Firmly ensconced in the business world, I have a Masters in Business Administration, and SPHR certification. The business world has been good to me, although my passions lie with the written word. I wrote poetry from a small age and dabbled with short stories. I always dreamed of writing a novel. With the idea for Sinful Purity that
dream became a reality.
A native of Southern California I enjoy sunny days, and palm trees year around. I live with my husband and teenage son along with a very friendly Bloodhound and two mini Dachshund brothers. My son who has tried everything from the drums and guitar to football and drag racing can frequently be found written in to my books.

Alan was born in Poole, Dorset, England on October 1st 1948. As a child, he lived in Canada for a few years in what was then a tiny settlement called Malton near Toronto, Ontario. He went to his first school in the village, a one-room school that was quite basic but typical of the times, in those outlying areas of the Canadian countryside.
Later in life he travelled to Western Australia where he worked as a design draughtsman and, in his spare-time, played drums with a very active band called ‘Unicorn’.
Eventually, Alan returned to England, where he found a winter season of high unemployment and a frosty cold that he'd forgotten about. After a couple of dead-end jobs he joined the Royal Navy and quickly wor ... read more

Kate Canterbary doesn't have it all figured out, but this is what she knows for sure: spicy-ass salsa and tequila solve most problems, living on the ocean--Pacific or Atlantic--is the closest place to perfection, and writing smart, smutty stories is a better than any amount of chocolate. She started out reporting for an indie arts and entertainment newspaper back when people still read newspapers, and she has been writing and surreptitiously interviewing people—be careful sitting down next to her on an airplane—ever since. Kate lives on the water in New England with Mr. Canterbary and the Little Baby Canterbary, and when she isn't writing sexy architects, she's scheduling her days around the region's best f ... read more

R. D. Hale
I, as one of the more sensible voices in R. D. Hale's wretched brain, have been tasked with the responsibility of introducing you to the author and his debut novel - Sky City: The Rise of an Orphan.
It is fair to say R. D. Hale is an idiot. Hailing from a council estate in a cold, wet place inhabited by football hooligans and dole bums, Hale was nothing short of a waste of space. He was disenfranchised due to genetic incompetence and unacceptable hygiene. And so he channelled his unjustified frustrations at the world in which he was trapped, by scrawling on his bedroom walls with you-don't-wanna-know-what. This process taught him a way with words (it is just unfortunate that 'way' is decipherable only to hims ... read more

My erotica writing started a few years ago, when an ex-boyfriend found some nasty stories I had written about having sex with one of my girlfriend's father.

My family was peripatetic. As a result, I lived in different countries and environments, garnering a vast hoard of life experiences along the way. Those experiences, and the way I reacted towards them, were colored by my grandmother, with whom my family lived for a time during my childhood. It was when she died that my family uprooted itself and went traveling. My grandmother was a formidable character who valued reading, writing and the power of words, and my own experience of losing myself in wonderfully written stories became a joy I learned to value.
