Reaching Out from a Mind as Dirty as All Outdoors

If you get lucky enough, I might post adult-only material from time to time, so be 18 or over, or please be elsewhere.

I'll be discussing erotica here, the writing of it and the people who write it, as well as what we've written. I find all these aspects stimulating, but if any of them bore you, feel free to skim. You never know what you might miss, though.

Wild Girls Blog and Book Giveaway Day 17-Catherine Henreid "Odds"

Catherine Henreid lives in Berlin, but her heart is still in Israel. She would never admit to being a Polonia. Her work has appeared in Silver Publishing's Dreaming of a White Christmas series. [A Polonia is the Israeli way of saying someone acts like a Jewish mother.]

In her story “Odds” she recalls her time as a student in Tel Aviv, and a very special roommate.

“I thought back to when I first met her. It was in the early days of the program and there were so many new faces and exotic accents that I was happy just to remember the names of the people from my Hebrew class. She was one of the students who had answered my ad on the university’s blackboard. I had just closed the door behind a guy from the Netherlands when the doorbell rang again. Outside in the hallway stood a pale, skinny girl with an unruly pixie haircut. Her upper lip had a defiant curve.

While I was still trying to decide what it was that made her oddly attractive, she held out her hand to me. “Felicity.”

I let her in and checked her out more closely. The baggy jeans. The broad leather belt. The unbuttoned shirt. The wife-beater underneath. The plain silver bracelet. And the tattoo on her wrist. Felicity?

She looked at me and grinned. “What name would you prefer? Shane?”
I blushed. How did she…?

She nodded toward a half-unpacked suitcase and I followed her gaze. On top was my DVD case, lying open. “You know ‘The L-Word?’” I asked, a bit incredulous.

“Sure,” she said, as if I had asked her if she wanted a glass of water. I led her into the kitchen and offered her something to drink. She took a look around the room. “Felicity’s my grandma’s name, okay?”

“I… I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to–”

“Yes you did.” There was a little twinkle in her eyes, and I knew she wasn’t offended.”

This is just a brief excerpt, with adventures and misadventures to follow, along with a vibrant sense of place and time. A lovely piece, not to be missed. Comment to be entered to win a free copy of the book, to increase your chances of not missing it.
