About the author (2007)

Award winning British author Saskia Walker first dreamed of writing her own stories when she discovered a handful of romance novels stashed away in her school library. An avid reader, she lapped up the fun, the adventures, and the life-affirming emotion of these stories, but always felt dismay when the bedroom door closed the reader out. She vowed that if she ever had the chance to pursue her dream, all the passion would be right there on the page.

Saskia finally began writing seriously in the late 1990s. By that time she'd traveled the world, got herself a BA in Art History, a Masters in Literature and the Visual Arts, and she'd worked in all manner of diverse careers--but the stories in her head simply had to be written. Her first erotic short story was signed in '97 and since then she has had many novel and novella publications, and her work has appeared in over one hundred anthologies including Best Women's Erotica, The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica, and the Black lace Wicked Words series. Her erotica has also been featured in several international magazines including Cosmo, Penthouse, Bust, and Scarlet. Saskia writes across genres, but always with the passion right there on the page! Her novel, DOUBLE DARE, received the Passionate Plume award for the Best Contemporary Erotic Romance of 2006. RAMPANT and THE JEZEBEL were both nominated for RT Magazine Reviewers' Choice Awards.

Saskia lives in the north of England--close to the beautiful, windswept landscape of the Yorkshire moors--with her real life hero, Mark. Mark supports her work through all its ups and downs, and somehow manages to keep her sane and grounded when fiction threatens to take over.
