RR editor Lori Perkins is featured as a guest blogger over at Romancing the Blog. She writes about the woman who was also my inspiration, Anäis Nin, and “feminist smut”.
I grew up in the Midwest in a family where touchy issues were avoided at all costs and silence was the rule of the day. When I wanted to find out about something, I always turned to books—too embarrassed to admit to my friends just how ignorant I was about things like sex. Like most kids I knew, I did a lot of bluffing that I knew more than I did.
