Lisabet Sarai has been writing ever since she learned to hold a pencil, and publishing er0tica and er0tic r0mance since the late nineties. Her credits include seven novels as well as dozens of shorter works. She has edited two critically acclaimed commercial anthologies, Sacred Exchange (with S.F. Mayfair) and Cream: The Best of the Er0tica Readers & Writers Association. Since 2009 she has served as editor for the Coming Together Presents imprint of single author charitable anthologies, and has produced five volumes in this series.


Conceived online in the Literotica.com® Author's Hangout, Coming Together is the result of many hours of collaboration between some very talented authors, poets, and illustrators who have (ahem) "come together" to produce a scintillating er0tic cocktail. In each volume of this series, the reader may partake of a variety of intoxicating spirits: r0mance, both hetero- and homosexual romps, humor, and more. Since its founding in 2005, Coming Together has won a variety of prestigious awards and has contributed over $11,000 to causes ranging from AIDS and breast cancer research to civil liberties.
