(Sorry for the lack of real pictures. Our friends and family mostly know we're in an open marriage, but we're more cautious professionally, so we lean toward the discreet. Photos are of course available if we get to talking.)
I'm a professional writer (mostly fantasy/science fiction) and editor with a day job at an arts nonprofit. I like cooking, spirited arguments about books, drinking with friends, watching and talking about movies and TV, walking around the East Bay, and making things up and writing them down for fun and profit.
I'm happily married (in an open relationship with the wonderful VioletWheat). Looking for people it would be fun to talk to and hang out with, and if those friendships develop into more, fantastic.
I've pretty much achieved the things I always dreamed about -- my life revolves around love and art, I'm successful in my creative endeavors, and I can afford to get brunch most weekends -- so at this point I'm just looking to make things even more awesome.
I've been in the Bay Area since 2000, but am originally from the South; I miss the food, but the west coast is otherwise a much better fit for my personality, philosophy, politics, and peace of mind. My drawl does still come out a bit when I've been drinkin' though, y'all.
I am "kinky but not too serious about it" – it's fun in bed, and most of the people I see are kinky to some degree, but it's not central to my lifestyle. (It's not even my fandom – science fiction and fantasy literature is my fandom.) If you want to know if those interests align, I have the same username on FetLife.
