BDSM Writers Con




After her first husband died, Cris Anson poured all her grief and angst into a journal. One day, to help her cope with the unthinkable, she decided to harness those volatile emotions to create scenarios where a heroine, against all obstacles, finds a happy ending. Joining the Romance Writers of America set her on her path to serious writing, a goal which her second husband wholeheartedly supported. She found her niche in erotic romance and in 2005 Ellora’s Cave published her first book, Dance of the Seven Veils. To date fifteen of her novels and novellas have been published. Her shorter stories appear in various romance Anthologies.

In 2012 Cris attended the first BDSM Writers Workshop Weekend in New York City. To her surprise, she discovered her writing had a BDSM flavor without her having known about the lifestyle. Now she enjoys lots of hands-on research and her stories shimmer with authenticity. She is active in the BDSM community as the assistant director of her local Power Exchange educational organization.

When not reading, writing, or researching, Cris enjoys gardening, walking, playing the piano, Scrabble, crossword puzzles, oddball jokes, and dark chocolate. After a lifetime in the business world, she stops and smells the flowers at every opportunity.
