Hello curious soul, thanks for stopping by!
I’m Anna, I write fiction and non-fiction about women exploring and expressing their fullest and truest sexual selves.
I’ve used writing and storytelling to talk candidly about women’s sexuality for over two decades. At first, I wrote just for me, then as a way of sharing my needs and fantasies with my lovers. Later, I wrote erotic stories that were published, and I also wrote the Sex/Life column for DIVA Magazine for two years. I trained and worked in the field of conscious sexuality as well. Most recently, my book, Desire Lines, (part memoir, part erotica, and part guide for other women who want to explore their sexual selves) was published by The Unbound Press.
If you are someone who writes a journal, a blog, poems or stories, either now or at any time in your past, we probably have a lot in common.
Writing has always been my go-to place to explore and express what matters to me. Is that how you feel too?
How I became a writer of erotica…
I have always written stories but, when I was in my early 20s, I became aware that I was having all sorts of sexual feelings and desires that were new to me, and I didn’t know what they meant or what to do with them. I needed a safe way to explore some of my fantasies and feelings about sex but (ironically) I didn’t feel confident enough to do it with the people I was having sex with. So I began to explore my sexuality through my writing.
At first, the stories were just for me but, as I became more confident and curious about who I was as a sexual being, I began to share my stories with my lovers.
Why I am still doing it…
Over two decades later, I’m still writing. Some of my stories I write for publication. Others I write to tease and seduce my lover. Some of what I write is still just for me. I’ve also explored writing a combination of erotica, memoir, and non-fiction in my book, Desire Lines; seeking new and expansive ways to share my thoughts and experiences as a queer woman, and also as a person who has trained and worked in the field of conscious sexuality.
What I’ve realised is this:
My desires have evolved and changed as I’ve got older, and writing about them gives me a safe (and sexy) space to explore who I am as a sexual being.
