B.A. Dalton

B.A. Dalton–the bad girl of erotica…

A native New Yorker, B.A. is sassy, proud, a vagabond, a mother, a heartbreaker, a sinner and a saint.

Her world travels have included over thirty countries (a few of which she cannot return to), 42 states (two of which are figurative), and more cities than a politician during campaign season.

Included in her travels are numerous lovers none of whom have come close to the characters created in her books (“Take that all of you ex’s.”), more wine than one human should consume, and enough memories (real and imagined) to keep her writing for decades.

When asked to describe her books, B.A. Dalton responds with her typical honesty and bluntness, saying: “If you want great literature read something like, oh, Emerson. Chaucier. Shakespeare. If you want fun, titillating ‘popcorn’ books come see me. I’ll get you off.”

A Note From B.A. Dalton

Books are an invitation to walk into the vision of the author—to share an illusion.  Part of that experience, for me at least, is to understand the author and their state of mind during the creation of the story.  I can’t speak for other writers, but music plays a critical part in my creative process. 

While meeting Maria and I listened to the following music.  Enjoy.
