About meAnnie Rayburn is no stranger to the oddities of the writing life. Perhaps it was the hot Texas sun, or the long, lazy days of summer that fueled her vivid imagination. Whatever the muse, she grew up with scenes playing in her head and imaginary playmates taking over the show while she patted out mud cookies dotted with Chinaberries.

The stories she crafts today are decidedly more adult than the ones that involved Ken and Barbie. The scenes still play in her head, the characters argue with her right to craft their very existence, but she’s learned to harness their energies, showing them the way through the sensual haze to a love that will endure.

These days, Annie writes for Red Sage Publishing. Her first release with them is Bittersweet Obsessions, an erotic romance with sci-fi and paranormal elements.

Annie Rayburn is the pseudonym of Carol Burnside, an award-winning author traditionally published in short stories. Five of her novel length, contemporary romance manuscripts have placed in numerous RWA chapter contests and won five, including the prestigious Maggie Award for Excellence.

While Carol/Annie enjoys the adoration she receives from her furbabies, what she really loves is hearing from her readers.

About my libraryThis by no means contains all the books I've read. While growing up, I was a voracious reader, speeding through the Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, Boxcar Children, Little House series and some of the Trixie Beldens. In add'n, I read everything required through school, and many that weren't. My appetite for reading was re-fueled when I discovered Harlequin romances and historicals around the 6th grade. From there, I added cozies, romantic suspense, thrillers, paranormal and westerns. There's a whole world to be discovered through reading.
