Just What Kind Of Person Actually Writes Erotica?

Thank you, E.L. James. Thank you for opening up a whole lot of new avenues of conversation for people. One of these is erotica in general which always ends up opening up into a break down about who reads erotica or better yet, who writes it. Authors of erotica probably should stop and give James their thanks, now. However, success does not always equal great writing and there are some smartly written books of every genre and sub genre in the erotic world that is likely to be ignored or at least, only barely noticed while so many clamor for more of the whole "50 Shades of Grey" trilogy.

Elizabeth Miette is an author specializing in vampire erotica. For a while, vampires were the thing, even for erotic writers. For many of her friends and family, the fact that she writes that kind of thing is never discussed. After all, there are certain things that you don't share with your father, right? Okay, so Elizabeth Miette writes erotica. What kind of person is she?

Regardless of what some of the frothing at the mouth conservative types would have you believe, people who write these kind of novels, short stories and more are not totally depraved, losers who have nothing else to do but write steamy stories all day long. In fact, most of them not only have other types of jobs, many write other genres, including some who write mainstream fiction and non-fiction items to pay the bills. Ms. Miette is not only a creative writer but is a freelance writer who has covered virtually every topic that you can possibly imagine. She is also educated, holding an Associate's degree in Creative Writing, a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and has since enrolled in school once again, this time seeking a Master's Degree. She does not always share all the details of her writing with her classmates because some of them may make snap judgements.

In one of her bios for a short story, Ms. Miette mentions that she is a single parent and that she loves small children and all animals.She does not list a lot of details about her personal life though, because she likes to keep things private. She has several works in progress, including a more mainstream novel about the fitness industry as well as a collection of stories about her demented dog who may or may not be part goat.

I checked out The Brotherhood: To Slay or to Lay by a recommendation from my wife, she is a big fan. I thought it was a well written novel.

I'm not familiar with Elizabeth Miette's work, but she sounds very interesting and real. You wrote a sensitive tribute to her. Her psychology background probably leads her to explore all aspects of human nature. Interesting article. Thanks.
