My interview with Fletcher Brown
I met Fletcher Brown when I first opened my own Twitter account. I was nervous of the whole thing, and pretty unsure what I was doing. Fletcher was one of the first people I followed who followed me back, and his light hearted easy manner helped me settle in to the unknown workings of the Twitter universe. I've known him almost two years now and we speak regularly, I guess you could say we know a couple of each other's secrets ;), shh! Don't tell. I admire his work dedication along with his wicked sense of humour that just emerges when you get to know him.
Fletcher is an erotic stories writer, which began when he wrote them for fun for friends, and it was one of those friends that encouraged him to go the publishing route. I know I for one am glad that he did because his stories are well written, easily flowing, and above all steamy hot.
Here is what Fletcher Brown had to say...
Why did you decide you wanted to become a writer?
Aside from the fact that writing was my favourite subject in school, I find that it’s the best way for me to convey my thoughts, feelings, and ideas.
What was the thing that drove you the most to do so?
I used to write erotic short stories to a friend in Sweden and she suggested that I seek publication.
How long have you been writing?
I’ve been writing all my life but I’ve only been a published author for the past 3 years.
Why did you pick the genre/s that you have?
The reaction I got out of my friend convinced me to write erotica but I want to branch out to other genres as well.
Who is your favourite character, and why?
Damien in 2 o’clock Sexperience Vol 2. I like that character because he is devious, smart, and cunning beating the Psychologist at her own game.
Do you have any particular quirks when writing?
Yes. Sometimes when I have writers block, I pace back and forth in my office trying to decide how to move the story forward.
What does your family think of your work?
My children think its cool and are very supportive of my writing.
Do you belong to any writing groups? And if so what do you think are the pros and cons?
No I don’t currently belong to any writing groups.
How do you deal with writers block?
By pacing back and forth in my office. Sometimes I’ll walk away from it and if I can’t push through it, I’ll start all over.
What would you say is the most difficult part of writing?
For me the most difficult part of writing is picking up where I left off. I will read what I’ve already written so that I can regain the feeling and flow of the story.
What do you enjoy the most about writing?
Bringing interesting characters to life and tossing them head-long into outrageous situations! I also enjoy the feedback. The positive because well…who doesn’t love praise? And the negative because constructive criticism will make me a better writer.
Where do you find your inspiration?
From my experiences, my devious mind, and my love of storytelling.
Are your characters based on anyone you know?
Yes. Welcome to Stockholm Sexperience Vol 1 is the true short story of my meeting a friend from Sweden in a chat room and our inevitable sexual encounter years later.
What do you do in your spare time to relax?
I like to work out, read, listen to music, jot down random ideas, or watch a good movie.
What do you like to read?
Erotica, history, Financial Times
Who is your favourite author?
Where are your books available?
My books are available on Amazon.
What are you working on right now?
Sexperience Vol 3 which will be five unrelated short stories including one from my time contracting for the White House. It will also feature my first collaboration with Welsh Erotica Author Dakota Storm in America’s Best!
What is your ultimate goal?
Right now I’m working with a media group who’s interesting in turning my short stories into a television series.
Do you have a favourite film? And if so what is it?
Yes. The Usual Suspects. Great film that keeps you guessing until the very end!
Here is how you can find Fletcher Brown
I'd like to take this last moment to thank Fletcher for his time, and patience, in answering my questions and being a willing participant in my interviewing progress. I hope you'll take the time to follow Fletcher on Twitter, or Facebook, or check out his site, maybe even pop on over to Amazon and pick up one of his hot and steamy reads, but please remember to leave a review, it's the best compliment you could pay an author.
Once again, thank you Fletcher Brown.

A neat interview and good to see a writer who took a love of writing, imagination and experience and nurtured the whole idea of writing what he wanted.
