I have been writing for most of my life, personally and professionally, in a number of different outlets and genres - I have written prose, short stories, freelanced for multiple pornographic magazines, and even done some ad-copy. Writing is my life. I love nothing better than sitting down and tapping a story out on my laptop. No, that's not entirely true, I love a number of other things too (running, movies, sex, a small batch bourbon, backpacking, hiking, etc.), but I especially love to write.
The Blue Futanari series is the latest thing to sprout from my imagination and it has been a great deal of fun (sometimes hot and sweaty fun) to write. Alexys is a super exciting character As a human turned futanar ... read more

Roman New grew up surrounded by the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains in Chillicothe, Ohio. It was here that he learned the spiritual values he writes about in this, his first book.
When he writes: “There is value in patience when we have reached the limit of human security,” he does not just put words to paper… he has experienced what it is like to reach the limits.
Out of the depths of insecurity he has been able to write: “We would be very insecure people if we were inwardly bankrupt or prohibited from entering the presence of the special spirit.”
Roman has learned the lessons of the Values of A Spiritual Mind and shares his insight into what these values are. His goal is to live in a contin ... read more

Hi! I'm Jen...and I love the Lord and how He speaks! I have been writing for a really, really long time, and my dad always joked with me, "Are you writing a book?" Little did I know that would become a fulfilled prophecy!

I have a bad habit sometimes of looking everywhere online for answers before I finally ask God what He has to say! (Who can relate!?) Oopsies! :)
