After losing her husband unexpectedly, Katrina Mayer decided to open Serpent’s Kiss. She wanted it to be a place where she and her fellow kinksters could play and socialize.
Five years after the doors opened, the club is everything she’d hoped it would be. On Friday and Saturday nights, Serpent’s Kiss is filled with men and women who share a similar desire to explore the pleasures BDSM has to offer. The club has continued to grow, and over the years, many of its members have become friends.
The one thing Katrina didn’t expect when she’d decided to open a club was the human drama that came with it. Learning to balance her life as the club mistress has taken some getting used to, but she wouldn’t change a thing.
How important is it to you with all of the ‘competition’ out there, as an author of BDSM, to stay true to the ‘lifestyle’?
Staying true to the BDSM lifestyle is very important to me. I run all of my BDSM scenes by a Dom who has being living the lifestyle with his wife for over fifteen years. He reads over the scenes and lets me know if there are any inconsistencies or even things that ‘no good Dom/me’ would do.
There was a scene in Welcome to Serpent’s Kiss that I had to go back and alter a sequence of events after receiving feedback from him. Although, according to him only experienced Doms would probably pick up on the issue, it was important for me that it was right. I’ve been very lucky that nothing I’ve sent him has taken any major correction. It’s all been little things, but to me those are important and add to making the story more realistic.
