Vanessa Wu was born in Fuzhou, China, where her parents worked in the Communist Army Hospital. She educated herself on a diet of foreign literature, some of it quite respectable, including nearly everything written by Jane Austen, W. Somerset Maugham, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
She graduated from Fudan University in Shanghai and travelled in Asia and Europe where she met many interesting men before completing her sexual and academic education at Westminster University, London.
She works for a law firm in London and lives close to Greenwich Park where she can often be seen talking to people with dogs. If she had a dog of her own it would be a Beagle and she would call him Billy. If she writes enough stories and enough people buy them maybe she can give up working at that stuffy old law firm and stay at home with Billy instead, going for long walks in the park in the morning and having long, sensual daydreams in the afternoon.
Until then, she joins thousands of commuters every day on the Docklands Light Railway and spends many an idle hour anticipating her next erotic encounter.

This story tells how I tried to seduce a trainee lawyer in my office. He was gorgeous in a soft, boyish way. I fancied him like crazy but he would have been way out of his depth with me. I was twenty-eight. I liked hard, dirty, wicked men. Benedict was just a piece of fluff who blew across my path.
Still, I had my needs.

- Fall into Winter
on Aug. 25, 2011
It’s very generous of Eden to include four novellas in her book Fall Into Winter. Many writers would have published it as four books and charged you the full price for each. Then they would have brought out two double novellas before finally publishing the quadruple novella anthology.
This is what modern book marketing experts recommend.
But Eden is very generous in lots of ways. She gives us four novellas at once and she gives a lot of herself in each of these four novellas. It’s this generosity that makes them special.
In The Asian and the Austrian there’s a character called Elena. When Elena tells the handsome Austrian that she has given up her job in banking to write erotica, he asks “These are stories about sex?”
“Not exactly,” Elena replies. “They’re not about sex, but they include it.”
Lots of novels and stories include sex. But in Elena’s stories the sex is very explicit and detailed. At least, it must be if her stories are anything like Eden’s.
Part of the thrill of reading Fall Into Winter is knowing, or imagining, that all of the female protagonists are really Eden. Eden in various thin disguises.
In the Austrian and the Asian the disguise is hardly there at all. Elena is Eden at her most naked, her most vulnerable, her most honest.
Because of this, it is a very touching story. Since I am also an Asian who has been to Austria, it is a story that I can very much relate to. The things Elena notices in Austrian culture are the things I noticed too. The sense of place is so strong that at times it is just like being there. And when you are reading erotica this good, that’s exactly the right place to be.
Elena’s observations about being an Asian woman in Thailand are also very accurate. You are not Thai but people treat you as if you are and expect you to behave in the same way. Both Elena and Eden are very good at fleshing out these background details that help develop the characters.
So I enjoyed these stories as stories and I enjoyed them as erotica. If Eden hasn’t already, I urge her to go and conspire intimately with one or two close-bosom friends so she has enough material for her next quadruple anthology. I understand the bees are already buzzing about the blossoms but I can hardly wait for the whistling of the redbreast so I can pluck more fruits from Eden’s bountiful garden.
