[Note from Frolic: We are so excited to have Sorcha Blacks from writing duo Sparrow Beckett guest post on the site today. Take it away Sorcha!]
I am the Handmaiden of Chaos.
There are a plethora of worlds in my head. A cacophony of people. My brain is so full important details often fall out of my ear and disappear into the ether.
I’m perpetually late. My house is a random assortment of junk. My desk is a haphazard pile of paperwork. My vehicle may be the love child of a tank and a dumpster.
Despite all this, I love watching organizing shows, and admire the type of mind that can produce such ordered tranquility. My houseful of artistic children watch the shows with me, fascinated by the alien civility of such living—beautiful and strange—like a museum. Like grandma’s house.
My own creativity comes from pandemonium. Messes in my mind converge, sparking against each other, giving life to worlds and characters who never would have existed if keeping order was my life’s work. I love my mental mess. I finger paint in it like a two-year-old, then stand back to admire the result. Sometimes the end product is complete crap, but sometimes there is something there to keep me entertained for weeks. Months. Years.
I can admire the artistry of a lovely, clean, well-decorated home the same way I can admire a sculpture, or a painting, or a symphony. Keeping a tidy house is an art form, and like any other talent it takes time and practice to master. Truthfully, it’s a talent I don’t share, and one I don’t choose to spend significant time on.
This year, I’ve decided to stop being ashamed of my chaos.
I’m an author and a reader—it’s not like anyone is coming over anyway.
About the Author:
Two writers in two countries transform into the super writing duo, Sparrow Beckett, each night after wrangling their housefuls of children and pets. They trade the cape and colorful tights for tattoos and cups of coffee then set out to create a world where readers fall in love with heroes and the women who willingly go to their knees for them. Their books are the products of two kinky minds who don’t take themselves too seriously.
All’s Fair In Love and Mastery by Sparrow Beckett out now!
Grant Ellis, co-owner of the exclusive Catacombs club, can’t stand Arabella Dexter…his own best friend. One scorching night shouldn’t have made things weird between them, but it changed everything. Who knew there were lines friends can’t uncross? Now, no one gets under his skin and drives him wild quite like Dex. Since she refuses to wear his collar, he can only mask his desire with sarcasm and antagonism.
Dex has had it up to here with Grant. He’s a bossy, domineering jerk, and the sexiest man she’s ever been with. Even so, she’s done with collars and the nonsense that comes with commitments. When he extends an olive branch and invites her to visit his new resort on a remote island in Canada, it’s a chance to get their friendship back on track.
Alone in the wilderness for a week, they explore Grant’s investment and the boundaries of their relationship. Some bonfires can’t be contained.
