My first published story was a short romance in the men's magazine http://vintagemagazinecompany.co.uk/en/218-knave. The story was a gentle teen romance written when I was about 17, by today's standards the story would be classed as tame.
Two years ago, I wrote an erotica story that had over 3,000 reads in less than three months. I decided to put Sexual Explosions up for sale, my hope was to start a short series but the story never sold.
If you're wondering - as one person I used to know did - I wrote as Lana Pawcel. The man I mentioned didn't see the anagram on my name, even though we'd been chatting for several months. He asked if I was a man too LOL
