Connie Wilkins always intended to write speculative fiction, and did place stories in such venues as Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Fantasy Magazine, Strange Horizons, and several anthologies including two of Bruce Coville’s books for children. Then somewhere along the way she got sidetracked by the erotic side of the force. Her alter ego Sacchi Green has published short fiction in dozens of erotica anthologies, including seven volumes of Best Lesbian Erotica. Many of these have had historical settings, and a few have included specfic elements, the true loves that she’s been overjoyed to combine in Time Well Bent. She has also edited or co-edited five anthologies of lesbian erotica, Rode Hard, Put Away Wet; Lipstick on Her Collar; Hard Road, Easy Riding; and Lesbian Cowboys (all with Rakelle Valencia, the first two being finalists for the Lambda Award), as well as Girl Crazy: Coming Out Erotica.
