Trusting my story to my co-writer.

and trusting myself to put it out there. I first began writing my story because of a need to better understand myself, a bit like I have a habit of doing when working on a painting, I will get up from the easel and back away some ten feet and just relax and look at what I have done and then decide on one thing I really want to change in order to improve upon the painting, I do this throughout and it has served me well. I mention the… Read more Trusting my story to my co-writer.

All Stories are New.

Stories, written and in films, often treat trans characters as deficient, as broken, rarely looking any deeper than their appearance. Trans characters in film usual fall into mostly negative narratives, usually dependent upon others good graces for their survival. Family and friends get to be who decides if the trans character will be accepted, tolerated and simply thrown away. My story has not been sensational, my struggles though personal can be found in the lives of so many. My memoirs, I hope, speaks more to resolve and of a deep… Read more All Stories are New.

Why I wrote my story.

My story and why I decided to finally write it. I can say right off that this is not the story of a heroine, because I am decidedly not such a person. There have been many memoirs written by women like myself, women of trans origin. I originally started putting words to my Pages app a few years ago, mostly because I needed to read my own words and work through my feelings and try and get a better understand of who I am. When I began to transition, I… Read more Why I wrote my story.

Book Excerpt ( Why I created My Vagina Paintings )

I must have seen the Monologues at least a dozen times, if not more, and heard how my sisters spoke of their vaginas, what they had been through, what they had experienced. It gave me the courage to speak of vaginas from my perspective, to show vulvas through paintings, in my art.  I embarked on a series of pieces that I shared with all. I believe in the beauty, strength, love, warmth, passion, birth, power, and heart of vaginas. I believe that they can speak to all things and that… Read more Book Excerpt ( Why I created My Vagina Paintings )

BLURB

Breaking Free: 45 Years In The Wrong Body is a dive into my life as I recount certain moments and periods while prisoner of a body that was never mine and how I eventually, after innumerable sleepless nights, attempts at escaping from who I knew myself to be from early on, a female trapped in a male’s body. I manage to survive mainly due to my creative mind, my desire to draw and paint to imagine that I would eventually break free from what seemed to be my destiny. You… Read more BLURB

Kinkalicious ( excerpt )

Kinkalicious ( excerpt ) In 2009, I participated in a three-day exhibition of my paintings in the context of the 2009 Kinkalicious event. On the first day, my art hung in Toronto’s Northbound Leather Boutique and then at a private Club.  The event was a fetish weekend of events and a play organized by Lady V. It was a three-day sexuality extravaganza; a series of workshops and parties to celebrate sexuality in all its forms. It was for kinksters to enjoy themselves but was also made so that ‘vanilla folk’… Read more Kinkalicious ( excerpt )

More than just a story

I just re-read my memoirs because it may come to be that it will evolve into a story that is showcased in a different medium. I know I have what is considered completely original true-story and that it already seems to have appeal for a variety of audiences such as female, male and other genders, for those under 25 as well as seniors. the LGBTQ+ communities, those interested in art. Basically I feel it has a wide appeal though R-rated.#Breakingfree is very much about finding oneself, of surmounting the odds,… Read more More than just a story

Close Call with a Cold Ending ( free peek )

When I was maybe fifteen, I was playing in our backyard on Albert Street. It had recently snowed so the ice rink that my father had made for us to play on was covered in about a foot or more of snow. It was the wet kind; perfect for making snowballs and snowmen. It packed just right and if you made a snowman, it would stay until a good thaw.  I remember this particular incident well. It was early evening, just after supper time. I was with a cousin and… Read more Close Call with a Cold Ending ( free peek )
