Will The Real Delilah Please Stand Up? (Wicked Wednesday)

This week Marie’s Wicked Wednesday promp is In the (erotic) blogging community people frequently hide their real identities. This week we want to hear your thoughts on this…


When I first began writing erotica, I was a public school teacher. Teachers are a profession where a career as an erotica author has the potential to create a lot of moral panic and outrage. I was literally scared of losing my job because someone discovered I’d written smut about wanting to fuck Wesley Crusher. I needed plausible deniability.

Today, the truth is that it’s not that hard to ferret out my real identity. I write an expat blog where I have promoted Capturing the Moment. Can you figure out my irl name? Yes, with minimal effort. I’m not a teacher anymore, so I’m not worried about getting fired. However, I find it useful to write non-fiction under my legal name while using Delilah Night for fiction.

(This post is super short because I’m still newly out of the hospital and high on painkillers–I find it really hard to focus.)

  1. Good to hear you’re out of hospital and hope you are recovering nicely and feeling better.

    I can see how, in your case, two identities are quite handy! Great that you don’t have to hide either of them, though 🙂

  2. Delilah Night is a fabulous name! Very exotic.

    I hope you are recovering well x
