Reed James is a thirty year old guy living in Tacoma, WA. "I love to write; I find it freeing to immerse myself in a world and tell its stories and then share them with others." He's been writing naughty stories since high school, furiously polishing his craft, and finally feels ready to share his fantasies with the world.
"I love writing about women who want to be a little (or a lot) naughty, people expressing their love for each other as physically and kinkily as possible, and women loving other women. Whether it's a virgin experiencing her/his first time or a long-term couple exploring the bounds of their relationships, it will be a hot erotic story."

1) What inspires you to write erotic fiction?
"When I was in Junior High (mid-nineties) I was given a computer for my bedroom. With that computer I discovered porn, and then discovered erotic stories. Text documents were far faster to download than pictures (it could take two minutes for a low-res JPG back then, though that did enhance the excitement). This inspired me to write my own erotica. I had always wanted to be a writer, so I wrote what I liked to read. I have a computer full of old stories I wrote when I was a teenager. They're all terrible with very simplistic characters, but the seeds of what I like to write in erotica are there."
2) What's your ultimate goal as a writer?
"I just like to tell stories. In my vanilla, real pen name, I'm struggling to get published as a Fantasy author. Erotica is fun and lets me pay my bills so I can spend my time writing. I love it. I know other erotic authors that just write to make money, and they hate it. I don't get that. I couldn't write erotica if I didn't love doing it."
3) You write a lot of futa, werewolf, and other "creature" stories. What led you to write this sub genre?
"Futa came from Anime. I discovered anime at age 18-19. I really got into it for a while, and that led, naturally, into hentai. I was exposed to tentacle monsters and futanari. I've written an article on why straight guys like funtanari, and the first time I saw a dickgirl, I was in love. So when I learned there was a futa niche of stories, I began writing them. I love writing them. Now my other creature stories come out of my desire to write more supernatural stories but to keep them sexy."
4) How are you able to make fairytale creatures sexy?
"I think it's understanding what makes these creatures sexy: they're dangerous, powerful. They could hurt you, but don't. Instead they love you. They claim you. They make you safe and fight for you."
5) What's the weirdest or most surprising-to-you thing you've ever written?
"The first time I wrote a golden shower scene. I couldn't believe it was happening. I just sort of erupted onto the page. I've never really liked the genre, and yet, I enjoyed writing it."
6) What's your favorite thing to write about and why?
"Harem stories. I do like writing these. It allows you to explore love and relationships, have a variety of characters that play off each other, as well as lots of possibilities for different sex acts. Throw a few supernatural creatures into the mix and you have a hot tale!"
7) What message, if any, do you want your readers to walk away with after they finish one of your books?
"I don't intentionally put messages into my writing. I don't try to get preachy. My characters sometimes do, but what they are preaching might not be my views. I just want my readers to enjoy my story, the fantasy, and be happy. Fantasy is important. There's a lot of things that are illegal or impossible (and not just sexually) that we might like to do, and books/movies are ways to let us live out of fantasies. It's healthy. That's why I'm against censorship (allowing at you 'zon)."
8) What can readers expect to see more of in the future?
"An untitled Fantasy erotica in the vein of Sword and Sorcery. For years I've been working on a Fantasy world, building the gods, history, and cultures, making them all sexy, and I've been writing about Angela and Sophia; a knight and priestess on a quest to slay a dragon (it's more complicated than that). If's full of monster sex. It's nowhere near publication, but in six months, I hope to start releasing it."
In the meantime, more futa satires. I'm writing a Naked In College story; a genre where students have to go around class naked to let them learn about their sexuality. Of course, it's in my World of Futas universe where there never have been men, but futas. I hope to have this all published around late November. The Werewolf's Harem is continuing and I've just released the next volume of the Magical Girl Chronicle."
