Quickie Q&A with M. Christine
How much research do you do when writing a story and what are the best sources you’ve found for giving an authentic voice to your characters?
It varies, but there is always some research. Could be geographic research, looking into landmarks or intersections in Los Angeles or SoCal, to make my vision more vivid. Music, movies, cultural items are easily confirmed online. For one of my works in progress, I researched more heavily into the Travelers culture—Romani, Irish Travelers—and read a couple books on the subject. One was a children’s story about a “gypsy” child in England. The other book was a memoir of a young Romani gay man, in which he left his family and culture and assimilated in London. Since I didn’t need to become a scholar, I didn’t venture further into the very complex and secretive Travelers culture, otherwise I’d fall into a hole and not write my own tale. I soaked up enough info to feel comfortable alluding to these societies without making them the integral part of the story.
What’s harder, naming your characters, creating the title for your book or the cover design process?
Naming characters is a piece of cake, a delicious piece of cake I love. I have lists of wonderful character names in my notebook, that I pull out in the time of need for a name. In Will to Live, I had to identify a cartoon that Will worked on as an animator, so I flipped through notes and found I had written (in order to remember) the name of my former neighbor’s softball-headed white tomcat Jiggs. He was an amazing old coot of a cat, and he would stare through my screen door, checking out the scene. So the cartoon I called Jiggs! Even with titles, whether books or short stories, I have tons of ideas compiled for the picking. I love weirdo or kitschy titles, and hope to use them all one day. The cover design process was easy—both my covers were done by Kelly Ann Martin, who is a wonderful designer and a class act.
The old adage learn by doing sure applies to Williamson “Will” Franco, a dominant prodigy at age 18. If it weren’t for an impromptu threeway encounter—with a sideshow of anilingus—this truly intercultural young man never would have dreamed of spanking, bondage, and role play. So he becomes an employee of a sex club.
When Will shows up, club revenues jump. Consensual kinky sex is not a required part of the job, but is optional. The club, however, ends up being much more than a sexual awakening. His coworkers embrace him as kin, while the proprietress and her submissive husband end up being Will’s benefactors, bankrolling his education and guiding him on a good path, despite a dire home life in the hood.
The experience matures him, equips him to cope with inevitable family problems and tragedy, and shows him how to live.
Once they arrived at Kendra’s sleek apartment, she got right to the point and explained the plan: although she and Yuri engaged in unprotected sex—they scheduled regular clinic visits to test for STIs—Will would need to use a condom.
Kendra had a special chair Yuri bought for her with Righteous Ding Dong proceeds. The chair let Kendra sit comfortably, but exposed and parted her ass crack and pussy for Yuri to service below.
“I’m not always a top,” she explained.
Will, though green with this lingo, understood.
“I’m very balanced. I like being top and bottom, often topping from the bottom—like now.”
Kendra espoused her philosophical ideal of sex while she settled herself on the chair. She wore stockings, a garter belt, and stilettos, as well as a half-cup bra to complete the look. She beckoned Will toward her, her face level with his fly, which she deftly undid. When he looked down at this brunette vixen, he detected some Asian ancestry.
Yuri was already set up under the chair, sighing at the sight of her slit. “While Yuri eats my ass, I’ll service your cock— with a rubber to be safe,” Kendra told Will. “Is that agreed?”
“Uh-huh,” agreed Yuri with a muffle, his mouth already planted in her heavenly cave as he stroked his full-to-bursting cock.
When Will’s hefty erection was wrangled out, Kendra was pleasantly enthused.
She smiled lustily and fondled it before opening a Magnum-brand condom to fit over his stiff meat.
“Gobble, gobble,” she said.
Will enjoyed that, as well as the power his prick had over her demeanor.
