By day, she’s a mild-mannered language teacher. But after hours, Mardi Ballou’s wild writer persona erupts and entraps her in bondage…to her computer. Release comes only once she achieves her word count goal, at which point the maniacal chocolate monster will give her one sublime piece. And then she can spend time with her hero husband Lee, who gives great massages at strategic times.
So Mardi writes what she knows—romances—hot and mainstream. In addition to independent publishing—Emergency Ex: Teach Him Tonight, Book #2 and Photo Finish: Teach Him Tonight, Book #1 are her first two—she’s written for Ellora’s Cave, Samhain, NCP, Whiskey Creek, and Changeling. Also women’s fiction. Other r ... read more

Though, is it still slander if it's all true...?
I write what I would like to read, which is crime fiction (noir? Sure, that's what it says on my website, www.glasgownoirfiction.com), with a sardonic edge. I seek to deliver vivid characters in a cityscape that itself (cliche-bomb alert) becomes one of them, enmeshed in plots that tease, mystify and delight.
Yes, there's some mayhem, but there are no ripping viscera, no splintering skulls; I don't need those to tell my tales. Yes, there are sexual encounters, because my characters have real lives, but I don't have a place in my books for lingering erotica; that ... read more
