Amelia

I am writer, knitter, gamer, geek, queer, sex positive, fat positive, all around no-bullshit artist. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I bring expertise and ten years of real world experience to our writings on mental health and wellness. As an opinionated person, I bring a lifetime of geekdom and outrage to the rest of our content, anything from pop culture to tabletop gaming to that book I’m reading right now. On fiction writing, I’m published now through eXtasy Books and Cleis Press. You can find a full listing of my published works at my website http://www.ameliajune.net.
