EDITOR, AUTHOR SIENNA SAINT-CYR
Sienna Saint-Cyr once wrote vanilla, mainstream fiction. For years, she suppressed her deep need to write about sex, BDSM, and what true consent means, but putting that naughty boy in a dress, pulling that cute blonde’s hair, or being cuffed to a cross was so much more… satisfying. In fiction, of course.
Along with writing erotica and romance, Sienna speaks at conventions, workshops, and for private gatherings on such sex-positive topics as a healthy body image, using sexuality to promote healing, and navigating diverse or non-traditional relationships. She writes for sites several websites.

EDITOR, AUTHOR CM PETERS
CM Peters would like to be ageless but hasn’t found the fountain of youth just yet. She works in the communications field but her true passion is writing. She hails from Québec and has been back at writing regularly after a long break since college.
An eclectic writer, CM is equally at home penning short erotica, quality fanfiction, and elaborate sci-fi and fantasy novels. Whatever genre she is working in, CM always centers her stories around complex, relatable characters. At the moment, she’s hard at work on a new coming of age novel and a collaborative fantasy anthology.
