While I honestly enjoyed each story in Come Again, I truly loved, and was even moved by, a select few. My favorite story in the collection was Gift by Dena Hankins. Gift features two women in their 60’s and 70’s exploring lesbian sex for the first time. They have been sleeping together for a few […]
Even better review
I found an even better version of one review of “Gift”, in Come Again: Sex Toy Erotica, on Goodreads: The Gift, by Dina Hankins is a remarkably tender, sexy story of senior lovers, Helen and Margaret. As a senior woman this one resonates with me, for sure. It’s gratifying to see stories of senior sex […]
Some great reviews for “Gift” in Come Again: Sex Toy Erotica
It’s tempting to spend all one’s time on Amazon’s author pages, refreshing the reviews page. Has anyone talked about my work? I stayed away a while and, what do you know, when I went back on, I saw some great mentions of my story in Come Again: Sex Toy Erotica! My favorite story was the […]

Publisher’s Weekly Compliments “Cooling Down, Heating Up”
Publisher’s Weekly reviewed Love Burns Bright while I wasn’t looking, and they said my story “Cooling Down, Heating Up” is “everyday magic“. I dig it!
My Bois Got Picked!
I wrote a while back about submitting a story, Teamwork, to Sacchi Green for a boi-themed anthology. Pending final Cleis Press acceptance, I’m in! Thanks for choosing my story, Sacchi. It’ll be great if we can do a reading for this book like we did for Girl Fever. That was so much fun.
Lizzie’s Bedtime Stories
I’m a featured author on Lizzie’s Bedtime Stories, reading from my short story, “Cooling Down, Heating Up”. The story was published in Radclyffe’s lesbian romance anthology, Love Burns Bright. I had so much fun recording this. Liz gave me the run-down on how the recording would work and I did the reading. Being able to […]
Submitting to Sacchi Green
I’ve submitted a story to Sacchi Green, for a new anthology she’s putting together, Me and My Boi. I love the Erotica Readers and Writer’s Association website for calls for submissions, among other reasons. “Teamwork” is about a couple of college jocks – racing sailors – who decide to complicate their partnership by acting on […]
