What inspired you to write your book?
This book was inspired by my desire to celebrate and bring to vivid life the beauty of young love, and the enjoyment of life's pleasures, no matter how simple.
Here is a short sample from the book:
She unwrapped a fabric brace from her left wrist and offered him her arm.
“Are you sure?” he asked.
She nodded. “I don’t even know you. I probably will regret this, but somehow I trust you,” she said. “But just a look.”
He removed his gloves and she scooted closer to him. He took gentle hold of her wrist, his eyes closed, and right away she felt his consciousness enter her arm. At first she was petrified, afraid to move to the right or left, afraid she might die if she pulled away, but she soon began to enjoy the sensation of him working inside of her.
Before long, Jaimin’s presence slithered out of her and his eyes flickered open. “It’s still messed up,” he said. “It’s not going to heal right. What did you do to it?”
“I’m embarrassed to say.”
“No matter,” he said, his eyelids already feeling heavy. “I can fix it, with your permission.”
“Yes,” she said. “Please.” She cared more about feeling his spirit inside her again than about her wrist. She liked how he felt: the attention, so intimate.
He smiled. “There’s one problem though: sometimes after mending I fall asleep, so you may have to wake me.”
“I will. But… if I move while you’re… you know… will it hurt you?”
“No chance. Don’t worry about me. And don’t panic if your hand goes numb. Just relax—it helps the process along. Are you ready?”
