Intrepid explorer of all that is dark, dangerous, and "dirty," The
Nymph has been writing stories since age 6, when her first "published"
work "The Firebird" was displayed in the public library in her town.
She has been cranking out stories, poems, and other art ever since,
not letting a chronic illness, doomed love affairs, or college get in
her way. (Or her father telling her that writing was "just a phase"!)
While her much of her fiction is published here (she likes the company!),
her self-published poems can be found at TheNymph.com.
She now lives in California with her wonderful wife, cranky cat, and
far too many books. She loves to get email and would really love feedback
about her stories and hearing from writers (and readers!) Email
Valeska Keller was born in Swabia, but after graduating from the university
moved to Berlin, to live with lesbians and liberals. Her first published
work appeared in Tough Girls, from Black Books.
Now she lives in Berlin with her dog, many artistic neighbors, walls
filled with books, and no partner. The latter does not upset her too
much, as it means more time for her writing work, day job, dog, books,
and artistic neigbhors. Email

Jennifer Maer is an advertising copywriter who finally turned
to porn writing because it offered a more realistic view of the
world. You may have seen her work in Wired, Industry Standard,
The Wall Street Journal, or Time Magazine, but it probably
didn't turn you on. Unless you have a fetish for high tech, enterprise-level
software ads. In which case, she's written some sexy shit.

Dorian Beth Wenzel
Dorian Beth Wenzel graduated from Nottingham High School in Syracuse,
New York, in 1979. From 1980 through 1989, Dorian was a Biblical
scholar and lay-minister, holding Bible fellowships in her home
and working as volunteer staff for assorted Bible classes that
were offered through the Pentecostal ministry. Then she had a
change of heart when she was twenty-eight, after ten years of
celibacy, because she disagreed with the ministry over their doctrine
on homosexuality being a form of idolatry, and decided to leave
the ministry as a lay-minister.
She moved back to her parent¹s home in Syracuse, New York, in
August of 1987, to finish her college education with an associate
degree in Photography from Onondaga Community College in 1989.
She has since worked as a baby photographer and custom wedding
printer, portrait photographer and assorted lab positions, then
finally as a freelance photographer and writer while living in
Colorado Springs, where she moved to in June of 1993, right after
Amendment 2 passed in the state of Colorado.
In 1997, after a traumatic life-changing year, she decided to
start writing lesbian fiction and completed "Adventures of a GWF,"
in June of 1999. She finished writing the sequel, "Return of Dobi,"
in July of 2000, and will complete the third book of this trilogy
with "Dark Side of Dobi" in June of 2003.
She currently holds a day job while she desperately waits for
her career as a freelance writer and photographer to take off.
She started an e-commerce business web site on the Internet and
someday hopes to become a filmmaker and turn "Adventures of a
GWF" into a screenplay.

her erotica in the anthology Tough Girls. She has a BA

Michelle Houston has been writing erotica since 1995 and has
been a presence online in the erotic community since 1998, including
being a member of the Erotica Readers and Writers Association
since early 2002.
She has had the pleasure of being published not only on this
site, but also on other sites, including Three Pillows, Abby's
Realm, Amoret (which has sadly been shut down), and Divine Pleasures
(another site which is dearly missed) and currently has her first
ebook out from Renaissance E Books, and is working on two others.
Freedom of sexuality and self-exploration are two things that
Michelle strongly believes in. Discovering at age fifteen that
she is bisexual, she has struggled to come to terms with her sexuality
and her life. Writing created a sort of balance for her, if only
in that she could escape for a little while into her own world.
Whenever in doubt, questioning everything she had come to believe,
she would sit down and write until everything made sense again.
This didn’t always work, but it did create a love of writing,
and a way to find the path to inner peace.
Michelle lives in the eastern US with her husband and five-year-old
daughter. You can read more about her, or see more of her writing
on her personal website, The
Erotic Pen. Feel free to email her any and all comments on
her writings at email@example.com.

J. Oraclese writes: I'm 44 years old
and live in the Midwest, US. I have a day job that I hope to leave
behind by the end of 2005 or early 2006. It seems I've been writing
in one genre or another since I could hold a thick crayon; I remember
filling page after page with scribbles instead of pictures most
of the time. (Some say that my handwriting hasn't improved over
the years, either.)
While I've written short fiction for audiences whose ages range
from toddlers to adult, it's only been during the last few years
that I've succumbed to the pull of writing other literature types.
