Mara Mercer was born and raised in the city she writes about, Brisbane. She was that quiet kid that always sat at the back of the class looking out the window. Instead of memorising world capitals, she was creating worlds, saving small children, flying spaceships and fighting pirates. Writing was an obvious outlet for her in adulthood, although it took her a while to discover this. But now that she has, there's no stopping her.

My name is Angela. I never would have imagined that I would be taking anything on creative writing, but one day I found myself writing a story and it turned into a novel and I realized that I loved writing it. I just got lost in the story and then other stories just started coming to me. It is a strange thing how it happens, but I simply love it. A few months later I heard of Full Sail and thought this was a perfect opportunity. I know i have the ideas and I was an okay writer, but I also knew there was more to the business and I needed to know it in order to get my books published; and I was right. I've learned so much already and will continue to learn throughout my school and career. My goal as a writer is j ... read more

For more than 40 years the author has been what some might consider – overly sexually active. She was previously married, but by choice is single, because of the lack of sexual excitement in her marriage and her partner’s unwillingness to explore. She has been in an open relationship with her present partner for more than 10 years now and finds that the openness has led to more trust and sexual excitement. And while there is an agreement for an open relationship, because they have been able to experience things together that some couples would not, they have not exercised this agreement but 3 times.

Hi I’m Charlie.
I started exploring my desires by writing erotic fiction after feeling frustrated at not being comfortable asking my ‘playmate’ at the time to explore my fantasies with me.
I sent my first erotic fiction story into an erotic short story competition after being dared by a friend and won!
After winning that competition I created a blog NaughtyGirlWrites as an outlet for my erotic fiction writing. I also like to share articles and things I find of interest.
The people in my stories are loosely based on the physical/ personal characteristics of the people I am attracted to but I mix them up so that they are never all about one person.
Everything else is pure imagination, honest ;)

We kunnen ons veel beter concentreren op wat er gaande is in Nederland en in de rest van de wereld. Mensen laten inzien dat onze omgeving aan het veranderen is en dat we daar op moeten inspelen om ervoor te zorgen dat onze maatschappij zich niet verhardt en menselijkheid weer de boventoon voert.
