What inspired you to write your book?
As a sex columnist for a weekly paper in Montreal from 2007 to 2009, I had a lot of fun getting to know the people and places that make up Montreal’s “Underground City” of sex work and related activities. I interviewed many people each week to compose pieces for my column, but having to super-condense stories into a 750-word slot meant a lot got left out. I took all the juiciest bits and pieces, applied my creative license and a sprinkling of humor (and just a dash of glitter), et voila! Naked Montreal is the result.
