Laura Roberts writes about sex, travel, and ninjas – though not necessarily in that order. As the author of the “V for Vixen” sex column, Laura began her career chronicling Montrealers’ sexcapades, which are collected together in her book, The Vixen Files. Blending real-life observations with fictional fantasies, she’s also penned The Montreal Guide to Sex, 69 Sexy Haiku, Ninjas of the 512, and parts 1 and 2 of her serial novel, Naked Montreal. She’s currently working on part 3 of the series, along with her latest novel – a sexy murder-mystery entitled The Case of the Cunning Linguist. In addition to her writing career, Laura also edits the online literary magazine Black Heart while leg-pressing Sumo wrestlers and drinking coffee. She lives in an Apocalypse-proof bunker in sunny SoCal with her artist husband and their literary kitties, and can be found online at Buttontapper.com.
