I’m A self-confessed Tiger fanatic called L.M. Mountford and an erotica author trying to break into dark romance, historical action, and sci-fi/ fantasy. Honestly, though, I’m interested in anything plot that involves sex and violence. They make up some of the greatest stories in my opinion. A story is like any portrait, it needs to be made up of many colours, but make sure it has these two and you’re bound to be a success.
If you can’t already tell, I’m English (Not British!).
When I was in school, I wanted to be an actor. I gave that up after a Final ‘E’ grade in GCSE Drama. That was a knock as everyone told me I was great. However, before that and now, my dream is to be a successful author. Well, I may be an author but I doubt I’ll ever be successful, so I largely write for the love and challenge of it.
I wrote my first story when I was 14/15. A fanfiction story that I posted online. I’m something of a anime aficionado you see, and like any little boy, my mind had a tendency to wander. After that, it wasn’t long before I moved into the erotica genre, after all, what is it a boy that age thinks about, and I have been in the genre ever since.
Although I’d never really thought about self-publishing, it occurred to me when I was 21 after running across the kindle section of Amazon and seeing how many short stories had been published and were selling. It was something of an eye-opener. Until then, I’d thought KDP was for novels. Shortly after, I wrote and published Sweet Temptations: The Babysitter. I’d thought that would be the hard part, but after publishing, I came to realise it was only the beginning. Not only that, but I was woefully unprepared.
These days, however, I’m locked in a running war with writer’s block.
My favorite authors are George RR Martin, Bernard Cornwell, Jack Higgins, and Sylvia Day (though not exclusively in that order).
I enjoy cooking, scuba diving and travel. Though the great love of my life is found in the big brown eyes of my baby girl Molly
