Where Do YOU Draw The Line?

*WARNING: The following post is a frank discussion of sexual practices and situations some might find offensive. If you are under 18, or find such discussions objectionable, please explore my other posts and pages.*   Okay, warning out of the way, let’s get to it. Welcome to another Hit Or Miss (TM) Series post. This one is inspired by a post on erotic romance author Alex O’Hurley‘s blog, titled “You Wanna Cum Where?”. Alex talked about the preference some men have for ejaculating on their partner’s face. Alex doesn’t care for cum facials at all, and judging from the comments, lots of other women don’t either. Personally, I find it to be overtly degrading and dominant. Some male animals will mount another male’s head and ejaculate or urinate as a show of dominance. I refuse to allow a man to treat me that way. So that got me thinking. I’m pretty sure … Continue reading

Brats, B!tches, and Barbies

*First, I’d like to thank everyone for the thoughts, prayers and positive energy as my family dealt with the loss of Reno, my much-loved step-dad. With your help, we made it through and managed to celebrate his life and rejoice that he doesn’t have to suffer any longer. The funeral was one of the largest our little town had ever seen, and there were 20+ classic cars in the procession. The only blemish on the day was my step-brother’s ex-wife. In her blatant gold digging, she cozied right up to SB, despite having called Reno everything but a milk-cow only a few weeks ago. Everyone knew she was only being nice to SB in order to get “her share” of his inheritance. Everyone except SB, that is. Oh, well. There are a few surprises coming her way, and she won’t be a happy camper when it’s all said and done.* … Continue reading

Sharing a Family Tragedy

As a stereotypically introverted writer, the vast majority of my friends are online. So, I’ve chosen to share the tragedy that has struck my family with those of you who count yourself as my friends. Early this morning, my mother called to let us know my stepdad had passed away during the night. It’s not a sudden surprise, but nonetheless devastating. Seven years or so after my dad passed away, my mom reconnected with a friend from her youth. After a bit, this friend asked my mom to meet a gentleman she’d worked with, a widower and recently retired. The friend thought my mom and this man would have a lot in common. So after a couple of phone calls, Reno came to my mom’s church, and took her to lunch after the service. They fell hard for each other right away. They both approached their families carefully, fearful of negative … Continue reading

This Is A Test Of Your Emergency… Oh, Wait

I’m sure you’ve heard it before. The hair-raising, official sounding buzzer that local TV and radio stations use to alert viewers/listeners to Emergency Alerts. Where I live, it’s primarily used to alert the public to severe weather conditions, though I’m sure it could be used for other kinds of emergencies as well, assuming there’s enough time. If, When When I was a kid, we had gas, as well as electricity, for heat and cooking, and our water came from a rain-catchment system. Other than making sure we had enough food to last a few days, we never really made any emergency preparations. As an adult, even living in a home powered exclusively by electricity, I never bothered with any sort of serious preparations for emergency situations, though we did have a kerosene heater for alternative heat. Even after we lost power for a week in February several years ago during … Continue reading

Your Guide To Sex With… #1

Welcome to a new Hit Or Miss Series(TM)! So, what the hell is a Hit Or Miss Series(TM)? I’m glad you asked. A Hit Or Miss Series(TM) is a series of posts on whatever random subject strikes my imagination. No particular schedule. No particular format. So, for the Your Guide To Sex With… Hit Or Miss Series(TM) {Hey, now, I’m pretending to be precious with the little (TM) symbol! Don’t laugh!} For the first Your Guide To Sex With… post, I thought about staying close to home, and talking about what would happen if a human had sex with a weredragon. But, there are some SOOPER SEKRIT S’PRIZEZ involved with that, so I’m holding it until Blood Dragon I is published. That way, I won’t ruin the first time for you. With weredragons out of the running, then, I think I’ll go with The Vampire. So here it is Your Guide To Sex With… … Continue reading

“Never” Is Just Too Damn Long

I despise political rants where the writer calls you stupid if you don’t agree with their politics. I always said I never do a politics related post here. But “Never” is a long time, so I’m breaking that promise to you, and myself. But I still won’t call you stupid, won’t talk about the… Never mind. Relax, though. No axes to grind here. My issue is with the process, rather than the participants. At least as far as this post is concerned. So, you ask, what about politics has compelled Kenra to take a break from writing? After all, I’m only ONE scene from finishing what I sincerely HOPE is the FINAL round of revisions and edits of Blood Dragon I, now tentatively titled Safe Heart. Sometime this week, hopefully my critique partners, Azure Boone and Jennifer James, will have had time to give it a quick read and make … Continue reading

  • Just Sayin’

    I'm a Romance Author - mainly Paranormal, but nearly all with fairly graphic intimate scenes. Those scenes serve to further the development of my plots and characters and are not included haphazardly to sell books or arouse readers.

    I probably COULD tell the stories without the graphic parts, but I CHOOSE not to. I want to show the full scope of the developing relationship, and leaving out some of the most powerful and meaningful moments will deprive the reader of a measure of understanding and emotional reaction to the characters and their stories.

    Since I write books intended for adult readers, I often have material on my website that is entirely unsuitable for younger readers. If you're under 18, or if you're easily offended by open discussion of sexual situations with frank language, you might want to look the other direction.
