Author's Bio

I let myself say the things I was taught not to say, because I was a “good” girl. I have redefined the word good to mean, that which is truthful and authentic; that which inspires growth and heals. This is what I tell people who ask if what I’m writing is pornographic: my intention is not to arouse, but to understand, release shame, and evolve as a divine being having a human experience.
