Ann is a best selling Erotic Author, specializing in quality forced feminization fiction! Over 60 No. 1 sellers!
When she was young, there wasn’t much TV/TG fiction out there, and often she found that what was out there, didn’t really speak to her. So she started writing her own stories. Now she shares them with you.
What was your first book that you wrote?
The first erotic book I wrote was The Writer’s Secret, though I’d played with other short stories before that, and I’ve published some non-erotic fiction before that too.
When did you start writing erotic books and what was your inspiration for it? / Why did you decide to become an author?
What made me decide to become an author was that I just wasn’t finding stories I liked. I found some here and there, but it was unusual to find anything that really satisfied me. I’m a fan of what you could call “intimate” forced feminization. But most of what I found was either too harsh and uncaring, leaned too far into fantasy, or wasn’t forced. In fact, most of what I found was either purely sentimental or simply cruel – and that’s when you could even find actual feminization, because a lot of the stories I found had nothing to do with feminization except maybe a single reference to panties. So I started writing my own. Then I discovered that you could publish stories, so I started publishing my stories.
What has been the high point of your career?
There have been many actually. Finishing my first book. My first email from a fan. My first email from a fan who said they wrote fan fiction based on a book of mine. But probably the most incredible was when Grounded in Heels hit 20,000 copies sold. That felt like an amazing achievement to me.
What are your favourite stories to write, especially as your back catalog is so diverse?
I actually like variety. I don’t want to do one thing over and over. So I’ve done everything from dominant wives to mousy wives to secretaries to guys who trap themselves, to more fantastic things like secret schools. I think my favorites to write though, are the ones where the guy actually starts to grow breasts and the such and doesn’t realize it until it’s too late.
Who do you think are your biggest fans, your core readership? How would you describe them?
I actually do polling in my newsletter about this and it’s pretty fascinating what I’ve discovered. I always figured my audience would be pretty similar to me, but they aren’t. They range across all ages. Some are cross-dressers. Some are transgender. Some are gay with an interest in feminization. Some are just into female domination. So I’ve asked them what draws them to this “hobby” and the answers have been incredibly varied… everyone’s reasons are different. But at the core, I think my readers enjoy female domination that involves a level of intimacy mixed with feminization or emasculation. They love women who tease.
What makes your heart race as a reader, and also a writer?
Those scenes where a woman has absolute control because you know you couldn’t deny her anything in that moment.
What is your favorite book that you have written?
My favorite book is the Making of Danielle. This is my take on the old trope of the young man sent to his rich “aunt”, who ends up being feminized. It’s the longest story I’ve written and, to me, it just works on every level. It’s exciting. It has an amazing atmosphere. Great characters. It’s full of tense moments and twists, and it ends beautifully.
How do you keep your ideas and stories fresh?
I always try to do new things with my stories, like setting challenges for myself: can I write a story where the characters do X or Y or don’t do X? This really helps to make each book fresh and unique.
Do you have a writing routine and what’s the secret to a strong title and great cover art?
I struggle with both, honestly. Cover art in particular is difficult because I can’t make it myself (I rely on what I can find at stock image sites) and Amazon imposes some harsh rules on what it can include. I’ve had many great covers banned for no reason I could tell.
Do you enjoy hearing from readers?
I love it. I get a vast amount of emails and it’s always fun and fascinating to hear from them. It’s always fun to talk about the stories and hear their takes on things, and it’s really interesting to hear about their lives. It’s also really fascinating when I hear from people in countries I never expected.
What is your best selling book, and do you know why it sells so well?
Grounded in Heels by far. It just keeps selling. I think the biggest reason is that it speaks to people who are turned on by feminization because it occurs right around the time that desire awakens in most of us and it’s very easy to put yourself into the shoes of the hero.
Which authors inspire you?
Nan Gilbert is probably the author I think back to the most. She did a series called Leslie in Petticoats which just blew my mind. Sandy Thomas did a couple stories too that I really loved.
How much of your work is based on personal experience versus fantasy?
Each book is personal in the sense that I don’t write books that don’t excite me personally. And I think the underlying concepts are personal in the sense that these have been things I’ve desired over the years. That said, the plots are almost all pure fantasy, with a couple notable exceptions.
Do your friends and family know that you are an erotic author? If so, how did they react when they found out?
Only my wife. She’s supportive, but doesn’t necessarily understand it.
What mistakes have you made in your career?
Not thinking my ideas through enough before I start writing. I’ve completely re-written many a book over the years because I got excited about some vague story idea that just didn’t work as I made my way through it.
What advice would you offer a writer who wants to embark or a successful erotica career?
Rule number one: write what interests you, not what you think other people will like. If you don’t enjoy the stories, writing will become really unpleasant. Second rule: quality is vital. To be successful, you have to give people stories that capture their imaginations and make them look forward to your next book. This is especially true with AI starting to flood the literary world with garbage. Good books are becoming needles in exponentially growing haystacks. If you want to succeed, you need the quality to make people come back to you because it’s getting harder and harder to find new readers.
