Miranda Forbes, editor of Xcite Books

My life as an editor for Xcite Books can be exciting and demanding – I’m lucky enough to be able to combine both work and pleasure! My ‘hands on’ knowledge of spanking and all things a little taboo helps me to understand what is exciting to read and will really draw readers into those descriptive scenes. But whoever says you shouldn’t mix business and pleasure obviously hasn’t found themselves in my shoes!

I enjoy being a professional book editor by day and a naughty little submissive temptress by night and at weekends! As Miranda Forbes or Tallulah Taboo I am one and the same person, but in the fetish scene people tend to have a 'persona', so I adopted the name of Tallulah Taboo. I think it's a fair reflection of my character - playful and sassy but at the same time I am what people in the vanilla world would deem to be slightly naughty and in polite company a little unmentionable!

This summer we are releasing our first non-fiction title – The True Confessions of a London Spank Daddy. I first met the author Peter Jones in a Soho pub as he wanted to write short stories for our spanking books. Once we got chatting I discovered his true role as a Spank Daddy and realised there was a sensational book waiting to be revealed. In this powerful book Peter reveals how his fetish was kindled by corporal punishment while still at school. How he struggled to contain it until, eventually, he discovered he was far from alone in London’s vibrant, active spanking scene.

What he learnt on the scene helped him to understand the psychology of women I like me, who wanted to experience submissive discipline. Many are professional women, often juggling a demanding job and family. They need to occasionally relinquish all control, to submit totally to the will of another. Others seek a father figure who can offer them the firm security they remembered from their childhood when Daddy had been very much in control.

As a submissive I've always been aware of my sexuality, although at first I didn't understand what it was exactly. I always found I was attracted to people I termed as "confident" and able to "stand up" to my headstrong character - it should be known that submissives are most certainly not doormats, well, not this one anyway!

Miranda Forbes is 29 years old, has two business degrees and is a bright, feisty, articulate speaker. She offers a very fresh and acceptable face to the often hidden world of sex and spanking. Miranda is completely comfortable talking about her journey into the this world and of her experiences with her own Spank Daddy.
