Welcome Author, Editor, Sensuality Coach and founder of Stiletto U, Lori Bryant-Woolridge, to the Eden Community Interview!

A life-long sensualist, Lori Bryant-Woolridge is an Emmy Award winning author who’s been on the best seller list, a teacher, a mother, and the founder of Stiletto U, a virtual university dedicated to teaching women the power and pleasure of sensuous living. Sexuality informs a lot of Lori’s work, and has gained her quite a following of avid readers and students.

Lori grew up amidst family and friends of every hue, race, religion, and economic background, and was raised to value a person's essence, not their exterior superficialities. She is Chinese-American, African-American and Caucasian, though today she most closely identifies with the African-American community, her lifelong exposure to the wonders of multiculturalism has definitely colored the way she views this world, both as a person and a writer. Early on, Lori was disappointed in the absence of any social consciousness among the exotic locations, desperate love affairs, and decadent show of wealth in the books she read. Writing without concern for the current niche markets that exist in the book business has been a challenge thus far, but it's a challenge Lori gladly accepts. Lori continually strives to foster a new fictional niche where a good story is a good story, regardless of the race of the characters, the author or the reader. The simple truth is that Lori writes the kind of books that she loves to read - cleverly constructed page-turners that are emotional, fun, romantic and sexy.

"My life’s goal is to empower women by helping them find their feminine confidence,” Lori explains. "So many women, no matter their age, race, religion or sexual preference are so confused by the disconnect between wanting to be a sexual being and feeling inadequate and/or guilty about living those desires.” Not so for the characters in her latest book, the erotic anthology, Can’t Help The Way That I Feel – you may have seen it listed as one of SexIs Magazine’s Naked Reader Book Club’s selections for July! These sexy stories are driven by characters who approach sex in ways that are experimental, curious, adventurous, spontaneous, empowering and joyful. They have sex the way we'd all like to!

Do you have questions for Lori? Maybe you’re wondering what her journey into writing was like, or perhaps you want to know how she can help you to get your groove back, or maybe you have questions about her experiences as a teacher... go ahead, ask! This is your time to interview Lori!

Ask as many questions as you’d like; you can even post about and link to the interview from your blog if you want to. Feel free to share your thoughts!

And there are prizes!

Lori will be giving away awesome prizes for her favorite 3 questions! We’ll be announcing the winners in this thread next week on Friday, July 23rd.

The prizes are...

1st Prize: A copy of Lori’s new book Can’t Help The Way That I Feel and a $50 Eden gift card!

3rd Prize: A copy of Lori’s new book Can’t Help The Way That I Feel!
