A native Texan, Literary Stud discovered her passion for writing at an early age. In elementary school, she penned a serial story on leftover school paper, stored in old folders with the title written on the front. Born between the analog and digital ages, Literary Stud remembers her first typewriter and desktop computer but prefers to hand-write rough drafts in college-ruled notebooks.
Reading and writing are constant companions and Literary Stud often curled with a book from her mother’s bookshelf while sitting in a tree in the front yard. However, she didn’t discover Lesbian fiction until her early twenties – right around the time she bounded out of the closet. She enjoyed the tales of sapphic entanglements but could only relate to half the content. She resolved to write the books she wanted to read. Her books feature Lesbians of Color belonging to the masculine/feminine spectrum and the issues affecting those dynamics.
Literary Stud lives in Fort Worth, Texas, with her wife and extremely spoiled fur baby.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the DFW metroplex, mainly in Dallas. I haven't traveled very far from home so all of my location selections are variations of actual places.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The knowledge that at some point in the day, I will be able to unleash my muse and put pen to paper.
