I just celebrated my anniversary and it made me start thinking. How much do my life experiences affect what I write? As a teenager, I dated other men but I met my husband by age nineteen. After dating for four years, we married and have been mostly happy ever since.
I write erotic romance and erotica. The erotica stories don’t necessarily have to have a happy ending but all my stories have a HEA. I have only one published work that has the female character divorced and starting over. In today’s society, I know divorce very prevalent but I still tend to stick with the late twenty to early thirty characters falling in love and marrying for the first time.
However, this doesn’t mean that all my relationships are m/f. I write m/f, m/m/f & m/m relationships, which doesn’t apply to my lifestyle but a girl has to have fantasies. Even one married as long as I have been.
So, do you think the relationships you write or tend to read reflect your lifestyle?
BTW, I write mostly paranormal and sci-fi erotic romance but I'm not under the delusion of being a vamp, werewolf or alien. Though at times, I'm told I am a witch.
