As most people will know I read Fifty Shades of Grey, Whilst chatting with my sister, she asked me if I had read it, well of course I had. Everyone was reading it. She challenged me to write, as she said that I had always been very creative and I should have a go. At first I laughed at her and said don’t be so stupid. I then saw a blog which was saying that Fifty Shades had fallen short of what people thought the book was about, BDSM. I started doing a little research on BDSM and I quickly realised that maybe something had been missed; BDSM is mainly about “The art of control”. Anyone can bully, control or take advantage of someone who has a vulnerable demeanour, be it man and women. A sad fact of life. But being in control equally is a different matter or seems to be, this is what I started to realise when I started getting into what I was reading, and yes, just the same as conventional relationships you have good and bad in both. People taking things to the nth degree, Unfortunately for BDSM, people only seem to hear the real bad press it collates from people that are extremists within the practice, and not the other side of trust, respect, and equal control on both side between consenting adults, which is what I have tried to portray within Introducing Charlotte, (I hope I have done it justice). So if anything the reason for me writing erotic fiction was mainly curiosity and a bit of fun to amuse my sister to while away the longs dark nights of winter.
