Carol Burnside is an award-winning author traditionally published in short stories. Five of her novel length manuscripts have placed in numerous RWA chapter contests and won five, including the prestigious Maggie Award for Excellence. Her personal second-chance-at-love story resulted in a marriage to her high school sweetheart of thirty-plus years. They reside in northern Arkansas, where Carol enjoys the Ozark foothills from her office windows and drinks sweet iced tea year round.
Writing as Annie Rayburn, she produces speculative fiction, erotic romances. Imagine our world today with a humanoid race very much like us (Crainesians) living peacefully among us here on Earth and searching for their life-mate. They have the ability to communicate telepathically, can project visions and share dreams. Can you imagine? Not just phone sex, but dream sex? That's why they're also labeled soft sci-fi and lite paranormal. Talk about cross-genre sizzle!
While Carol/Annie enjoys the adoration she receives from her furbabies, what she really loves is hearing from her readers.

Annie Rayburn expands her Crainesians' world with Phantoms and Fantasies and gives women, human and Crainesian alike, a satisfying glimpse into a erotic relationship that begins in the mind.
Zee and Turk's story begins with a Halloween date that goes sour due to an ugly memory resurfacing. Zee, a rape victim, has done everything possible to heal, but only Turk can complete the process. Will she let him? is the journey Ms.Rayburn takes us on.
Three things I love about Ms.Rayburn's world that she creates here: 1) Women know satisfying sexual encounters begin in our brains.Thanks to Crainesian dream sharing, Zee and Turk show humans how it's done. 2)Her couples actually talk and get to know each other before doing the horizontal tango. Other erotica I've read have them doing it three words after Hello. And 3)... oh, you need to read the book for #3. Trust me, you'll love how Ms.Rayburn turns dating and mating rituals on its head with her Crainesians.
