I love Elmore Leonard's 10 rules of writing and the bold concept of Superman's Fortress of Solitude as a writer's retreat.

Born on December 27, 1988, I began taking fond of writing in middle school when I wrote poems for a book that was later published (I cannot remember the name of it, but I enjoyed seeing my words published in a book.) In high school, I took honors English in my sophomore and junior years, and took advance placement English in my senior year.
In 2007, I graduated high school and attended Michigan State University becoming an alumnus in 2011. Ironically, I wanted to become a lawyer, but at the same time, I did not because I hated writing. Not to say I was not a good writer, I just hated writing on subjects that I did not want to. I enjoyed writing about what I felt or for my pleasure.
When I was a kid, I enjoyed ... read more

I have much experience concerning sex and writing. I just combined the two. I'm a spicy and mature Italian man, just barely over 50.

I grew up as a geeky, quiet and shy boy from 'da Bronx, New York. Back in 1982 I was one of the first successful video store entrepreneurs in the US.

P N Phan grew up in the arctic tundra known as Canada and aspires to one day ride her bicycle around the world. All she'd need would be her shoes, a warm coat, and a helmet. Everything else, she'd consume minimally. She'd ride to towns with a gas station, then move on to ones with grocers, bakers, and pie makers. Down lanes with orchards, over hills with meadows, and collect everything as she carries on. She'd ride and ride, and when she does not want to ride anymore, she would share with you her stories. And as you read them, including the odd and wicked, the brave and suspicious, you might just think that she had rode through them all.

Hi I'm Stina! Some things that are interesting about me ( Well I think they are) are: I have three boys, I have been with my husband for 13 years. I write romance, paranormal, NA, YA, and all of the above. I really don't want to label myself as one type of author. I might choose to write something completely out of my norm, but that's how life is. It's better that way. I found out I had a passion for writing when I was little and I wrote poetry as an outlet for all my emotions.

À propos de l'auteur
Lassana Toure est né en 1987, à Bamako(Mali). Il vit actuellement à Grenoble(France).
Étant un grand fan de livres, de cinéma et de mangas, il s'est rendu compte qu'il avait une bonne analyse des scénarios. À partir de ce moment, il s'est dit que s'il était autant capable de voir les lacunes d'une histoire, c'est qu'il devait être en mesure d'en créer.
L'histoire de son premier Roman "TOTEMS" lui est venue à l'âge de vingt trois ans. Il lui faudra alors près de deux ans d'écriture pour lui donner forme, et en faire une oeuvre dotée d'une rare originalité.

When taking the Myers-Briggs personality test in high school, Kimberly was rated as an INFJ (Introverted-Intuitive-Feeling-Judging). This result sent her into a panic, because there were no career paths recommended for the type. Fortunately, it turned out to be well-suited to a writing career. Since receiving that dismal outlook, Kimberly has become an award-winning author of romance and erotica. She has written for seven publishing houses, both domestic and international, and has recently focused her efforts on the exciting world of self-publishing. When not writing, she enjoys movies, sports, traveling, music, and sunshine. In her mind, a beach, some rock 'n' roll, and a good book make for a perfect day.

Oh, by the way, that picture is of me when I was about 15. I'm 47 now but it just amuses me so much (and makes me so proud) as to how much my 16 year old son looks like me way back then. A little self indulgence never hurt anyone.

As a child, Annette can remember spending countless hours hanging out her father's airplane hangar. There's not much for a little girl to do there so she relied on her imagination.

She recalls making up crazy stories. Leaves came alive and shared their tales. Mice would go on epic adventures. And of course as Annette matured, so did her characters - eventually a penchant for storytelling evolved into a love for romance and romantic fiction.
