I reserve this blog for occasional, longer, thoughtful essays (some of which first appeared as guest posts on other blogs and some of which are now included in Connecting to Kink) on subjects ranging from politics to BDSM. If you’re interested, subscribe via RSS feed. You’ll get notified when I post infrequent informative and/or opinionated pieces on a variety of topics.
About me: I trade words for cash, specializing in erotic and transgressive fiction and poetry since 2001. My erotic short stories appear in anthologies produced by publishers in the U.S., the U.K., and Canada. My longer work ranges in scope from romantic erotica (Dommemoir) to tragedy (Choices) to BDSM Space Opera (The Lady & The Spyder series).
A FemDom, I own the man I adore. Although dominant in the rest of his life, he demonstrates his love by serving as my submissive. My I.G. Frederick fiction and poetry celebrate finding love in BDSM relationships from the authority of one enjoying that for more than a decade.
A former newspaper reporter and trained observer, I also watch the many ways human interactions turn ugly. I write about abusive and tragic relationships as Korin I. Dushayl. Under both names, I tell stories of characters spanning a wide range of gender and sexuality.
In addition, I share my BDSM knowledge and experience in my nonfiction work. I won the National Leather Association — International Cynthia Slater Nonfiction Article Award in 2014 and Connecting to Kink: Safely exploring your BDSM fantasies online was a Finalist for a 2016 Golden Flogger Award.
