23379923_10155881892266306_9009688597867819195_n I am an American genderqueer San Francisco writer, poet, cartoonist, and artist who spent much of my childhood in Iran in the 1960s, returning to the U.S. at age 16 in 1971. I still sometimes dream in Persian.

Behrouz Gets Lucky is my first novel; Behrouz Gets Lucky is a romantic, literary, kinky, and political novel about two older San Francisco queers – a butch dyke gardner named Lucky who grew up in Ohio, and a genderqueer librarian named Behrouz who grew up in Iran.

You can find my erotic short stories sprinkled in various anthologies, including Best Lesbian Erotica 2015 and Sex Still Spoken Here. I just finished a sequel of Behrouz and Lucky’s shenanigans titled Doily Is My Safeword; publication date to be released.

    Hello. I’m straight, right handed, a recovering alcoholic, a believer in magic and a poet. Your poetry is fantastically wonderful.

    hey, Birdie Lou! Paul told me to come check your blog out–great stuff! I’m a straight mom poet, named after my grandma, who was left handed, and I write a lot about wine, a fair amount about ritual, and have posted a number of my broadsides on my blog. I hope you will publish some of your art!

    I am looking to do a good fall protection ritual using a whole pomegranate…let me know if you have any recommendations!
