I’m a Happily Married, MUM of 2 very loved children. One is a teenager… so far (fingers crossed) a great one.
I LOVE Music… I should do as I am the daughter of Musicians; I was reared with a Guitar in one hand and a pen in the other.
I’m originally from London and am now living somewhere, in the Irish countryside, with cows (the four legged kind) as neighbours. We live on a small farm in a village (no I do not DO milking or anything farmy… I have nails lol).
I’ve had the big high-flying career and gave it and London. up for ‘LOVE’ (yep sucker lol) and would do it again a hundred times over to marry and have babies.
I have lived in Ireland for the last sixteen years and I love the peace and quiet that we have here, it’s a wonderful place to raise children.
I do NOT own wellies (gumboots) as the city girl that is still trapped in me, won’t allow it… SO… I wear riding boots instead. I may actually be the unofficial Imelda Marcos of Ireland with the amount of shoes I own (insert Shoegasm here).
I began writing professionally in January 2013 and now I’m releasing my fourth book.
I write fun, naughty, not so hearts and flowers stories. My all time favorite writing hero is Clive Cussler. I love action and suspense, which probably influences my own writing greatly, hence i’m NOT a hearts and flowers kind of girl.
I love humour and try to use it as often as I can in any situation… I think life is too short to NOT try anything new. I’m a fun, loyal person and believe in Karma, so I try to treat people how I would like to be treated… after all, it takes much more to be nasty to someone rather than just to be nice…

An avid reader, I’ll wade through pretty much anything but hot favourites right now are romance, horror (not gory though, more supernatural) and contemporary. Am discovering some wonderful books through Goodreads and writing circles on Facebook – haven’t had to pop into Waterstones for ages! I’m also the author of The Runaway Year, published by Omnific Publishing – a contemporary Cornish romance with a healthy dash of sass. Later this year my second novel will be available – a paranormal mystery this time. Psychic Surveys Book 1: The Haunting of Highdown Hall will be published by Crooked Cat Publishing and is the first in a series which will only get darker.

L. ChapmanL. Chapman was born in and continues to live in North Yorkshire, United Kingdom. She has spent most of her life helping others as a health care assistant, and was, at one time, a DJ for a special needs club. Blending her love of helping others and her love of children, L dreams to one day own and operate a childcare nursery that will help mainstream special needs children with others.
In the rare times that L. is not working to help others or maniacally writing, she enjoys making a mess of things while creating beautifully detailed greeting cards. She spends time relaxing with family, friends, and good books. L. loves to travel and has been to many places in the United Kingdom; her favorite places all involve the ocean. She hopes to one day share a kiss with her happily-ever-after in the romantic shadow of the Eiffel Tower. Should she ever get over her fear of flying, those kisses may be shared in the shadows of the Egyptian Pyramids.
Ever the fussy eater, L. has never once tasted peanut butter, and she despises coffee. If you should feel the need to bribe her, it is suggested that you bring chocolate, as that is one of her know weaknesses.

I am a newbie to this writing business. It all started from an idea for an opening paragraph that I had one morning. From there the story grew and grew and eventually became ‘Silver Lining’.
I live in London with my partner, son and two cats. By day I work in a college supporting students, at night I’ve either got my head stuck in a book on my tablet, or I’m writing.
This is a monster roller coaster ride I’m on, and being a bit of an adrenalin junkie, I’m loving it!

I am a mother to two young children, who in turn keep me young. I live in Dublin, Ireland but, I’m originally from South Devon in the UK. I work full time in a pharmacy and write in all my spare time: in my lunch hour, when watching TV at night and anywhere the urge takes me.
I have always been interested in reading from a young age and then 2 years ago I was given a kindle as a present and it was the best thing that happened to me.
I have worked with a number of indie authors and have remained loyal to a few select authors and I beta read all their books.
After a year or more of doing this, I thought maybe I could write some of the stories that were in my head and I just decided to write and see what happened. I wrote about 70% of a story and then saw a post for the NaNoWriMo competition – to write 50,000 words in 30 days, I decided that this was a challenge I wanted to take and the Til Death Us Do Part series was born.
I am always thinking of situations that can be turned into a story and have started a few stories, which in turn will be completed and released to my readers.
I love to hear what my readers have to say about my work and please find my links below:
Thank you for your support and I hope you enjoy this series of books as much as I enjoyed writing them.

For those of you looking for something a little more arousing, Charming Man offers a written insight into the realms of sensual romance.
Exploring the thought provoking world of encounters between strangers, sexual fantasies, illicit relationships and voyeurism, Charming Man attempts to reach the inner desire for erotic excitement that he believes is within us all.
Although all works ultimately leave nothing to the imagination, each treads a slow and tortuous path, building slowly to prolong the feeling of anticipation.
So why not take a look at the Charming Man website and peruse the stories at your ‘pleasure’. You’ll find no explicit content on the site’s pages; each story extract sets a scene and will hopefully leave you wanting more!

Sarah lives in East Yorkshire with her husband and daughter. When she’s not writing or chasing after her daughter, she’s watching US crime dramas, action movies or with her head in a good book (or her nose in a glass of good wine).
Sarah studied English Literature and worked for a national media group before finding this delightful outlet of ideas, character development and plain, outright ‘brain splash’.

I live in London with my husband, I have grown up children. I took up writing as a form of escapism from my very serious day job.
I’ve worked in the health service and social services settings for most of my adult life and I am independent professional still currently working for the above.
I have a few loves in life, music, skiing, and reading, and my family of course. Writing began during a difficult time in my life last year as a form of ‘self therapy’ to help combat some of the challenges I meet in the reality of my day to day working life.
Ruined by romantic mini-series of the seventies and eighties, I love all things romantic. There’s not enough of it in real life so I’ll settle for books and films.
I love the rain, the West Wing, London, days when you don’t have to wear make-up, being alone, being with friends, elephants and champagne.

Hi, I’m Beth Maria.
I have a two year old son and we live in the not so sunny country England.
I love reading, so when I read over 300 books, I decided to give writing a go myself. I had an amazing journey writing ‘Alive’ and can’t wait for you all to read it.
When I’m not looking after my son, you can find me in bed, reading, writing or watching a good film, whether it be action, romance or comedy. I like anything 🙂

I am a hopeless, incurable romantic. When I’m not reading it, I’m writing it. I love lively, believable characters that you can identify with. I hate getting to the end of a good book and will regularly mourn a good book when when I’ve finished it.
My own writing is contemporary adult/erotica.
My fave romance quote comes from Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City “I am someone who is looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love.” – Amen to that sister.
My fave sex quote comes from Oscar Wilde “Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power.” – Ain’t that the truth!
Erotic romance writer, wine drinker, disorganised wife and mom.
