Flash Fiction: Don't Die Tammy


I may not have overtly mentioned this, but on top of writing gay, lesbian, asexual, etc. fiction/romance, I also do quite a bit of transgender and gender fluid tales.  While I have received support for a lot of my gay titles, here lately I have become absolutely astonished at the shear ignorance and prejudice directed towards transgender people.

Gearing up to work on some really hard-hitting trans titles I've started to work on some smaller projects involving trans, bi-gender, gender fluid individuals.  Today I decided to do a flash fiction writing in celebration of transgender youth suffering in silence.

It's not particularly edited well, but I hope the message is clear enough.  I just wrote a quick little piece entitled 'Don't Die Tammy.'  It's listed in my 'Other Stories' section.  I encourage everyone to read it and really consider what a child like 'Tammy' goes through on a day-to-day basis.  Though the story is a work of fiction, it can and does happen everyday.

Thank you for taking the time.
