When taking the Myers-Briggs personality test in high school, Kimberly was rated as an INFJ (Introverted-Intuitive-Feeling-Judging). This result sent her into a panic, because there were no career paths recommended for the type. Fortunately, it turned out to be well-suited to a writing career. Since receiving that dismal outlook, Kimberly has become an award-winning author of romance and erotica. She has written for seven publishing houses, both domestic and international, and has recently focused her efforts on the exciting world of self-publishing. When not writing, she enjoys movies, sports, traveling, music, and sunshine. In her mind, a beach, some rock 'n' roll, and a good book make for a perfect day.

I created Charlie Breeze, the main character in my Teen/Young Adult novel "Out of Sync" about 5 years ago and have tinkered with the novel very little up until the summer of 2012. The book is now ready to share with the world.
Oh, by the way, that picture is of me when I was about 15. I'm 47 now but it just amuses me so much (and makes me so proud) as to how much my 16 year old son looks like me way back then. A little self indulgence never hurt anyone.

As a child, Annette can remember spending countless hours hanging out her father's airplane hangar. There's not much for a little girl to do there so she relied on her imagination. She'd sit on the ground outside the hangar - the scent of motor oil and fresh grass mixing into a beloved concoction that's still an oddly comforting scent to me today - and daydream. She recalls making up crazy stories. Leaves came alive and shared their tales. Mice would go on epic adventures. And of course as Annette matured, so did her characters - eventually a penchant for storytelling evolved into a love for romance and romantic fiction.
Today, Annette has more ideas than she knows what to do with. She's been a professional bo ... read more

For 30 years (since 1972) I was an "Apatheist", and in the atheist closet. I wasn't overly concerned with what most people were doing with their beliefs. I felt they were nonsensical, but they didn't really concern me. That is, until September of 2001 when followers of Islam flew planes into the Twin Towers in New York City and the Pentagon.
At the time that happened, I was reading Carl Sagan's book "A Demon Haunted World", which among other things vividly outlined some of the atrocities that religion had perpetrated upon the world throughout history. This included the 300 years of torture and oppression during the Spanish inquisition, the harmful effects of religion's opposition to the advancement of science ... read more

I'm fairly new to writing and publishing, but BDSM has been at the core of my being for as long as I've been aware. My pen-name is Sensei. The word is of Japanese origin, though I don't have any cultural or familial connections of that sort. Its literal meaning is simply an elder, but it has come to have a meaning more akin to a teacher or a coach (it is often used in martial arts dojos as a title for an instructor). For me, it's important that a dominant be a figure of leadership for his submissive. It is in that leadership that the dom truly earns the service the submissive supplies.
My writing is a way for me to explore ideas rooted in dominance and submission. I hope that you enjoy my work.
