Wendy Anne is working on a provocative four-book series, Ascension. Sage, the first book in the series exquisitely blends romance, fantasy, the metaphysical and tantalizing erotica seducing readers with sensual and mysterious plots. Drawing from her personal inspiration, including her early love of music and dark romanticism has impacted her writing making it completely unique and engaging. Growing up in an old Victorian mansion in Worcester, Massachusetts, with a wide range of electric and cultural backgrounds, Wendy Anne’s path was set to be a writer at an early age, as was her unconventional writing style. Adopted by a philanthropist, her home was filled with incredible women with great minds, but she was no stranger to the reality of growing up in what was considered one of the worst neighborhoods in the city, and she witnessed her fair share of dark situations. At an early age, she sought refuge in writing and poetry, but the confines of a traditional education led her to conceal her more provocative writing. A spirited rebel, after her favorite collection of horror fiction and personal writing journals were confiscated at school, she wore a defiant chip on her shoulder like a badge of honor to ward off any authority figures that stood between her and her passions. The badge of honor grew to become one of her greatest assets as a tireless activist advocating hundreds of causes, along with her fiery writing that arouses the chakras, awakens the kundalini.
Julie was born in Glasgow but during her 20s lived in a number of cities in England, before moving to Edinburgh. Early in 2016 she decided to write an erotic story. One of her friends encouraged her to try and get it published. So, in the autumn of 2016, her first book ‘The Spider Stockings’ was issued. By then she had already written a further book, ‘Art School Goth’ and that appeared a month later. Her books are not autobiographical but are, to some extent, based on her experiences during a rather wild period of her life in her 20s. She has a very active imagination and is very good at devising rather intense sexual encounters. She has no pretensions about being a serious novelist, as her writing is totally rooted in eroticism. She unashamedly writes dirty books. Nowadays erotic fiction tends to be written by men and primarily directed at a male readership. Julie has written a number of short erotic novellas which give a female perspective on the erotic experience. She normally writes in the first person to draw the reader directly into the action giving a sense of immediacy. For Julie, sex is pure fun, she avoids sinking into presenting depravity, unpleasantness, exploitative and not entirely consensual relationships, but instead writes stimulating sex scenes often with an underlying thread of humour. Her female characters are strong and confident in themselves, and often find amusement in their relationships with the men they meet, teasing and playing games and usually getting the better of them. Julie portrays women like herself, with strong characters, not the entirely submissive image presented in most male written erotica.
Anna Battle is on a mission. To write erotic fiction for grown-ups. Anna’s characters desire intimacy and great sex — after all forty is the new twenty — but can’t ignore that life is a perpetual juggling act to corral children, jobs, finances, friends, ex-spouses, online dating, confounding smartphones, and a sudden stash of reading glasses. They seek comfort in the dream of romance…, but learn self-empowerment may be the ultimate reward if they explore the expanding realm of sexual novelty and freedom. Anna is an attorney (currently working on strategies to prevent sexual harassment in the STEM fields) and writer. Awake is her debut novel in the erotic genre. Her short stories have appeared in numerous anthologies and journals. Anna shares custody of her two children and commutes regularly between Maryland and Washington state. She can often be found on the tennis court playing competitive doubles.
Stella Fosse is an erotica writer, the author of Aphrodite’s Pen: The Power of Writing Erotica after Midlife, and a late bloomer whose erotic life blossomed in her late 50s. In 2016, Fosse co-founded a group for women 50+ called Elderotica Writers, with monthly meetings to share story writing and friendship. Fosse’s story “Terraforming,” about the friendship between a bookish woman in her 60s and a well-endowed cowboy, appeared in the 2017 anthology, Dirty Old Women, and she has read at the quarterly Dirty Old Women literary event in Oakland, California. Stella’s collaborative project, The Palace of Wisdom, is based on an imaginary erotic spa in Big Sur for women over 50 and includes floor-plans, activities and rules, which she shares in workshops and online. Fosse advocates writing erotica as a great way for older women to push back on ageism and sexism. She is retired from a career in biotechnology and lives with her partner in North Carolina.
