Writer, PhD student, insatiable reader, tattooed lady, and dog devotee. I've worked as an editor, book critic, columnist, slush pile reader, writing competition judge, hotel critic, magazine editor, English teacher, and research assistant.

My book on flashers, Exposing Phallacy, was published by Zero Books on August 31st 2012.

I am a woman-born woman. An adult female. I have two X chromosomes, a vagina and, until menopause, a menstrual cycle. I’m not unusual in this: in fact, there are roughly 3.52 billion of us in the world right now. These are not opinions; they are statements of biological fact. That biology may not define a woman in totality – she has a vagina, she is not a vagina – but it is fundamental to what...

“Watch out for intellect,
because it knows so much it knows nothing
and leaves you hanging upside down,
mouthing knowledge as your heart
falls out of your mouth.”
Anne Sexton, The Complete Poems

Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick
“It is a rather amazing fact that, of the very many dimensions along which the genital activity of one person can be differentiated from that of another (dimensions that include preference for certain acts, certain zones or sensations, certain physical types, a certain frequency, certain symbolic investments, certain relations of age or power, a certain species, a certain number of participants, and so on) precisely one, the gender of the object choice, emerged from the turn of the century, and has remained, as THE dimension denoted by the now ubiquitous category of 'sexual orientation.”

Kate Gould Got a guest blogging spot on the Zero Books site about the g-shot and o-shot: http://zero-books.net/blogs/zero/magi...


JerriFaye Thomason Hello. Getting ready for the Olympics? I hope you're lucky enough to get to go. For a lot of people it's a once in a life time opportunity. I was lucky enough to visit England years ago. Beautiful countrysides, a land so rich with history. However, we did get one of the Queen's guards to talk to us...lol That was wonderful because we tried hard to get them to talk... So we have wonderful memories of our time there.

Nice to meet you Kate,

~Me~

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Kate. You seem like an interesting person, and a first time author as well, so feel free to tell me more about yourself. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's. My first novel is an unusual murder mystery entitled: FORBIDDEN STEPS.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed
