I never imagined myself writing erotic fiction. The closest I ever came was a brief dream in my youth of writing a Mills & Boon novel. (If you think that's cringe-worthy remember I was YOUNG!)Back then I looked at all the sad people slogging away unhappily in their mundane jobs and pitied them. You see, I was special, made for greater things. I had no doubt my writing would propel me to the tops of the best seller lists and I’d live happily, if somewhat smugly, ever after. My 9-5 job was as boring as the rest of them, but that didn’t matter. It was all temporary.
It soon became evident that finishing a novel was a little trickier than I’d hoped. The years went by, and I married and had two children. I al ... read more

Chloe Behrens was born in Hudson Valley, NY into an Italian/Sicilian family. She now resides in the suburbs of Dallas, TX.
"I fell in love with writing as soon as I learned how to read," she says. "Picture books progressed into lovelorn poetry. Poetry turned into short stories, and then the Van Steenburgh Family began in my teenage years. The story began, and then it wasn't until my early twenties that the second novel in the series came out. The last novel in the series was written this year. It was hard to put it to rest after it being with me for so many years." Still, she triumphed on.
After the release of her Van Steenburgh saga, she penned two more books -- neither of which belong to a series. "Brea ... read more

From a casual first glance one could assume this book is just a boring chronicle of a family. First impressions can be wrong and certainly are in this case.
The story consists of a rollercoaster ride, right from birth in Blenheim, to childhood on a 30-cow dairy farm near Karamea on the West Coast of New Zealand where he was raised by a "devoted mother and a frustrated eccentric father".
Life was great on the Coast for youngsters with weird and wacky incidents but with a father who increasingly took to the bottle, the economics of the farm were rocky and life was full of challenges.
Then followed a teenage marriage with a child due. Graeme Horncastle gritted his teeth and was determined to make a go of it.
