New York Times and USA Today bestselling and award winning author Eden Bradley (aka Eve Berlin) writes dark, edgy character-driven erotic fiction. Her work has been called "elegant, intelligent and sensual". Her debut novel, THE DARK GARDEN, has been praised as "a masterpiece", and was a Romantic Times Top Pick, as was her erotic novel FORBIDDEN FRUIT. Her novel THE LOVERS was called "the thinking woman's erotica".

...as delectable as a juicy ripe peach...

Eden sold four novels and a novella to Bantam, as well as a novella to Berkley, before her first novel even hit the shelves, and Bantam contracted two more novels from her the moment her debut book was released. Her novels and novellas written as Eden and Eve have collectively been translated into German, Romanian, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Czech, Polish, Indonesian and Japanese.

Eden has appeared regularly on Sirius Satellite's Playboy Radio show, Night Calls, and has participated in numerous round-table podcasts and radio discussions. She has also been a regular guest at the West Coast In the Flesh readings in Hollywood. Eden has presented a number of workshops, online courses, and served on panels on writing craft and writing sex at several chapters of Romance Writers of America, at the RWA Nationals Conference, the Romantic Times Convention and at libraries and independent writer's groups. As someone who has been involved in BDSM practice for much of her adult life, she realtes in particular to her BDSM stories, infusing them with her own truth about kink practice from her life experiences. Eden speaks regularly on BDSM psychology, safety and practice, and offers educational courses on sex positive culture for women.

Eden has published a number of articles on writing, and has published with Berkley, Bantam/Delta, Harlequin Spice and HQN, and Samhain Publishing, as well as venturing into indie publishing. She has also written erotic romance for Berkley Heat as Eve Berlin. Her debut Berkely novel, PLEASURES EDGE, won the 2010 Holt Medallion Award for best Erotic Romance, and her self-published Box Set, RIDING DESIRE, hit the New York Times and USA Today Best Seller lists in February, 2014 with her story OBSESSION.
