Yesterday was a big day for me.
I finally met another one of my muses in person.
Last year it was Roger Taylor, my favorite Duran and this year it was the one who had my heart
for over two and a half decades.
I can’t tell you how many stories have had that gorgeous face in them Regardless if its a fanfic or a regular story,
John was involved in some kind of capacity.
The event was his book signing at the City Winery in Chicago.
I’d never been there but the place was really nice.
A packed house of mostly women, gathered to see Mr. Taylor talk about his memoir, answer questions from the moderator as well as the audience.
He also did a reading which was really cool!
Afterwards, those who wished to meet him got a chance to shake his hand and have their own copies of the book signed.
Yes, I was nervous! Even worse, I’d dropped my camera while standing in line before getting to him.
To make things even more tricky, the “security” didn’t let us take pics with him which sucked.
I wanted to have that memory on film like I have of meeting Roger last year.
There is some video though courtesy of my BFF and we shall see how that turns out.
Regardless, I told him how happy I was to meet him and that I’ve been a fan for almost 3 decades!
Due to my mindset not being right, nervous and pissed about the camera, I didn’t mention that he was part of the reason I started writing.
I love writing romance and John along with Peter Steele (RIP) were the first men to catch my eye.
When I started writing erotica, these two men were the faces in my sexy tales. Whether it was my vamp for Peter or my sexy husband that would do whatever his wife wanted for John, they both fueled my fantasies enough to put on paper.
And I’m so glad they did.
Now, I’ve been writing almost 2 years and couldn’t be happier!
John still inspires me to this day and will continue to be one of my favorite muses.
After all, at age 11 when I switched from Nick to John I couldn’t articulate how they made my clit tingle.
Now I can and hope to make those who read my work enjoy it!
Have you met my muse?
Oh he’s just one of the many but the busiest.
The model’s name is Umid and he’s been haunting me to do a few m/m romances for him.
The biggest one is a story I hope to do very soon called Something About Jayden but there’s also a few more he’d like to be in sooner than later.
For now, lets just appreciate this beauty for who he is!
