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 work, a talent I acquired by watching a lot of comedians. I especially enjoy the hilarious antics of comedy heroes like Ricky Gervais, Noel Fielding, Bob the Drag Queen, and of course, Boris Johnson. I gained additional inspiration from 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.’
