In no particular order, R.A. Padmos is: woman, writer, in a relationship with my wife since 1981 (though we had to wait until 2001 until we could actually get married), mother of two grown sons, owner of cats (I can pretend, can’t I?), reader and a lot more. They started to write stories when they were nine or ten, and haven’t stopped ever since. They published a novel and other fiction and non-fiction. But the internet changed everything, because they discovered there’s a lot more women (and quite a few men) interested in reading and writing m/m stories.
