Zane is the pseudonym of Kristina Laferne Roberts, author of erotic fiction novels.[1] She is best known for her novel Addicted. In 1997, Zane began writing erotic stories to pass the time after her children went to bed. She was living in North Carolina and working as a sales representative. The stories developed a following on the Internet and she self-published The Sex Chronicles before landing a deal with Simon & Schuster.[2]

Her work was the basis for the Cinemax program Zane's Sex Chronicles.[3] Her latest project, Zane's The Jump Off, premiered March 29, 2013, on Cinemax.

Zane is the publisher of Strebor Books/Atria Books/Simon and Schuster where she publishes 36–60 books a year by other authors.

The first feature film based on one of her works, Addicted, was released by Lionsgate on October 10, 2014.

In 2014, she was cited by Comptroller of Maryland Peter Franchot as one of Maryland's top tax cheats, owing the state $340,833.58.[1]

On June 11, 2014, Zane filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Maryland, claiming total liabilities of more than $3.4 million.[4]
