MATTHEW MUNSON “Thursday’s Life”
Matthew is a civil servant, often seen vaguely shuffling bits of paper around from one bit of his desk to the next before mumbling something about “character development” and sloping off to write – which is his first love. He’s been published in a flash fiction anthology, some medical journals and two fiction magazines. As long as people keep foolishly accepting his work, he will continue writing – you have been warned.

ebfaceEDEN BAYLEE “A Man of Wealth and Taste”

Eden writes erotica, provocative stories incorporating all her favorite things: travel; culture; and sex. Sometimes there’s romance, sometimes not. Sometimes there’s a happy ending, sometimes not. What is consistent are the multi-dimensional characters who grow and change as the stories progress. Sex is the backdrop, but a very important element in their evolution.  She left a long and distinguished career in banking to become a full-time writer.  Her first book, Fall into Winter, a book of four erotic novellas, is currently available via AMAZON, Barnes & Noble, and other sites located on her website.
