P.L. Ripley

P.L. Ripley (1968-2017) was a born storyteller weaving worlds since he could first express what he saw in his head. Fascinated with human sexuality, erotic fiction was a natural place for him to explore the connection between sexual excitement and our emotional responses to it. He lived near Bangor, Maine with his partner of twenty-four years. Writing was a very important part of Ripley's life, and he was as delighted to publish his works with us as we were to work with him.

Cover for Bring the Love Bring the Love
