LF: No. I only started writing erotica on a dare and when I realized I was good at it, and enjoyed it I just never stopped writing it!
NG: What do you think is the biggest misconception about erotica authors and the readers who enjoy our work?
LF: That we're all sex-mad and promiscuous! Also, when people assume that erotic writers have done everything they write about. If we didn't have good imaginations, we wouldn't be very good writers!
NG: Indeed, Lucy, indeed! Are there any authors who've had a major impact on your writing?
LF: Only in terms of spurring me on to write in the first place. I don't try to emulate other authors' work, though I do have writers that I admire immensely. I just write in the style that comes naturally to me. I just look at how successful other writers in the genre are and it spurs me on to get there myself one day!
NG: What are you reading right now?
LF: I'm reading Rachel Kramer Bussel's latest anthology from Cleis Press, Gotta Have It.
NG: How has your writing process changed since you were first published in 2006?
LF: When I first started it was more of a hobby. But I've recently made changes in my life that mean I have more time to dedicate to writing. So I am taking it a great deal more seriously and as a result am producing more finished pieces all the time.
NG: What are you working on for the 2011?
LF: Ooh, lots of things. I recently went freelance. Part of my time will be taken up with my new business, Writer Marketing and I'll be writing for the rest. For the writing part, I have a few projects in the pipeline. I'll be doing another erotic anthology, answering calls for submissions and also working on longer pieces of my own. Wish me luck!
NG: I don't think you're gonna need it, but I wish you much luck, Lucy! Let's talk about your latest sizzling release, Uniform Behaviour. What's this collection of stories about?
LF: Uniform Behaviour is an erotic anthology about men and women in uniform. I've always been a fan of men in uniform so it made perfect sense for my first anthology to cover this subject. The book contains sixteen stories from fourteen authors and is scorching hot! A percentage of the proceeds goes to UK charity Help for Heroes so this is a project very close to my heart.
NG: That is so cool! What inspired you to pen this sexy tale?
LF: I wrote one of the stories in the book. I'm not sure where the idea came from, to be honest. The man inside the uniform in question is an actor I have quite the crush on, so he's not exactly a figment of my imagination. Though the things the heroine does with him in the story clearly are though!
NG: Give me three reasons readers will love Uniform Behaviour.
LF: It contains scorching hot erotic stories.
Uniforms are sexy, baby!
A percentage of the proceeds is going to a very worthwhile charity, which helps returning servicemen and women wounded in battle.
NG: Those are three fantastic reasons to love this erotic anthology! What's the biggest mistake you see in the stories you work on as an editor?
LF: Luckily for me, I haven't seen any big mistakes, just little ones that as humans, we all make. Just the odd typo, accidental name changes and the like. But if the story is strong enough, that wouldn't put me off contracting it – a few tweaks here and there and everything's fixed!
NG: What advice would you give to authors interested in submitting to you or elsewhere?
LF: Make sure you read the call for submissions thoroughly. Then read it again. There's nothing more frustrating than receiving stories which aren’t what you're looking for.
NG: Erotica For All is your baby, tell us about it.
LF: I started the site because I felt there was a gap in the market for a quality site where readers and writers of erotica could congregate and hook up. The site is growing rapidly and I get lots of positive feedback, which makes me very happy. I'm always on the lookout for author profiles, competitions and free reads to feature on the site, so authors please come on over and see what it's all about!
NG: Lucy, thank you so much for stopping by Simply Sexy Stories!

Caution! Scorching Excerpt from Uniform Behaviour:
No, I shook the thoughts from my head, all too clichéd, all too seedy.
“Jesus!” I yelled as his free hand pinched down on my nipple, squeezing it firmly, exquisite pain coursing its way through my veins. I continued to clench around his fingers, another surge of arousal slipping from my core, heated juices spilling from my engorged and swollen cunt, coating his hands with my slick. I yelped in surprise as he forced his fingers into my mouth to taste the musky sweetness of my snatch.
“See how fucking good you taste?” he rasped against my ear, his words sending another surge of arousal whizzing around my body. All I could do was nod, words stuck in my throat as I succumbed to the feelings this fireman was invoking within me.
I have to admit, I did taste good, never having sampled the delights of pussy before now. Without warning there I was on bended knee, the image of myself drinking from another woman’s cup, lapping at her centre with long, luscious strokes whilst she writhed beneath my tongue.
I was brought back to the present by sharp pain in my breast as Bryan twisted a swollen teat, relishing in the pleasurable pain that spilled from my throat. He shifted closer to me in the darkness, pressing his thick erection against my pussy and grinding gently. With his cock still snugly tucked inside his trousers I had only the scratchy material of his uniform to contend with. My core ached for affection and I ground against him as hard as I could, rubbing myself against him like a wild feline in the throes of heat.
Uniform Behaviour is available now on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk!
