Product description

About the Author

I was born Adrianna Taylor in 1987 to middle-class parents and, although we were not wealthy, we lived a comfortable existence. My parents split when I was 16. As a child, I was interested in becoming a vet. But I never had a clear idea of what career path I would take. I left school and went to sixth form, but it didn't grab me, so I moved on to doing a hairdressing course. Whilst studying, I also worked in retail. But my life was uninteresting, and I used to imagine working in a strip club and earning loads of money every night. It seemed a more glamorous way of life than helping choose hairstyles or doing price checks. At 21, I plucked up courage and got my first professional pictures done. I posted them on a modelling site and started to get regular work. 2 years later, I progressed into the fetish side, as my enthusiasm for straight modelling was drying up. Working under the name Mistress Hallie Brooke, I soon built a successful reputation, as I was a young, attractive, dominant woman, standing out from all the other matriarchal-looking women who inhabited the shadowy world of Dominatrixes. I had not always had a dominant persona. As a child, I could have been described as a ‘wallflower’. But as I grew older, I changed. In the back of my mind, I had always had an interest in kinky and taboo things, and as a young woman in my early 20's, I liked the idea of tie and tease, bondage, and role-play. I liked dressing up in uniforms and acting out a character. I had never planned on being a Dominatrix but it seemed to be a natural progression from modelling. When I eventually found a willing partner, who also liked the idea of trying kinky things, we rushed to a local sex shop and invested in some handcuffs, as well as a collar with handcuffs attached. We had fun trying them out. The rest is history and you can read all about it The Story of Control.
