ONCE UPON A TIME, a seven-year-old girl put the finishing touches on her latest masterpiece. The house was littered with them. Little stories that came from who knew where in her head. By eleven, she decided it was time to release a bestseller and sent a gritty horror novel to Penguin (it was a novella really – but she was smaller then). She’d like to take this opportunity to thank Penguin for their kind and encouraging letter of 1996 – hopefully you’ll be hearing of her.
Penguin said, ‘Don’t stop writing.’ But ten years later and what had happened to that wonder; that wit; that imagination; that self-belief in being a best-seller waiting to happen? It was all still there – just buried like hop ... read more

Serena Biggs is a happily married heterosexual woman with a high libido. Most of her stories are taken from fantasies she wrote when she was in her twenties. She had a lot of jobs that let her mind wander and her lust soar. Fantasies starring guys she had a crush on became the norm. She started writing them down so she could go back to them. They’ve been added to and fleshed out to make them sizzling reads. She likes to push her own buttons and tries to write things that turn her on yet make her uncomfortable.
She lives in Canada with her husband. She’s not telling if they’ve tried any of the things in her stories or not but you can ask her anything else.
