Anel Viz is a regular contributor to Wilde Oats. A native New Yorker transplanted with only mild success to the Midwest and who has spent much of life in French-speaking countries, he returned to his childhood passion of writing fiction and poetry a few years ago. He now looks forward to devoting himself to it full time, having recently retired from college teaching. He writes in a variety of genres and enjoys pushing the envelope, both in his literary experiments and his treatment of sex. In addition to his Wilde Oats stories, his publications include 5 novels, 3 novellas, 5 short stories, 3 prose poem cycles, and 3 short story anthologies, Kaleidoscope and the 2-volume Horror, Dark & Lite.
