Hello and welcome to my blog, Author Interviews. My name is Fiona Mcvie.
Let’s get you introduced to everyone, shall we? Tell us your name. What is your age?
A.Aimee is my author name – the A stands for Amy. I am the author of “Good Pussy Bad Pussy – Rachel’s Tale” and the follow-up “Good Pussy Bad Pussy in Captivity”.
Fiona: Where are you from?
Born in the USA, today I live in Europe.
Fiona: A little about yourself (ie, your education, family life, etc.).
A.Aimee is my pen name. In my so-called “real life”, I*m an international author with books published in many countries and in many languages. One of my books is an international bestseller now translated to more than 30 languages.
Fiona: Tell us your latest news.
I’d like to share some of my thoughts about writing the “Good Pussy Bad Pussy” books.
Besides wanting to try my hand at writing page-turning romantic and erotic thrillers, I wanted to write about orgasm as a portal to ecstasy and the flow state where we experience timeless awareness and the ecstatic feeling of being fully present in this now moment. I wanted to write about orgasm as the ultimate surrender which leads to the amazing blissfulness which each of us experience when we are finally able to let go completely. And then I wanted to add to this an exploration of the conundrum that arises if we have reached this blissful state of complete surrender in and through situations (and/or with people) that we don’t particularly like or find acceptable.
In other words, I wanted to explore what happens when the body experiences one thing while the mind is screaming something else? This can happen because our bodies are designed so that when we are stimulated sexually, the sensations are pleasurable whether or not we like the person we’re with or the situation we’re in. And this is something many people experience (though they may not admit it or talk about it) and it leaves them confused, ashamed and/or upset when it happens. Because how can something (in this case orgasm) be both objectionable and pleasurable at the same time? It’s a real dilemma. So how do we live with this experience and deal with it? What does it do to us? And how can we live with this both on a personal and social level?
And this is what happens to Rachel, the main character in the “Good Pussy Bad Pussy” books. In her attempt to escape an unhappy marriage, Rachel runs away and discovers and experiences great sexual release in ways that surprise and delight her but are not always socially acceptable. Hence the title of the books.
Then I also wanted all this to take place against the backdrop of our modern day society – with all its ideas about marriage, fidelity and monogamy which so often block or twist or pinch off our natural sexual drive/energy and our ability to experience our own Divinity through our sexuality.
So yes, I tried to mix all this together and from what readers and reviewers are saying, I can see I have managed to stir some of this up. Many readers/reviewers say they initially didn’t like the main character, Rachel, because of what she does, but then as they follow her through the story, they come to understand her and finally really love her and her journey.
Fiona: When and why did you begin writing?
Writing is not something I do, it something that happens in and through me. When there is a message or story that is so strong it has to come out… When that happens, the book than writes itself. I am just so of the channel for the energy or message. So I’ve always been writing, all my life.
Fiona: When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book?
Life and all the amazing things that happened to me and all around me. The dramas, the conflicts, the challenges of being a human being. All this seems to continually shape itself into books which come through me. I was only 20 when I wrote my first book.
Fiona: How did you come up with the title?
The controversial title “Good Pussy Bad Pussy” grew out the story itself because it is the dilemma that Rachel – the main character – faces and tries to deal with through the story. She is torn between the way she thinks she “should” act and be and the way in which she experiences the powerful sexual energy in her body.
Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style? Is there anything about your style or genre that you find particularly challenging?
I just let it flow out through me…
Fiona: How much of the book is realistic and are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
The line between fact and fiction is always hard to define. The Good Pussy Bad Pussy books are both works of fiction but no author can write convincingly about something he or she knows nothing about!
Fiona: To craft your works, do you have to travel? Before or during the process?
Yes it always helps to have been in the places you are writing about… so yes, I’ve been to all the many exciting places in the books … the French Riviera, Amsterdam, New York City, upstate New York, etc.
Fiona: Who designed the covers?
Fiona: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
I think this excerpt from “Good Pussy Bad Pussy – Rachel’s Tale” tells a lot about the message of the book…
Good pussy bad pussy. Despite the traumatic events of New York and the deepening realization that all my actions had consequences, I also knew something else had awakened in me, something I’d never experienced before. A force, a power, a drive, an energy. Call it good pussy, call it bad pussy, call it whatever you will, but a life force had been awakened in me and I couldn’t put it (her) back to sleep again. Right or wrong. She was awake! She was alive! She wanted to live. And she wanted more.
She, my pussy, was alive in me. I felt her moving in me, reaching out, right or wrong, proper or not. She wanted to taste and touch, to be tasted and touched. She wanted to feel the life force, the energy, moving in and through her. She wanted like liquid desire itself. She wanted because she was, life itself. She wanted because she was, the energy of life itself. And now that she – the genie – was out of the bottle, there was no putting her back again. She was untameable, wild; she wanted to be free, had to be free. Because she loved life, because yes, she was life itself. She was the life force in all of us… she was the creative power of the universe – and yes she was sex. Sex! Sex! Sexual! She was pure and beautiful and couldn’t be kept down or locked up. And now she was awake in me, awake! A ravishing beauty, a hungry cunt, a wantingness for the essence of life. And what was that essence? It was the ecstasy of knowing my own soul, my own being, which was somehow alive and felt like frolicking in that stream of liquid desire that carries one on and on unto a state of orgasmic bliss, which was somehow like coming home and finding a peace that was beyond all comprehension… home, home, home. That’s what I wanted, that’s what she wanted, that’s where she was taking me, taking me, taking me… and there was nothing, nothing I could do about it. No stopping her. No turning back now.
She was me and I was her.
And we were flying.
Fiona: Outside of family members, name one entity that supported your commitment to become a published author.
My family never supported me being a writer. In fact, they turned their back on me and my work… but help and support has come from above… and from other unexpected places and people.
Fiona: Do you see writing as a career?
Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
Life and our understanding keep changing, growing and evolving so yes there is always something I would like to have done in a different way. Always
Fiona: Did you learn anything during the writing of your recent book?
Tons – and mainly writing something as controversial as these books is not for the fainthearted.
Fiona: If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?
Ha ha! Good question…
Fiona: Any advice for other writers?
GO FOR IT! FOLLOW YOUR HEART – NO MATTER WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY.
