What inspired you to write your book?
I?m not 100% sure on what inspired this book. I have known a number of people who have suffered from mental health issues and I guess, after recent life events, the time was right to tackle such issues. That and my need to venture into a different sub-genre of erotica.
Here is a short sample from the book:
Rage had taken over again. I grabbed the hammer from under the stairs, took to the front room, and let it fly. Ornaments smashed, books and dvds flew, and my anger only built. I went for the TV next. I hit it right in the centre and watched the screen crack into a spider web. It still wasn’t enough to satisfy my fury. One by one I hit the hammer through the pictures on the wall: photographs of days out, family, our honeymoon. Then I came to the picture that had pride of place. Our wedding. I stared at it, at the happy expressions on our faces. My blood boiled. Nathan may one day be in another of these pictures with that slut. I took a deep breath then noticed my reflection in the glass. I was bleeding. I wiped my cheek and examined the blood on my fingers and instantly calmed down.
I looked around the room at the devastation I had caused. Years of building a home had been destroyed in seconds. I dropped to the floor, my heart aching like it never had before. I had lost everything in the space of one night. I’d lost my husband, my pride, my hopes, my dreams, my future. My mind.
