Best Lesbian Erotica 2015 will contain a reprint of Cooling Down, Heating Up! I’m terribly excited to be in a “Best of” anthology. Right now, I have only one more story out on consideration. Wish me luck!
Captain Dena Hankins writes aboard her sailboat, preferably in a quiet anchorage. She spent eight years as a sex educator, soaking up the most stimulating stories of human sexuality, and is honored to provide some tales in return. She is a queer, poly, kinky, adventurous sailor with so much left to learn!
Being a military brat, wanderlust is deep in her, and she has been sailing since 1999, covering waters from Seattle to San Francisco, across to Hawaii, and from North Carolina to Maine. Whether traveling in the physical world or ranging far in her imagination, she is happiest accompanied by her partner since 1996, James Lane.
Her three romance novels, Blue Water Dreams, Heart of the Lilikoi, and Lysistrata Cove, feature queer and transmasculine leads. The Windy City Times says she has “mastered the art of casual inclusion” and that she will “kickstart readers' erotic imagination—while helping them learn a little bit on the side.”
