I am an advocate for trans people, for transgender, transsexual, gender non-conforming and LGBTQI living. I not only write for entertainment but to address issues felt by minorities, which includes trans people as a whole and also minority groups within—views both popular and unpopular—with an underlying message throughout of the value of life, mutual acceptance, and mutual respect.
PLEASE NOTE: My characters are usually in some form of conflict, working through issues, struggling with society or sometimes even with their own demons in an effort to find love and respect, happiness in life. A novel may walk with a character through her own hell, then glimpse by the end a new way for her to engage in her life—or an idea may be expressed one way, in one novel, only to be expressed differently in another novel, by the same or another character—how people's views change over time, in different situations, or as seen by others.
Some novels are happy for the most part, such as "Out of the Closet," "Falling in Love" and "Transmutation." "Falling in Love" is particularly romantic, with some devastation, argument; "Transmutation" is also funny, through it starts out with a death and the protagonist's angry refusal to endure that again. "Transmutation" is a trans utopian future. "Hate Crimes" is a combination of a dream come true, hate crimes, and a plea for peace.
Finally, I must note: I think of myself more as a storyteller than a writer. Transitions are expensive, sometimes costing several multiples of an annual salary, and sometimes the treatment industry charges way too much. In addition, when someone is hurting because she needs to change, or when someone's social or financial life has been affected in relation to a transition, money can be even harder to come by. In order to keep these books coming for free, I usually do not use an outside editor as I make no money off these books at all and editors are costly. I spend a great deal of time with each novel, but if a mistake is noted, please email me at email@example.com and let me know.
Without an editor, all these novels are all a work-in-progress, and I do depend on feedback about content. I do respond to such feedback in an effort to please, and go back and revise the novels. When enough modifications are made, I may put a "V" for Version on the cover to quickly indicate.

Thank you, and blessings to all,

This book is long but well worth it. It's spending time int he mind of transgenders and their friends while they live together. It made me hot, cry, laugh, and sometimes I just enjoyed sharing their day. Very pro-transgender and dignity.
I wish my lover would read it. There's more to it than the title suggests.

I love this story, Nuala, Sean, Tova, Nan. It makes me so happy and sick all at the same time. And the greatest thing in it? No. I shouldn't say that. Some of the greatest things in it? While you deal with such miserable excuses for people as her family and whoever is killing----no spoilers----God! Sean loves Nuala so much, and she's a virgin, so their sex is the best. I loved Falling in Love also, but this one is hotter. And Sean loves her so much, he actualy bothers to go talk with other transgenders to learn more about them. I've wished my own family would, but Sean does. And the up-beat way Tova interacts! And the way Sean's family and her new family take to her! I also loved the way Li takes to Nuala, like she adopts her as a sister.
And don't get me started on the hate, here, because I know that kind of thing happens. Some of it, I've experienced, too.
Nothing is more important than allowing people to live in dignity. How can people hurt each other so?
I'm thankful for this novel. I wish my family would read it.
