Meet the Real Me

by Pepper on January 7, 2016

Head Shot 96 dpiHey, everyone. As 2016 begins, I’ve been taking serious stock of my personal time and energy, as well as my writing career goals. What I’ve never mentioned here is that I’ve spent the last half of 2015 undergoing stage 4 cancer treatment, which does cause one to reevaluate things. It has become clear to me that supporting two writing identities is simply not in my best interest. It’s just too much to do, especially when it comes to keeping up two social media presences. So, although I have loved being Pepper for the past five years, I’ve come to the decision to write only under my real name, Nola Cross.

Being Pepper allowed me to explore some story lines quite different from what I write as Nola. (What can I say? Pepper is just plain naughtier than Nola.) I’m feeling okay about moving away from erotic stories now and focusing on longer romance stories that are more emotion-centered. You will still find plenty of sensual love making, but the bedroom will not be the main stage any longer.

I want to sincerely thank all of you readers who enjoyed my Pepper Anthony stories. I hope you’ll take a peek at Nola’s books as I continue to build my career under that name.  Here’s a link to my website to get you started.
