Once upon a time, there was a little girl who loved reading, adored writing, and got a very funny feeling whenever she heard the words, 'spanking', 'over his knee', or 'punished'.
As she grew older, she began to realise what exactly those feelings were, and even though she thought she was a freak, even though she wanted more than anything not to combine those feelings with those words, thoughts and fantasies, she failed.
Absolutely certain that she was the only one in the whole entire world who felt this way, she began to write little stories for herself. For her own eyes only. These stories were about naughty little girls who were Spanked and Punished - almost always on the bare bottom, almost always by a stern, loving Daddy who did it For Her Own Good Because He Loves Her.
One day, when the little girl was all grown up - on paper, at least - she decided to find out whether anyone else had ever had the bright idea of writing stories about that exact same thing.
She found Bethany's Woodshed, and discovered that not only was she not the only one (by any stretch of the imagination), but that she, too, could send in something she'd done and fulfill her lifelong dream of being a published writer.
The rest, as they say, is history - now that same little girl not only writes books about her favourite subject, she also gets paid to edit them. Who says real life can't have a happily ever after?
