Sherrie Roth grew up in Western Kansas thinking that there was no place in the universe more fascinating than outer space. After her mother vetoed astronaut as a career ambition, she went on to study journalism and physics in hopes of becoming a science writer. She published her first science fiction short story in 1979 and then waited a lot of tables while she looked for inspiration for the next story. When it finally came, it declared to her that it had to be whole book, nothing less. One night, while digesting this disturbing piece of news, she drank way too many shots of ouzo with her boyfriend. She woke up thirty-one years later demanding to know what was going on.
The boyfriend, who she had apparently lo ... read more

Having spent the last half-dozen years wandering the country, mostly for work but occasionally just because I wanted to, I finally decided to get off my rear-end and get some of the several million words I've written out into the world. Depending on the success of the first few books I'll be publishing through Smashwords, maybe I'll even get to do this full-time.
I'm a very accessible person, so if you happen to become a fan, feel free to drop me a line any time. You can even write directly to me at wherethemeatcomesfrom (at) gmail (dot) com.
Best of luck to any other erstwhile writers who have found me in this corner of the Internet, and I hope everyone keeps reading.

Writing poetry and making up stories since she was a child, Ann only started to write seriously when her children were grown. Her main ambition is to write science fiction, but along the way she got fascinated by local history and distracted by a major stroke. However, she wrote poetry about her stroke and spent her recovery writing a local history book. Taking early retirement gave her more time to concentrate on her writing.
The result is two exciting new books about little-known pieces of Swansea and Gower history:
What began with a curiosity about the heyday of Swansea Castle, resulted in Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth, the only book about Alina de Breos and the part that Swansea and Gower played i ... read more

A Mississippi native, Stephen H. King was moved in high school entirely against his will from the small town of Corinth to a large city he ended up loving in southern California.

After existing for several more decades, Scott graduated from college in 2004 with a degree in history and political science. Six months later he decided he wanted to be a writer, which made the degree largely worthless. Oops.
Scott has written many novels in genres ranging from science fiction to political satire. He tried combining the two genres once, but he didn't think anyone would be interested in a sex scandal involving the President of Blargon 7.

Having been an avid reader and story-scribbler from an early age, Gina loves being fortunate enough to fill her days writing.

Zinnia Fox is an author, a grad student, and -- she has it on good authority -- a very, very naughty girl. She loves sunsets, candlelight dinners, and long walks on the beach, all of which are probably euphemisms for much more exciting and less cliche ways to enjoy a date. Oh, and erotica. That's good too.
Follow me on Twitter at ShelbySaks
If you didn’t already figure it out, I write erotica. I’ve always loved to write. When I started writing I found I always drifted to the sex part no matter what the story line. Regardless of what anyone says, sex is a driving force behind almost everything people do. Think about it.
Anyway, I like to write about things people think about, but maybe never say or do in real life. Not sure why people are so inhibited except for what society tells us is right or wrong, how we should behave or approach sex or maybe past experience has jaded the whole idea that sex can be enjoyable, sometimes raunchy, exploratory, taboo, but in the end, beautiful.
