Extended Bio (234 words)

Elia Winters has always been a New England girl. Although she spent much of her childhood in Florida, she returned to her home state of Massachusetts as a teenager and has remained in New England ever since. She was blessed with an artsy, creative, quirky family that nurtured her eccentricities and helped shape her into the woman she is today.

Elia holds a Master’s degree in English Literature and teaches at a small rural high school, where she also runs the drama club. She balances her love of words with a love of baking, crafting, and a bottomless well of geekiness; in her spare time, she is equally likely to be found playing tabletop games, kneading bread, cross-stitching, or binge-watching Marie Kondo.

A writer all her life, Elia likes to dabble in many genres, but erotic romance has been one of her favorites since she first began sneaking her mother’s romance novels. In Catholic high school, she kept her friends entertained with a steady stream of explicit stories and somehow never got caught passing them around. Now, sex education and kink-positive feminism have become a cornerstone of Elia’s brand, including reviewing sex toys and presenting at kink conventions. She is a fat, tattooed, polyamorous bisexual who loves petting cats and fighting the patriarchy.

Elia writes geeky, kinky, cozy erotic romance. She currently lives in western Massachusetts with her loving husband and their weird pets.
