About the Author
Sharazade is a professional educator and writer with more than 15 books published under another name. She divides her time between Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and the U.S. She enjoys stories that are realistic enough that they might have happened and fanciful enough that they might not have. She values communication, adventure, exploration, passion, and love.

Even had I not known of Sharazade's background, it would have been apparent to me that this woman knows her way around the maze of the English language. I fear I m about to admit to being a nerd, or geek, or whatever term is currently fashionable for the unfashionable. To me, sublime navigation and fluent control of language is so, soooooo sexy. And Sharazade has it in spades.
Within the first pages of this anthology it also becomes clear that Sharazade has travelled. Really travelled. Cold airports take on the qualities of landscapes. Details, some large, some almost infinitesimal, permeate every page of every story, giving this entire collection a sharp and sculpted feel.
Shar's word choices are consistently pleasing, too, as much for their appropriateness as for their novelty. In context it could seem as if those two terms are contradictory, but I feel they fit the writing perfectly. While avoiding clichÃ©s, the occasional atypical word choices employed sit so comfortably in their places that they enliven the entire anthology. From the first story in the collection, Schiphol :
"And finally, finally you enter me. Slowly, so I can feel every blessed inch fill me."
The use of blessed is a perfect example. A dual meaning, because of the context of the story. This couple regularly endures long periods of separation. Their togetherness is by necessity cramped, by both time and space. And at that moment, all the control is with him.Read more ›
The stories also strike a balance between being explicit enough without going too far. Certain details are left for the reader to fill in, which can help you make the story your own. For example, in the first story a couple meet at an airport. While it appears to others that they don't know each other, we know they do, but exactly how they know each other and what their relationship is, is left fuzzy. The stories are told from the woman's point of view sometimes, other times from the man's, and in at least one case the POV switches mid-story. Each of these points of view are done equally well. If you're a reader of erotica, especially if you're also a traveler, you should enjoy "Transported." I did.
