Meet the Lusty Literati Reading Series Readers!

I'm thrilled to announce the first round of readers for the Lusty Literati Reading Series. Check out their bios below!

Liz Belile
Liz Belile created the popular "Gynomite: Fearless, Feminist Porn" reading series while living in Los Angeles in 1994, which led to a CD anthology and documentary film. She ended up back home in Texas in 1997, where the series continued to gather accolades and led to her "Breaking the Cherry" porn writing and performance workshop for women, which she has taught since 1999. Belile edited the "Gynomite" anthology in 2000 and took a handful of feminist pornographers on the road for book tour around the country. She got married then had a baby in 2007, and has entered a new level of understanding of the erotic.

Buio Davinci
I'm a tech yuppie with pretentions of horniness, and have been a member in unsure standing of the Voluptuaries for about three years. I recently quite my cubefarm career of ten years, and will be earning
part of my income through erotic writing, photography, and theater. I'm polyamorous and currently involved with about 5 different lovers local and distant, and that's likely to be a focus of my work.

C. C. Major
I've been writing since I was 11, when puberty turned my world upside down and I discovered how fruitless pining was useless unless it gave birth to a work of art. A diary was my only audience for years until blogging became popular, and I was intrigued with stories about kink. I've written mainly fiction, inspired by my dreams or whatever emotion or question was pinging at my heart and head; I've done a couple of opinion pieces, a few poems, and erotica, into which I like to mix comedy.

Paige Roberts

Roberts has published a variety of sexy stories in the US and UK on the fringes of reality and beyond: fantasy, science fiction, superhero, vampire, and shape-shifter, with D/s, SM, GLBT, BDSM, and other alphabet soup elements.
