A freelance writer and aspiring novelist. And also, apparently, a duelist ( Who says artist, says duelist). Author of the upcoming novel Count Morelli.
I have been a journalist, a teacher, and an editor. I briefly flirted with the idea of becoming a fitness instructor, but then I realized that what I enjoy most is flirting with actual people… oh yes, and writing novels. I am passionate about all things swashbuckling and seafaring, and when I’m not duelling or writing about duelling I can be found at a martial arts studio or a local spa — or a martial arts spa. I live in Vancouver, Canada.

Hi, I’m Katina French, aka KatFrench: gen-x wife, mom, writer, web marketing nerd and follower of Christ.
I’ve been married for over twenty years(!) to my high school sweetheart. We live in southern Indiana near Louisville, KY with two amazingly creative, funny, opinionated kids.
Writing has been what I love doing most since I was five, and my vocation since I was 18. I’ve written everything from lullabies to radio commercials to technical specifications for military weapons simulators. I've written social content from the perspective of a brassiere, a beach, an automotive battery and a bottle of bourbon (yes, my marketing career has clearly been brought to you by the letter "B").

Follow me on Twitter at suepainter1
Ever since I was about 6 years old I have known two things:
First, we are all connected at a deep level I did not then understand, but sensed. And second, humans have an incredible ability to imagine, create, and be visionaries for themselves and others. We respond to those around us who are visionary, people who help us see how remarkable we are. But we also can become visionaries for our own life - no matter our circumstance. I "see" what others can become, and I've done that for thousands for people in my work. But what I most love is teaching you how to be your own visionary self. Because with vision and work, you truly can make yourself a life that serves you.
I can tell you about me - where I was born (N ... read more

I am an accidental author. The books I have written started out as bedtime stories I made up for my daughter. After telling her the same story every night for an entire year I decided that I would have the story illustrated and print a single copy for her as a gift. As I showed family and friends, someone gave me the idea of self publishing as an e-book. So, here I am a self published childrens author hoping that readers will find value in the messages each story has to offer.

Violet Jessamy’s thoughts do not always revolve around sex - just most of the time. She believes that this fact, along with her hyperactive imagination, is to blame for her choice of secondary career. Having developed a passionate interest in erotica as soon as she figured out it existed, she credits the internet in general for allowing her to pursue said interest and tolerating her early attempts at creating the perfect arousing tale.
She also writes non-erotic fiction, but gets far more enjoyment out of writing smutty stories.

I started my obsession with reading at an early age, getting in trouble for sneaking BabySitter Club and Nancy Drew books into math class in elementary school. I would read any fiction book I could get my hands on. I knew it was an addiction when instead of grounding me from TV or music, my mom would take away my books as punishment (The Horror!). My love of all things paranormal was inspired by my good friend Laurie, who convinced me that books with vampires, witches, and all things shifter were amazing. After a little reluctance, I gave it a shot with the Sookie Stackhouse books, realized she was right, and the rest was history.
