Dena Hankins will visit Orca Books for a reading with Eric Andrews-Katz, David Holly, and Jeffrey Ricker. She is touring the Pacific Northwest to promote her queer/trans* romance, Blue Water Dreams, published by Bold Strokes Books and available through major distributors. The tour mixes readings, discussions, erotica reading workshops, and visits to groups for transgender people and their allies.
Publishers Weekly has this to say about Blue Water Dreams: “Seattleites Lania Marchiol, a cisgender woman, and Oly Rasmussen, a transgender man, meet by chance and quickly bond over shared interests…and when Lania and Oly set their differences aside and embrace their sexual chemistry, the scenes are graceful, sure, and spicy.”

“I love these people,” says Dena. “The characters in this queer/trans* romance are fierce, passionate folks struggling to balance magnetism and self-sufficiency, trying to love all the way to the core without losing themselves in the process. You will be rooting for them to get it on and fall for each other. I hope you read the book and fall for them too.”
Dena Hankins writes aboard her boat, wherever she has sailed it. After eight years as a sex educator, she turned to writing dirty tales with far-flung settings and a queer/trans* romance novel, Blue Water Dreams. Read more: www.denahankins.net.
