Emma Allan is the pseudonym of an established author of erotic fiction and would describe her own life as 'colourful.' After a degree at the University of Sussex and a brief period as a film actress and a model, Emma Allan married and lived in Paris, New York and Istanbul. When she returned to London she began to write novels often based on her own experiences and the wide variety of characters she met. She has written over forty novels. She now lives in a small English country village and regularly encounters a new cast of characters whose lives, behind closed doors, provide marvellous material for her fiction.
