I am a widower that would write short stories and poetry to the love of my life.
As a lover of romance novels and erotic fiction, I have simply taken the free time I now have, after taking care of my late wife, to write about certain events that I became aware of over the course of our marriage.
The events of my books never happened to us, but they did happen to friends and neighbors. I have of course, changed the names of the people involved, and added a little here, and a little there, to give the stories a better “bite” if you will.
The only way I have found to silence the “voices in my head” is to put these events down on “paper.”
