Xio Axelrod is an award-winning author of romantic fiction, contemporary Scottish romance and, what she likes to call, strange, twisted tales. Xio grew up in the music industry and began recording at a young age. When she isn't writing stories, she can be found in the studio, writing songs, or performing on international stages (under a different, no-so-secret name). She lives in Philadelphia with one full-time husband and one part-time cat. She also writes erotica under the name Xio Nin.
