About Us

[In alphabetical order by first name]

Annabeth Leong

I've always been a writer, and I've always been obsessed with sex, but it didn't occur to me to put the two together until after I'd gotten a graduate degree in writing and spent years working as a journalist.


I had a friend who obviously had something to say with his writing, and I wondered if I did as well. I sat down and gave myself permission to find out. The result was "Robot Lovers Prey on the Lonely," and it dismayed me. It was far too dirty, I thought, and so girly and mushy (which, at the time, were bad words to me).



It turns out, however, that most of what I have to say as a writer is about sex, in all its wonderful, messy glory. I am frequently confused about my sexuality and sexual desires, but that just gives me more to think and write about.



My work has appeared in dozens of anthologies and counting, including Best Bondage Erotica 2013 (Cleis), Girl Crush: Women's Erotic Fantasies (Cleis), Dirty Little Numbers (Go Deeper), and Whispers in Darkness: Lovecraftian Erotica (Circlet). I've also written a number of standalone erotic novels and novellas for publishers such as Sweetmeats Press, Loose Id, and Forbidden Fiction. I am a proud contributor to various publications put out by the erotic altruists at Coming Together. My work ranges from sweet erotic romance to no-holds-barred fetish erotica, and includes a variety of gender pairings. I have a particular interest in solo stories (because people have sex lives even when they're alone).



I now live in Providence, Rhode Island, but was born in Hawaii and have spent time in many other states between now and then. I buy more books than I should, am a sucker for whatever food I've never tried, and enjoy violent sports.

Ashe Barker



Ashe whiles away her time in the wilds of West Yorkshire, in the north of England, writing smutty books and drinking Earl Grey tea. At the last count she had over thirty titles on general release, many featuring BDSM, always hot, with complex characters and compelling plots. Ashe writes MM and Mf, contemporary and historical, with the occasional threesome thrown in. 
 
When not writing Ashe enjoys messing around with digital photography, reading erotic stories, pole dancing (though not especially well), walking her dogs, and listening to Bon Jovi. Loud.

I love to hear from readers. You can find me on my blog, and on the Totally Bound site. I’m on Facebook, and twitter and now on Tsu as well. I’m on Pinterest too, and Goodreads


C. Sanchez-Garcia

At this particular time in a wandering, often bizarre and unexpected life, C. Sanchez-Garcia is living quietly in eastern Georgia, where the size of his personal library is bursting the walls of his little house. He stubbornly believes in passion, God, sensuality and spirituality, and that a good love story is life's finest medicine for melancholy. He is the author of the erotic novellas Mortal Engines and the Color of the Moon and the charity erotica collection Coming Together Presents: C. Sanchez-Garcia. Several of his stories have been published in various volumes of the Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica and Coming Together anthologies as well as the Erotica Readers and Writers Association's online gallery and permanent archives. If you would like to meet the author you will find him on Facebook and at the ERWA writer's blog where Sanchez-Garcia's blog appears hell or high water on the 15th of every month.

Cameron D. James

Cameron D. James is a life-long lover of books, voraciously reading everything from the classics to sci-fi, romance to science and nature, and thrillers to erotica. Understandably, a love of books led to a love of writing, having penned his first story in grade seven (about stolen baseball cards). Having written millions of words by now, Cameron now focuses on one of his favourite genres — gay erotica.

Cameron is a fan of Star Trek, having seen every episode of every series (including the animated series) and every movie at least twice. In addition to Star Trek, Cameron also loves physical exercise and seeing how far he can push his body. He’s taken kickboxing, Bikram hot yoga (that’s the super hot and tough one), diving, personal training at the gym, and likes his regular Wii workouts (seriously, they’re a lot more intense than they look).

Other interests include listening to electronica music (particularly Armin Van Buuren), puttering around the house (and attempting to grow a garden), and gawking at cute twink baristas at the various coffee shops where he’s such a regular that he’s known by first name.

Daddy X

Daddy X always wanted to be a dirty old man.

He survived the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and George W. Bush. He maintained a determined, if unstable trajectory throughout Catholic school, a paper route, muskrat trapping, a steel mill, Bucks County, the Haight Ashbury, North Beach, Castro Street, the Mendocino Coast, the SF bar business, drug addiction, alcoholism, a stroke, Hep C, cancer, a liver transplant, a year of chemo, a stickup at his ancient and tribal art gallery while tied to his desk (not as cool as it sounds), a triple bypass, and George W. Bush.

Now he’s old, and it’s time to get dirty.

Daddy is currently published by Naughty Nights Press, House of Erotica, and is featured in Cleis Press' Best Bondage Erotica 2015. He is a frequent contributor to the Erotica Readers and Writers Association where he serves as Gallery editor. Many of Daddy's works are also available in the ERWA Treasure Chest.

He’s been with the long-suffering Momma X (greatest editor on earth) for fifty years, but she thinks his stuff is too skievy to deal with. They live in northern California with an epileptic 90 lb lop-eared hound (17” wingspan) and two cats.

Giselle Renarde

Giselle Renarde is a queer Canadian, avid volunteer, contributor to more than 100 short story anthologies, and award-winning author of novels and novellas such as Anonymous, Ondine, and Nanny State. Giselle loves a geeky girl and lives across from a park with two bilingual cats who sleep on her head.

Ms. Renarde’s anthology My Mistress’ Thighs: Erotic Transgender Fiction and Poetry received an Honourable Mention in the 2011 Rainbow Awards, and her book The Red Satin Collection took top prize in the same category in 2012. She is a contributor to Tristan Taormino’s Lambda Award-winning book Take Me There: Trans and Genderqueer Erotica, as well as such notable anthologies as Best Women's Erotica, Best Lesbian Erotica, Best Bondage Erotica, and Best Lesbian Romance.

The anthology will be published by the local university press. An article of hers is due to appear in From the Coffin to the Classroom: Teaching the Vampire (McFarland Press), in 2014.

She writes more fiction than non-fiction, and over ninety of her erotic stories, including every orientation she can think of, have appeared in print anthologies, two single-author collections: Obsession, now out of print, and Each Has a Point (Love You Divine), plus a novella of the 1860s, The Flight of the Black Swan (Lethe Press). A collection of her her historical lesbian erotica will be released by Lethe in fall 2013.

Lisabet Sarai
 
Lisabet Sarai became addicted to words at an early age. She began reading when she was four. She wrote her first story at five years old and her first poem at seven. Since then, she has written plays, tutorials, scholarly articles, marketing brochures, software specifications, self-help books, press releases, a five-hundred page dissertation, and lots of erotica and erotic romance – nearly fifty single author titles, plus dozens of short stories in various erotic anthologies, including the Lambda winner Where the Girls Are and the IPPIE Best Erotic Book of 2011, Carnal Machines. Her gay scifi erotic romance Quarantine won a Rainbow Awards 2012 Honorable Mention.

In addition to writing, Lisabet also edits erotica and erotic romance. Her editing credits include the ground breaking anthology Sacred Exchange, which explores the spiritual aspects of BDSM, the massive collection Cream: The Best of the Erotica Readers and Writers Association, the charity anthology Coming Together: In Vein, a collection of vampire tales that benefits Doctors Without Borders, and six volumes of the Coming Together: Presents series of single author charitable erotica books. You'll also find her writing the newsletter and a monthly blog article for the Erotica Readers and Writers Association (www.erotica-readers.com and erotica-readers.blogspot.com).

Lisabet has more degrees than anyone would ever need, from prestigious educational institutions who would no doubt be deeply embarrassed by her chosen genre. She has traveled widely and currently lives in Southeast Asia with her indulgent husband and two exceptional felines, where she pursues an alternative career that is completely unrelated to her creative writing.

Willsin Rowe

Willsin Rowe falls in love with a scent, a playful expression or an act of casual intimacy more easily than with physical beauty. When confronted by any combination of these he is a lost cause.

He has done many things over and over. He has done even more things only once. He has half-done more things than he cares to admit.

He is intelligent but not sensible. He is polite but inappropriate. He is passionate but fearful. He is honest but reticent. He is not scruffy enough nor stylish enough to be cool.

Willsin has worked concurrently as a musician and graphic designer for almost three decades, and as a sought-after cover artist since 2009, with many Amazon Top 100 covers to his credit. But as with most authors, his first love was always the written word, and he has been taking writing seriously since his first published book in early 2006.
