Donald E. Swann II
just an old surfer, ex banker and former coach, with a public school education, whom (that's right I said whom) grew up with a Hawaiian taste for life, seeing life as subject matters and story lines, in exploring my ability to tell stories in complete sentences and ambitious enough to attempt to tell a compelling story making you want to turn the page... and that is a work in progress.
Sometimes the road to mediocrity is littered with kind words, that fail to tell the story and with your help, we'll follow the path to improvement with each new effort, most appreciative with your patience.

In addition to her mystery series, Ophelia has authored several romance novels, and she encourages her readers to visit her on social media...but don't call when The Vampire Diaries (or Dawson's Creek) is on.

NA Said loves to read. Later she developed the passion for writing. She started to write during her free time when she quit her desk job to give full attention to her then growing up children. But the writing was just for fun, to keep her mind busy. She stopped writing when she ventured into a small business - making used of her MBA. The business took a lot of her free time away from her hobbies. After twelve years she decided enough is enough and closed the business. Now she could not be more happier punching her laptop keys, sipping ice-lemon tea, close her tired eyes whenever she feels like it and relax her mind. Writing is the best.

I'm on Smashwords because Amazon deems my books to sexual graphic and taboo. Hope you enjoy them!
Jake Camron loves erotica—the kinkier, the hotter, the rougher, the better. Paranormal, dark fantasy, male pregnancy, bondage, S&M, even romance when he’s feeling it. His stories may not end with an HEA, but the ride will be wild and highly arousing right to the end. Jake not only writes erotica, but voraciously reads anything involving men and hot sex.
