Though our ventures at the Museum of Sex have been temporarily postponed, our November 11th reading at An Beal Bocht is already in the works. We are so excited to feature Kwana Jackson who will be reading en excerpt from Seduction’s Canvas, her 2nd Crimson Romance book.
About Seduction’s Canvas:
“I want to paint you” Artist Samara Leighton had wanted to say those words to the sexy motorcycle rider who lived in the building ever since she first laid eyes on him nearly a year ago. But now that the words were out she couldn’t stop her heart from beating wildly in her chest.
“Honey, you don’t have enough paint to cover me.” Security specialist Mark Thorn didn’t mean to come off as a hard ass. As a matter of fact, he wanted nothing more than to let the tempting artist from across the hall do whatever she wanted to him and then some. But her haughty demeanor left the normally cool rider off his game.
Samara knew this was her only chance to live out her long-standing fantasy and she wasn’t going to let it slip through her fingers. She had very little time before her show was done and the pressure of her family legacy meant she would finally go through with living out her life under the umbrella of the Leighton name and its responsibilities. There would be no more downtown jaunts, lazy museum afternoons, and evenings spent lost in the magic of color and her canvases. And definitely no time spent holding tight to the muscular form of her dark rider while the horrors of her past and her cares drifted further away with each mile of road they covered.
A native New Yorker, K.M. spent her formative years on the ‘A’ train going from her home in Washington Heights to The Village where she attended Stuyvesant High School. On that long ride to study math and science, K.M. had two dreams: 1. to be a fashion designer and 2. to be a writer.
After graduating from Stuyvesant, K.M. studied fashion design at FIT. She then spent ten years designing for various fashion houses. After having twins, juggling that and fashion, K.M. took the leap of faith and decided to pursue her other dream of being a writer.
She currently lives in a suburb of New York with her husband, twins, and a precocious terrier named Jack that keeps her on her toes. When not writing she can be found on Twitter @kwanawrites and on her website at www.kwana.com
