Born in Marin County and raised in Sausalito, by a single father, Sapphire Jones is open to the possibility that she has Daddy Issues.
"I don't think anything we feel is wrong," she shrugs. "And, when it comes to sex--and the intimate details of how we really live our lives--as long as what's going on is between consenting adults, I don't accept that anyone else gets to define morality."
She is similarly unapologetic about her, erotically-inflected, romance writing.
Is it kink?
"'Kinky' is weird-shit-other-people-do. Whatever you do? That's just sex. But sex is always about power," she argues. "We can-- Some people try to deflect or deny that, but . . . it's just a fact. And--look--people who don't like the way I write, or what I write about? Plenty out there to read . . . hope they find something more to their taste."
A graduate of San Francisco's Karpinsky Academy of Modern Ballet, Jones subsequently studied under Toni Bentley, in New York, eventually returning to the Bay Area to work as a freelance tech writer.
