Hello. My name is K M Strange, and I’m an erotic author.
Before I wrote this, I actually googled what to write in an author bio. Oh don’t look so disapproving, I bet everyone does it…Right?
Anyway, one of the first things that was suggested was to mention your credentials for writing about your chosen topic.
Ahem. I would like to think I’m not, like, over-qualified to write Erotica. I’m equally not under-qualified – just so we’re clear. I can honestly say that before I started writing I did a lot of research. Years and years of it in fact. Researching the craft I mean, not the content. Although I’ve researched some of that too. I’m getting off track. I studied Media and Journalism at university and though I didn’t pursue it as a career, it did give me a healthy fascination with the power of language and a respect for the art of writing.
I also like to think I add a gentle layer of humour to my writing, a talent I acquired by watching a lot of comedians (I’m especially fond of people like Ricky Gervais, Noel Fielding and Bob the Drag Queen) as well as comedy sitcoms like Fawlty Towers, Father Ted, Black Books etc. Most of these shows I watched with my parents as a child and I think they shaped my love of dry British humour.
As soon as I actually put a story together, I was hooked! I love creating characters and scenarios and seeing where they take me. I genuinely never know exactly what’s going to happen when I start a story (other than the obvious) and I feel like I get to enjoy the journey my characters take with them.
When I write, my main motivation is exploring human interactions; how our emotions affect our actions. I love delving in to the effect that eroticism and fetishes have on our psyche, and I’ve actually unearthed some interesting things about my own preferences along the way.
I hope you enjoy my stories, I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback. Though, as the old saying goes, ‘Be gentle, it’s my first time.’
