Background Information

I was born in the north of England in 1962. My parents always encouraged me to follow artistic pursuits and from childhood, I never stopped painting and writing.

 
I first joined the Black Velvet Seductions family as a cover artist, producing the original artwork for Toy’s Story: Acquisition of a Sex Toy, The Crimson Z, The Stir of Echo, Rally Fever, Temporally Yours, and most recently Night Angel.
 
I received the title of published author in November of 2006 with the publication of my first short story The Anniversary which was published in The Crimson Z, a paranormal anthology. The Anniversary is an emotional paranormal story about a couple, very much in love, who are separated on their anniversary.  Though the separation occurs through no fault of their own it appears permanent, till the heroine learns that a mystical piece of jewellery given to her by the hero many years before will allow the hero and heroine one evening together each year on the anniversary of their separation. I’ve been pleased by the many positive comments, the story has received. Most of the comments include the sentiment that the reader is surprised that a BDSM story would tug at their emotions the way that The Anniversary does.
 
My second story The Key was published on the web in February 2007 as a part of Black Velvet Seduction’s Valentines celebration. Though it is no longer available on the web it is packaged with my third story Temporally Yours. Like all books published by Black Velvet Seductions Temporally Yours is available in paperback, ebook, and Kindle format.
 
Temporally Yours is a lighter story than The Anniversary but it still means a lot to me. Time plays a pivotal role in Temporally Yours, and it plays a pivotal role in my own life as well. Time is something that I never have enough of in my own life. I am by nature a work-aholic, working 80-100 hours most weeks. I love what I do, it is as simple as that. When I go on holiday I take work with me, either art or writing, these days usually both. I am used to multitasking and normally have a couple of writing projects on the go and at least two art projects all running simultaneously. I find It helps my creativity to switch between projects.  

 
Temporally Yours quite simply stems from the idea … what if we could stop time … eliminate the things that don’t matter as much and live the important moments free of time constraints. This is the promise afforded Susan and Patrick in Temporally Yours…except there is no free lunch…everything has a cost.
  
My fourth published piece is a short domestic discipline story, In The Driving Seat, which debuted at Black Velvet Seductions in their Erotic Relationship Stories area. In The Driving Seat asks the question…can a marriage really be ruined by a wife’s excessive spending…and can it really be aided by the addition of domestic discipline (spanking).  The story is available on it's own but is also available in Spanked!  a domestic discipline anthology also available from Black Velvet Seductions.
 
My art and writing often embraces Dominance and submission. Because of my art and writing I’ve had the privilege to know a number of people in this lifestyle and they have never given me the impression that they were anything other than normal people who have different tastes. I believe that relationships that have their foundation in dominance and submission, are just like most other relationships. They all seem to suffer from the same problems and hassles about work, money and everything else our society throws at us. At their very best, D/s relationships are beautiful relationships filled with respect, trust and love and this is at the heart of both my writing and my art work.   
 
All of my writing is available for purchase at Black Velvet Seductions (http://www.blackvelvetseductions.com)
 
My art work (much of which is erotic) can be seen at http://www.swage.net
