Her latest book, “X: The Erotic Treasury” is a collection of erotic writing featuring “40 of the best and most relished contemporary erotic short stories to date,” so sez Amazon, (where you can buy a copy at a 34% discount). Here’s a well-crafted video book trailer that will introduce you to her and provide some details on the creation of “X.”
