Valerie ORiordans Comments
Turbulence was my attempt at writing something smutty for an erotic fiction anthology, Quickies, which was put together by a group of writers here in Manchester a little while back. My interpretation of erotic clearly veers more towards the comic and grotesque than romance, but I can live with that. The other two stories, Owl and Keith Moon, were both commissions: in late 2012, I collaborated with a band called Monkeys In Love for a performance night that blended music and fiction. The band gave me the titles of several of their songs, and, without having heard the tracks, I wrote corresponding stories. On the night, we took turns, performing both. Ive worked from prompts before, and its always interesting to see what surfaces, but this was a particularly fun and strange experience. Were going to be working together again soon, I hope.
