Take one part Appalachian redneck, one part wet dream, and one part filthy-minded wordsmith. Mix well and serve with chocolate-covered cherries. There you have the one and only Alessia Brio.
Alessia writes all colors and flavors of erotica, from heterosexual to ménage to same sex, and from twisted to humorous to deeply touching. (Sometimes, usually by accident, it even qualifies as romance.)
Her work has earned her critical acclaim in the form of a 2007 EPPIE for Best Erotica (fine flickering hungers), a Romantic Times Top Pick (Coming Together: For the Cure), and two Next Generation Indie Book Awards for Best Erotica (Coming Together: For the Cure in 2008 and Squeeze Play in 2009 with partner, Will Belegon) in addition to a plethora of glowing online reviews.
The Internet is both her office and her playground. She can be found online at:

Will Belegon is in his element as an author of erotic romance. It combines his love of moonlit beaches and first kisses with his passion for steamy sex and wraps them all up in a collection of words that conjure the most delicious imagery. (The attentions of the predominantly female readership has absolutely nothing to do with his desire to write for the genre. *wink*)
In addition to erotic romance, Will writes both poetry and erotica, edits for Phaze Books, and rants about politics on his blog.
A San Diegan at heart, Will now calls the Appalachian Mountains his home. He is a devoted father and martial arts enthusiast with entirely too many swords for his own good.
