About Starla

I write/publish romance novellas and novels of several sub-genres as Starla Kaye for Blushing Books, Black Velvet Seductions, and Red Rose Publishing. I also publish romantic suspense as S. K. Fero mainly for Blushing Books. As a break away from my more serious writing efforts, I write romantic snippet stories about Blossom (a cow) and her bullfriend (Ferdinand). http://blossomandfriends.com.
