Bio:

Anarie Brady writes hot, happy-ever-after love stories filled with strong men and strong women who choose to submit
to their own desires. She also loves scratching her chinchilla in all his itchy
spots, sipping tea, and savoring whiskey. She absolutely adores hearing from
fans, so don’t be shy!
Please share a little
bit about your current release.
This
story revolves around two men coming to terms with the extreme racism of the
past. Luckily, one man’s brilliant submissive comes up with a plan to mend the
wounds of the past and to forge a new friendship.

What inspired you to write this book?

I
wanted to find a way to show the evolution of the horrors of historic dungeons
to the modern BDSM pleasure dungeons. Living in the St. Louis area where great
strides are finally being made to mend the disease of racisms, I also wanted to
tell a story where individuals overcome their pasts and become lifelong
partners.

Excerpt from Rescued from the Dungeon: Oubliette:

“Marina, what is it you want to propose?” Jason asked. She
wouldn’t speak until he had given her permission. She was in full submind, a
level just below subspace. Submind could be maintained for hours, days even. It
happened when she let go of the needs, desires, and stresses of the outside
world, allowing her mind to focus only on the needs, desires, and wishes of
Jason, her dominant. The source wasn’t necessarily sexually motivated, but
rather service motivated, unlike subspace, which was often achieved while
sexually stimulated. In truth, subspace was rather like that delicious glow
that often happens to vanilla couples after sex, but that glow was more like a
nuclear explosion.
“Sir, I know how upset you’ve been since David shared his
history. I wish to propose something that might, in some small way, appease
your sense of fairness,” she began.
“That’s not necessary…” David began.
“No, she’s right,” Jason interrupted. “I agree with you that
we need to leave hate and guilt and blame in the past. There’s no way I can
ever make up for what my family did to yours, David, so there’s no point it
trying. But, I can’t let go of this. The image of what your ancestors suffered
at the hands of mine keeps running through my mind. I need to find a way to
still those ghosts. What were you thinking, Marina?”
What exciting story are
you working on next?

I’m
working on several and really need my husband/dominant to give me some stern
discipline, so I can concentrate on one!!! I’m close to finishing Diary of a Dominant. As can easily be
seen from the working title, it’s written from the point of view of a dominant
who lives in Lexington, Kentucky. He and his submissive open The Mansion – an
exclusive club for like-minded players. Naturally, trouble ensues when Mae is
kidnapped. I’d tell you more, but I really can’t.

When did you first consider yourself a
writer?

I’ve
written stories, poems, articles, essays most of my life. In 2008, though, my
first book, Conquest of a Fairy, was published. That’s when I thought, “Wow.
I’m really a writer.”

Do you write full-time? If so, what’s
your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find
time to write?

I don’t. I’ve been an educator for over 30 years. It is so very difficult to
find time to write, which is why I don’t have many books out. I write mostly on
weekends and in the summer. Some people play video games to relax. I escape
into worlds of my own making

What would you say is your interesting
writing quirk?

I
talk to myself when I write. Even if I don’t vocalize, my lips move as if I
were talking.

As a child, what did you want to be when
you grew up?

I
wanted to be – don’t laugh – either a beautician or an electrician. As an
adult, I know absolutely NOTHING about electricity and I need to look up videos
to figure out how to deal with my hair.

Anything additional you want to share
with the readers?
As a reader myself, I’m hesitant to contact my favorite writers. Don’t be
like me!!! If you like something, not only leave a review, but contact the
writer!! Honestly, most writers are something of a hermit and can get lost in
the words. We need real, live people to chat with. I go all fan girl whenever I
contact a writer and he or she messages me back or “likes” a comment. Before I
began to write I didn’t realize that writers go all fan girl when a reader
contacts them!
