CANOGA PARK, Calif. - Tina Tyler directs Black Moon Risin' 9, available in stores now from Mercenary Pictures.

The new volume of Mercenary's hot ethnic line introduces female performers Baby Cakes, Taylor Starr, Nina Devon, Coffee Brown and Sheena Rey.

"The ladies in 'Black Moon Risin' 9' are beautiful and they loved being in their scenes," Tyler said. "As a former performer, I know how important it is that a director work with the talent, particularly when they're new to the business."

Mercenary Pictures owner Lexington Steele praised Tyler's ability to put new talent at ease.

"Tina's done a tremendous job in making sure these girls feel safe and comfortable on set," he said. "These girls are new to the business, so making sure their experience isn't intimidating is important to ensure they can turn out a good scene."
