These stories are not sequential and can be read in any order. However, for those new to my stories, you might like to read Story 1, "Laurie Adds Pizzazz," first. It sets some important ground work for the other stories. If you want a brief description of the nature of these stories, you can read the "Introduction" below. Otherwise, scroll down to the list and jump right in! Each title is accompanied by a brief "theatrical teaser"--my personal descriptions of the highlights of each story.

Please, if you enjoy any of my stories, e-mail me. I really appreciate your feedback. It encourages me to work on new stories.

Introducing My Stories

This is a series of romantic short stories set in a happy marriage.

What makes a happy marriage? In our dreams and fantasies, several words often come to mind: romance, love, sex. These words are often linked, but their relationship to each other and to marriage is very complex. Romance is not the same as love, but it can be significant component of love. Similarly, being romantic and having fun with sex do not in themselves forge a happy marriage, but they can be significant components of a happy marriage.

So the general theme of these stories is not to explore every ingredient of a happy marriage. Instead, they all focus on romance in marriage. Different aspects of romance are explored, but one particular aspect predominates. These stories are about married fun--emphasizing the fun a happily married romantic couple can have with sex.

But let there be no misunderstanding. These stories are not pornographic--or "graphic" in any sense. Nor are they poor substitutes for the legitimate role of "marriage manuals." There are no descriptions of mechanics or techniques, no anatomical details of erogenous zones, in fact, no descriptions of actual sexual intercourse at all.

In contrast, they are simply happy, romantic stories that explore different romantic ways a couple can have fun with each other in marriage by being playful in the way they use sex. The romance is sometimes tender, other times humorous, but always within a sweetly sexy atmosphere.

In this series of short stories, I relate the romantic adventures of a fictitious couple, Terry and Laurie. Using both everyday experiences and sometimes very special romantic settings, I explore the important role sex can play in a romantic marriage--the daily experiences, banter, and playful behavior that leads to love-making. These stories capture my idea of a happy, romantic, and sexy marriage--and my idea of the ways sex can add "fun" to a marriage.

The nature of sexual attraction in marriage is also explored in these stories, as well as ways to keep it alive and sparkling over the years. Moreover, lingerie is at times described, due to its playful association with sexual attraction. Nevertheless, there are no crass terms and no lurid descriptions. My goal is to make these stories a joy to read by any married couple.

Story 1 lays a foundation by explaining Laurie's "new strategy" and should probably be read first. However, each story is a separate episode, and after reading Story 1, the rest can be read in any order. Stories 3, 8, and 11 are probably my favorites and, I think, the most romantic! They are my tender stories, and if any will produce misty eyes, these will. They do for me.

I hope you enjoy these stories as much as I enjoyed writing them. Comments are especially welcome. So are suggestions for new stories. E-mail me!
