There's nothing I can't do if it doesn't involve talking to real people! I'm a Black woman in British Columbia, and I have always loved books and writing. Writing came as a natural extension of being a huge blerd; I started writing the backgrounds to my characters in [popular fantasy roleplaying game], then I started writing stories about them, and then as I got older, the stories got dirtier as I explored my own sexuality, fantatsies, and turn-ons. The internet was super slow back then, so I really got into written erotica, which only broadened my horizons more!
For years my stories were either in my head or hastily scribbled and partially typed across several generations of technology. My friends finally convinced me to take the plunge and start putting my work out for others to enjoy! It took a long time to work up to it, and now I'm glad they pushed me. Now I'm writing more, interacting more, and couldn't be happier!
