About the Author

Jefferson Graydon (J. G.) Willette was an investment banker during the 1920's. The market crash of 1929 toppled many fortunes, including his own. After vainly trying to save his family fortune Willette committed suicide by drinking iodine. He left behind a mountain of debt and a small locked trunk filled with a trove of letters, photographs and personal writings. Within this trunk was a smaller, tightly wrapped, bundle of papers which (after many years of neglect) were finally examined by his last surviving heirs. They were discovered to be a collection of unpublished erotica written by J. G. Willette himself. The contents of the stories and unfinished novels contained in this collection would have been considered scandalous in the early part of the twentieth century but, fortunately, with the passage of time the mores of society have shifted and evolved. Our great thanks go to the remaining family of Willette in granting us the license to publish these stories. They are a remarkable glimpse into the times within he worked and lived; and they remain as tantalizing and arousing as they no doubt were when he first set pen to paper. We don't the know the full story behind J. G. Willette and his bawdy tales of submission and discipline but we're sure you'll enjoy exploring his world as much as we have.
