Kristina Wright Heats Up Your Valentine's Day with Duty and Desire: Military Erotic Romance Start: 02/14/2013 12:30 pm End: 02/14/2013 2:30 pm Timezone: America/New York Kristina is the editor of many, many anthologies of erotica. With her latest effort, she brings us sexy soldiers and sailors! Pick up a copy for a gift or for yourself. Authors: Kristina is also a great person to grill about publishers that still take unagented submissions and what the etiquette is to be successful in that arena. Kristina Wright had no idea what to expect from military life when she married an enlisted Navy sailor after a whirlwind long distance courtship just three months before the first Gulf War. She can say it may not be for everyone, but it's a hell of a ride! In the over two decades since they said "I do," her husband James has worked his way up the ranks to Lieutenant Commander and she has become an award-winning author whose erotic fiction has appeared in over 90 anthologies. They have lived in three states, endured seven deployments (two while her husband was assigned to Navy Special Warfare) and countless months of underway training exercises and counter narcotics operations, made the happy transition from "snail" mail to e-mail and had two children. Their first son was born in 2009 while James was on an eight month deployment to the Middle East, but he was lucky enough to be stateside when their second son was born in 2011. Inspired by her South Florida roots and tales of drug running and espionage, Kristina received the Golden Heart Award for Romantic Suspense from the Romance Writers of America for her first novel. She is also the editor of six other Cleis Press anthologies, including the best selling Fairy Tale Lust and Best Erotic Romance. She currently lives with her husband and sons in Hampton Roads, VA, home to the legendary SEAL Team Six and the largest naval base in the world.
