Can you tell us briefly what your new book, Let’s Talk About Tickling, is about?
Veronica: Let’s Talk About Tickling talks about the many different aspects of tickling. It deals with the psychological, the physical and the emotional aspects of the tickling fetish, as well as giving tons of useful advice about how to bring more sensuality and laughter into your relationships and your life in general.
It is not simply a book about tickling. It is a book about discovering your true sensual self and sharing that information with your partner. It emphasizes the importance of communicating your fantasies and desires, so that your relationship does not become stale. While tickling is the main fetish my book deals with, it also discusses other related fetishes and many other informative tips on keeping your sensual self alive, as well as your personal relationships.
Can you tell us more about Stacey Handler?
Veronica: Sure. Stacey Handler is the other name that I write under and is my real name. Veronica Frances sort of just came to me one day as an idea for a pseudonym I could use for all of my erotic tickling writing.
Under my real name, I have written and published a book on body image that includes poetry and prose. I also write all kinds of other poetry and am a singer-songwriter.
You mentioned you wrote a book on body image under your real name. Can you explain how that relates to an interesting tidbit about your family?
Veronica: Yes. My grandmother Ruth Handler created the Barbie Doll. The Ken doll was named after my father and the Barbie Doll after my aunt. The Stacey doll was named after yours truly.
As you can imagine, growing up having Barbie as a plastic family member made my own body-image issues a rather formidable challenge at times.
My book is called The Body Burden; Living In the Shadow of Barbie. It helped a lot of women find the road to self-acceptance and I did quite a bit of public speaking on the subject. I do feel that I have grown a lot as a writer since then, so I don’t talk about my first book all that much anymore. I prefer to focus on what inspires me to write as the woman that I am today.
Do you continue to speak out about the importance of having a positive body image?
Veronica: Yes. My original song, Ain’t No Skinny Little Thing encourages women to feel empowered and beautiful, no matter what body negativity society continues to throw at them. Ain’t No Skinny Little Thing is available on iTunes.
