For today’s Triple Play Q&A author spotlight, I’ll be featuring my first author from the lovely nation of South Africa! Stella Blanche, author of Under His Control, is my guest today and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have her join me! She’s going to be talking about some of her favorite reads, “researching” for her sexy books, kink, works in progress…you name it! She even managed to sneak in a shout out for one of the books I co-authored with Jack Crosby! What an honor! 🙂
I am from a very small town in South Africa—living amongst very intriguing yet small-minded people. I am married to the love of my life and we have two beautiful little princesses and a chocolate lab—who thinks he is about the size of mouse, but he’s a monster in actual fact…. I love all aspects of my life—even with all the ups and downs as it molds you into the person you are. I am a Sales Manager by day and erotica writer at night. I have been writing since I was twelve—although back then it was all fairy tales and garden gnomes type of writing.
Under His Control is my first published book on sale and I am so proud of this story as I have been working on it since 2015. I have a bunch of WIP and a few of them are available and FREE to read on Wattpad. I am currently working on a werewolf spanking book which would have you howling for more and I’m hoping it would see the light before the South African winter sets in. Another WIP I am also working on is a dark romance with a lot of hot guys, hot girls, and obviously some delicious discipline scenes. I hope to get enough followers to—eventually, one day—become a full time writer.
Thanks for sharing, Stella! Time for your Triple Play!
What’s the best part about being an author?
I’d say it is the fact that there is a piece of you out there in the world and when you pass onto the next life, there will always be something of you left behind. I also love that you can be anyone you want to be when writing—especially when you are an erotica writer. You can be wild or shy or promiscuous—you can live out any fantasy you want through writing, you can live through your characters and THAT is what makes it so precious.
Can you name a couple of your “desert island” books and why you chose them?
At the top of that list would HAVE to be the Masters and Mercenaries bundle by Lexi Blake. These books taught me so much about the BDSM world—it opened my eyes to a permanent ménage relationship and I read them at least once a month. Next one the list would be Wilbur Smith’s Warlock. This book was handed down to me by my dad because he knew how in love I was with anything to do with Ancient Egypt and it was the first book I read with sex scenes in—so there is that. And last would have to be Rules of the Wild by Jaye Elise and Jack Crosby. I was completely hooked on the TV series ‘Men in Trees’, that whole rugged manly men running wild in Alaska had me fantasizing A LOT and then this book came out and I could just lose myself in the pages.**
What is something most people don’t know about you?
Most people don’t know that I am a kinky person and erotic writer—I mean they know I write books with loads of sex in them, but I don’t think they know how much research goes into it. We read a lot of other erotic novels, we Google, we buy sex toys to write about and the best part is that we have to experience—the worst mistake a writer could make is writing about something they know nothing about or have never experienced… Luckily for me, Mr. B is just as adventurous and curious as I am so I never really have a problem living out my fantasies and “doing” research.
**Awww, shucks! Thanks, Stella!
