My memoirs, what I wrote of my life from the point of view of feeling trapped in the wrong body is influenced by all manner of things, among them is the book Conundrum which I read when I first began my transition. One aspect I seem to have borrowed from her writings is that I have to some degree, lessened the trauma and pain I experienced throughout. This is in part because I wished to be encouraging of others who are going through similar life changing events and also it’s… Read more A Trans memoir, a human story. →
I am so happy to announce that this second book ” Circé’s Art: a post transition evolution “, different from the first one which is a memoir and yet so intimately attached to it since it is also about my transition and identity as a woman.

It was early evening, just after supper time. I was with a cousin and… Read more Close Call with a Cold Ending ( free peek ) →
