Slighty sassy, mildly sarcastic, & always foul-mouthed.

Annicka is a twenty-something bundle of awesome that has lived her entire life in sunny, seasonless California. She’s not in the glamorous areas, either. She’s on the edge of the desert where no one wants to go. It doesn’t bother her, though. She spends her free time playing video games, Magic the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons.

Her mother is erotic romance author Lex Valentine and Annicka has inherited her mother’s love of books, writing, and coffee– although she avoids the erotic part of writing. Except for her own trashy stash of writing that will never see the light of day. Ever. When she’s not writing, she’s guzzling coffee with gusto to fuel writing. It’s a vicious cycle.

Fabian Gonzalez makes up the other half of her writing exploits. They’re best friends and enjoy delving into the depths of their fantasy world and coming up with new, unexpected ways to kill all their characters and ruin their lives. They are seeking representation for their first novel, THE UNBROKEN, an adult fantasy novel they’d love very much to turn into a series.


A serial holiday story is coming to Socially Dead November 20th! Keep an eye out for updates!

Silk & Swords takes place eight months after THE UNBEATEN, the second installment of Annicka & Fabian’s fantasy manuscripts, and shows Catori’s struggle to find balance between her identity as a warrior and her role as wife and lady. It gives account of the first year of her new marriage and the birth of her second child, set against the backdrop of harvest and the New Year holidays.
