Behind the Books
Read my story below on how I went from Homeless to Self-Published
I'm Carissa McIntyre
Also known as Lady Mack, Xo
My name is Carissa McIntyre, also known as Lady Mack Xo, and I am a mid 30's mother of 3 and a self published erotica author, public speaker and workshop facilitator from Peterborough, Ontario Canada.
I started out on this path to becoming an author while homeless, living in the Peterborough Crossroads Women's Shelter with 4 children, one who was not mine, after fleeing a toxic relationship. Writing was all I had. I was depressed, broken, and lost. It was the lowest point in my life, but from that has come something incredible.
My life, my children, myself, we are blossoming, because I found the strength to push forward. Writing CUFFED, my very first erotica novel, publishing it, finally seeing my life long dream come true, it sparked a fire inside of me again. It gave me purpose. It saved me. It gave me passion.
And now, I want to share that passion and purpose with the world, through my writing, my workshops, and my love for life.
Lady Mack, Xo
Right now my website is going through a little bit of an update, so keep checking back for some exciting changes!
I am hitting some big daily writing goals right now, and making great progress on my next novel release...
It's a steamy yet thrilling apocalyptic erotica novel, and I am beside myself in anticipation watching it come to life!
I've also been dabbling away at the 4th and final novel in my Cuffed series.
I am also working on an explicit threesome story that will be available for download on my mailing list, which always includes sneak peeks, discounts and freebees, so make sure you are signed up for that, you don't want to miss out!
Thanks for being here my lovely friends!
Lady Mack, Xo
