I am an author and artist. I always find talking about me a bit difficult as, in truth, I don't find myself particularly interesting. I am fairly focused on work, but I do have hobbies that I take rather seriously but I will open a new thread for that. In this thread, if you would like any general questions answered I would be happy to answer subjects on about anything.

the inspirations from the art work come from all over.. I will never live long enough to paint all the things I want to paint.. I suppose it is a feeling when I see something.. a strong desire to capture something and make it mine.. and having made it mine.. I let it go.. does that make sense?

thank you both for signing up to the news letter there is also a blog you don't need to sign up but do feel free to comment.. I would do more blogs but I feel like I am talking to myself most of the time

thanks for the comments

Yes, it makes perfect sense...having a strong desire to capture something and make it yours...then once you have made it yours letting it go. I'd never thought of it in exactly those terms...but yes...that is exactly how I felt when I finished writing His Perfect Submissive... It was like...I had captured the characters, the nuances of who they were...and then I was ready to turn them lose (though this isn't always easy...they do keep coming back.)

But yes...it makes perfect sense. :-)
