Things you need to know about me #1

I borrowed a friend’s room for this photo! My own writing space is way more cluttered and filled with trinkets and books that delight me. I have a gazillion notebooks filled with ideas, a comfy armchair scratched and shredded by my cats, and I constantly have a mug of tea on the go.

I love the sea. I moved to Devon in 2011 and swim in the sea every summer (I’m building up to going in all year). I didn’t learn to swim until I was an adult so it feels extra magical to me that I’ve become someone who can enjoy being in the water.

As well as writing about desire, love, and lust, I’ve also worked as a sexual surrogate partner in a sex therapy clinic, and completed Urban Tantra Professional Training.

I’m endlessly curious about how we experience and express our unique sexual selves.

Things you need to know about me #4

When I’m not writing, you’ll often find me indulging my other love – being in the natural world. I have a health condition called ‘lipoedema’ which sometimes challenges my mobility and balance. So, I’m not the most outdoorsy or robust person. However, I get unbridled joy from connecting with the natural world, be that out on a walk on a country lane or watching the birds and squirrels on my lawn.

Things you need to know about me #5

I self-define as:

  • queer
  • kinky
  • gender-responsive (my pronouns are she/her)
  • limerent
  • spiritual
  • perimenopausal

A few more bits and bobs:

  • I have a PhD in occupational therapy (yes, you can call me “Doctor”), a post-graduate diploma in health and wellbeing, and spent two decades working for universities and charities as a health researcher.

  • I am a published erotic author. You can find my books on Amazon and my stories scattered across the internet.

  • I wrote the Sex/Life pages for DIVA Magazine (the leading magazine for LGBTQIA+ women and non-binary people) for two years.

  • I grew up in Scotland but have also lived in New Zealand and England. I now have a soft Scottish lilt that others seem to enjoy (especially when listening to my guided meditations).
