Author Lori Cook Shares Their Story

About the Author Lori Cook is a pen name, although you probably guessed that! I believe that erotica is a healthy, inspiring and stimulating form of fiction. Unfortunately not everybody agrees. I work for public institutions, and because of this I’ve decided not to use my real name here. With the CARDINAL series I’ve taken my first steps into the world of erotic writing. They definitely won’t be my last. I’ve written all sorts of stuff over the years, and I’ve had a number of things published. But this has been the most fun I’ve ever had with a pen! ...

Author Annette Gisby Shares Their Story

About the Author Annette Gisby grew up in a small town in Northern Ireland, moving to London when she was seventeen. Being a very small town there were no bookshops and a small library. When she’d devoured every book she could get her hands on in the library, she started writing her own stories so she would always have something to read later. When not writing she enjoys reading, cinema, theatre, walks along deserted beaches or wandering around ruined castles (great places for inspiration!) New Zealand is her favourite place and she hopes to travel back there one day. She’s ...

Author Heath Buckley Shares Their Story

About the Author I have spent most of my career as a magazine journalist, but I think that this job simply evolved from my love of writing. Although I have to say that the last thing someone who writes for a living wants to do is to come home after a day in the office and then spend several hours focused on their latest work of fiction! I have been very lucky in that I have had the time to pursue my own original fiction. And I know what I like; I like to write books that I would like ...

Author D. L. Given Shares Their Story

b>About the Author D. L. Given lives in Ohio with her husband Bruce What inspires you to write romance books? I didn’t intend to write a romance novel, but some believe that the close relationships of the characters may have led the story in that direction. “Vital Perception” is the second book in a two book series following “The Elder Effect”. Tell us about how you write: I use no outline a take very few notes when writing. The storyline and the characters fall into place as the book progresses. Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters? When ...
