Author has written 6 stories for Lord of the Rings.

I live for good fiction. I can't get enough of it.

In fact, I'm so bent on good fiction that I've recently opened a publication for genre erotica, by women for women. Did your pulse just peak? Then Guiltless Pleasure Publishing may be just the place for you. Check out my homepage for information about the debuting novel, fun polls, and a warm forum community.

Hope to see you there!
