Author's Corner: Savanna Malveaux
Savanna Malveaux, born in Atlanta is a true southern Georgia peach. Her love for reading and writing was sparked in early childhood. While life got in the way, as it usually does, Savanna focused more on reading than writing. Her first novel idea was born out of necessity during a solo vacation after finishing all the books she brought along (long before e-readers were wildly popular). While this is her first foray into professional writing, she has written blogs, poems, and short stories throughout her life. Savanna hopes her vivid characters and intricate plots are relatable, inspiring, or both. Savanna Malveaux desires to live in a world where women's sensual empowerment is not frowned on by society; but, where it is celebrated! When she is not writing or working her 9-to-5, she continues to travel the globe enriched through her interactions with diverse cultures and people. ‪Our Time is erotica, focused on women's sexual freedom/empowerment. While dealing with her own baggage, Leah the main character, helps her clients fulfill their most intimate fantasies. Almost every chapter is a different fantasy. Spicy read, with a great story line.
