Meet the Naughties
I wrote my first serialized story when I was still in my teens. The sexy, adventure tales were very popular at my oh-so-proper, all girls, Catholic High School, where they helped to liven up otherwise dull classes.
A lot of years have passed since then, but I’m still at it, penning novels and novellas in the romantic suspense, psychic fiction and erotic romance genres.
Originally a Jersey Girl, I currently reside on the Extreme Left Coast with my husband and soulmate, our two young adult kids and a random assortment of animal companions.

I've been reading romance since my mom first let me into her book cupboard when I was about fourteen. LaVyrle Spencer, Julie Garwood, Debbie Macomber... they took my 'happily ever after' ideas from animated princesses to real people in the real world.
I've been writing romance almost as long. Many a family car trip was spent with my head bent over a spiral notebook in the back seat. I'll confess that my very first attempts at fiction were fantasy and paranormals, influenced by my father's love of the Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and the original Alice in Wonderland. If Harry Potter had been around, I'm sure he would have been on the bedtime story shelf as well.
But it wasn't long until I started writing about true love and that's where I've been ever since.
I'm so thrilled to be able to share these stories with you! I hope that they make you smile, sigh, maybe even choke up a little. Most of all, I hope that they help you believe in magical things like first kisses, the spark of passion, and the power of true love.
Skylar Kade, self-avowed hedonist and princess extraordinaire, started her writing career after throwing aside yet another romance she could not bring herself to finish. The run-on sentences! The purple prose! Oh, the horror of it was just too much. So she sat down to write her own tale. Her favorite part about writing is the extensive research.
She currently resides in sunny southern California, alternately cursing the polluted air and adoring the often-perfect weather. Skylar spends her time asking the cabana boys to bring her more mimosas and feed her strawberries while she dreams up her next naughty adventure.
You can find her erotic romances at Samhain and Ellora's Cave, in print and e-book.
As she is permanently attached to the Internet (they are looking into surgical procedures to fix her crackberryitis), she would love to hear from you! Catch Skylar on the Nine Naughty Novelists blog, send an email to email@example.com, or visit her on facebook or twitter (@skylarkade).
A born and raised Maritimer, Sydney Somers fell in love with writing at the age of eight. Since finishing her first book in 2002, Sydney has written over twenty-five romances—one of which will forever remain hidden under her bed.
When she’s not tracking down remote controls, chasing after her three very energetic children or exterminating rogue dust bunnies, Sydney can be found curled up with a good book or working on her next project. She loves to hear from readers and invites them to e-mail her anytime.
