Washington DC-based Phoebe Alexander experienced a second coming of age in her early thirties that ushered in a thirst for exploration, both intellectual and sexual. With encouragement from her partner and blog readers, she published her first novel on 12-12-12 and hasn’t looked back.
Phoebe’s novels feature compelling plots intertwined with passionate, fiery encounters. She believes that real, relatable characters can have even steamier sex than billionaires, rock stars, and the young and lithe-bodied. She also advocates for ethical non-monogamy and sex-positive attitudes through her writing.
