"Jean Roberta" (identified this way in most of her published work) was born long ago and far away. She now lives on the Canadian prairies with her female partner (married since 2010). Approximately 100 of Jean's stories have appeared in print anthologies, including the "Best Women's Erotica" and "Best Lesbian Erotica" series & numerous other collections from Cleis Press. Her historical novella, The Flight of the Black Swan, is available in several formats from Lethe Press, including an audiobook. One of her stories was turned into a short film, and her talk on the history of censorship in Chapters bookstore was televised on the community channel.
