What does a sophisticated lady of a certain age really look for in a work of fiction?

I love to explore the cracks and crannies between the greatness of the past and the values of the present. When you read my stories, you'll often see "good" characters turning sinful and exploring decadent impulses they never knew they had. But the "bad" characters often discover new courage and the ability to share and trust.

If you'd like to read more free fiction, please go to FanFiction and look at the stories I've written under my All-American alter-ego, Dan Sickles.

And if you're over 18 years of age, with money to spend and a taste for excitement, why not look for my commerical writing as well?

I am a published author with PHAZE books, www.phaze.com. Look for HUNTED WITNESS and HIALEAH HEAT, both written by me as Carol Storm. And why not head over to Blushing Books, and look for my latest naughty novella HOUSE ARREST? www.blushingbooks.com

Last but not least, if you feel like checking out my author blog, look for me as Carol Storm on Facebook, Goodreads, or at THE STORM REPORT, www.carol63storm.blogspot.com

Enjoy!
