I’m a queer Brit living in the USA with my partner Jacob Louder. I’m hugely influenced by Anaïs Nin — in fact, I’ve had two pieces published in A Cafe in Space: The Anaïs Nin Literary Journal (ed. Paul Herron) and have one piece forthcoming. As well as writing about sexuality and activism, I co-run Go Deeper Press with Jacob Louder, where our authors include Natty Soltesz, Xan West, and Alison Tyler, to name but a few. Go Deeper Press has been mentioned in Rolling Stone and on In Bed with Susie Bright, I’m honored to say.

My own books include the bestselling Cream: An Erotic Romance, which made it to #2 in both BDSM and Erotica charts on Amazon, as well as Cathedral of Furs: Ardent Erotica Inspired by Anais Nin (Go Deeper Press), and Confessions of a Kinky Divorcee (Harper Collins). I’ve had fiction published at Cosmopolitan and elsewhere, and I’ve also edited numerous books, including Roadhouse Blues by Malin James,  Shameless Behavior: Brazen Stories of Overcoming Shame and Dirty Little Numbers.

In terms of non-fiction, I’ve penned sex columns for Boston Magazine and The Nervous Breakdown, and I’ve been on numerous podcasts too, including Rose Caraway’s Kiss Me Quick’s, Paul Herron’s Anais Nin Podcast, August McGlaughlin’s Girl Boner Radio, and Susie Bright’s In Bed with Susie Bright. Under another name, I’ve worked as an literary magazine editor and am a multiple award-winning literary writer who has been published in Narrative, The Yalobusha Review, Smokelong Quarterly, and elsewhere.

People often don’t get what I mean when I tell them I write about sexuality. My readers, however, do. I treasure them.


Other stuff…

My first kiss took place in a red Mini. It stretched my mouth wide open. It was wetter than I thought it would be. Many years later, when I first kissed Jacob, I realized that kisses could be dreams.

I am non-binary. That’s why I use the pronouns they/them.

I’m a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. My abuser was female. I come out about this in the hopes that all those who have been abused by women, including our caregivers, feel less alone.

Being human is natural.

Mistakes can be gems.

Be yourself and love will come.
