"Writing erotica is powerful--it can entertain, empower, and excite the writer as well as the reader. If you're over fifty, you have wisdom and experience to share, and you'll find Aphrodite's Pen
a lively and motivating erotic writing course. This book offers instruction, prompts, interviews with published post-midlife erotica writers, and samples of erotica to inspire you and help you create your own."
--Joan Price, advocate for ageless sexuality and author of Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud about Senior Sex
"When we think of erotica, we don't usually link it together with middle-aged women. In fact it is middle-aged women who are finally liberated to fully experience the sensuous delight of erotica. They have reached the point in their lives when they are no longer encumbered by the risk of pregnancy nor zapped by the physical ramifications of menopause. This is a groundbreaking book that so many of us have been waiting for ... empowered women writing erotica!"
--Kathleen A. Barry, PhD, coeditor of Unmasked: Women Write about Sex and Intimacy after Fifty
"Women in midlife and beyond are often sexually marginalized, yet we are in a great position to call on years of passionate experience. Stella Fosse shows us how to write erotica through step-by-step instructions and exercises. Writing erotic literature, like fantasizing, is a great way to explore your sexuality and stay safe at the same time."
