She has authored many erotic short stories and has collected her own works, as well as others', in dozens of published collections, including specialized volumes on BDSM (two volumes of Naughty Spanking Stories from A to Z and the He's On Top & She's On Top collections) and lesbian erotica (Glamour Girls & First-Timers).[citation needed]
