A Fertile Imagination - Creating the Midnight Pearl Brotherhood

When I started writing "The Exile" series, it began with a certain premise and that was a 19th century secret society called "Brotherhood of the Midnight Pearl." I "met" Alonzo, and he intrigued me. Took me a bit to get some of his secrets out. I began to write some backstory for him, and so the world building began. I felt there was so much more to tell.

The biggest problem is having an imagination that doesn't quit. So, I wrote a couple of "The Exile" stories, then created the website to collect some of the shorter bits and pieces of backstory because I really liked Alonzo and the world I was backstory.

I began to play around with the hierarchies, the personalities, the men of authority, the initiates, and it just sort of gained a life of its own.

I love fantasy and I love research, and I love combining the two. We deal with real life on a day-to-day basis, we need fantasy, we need HEAs, we need freedom to let our mind explore other realities. The Brotherhood of the Midnight Pearl is one such exploration into the sensual erotic world of the men who love and care for each other, challenge each other in their own way, and find a certain level of communion on the island of Mannos.

This is where it starts, we're back at the beginning - more or less. Meet Alonzo Smith, who comes to the island looking for something, finding more than he thought he would. Writing in the erotica genre is more than about the sex, this series is about how these men relate to each other, and the things they learn about themselves, and what they need from each other, from themselves. But intimacy is a huge part of the process. And they are free to explore in a fantasy environment with no limits.

Join Alonzo, and meet the men of Mannos, and experience a world far removed from civilization and societal constraints, a place with its own set of rules, its own hierarchy. It is a place fashioned of gods and of men. Forged with the fire of passionate natures.

A little about the first story in this gay erotica series...

Shy boys, well...they are members of a very select secret society after all. But now they're out and ready to play and to share their world with you.
Hot young men, in need of training, in need of loving, in need of each other. Good boys with bad boys, boys needing freedom, boys needing discipline, boys needing a fine immortal master to show them the way to have a spanking good time.
Alonzo has just arrived. He's an intelligent young man and so very eager. The captain of the ship knows how eager he is. And Squire, Alonzo's first trainer, meets him at the dock ready to take him in hand. Alonzo and his fellow newbloods are about to be challenged in a way they never have been before. Some will make it, others won't.
Fantasy Island as you've never experienced it before. Eager young men and their raging libidos, more than willing to take a chance and embrace a whole new way of life offered only to a select few--only to those of that mainland secret society, The Brotherhood of the Midnight Pearl...
Welcome to Mannos...

Midnight Pearl Website:



The ancient myths of the Brotherhood of the Midnight Pearl tell of an island formed from the depths of the ocean, in the midst of a sea of mystical, sapphire beauty. It is an island paradise built on love and devotion to a common belief, a society made up entirely of handsome and desirable men. And Alonzo Smith is on a journey to discover his place among them. Here begins the path to Alonzo's destiny. He enters this world as a newblood, a young man who will give his all in service to someone special. But just as Goldilocks sought the right bowl, the right chair, the perfect bed, so Alonzo is in search of the right master. And perhaps the right collar to embrace his neck. Thus, upon arrival on the island, Alonzo's sensual journey begins with service to Squire, and his introduction to the hierarchies, laws and boundaries of the Mannos Society of Men.
