Amaryllis Lanza took the road less traveled early on and has enjoyed many adventures in far flung places.
She's settled for a while in the green and rolling countryside of Northern Europe where she shares her life with her lovely husband and her frolicking cats.
When she's not writing (and reading) racy romance, suspense, and urban fantasy she works as a freelance journalist.
Her hobbies are cooking, baking and solving puzzles.
What makes the perfect Daddy Dom in a novel? It is a question I work tirelessly on to answer in the romance novels I write as Arabella Kingsley and Cordelia Gregory. My Daddy Dom characters are a modern twist and combination of handsome elegantly dressed classic 1940s film stars such as Cary Grant in Notorious,… Read More
I live in the UK, in the leafy county of Hertfordshire, just outside London with my husband, daughter and dog called Domino. I started my career as a Legal Executive and then decided to change direction and attend University to study History. It was during this time that I gave birth to my thirteen-year-old daughter. I then returned to University to complete a postgraduate degree in History. My passion is writing novels, in particular historical & action romance, gothic romance, fantasy, romantic thrillers and erotica. When I am not writing I love walking in the nearby woods connecting with nature. I am also a Spiritualist Medium and have many stories to tell about my encounters with spirits and past lives which I often translate into my writing.
Dominant doesn’t equal psychopath, and while I’m at it, submissive doesn’t equal victim. I have recently seen several kinky erotic romance novels where the ‘dominant’ is actually a psychopath. Maybe I get hung up in terminology because of my degree in psychology, but I feel the urge to make this distinction, and to call things… Read More
In my younger years I never would have considered myself a writer. Honestly, I became a writer because I simply couldn’t find the kinds of spanking stories that I wanted to read — or at least not enough of them to satisfy my voracious appetite for reading. The more I wrote, the more I enjoyed writing, and eventually it became a part of my daily existence. Now I’d say that being a writer is one of my defining characteristics.
I’m married with two kids, one dog, three cats, a part time job, and a mortgage. I’ve lived in the beautiful Pacific Northwest my entire life, but most days I’d rather be on the computer, writing, than outside enjoying the scenery.
by Chris Jayne All fiction writers ask themselves this question a thousand times in every book. In fact, the conflict for any book should be able to be summarized in a “what if” question. The genre is irrelevant. From John Grisham’s “The Firm” (What if a new associate at a law firm discovered that the… Read More
Could it happen? Would you survive?
Chris Jayne is author of the apocalyptic EMP series Stronghold.
Jayne is also the penname of a USA Today bestselling romance and thriller author who is has started asking "what if?" What if the lights go off? What if the food supply chain just... stops? The world could become an unfriendly place in a hurry.
Three years ago, Chris began exploring the 'prepper' lifestyle, and hopes that if TEOTWAWKI would actually happen, she would be in a position to protect her family and loved ones.
She now spends her days splitting her time between her romance writing and her apocalyptic and dystopian fiction novels. Because what's more fun than imagining the end of the world from the comfort of your couch? And if the end of the world has a few sexy Navy Seals in it? All the better!
She loves writing stories exploring how ordinary people cope with extraordinary circumstances, especially situations where the normal comforts, conveniences, and rules are stripped away.

America Needs Westerns
My third western, A Score to Settle, was recently released by The Wild Rose Press. It’s set in 1870 New Mexico Territory and unfolds on the notorious Goodnight-Loving cattle trail. My first two western mysteries, The Reckoning, and The Renewal, are set about the same timeframe in Colorado. Are westerns coming back? Seems like it…. Read More
