Laura Roberts was born in 1978 and immediately began writing the story of her life, after staring up at a spinning mobile above her crib for a sufficient period of time and thinking, “I could do better than that.” Though the intervening years have seen her scribbling in notebooks, Harriet the Spy-style, as well as concocting rude gossip rags about her friends and family (hello, “Gossip World!”), she first debuted her special brand of insanity in a university-level screenwriting class, where her final project was a Hal Hartley-inspired fanfic tribute to David Duchovny whose climax saw the protagonist wielding two menacing halves of Immanuel Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason in a boxing match against Duchovny’s real-life wife, Téa Leoni. She received an A from her professor, as well as the astute comment, “You got away with a lot.”
She has been getting away with a lot more ever since, including crime fiction, erotica, sex columns, an honors degree in Creative Writing and English Literature, thinly veiled tracts against her former home base in Austin, Texas, and a ninja versus pirates cavalcade.
Laura is the author of NINJAS OF THE 512, aka the best novel you’ll ever read about pirates, ninjas and evil politicians in Austin, Texas. Her second novel, NAKED MONTREAL, about her time as a sex columnist in the Sin City of the North, is available in serial format. She is also pondering a ninja follow-up that features ninjas versus robots. In her copious spare time, Laura curates the cheeky literary magazine Black Heart, which features indie authors’ poetry and prose on a daily basis, and lives in an Apocalypse-proof bunker in SoCal with her artist husband and their literary kitty, Nedward Carlos Nedwards.
THE PORTABLE LAURA ROBERTS is Laura’s most egotistical anthology to date, but she hopes her friends and fans will be amused by this diversion while they await the completion of her next novel.

17 Things You Never Knew About Val Capone

Book 4: What He Needs
Billionaire Shane Trant is used to getting what he wants. What he can’t buy, he takes. When he sees Bristol Deatrich for the first time in over ten years, he knows he wants her. But there’s a problem. Only complete possession of her mind and body will satisfy him. He’s not sure the sweet little Bristol is ready for his brand of extreme carnal play.
But that’s not going to stop him from trying. After all, he learned a long time ago, nobody wins if they don’t take risks. If this risk pays off, they’ll both win.
Four steamy fantasies in four historical settings:
Anselm is a young novice at Worston Abbey. If he is to become a monk, he must maintain his vows. He follows the Vow of Obedience when Brother Cedric sends him to the luscious local herbalist, Ysabel, but once there he find his commitment to the Vow of Chastity is severely tested.
Petals and Pistons
Now that her husband Edgar is dead, Mrs. Adelaide Portsmythe is on a mission. She will travel up the Amazon in search of the fabled orchid, Queen of the Night. Like all good Victorian ladies, Mrs. Portsmythe is sensible, demure and modest. Until she meets the devilishly wicked Captain Rodriguez, that is. By the end of the voyage Adelaide has discovered that seeking pleasure is a goal in its own right.
A gang of marauders raid the town of Elleshire on market day. Aisla runs for her life but is abducted and trapped in a cave with the brigand’s anonymous leader. She wakes up blindfolded and naked on furs in front of the firelight. The brigand proceeds to use her perfect skin in very creative ways – and not at all how Aisla expects. Just who is this unusual man?
A Gifted Physician
What ails the lovely Lady Mary? She has taken to her bed and lies about in the ornate four-poster, complaining of fever and weakness. She insists that only the handsome physician, Edmund, can cure her. And there is only one cure she seeks. Edmund tries to resist, but the Lady is most persistent.

You won’t need three wishes after this one (but you might need a cigarette!).
You never know who you’ll fall in love with, or why, or whether it’s a good idea – ask Rowan in A Star, A Stone. A sudden rainstorm – Stormy Weather – or even an exercise class – The Queen of Heaven – can be the spark that creates abandon and exhilarating passion between two lovers. In Dolce, a full-course Italian meal prepared with love whets . . . other appetites.
The stories in Perfect Need explore what love and passion can become, how they can affect two people for a moment, or for a lifetime; when they tumble into a love they never expected; when they decide it’s worth the risk to stay . . . or not.
