Hi! I'm Bethany Frasier, and I write the mythological fantasy series Sapphic Tales, in collaboration with my writing partner, Melissa DJ from the UK. If you Google my full name (Bethany Ariel Frasier), you will find Sapphic Tales, as well as my Native American essays, progressive political blogs, poetry and erotica on Voices in the Wind. I hope to entertain you here, as well.I am half-Cherokee/half Scots. While I'm here primarily for literary pleasures, I'm very open to new friendships and correspondences.
