Interview with Author Monica S. Martinez

I recently got to meet (in a cyber-space way) Monica S. Martinez. She is an amazingly talented Latina author who has penned a compilation of erotic short stories, Tantalizing Erotic Thoughts & Encounters. She is a fascinating person. Learn more about her from our brief interview:

CM: Where are you from?
MM:  I was born and raised in Queens, NY. I grew up in South Jamaica, where I attended elementary and junior high school. I then moved on to Forest Hills where I went to high school and met my first husband.

CM: What kinds of books do you like to read?
MM:  I enjoy reading fiction, Urban writing, Poetry, Murder Mysteries and also some non-fiction such as memories, biographies. 

CM: Who are some of your favorite authors?
MM: James Patterson, Dean Kootz, Anne Rice, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Ivan Sanchez, and Esmeralda Santiago.  

CM: What inspired you to write?
MM: I’ve always written, since I’m twelve. I was once sexually repressed and when I turned thirty and remarried I was able to let my inhibitions go. I opened an Adult Novelty company back in 2004 where I would go into women’s houses and educate them on how to keep their sex lives interesting and fresh. It was an eye opener as to how many women were really unhappy with their sex lives. I became sort of a sex therapist and I found myself writing stories to help ignite some passion into their lives.

CM: Sounds interesting! Can you share a short excerpt (rated PG, unfortunately) with us? 
MM: This is from the story Sin City

You know the saying: “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” That is exactly where I was headed and that is exactly what was going to happen. We both knew. He just didn’t know how heavy I was going to put it on him.

I figured I’d take a cab to the airport to meet Alexandro. Time to be naughty, I thought as I dressed in my bathroom. Didn’t know how I was going to dazzle Alexandro till after I showered, oiled and scented my body. Afterwards it struck me. I decided to adorn a black mini dress which would showcase every womanly curve I own. It would also provide easy access to my goodies. All I could do is giggle. Underneath I would have on a black push up bra and lace thong from Victoria’s Secret. The dress along with my Charles David black snakeskin sling backs, which accented my calves were sure to wow him at first sight. I started getting dressed.

The thought of his luscious lips on my sweetness had me wet and quivering. Imagining the softness of his lips touching my ‘girl’, then having his tongue dash across my ‘pearl’ and slithering deep into my ‘tunnel’ was driving me crazy.

CM: Sounds yummy! Where can interested readers find Tantalizing Erotic Thoughts and Encounters available to purchase?
MM: They can go on my site  or grab it from

CM: The most important question: chocolate or vanilla? 
MM: Chocolate
