KD Grace, 50, lives in Surrey with her husband Raymond, 51, a chemical engineer. They don’t have any children. Her latest novella Surrogates is available on Amazon and www.mischief.com.
Erotic writing is like any other. You simply do your research and use your imagination. Just because a story features a threesome or a woman having an affair with her gardener doesn’t mean that’s what I’m up to myself. There’s nothing less glamorous than my job writing erotica. I sit at the dining table in my trainers and tracksuit with not a pair of stockings in sight.
My husband loves what I do and vetoes my male characters to make sure I get the tone right. Even before I did this for a job we couldn’t have spent more time thinking about sex than we already do. Yet being an erotic author has made me aware that we’re the exception and that lots of people don’t make sex a priority in their relationships.
Although I don’t write about my own experiences I do pay homage in my novels to my love of sex outdoors – the fear of being caught makes it far more exciting. Being outside is far more atmospheric than posh hotels or bedrooms.

“What is changing now is the audience, and I think that Fifty Shades of Grey, and the firestorm around it, has done that … Now it is OK to read erotica – in fact, it is cool,” said author KD Grace, whose book Surrogates has just been launched by HarperCollins’s new ebook erotica line Mischief Books. “Women almost had to be given permission to be open about it, to say, ‘I read erotica and so what?’, rather than reading in the closet.”

On 12th April 2012, I appeared on Channel 5 News (UK) to speak about erotic fiction and the rise of eReaders.
I’m ecstatic to have my novel, Body Temperature and Rising listed as honourable mention on Violet Blue’s coveted 12 Best Sex Books of 2011 list. Here’s what she had to say:
Body Temperature and Rising by K. D. Grace
I am a huge fan of K.D. Grace’s explicit, well-crafted writing (I’ve selected and published her work in multi-author “Best” collections), and this novel did not disappoint me. It’s the first of a hardcore paranormal trilogy, and many readers think it is her best work to date. “A voyeuristic encounter on the fells ends in sex with a charming ghost for American Marie Warren who realises she has the ability to unleash demons. Her powers bring her to a coven of witches who practise rare sex magic that allows ghosts access to pleasures of the flesh.” After this, things take a turn for the worse….
Thank you, Violet!
