From the Intro...

You'd never know just by looking at me. Keeping my somewhat questionable career choice to myself, I manage to present as a relatively typical work-at-home mom.

Yes, the ancient art of writing does have a long and (mostly) respected history, but the kind of writing that I do tends to be rather disrespected in this polite society. There are many who would even consider it blasphemous in the extreme to include what I do in the same realm as the sacred category of ... Writing.

But that's ok, I am what I am. Porn Writer (as well as Mom) is just one of the many hats that I choose to wear, although I am rather careful about who I tell. Only a select few know what I really do after I kiss my kids goodbye at the classroom door. And even they don't know (and probably don't want to know) the details - that I trot on home each morning to a computer with file names like 'Lesbian Tendencies' and 'How To Introduce Your Lover To The Joys of Kinkier Sex.' Some might question how one can be a mom and a feminist and a literate woman and still write mainstream porn. The truth is, I actually enjoy the challenge of creating sensitive, caring characters within this generally exploitative genre. I look at it as almost a community service. Yes, it may be a dirty job but who else is going to spread the word? Sometimes I even go so far as to consider it my calling.
And as callings go, it's really not all that farfetched. Write what you know, say all the experts. Well, gosh, I know how to have sex, I know how to fantasize and I know how to write. Voila! Career choice option number one, please! And as a career choice, you sure can't beat this one for pure fun.

Think about it. How hard is it to imagine your wildest fantasy, embellish it a little or a lot, write it down and get paid for it? How hard is it to peruse lingerie sites on your home computer in the middle of the afternoon? And how hard is it, really, to try out that taboo little sex act, the one you've always been curious about, all in the name of research?

Fact is, writing porn is fun! It's also one of the easier markets to crack and make money at while you're still honing your skills. "It's A Dirty Job..." is one of the only resources that can teach you everything you need to know to create your stories and target your markets.

It will inspire you to follow your own visions, make money and, most of all, have a good time doing it. Just check your inhibitions at the door and the rest is easy!
