Laila Blake is a linguist, currently working as a translator and English teacher in her home-town of Cologne/Germany, where she shares her apartment with a spirited kitten called Nookie and obsesses about obscure singer-songwriters. She has yet to find a genre to settle down with and for the moment, flirts with a great number of them. At this time, she is most dedicated to romance and erotica. Her first novel BY THE LIGHT OF THE MOON (www.lakeside-series.com) was released in April 2013 and she is avidly working on wrapping up its sequel. Find her at www.lailablake.com.
