Avril always wanted to have a sexy bio, one to reflect who Avril is, but after drawing a blank, Avril thought up this gem: I eat cake and I read books…ooh, and I write‘em too. No one liked it and after massive peer-pressure, Avril managed something much more extensive.
A Caribbean transplant, Avril now lives in Brooklyn, N.Y with a Spousal Equivalent of eight years. Together they raise a 7 y/o daughter who loves reading and school (wonder how long that will last). Avril’s earliest memories of reading revolve around discussing plot points of The Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys with an equally book-minded mother
Always in love with the written word, Avril finally decided to do the writing in August of ’09 and never looked back. Spicy love scenes, delicious heroes, and wicked women burn up the pages of Avril’s stories, but there’ll always be a happy ending; Avril remains a believer of love in all its forms.

Robin Badillo is the mother of four terrific kids, two boys, two girls, and two rescued pups named Maxie and Chino, who have their own Facebook page. Go figure!
She lives in a small East Texas town, near Houston and loves the small town life.
Robin has dreams to see the world, but would be satisfied just to explore more of the US.
She loves to watch old romantic movies and musicals with her daughters and then switch it up and watch nitty-gritty action movies and westerns with her sons. Any time with them, laughing and just having fun, is her idea of paradise.
Robin has always loved reading, but never really had the time to sit down and do a lot of it. In fact, she’s probably reads more now than ever before.
She generally writes full length paranormal vampire romance, but has tried her hand with a new genre or two. She’s enjoying stepping out of her comfort zone and pushing the envelope on the stories she writes and hopes that readers are just as thrilled as she is with the chances she takes. After all, without them, there is no reason to write.
As a final note, Robin is a firm believer that it’s true what they say… Grey Hair is God’s Graffiti!
