This is a great Christmas story with a twist - we get to see how a sex demon learns to deal with a 'heavenly' holiday. All to please his human lover who is, by the way, a demon hunter.

Taylor has been reading and writing for as long as she can remember. As a child and a teenager, she spent many weekends holed up in her room with her books. If she didn’t like something about a story, she’d often take it upon herself to write her own version. As an adult, she wrote a bit of fanfiction, but quickly discovered creating her own characters was more fun.

She’s lived in the Detroit metro
