Louise Ligon and Hunter Maine met while vacationing in Ireland. Sharing a love of writing, they instantly connected. Louise's background in history and passion for strong female characters coupled with Hunter's intuitive skill for vivid storytelling make them a dynamic team.
Hunter's appetite for writing began at an early age in his high school writing class. During an in class writing exercise, Hunter chose to work on a sensual romance. Although his teacher was impressed with his style, warned him about its inappropriate nature in school, making it all the more desirable to write. Always a voracious reader, some of his favorite authors include Alexandre Dumas, Fyodor Dostoevsky and contemporary writers such as Pat Conroy and Anne Rice. His personal motto in regard to his work is "Do it with passion or do not do it at all."
Louise is an award winning writer of film, television, and erotic romance novels currently living in Los Angeles. Ravenous when it comes to history, she loves traveling soaking in European royal genealogy and women's studies in a wide diversity of cultures. She attributes much of her passion for writing to her grandmother a fellow author. However, her writing heroes range from Shakespeare to George RR Martin and Diana Gabaldon. She lives by the adage "Be yourself; everyone else is already taken."
Their first book collaboration, Blue Paramour (release date, June 2015) is a historic erotic romance with gay and racial themes. Blue Paramour is the first book in the Blue Ridge Saga and is the origin story of Brayden Steed, a new breed of the alpha male character. The Blue Ridge Saga culminates in a thrilling trilogy of love and war.
Both authors currently live in Los Angeles with their three beautiful rescue dogs.
When not writing, Hunter enjoys weekend trips to Napa and Las Vegas. He is a lover of whiskey and cigars.
Louise loves traveling which is the perfect opportunity for her to indulge in two of her other passions, photography and wine collecting.
They are both passionate advocates for animal rescue charities and the Gay Men's Health Crisis.
