The new frontier. This is the voyage of Nicole Austin. Its been a lifelong mission. To explore awe-inspiring vistas. To get out of the rut, seek new experiences. To boldly go where shes dreamed of being. And shes not taking this crazy journey alone. With some arm twisting, kicking and screaming, she stuffed her best friend and co-author in the trunk of her muscle car, traded tropical beaches for snowcapped mountains and headed off into the great unknown. A passion for erotic romance, along with the voices in her head that refuse to be silenced, have led to the creation of provocative stories that push boundaries and release inhibitions, resulting in extreme reader satisfaction. Scandalous! Now she lives in an incredible world where fantasy comes to life in bold, vivid detail. Well, until real life intrudes, but Nicole fights a valiant battle to keep reality moments at a minimum and hold onto the dream.
It came as no surprise to anyone when Allie decided she wanted to write humorous adventure-filled romance stories. After all her life has been one of constant adventure. From surviving the wilds of oft-flooding South East Texas where she lives to growing up in Saudi Arabia where her brother tried to sell her to Bedouins (for what amounts to less than $1.50), it's been non stop. And she loves every minute of it.
Inspired by her friends and family, Allie knew her books could never be about hum drum everyday life. Her stories have always had a decidedly paranormal twist to them. They're filled with past lives, chain e-mail sending oracles, magic, sexy gods, and heroines who know exactly what they want and aren't afraid to get it.
Most of her free time is spent spoiling nieces and nephews, pumping them up on sugar and caffeine then sending them back to their parents. Revenge for all the slights of being the youngest child :-).
Allie has a close group of friends she refers to fondly as the evil elf, wicked witch and the weird wood nymph, without them and more writer friends, she wouldn't have made it past her first very bad novel.
When not writing the stories of all the people in her head, Allie can be found fighting off her demonic cat, chasing a dog with a penchant for purple underwear, avoiding the kitchen and grocery stores at all costs, and trying not to think about her next deadline.
