to stretch her imagination and the boundaries she tried to set on their relationship.

Soon, though, Anando’s limits were tested as much as Virginia’s when their sexual encounters gave way to feelings neither of them had expected.
