Readers often wonder where writers come up with inspiration for stories. Entangled Lives proves that real life is often hotter than fiction.
Marilyn Jaye Lewis introduces the collection of memoirs by comparing it to other selections in the genre. These stories are penned by popular erotic fiction authors, and the writers use their given names. The introduction does an excellent job of setting up how the idea for Entangled Lives came to fruition.
The concept is simple: seven authors share a portion of reality as it relates to writing and the sensual world. Tales of desire, lust, gratitude, attitude, love, and loss allow readers to understand the backstory that might translate to each authorís individual works. Is it everyday life that fuels these writerís imaginations?
Entangled Lives, while interesting to people who appreciate the erotic genre and to writers interested in how other writers live, might not be a good fit for the mainstream reader. Frank discussions might leave some readers feeling uncomfortable.
Within both the memoir and erotic genres, Entangled Lives shares open dialogue and a glimpse of a natural and humanistic part of life.
