Sarah Matalas credits her love of books to her grandma.

Beginning when she was a little girl, every Saturday night after church they would go to dinner and shopping, where grandma would buy her a new book.  She's been hooked on reading ever since.  Although, Sarah's not sure dear old granny would approve of her choice in reading material these days...

Due in part to her love of holding a book in her hands, it took Sarah YEARS to finally break down and buy an e-reader, but she is so glad she did!  It was that single purchase that introduced her to Erotic Romance and thus, her passion for editing erotic stories.
