For Mitzi

Mitzi Szereto asked us contributors to come up with author photos posing with Thrones of Desire.

I find it incredibly hard not to pull faces when having my photo taken. I mean ... I don't look like this all the time - do I?

Well, this is the problem - our faces are all in constant movement, for the most part. One quick flick of the shutter and it can capture the wrong moment very easily!

I remember someone on Fishtank, the erotica crit site, who started every sentence with 'My creative writing teacher says' telling us her creative writing teacher said if we smiled as much as our characters do we'd look like gurning weirdos. It's bullshit though, when we're talking/storytelling etc, we smile all the time. And make funny faces!

I think these photos are perfectly nice and normal! Well... the helmet is a bit incongruous with the setting, I guess, but apart from that :)

Helmet? What ...? Oh that old thing!

And yeah, I use smiles all the time in real life conversation. I'm just glad I can't see myself doing it!

Forget the helmet, where did you get the HAIR??

On Amazon, of course!
