By day, Christine DePetrillo teaches fifth grade and inspires young writers. By night, she writes everything. Adult romance, young adult romance, science fiction, fantasy, poetry, pieces about nature, and pretty much anything else that pops into her head. She can't NOT write. She's tried, but The Voices won't let her. They insist she writes their tales.
Today, she tells stories meant to make you laugh, maybe make you sweat, and definitely make you believe in the magic of love.

"I live through my words, writing to let others indulge in fantasies, dreams and temptations that they might otherwise be too unwilling or afraid to reveal in real life."
I love writing stories, sci-fi, paranormal and fantasy the most with romance and a certain amount of heat to them.

Jen Greyson writes award-winning and bestselling NA romances, including fantastical time travel and steamy contemporaries. When she's not writing her own stories, she ghostwrites them for New York Times and USA Today Bestselling authors. She is a voracious reader and longs for books that entrap her for hours and transport her to other worlds (mostly so she doesn't have to vacuum) and is always eager for a recommendation.
A recovering horse addict, she grew up with hay in her hair and manure on her shoes. Now a suburban housewife and mom, she's taken her competitive sportsmanship to the water and is learning how to wakeboard without any more trips to the ER.

Danica was born and raised in the wilds of South Louisiana where mosquitoes are big enough to carry off small children and there are only two seasons: hot and hotter. With a BA in History, she figured there were enough fry cooks in the world and decided to try her hand at writing.
Writing is how she gives the voices in her head a way out. They speak to her constantly wanting their stories told and she does her best to accommodate them. When she isn't writing, working, or contemplating the complexities of the universe, she spends time gathering inspiration from her insane family, reads far more than any sane person would want to, and watches hot burly men chase an oblong ball all over a field.

Kathleen Bacus's path to publication can certainly be described as "the road less traveled." A pioneer for women in law enforcement, she was one of the first female state troopers in Iowa, and learned two very valuable lessons that have served her well in her pursuit of a professional writing career: never give up and never stop laughing. The mother of triplets, Kathleen began writing when she was basically homebound with four children under the age of three. She says,"Writing was my way of getting away from it all--without ever leaving the house!"

If Cleo isn't writing (or reading!) erotica, she's probably sitting on her balcony, watching the wind blow through the trees. She loves snowstorms, piña coladas, horses, and pasta primavera. If she won the lottery, she would hire an assistant to take care of the technical side of e-publishing so that she could write all day.
Some random facts about Cleo:
1. Thinks life's too short to forgo HEAs and HFNs.
2. Sprained an ankle joining the mile-high club. (Never again!)
3. Favorite writers include Cormac Mccarthy, Junot Diaz and Rachel Caine.
4. Gets weak-kneed for bookish guys who know how to fix things with their hands. *swoons*

She’s never mastered that particular piece of wisdom and goes through life talking to people, sharing whatever she knows or thinks, just in case they might have wondered about something but didn’t even know it. She would provide the question and answer in one go. It’s all very economical – it saves everybody a lot of time.
She now lives and works in Pretoria, South Africa, doing all of the, well you know, normal stuff.

He's written science fiction off and on since his teens, but either couldn't finish stories due to writer's block, or they were fan fiction and thus unpublishable. One day not very long ago, he got frustrated with a block and just wrote a sex scene to move the plot along. After blinking in disbelief, he discovered that that the only way he could finish stories.
After a while of conflict, he came to an uneasy truce with himself: he primarily writes erotica, but the more traditional author in him demands that his stories also have a plot beyond the sex.
