My Illustrious Career
A writer’s life is , well, complex. I’ve kept journals for decades. I even found the diary I kept at age thirteen listing all the boys I had kissed (so far)!
I realized I was a writer very early on, so entered college as a journalism major. I hadn’t written much fiction until I finished my thesis for my masters degree in fine arts. When I began to read my personal journals I found a large amount of my life was spent in a career that invited unexpected involvement in the sensual world of the arts and theatre. An unimaginable immersion in the underworld of beauty and backstage delights in many associated venues offered up plenty of fodder for my stories.
All my erotic secrets were sleeping there waiting for me to wake them and share with you, my audience. Yes! My life has been a sensual adventure. Lucky me, my sexuality was awakened early. I found love within lust at a rather young age. What was I to do? I delved into answering the question; who can one trust? Sometimes a girl cannot have sex without abuse. And a woman can’t love or trust a man no matter how she re-invents herself.
Getting back to my illustrious career…
My early professional years were spent as a stylist, make-up artist, and model in the Los Angeles area. I went freelance and landed a position with Penthouse, Inc. as stylist for Suze Randall who was just beginning her rise to stardom as a photographer for Playboy, Penthouse, and Larry Flynt publications. I met Larry at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Wait till you hear that story! I was an insider, invited to various Hollywood parties of the era. You DO want to know the details, don’t you?
Right now I’m writing a novel about a man who is a virtual nightmare. It is part sci-fi, part fantasy. Stay tuned. I have posted an excerpt chapter titled Pilot. http://theessentialerotic.com/s-sommers-excerpt-from-novel-bitterroot-chapter-titled-pilot-the-rape/
My thesis is a study in infinite reality. My stories are cemented in the false notion that real or true experience can only be had in actual reality . It has been proven to be untrue! Scientists maintain that perception is always a form of constructed experience which is subjective to each person’s individual perceived reality. If one can accept the idea that Perceived Reality is ALWAYS VIRTUAL, they will appreciate my erotic stories.
