Welcome to the Insanity...
I was asked a while back what influences you, who influences you? You know I gave a vague opaque answer. Because I wasn't sure what they were looking for. Were they talking about me, the person, or me the author. You see I distinguish myselves, there is me the author and me the person. But put both halves together and you get this kick ass person.
I have hidden myself too long peeps. Why? I didn't want to be called a poser. So I enjoyed who I was in the safety of my house. My bedroom. So who influences me? Here is the run down peeps, sit back and enjoy.
My tastes got better as I got older. At 6 and a half (yes that 1/2 is important to a kid) my brother moved in with us and my whole musical awakening started. Sure I listened to Michael Jackson, Hall and Oats, but its not the same as hearing the hard licks of a guitar and knowing you just hit pay dirt. Michael, my bro said hey have you ever heard of Motley Crue? No I hadn't. I was curious. What did Motley Crue mean. What kind of music did they play? Would I like it? I mean I had the Sex Pistols...could they even compare?
So the point of this post? There is always a point right? Here it is. All of these people influence how I write. Yes I write because I want people to read it and enjoy the ride of each of my stories, but there is more. I write because its who I am. I write in different genre's, its how you get yourself out there. But about six months ago I had that ut oh what have I done moment. I wrote an Erotic Suspense short and my family bought it. Mortification was my friend. Why? Because I worried again what my family would think of me. I had to remember this is who I am, love me or leave me. I had to get over the fact that family would pick up my books and read them. Damn it, this is for me, so I am going to write what I want. If it means raunchy kinky butt licking sex, I'm gonna be knee deep in it. I can't help who I am or what I like, its me. Take me as I am or leave me behind.
My name is Ashley Blade I create worlds were Erotic sex is okay, BDSM is natural and Action/Adventure is common place. My stories are never slow paced and always leave you guessing till the end. I enjoy my job as a story teller and I wouldn't change anything about me.
