Becki Jayne Crossley has had a book in her hands since before she could read.

Since mastering the alphabet and the art of holding a pen, she's been scribbling down stories.

Her first 'book' was was a story about ice cream called Ice Cream, and she is still particularly proud of it.

Currently, she is editing her first novel Tart and pays the bills by working as a copywriter for a technology company.

Aside from writing fiction, Becki runs a blog on feminism, sexuality, mental health, body positivity and gender. You can visit Freudian Sluts by clicking here, or on the tab above.

Becki is also the Entertainment and In The Media editor, and staff writer for online feminist lifestyle magazine The Nopebook. You can contact here there at media@thenopebook.com
