C. Hollis Gunter
I am a father of three children, and married to the only woman who I would ever marry.
We have lived in Mustang, Oklahoma for better than 20 years, while I worked at a factory nearby. Loud noise levels in the plant leave a lot of time to be introspective, and creative. Work all day, write all night. Life is good.
And I also like to avoid referring to myself in the third person. That's just messed up.

Once upon a time, there lived a writer by the name of Jami Montgomery. She was twenty when she finished her first book, and twenty-one when she finished her second and third. She has dreams beyond the imaginings of many her age, but she does not lose hope.
Jami lives in Victoria, Texas at the moment, but hopes to someday live in either New York City or Portland, Oregon. She loves her dogs, Cooper and Melody, and her family more than anything. And her friends, of course, both real and fictional.
At the moment, Jami is working on a brand new series, the second book in the Knight's Trilogy, and a murder mystery that she is writing with a movie producer. Not to mention the plot bunnies that attack her dreams at n ... read more

I am a graduate of Rutgers College of Nursing and work as a Professional Registered Nurse in the field of Perinatology. I live in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania with my husband and two children. At the age of six, I discovered the piano and classical music. A variety of music genres influences my life, and I’m encouraging a love of the arts to my daughter and son.
Reading fiction is my escape from the chaos and stress of a demanding yet rewarding profession. For me, writing transcends a good book diversion. The experience is like commuting on a New York City subway; diverse people enter and exit the scene, sometimes delays and derailment occur during creativity, and a train of thought is missed or passed b ... read more

Silly, thoughtful, sympathetic, naughty, delusional, moody, loving, begrudging... that's me in a nutshell.
I'm a full-time mom, wifey, healthcare worker, and wanna be switch. I was born and raised in a sexually repressed, strict Christian household in the bible belt of the USA. This upbringing and repression contributed to my wicked imagination and writing has been my only outlet for my sexual fantasies. Finally at the ripe old age of 40, I've mustered up enough courage to share my naughty thoughts and put pen to paper. I sincerely hope to find my niche in writing erotica in all forms, be it romance or paranormal.
I don't consider myself an author. I consider myself an avid reader above all else, and someone ... read more
